We’ve been out of the house a lot this week, dinner has been eaten later and the boys have both been shattered by bedtime. It has been fun to be a little out of routine.
This is quite random but I have started a book called ‘The Clan of the Cave Bear’ by Jean M.Auel. It is about a girl who is adopted into a Neanderthal tribe. Jean is respected by renowned scientists, archaeologists and anthropologists around the world for her extensive research. I don’t know much about how Neanderthals lived so I’m very intrigued.
I took the boys swimming one morning and they were both completely ecstatic when they saw the pool. Win jumped off the side hundreds of times and Ru was almost too excited to do anything else other than flap around. I always feel a tad stressed at the thought of taking them both swimming, but every single time it has been absolutely fine. I definitely need to do it more.
Random again, but I have rediscovered Peaches & Cream by 112 and Honey by Mariah Carey this week. The sunshine makes me yearn for songs of my youth.
We have been out a lot this week so we haven’t been getting our craft on, but I have made lots of bits from the Deliciously Ella book including sweet potato brownies, banana flapjack, houmous, bean chilli and peanut butter fudge. All were really tasty and incredibly simple to make.
Jared has problems tolerating gluten and sugar, and we finally feel that we have enough resources to remove both completely from our house. It’s something we’ve been contemplating for a few years, but we haven’t felt ready for it until now. It all went in a bag and out of the house. I felt nervous at first, but a week later I feel so good about it.
Making a coffee with two sugars and milk for a workman this week proved a little tricky though…
My trench coat and my leather jacket – not together! but I have loved being able to wear lighter options.
We are spending this weekend in Cambridge as one of my sisters is getting married there in August. I’ve not been before, so I’m delighted that we’ll get to explore it a little over the next few months.
Win and a couple of his cousins ate their first ice cream of the year. He ate every last bit!
#LittleLoves is a chance to remember all the things that made up your week. Linking up with Morgana.
