LITTLE LOVES 2021 | MAY EDITION

May 27, 2021

Hello and welcome back to a new little loves round-up!

I think I started last months Little Loves off with a WOW, how can we already be mid way through the year! We are heading into our sixth month of the year and I can’t quite believe it. With what’s happened so far it’s surprising how quickly 2021 is passing us by. 

May was a month where we started to relax a little. We saw family, which was lovely and we stared to plan days out for half term. We decided this half term we would get out and enjoy ourselves because I think we all need it. My holiday starts at 5:30pm today and I cannot wait to log off and have some quality family time. 

Without too much waffling here’s my Little Loves for May. 

Read

I’ve really struggled this month to pick anything up. I have so many books on my list to read, I just have no desire to read. I think I need to start with something really easy and light. 

Watched

I finally finished all seasons of How to Get Away with Murder and I really enjoyed it. The last episode had me crying into a pillow, I think it’s because it was the last one and it felt like a goodbye. I’m so glad I went back to it and finished it off. Here’s a round up of some pretty good TV I’ve watched this month. 

Motherland (BBC) – this had me laughing out loud. Third series in and it’s still as good as the first. It’s currently being streamed in BBC but I think the first two series are on Netflix. Highly recommend, think I watched all 6 episodes in one evening. 

Lego Masters (E4) – this is such a fun programme, it’s a competition and you have to build mammoth builds out of Lego. Henry is really enjoying it and it’s nice to watch as a family. 

The Pact (BBC) – This was a really good thriller. Based in Ireland, a group of friends get the Mayo to a spot of bother. There was a big twist that I did manage to work out just before it was exposed. If you like a thriller I’d recommend this. 

Hospital (BBC) – Based around the Covid-19 pandemic this is a docu-series inside a NHS hospital. You kind of know what the NHS have been dealt with but this is an eye opener. I watched episode three this week and it should of come with a warning. It was heartbreaking to watch. 

Wore

The weather has been shocking this month. What a mixture! It’s been mainly rain which just so happens to appear bang in school drop off and school pick up! I am still in my winter coat which sounds ridiculous for this time of year. Good news the weather is getting brighter, just on time for half term!! 

Made 

I am still ploughing through my blanket, added another two colours. I’ve not picked it up in about a week, but we have a long car journey next week so may be able to get some done then. It’s looking really good and it’s a sense of achievement that I made it. I did make a tea cosy this month though. I have been enjoying loose tea. Had to style the tea pot!

Last weekend I made a banoffe pie for dessert. Has to be my all time favourite dessert ever. Always tastes better the day after as well. No photos because it didn’t stay around long enough! 

Henry and I have been making an effort to get out early before school and walking the dog. Its nice to spend some time with him and we meet a friend so Fleur also has someone to play with! 

Lastly

May saw me finally get my first dose of the vaccine and I felt all kind of feelings. Everyone involved has worked (and still are) so hard getting the vaccine rolled out. I had the Pfizer and had no symptoms after. Sore arm but nothing to shout about. I was told the second dose comes with some nasty effects so hopefully I manage to pass those as well. Have you had yours?

    Well done on getting your first vaccine, we also had ours (I should add this to my blog!). I too have had the Pfizer and I didn’t have any side effects, here’s hoping the second jab is as easy!
