While I’m not really blogging as much right now, I can’t not join in with the #littleloves linky hosted over at But Why Mummy Why. Well, when Friday doesn’t sneak up on me like it has been doing recently! So what’s been happening?

Read

I am just starting to find time to read again, you know, what with the holidays being over *rolls eyes at herself*. Yes, I know I should have had my feet up reading, but it doesn’t happen like that really over Christmas does it? Too many toys to build! Anyway. I’ve just downloaded the one Jonathan Harvey book I’ve not read and I might only be a few pages in, but already loving it. I’ll let you know how I get on.

Wore

Back to school means one thing, the school run. I quite like it really, fresh air, say hi to a few people, the pleasure of leaving the kids at school, and the joy of seeing their faces when I pick them up. But it’s cold right now. Very cold. So I’m wearing my big coat. A LOT.

Heard

We’ve been driving about a bit, and as we’ve had quite a few arguments about songs currently on our car playlist, we settled on the Audiobook and the boys are loving these Famous Five short stories. They’re great. Plus, I sometimes listen to them if I can’t sleep! You can download them from iTunes!

Made

CURRY! 

We’ve been a bit sick of roasts recently, so for our final family dinner before back to school the boys randomly requested meat and rice. Not one to disappoint, especially as I really fancied a curry, I made an amazing chicken and sweet potato korma. I wasn’t sure how it would go down, especially as I packed it with spinach, but it went surprisingly well. Well, especially as Larry didn’t know that I was sneaking spinach onto his fork under the sweet potato when he wasn’t looking.

and lastly..

There’s a lot to be said for normality. Whilst I’ve absolutely loved the time off, I’m pleased to have a bit of order back in my life. Contracted hours need to be met, and whilst I loved having little people coming to offer me chocolates. Plus, it means I can have a cup of tea in peace too.

    Your korma looks delicious, I’m a huge fan of sweet potato and spinach, the kids not so much though.
    I always get final say of what we listen to in the car (radio 2) but short stories sound good for a change. #littleloves

      I used to think I would always win the radio battle, but somewhere along the line I found it safer to just give in. I’m not proud of myself I miss Radio 2 (and 4!)

    I LOVE your new blog layout Aimee! It reminds me of Grange Hill (in a really good, nostalgic way!) We have all been enjoying a more normal routine this week too. I love the lazy mornings of the holidays, but you can’t beat a bit of ordered timekeeping, can you? 🙂 Have a great weekend! Xx

    I love the idea of story books but I haven’t as yet bought any. I may invest in some for the kids to put on their hudls for car journeys, especially my daughter as she gets travel sick a lot!
