Bake Off, Autumn & Apple Crumble #LittleLoves

I’m back again to share another week of #LittleLoves with you. As I mentioned in my last little loves post I’m sharing fortnightly at the moment. This week has been such a good week, I’ve been very productive and got lots of things done. It’s also felt really Autumnal outside which makes me immensely happy.

I don’t exactly know why but I always feel better both mentally and physically this time of year. Long may it continue.


I was delighted when Jake brought home a book from school that I used to read to his older siblings. The book is called ‘The last noo-noo’ by Jill Murphy and it was my daughters favourite when she was a little girl. I phoned her to chat about it, it brought back lovely memories.


When The Great British Bake Off was on BBC one I only watched a couple of seasons. With Daisy showing an interest in baking and one of my favourite people in the world presenting (Noel Fielding) I decided to give it a go. I’ve been recording it each week so we can watch it together. I’m really loving this season, the showstopper  bakes have been amazing. We are rooting for either Steven and Flo to win the final.


I’ve mentioned before that I love listening to podcasts before I go to sleep. I’ve been listening to a podcast called Hashtag Authentic for a while and really enjoy it. An episode this week called ‘How To Stop Caring What Everyone Thinks’ had me nodding along in agreement. Podcast presenter Sara from the blog Me & Orla chatted to coach and mentor Sas Petherick. Sas explained that it’s okay to care what other people think, as humans we just want to belong and fit in. Her answers about when we should care about what others think is truly eye-opening.


In celebration of the weather turning Autumnal I made an apple crumble. There’s nothing better than comfort food this time of year. We all enjoyed a bowl full one rainy evening.


My cosy lounging around the house jumper is finally out of storage. I bought it a couple of year ago from Primark and it’s lasted really well. It’s super soft and so comfy, I’m happy it’s finally chilly enough to wear it again.

And Lastly…

On Saturday my eldest boy will venture into the wide world and start his adventure at university. I’m going to visit him on Sunday and I’m so excited. It makes me so proud that he’s going after his dreams, I can’t wait to see what the future holds for him. Of course I’m also going to worry about him irrationally too.

    Hope he settles in well at uni. Apple crumble is by far my favourite pudding EVER only with loads and loads of hot custard!

      Thanks lovely. I’m really enjoying GBBO this time, I do watch it a few days after everyone else though hence me not knowing who has already left x

    Aw man, I freaking love a crumble. Growing up I’don’t go blackberry picking with the family and mum would use the apples that fell off the neighbours tree on our side and make a yummy crumble.

    I love crumble! I’d have it all the time but my children hate it – what weirdos!!
    Bake Off is fab isn’t it? I think it’s going to take time for Noel and Sandi to gel as a presenting team, but I’m still enjoying it. xx
