#LittleLoves May 2019

I'm not even sure where May has gone but June is tomorrow which is my birthday month. This month though we've enjoyed bug hunting, flower spotting, trips to the park and a visit to the local children's centre, where Blake got to enjoy the sensory room. The weather has been all over the place recently with it raining one minute and the next the Sun has been shining.  It's been a hard month for me with feeling low and struggling with anxiety so it's made it really hard to want to do much. I promise my little loves next month will be much better.


9 books read this month. I've definitely found myself when feeling low opting to read. I feel like its an escape from reality for a brief while. 

Hinch yourself happy by Mrs Hinch 
The first book of the month because I've got into the I've been hinched bandwagon. Yep I now own more cleaning supplies than we probably need. This also includes random items such as tea towel clips.

The reason I jump by Naoki Higashida 
A memoir to help change our thoughts on the world around us. Naoki wrote the reason I jump at the age of 13 that takes you into the mind of a severely autistic boy. I found it to be an emotional insite into the world of autism.

Too Close to breathe by Oliva Kiernan 
A well written thriller by this debut author. Too Close to breathe features twists and turns throughout and is a must read if you love crime genre.

Don't turn around by Amanda Brooke

Now Megs ex is back and Jen's domestic abuse helpline has started getting frightening calls from a girl who knows things about Meg. Details only the dead girl would know or the guy who hurt her.

Now you see her by Heidi Perks

You wouldn't expect them to trust each other again however they need to as 2 weeks later they are being questioned separately by police. Someone is hiding the truth about what really happened to Alice.

The great alone by Kristen Hannah
Alaska 1974 a family crisis that is the ultimate test of survival. A wonderfully written book and I'm looking forward to reading more from her.

In the dark/ no way out  by Cara Hunter
I love Cara Hunters gripping thrillers with Di Adam Fawley.  In the dark and no way out are her 2nd and 3rd book in the crime series and I'm excited with her 4th book coming out just after Christmas.

A curse so dark and lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
A modern retelling of beauty and the beast featuring Prince Rhen who is cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year. He thought that it would be easy to get a girl to fall for him until he turned into a viscous beast. Harper with her father long gone, mother  dying and her brother constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy. Harper has learned to be tough enough to survive and when she tries to save a stranger on the street she is pulled into the magical world of Emberfall.  I loved this retelling and am excited to know a second book is being released in 2020.

I've watched 3 great series on Netflix this month. 

Featuring favourite Reene Zellweger.
In this neo-noir thriller, cash-strapped newlyweds accept a lucrative -- but morally questionable -- offer from a mysterious female benefactor.

The Society 

Busloads of Connecticut high school students head off for an extended camping trip, but a storm forces them to return home.Upon their return, the teens realize that all of the town's adults are gone in this modern take on "Lord of the Flies." Their newfound freedom is fun at first, but it quickly becomes dangerous. While they struggle to figure out what has happened to them and how to get the town back to normal, the teens must establish order and form alliances in order to survive.

Dead to me 

Jen's husband recently died in a hit-and-run, and the sardonic widow is determined to solve the crime. Optimistic free spirit Judy has recently suffered a tragic loss of her own. The ladies meet at a support group and, despite their polar-opposite personalities, become unlikely friends. As the women bond over bottles of wine and a shared affinity for "The Facts of Life," Judy tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it. The dark comedy -- which explores the weirdly funny sides of grief, loss and forgiveness -- features a cast that includes TV veterans Christina Applegate and Ed Asner.

I've mainly been listening to two albums this month.

Pink - Hurts to be human
I love Pink she is such a strong women and I'm loving her new album

Jade Bird 
I love her song motto so was excited to see she now has an album out so I've been  listening to her album a lot this month.

Nothing new

Plans for our garden now we just have to save up to get it done. We want to get artificial grass, a patio area and space to grow some fruit/veg. It's taken us time and going to the drawing board to plan a layout as our garden is small.

A lovely lady contacted me on Facebook as she wanted to make up and send Blake a personalised bag fob. We love it as not only is it personalised but Blake loves stars and on one side is autisim jigsaw print fabric.

I also can not mention this delicious shake I got from Sweetbox in Retford I fully recommend popping in I you are ever in the area as they sell so many other sweet treats too.
