Spring, Country Walks & Wonderful Friends #littleloves

Is it just me or is there a hint of spring in the air? Yes, it’s still been bitterly cold but yesterday as I went to pick O up from pre-school there were a few snowdrops dotted around and a slightly thinner jacket than my usual big mum coat was able to be worn. With the sun beating down and the birds singing it definitely felt very spring-like.

On Thursday after dropping the little man off at pre-school I treated myself to a spot of lunch at Costa and had a flick through House Beautiful magazine. It was lovely to have a bit of time on my own, away from the house and to gather a few ideas together for the house. We’ve been in just over 5 years and it feels very cream and brown and I am desperate to get more colour into it.



O had his first proper big boy haircut. The previous times I have taken him to a children’s hairdressers where they have just whipped the clippers out but yesterday we went to Daddy’s hairdresser and had a proper trim. I was so proud at how well behaved he was (and I think he was completely in awe of his hairdresser).


I did have a Revenge marathon on Saturday and watched 3 episodes back to back whilst O had a huge nap. Throw a hot chocolate into the mix and it was my idea of weekend heaven. Ā I still can’t believe that David Clarke is really alive!!

I’m really failing on this one at the minute, but the best thing I heard this week was that there is going to be a new Paw Patrol pup. My little boy loves the show and we both can’t wait to meet Everest.

My February bucket list! The gorgeous Beth at Twinderelmo has started a new linky and I joined in on Saturday. I’m also quite chuffed to have managed two of the list already.

Getting out more was on my Bucket List

I’ve also made a train ticket booking to go and meet up with some lovely bloggers in next month in London. I am so excited and there will even be a few of our little loves gang there too.

Can’t wait to meet you properly Little Wood Life lady!

I’m failing with this one too. It’s not been the most exciting of weeks but I have been wearing my lovely green wooly hat and scarf my brother bought me for Christmas a few years ago. It was not something I ever would have chosen for myself but I love it.

And Lastly….
If I’m being honest, this has been a really tough week for me. As someone who normally puts a brave face on and gets on with things, it’s been really hard to admit I’ve been finding everything a bit overwhelming. What I have been so very grateful for are some amazing friends who have spotted that and been there to support me and make me feel like I’m not on my own.

    Sorry to hear you’ve been feeling a bit down, glad you have lots of lovely friends to give you that much needed hug! I think your February bucket list is a great idea, especially since this is still hibernation time for me. Maybe a list would motivate me! Hope you have a lovely weekend #littleloves

    Lovely photo of your son at the hairdressers. We had to sit on my son and do it ourselves because he was so terrified of the hairdressers. Luckily he grew out of it! Sorry to hear you are down at the moment but happy that you have friends around to help lift your mood xx Have a lovely weekend xx

    Sorry to hear you’ve been having such a tough time of things but sounds like you’ve got a great support network of friends. Spring is definitely in the air, Mr B said to me only this morning if it wasn’t for the fact it’s so bitterly cold outside you would think it was Spring. I have two major Paw Patrol fans here so we are super excited to meet Everest too! Hope you have a lovely weekend xxx #LittleLoves
