Little Loves - What a busy week!



I wasn't going to do a 'little loves' post today. It's been a hectic week and I haven't had time to stop and think, never mind get a blog post up and I'll be honest and say I feel a bit out of the loop and a bit de-motivated with blogging and my 'blogging stats' right now. Howeverr Archer seems to be having a mammoth nap and catching up with my current favourite linky/pretending the tip in my house doesn't exist seems a much better option than actually tidying it so here I am!


The post that sticks in my mind from this week is this lovely announcement from Emily who blogs over at Emily and Indiana about baby number 3. Pregnancy announcements make me so happy and this one made me smile from ear to ear. If anyone was made to be a three children family it's these guys!

I'm still fully in to 'Love Island' this year...no shame! It's coming to an end soon and I have to say I will miss all the dramatics. My brother has also recently lent me and James 'Wentworth' and 'WestWorld' to watch which he recommends. Anyone seen them?


I took Lily to a meet and greet picnic at the primary school she will be starting in September a few days ago. It was lovely and we got to meet her new teacher and her new classmates. We heard all about the things they get up to in reception and what the structure of 'big' school will be like, and how it differs from nursery. I'm very excited for Lil but also extremely emotional! 

                                                                          


Just this morning I made the decision to take the kids on an early morning walk. (7am kind of early!) They both woke up waay before they should have and both seemed pretty restless so I thought a short walk might help. I actually really enjoyed it as being so early meant there was pretty much no-one around besides some early morning dog walkers. There's such a peaceful sort of still-ness to the park when it's that empty and I adore it. We'll definitely be doing more early morning walks from now on. 

The first photograph here makes me laugh because if Archer was going to be a dog he would totally be this one. They have the exact same colouring!



The kids have been wearing their matchy matchy cactus outfits from Another Fox a lot recently. I adore them!

Like I said it's been an extremely busy week this week and we're ending our week by travelling to Manchester on Sunday to spend some time with family. I love having lots and lots of plans but I'm also hoping next week will be at least a little bit more relaxed!

  7. The meet and greet picnic sounds like a lovely way to introduce the children and the school for a year - I love that! Getting out & about at a time of day you wouldn't usually is lovely every now and again. Beautiful pictures shared.

    1. It was, a really nice and not too formal way of Lily getting to meet her new teacher and classmates! x

  9. I'd say that 7am definitely counts as an early morning walk! Loving their outfits, that cactus dress is fab.
    Oh I remember that summer before big school so well with both my girls. Time really does fly! xx
