Losing Weight, Liar and Loneliness #LittleLoves

I was a little preoccupied last week with adjusting to having three children at school, opposed to one. We had such a lovely summer that as it ended and I knew school edged ever closer, it felt somewhat bittersweet. The girls have spent over a week in reception class and it’s safe to say that despite an initial first day wobble, they’ve taken to it better than I ever could have coped for. I am also trying to get used to being home alone for six hours a day.

After reading that The Highway Rat is going to be on TV this Christmas, I decided I would get us a copy. I’m sure we had it from the library a while back, but I wanted to buy the book so we can read it on the lead up so everyone is aware of it. I also indulged in a few trashy magazines as my husband is away in Norway working for ten days so I have been quite lonely of an evening. I am getting old as I know so little about the celeb world!

I tuned in to watch Liar on ITV and was hooked. I have really gotten into TV lately seeing as my husband has been away so much. I didn’t realise it was a six part series so was pleased, but not quite sure how they’ll be able to string it out for 6 weeks? We shall see. I found it really good although it raises such a huge question for both sides of rape/rape accusations for both parties.

A few weeks ago, I binge watched all of Doctor Foster so am now watching it “in real time” I find myself having to bite my lip throughout as I bloody HATE Simon. He is SO smug and so annoying to watch – hats off to the actor who plays him absolutely spot on to stir up such hatred. I still have the last few episodes of The Crown to get through on Netflix too. So much good TV on at the moment!

I swear I was born in the wrong decade; at 31 my radio station of choice is Smooth FM. I have been having it on pretty much all day when I am at home now I don’t have kids TV on loop. I absolutely love the classics they play and can often be found belting out a mowtown classic at midday.

I definitely think the chance of an Indian Summer have slipped away under a river of rain. I have dug out all my jumpers and have been hibernating under them. This is a favourite that I bought a few weeks ago (apologies for the multiple recycled image of me!)

I got it from a shop in our local town that has been there forever and sells such gorgeous stuff. It’s so soft and I adore the colour too.

I finally made it back to the gym! As regular readers will know, I gained a whopping stone over the summer holidays so it’s been mission lose weight. I am pleased to say I lost 3.5lbs last week and today will be my third gym session this week. I am hoping that this will expedite the weight loss and I’ll see a good number again next Tuesday morning on the scales.

The girls were sent a Barbie styling head so we’ve had lots of fun playing and making up some wacky hairdos. They absolutely love it but lets hope they don’t decide they want pink hair!

I am off to London ON MY OWN on Tuesday! I am off to a Netflix event and am super excited. Quite weirdly, also about travelling on my own. I know for many it’s not something they’d relish in but I am quite looking forward to being carefree, albeit for 24 hours.

    Love that jumper! Well done on losing 3.5lb that’s amazing! I loved Liar, cant wait for the next episode. My little one was reading the Highway Rat this week, he loved it! I may have to see if the library have it in and re read it with him too. Have a great weekend! x

    Have a lovely time on Tuesday! I think I’m the only person not watching Dr Foster, maybe I should change that… x #LittleLoves

    Well done on the weight loss ! that jumper looks great on you. I’m not sure about Liar yet, I can’t decide if I want to invest into 6 weeks of it. I’ve heard good things about Dr Foster so I might give that a go. x

    I have serious FOMO with Doctor Foster – everyone’s talking about it but I have zero time for grown-up up TV at the moment 🙁 Like most shows I’ll probably end up binge watching when everyone else is over it!

    Oh the Netflix events are always good too have fun. Love the top you are wearing here perfect for Autumn. I haven’t watched Doctor Foster yet but it’s on my list. #littleloves

    Hope you had a fab time at the Netflix event. They were so much fun last year when I went.
    Oh gosh Dr Foster has me continually shouting at the tv! I get far too involved. I’m keen to see where they take Liar too. I think there’s a lot more to each of the character’s back stories to come out yet.
