Ok, so I know I said last week that I was only going to do it every other week, but we’ve had a pretty good week this week so I have plenty to write about!
My parents came up on the weekend and it was lovely. The sun was shining, it was warm and we managed to go for a walk along the beach and a cup of coffee at our favourite harbour cafe, before having some chips on the promenade. Hopefully, they’ll be up again over the Easter holidays and we can show them some of our favourite places in the area to explore.
Onto this week’s Little Loves:
I have become addicted to Broadchurch, I know I’m months behind everyone else, but I rarely watch things on TV at the time they are shown – they always seem to clash with work or bedtime or something else. I tend to record things and then binge watch them (the entire 6 seasons of Game of Thrones in less than a month!). I was mooching about on the box sets on Sky the other day and I came across Broadchurch so downloaded it – definitely not one to start watching at 10pm on a Sunday night – I wanted to watch one after another! I’m a couple of episodes into series 2 now, and I *think* I have an idea of what might happen.
I’ve been reading Game of Thrones, mostly on the beach! It’s quite a heavy going book, like the TV series, but I’m really enjoying it. I quite like that it is taking me longer as well – I’m sick of getting through books really quickly.
Lots and lots of sandcastles. We’ve been going down to the beach in the afternoons whilst Harrison is at school for a little play on the beach. I take a flask of coffee with me and my book, and Ben and Alex take their buckets and spades. We spent a very happy couple of hours on Monday just playing and building sandcastles. Turns out that the toddler is the best builder of the three of us!
I’m sure I mention Ed Sheeran in pretty much every Little Loves, but I absolutely adore him, even more so after watching Comic Relief. At the moment, I love Galway Girl – I think it might be my favourite Ed song yet!
Last week I told you that I had bought some new Skechers. I’ve finally wore them out and about, and I wish I had bought some years ago! They’re not the prettiest of shoes, admittedly, but my god, they are comfy. They did rub my foot a little the first time I wore them, hence the plaster, but that always happens to me with new shoes. These are Go Walk ones or something, and it’s like walking on clouds. They’re perfect for slipping on to do the school run or to pop down to the beach.
Yay for light nights!! As much as I love the beauty of winter, I was starting to feel a bit suffocated by the dark nights. It hasn’t affected the kids sleep patterns too much – they’re all pretty good sleepers anyway – and it means we can go back out after tea for a walk. Graham loves it as well, because in the winter he wasn’t seeing any daylight whatsoever when he worked days. Now he gets a little glimpse of natural light, even if it just for a few minutes after work!
