Another week has rolled by, life is back to something resembling normal, and Friday’s here again, so it’s time to think over some of my #littleloves from the week. As a week it’s been ok, looking forward to an early night and a fun day with our nephews and niece tomorrow (looking forward to/slightly terrified about the fact that we’ll be responsible for 3 children for 24 hours!). So, what have been the little bits of life that have made life better?
I’m well stuck into Lord of the Rings, about 6 or 7 chapters in, and enjoying the story. So far Bilbo has left, Frodo has set off on his journey with Merry, Pippin and Sam, and we’ve met an interesting character called Tom Bombadil in the Old Forest. I love how Tolkein writes; it’s as though you’re reading all his notes, not just the story but all the background info too. Not to everyone’s taste I know, but I’m enjoying it 🙂
A few bits on TV – a programme about puppies winning first prize as the cutest…learnt some interesting tips for dealing with our family dogs, but I fear their bad habits are too ingrained in them!
Back to boring old work clothes..boo, I miss my jeans! But we’re all about being positive, so…I LOVED borrowing my mum’s Jack Wolfskin duvet jacket last night to walk the dog. I genuinely felt like I was snuggled in a duvet..maybe add it to my birthday list? (Upon Googling it and seeing the price – maybe not!)
In amongst all the whiny children telling tales all day long, there are many moments of lovely things that they say. One of the boys in my class in Polish and after he finished his lunch the other day, he said to me,
“That was delicious!”
It made me smile to hear him use that word for some reason, like I find it hard not to laugh when he tells me during maths,
“Me no like this game.” Hehe kids.
Some knittage! I’m well on my way to Blanket Land, finishing it in January is my goal.
I had a really lovely meal with my friends last night. It was so great to catch up and just hang out. We left school over 5 years ago now, and I’ve found that since we left I appreciate them more than ever. We’re hoping to have a holiday together this summer – it’s pretty rare for all 7 of us to be in one place for one evening, so a whole week will quite something!
Linking up with But Why Mummy Why, sharing love of the little things 🙂
