A fresh start, business besties & a whole lot of coffee #littleloves

Easter has been and gone again and it feels like spring might just be making a real appearance. None of that ‘pretend spring but then it’s snowing again’ malarkey. I can just feel it in my bones (you just watch it snow again now I’ve said that…) spring has sprung.

For those of you who read my blog, you’ll know that I’ve been struggling with my health recently and so I thought it was time to ease back a bit, take stock and live in the moment a bit more.

There has been a lot of disruption to our usual routines what with me being home from the office right now, a difficult wait for medical treatment, Sophie starting nursery and it being the school holidays and I’m finding that as part of my condition, a big change in routine can be difficult for me to navigate.

Hopefully, with the back to school routine starting again next week – we can start to claim back some sense of normality.

I’m joining in with the #LittleLoves linky this week over on Morgana’s blog – Coffee Work Sleep Repeat. If you haven’t read Morgana’s blog then head over there and indulge. You’ll love it.


This week I am reading The Places In Between, an international bestseller written by the acclaimed travel writer, Rory Stewart.┬áThis is the true story of Rory’s six-thousand-mile walk from Turkey to Bangladesh, focusing on his account of crossing Afghanistan on foot shortly after the US invasion in 2002.

It’s stunningly crafted and totally un-putdownable. I adore travel writing – it’s the ultimate escapism.


The Crown on Netflix.

I love it. Not quite as much as I love ITV’s Victoria (there’s no Albert after all) but I still think it’s pretty good. And yes, I know it’s been out for ages but I pretty much never watch TV these days so I’m just catching up with what you all watched two years ago.

Listened to

The Huddle podcast by Ceri Gillett and Aby Moore – Small talk for big business. I love this podcast – it’s so warm and friendly and makes me feel as though I’ve sat down for a chat with some friends. More than that though, it’s packed full of sensible, relatable business advice both in a practical sense and in a more holistic sense.


A whole lotta coffee / tea and not a lot else! We’ve all been full of germs this week so there’s been an unhealthy relationship with our Indian takeaway and the local garage. Normal service to resume next week I hope!


Well, I have worn my gym clothes and pyjama’s for the most part so can we talk about how cute Sophie has been this week instead?

My number one favourite thing in her wardrobe right now has to be this blue pinafore dress and Breton striped tee from F&F Tesco.

and lastly…

my favourite quote from the week –

“difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations”

Have a beautiful weekend you beautiful people

    What a cute post.

    I completely understand about finding all the big changes hard to navigate. Having the routine of school runs back in place has helped me focus so much. Like yourself I haven’t really watched anything upto date and when I start to watch a series people are already ‘over it’ lol. Sophie looks adorable in her little breton top and dress. Look forward to another post soon.
