New Friends, My Little Family & Sun #LittleLoves

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on last weeks post, they really meant so much at what has been a bit of a tough time. This week has been spent focusing on all the lovely things that I have in my life that I am so grateful for and at times have been a bit guilty of losing that perspective.

Last Saturday I headed off to London to meet up with some lovely bloggers (including a few of our little love ladies). It was so nice to meet up with them in “real life” and it was such a wonderful afternoon with lots of chatting and a lot of Prosecco flowing.

Thanks again for the photo KA xx

I read a book, a whole book, in two days. I do like Jane Green and this is slightly darker than her usual chick lit type books but it was a great read.



I also read this little treat that O had made at nursery. It really made me giggle as I hate cleaning, have never made bread in my life and we’ve only tossed pancakes once. Don’t you love what goes through kids minds?


I watched Bridesmaids when I got in last Saturday. I’ve seen it a couple of times before and it still makes me giggle!

I treated myself to a blazer last week. I’ve wanted one for ages but a lot I’ve tried on look a bit too big and then I feel like I’m playing dress up in my mums clothes. Anyway, I spotted this one in Peacocks and I’m a little bit in love with it, it’s been worn A LOT this week.


I’m so rubbish at this category! I’ve heard lots of chatter at the bloggy meet up. As well as chatting about everything and anything it’s also really nice to chat about blogging with people who get it. My husband listens when I talk about it but he’ll admit he doesn’t get it, at all! The man doesn’t even have a Facebook account!

This week has been all about the smoothies, so I have got the blender out and been trying a few different recipes for my breakfast. This one was my favourite; raspberry, banana and orange.


We’ve also made the most of the sun being out and been in the garden a lot. O loves being outside, he’ll spend all day out if he could, and it’s starting to make me excited for summer.



And Lastly….
For Mothers Day we went back to where we got married for Sunday lunch. It was such a lovely afternoon, the food was delicious and the venue were also giving us Mums a little treat of a facial at a nearby spa (which reminds me, I must book mine in).


And that was our week, actually a really nice one and tomorrow I’m off into Liverpool with a friend for champagne afternoon tea, so excited. Hope you all have a great week!

    Lovely post – you all look like you had such a great time in London. Can’t beat a blogger meet up! Adore the blazer too – I always struggle with them as I feel too formal so I like the idea of a denim/chambray shirt underneath to dress down – must try that! Ax

    Aww Jo-Jo, I’m so glad that your week was a bit brighter. It sounds like such a lovely one to me! The sunshine helps everything, doesn’t it? I love the pictures of gorgeous O and your beautiful daffodils, and most especially that one at the end – stunning! Have a lovely weekend poppet – enjoy your afternoon tea! Yum! 🙂 xx

    You sound much more cheerful this week, which is lovely in itself! You look great in the blazer. I have suit which has come out on occasion, like interviews, but I feel ridiculous! Hopefully the sunshine is going to stick around and your blazer will be retired until next year, and we can all start enjoying our gardens like little O is! Have a great week, don’t do too much cleaning eh!

    What a lovely round up! I just had a little giggle reading your little ones writing from nursery. You’re right, its so funny what goes through their little heads. Your smoothie looks amazing and it looks like you’ve had some great weather. I love that excited feeling when you know the better weather is on the way. Hope you have a great weekend xx

    The photos in the garden are lovely, love your mason jar glass! Still gutted I didn’t make it into London last weekend – we’ll meet at some point! Lovely that you went back to where you got married, this is something Hubby and I really need to do. Have a lovely weekend x

    Tasty smoothie, and such a cute jar to put it in – and straws just make everything more exciting. Hope you had a lovely weekend 🙂 xx
