Big Brother, Oasis and Shiny Brogues #LittleLoves

So Week 3 of 2018 and I’m struggling with tiredness. I need to get to bed much earlier but even when I do I end up catching up with work or reading and then it’s always after midnight when I’m going to sleep! My alarm is set for 6.30am, giving me 6 hours if I’m lucky. Not enough sleep for me. I have snoozed for England this week! Today I pressed that snooze button for almost an hour, causing us all to rush around like crazy dudes trying to get ready and out of the house! My children are still asleep too by the way (lazy little so and so’s!) so I have to wake them and I hate doing that.

Anyway, hope you’ve all had a good week. Here is my list of Little Loves…..

Read

The forgetting time book books

I’ve started a new book…. The Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin. I’m only a couple of chapters in but I’m already intrigued. It’s about a little boy who seems to remember his past life. It’s got some great reviews so hoping it will be a good one!

Watched

big brother tv show

It has to be Big Brother! I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and I wouldn’t watch the Summer one with members of the public because it’s all got a bit silly now with most of them chasing fame! It’s also on for far too long… too much of a commitment to keep up, but I did use the love it in the early years when it was very much an experiment on human behaviour! The celebrity one is different as it’s only on for a few weeks and I can’t help but to be intrigued…. to discover the sides of the celebrities as we’ve never seen them before. Even the Z Listers, which most of them are, quite often turn out to be TV gold! Yes it’s all been done before but every housemate is different and it’s the element of surprise and unpredictability that fascinates me!

It’s been much better this year… a lot more civilised. The Year of the Woman has given us more intellectual conversations and has generally been more respectful. I pretty much like everyone in there, if there was any time I’d like to be in the Big Brother house it would be now, with those people! They all seem to be getting along reasonably well which is unusual. But of course, there’s still time for it all to unravel ;)

Can’t go without mentioning The Greatest Showman! Went to see it last weekend with my eldest two kids and OMG I loved it so much! Much better than I imagined. I’m a massive musical fan so it had to go a long way to impress me but it certainly did! And Hugh Jackman….. I love him!

Heard

I’ve been listening to Oasis again the past few weeks. I was a big fan back in the day and after watching that documentary that was on over Christmas… Supersonic… if you watched it, wasn’t it brilliant? Such an intimate look at the very start of their journey and a wonderful insight to the bands’ real personalities…. a real eye opener! The programme just made me want to listen to their albums again. I was there at Knebworth that Summer of 1996, a moment in Britpop history! Did you know that more than 2 and a half million people applied for tickets for the 2 Knebworth shows? Apparently they could’ve sold out at least 18 Knebworth shows instead of 2! Crazy! I feel very lucky to have been part of it… was one of the best days ever!

The sun was setting in the sky on this perfect, warm summer’s evening as they played my favourite song….

Wore

I’ve been wearing my Hotter shoes this week. I’ve had them over a year but the first time I wore them they gave me terrible blisters! I’d gone into London and my heels bled…. I was at an event in a hotel and they had to get me medical help! Hehe….. That’ll teach me to wear new shoes with bare feet! Understandably, it put me off wearing them, even though I did the old holding them over the steam of a boiling kettle to soften up the heels… I’ve still been scared of them! Well no more. Because I do actually love them….. Nice aren’t they? I’m liking them with black tights and a skirt and so far… no blisters!

Made

I’m trying to make sure my twins are doing a bit more work at home. It’s not always easy as they just want to chill when they get home from school but I promised myself I would encourage them to read and do some fun maths. They still need to get their heads round the basics with maths and do struggle somewhat. We are back doing the Smartick Maths programme which I was lucky enough to review last year. They enjoyed it then and I felt as though they came on in leaps and bounds whilst on it so I’m super pleased to be using it again!

And Lastly

I had a lovely night out with a friend on Thursday as we headed to the theatre to see La Soiree! I will talk more about it next week and I’ll be writing up a review in the next day or two but WOW! It was the most bizarre show I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen loads! It was absolutely freezing on Thursday though and getting myself out on the train into London on a school night was a bit of a struggle, but so glad we went! We had a brilliant time! Made a mental note to do it more often!

Have a good week everyone…. looks like it’s going to be a cold one!

  1. Can’t believe those shoes gave you a hard time because they look gorgeous! Goog luck catching on sleep. I don’t know if it’s the weather or the time of the year but I can’t seem to have enough energy to get up in the mornings even after 7 hours of sleep! Have a fantastic week xx

  2. Oh I love those shoes, I have so many pair son Hotter shoes I just love them. I need to make the effort to get out with friends more sound like you had a great night. Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend x
