I'm currently reading 'Half a King' by Joe Abercrombie on my Kindle. It's taking me a while - not because it isn't good, I'm really enjoying it. but because I just don't get the time to read like I used to.
I've also read, re-read and re-read one of Lily's new books, 'Peter Rabbit: Pumpkin Party'. Lily chose this book herself at the bookshop when we were spending birthday money and vouchers and we have read it a couple of times a day since!
Matt and I were introduced to Once Upon a Time by some good friends and I went through the first four seasons in about two weeks (thanks Netflix + breastfeeding baby). I'm hooked and am so glad it's now back for season five but hate having to wait a week for the next one.
Boots! Now the colder weather looks like it is here to stay, I have dug my worn, old, faithful boots out of the cupboard and plan to wear them every single day. At least until they fall off my feet, or my Mummy buys me a lovely new pair as a 30th birthday present (hint hint). And hats and scarves. Even though the last few days have been bright and sunny, there is certainly a chill in the air. Luckily, Lily is quite obsessed with her hat and scarf set, so no persuasion needed to get them on when we're heading out.
We have quite eclectic music tastes in our household. Last week Matt downloaded 'The Sleepy Troubadour' by his old school friend, Brendan Lewes and we've had it on in the background for the last few days. My fave is 'She won't carry your flag' but you can watch 'Hot coals and fire' here:
I always love cooking and trying new recipes. I think it's great when you come across one you love so much it soon becomes an old favourite. That's exactly what happened with this delicious 'One Pot Burrito Bowl' by I Heart Naptime. It is so tasty! I cook mine without the burger and it is so yummy that even Matt eats it without seeming to notice it doesn't contain meat... Check out the recipe, and loads more here.
It's all change in our household right now. Matt started a new job in the summer, we're moving house and I'm leaving a job I loved as an Exec PA to take on a role as a school receptionist! I'm sure I'm going to love it too but I can't help feeling a (bit more than a) tad nervous. At the moment, I'm not sure what scares me most - the house move or the new job.
Who's idea was it to do two of the most stressful life experiences in just a couple of weeks?!
Oh yeah... mine...
