We’re currently on holiday in Mallorca and I’m loving having the break from technology – I have been posting on social media but not reading it as I usually would and have switched off data on my phone, only using it with wifi in the villa – and it’s lovely to not have my phone with me all the time, a constant drain on my attention. But, I feel like I have little things to share this week so popping back online for this weekly Little Loves instalment!

Here’s what we’ve been loving this week:


I managed to read a whole book which hasn’t happened in a while! I picked The Loving Husband up in the supermarket just before we left for our holiday and read it in a couple of days. It was a real page turner – some bits were a bit drawn out and a few of the characters were hard to warm to but the story was gripping and with so many plot twists – it kept me guessing right to the very end.

Dave and I haven’t watched much this week as for the first half we couldn’t have wifi and the TV in our villa and when this was rectified we could only get Spanish channels or BBC news but we did turn to trusty Netflix and watched a movie a couple of nights ago – The Water Diviner. It’s a war story with Russell Crowe and although quite bleak in places it was a really good movie with a lot of history in it – teaching me more about the first world war that I wasn’t aware of. It had an underlying love story and is well worth watching.


Mostly LP and Little Man singing songs to themselves – Yellow Submarine, the Dino Trux theme tune and a song from school called Spring Chicken. They both sing pretty much constantly and it’s lovely to hear – until they sing the same song on repeat for a day or two!


The most we have made this week is sandcastles with the children! It has been lovely to spend so much time on so many different beaches, eating ice creams, enjoying each other’s company and just relaxing in the sun.

We’ve all been in shorts, t-shirts and sandals all week and it has been lovely! It’s so nice to feel the sun on our skin and although it’s been quite chilly in the evenings it’s been lovely through the day and we’ve all loved our holiday weather.

and lastly…

We’re flying back early tomorrow and it has come round far too quickly. I could easily stay here for another week. There is nothing ‘Easter’ about my Little Loves this week but we are spending Sunday at LP and Little Man’s grandparents’ for an Easter Egg hunt! Have a lovely Easter whatever you get up to.

  • I’ve been following your posts on social media and it looks like you’ve been having a wonderful time! Mallorca is such a beautiful place – I can’t wait to go back when the kids are all a bit older. Enjoy your last couple of days there. #LittleLoves

  • We were in Majorca 2 years ago and we have just returned from Greece. I love going away at this time of year as it’s not too hot (having red head children too). Though I think we were unlucky with the weather this year, as some days it was hotter back home. Safe flight back home and enjoy your Easter Sunday #littleloves x

  • Looks like you’re having a fantastic time, well deserved too! Love the picture of Athena in the pink doughnut, fun! Enjoy your Easter weekend xx

  • So jealous of your Mallorca trip, I haven’t been since I was younger than your two. Always looks so beautiful in photos. Ha ha I feel for you being subjected to Spanish tv – I lived in Spain for 5 years and the tv is horrendous! Hope you have a good flight home and enjoy the rest of the bank holiday x

  • I love Mallorca! I went to Palma in October for a couple of weeks and absolutely adored it. It’s so beautiful. I’m glad you’re having lots of fun on holiday. It’s so nice to relax in the sun for a little while, make sandcastles and actually get to read a whole book. 😀 Very jealous. xxx

  • I’ve been following your holiday over on social media and it’s looked amazing – all that sunshine! You deserved a good holiday though. You work so hard and I’m pleased to hear that you switched off even if just for a week. Hope you enjoyed the Easter egg hunt. xx

  • Ooh I love the holiday feels in this post, that last picture is especially fab! We’ve not long got back, and I completely agree about enjoying the break from the internet.. sometimes it’s just what you need xx
