Seaside, Shapes and San Andreas #LittleLoves

Hello! This week has been another one full of bugs. We’ve all got rotten colds, and I had a migraine one night this week which always makes me feel really poorly. I’ve been trying to give myself a little bit of a break and having some really (like 7.30pm!!) early nights. I feel so tired and run down, and this weekend and the forthcoming Easter holidays can’t come quick enough! We did have a really, really lovely day on Sunday though – we woke up and the sun was shining. We abandoned our plans to do the garden and drove to the seaside for the day – a mere five hor round trip!

Anyway, onto this week’s Little Loves…


On Saturday night, we sat and watched San Andreas. I am an absolute sucker for a good disaster movie, and this one didn’t disappoint. I really like Dwayne Johnson, and I think the effects in the movie were brilliant. I also found myself watching a documentary on the big trains that run through Alaska but I can’t remember what it was called. It was actually really good. Some of those freight trains are absolutely huge!


Not a lot this week! I’ve been carrying on with reading my Torey Hayden books, but to be honest, I’ve found myself dozing off after a couple of pages.


Nothing that stands out in particular, but we listened to an awful lot of music on the journey to and back from the seaside. We even heard most of the top 40 charts – I haven’t sat and listened to that since I was about 15!


My hair in its natural state!! For the past few years I’ve kept getting it all chopped off when it reached my shoulders, which was stupid because it’s so much more high maintenance when it’s short. I have quite wavy/curly hair but only when it gets to a certain length. It’s reached that point, so I can literally wash it in the morning, leave it to dry naturally and it looks semi-decent!



I’ve been making lots of resources for the children I work with at school – I’m pretty sick of printing, cutting and laminating! I’ve also been making things for the boys. One of Harrison’s main targets at school is to remember the names of 2d and 3d shapes. I’ve printed and laminated a set of A4 posters to go up in the playroom, which he loves, and some flashcards to practise with. I’ve also found these great print outs of 3d objects from Twinkl which are helping. The good thing about doing all of this with Harrison is that Alex is picking it all up as well. He knows the difference between a hexagon, pentagon and octogon, which is pretty good going for a three year old!

And Lastly…

I’ve been really practising and playing with the various settings on my bridge camera. After Easter I will be getting a lens for the DSLR that I was given ages ago, so watch out for lots of out of focus and blurry photos whilst I get to grips with it!

How was your week?

One thought on “Seaside, Shapes and San Andreas #LittleLoves”

  1. Sounds like that 5 hour round trip to the beach was worth it! I’m so lucky we live right by the sea, although we don’t actually go to the beach that often, think the novelty has worn off a bit plus it’s always rammed whenever the weather is nice. Your hair looks lovely. I always found shorter hair more work too. Hope you’re all on the mend and have a lovely weekend x
