#LittleLoves Spirits, Choirs and Eurovision

Well, here we are again - Friday already. How can that be?! Can't believe it's almost June and we're practically half way through the year. Time is just disappearing in a blur!

So here's some of this weeks Little Loves...


I actually updated my Kindle for the first time in ages this week and have been making some time to relax and read a book. I like to read for a bit before bedtime as it really helps me unwind.

I finished a book yesterday called Time to Say Goodbye by S.D Robertson. It was just an impulse buy on Amazon as it was 99p for a Kindle download but it was absolutely brilliant and I'm so glad I stumbled across it! It tells the story of Will, who has been recently killed in a tragic accident and his struggle to make contact with his 6 year old daughter from the afterlife. 

It was a really poignant read and made me cry in several places. I guess when you're a parent you just can't imagine ever having to leave your child and it really made me emotional! 


I love a bit of trashy easy to watch telly and last weekend I had a bit of a binge watch of America's Next Top Model. I hadn't realised the new series had started on Sky Living so I had 5 episodes to catch up with! I have no interest in the fashion industry but I've always loved watching ANTM - I think Tyra Banks is brilliant (if a bit bonkers) and I love seeing the makeover episodes where at least one contestant will freak out over their new haircut!!

Another show I have watched this week is Gareth's Invictus Choir. Really enjoyed seeing how Gareth Malone bought the choir together and his method of teaching. I have to say it made me blub a bit, I can't wait to see the next episode and find out how the choir got on singing at the Invictus Games.

I'm still plodding on with Slimming World and have been trying my best to cook healthy meals for the whole family. Last weekend I made some healthy pizzas using a wholemead bread mix from Asda. They turned out really well and I will definitely have them again, I really miss pizza so it's a great substitute! 


I treated myself to a few new tops last week as we were going away to Butlins and my wardrobe was lacking tops suitable for the warmer weather! I picked up this one from Yours Clothing and I love the elephant print. It's also nice and long too which is great, I hate tops that don't cover my stomach or bum! 

Sorry, not the best picture!


I keep hearing Disturbed's cover of The Sound of Silence on Radio 2 and I think it's brilliant, it gives me goosebumps!!! 

I've also been listening to the soundtrack of Les Miserables quite a bit...well maybe too much because Elliot keeps asking to hear One Day More again! He loves to sing along ;)


It's the Eurovision Song Contest final this coming weekend and I actually can't wait!! My sisters and I always go round to my parents house to watch it, we have a mini party and my sister Sarah always brings her notepad to mark all the entries! 

I don't mind the UK's entry, it's a bit Coldplay-esque and it's quite catchy. But come on, we don't have a hope in hell of winning!! I will definitely be voting for Ireland though, you might recognise the contestant...Nicky Byrne from Westlife. The song is quite catchy but we really want Ireland to win so we can get tickets for next years final! 

**Edited just to say that apparently Ireland haven't even made it to the final, doh!! 


  1. That pizza looks yummy! Have you tried the SW pizza you do on top of a chicken breast? That's nice - and very filling. x #littleloves

  2. What, there's a new series of Americas next top model?! I've got some catching up to do! I've been watching the Australian one, it's quite good! We normally have a Eurovision party at my parents too, but this time we had it at mine and my brother came over, it was well fun! Xx

  3. That pizza look yum! I need to find some alternative pizza recipes as I really miss it.
    Love that your little one likes One Day More. I think I need to introduce my girls to more musical soundtracks. xx
