May Little Loves





May has been a really good month for us filled with lots of fun. We've had lots of sunshine and we went to the May fair in our town which was busy but fun. Blake's loved picking daisys whenever we've been out especially on the way to and from pre-school. Stuart and I had an afternoon/evening out where my mum looked after Blake and stayed the night. 

Anyway onto my monthly little loves for May! 




Read

I'll still be doing a monthly what I've read post with more detail so I'll  be keeping what I've read brief in this post.

Read this if you want to be Instagram famous
A handy book when it comes to knowing more about Instagram and how to use your account to make the most of it.

The Muse By Jessie Burton
I read this one as part of the bloggers book nook book club where the theme for May was about historical fiction. This book was the only one in my TBR pile that I felt fit in with that theme.

The Breakdown by B.A.Paris
If you loved the fist book Behind closed doors you will love this one.

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult
Jodi is one of my favourite authors and I wish I had read this sooner. Definitely my favourite book I've read this month and I love how Jodi writes about such difficult topics.

Currently reading: 
The woman in cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
After being introduced to Ruth Ware by another blogger last month with the book in a dark, dark wood. I had to read more of her books so I purchased this one and another that I had found in a local charity shop. I'm hoping to finish this before the end of the month.





Watched

Santa Clarita Diet
I ended up binging through the 2 seasons quickly as I loved it so much. 

Love
A romantic comedy which features a rebellious Mickey and good-natured Gus navigate the thrills and agonies of modern relationships in this Netflix original. I'm currently getting through series 3.

Goodbye Christopher Robin
British biographical drama film about the lives of Winnie-the-Pooh creator A. A. Milne and his family, especially his son Christopher Robin. 

Early Man
An animated comedy about cave men. The DVD isn't released until Monday (28th May) however I got a copy before the release date to watch.

Tim Vine Sunset Milk Idiot
Stuart and I had a date for a meal out and then we headed to see Tim Vine at Milton Keynes theatre. It was a great show and we really enjoyed it.

Heard

 I've not actually listened to much music this month other than a friend playing Abba in the car when she's picked me up before going out. I've also not listened to any pod casts this needs to change in June.



Made
Re,Cycle, Me craft
We were sent this set and Blake and I had such fun making the above robot. 

Rainbow shortbread cookies
I actually never got around to taking a photo of how these turned out. They are from one of them mixes where we just had to add butter and then cook. 

Wore

I actually forgotten to take any photos for this section! We've mainly been living in summer clothes as the weather most of the time has been so nice. 

And lastly...

We are off to London tomorrow to take Blake to see In the night garden live for the 3rd year running. Blake's got more excited each year we have gone so I'm looking forward to seeing him so happy tomorrow. This time we are seeing the show at the showdome which will be near the 02.
