Love the Little Things 29-08-14

I have decided to link up with Love the little things this week for the first time.

It’s the last week of the summer holidays this week, it’s hard to believe the kids have been off for 9 weeks. I can’t say I’m overly excited about them going back, if I’m honest. This week has been a week of chilling, and enjoying our time together before Monday.


I haven’t had much of a chance to sit down and read much this week, I’ve been spending so much time with the kids. I did read this article over at the huffington post by the lovely Hayley from Downs Side Up, which really touched me. It’s a letter to a man who made some pretty bold comments regarding children with downs syndrome, and if you haven’t yet read it I urge you to do so.


I took Caitlin to the Cinema for the first time yesterday, as a wee treat before school starts. Neil didn’t want to come because they didn’t sell candy floss (although when we got there we found they they did actually sell candy floss… oops).
We saw ‘The house of Magic’, a lovely film about a cat who stumbles upon a strange house when looking for shelter on a stormy night. It was a sweet movie, Caitlin hasn’t stopped talking about it.
She really enjoyed her first trip to the cinema. She loved the big seats, although she’s quite a dainty little thing and they kept folding back up and trapping her, so I spent most of the movie trying to keep her seat from eating her alive.


I’ve been listening to Ella Henderson’s new song a lot.I didn’t think much of it when I first heard it, but the more I’ve listened the better it gets. I absolutely love her voice.


This week we wanted to treat the kids to take away food, but it’s so expensive. We decided to make our own pizza instead, it’s so much cheaper and just as tasty. The kids enjoy getting the chance to make their own mini pizzas too. If you want to have a go at making your own pizzas you can see my recipe here.


The weather has been a bit funny this week, it doesn’t seem to know what it wants to do, is it summer, is it autumn? This changeable weather makes it difficult to dress, as you don’t know which season to dress for!
It’s certainly feeling a bit cooler, and so I’ve been wearing light jumpers and cardigans a lot this week.
I’ve been feeling very plain recently, but have been glamming up my outfits with funky jewellry.
My favourite is this necklace that my friend bought me for my birthday last week..

I love it!

And lastly…

I got a pretty new blog design this week after a few weeks of feeling a bit ‘meh’ about my old look. I’d been humming and harring over a change for a little while but decided to just go for it and I’m really pleased with it.

    The new blog design is lovely, very pretty.

    When I took O to Milkshake Live we had the same problem with the seats so he ended up on my knee before the seat could swallow him up!

      It's a bit silly, they should put some sort of lock on it so it can be kept down if needed… maybe an idea for dragons den! haha

    This song is fabulous. I have never heard of her but I love this and will have to look out for more of her songs. That necklace is stunning! So pretty. Love the new look. I am dying to change mine too, as I am so over it but I haven't came across any that I like. Great #littleloves

    Hello. What a lovely first #littleloves. It sounds like you had a great week. That necklace is fabulous – they are my kind of colours. I really need to buy more statement necklaces as they are very useful and really jazz up a plain outfit. I hope to see you back at #littleloves next week. Hugs Mrs H xxxx PS I love the blog design – very pretty!
