Confessions of a Reader

'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!


I am currently reading ‘The Dead Wife’s Handbook’ by Hannah Beckerman. I’m only 60 something pages in and it is already tearing my heart open. I can feel that this one is going to be a complete tear-jerker, I am definitely relating to it more now I’m a mummy too!



We actually watched a film together this week (Hubby & I) – Taken 3. I love the first two films, Liam Neeson kicks butt! The third one was good, not as good as the first two, but still worth a watch.


I purchased The Ministry of Sound ‘Chilled’ album this week. Some good tunes on it, although I always get sucked in by the adverts and then I’m a little disappointed. A good album to play when having a lazy moment though.


I haven’t really made anything this week, although I am planning to try and fit in some baking next week.


Sunglasses! Again, the weather has been lovely here. Also, P looked adorable in his swimsuit for his first time in the pool.

And Lastly

We took P for his first swim this week. It was brilliant, he loved it. He looked so cute in his Mickey Mouse swimsuit. He loved floating and splashing in the water, and was full of big smiles and giggles.

I have been teaching a lot this week. I work for a local centre that takes foreign students and teaches them English. The young people stay with host families, go on trips and outings, have lessons and are provided with an activity in the evening. I provide an activity – StreetDance. It is always such good fun, it just takes up my evenings. I taught over 150 students in the space of 6 hours! It has been great to get back into teaching, I am absolutely loving it again.

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

  1. I’m envious that you’ve had enough sunshine to need sunglasses! Teaching street dance sounds like great fun, I don’t know where you find the energy though! # littleloves

    • I know, the weather has been lovely here. Teaching has been really good, lovely to get back into it. It is tough looking after your LO all day and then doing two hours intense teaching in the evening. A few nights off now though 🙂

  2. Don’t Ministry Of Sound albums always do that? They put all the best songs on the advert so you go and buy it but the rest of it isn’t that great! I liked Taken 3, it was Taken 2 I wasn’t a huge fan of! xx

  3. Love the idea of your local centre, what a great service to offer. I bet teaching street dance was loads of fun, tiring though! xx

  4. Oh gosh I read that book last year and it is definitely one of the most heartbreaking things I have ever read. It’s so beautiful though, and for a debut novel it’s incredible.
