The Missing, Pasta & Bobble Hats #LittleLoves

Friday, November 04, 2016


It feels so crazy that this week we welcomed November. I know everyone says that time absolutely flies when you have children, but it is so true, and I just can't believe how quickly this year has gone. Saying that, I've really been enjoying the autumn we've had, and I'm almost ready to welcome winter and all the festivities that come with it.

READ



I know I am so behind with this one, but I have finally started reading The Girl on the Train. I'm not very far in just yet, so don't have any opinions to share, but I really hope that it will live up to it's rave reviews. I've also heard that the film is good, so I'd love to go and see that, although trying to get to the cinema as a couple when you're parents is near impossible!

WATCHED



Okay so today I really want to chat The Missing, because seriously, it is blowing my mind. I have absolutely no idea what is actually going on, although I do have a few theories which I will keep up my sleeve in order to avoid spoilers. If you're watching it please let me know your thoughts in the comments, as I would love to know some other people's opinions. And if you're not watching, go and catch up on BBC iPlayer!

MADE



This week I've tried something new, and shared a recipe post of the quick and simple dinner I make on the evenings when we're late home from work. A creamy mushroom, pea and pancetta pasta, this is the easiest dinner to throw together, and it is so delicious. I made it this week and swapped the peas for leeks and it was still SO good. Let me know if you try it out :)

WORE


Instead of telling you what I have worn I'm going for something I haven't - bobble hats. I can't for the life of me find one that doesn't make me look ridiculous. I have a small head, and so most hats look so big and stupid on me, so I am now on the hunt for one that is a bit smaller. Maybe I'll find one in the teenage section of a shop - do teenagers even have smaller heads than adults?!

HEARD



I've followed Emily from the Freckled Fox for a while now after initially finding her via her beautiful Instagram account (which you should most definitely go and follow if you're not already). Her story is one that has stuck with me; mama to five beautiful children, her husband was tragically diagnosed with cancer 18 months ago and he sadly passed away in the summer. Emily herself is a beacon of hope, and her positivity really and truly inspires me. This week I listened to her podcast with the Marvellous Moms Club, and whilst at times her words brought me to tears, her story highlights the fragility of life, and her strength encourages me to live life to the fullest. Go have a listen!

AND LASTLY...


It is bonfire night this weekend, so I hope you all have a really fun, and safe, weekend! We are heading to some fireworks tonight, and hopefully some more tomorrow! We've got Zach's ear defenders from last year, but we really have no idea how he will react. Fingers crossed he enjoys them!

  3. I totally agree about The Missing! I am baffled but I am hoping it all comes together! I managed to find a bobble hat from M&S last year, first time I wore one and it's the only one that suits me! Have a lovely weekend xx

  6. Zach is just adorable. I absolutely love his cheesy grin. Parker will not smile for photos (not on cue anyway!). That pasta dish looks yummy, off to look at the recipe now. I didn't really enjoy Girl on the Train, but I am in the minority. Hope you've had a lovely weekend xx
