Blogging, Virgins & Lullabies #LittleLoves

This week has been a bit tough. This nasty hacking cough is plaguing  us all at the moment, it’s been relentless. It’s meant that Daisy has only been in school one day this week, most kids would be quite happy with that but she loves school.

We have had lots of tears about missing her friends. I’m hoping she can go in for the last day before half term, fingers crossed for full nights sleep. Focusing on my little loves from the week really helps to keep me positive.


I go back and to as to whether I want to try to earn a living from blogging. I’m not sure if it’s become a saturated market but I do like making little improvements to my blog all the time.

A few weeks ago I won a book written by fellow bloggers Emma Bradley and Lynn James called ‘Blogging Your Way To Riches’. I’ve been dipping in and out this week as it’s such an easy read. I’m loving the practical advice, I just need to start implementing it now.


I’ve been struggling to find something to replace Gilmore Girls but I think I have managed it. I’ve started watching Jane The Virgin on Netflix and I love it. How it passed me by when it was on TV I don’t know. I love the story and the narrator makes me giggle. It’s such an easy watch and I don’t feel the need to binge watch it which is great.

I’ve also started watching Sneaky Pete on Amazon Prime which I’m really enjoying.


Despite all the coughing and requests for endless drinks and snacks some lovely things have been heard. Daisy and Jake have wanted lots of cuddles and mummy time. Daisy has been sleeping in bed with me and one night I heard her say through her poorly tears that she could only get back to sleep if I sung her a lullaby.

My 5 year old girl who insists she’s growing up and can do things herself needed to hear mummy’s voice to make her feel better. Sometimes children say things that you just want to remember forever.


I’m seriously wondering if I’m ever going to have anything worthwhile to put in this category. I think I might set myself a Pinterest challenge or something.


Apart from my pyjamas which I absolutely love wearing I’ve also been wearing some new make up. It might sound a little strange seeing as I’m poorly and have barely left the house. It’s way too easy to wallow in self pity and not make an effort when you are feeling unwell. Putting some make up on this week has not only made me look better it’s made me feel better too.

And lastly

I’ve had plenty of time to start planning my Spring cleaning this week. There’s something about the lighter days that makes me want to clean everything within an inch of it’s life. My house is always pretty tidy but dust is my enemy and it must be defeated !

    Love Jane the Virgin. Think there’s a new series out, or at least some new episodes I haven’t seen as it keeps popping up on my tv lately. Love how makeup always makes you feel that little bit better, certainly does the trick for me. Have a great weekend!

      I’m hoping the whole season is available I must check.

    Love a good spring clean. That book looks good, have added to my Amazon wishlist. Hope your little one feels better soon. Enjoy your week xx

      Thanks Stacie. A good clean always makes me feel better x

    I love your “throw kindness around like confetti” bag!

    I am looking forward to Spring Cleaning too – and having fresh Spring flowers in the house as often as we can.

    Have a great week lovely 🙂

      I think it’s meant to be a make up bag but I use it for my pens and it was a total bargain £1.29 !

    The sunlight is so much brighter and sadly makes the dust that much more visible as I too am having a cleaning frenzy.

    Great book. Oh yes I don’t want to finish Gilmore Girls just yet because I won’t have anything to replace it with. hahah I was waiting for Pretty Little Liars to start up again hopefully soon. Hurray for spring cleaning. I love it. A chance to clear out. Hope you had a good weekend and less coughs we all had it here too. #littleloves

      I tried Pretty Little Liars but couldn’t get in to the story I know lots of people love it though.

    I think everyone is turning their thoughts to Spring Cleaning, especially now the days are staying lighter for longer. I’m thinking about getting the hubby out to tackle the garden too. I hope you are all feeling better now x

    • February 21st 2017 / 7:56 PM

      Thanks Anne, the garden is next on my list. The kids have already been playing out in it this week so I’ve spotted things that need doing already x

    Sorry to hear you are all feeling unwell. I’m full of cold at the moment so I feel your pain! I got that blogging book for Christmas but I haven’t started reading it yet (it’s on the list!) #tuesdaytreasures

    • February 27th 2017 / 10:19 AM

      Hope you are feeling better Kiri, we are just about over it now.

    My other half bought me that book for Christmas and I haven’t started it yet…that will be my challenge for this week! We have also started watching Sneaky Pete…love it! #TuesdayTreasures

    • February 27th 2017 / 10:18 AM

      It’s an easy read Nicola, don’t think I will get rich but the tips are useful for improving the blog.

  9. February 21st 2017 / 10:42 PM

    I have started cleaning the house and sorting out the garden too. Spring is definitely on its way! #TuesdayTreasures

  10. February 22nd 2017 / 10:46 AM

    Sorry you’ve all been so poorly, this time of year is terrible for bugs and colds.
    We’ve just started Sneaky Pete too and really enjoying it so far x

    • February 27th 2017 / 10:16 AM

      Tell me about it ! I think we will go on holiday next February to avoid the germs.

  11. February 24th 2017 / 11:05 PM

    So sorry to hear you’ve all been poorly. Hope you’re all better soon. I’ve seen a few people talk about that blogging book – I think I should try it but I am with reading like you are with making things – I just never get around to it!

    • February 27th 2017 / 10:15 AM

      I’m the same with reading too Cal, I prefer books like this that you can just dip in and out of.

  12. February 26th 2017 / 6:02 PM

    Aw I hope Daisy is better and that cough is leaving your household. It’s been pretty horrid and not left us yet either! The book looks good I hope it’s been useful to you. I’ve decided to not make money from it, the blog, i need something reliable and a lot of work has just been for follow links which I don’t want a lot of on the blog but it’s all I get offered haha #tuesdaytreasures

    • February 27th 2017 / 10:12 AM

      Thanks Hannah, we are finally (fingers crossed) feeling better. I agree about it not being reliable I think to succeed I would need to put about 12 hours a day in, time I just don’t have. I’m more leaning to just keeping my blog as a hobby.

    Thanks Amy, it’s a lovely link to take part in.
