This week has been insanely busy. I’ve got heaps of translation and copywriting work going on on top of all my other work commitments. And that means I’m a day late with this week’s Little Loves. I wanted to make sure I get it up, though, instead of just dropping the post altogether – something I would have probably done last year. I have made the resolution of sharing more about myself on the blog this year. So I am committed to writing a Little Loves post every single week.
Despite working until 10 PM most nights, I’ve managed to go through one book this week. I’ve made a conscious effort to read a bit before bedtime every night to get some me-time and this week, I read ‘Undeniable Attraction’ by JB Heller. I think it was one of those 99p buys on Amazon a while ago. Nothing special and what I’d class as an alright-read.
Call me sad, but the German series of the ‘I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here’ started last night and I know I’ll be all over it. They’ve compiled a nice little bunch of z-listers and I can’t wait for the first big argument. In fact, I predict it for tonight. Other than that, we’ve been keeping up with the biathlon World Cup – something we watch religiously. If you don’t know what biathlon is, it’s a mix of cross-country skiing and shooting. Really fun and something I’d love to try it myself some time.
I don’t know what it was but something this week reminded me of a singer that I really liked when I was 14. I searched for her music over on Spotify but there were just dodgy karaoke versions of her songs on there. In the end, I remembered that I still had her album (it was probably her only one) and it’s been running all week. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of her but she’s called Princessa, if you want to check her out. I’ll embed a video to one of her songs from back then. It’s cheesy pop music, she’s got the strongest accent ever (something I never noticed back then), but it took me back to being 14 and buying the album with my grandad who died a couple days before I found out I was pregnant with Amy.
If you’ve watched my ‘What I got for Christmas‘ video, you will know that I’m the proud owner of a new donut tray and recipe book. At the weekend, I’ve baked my very first batch and it was a bit of a flop. Basically, because I had forgotten the baking powder. I tried again, though, and these little beauties came out the oven – yum!
Nothing even remotely fashionable but comfy and warm. I’m definitely one of those work from home mums who change into tracksuit bottoms and a cosy sweater right after coming home from the school run. I wear Yeti-like slippers and change again once I pick Amy up from kindergarten. Unfortunately or lucky for you, I don’t tend to take pics of myself when I look like a sloth, so here’s one of Amy instead. She’s been loving the snow and I think she looks adorable in her pink skiing jacket.
I’ve been dreaming of holidays all week long. Actually, I do that most weeks but writing about backpacks and suitcases for a copywriting job really gave me the worst case of wanderlust. I can’t wait for my trip to Iceland in March and all the adventures we’ve planned for 2017.
