Bargain boots, late night reading and a first day at rainbows #Littleloves

WHY has it taken me so long to join in with Coffee, work, sleep, repeats #Littleloves link up?! I literally have no idea! But I thought this year, I’d finally start. I probably wont manage to get one up every week, but I’m aiming for one a month at least. Anyway for those blogger friends who dont know, its basically just a post to help remind you – no matter how crappy your week has been- about all the lovely things that have happened this week. You can find the full details for the link up here

Anyway, so this week. Its been a bit of a weird one, It was my mums first death anniversary on Tuesday, which kind of knocked my inner balance a bit. But I let myself feel what I needed to and made a promise that I’m only allowed to dwell on it this one day a year. So it was of course back to business by Wednesday morning. Though by spending just that one day not sticking to my ever organised to-do lists and whatnot, the rest of the week has kind of been spent just trying to catch up a little bit. However, writing this post has cheered me up immensely because I’m forcing myself to remember all the lovely bits…

 

Read…

 

This week I started reading ‘ I am pilgrim – Terry Hayes’ It was mentioned on someones Insta stories last weekend with the description of being utterly obsessive. Thats pretty much all I need a book to be. Its only been a bedtime read so far, but already yes, I am a little bit hooked. Its absolutely not my usual type, but its been described as having a bit of a homeland vibe, which I can understand. So yeah. Give it a try if you haven’t, really interesting read. 

 

 

Watched…

 

I haven’t really got in much TV time this week, but when I have, its been to fit in a couple of episodes of ‘The tunnel’ which I’m still hooked on! We binged watched our way through the first 2 seasons, and now we’re on the 3rd and pretty up-to date, I’m kind of trying to stretch them out a little bit!

 

 

Heard….

 

Dolores O’Riordan of The cranberries, sadly passed this week. So literally ever since the news was released, I have not been able to get ‘Linger’ out of my head! She truly did have a distinctively beautiful voice.

 

 

Made…..

I’m not sure this one fits, but I’ve not been very crafty this week or taken any decent photos of my meals *Gasp! And I call myself a blogger!* Ha. But this week, I’ve been giving the Office another decor overhaul (there’ll be more of that up next week..) So, I’ll say I made… the office look pretty again! Ha ha. Anyway, here’s a sneak peek…

 

 

Wore….

I don’t tend to really photograph my outfits. Usually because I generally look like a bit of a scruff bag. But, one thing I’m wearing at the mo, that I’m super in love with are these gorgeous bargain Boots! A replica of the Topshop buckle boots, these were only TEN POUNDS in the sale from Dorothy Perkins. I’ve been wanting them forever, and finally they stocked some in my size -just a bonus that they were SO bloody cheap!

 

 

And lastly…

 

This week i’ve been loving Izzy being five, she’s finally gone back to school after the Christmas holidays/chicken pox dilemma, and each day has come home and told me something new she can do because she’s now FIVE! Another thing she can do now, is start rainbows! She’s been excited to join ever since Mischa started and now finally, last night was her very first session!

 

 

 

SO, thats it. My first Little loves post! What a fun post to write up!

      Oh Its SO good! You should give it a try, it starts a little gruesomely though, but if thats not your thing dont worry it doesn’t really fill the programme. Ah thank you! Its one of those never ending project rooms. I’ll still be decorating it in ten years. Ha ha

    Love the matching sweaters and those boots are gorgeous. Look forward to a full office tour. I need more than a corner space I am overtaking at the moment until loft is built. Hope you have a great weekend. #littleloves

    Oh, what a proud Rainbow! I’ve been re-listening to The Cranberries, it’s amazing how so many people have such affinity with Delores’s voice and such sad news. I hope you’ve re-found your inner balance in such a tough week x

      Oh I absolutely have. Thankfully. Her voice really was just so distinctive, even people who say they didn’t know who the cranberries are, automatically recognise her voice. xx

    I should definitely keep on reading I am Pilgrim. I had started a couple of months ago but as it was a new book I wasn’t hooked. I really liked the first chapters though, must keep going! Have a fantastic week! xx

      Oh Yes! keep reading! I mean, its a biggie. I’m literally just entering into the real core of the story at 300 pages in. Ha ha but I am really enjoying it so far. Lots of interesting facts I didn’t know, and I really do like the narrative. its just left me really intrigued. x
