Alanis Morissette, Stew and Thanks #LittleLoves

This week has been one tinged with sickness, mildly, but the children have generally been emotional and out of sorts. I think the excitement of school holidays just leave them tired and a little overwhelmed – especially when they still insist on getting up at their typical time every day.


This week I haven’t read much at all. But I have been reading lots of blogs. Lots. Constantly. I love blogging – have you realised yet? But more than actual blogging I love reading other blogs. Starting to read other blogs regularly was one of the best things I started doing and because of that I have started a new blog series – What the Redhead read!


Most of this week Hubby has been at work in the evenings and so I have been watching LOADS of Hollyoaks and Home and Away – my guilty pleasure that records in our room each evening and I sit in bed and watch it, whilst blogging, whenever I get the chance.

Other than that Hubby watched Ted 2 a couple of nights ago and I presume it was good as he spent most of it in hysterics. Who doesn’t love a swearing teddy bear?!


I went for a run a couple of days ago and listened to Alanis Morissette – Jagged Little Pill whilst I was out. It took me back to being an angsty teenager again! I saw Alanis at Party in the Park when I was about 19 and she was incredible – listening to her sing all the classics with just her guitar was utterly amazing.


Nothing exciting at all. I have lived in jeans, long sleeved tops and a bodywarmer this week – loving the nicer weather (apart from the April showers!) But apart from that I haven’t worn anything special. We did spend a day together at home in comfy lazy clothes though – and the kids wore their onesies.

I made the best lamb stew this week. One that tasted just like the meals of my childhood. It was pretty amazing and one of my favourite dinners. You cannot beat stew and crusty bread!

and Lastly

I don’t have anything else to share really this week, instead I just want to take the opportunity to say thanks. Thanks for reading and for taking a moment out of your lives to stop by. I really appreciate it.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

    Always nice to be in cozy clothes at home for a relaxing day in. I love those days. Sounds like you have been enjoying spring time and that food looks yum. Off to check out your new series lovely. Have a great weekend ahead. #littleloves

    I LOVE Jagged Little Pill. It’s one of those albums that I have listened to thousands of times.

    Your “What the redhead read” got me thinking of other rhyming titles you could have:

    What the redhead shed – Either a series about weightloss and the pounds you’ve shed, or which item this week you have decided to put in your garden shed.

    What the redhead wed – Hubby’s own little corner of the website.

    What the redhead fed – Donna’s recipe corner.

    What the redhead led – Management tips direct from you.

    What the redhead bed – Well… maybe let’s not go there lol

    Ah Alanis Morrissette brings back memories for me too. Did you make the bread to go with your stew as well? It looks great!

    That lamb stew looked soooooo good – I’m coming for dinner at your house next time I’m back in the I LOVED that Alanis album tooooooo when I was younger, oh happy days and angsty memories πŸ™‚ x x

    I absolutely love the Head Over Feet song – I actually sang it as someone’s first wedding dance song once. With my ex-boyfriend playing in the band they had hired… Awkward turtle! I’m not a fan of lamb, but swap it for beef and that stew is my idea of the perfect comfort food paired with some yummy dumplings. Looking forward to your new blog series xx

    It feels like I haven’t stopped by in ages, I’m so sorry about that. I’ve let things get on top of me!
    That Alanis song brings back so many memories. I remember sat in a park with my best friend singing it at the top of our voices, I’ve no idea why! It’s funny the things you remember (and did as a kid!) isn’t it?
    I love comfy days like that and so do my girls, we all need them from time to time that’s for sure xx
