(early) Saturday snippets September 23rd 2017

{heading} for bed very soon, as Kentwell calls. Our last event of the tudor year, and it’s just me and Small attending. Which will be a little odd tbh, but also quite nice to spend a bit of time with just one child. We’ve four days, and have borrowed a caravan so at least I’m […]

Saturday snippets 9 September 2017

{Practising} habits. Water, exercise, creativity. If I manage to cement these in for another week I’ll add something else – maybe that I clear the kitchen before internet? (This might mean I mainly clear it before bed, but that works too.) {Reading} actually I’ve stalled. I’ve been reading Lynda LaPlante Good Friday (amazon affiliate link […]

Summer snippets part one

Yes, I know I said yesterday that I was going to review a book today, but I kind of haven’t quite finished it yet. Sorry. I’m not quite sure what I’ve done with today, but it’s gone out from under me. So instead, I thought I’d do you a bumper snippets edition to recap on […]

Saturday snippets 26 September 2015

{feeling} like it’s rather more than 2 steps back for every step forward at the moment. But I think a very large part of that is my own perception, and that’s something I need to work on.  {washing} all the things. And wishing there weren’t quite so many things. So much bedding, and Tudor kit, […]

Saturday snippets 1 August 2015

{walking} because I can’t run. The pain level in my back/ leg is manageable if I take painkillers regularly, but that leaves me without my exercise outlet. Fitbit tells me I walked for 82 minutes today though, and covered 4.7 miles, which seems an optimistic interpretation, but I’ll go with it. Got to help, right? […]

Saturday snippets 4 July 2015

{looking at} maps. Lots of maps. And starting a board on Pinterest. where I now have a business account, but as it won’t let me verify my website, I don’t think it makes a great deal of difference. Do let me know if you’ve any creative boards I can follow though 🙂 {sitting} in my […]

Saturday snippets 27 June 2015

{travelling} into London for a fab picture book session with Little Tiger books. We got to meet a variety of authors and illustrators, there were crafts and face painting for the children, and lots of interesting people to meet up with, including Anne-Marie from Child Led Chaos and her children. {feeling} inspired by the very […]

Saturday snippets 16 May 2015

{getting up} far far too early. Big had a cadet day which required her to be in the next town, after her paper round, for 8.15. Which was going to be tight. And so of course I woke up at 6, did that horrible flail oh no I’ve slept in, and then realised that actually […]

Saturday snippets 25 April 2015

{watching} Annie for family film night. It’s Smallest’s new favourite film – full review from her on Monday, along with the video from the wonderful workshop we attended. Evenings are Once upon a Time, we’re on Season 4 and starting to panic slightly about what we’re going to watch next. {reading} Lots of phonic readers, […]

Saturday snippets 4 April 2015

{watching} The Young and Prodigious TS Spivet on netflix. Gentle story of a young boy travelling to find himself (and incidentally his family). It entertained everyone but Tigerboy (Smallest insisted that she didn’t enjoy it, but she sat completely enraptured throughout, so I’m claiming a win). Watch out for an excellent and understated performance by […]
