Sunsets, Tuscany & Jumpsuits… ǀ Little Loves

Jess McGlynnJune 2, 2017

Happy Friday everyone!  We are enjoying the first week of our half term break and although the weather has been a little hit and miss, not having to get up and out to school has been a welcome break.  Best of all, we still have one more week to go!

As always, I am joining in with Morgana’s Little Loves this week so here are mine:-


I have been reading two books this week; Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier.  I got a whole load of new books for my birthday which was amazing and I had a bit of a debate over whether to abandon my current TBR and pick up a new book or stick with it.  In the end I decided that I’ve wanted to read Cold Mountain for the longest time so I’d stay with my original plan.  CM is beautifully written with a very poetic and lyrical flow that I just fell right into.  I would highly recommend it and I’m intrigued to watch the movie now.


Despite living by the coast for the last 3 and a half years, we’ve never actually stayed out on the beach until sunset but last Friday we met up with some friends, grabbed some chippy chips and settled ourselves in.  It was absolutely stunning, helped of course by the gorgeous weather and I’m really glad we watched the sun set.


This is tentative at best but we made some progress with a possible house.  I don’t want to say too much at this point as a lot is still up in the air but we might actually have somewhere to live by the end of July.  Thank goodness.


That jumpsuit.  We went into Liverpool last night to celebrate my sister-in-law’s 21st birthday and it was the perfect excuse to finally wear it.  I didn’t manage to get a full shot (there was a lovely mixer of champagne and sangria flowing…) but you hopefully get the idea.


We went a little old school this week and have been enjoying some ‘classic’ tunes.  This includes such diamonds as Ridin’ Solo by Jason Derulo and Umbrella by Rihanna.  It actually boggles my mind that so many of the songs I remember so well are 10 years old or more.  Where did the time go?!

And Lastly…

This time next week I will hopefully be bringing you my Little Loves post from Tuscany.  Please keep your fingers crossed for beautiful sunshine and lots of opportunities to relax!  This is our first break away without the kids and we are going to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.  Hopefully everything will go smoothly for us.
