Bethanyhem, watercolours and Grey’s anatomy #littleloves 

This week seems to have passed in a blur. The nights have been long and consequently I’ve been lacking motivation in the day. Some days have been busy too with swimming lessons for both girls and I did a peadiatric first aid course. Anyway here are this week’s little loves.


I started subscribing to The simple things magazine a few months back. I’ve been reading the latest edition this week. I love the cover this month. So autumnal.


We started watching Independence day resurgence on Tuesday night. I only got 30 minutes in before falling asleep! I gave up and went to bed only for the tiny one to wake up. it’s not like her to wake an hour after going to bed. Unfortunately that was the start of a bad night (5 wake ups).

I also discovered that the new series of Grey’s anatomy had started so I caught up on the first 2 episodes this week. Although I miss a lot of the original cast, I still enjoyed them.


My daughter singing about Bethanyhem! They have started practice for the preschool nativity. I guess it’s no surprise she has changed Bethlehem to Bethanyhem as her best friend is Bethany.

We went to our local forest school on Saturday. It rained all morning but thankfully it was dry for our afternoon visit but waterproof coats and wellies were still essential. I shared more details about our trip here.


I did some painting with my eldest last Friday. I found this leaf printable and decided we’d use watercolour paints. I also decided to join in myself! I’ve not really made much else this week although I have quite a list of things I want to make the girls for Christmas. fingers crossed I find the time and energy.

And lastly …..

I can’t believe how close December is getting. I really need to get organised with our advent calendar and activities. I think we have bought all the kids presents which is something at least.little-loves-badge

    Bethanyhem! Love it!
    I’ve just caught up on Greys too, I had no idea it was back on. I was going to stop watching it after what happened to McDreamy but of course it’s pulled me back in!
    Have a lovely weekend xx

    I love your painting, I’m awful for getting out the paints with O and he loves it when I do. I really should make more of an effort. Hope you’re all well. xx

    I really want to go to a forest school with Parker, I think he’d love it! I’m hoping to do some Christmas card making with Parker this weekend. I don’t do enough of it. Enjoy your weekend xx

    Ah how cute singing Bethanyhem, I love the little things they come out with. December just creeps up on you every year. I have got the advent calendars but come the 1st I will probably forget where I put them x
