Love the Little Things 10-10-14

Hello my lovelies! I've felt as rough as a badgers bum this week, but here's what has been getting me through my sniffles and head aches...


I actually read a book this week... a whole book! I ordered it from the little mobile library which comes to our village once a fortnight, and it arrived in last week. It is 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time' by Mark Haddon. It's written from the perspective of a teenage boy with aspergers. I have read it before, many years ago, and loved it then, but it has so much more meaning to me now, and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It's rekindled my love for reading a bit too, being the first full book I've read for almost a year. There is really nothing nicer than curling up on the sofa with the fire on and getting stuck in to a good book. I'm looking forward to re-visiting the mobile library to pick something new to read...


X-Factor has been the only thing on my screen this week. I love a bit of X-Factor each week, it's my opportunity to put my feet up and ignore my phone. I'm looking forward to live shows starting this weekend because I'm loving some of the contestants this year, and the live shows also signal that Christmas is in sight! (Yes... I'm already getting excited for Christmas!)


This song was released when I was 19! I used to love this, and hadn't heard it for a long time when I somehow came across it on spotify. It brings back memories of being a dirty student and it made me smile a bit. It sounds just as good now as it did then!



I've barely even made my bed this week I've felt so ill...


It's been a pj's and tracksuits kinda week this week. You can get away with that kinda jazz when you are feeling a bit rubbish though can't you? I'm hoping no one has noticed I've been wearing the same dodgy old paint stained adidas trackies now for the school run for 3 consecutive days but all sense of fashion and pride goes out of the window and I literally throw on any old junk when I know I'm going straight home to put my jarmies back on!
Hopefully I perk up soon because I'm looking forward to getting dressed in some cute jumpers and boots for autumn.

And lastly...

My living room has had a bit of a makeover this week, complete with a stags head and everything. It's the first time I've had a living room with an actual style, and I love it. I'll be posting more about that later in the week so keep an eye out for that!

I'm joining in with Love the Little Things from but why mummy why?

  1. So sorry to read that you've been poorly. It sucks having to still do the school run doesn't it. I'm not feeling great today and totally just threw on whatever was comfy and close to hand!
    Which song did you pick for heard? It's not showing up and I'm desperate to know.
    Will be looking out for the post about your living room - love interiors posts.
    Have a lovely weekend and hope you're feeling better xx

    1. Oh it looks like my blog is playing silly beggars, the song should be working now, but it's Maximo Park - My Velocity.
      It is rubbish having to do the school run when you are not feeling well, but you can't take a sick day when you are a parent can you haha.
      Have a lovely weekend pet x

  2. Seems a few have been poorly this week, I hope you pick up for the weekend! It's set to be chilly but sunny, well in Staffordshire it is!

  3. I read The Dog In The Night-time a few years ago when I was teaching a student with Aspergers. Great book and really helped to give me an insight what was going on in his head. Sorry you've not been feeling well, hoping you're better now . Xxx

  4. Sorry to hear you've been poorly but at least it gave you the chance to finish a great book! I've been catching up on the X-Factor slowly this week, am totally in love with Andrea :) #littleloves
