New school year, pompoms and Doctor Foster #LittleLoves


I’m not really sure how I expected this week to go, but I feel like I’ve got a little spring back in myself. It was tough going back to work after such a good break. But. Along with the children getting back into the swing of school, I feel like I’m keeping on top of things. Minus of course a pretty big chunk of work. But hey, I can throw myself into that next week. For now, it’s about appreciating some Little Loves.


After two quite heavy books in The Essex Serpent and All the Light Does Not See I thought I’d better go light. I picked up Sophie Kinsella’s My Not So Perfect Life. It was everything I hoped it would be. Fortunately. 

It’s a completely lovely story. Perfect for a bit of light summer reading. My Not So Perfect LifeI’m now wondering what I should next turn to, having built up a few books in my plight to make sure I read one fiction book a month.


We watched Jonathan Ross after a family evening of the X-Factor on Saturday. Suranne Jones was being interviewed talking about the new series of Dr Foster. Which had completely passed me by. So this week included a binge on i-player and completely loving the detail of series 1. 

And yes, I completely loved the first episode of series 2.


I’ve been rediscovering Feeder this week which has made returning to train journeys to London a lot more enjoyable.


We are now starting the ‘making’ elements of CM’s rainbow themed bedroom. This includes a pompom rug and pompom filled letters. There is something comforting about the feel of a pompoms so I’ve been enjoying this task.Pompoms


I’m back in work mode which sees me rotating a series of staples. On the other hand we of course had the excitement of the children climbing back into their uniforms. Far more exciting. 

New school year

And lastly

And for me, it’s back to uni. I have an assignment which needs to be resubmitted at the end of the month which I’m completely uninspired by. Fortunately Mr J has given me a good talking to. It turns out he’s not supportive of me dropping out. So I’m motivating myself with the thought of my first module in October.

    I also watched Jonathan Ross and am really enjoying this series. And Dr Foster! Wow, so exciting. I loved series 1 and am now into series 2. I hope it isn’t a let down. Weird having the kids all trot off back to school isn’t it? Sounds like you’re a very busy lady!
