I’m a bit late to the #littleloves party this week. We’ll just blame the 6 year old who was taken down by scarlet fever towards the end of the week, poor little dude. Let’s just say it’s been a week of highs, like having my hair done and taking my mum for afternoon tea, and lows – being puked on in the middle of the night.
Without further tales of the woe is me variety, here’s what I’ve loved this week:
As soon as I saw Sunshine at the Comfort Food Cafe was up for review I had to read it. I LOVE this series. It’s quite literally like a warm hug in book form and you can’t help but smile as you read it. It’s the 4th (I think) in the Comfort Food Cafe series, a series of books I adore, focussing on a windswept cafe perched on a hill above the Cornish coast and the local villagers. Somehow, the cafe and its ballsy owner Cherie manages to change lives simply by being there for waifs and strays stumbling across the village before making it their home and of course, the locals too.
This book focuses on Willow, the cafe’s waitress, who lives with her mum Lynnie, who has dementia. Willow is run off her feet, coping with the ever-changing disease that has taken hold of her beloved mum, while trying to hold down a job. Then one day a stranger appears in town, changing Willow’s life forever. I’m already in love with this book and I haven’t even finished it yet.
I ‘made’ the decision to bin the brunette and go blonde again this week. I haven’t been ‘proper’ blonde for years but fancied a change so thought why not see if I could get a last minute appointment and surprise the Mr with a new look when he returned from his week working away. Needless to say I think it was a bit of a shock to find a blonde in our car when I picked him up from the station last night. If you fancy a peek at the ‘new me’ I’ve added it to my highlights on my insta stories.
One of my favourite tops from Sainsbury’s. I bought it hoping to fit into it a few months back and having lost almost 2 1/2 stone now it finally fits. I love the flowery embroidery. And it goes with these gorgeous tulips I treated myself to in Waitrose. Not that I’m coordinating my clothes to my tulips, but y’know it’s the little things…
I love this one from Eminem and Ed Sheeran too, which has also been gracing the radio waves every other song lately. These two together was always going to be magical.
As you can imagine we’re having a quiet one this weekend. Here’s hoping the little dude is back to full health soon and we can get out and about exploring again.
Have a great weekend whatever you’re up to.
