Sunshine in a bottle
I’m delighted to report, that as I sit here & compile my weekly ‘little loves’ round up, I’m doing so from the comfort of my al fresco office, basking in some highly anticipated British sunshine (can I get a Whoop whoop?)
This week has been a scorcher, by UK standards anyway (it’d take Saharan type temperatures to warm my cockles!) But we’ve had a reasonable amount of sunshine & warmth this week, so suddenly the world seems just that little bit, well brighter? The everyday, mundane activities appear more attractive with a little sunlight beaming down, don’t they? Even though this means I’m in a constant battle with my arch nemesis: pollen, squinting through swollen, itchy eyes- ‘tis a sacrifice I’ll make for Le grand Soleil!
Another week has flown by & it’s time for a brew, biscuit & catch up on life, joining forces with my great blogging crew: Morgana at But why mummy why taking the helm. Lets set sail!
I proclaimed last week that little lord snotface now enjoys sitting still for more then 30 seconds, & has been watching Disney films. This weeks choice has been Pixars’ ‘UP’.
Boy, I loved this film when it was released all those years ago. & Even back then, I cried my eyes out: this week has been no exception & I’ve been an emotional wreck. (I have no idea why, so I’m blaming the film!)
I also had a right good swoon over Davy B. Errrbody loves a bit of Beckeham, right?
In the last few weeks, I’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of talented writers who I have stumbled across, or avidly follow, in blog-land (*whispers* I find myself kinda intimidated sometimes, by the quality & class of writer-bloggers out there) . Honestly, this week I couldn’t narrow down a list shorter than 5 articles that blew my mind. I’ve also got my standard issue of Womans Health at the ready.
Right, I’m going with honesty is the best policy (& all that jazz). Watching the BGT finals & seeing diversity (oh, hello Ashely Banjo!) & little mix perform was AWESOME. So darn cheesy, but I don’t cuuure-go ahead & judge away! *Holds hands up* I confess: Little Mix are my guilty pleasure, & this song rocks.
I’m also completely in luurve with the new JT tune.
I’m useless at keeping secrets, so I’ll try to not give the game away entirely here (just yet). I made a start on some cheeky little gifts for a few special gals
We’ve also made some exciting plans for a short trip over to Jersey next month. It’ll be Mr banana pants umpteenth visit there, but my first. We’re staying with family & a 30th birthday celebration is on the cards (it could get messy!)
Well frankly, this week has been more about the lack of clothing being worn (did I mention already, its been sunny?). We’ve participated in an awful lot of garden play & had many lazy days, so I’ve been donning my 21st century ‘house coat’
& Not forgetting the SPF: Currently in love with this nivea protection.
- …..& in other news:
Some very exciting projects have been discussed this week & are in the pipeline *does a silly-happy dance* (more news will follow shortly!). I spent one evening this week in the wonderful company of some mighty fine bloggers *again, does a silly-happy dance*
We’re all set for a ‘family fun day’ at Bears nursery tomorrow, & a day dedicated to daddy on Sunday (I slightly begrudge these ‘hallmark holidays’ ) with the obligatory home made card & presents.
& Finally, Then there is just the small
bloody huge matter of a blogging conference next week: for which we will be welcoming a very special house guest….all the way from picturesque Ireland! I.cannot.wait!
