#LittleLoves April 2019

Another month has gone by and it's been another good one. We've had a few days out with my favourite being a trip to Retford.  We ended up finding an amazing park which we will definitely visiting again, especially for picnics in the summer. We've also headed back over to Buckinghamshire/Bedfordshire way to see family for Easter. Blake was loving the sunshine, Easter egg hunts and a trip to the farm so it's been rather busy.

Anyway here are my littleloves for April:


I've definitely not read as many books this month as I did in March and am currently still in the middle of my current read. I've even had a read this month where I read one chapter and gave up as it was confusing me, which I've left out since this is a favourites post.

Quiet by Fearne Cotton
Having read her two other books Happy and Calm I knew the kind of thing to expect from Fearne and I wasn't disappointed. Quiet is all about that negative inner chat we all have and how to quieten it down. Packed with interviews, tips, activities you can do and more it's a great overall read.

The Forgetting time by Sharon Guskin
A bit of a slow starter this one. It explores the idea of reincarnation with a little boy called Noah who's mum is struggling with his behaviour difficulties and his insistence that he wants to go home even though he is home. It's a thought-provoking fictional read that got me thinking about what I'd do if I was ever in the same position as Noah's mum. 

Let me lie by Clare Mackintosh 
Having read a few of clare's other books I've had this on my tbr list since it was released, however I've only recently got a copy.  As with her other books Let me lie was a brilliant thriller with twists and turns throughout which I love.

Currently reading: 
Autism, how to raise a happy autistic child by Jessie Hewitson 
With Blake having recently been diagnosed I thought this looked like a very interesting and informative read. I'm correct its filled with advice and the authors experience of having an autistic child. 


It's mainly been catching up with new season realeses of some of my favourites

Santa Clarita Diet Season 3
The OA Season 2
Riverdale Season 3
Shadow hunters season  4

I've also now got into the whole Mrs Hinch cleaning and been watching her instagram stories along with other home/cleaning accounts.

Like quite a lot of parents we were waiting to find out on the 16th if Blake had got into our first choice school for him. We are very happy to hear that he has! The school is about a 5 minute walk from our house which is very handy and we were very impressed with the school when we visited. 

Nothing new here 

Blake had a cold as was feeling rather sorry for himself so one morning we made these paper plate baby sharks. I got the idea after seeing it on one of the Facebook pages I follow.

We also had a go at making a felt Easter card which I picked up from The Works.  You get lots of felt shapes which stick on the card to make your design.  I found threading the ribbon through the felt card a bit tricky though. 

I had to share this lovely photo of Blake feeding the goats at the Green Dragon Eco Farm. He's really loving animals and was excited and giggling.
