'Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.' – Mason Cooley





#LittleLoves is a linky held over at But Why Mummy Why. I thought it would be fun to join in with this once a week.

The idea behind the posts is that they are a weekly chance to remember the little things you’ve loved that join up to make your week. You don’t need to be a parenting blogger to join in, all bloggers are welcome!

Better late than never this week!


I have been reading The Ship by Antonia Honeywell this week. I am enjoying it but with such a crazy week haven’t been able to immerse myself within a book like usual.

The Ship


I have been binge-watching Hollyoaks this week. I normally have at least 5 episodes on my SKY+ so I’m never up to date! I loved the return of Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway too. My favourite programme of the week is probably The Great British Sewing Bee, I love watching the creations and would love to have a go at sewing myself.

My little P laughed for the first time this week. He only did it the once (despite my best efforts to get him to do it again). My husband missed it, I’m sure we will hear lots more of it soon. It was the most adorable thing, ever!


We made pizza this week! It was a nice change from shop bought, at least we knew the contents.


Our Mothercare Baby Carrier. We went to Denmark this week and used this to hold P around the airport. It was a life saver, although not so sure it will be as easy when he is bigger. It was nice to feel like he was safe with me, he seemed to like snuggling in it – he feel asleep the whole time.

And Lastly

We went to Denmark to visit my sister-in-law this week. We only went for two days, but for our first flight and holiday away from home with a three month old I felt this was enough. P was brilliant on both flights, falling asleep both times. It’s amazing to think that he has been on an aeroplane already – at 3 months old. It was lovely to catch up with the family and Denmark is a lovely place to visit. It is so clean and the culture is so different to here in the UK.

We also went to The Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury to watch Shrek. It was a lovely afternoon out – we even managed to grab lunch. I missed P massively but mummy and daddy time was lovely. The show was fun (not the best I’ve seen) but still worth the watch. Gerard Carey was by far the show stealer, his portrayal of Lord Farquaad was just pure genius.

Hope you’ve all had a good week, would love to know what you’ve been up to!

  1. Sounds like you a lovely time away. I’m a big babywearing fan here – slings are great for travelling!

  2. Baby laughter is amazing. My hubby used to say the baby carrier was like getting a “big hug” from our daughter constantly. I used my yesterday to walk to town but I hurt my back. I feel like I am getting old! Have a good weekend!

  3. I used to love our baby carrier. They are so nice to use and practical too. I’m loving the Sewing Bee too. I think it’ll be a male winner this time around. I’m inspired to make a kilt after last weeks show!
    Hooray for baby giggles. They re the best thing ever x

    • Thanks for your comment. The baby carrier was so practical, better than getting our pram trashed on the plane! The Sewing Bee is brilliant, I’m rooting for Neil. He is just so skilled. Wow, those kilts looked so technical! Yeah, the baby giggle was just wonderful 🙂

  4. Sounds like you’ve had a wonderful week. I’d love to go to Denmark, I had Danish friends as a teenager and I’m kicking myself that we’ve lost touch as I’d love to go over and see them again. Thanks for linking up! xx
