Gallery Girl, Game of Thrones and Glasses #LittleLoves

This was one of my favourite linkies to join in with last year, but somewhere towards the end of the year, I sort of lost track and completely forgot. My aim for 2017 is to join in as often as I possibly can!

This week’s Little Loves…


I’m in the middle of reading Gallery Girl by Wendy Holden. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book but now Graham works some nights, I can go to bed and read without worrying about disturbing him. I’m aiming to read at least one a month. Considering I used to read a book in about three hours, that should be pretty doable!

Game of Thrones. We tried watching it when it first came out all those years ago, but we had a newborn baby at the time and I think we were just too knackered to be able to focus properly on it. We have set it to series record on Sky from the beginning and even though six years on we are both still knackered, we’re really enjoying it!


Lots of meals. I’ve started meal planning which has kept me a bit more organised, and when it’s been possible, I’ve made double of everything and frozen it in foil containers for easy home-made ready meals. At the moment I have a huge shepherd’s pie in the oven!


Glasses!  Just before Christmas, I found out I needed to wear glasses. I was really surprised because I thought I might need them for reading and computers, so was shocked to find out my eyesight is pretty crap and I needed them all the time. I’ve been pretty good, only forgetting them a few times over Christmas. I realise when I have them on how bad my eyesight is – I must have just got used to being as blind as a bat!


The sound of peace and quiet. Well, for a couple of hours each day anyway. It’s been a lovely Christmas holiday, but so so noisy. The kids at the end of last week/beginning of this week were so ready to go back to school and it was getting very noisy in our house. I’m making the most of the mornings when it is just Benjamin and me!

And lastly

Can you believe it is 2017?  I’m quite excited about the start of a new year for once – I think this year is going to be a good one!

  1. Love your glasses! Every time I go I always get larger frames than I previously had, love this style! I need to give Game of Thrones another go, Mr B keeps saying I should but I just didn’t get on with it. Happy New Year! Popping over from #littleloves

    It’s crazy how fast the new year has come round, but I do love a fresh start with the new year.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Happy New Year to you too! Your glasses look fabulous – I’ve been wearing glasses full time since I was about five so they’re just part of me now – you know you’ve got used to them when you’re not wearing them and you try to push them up your nose!

  4. The glasses look great! It’s amazing when you get them on and realise how much of a difference they make, isn’t it? And yay Game Of Thrones! One of my favourite TV shows. Get used to a lot of twists and turns, haha. Really hope you enjoy it. Have a great weekend x

  5. I really need to start doing meal planning we normally just open the fridge after school run to figure out what to eat. I know awful way to do meals. EEK, We absolutely loved loved Game of Thrones all over December. We have been late to the party and got it all done in a month. So good! Enjoy! Happy New Year, popping over from #littleloves!

  6. Another one with kids ready to go back to school – I hear you!!! I wish that I was organised enough to meal plan, I’ve never been any good at keeping up with this *sigh*. I love going to bed to read too. Bliss.

  7. Oh, I will be honest and say that Game of Thrones never really appealed to me, and still doesn’t. Glad you’re enjoying it though! I’ve been meal planning (and sticking to it) too. I just need to keep it up! Your new glasses look great – enjoy your weekend xx

  8. I’m a big fan of meal planning and making extras for the freezer. Love your glasses. I’ve worn glasses or contact lenses since I was a child.

  9. Your glasses look lovely, Rachel, they really suit you.
    Game of Thrones is so intense isn’t it? I remember watching the first season when I was pregnant with my youngest, it wasn’t definitely harder to follow after I’d had her! I love it though and I’m gutted that this years season isn’t on until later in the year.
    Have a lovely weekend xx

  10. I was late to the party with Game of Thrones too. Didn’t start watching until Series 4 started so played catch up while everyone else was watching that and now I’m pretty much obsessed. Love your glasses, they look lovely on you. Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  11. Love your glasses, they really suit you! I need to watch Game of Thrones, heard lots of good stuff about it so think It will be the next series to watch! xx

  12. I started watching GoT with Hubby but it got to gorey for me! I cannot wait for our kitchen to be finished and we can start cooking properly again – I love cooking double and freezing it! x
