I’m a little late to the party with my #littleloves today. A certain 5 year old woke this morning with a terrible sore throat and a temperature and was absolutely gutted to have to miss school. There may have even been tears. Fridays are his favourite apparently. Although I think that has more to do with ‘lego university’ than the fish and chips for school dinners. In typical style, he put on a brave face. It was only when we arrived at the doctor’s surgery this afternoon he let on just how terrible he was feeling, even falling asleep on me in the chemist while we waited for his antibiotics. Before falling asleep once again on the sofa as soon as we got home. Needless to say, any plans for the weekend have been shelved while he rests up to get rid of yet another nasty bought of tonsillitis.
That aside, it’s been another great week. My other little niece turned 8 this week, so we celebrated after school with a party and of course lots of cake. The little dude is in his element surrounded by his cousins and loves nothing more than a party. The teen has been out with her new friends and has finished for half term already, so she’s happy.
Anyway, onto my #littleloves for the week:
I’ve also caught up on Liar which I pretty much watched through my fingers while screaming at the tv. And I’m up to date on series 3 of Outlander and completely in love with Jamie all over again.
I made a seriously good spiced lamb hotpot from my new recipe book Feasts by Sabrina Ghayour. I did take a snap, but it really didn’t do it justice. It was so good, even the fussy 5 year old asked for seconds. It certainly made a delicious change from my usual repertoire and is a recipe we’ll definitely be making again.
More comfy boots and jumpers, so nothing to see here. Although I did hear we were in for a ‘heatwave’ this weekend. Needless to say after freezing half to death after moving here from the Med in July, I’ll be thrilled if the temperatures do infact creep past 20 degrees.
Anyone else have a small excitable child going crazy over Christmas already? I’m not sure if I can cope with another 2 and a bit months of ‘can I have this’ and ‘mummy we need to add this to my Christmas list’!
As you can see by the pic at the top of this post, we went on another hunt for dinosaurs at the weekend! We enjoyed a lovely meal with the in-laws, before wandering to their local museum. We’d been meaning to take the dino crazy dude to this particular museum for a while, as we knew it had a small dinosaur exhibit. And he certainly wasn’t disappointed. We had a lovely afternoon. I may have even geeked out a bit over a chair Henry VIII once sat on – yes I know, I have issues!
Have a great weekend whatever you get up to!
