Friends, Panorama and lasagna – #Littleloves

This week has been social and I’ve loved it. Everything has come up last minute and somehow it’s all fitted in perfectly. The summer holidays don’t make too much difference to us, but we do get to spend time with friends we don’t see very often. We spent last Friday at Clifton Park in Rotherham with friends, and although it was very cloudy the boys had a great time in the water fountains. It’s the first time I’ve been and it’s really fantastic.

My sister gets married next Saturday and I’m heading down to Cambridge on Wednesday or Thursday to help with prep. I am so excited, and I really hope the sun is shining for them. I’m speaking at the wedding service and need to sit down and finalise my thoughts. I don’t want to be worrying about it last minute!



I’m really enjoying ‘Hippy Dinners’ – it’s light hearted but I feel like I’m learning lots. Red magazine has popped through my door, so that too, of course.


Following lots of recommendations I decided to watch ‘The Outcast’ one evening. I’m gearing myself up to watch the second episode, because it was all just too sad and emotional. Talking about sad things, I watched Panorama ‘Terror on the Beach’ too, about the shootings in Tunisia. It was completely harrowing and made me feel physically sick – horrific.


…more Taylor Swift.


Other than a lasagna that we all really enjoyed – not a lot. I’m determined to make the boys something to wear for my sisters wedding next Saturday. A shirt and shorts, or trousers – we’ll see!

I took the boys to a bush babies activity on Monday and they made a butterfly and a caterpillar. It was such a lovely, simple morning. It’s on every week during the holidays and we’ll definitely be going again.  IMAG2496



Unfortunately, lots of boots and jumpers, but Rufus did get a new pair of wellies that are rather cheery.


And lastly…

Tonight we are having five of Win’s cousins for a sleepover. Call me crazy, but I literally cannot wait!

Have a brilliant weekend.

      The sleepover was honesty fine. To be honest WIn was the loudest and most annoying – by far! I think he was so excited! xx

    As ever, in love with all your pictures! The idea of 5 littles does petrify me ha, but actually once H is at the age for sleepovers I am sure I will love it. Have a wonderful weekend xx

      Thanks Sian! The sleepover was great fun – I went to bed about 9 though in case they all got up super early! xx

    Ahhh I love his new wellies. Looks like you are still getting out for adventures with the rain. Good luck with a sleepover they are the best. I don’t know if I could handle my two and five cousins you are so brave. Have a lovely weekend. #littleloves

    It’s funny how you feel kind of affected and unaffected by the summer holidays before your children start school. Looks like you are having a nice summer though. I love those yellow wellies!! And the mac too! Hope you have a lovely weekend Xx #littleloves

    Wow! You’re going to have a full house, hope the kids have a great time. I’m sure they will!! I love the yellow coat and wellies! I really want to get Charlie and Noah some like that. Hope you’re having a good weekend! Xxx

      Winston was definitely the most annoying by a mile. It was pretty cute how excited he was, but all the others were like: “He keeps laughing and poking us”! x

    Those bright wellies are needed to brighten up our UK summer! Bush babies sounds fab!

    You are so brave having 5 for a sleep over, i hope it went well!

    I felt the same about the first episode of ‘The Outcast’, the second half is not as emotionally draining, i promise. Have a great weekend x

    Hope your sister has a lovely wedding, and you have a lovely day too of course! I got married a couple of weeks ago! I love the yellow wellies; I’ve wanted some for Ava for ages. Hope you have a lovely week xx

    Love the yellow wellies, so cute. We watched Panorama too, it was so sad, I didn’t realise how long it had taken for emergency services to arrive.
    Hope you have a fab time at your sisters wedding xxx
