Reading Lately – October 2018

October has been a fantastic month for me on the reading front. The combination of school holidays and long evenings spent in the campervan during our half term road trip meant I was literally ploughing through the books. People keep asking me how I manage to read so much but in honesty months like these…

Birthday Celebrations, Mother’s Day, La La Land and Too Many Writing Projects #LittleLoves

It’s been a busy week here in the wellies household, and the last seven days have seen my eldest son’s birthday, postponed World Book Day celebrations, two parties and of course Mother’s Day. Add to the mix my writer’s group, the kids’ after school activities and the 101 other things all Mamas are familiar with and it’s fair…

Welcome to another week of little loves and wellies! It’s been another lovely week here – despite my moans about all of us getting back into the old routines of school and work 😉 I may have spent a lot of the last week preparing invoices and paying tax bills, but that didn’t stop me enjoying another meeting of…

The Muse, Stranger Things and Winter Warmers #LittleLoves

It’s been a slightly healthier week in the Wellies household this week and I’m just glad I don’t have to put ‘sick days’ in another title for this post. We’re all back to school, work and the normal Monday to Friday – but after a week of dodging hailstones on dog walks I could do…

The Hidden Life of Trees, More Sick Days and Goodbye to Mad Men #LittleLoves

How can it be that it’s Tuesday again already? The last week has passed in a fog of sick bugs and days off school. My eldest caught my youngest’s vomiting bug and then they kindly shared it with your’s truly. On the positive side, they were able to make their own breakfast and tidy up…

Reading, Watching, Listening to Lately – June 2017

We’re inching ever closer to the school holidays here in the north of Scotland, and I for one can’t wait for the possibility of a few extra minutes with a cup of tea and a book each morning before we think about getting ready for the day. Despite the rushed mornings June hasn’t been a…

Reading, Watching, Listening to Lately – April 2017

The school Easter holidays and 10 days spent adventuring around Scotland in our campervan in April meant that I didn’t do as much reading, watching and listening as I planned to this month, but quality over quantity and all that, and my little eyes and ears did enjoy pretty much everything they were exposed to. Except…

Reading, Watching, Listening to Lately – March 2017

I can’t believe we’re into April already, that longer Spring evenings are finally here, and the school Easter holidays are just around the corner – yay! Despite the move towards British summertime, and spending more time in the evenings outdoors, March was still a good month for me on the reading, watching and listening front,…
