I wasn’t too sure whether I was going to join in with Little Loves this week, I haven’t written my usual Friday post for a while and I have to admit I’ve been missing thinking about the lovely things of the past seven days. O is in nursery today as all the grandparents are off on their jollies and seeing as he usually sulks if I’m there too early I thought I’d put together a few little loves before heading to pick him up.
I picked up The Sleeper by Emily Barr from our local carnival back in the summer and have just started reading it in the past couple of weeks. I’ve read a couple of her books and they do grip me straight away and this is no different. You may find me tucked up in bed at 9pm later with a cuppa and my book.
We took a little trip out on Sunday afternoon to go plane spotting so we watched lots (and lots) of planes taking off and landing. There is a pub that is virtually at the side of Manchester Airport so O was in his element.
Pass, I’ll do better with this one next week.
A little bit of a lame one, but I am very excited that we have made an appointment for someone to come and put our wallpaper up. My husband is the worst DIY’er ever, and there is no way I would have let him attempt to put them up. I can’t wait to see my beautiful Laura Ashley Summer Palace wallpaper up rather than stacked in the corner of the dressing room.
My 3 year olds hat! I picked this up for him from Boots last week (age 3-6) and it fits me perfectly, and is ridiculously cosy. I may claim it for myself.
I’ve been feeling a little bit out of sorts lately and this often happens in September. Once the initial new school year optimism has worn off and the reality that there is more to do than there was last year but with even less time the anxious part of me starts to resurface. I always find it hard to go from being chilled out and relaxed holiday mum to back to work mum, especially as O also struggles with the change as he has got used to me being around.
I had a good chat with hubby (with wine and big hugs) and he always puts things into perspective for me. I need to be a bit kinder to myself and try not to get too stressed out about the little things.
