Love The Little Things #16

It’s the last week of the Easter hols and its flown by, but I’ve loved every minute of being at home.  Really not looking forward to going back to work next week, but for now let’s focus on the highlights of the past 7 days.

Read Trashy mags!  On Wednesday I left O with my mum and dad and went for my cut and colour, which is sadly needing to become a much more regular occurrence with the ever increasing number of grey hairs that seem to be appearing.  It does give me a good hour or so to catch up on all the latest gossip magazines in peace!

Watched There’s Something About Mary!  I’ve not seen this film for years.  When I was at uni it was literally the only DVD in the house, and was watched at least 4 times a week, so seeing it brought back a lot of happy memories.


Heard My husband isn’t really the soppy sort, but last Friday night must have found him in an emotional mood.  Hearing your other half tell you he thinks you’re a great mum is the most beautiful thing ever.  Maybe it was the Guinness talking, but it’s a few words I’ll treasure for a very long time.  I think us mums worry constantly about trying to do the right thing by our kids and our families, so when someone tells you you’re doing something right it means the world.

Made We attempted to make some Easter cards this week, but it was a bit of a disaster.  I bought a card kit from Tesco, but there wasn’t enough tissue paper for the cards, I’d bought the wrong type of glue and O was probably a bit too young for the whole thing.  Oh well, at least when you’re making cards for the grandparents they’re not that bothered about how pretty it looks!

Wore We’ve had some lovely weather this week which means it has been the perfect excuse to get my lovely TOMs wedges out of their winter hibernation.  Time to start painting my toenails!


And lastly…I know I should be all cool about this and act like I’m not too bothered BUT…. I made the Top 500 in the Tots100 chart for April.  So exciting and loving my new top 500 badge!

    Oh Jo, Yay! Well done on the Tots 500! And how sweet is your husband to tell you how much you are appreciated – just lovely! The shoes are fab – they look so comfy. And well done for even attempting Easter craft. I do love a bit of cutting and sticking, but my OCD tendencies tend to take over and by the end I’m doing it for the kids!! Bad Mummy! Have a great weekend lovely xx

      Thank you lovely. My husband is generally not into saying the mushy stuff so it was so sweet to hear, bless him!
      I have a slight confession with the a Easter crafts, I was a bit stingy in what I would let O do, and even ended up redoing his bits. Far too fiddly for a 2 year old! xx

    I loved Something about Mary. hahaha Great movie. Wedge season is here. I am a huge fan of wedges. Wish I could wear them all year round. Trashy magazines are the best. I miss them so much. lol Love the craft project I always think my two are old enough start it and then try my best not to get involved and let them do it themselves. So hard. lol Need to let them do it messy instead of me redoing it perfect. hahahaa #littleloves

    Oh yay well done on the tots top 500. I’ve been on it 3 months and I love watching the progress, still a way to go but it helps to have a gauge that the effort is all worth it isn’t it?

    I LOVE that film, not watched it for years so definitely need to sort that out.

    Have a lovely easter xxx
