With being so busy, I haven't had chance to pick up a book lately. However, I've had a few sneaky peeks at blogs on my lunch and managed to pick up my kindle when I've got in bed for a bit. These are the blogs I've been reading this week:
Life As A Widower - This is a blog written by Ben who was widowed in 2012. Ben writes about his life with his son so touchingly and poignantly. I had drafted a post the other week about how crap things were at the minute and after reading his blog, I deleted it. I realised that, through all the shit we have going on, I need to be thankful and grateful for what I have.
School Gate Style - I love Avril's blog! She always knows how to put an outfit together and she always looks stylish. I am currently coveting her boyfriend jeans which she managed to pick up for £7!
The Adventures of a Potty Mouthed Mummy - She wrote a very honest post about Brit Mums, that, if I had gone, I would have probably felt too. I'm just not sure things like that are for me now. I used to really want to go but after seeing the instagram pictures and the blog posts that came from Brit Mums, I'm just not sure I am that sort of blogger.
Of course, the World Cup! I've really enjoyed it actually and got into it this year. So has Charlie, judging by this picture! However, it's costing us a fortune, as hubby insists we have to have a 'beer' if we are watching the football and it's a bit annoying that the matches don't start until 9pm!
I keep hearing Radio One play this and it's grown on me.
The Vamps, Somebody To You
Rixton, Me and My Broken Heart
Ed Sheeran, Sing
Still having a Summer work wardrobe debacle. As I said, I ordered a load of things and in the end I kept one item - a black maxi jersey skirt. Boring, I know. But it has actually served me well for work. This is the link to the skirt as I can't get a large enough picture to put here.
I also ordered this dress from Joe Browns and I love it. It's not all that flattering, but I like the fit and I like it can be worn over leggings or it's long enough to go bare legged.
I've also gone and ordered a few pairs of boyfriend jeans as I seem to be obsessed with them - I'll let you see them when they arrive!
I made paella - I am obsessed with this too. I just love it soo much. It's addictive! I blogged the recipe here, but stupidly forgot the pictures, so here are some in the preparation stage.
And lastly, one more week to go!! I cannot wait for the Summer holidays. I really need a rest and the house also needs seeing to, things like cleaning windows etc often get neglected when it's busy at work. I am also looking forward to taking Charlie on his first proper holiday! We're only off to Hoseasons, see here, but it will be great fun. I also can't wait just to spend some time with hubby and Charlie. I miss my boy terribly when I am at work and 6 whole weeks will be just fab! And I had to share this photo:
