Hanson, Camping Plans & a new Backpack #LittleLoves

Friday, June 16, 2017


Thinking back now, this week has been quite a busy one, but it hasn't really felt it. Life seems to have slowed down a little as the weather has become warmer, and it feels like summer is well and truly here. I'm so excited for the next few months, so hopefully I will have lots of lovely things to tell you about!

READ


So I have to be totally honest; I am still working my way through The Two Towers from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I haven't really been picking it up, partly because I was getting a little confused about what was going on, but mainly because I just haven't made any time for reading. Vowing to change this, as I really want to get back into my books!

WATCHED



At the weekend we headed to London to watch Jono's favourite 'guilty-pleasure' band Hanson perform live. Let me tell you, it was brilliant. It was a mix between die hard fans who new every word and people who were only really there for MMMBop, but it was so happy and carefree; the perfect antidote to everything going on in the world right now.

MADE

This week I started making plans for our camping holiday which is quickly creeping up on us! We're off to the New Forest in the middle of July for seven nights in a tent with a two year old - somebody remind me why we thought this was a good idea? If you have any recommendations for things we should do while we are there, please let me know in the comments!

WORE


I have been wearing my new backpack from ASOS everyday this week and absolutely loving it. I have wanted one for a while as my poor right shoulder feels so weighed down by my handbags, and luckily I managed to get this one when ASOS had their 20% off sale. I'm not sure ow long it will last as I tend to break bags quite quickly, but so far I am loving it!

HEARD


I have really been enjoying listening to podcasts recently, and my current favourite has to be At Home With... by bloggers Anna and Lily. In each episode the visit the home of a successful and inspirational woman (I'm not sure if they will all be women, but they have been so far!) and discuss their careers, which I have found absolutely fascinating. Definitely go and give it a listen!

AND LASTLY...

I just wanted to say that this week my thoughts have been with those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire in London. I can't seem to tear myself away from the news, and I can't begin to imagine the terror that the people inside the tower block faced. It is a stark reminder of just how fragile life is, and I for one have never felt so lucky and grateful that my little family are alive and well.

  1. Oh I have not jumped on this podcast bandwagon and not listen to them before but this sounds like a good start one for me. I love the idea of it. It took me a while to get through lord of the rings. Another good one is the Red Queen series I got through those in a like a week. hahaha Happy weekend ahead in the sunshine. #littleloves

  2. Beyond jealous that you got to see Hanson! OMG. I bet it was amazing. I've been trying to find some good podcasts, so will give this one a try. I've read or seen LOTR, it hasn't ever interested me.

    Enjoy your weekend xx

  3. Aww, camping is brilliant! We used to go with our oldest, and took our youngest for the first time last summer when he was 3 and he loved it. We'll miss it this year as we have a new baby due, but might attempt it next year with a one year old! The early mornings might be tough, as it gets so light in a tent, but as long as you have toys and food you should be ok! And the New Forest is beautiful *jealous*

  4. Hanson are touring!? And they were in London?! How did I not know this?! That sounds AMAZING. I read the Lord of the Rings books when I was a teenager and I don't think I could read them as an adult - there story is so hard to follow and all the characters... It's the sort of book you really have to dedicate time to. Have a lovely Fathers Day tomorrow x

  5. The Hanson concert sounds fantastic. The podcast too, I've been looking for another one to listen to. Good luck in a tent with your little one! I love the New Forest, we used to go down there all the time when my daughter was little. My mum had a cottage in Brockenhurst and it's lovely down there. Lymington where the ferry to the Isle of Wight leaves from is pretty too, as are all the villages really. And of course you can't miss a stop off at Paulton's Park for Peppa Pig World on the way home. Have a good weekend x

  6. I used to love Hanson! I remember getting their first album on tape for my birthday and jumping for joy!
    Thanks for the podcast recommendation, I'll definitely be having a listen.
    Let me know where in the New Forest you'll be as my inlaws live down there so if you're near them I'll give you some ideas for places to go. xx
