I intentionally missed out on #LittleLoves last week. A long weekend is precious and I wanted to keep it all to myself. Greedy of me, I know. All I will say is that we spent it with lots of friends and family and that we ate too much chocolate, of course! Over the weekend I was introduced to a new game called ‘Set’ that we played about 100 times. My family (including me) are all very competitive and it is great fun.
I have a stack of proper books waiting to be read, but I’ve been naughty and bought ‘Deliciously Ella’. I have been looking at it all the time and I am already a big fan. I feel ridiculous saying this, but I feel like my cookery book collection is complete. I wondered what could possibly be in there that is different to all of the others, but I was mistaken. It’s really, really fantastic and very simple. I have no plans to become a vegan though.
Last week I watched ‘Something’s Gotta Give’ when Jared was out one night last week. It’s very unlike me to watch a film. I probably wouldn’t watch it again but I definitely enjoyed it.
Another thing I have ‘watched’ is Winston riding his bike. He hasn’t been on it for a couple of months and I could not believe the difference. He rode the whole way to town (about 1.5 miles) without moaning. Absolutely unheard of. He usually rides it for about 10 minutes and then decides he is too tired. I could not believe my eyes, or ears! The t-shirt was a happy coincidence.
This week I’m planning on watching, ‘The Truth About Fat’, ‘The Truth About Sugar’ and ‘The Truth About Calories’ on BBC iPlayer. Anyone that knows me will know how excited I will be about them.
A bit geeky but I have really noticed the birds in the evening. I’ve purposely been keeping the windows open so I can hear them chattering away.
We’ve made quite a few things this week which are detailed in ‘Activities to welcome spring‘. We’ve pressed flowers, planted seeds and made some spring flowers of our own.
I’ve also been experimenting with ‘courgetti’ this week that I make using a Zoodle Chef spiralizer. We’ve had it on pizza and in stir fry. I love the Zoodle Chef one because it’s so small. All the other spiralizers seem to be huge and we simply don’t have the cupboard space.
I decided to take all my winter coats upstairs and swap them for my lightweight ones. I’ve been living in a khaki green number with gold detailing. My Office pool sliders that I bought last summer have also made a few appearances – something I thought I would never ever wear!
Jared and I attended an evening wedding reception so it was nice to have the opportunity to dress up. I wore this ASOS skirt and a vintage white lacey top that I borrowed from one of my sisters. I love having fun with textures and colours. We got to spend the night at a hotel, which was such a treat. We stayed at Fantino’s in Sowerby and it was really lovely. The breakfast was particularly yummy and the staff were super friendly!
On Wednesday night I met up with a very special friend of mine. We usually go out for a meal in Leeds or she comes to mine for lunch. We both had an amazing bento box at Little Tokyo in Leeds. It’s cosy, and oh so tasty! Another favourite of ours is The Corner Cafe in Headingley.
#LittleLoves is a chance to remember all the things that made up your week. Linking up with Morgana.
