It’s The Little Things 14/52 & 15/52

Two for the price of one this week.  Last week was so super busy, that trying to do my Little Things post fell to the bottom of the heap.  Sometimes I have to remind myself that it’s okay – that although I love my blog, Bee and the needs of our family come first. So,…

I’ve been so busy this week that I’m pretty surprised I’m even managed to find time for some Little Things.  But I’m glad I have.  No matter how long my to do list, I always like to make sure that I spend focussed time with Bee everyday.  Time where we’re doing something for her, together.…

Finding the Little Things that have made me smile every week, really helps me appreciate what’s great in my life.  Too often I only see the bad.  The argument about how we were spending our day, or Bee refusing to get in her car seat.  The millionth house viewing that wasn’t quite right, or the…

I love writing about my Little Things each week.  It’s a constant reminder to look for the positives, even when things feel grey and mundane.  It’s inspired by the lovely Lauren from Dilan and Me and Jodie at Dear Little Daisy. This week we’ve had two family outings, so they’ve obviously both made it to…

We’ve had a full week, and sometimes it’s felt like we haven’t stopped.  It’s been pretty full on, and has had some not so fun times.  But the downs have been balanced by some great ups, and the week has been brimming with Little Things. A Little Breastfeeding In Public As a first-time mother, breastfeeding…

This week has simply disappeared before my eyes.  I love this regular post, not only because it keeps my blogging pinned down to a rough schedule, but because even when I think I’ve had a rubbish week, there’s always a Little Thing that has made it brighter. A Little Nail Polish I painted my nails.  I…

Despite my cold persistently hanging around, this week has been a much brighter.  The sun has been shining and the skies have been blue (mostly), which has led to me being outside more.  I’ve walked lots this week, and I feel all the better for it.  It’s these tastes of spring – sunshine, flowers, lent,…

5 Heroines Invited To Our Fantasy Play Date

Do you ever play the fantasy dinner guest list? Invite anyone you like.  Dead or alive, fictional or real, heroines, villains and heroes.  Our lists change, depending on mood, memory, or interest.  But a few big names feature regularly; permanent fixtures at our imaginary party. Since the arrival of Bee, inspirational women and leading female minds have…

This weeks Little Things comes to you from beneath a pile of blankets and through a fog of olbas oil. It all began with our trip to see Gran, who two days later was in hospital – admitted for a fall and quickly quarantined with flu.  First, Dan succumbed, a coughing, shivering zombie, haunting the master…

It’s The Little Things 6/52

Oh how quickly each week comes round.  I see them racing by in front of me.  Each week, Bee growing up just that little bit more.  Sometimes its easy to find the Little Things, other times I have to search a bit harder.  This week was a funny one. A Little Clarity My mind has…
