We’ve had a great week this week, there’s been quality family time and no illness, hurrah! The sun has been shining too so it’s all been rather pleasant. Onto this week’s #LittleLoves
I’ve started a new book this week and although I’ve not had chance to read much of it yet, it’s by one of my favourite authors Dorothy Koomson. It’s called That Girl From Nowhere and there’s a sentence on the front of the book cover which says ‘Could you keep your child a secret?’ which already has caught my attention and I can’t wait to read more.
I’ve enjoyed watching Five Star Babies: Inside the Portland this week. It’s a documentary showing how the other half have their babies at the private Portland Hospital. There’s no tea and toast in recovery there, more like champers and clotted cream scones! It’s a great insight into how the rich pay for their medical care which I don’t blame them for at all. It’s a great lifestyle to have if you can afford it. Mothers can also put their newborns into the nursery all night if they want to ‘catch up’ on their sleep but I feel a little sad that they don’t get the whole brand new-bonding experience with their little ones. Just goes to show every parent is different.
On the way home from work this week, me and Olly have been listening to a Disney CD in the car. It’s a storybook cd so Olly has been reading the books as the story is read out. His favourite this week is The Lion King and I have to say it’s probably my favourite too!
I’ve made more of an effort to get back on track with my diet this week and we’ve made some yummy meals. My absolutely favourite meal at the moment is homemade SW friendly Chicken Kievs.
They’re a delicious alternative to shop bought ones (without the heartburn) and I can enjoy them on plan too!
On Saturday we all got dressed up to celebrate my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary. I bought this really pretty dress from Dorothy Perkins along with the boxy jacket and I love it.
I haven’t bought an outfit like this for a while but I can wear it in the sunshine on holiday and wear it to the summer wedding we’re going to so I’ll get plenty of use out of it.
Family time this week has been lovely. Over the weekend we saw all my hubby’s side of the family and my Parents, Sister and Nephew were invited to the celebrations too.
It was so lovely for everyone to be together and enjoy a delicious meal and have a catch up.
We stayed over at the hotel and Olly got to enjoy sleeping on the bottom of a bunk bed and we enjoyed a yummy hotel breakfast.
