Sherlock, Boyfriend Blazers and Baby Clothes #Little Loves

This may be a little bit late but Happy New Year.  Towards the end of 2015 it was a bit hit or miss if I joined in with Little Loves but that is something I want to correct for this year.  I really love focusing on those little things in the week that have made me smile and they are lovely posts to look back and read.

The first week back in work is almost over and I am really looking forward to the weekend, we have no plans and I can’t wait to have a bit of a chill, especially now that my house is back to normal.


A bit of an old favourite but after watching Stick Man on Christmas Day we have been reading that a few times this week, I love reading it to O and he loves it too and has now started joining in with the words that he knows.



On New Years Day I watched the one off episode of Sherlock, did anyone else find it really confusing?  Admittedly, I was a bit tired watching it and wasn’t really focused for the first half hour but I seemed to spend quite a bit of time rewinding to make sense of what was going on!  Despite all that, I still really enjoyed it.


An effort to get the paints out with O.  He loves painting but I have to admit I usually try to avoid it when I can (bad mum).  Yesterday we got all the paints out and coloured in some pictures together and it was a really lovely way to pass an hour.


My brother bought me this lovely blazer from Topshop Maternity for Christmas and it is so comfy and is perfect for throwing on with a pair of jeans .  I think it will get worn a lot in the next few months.



On a side note I have also been wearing a bit too much make up.  My skin has gone really blotchy in this pregnancy so I’ve been having to cover up.


Our baby’s heartbeat at my (very late) 16 week midwife appointment.  I took O with me and his little face lit up when he heard it.

On the radio I have been, and I’m not proud to admit this, Justin Bieber.  I love all of his recent songs but especially this one.

And Lastly…

We found out a couple of weeks ago we are expecting a baby boy and so the shopping has commenced.  We already have so many things from O so I am trying to bot go daft but sometimes you just can’t resist a newborn outfit can you?  How cute is this?

Have a lovely week and see you next Friday!

    I really loved Sherlock, but I know what you mean, I really had to pay attention to keep track of what was going on and at times I had no idea where it was going!
    That blazer is fab, I’d be wearing it all the time. Like you said it’s perfect to throw on with jeans.
    Oh my goodness I love Justin Bieber, and that is something I thought I would never ever say! His recent stuff has been so good.
    Have a lovely weekend xx

    We sat down really excited about Sherlock and ended up both being like…err, what just happened?! It was kind of clever and kind of confusing and kind of pointless all rolled into one I think! I love the little outfit you’ve bought for baby, so gorgeous. Have a great week x

    We’ve not watched sherlock yet (was on too late for me!). Sounds like it will have to wait unitl I’m not falling asleep at 8pm so I can attempt to keep up. We loved stickman though. Baby clothes are too cute to resist aren’t they? I’ve not bought any yet this time round but I have bought a few other bits and bobs.

    Oh I am loving Justin Bieber at the moment, I was worried I was having a mid thirties crisis but everyone seems to be liking him! I love your Blazer. Have a lovely weekend x

    I’m loving Justin Bieber at the moment too. He must have some new writers or producers or something as every song he’s released in the last few months is brilliant, unlike the usual rubbish he churns out. That little outfit is so cute! I miss baby clothes. Have a great weekend x

    That Justin Bieber song is my ultimate guilty pleasure at the moment. I adore it and crank the radio up whenever it comes on. I tell myself it’s ok as Ed Sheeran wrote it….! We love Stick Man too and that blazer looks super comfy! x

    You’ll have a little football team soon! I’m sorry about your skin lovely, have you tried double base? You’ll get it from the dr on prescription, foc. Worse case increase your water consumption to flush you out. Don’t you just love those pregnancy hormones! You can’t be a blazer, you should also pick up some kaftans, perfect for adding a layer x

    I have been loving painting too, well by my loving, I’ve been getting them out and letting them get on with it haha, the 9 year old is great at supervising. It’s such a nice way to spend an hour or two when it’s cold and dreary. Congratulations on finding out it’s a boy, how exciting. That blazer is gorgeous and I also love that song. Have you heard the Craig David version of it, totally old skool but amazing. xxx have a great week lovely
