Love The Little Things #32 & 33

I have a little confession to make, I completely forgot to write my Little Loves post for last week. It was floating around on my (in my head) to do list and before I knew it it was Sunday night and I still hadn’t got round to doing it. I’m going to blame holiday brain, as at the moment I can barely keep track of what day it is.

Read I still haven’t got round to reading a book this holiday. I don’t know where the time is going, the days are just flying by. I’m not even managing to catch up on my blog reading, I’m so behind!

Watched On Tuesday me and O went off to watch Milkshake Live (huge thanks again Life As Our Little Family for the tickets). I wasn’t too sure what to expect and was also worried O might be a bit young to sit through it all but he loved it and couldn’t take his eyes off the stage the entire time!


Heard I’ve been loving the Magic song Rude this week. Such a summery song for blasting out in the car.

Made Well, we made a lemon drizzle cake but without the drizzle. O isn’t really a sweet tooth but he does like cake, as long as it’s just a plain sponge. Any icing or decoration and he won’t touch it, so we ended up making a plain lemon sponge.

O has been making a mess. I’ve been trying to do a but of a sort out the last week as it feels that we have stuff everywhere but O’s attempts at helping result in lots and lots of mess!


Wore with the weather being slightly cooler this week I’ve been thinking about Autumn and treated myself to a lovely jumper from Zara with the Trafford Centre vouchers I still had left from Christmas. And it’s been a great excuse to wear my new Abercrombie cardi. I do love a cardi!


And lastly…Yesterday was A level results day, always a nervous time as the kids are worrying about their university places. I was so proud of how well they all did, and there were some amazing individual results. Such a pleasure to have worked with a fab bunch!

    Definitely yes to that jumper. Love it. So cute. I love Fall time and all the sweaters and cute Fall outfits coming out. Hard to think of it while I am sitting in 100 degree weather but I am sure I will be ready for some cooler weather soon. Love O’s mess. So cute. Looks like he is having a lot of fun. I am hosting next week’s while Morgana is away, I hope to see you there. #littleloves

    I love a good cardie too. It’s becoming part of my staple outfit with jeans. We’ve listened to Rude so much this year even Z sings it in the car 🙂
