Independence, sex talk and a giveaway #littleloves

This year is starting off with a bang for us and it doesn’t seem like our forever filling up diaries are going to slow down anytime soon, in fact, if I write this down as ‘projected to be’ our most busy year ever, I wouldn’t doubt it coming true. We have so many trips planned throughout the year and family visiting us from America both my mother and brother separately I feel like it’s just going to be a blur of fun.

We have disney on ice for the kids soon too and more family days out now that MM can walk and is old enough for more fun adventurous things besides feeding, napping and baby talk. It’s great to see it all on the calendar booked and have things to look forward to. January was a hard month for me and I was a bit down and I am glad to pull myself out of that crappy funk and look at the positives coming up. I hate that blah feeling the one that makes you feel like eating bad food, being lazy and those two things together make you feel even worse.

So here is to happiness, being positive and looking at the sunny side of life I will share what I am loving this past week with my #littleloves gang and the gorgeous Butwhymummywhy. Come join us!

Read

We got to review Glitterbelle the Sparkliest Princess Ever and it’s one of those books where the illustrations are amazing and have my two captivated. They must have sat there forever reading to each other which I thought was so adorable. Buba makes up his own versions of the story for Missy Moo and she doesn’t mind. I love that my two love reading as much as Mr P and I do. Hopefully it will stay like that through school.
Glitterbelle Book Review Parragon Books
The kids have been reading their books and while I haven’t got back into any good books yet I have been reading as many blogs as I can for my lack of it over Christmas. Here are some to point out that I read this week:

Not Another Mummy Blog: JOMO: The Joy of Missing Out (I love this so much and so true).

Capture By Lucy: Aeroplane Boy’s Bedroom (I am looking for boy bedroom inspiration for Buba this one is magazine amazing as always).

More Than Toast: Becoming Mum (I love Alice’s honesty and how she writes).

Heard

I heard a little birdy say SEX on youtube, oh wait that was me! I know, gasp! I was on MumTalkTV on Wednesday night sharing my Relationship Advice: 5 Tips to Boost It Now! No, I am no expert but seven years of marriage I wanted to share things that I think can really make or break a relationship. Life gets busy and sometimes all it takes is us turning the technology off and sitting down and giving our 100% attention to each other.

Watched

I have let you all win and we started season two of Broadchurch. It is a little more face pace with the old and the new murder investigation going on so we are sticking with it. Scandal and Revenge are in full force. You all know I am a huge fan, I rave about them every week. And for a laugh we are finishing off Two and a Half Men it’s their very last season ever!

Wore

I continue to let Missy Moo take over what we are wearing at the moment. She has some beautiful new things in her wardrobe and yet she still goes for mine instead. She loves playing dress up and modeling them for us all. It’s hilarious. I don’t think I will ever get my camera bag back! We also just got her this lovely ‘lemon squeezy’ top and skirt from Next. I love their new summer collection, of course because it’s all YELLOW!

Hold your breath, wait for it… nope, I didn’t make anything scrumptious for you to drool over this week. I know I am so sorry. But I am on a new health kick and that comes with healthy eating and cooking so this week I even had the juicer out and juicing after an inspiring event in Leeds.

  1. Oh Missy Moo looks adorable – and no I don’t think you’re getting that bag back either! The Next summer range is gorgeous isn’t it – we popped in the other day looking for something for Kitty and I was a bit gutted they didn’t have anything in her size – did you see the dress with the seaside town on it – it reminded me of home!!

  3. Ah yes, I think everyone is glad to see the back of January, and all the little colour pops that are appearing in the shops and in people’s photo’s, hopefully Spring will make an early appearance! I read about your ‘juicing day’, it looked fun. I still haven’t got round to using mine..- another thing for the to do list!

    Reply
    • Oh I was the same and the event did help motivate me and get me going but what I found is if I keep it in the cupboard it will never be used. While I can’t stand looking at it on my countertop it makes me use it ALOT more because it’s screaming in my face. πŸ™‚

    • I think I shall end up giving it to her too. Although Buba loves it too. Hahaha Don’t tell his father. Lol it’s a good car tote he says. Lmao juicing is good but the machine isn’t pleasant to clean everyday. Been trying to make batch juices in bulk but they don’t taste as good as fresh of course. Lol

  10. Sounds like you have so many things to look forward to this year and you must be super excited for you mum and brother to be visiting. Oh yellow is SO Missy Moo’s colour, it just brings out those blue eyes and totally compliments her golden locks. She is a total mini you Jenny. Where is that camera bag from? I am sure i have seen Katie (MummyDaddyMe) sporting the same one before and it is gorgeous! Have a lovely weekend sweetie xxx #LittleLoves

    Reply
    • Thank you. Everyone seems to be saying that lately I love it as I never thought she would look like me really. Camera bag is from Accessorize and I think there is about ten bloggers that have it too. I don’t share it on my instagram cause it just looks like I am copying everyone. lol I don’t think they sell them anymore though sorry babes. boo.

  14. MM is adorable, I love the pic with the handbag! January is always a bit dreary isn’t it? I often get down in the dumps but have managed to avoid it this year. Sounds like you have a packed year ahead but it should keep you busy! ☺️ #PoCoLo
