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 have been reading The Breeders by Katie French this week. I have been in such a big reading slump this month, a YA Dystopian seemed to be what I needed to get back on it.


I have also counted up all of my physical TBR books this week, I have 66! This isn’t a lot compared to some bloggers, but I still need to tackle this. Especially as I am now only receiving statutory maternity pay (which is pants!) – so no more book buying for me!


The Walking Dead…still! Also, Alan Carr Chatty Man – I love, love, love Alan Carr – never fails to make me roar with laughter.


Haven’t really got anything to add in here. Any good audio book recommendations? I can borrow them from the OverDrive library app 😉


I have been really happy with my meal planning and organisation this week. I have actually done the weekly shop and planned all my meals, making dinners for every evening – without resorting to a takeaway! Yes!


My pyjamas! So cosy 🙂 Been loving slouching in the evenings, with the dog, reading blogs and watching rubbish TV.

And Lastly

Parker had his last set of immunisations this week and was surprisingly good. He cried a little, and then was straight back to smiling and laughing. My mum & I also took him swimming again this week. We can’t stay in the pool long as he gets cold so quickly – I’m debating whether to get him a ‘BabyWarma’ – like a wetsuit that keeps babies warm in the pool. Have you used one?

I’m going to watch ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ tomorrow at The Marlowe Theatre, with my nan. I’m really looking forward to it, I adored the book and the film – I will be sure to take my tissues though! It is apparently a world premiere. Exciting!

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

  1. We’ve only taken Elsa swimming once but she wore an all-in-one suit and they are definitely worth getting. I would still probably put her in one now instead of a swimming costume.

  2. I like the idea of the BabyWarma, public pools can be quite chilly and I’d have got one when mine were babies if they’d be around I think.
    I’m very much looking forward to tonight’s season finale of The Walking Dead, I’m a massive fan!
    Have a great week x
