Harry Potter, Dresses and Nachos #LittleLoves

This week has flown by – we spent last weekend at a beautiful hotel in the Cotswolds but then spent the rest of the week with a house full of sickness – LP had conjunctivitis and I’ve been full of a cold. I’m hoping next week brings good health for all of us!

Here are a few things we’ve been loving this week….


After four weeks of pretty constant reading – and evening turning the laptop off early in the evenings – I have finally finished the Harry Potter books for the second time. This is another tick off my Bucket List for the year and I had forgotten how good the books were – there were just so many twists and they are definitely worth reading if you haven’t read them yet.

It’s only right that Harry Potter movies should follow on from Harry Potter books. This week we’ve watched Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and also Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and although the latter was one of my favourite books I don’t think the movie did it justice.


This week I have been listening to LP serenading us with songs that she’s learnt at school. There’s one about how she’s unique and another about growing seeds. I should record them really – it’s amazing how quick they pick things up.


I’ve been wearing two new dresses from Dorothy Perkins and absolutely love them. They fit in well to my uniform of leggings and dresses or tunic tops and are just so comfortable!

Is there anything better than homemade nachos? Technically, Hubby made these but I could live off them. They are my ultimate comfort food and I think I could eat a tray of them all to myself!

and lastly…

This weekend we have pretty much no plans and I am looking forward to relaxing, grabbing a few hours as a family between Hubby’s night shifts – and the time he spends sleeping them off – and doing a whole lot of not very much. Sometimes those weekends are the best type and are very much needed. Whatever you get up to, have a lovely weekend – and a great Mothers Day too!

    Mmm now I REALLY want nachos, they look so yummy! I think the Harry Potter movies are still some of my favourite films of all time, even the cheesiness of the first one haha xx

    Dress looks lovely on you – Enjoy your relaxed weekend! I’ve never read the Harry Potters but intend on reading them with whichever daughter I can persuade to! x

    Loving the homemade Nachos. My partner makes the BEST nachos I’ve ever had, and we had them last week. Real comfort food.
    The post is also a good reminder to break out the Harry Potter as the children haven’t read any yet. Perhaps I’ll start off reading it to the kids. I think I could do an excellent Hagrid voice…

    Ooh yes, love that dress, looks casually comfy 🙂 and great idea to re-read HP, I might copy you on that!

    Wow Donna I am in awe that you have read them all TWICE and I have never even read one of them *hangs head in shame. I really should make it my mission to read them this year. Those nachos look delicious. I never think to make them at home. Have a lovely relaxing weekend too. Its nice to not have any plans as such x

    I’ve just finished reading the Harry Potter books. It is definitely something I try to get through at least once a year; they never get boring! Although I do pretty much read 7 different books/series throughout the year, every year!
    Oooo Nachos!!! So want them now!

    I still haven’t ever read a single Harry Potter book. One of my friends keeps on at me about reading them, I really should give them a go.
    Those Nachos look delicious, my comfort food of choice is quite often Fajitas, I love them! xx

    That dress really suits you. Glad you had a good time in the Cotswolds (I love it there so I’m rather jealous), shame you all got ill when you came home. Hope you’re all better next week x
