The National Trust, Building Snowmen & Cloth Nappies | #LittleLoves


It's been a busy week for us. Passing in a blur of preschool, teething and not much sleep. The main reason I love writing these #littleloves posts though, is so I can remember the good instead.

Yes, the lack of sleep has been rubbish... but I've loved the snuggles that come with co-sleeping. 

Yes, Parker's clinginess has meant not much has been done... but isn't it nice to just sit back, and just relax with the little ones once in a while?

So here's this week's little loves...


Our new National Trust handbook came through this week, and it's got me soo excited for this years adventures. I know I'm probably way too young to get excited about this kind of thing, but it really is the best £6 we spend a month!


Who else watched this series of Sherlock? I'm still unsure of what I thought of the finale. Of course the acting was brilliant, and I loved that they left it open for more. But I was left feeling confused at a few parts. And the clown?! Jesus that was terrifying!

I also watched Parker have his second swimming lesson on Sunday. Despite forgetting the swimming gear (next week we won't have any disasters), he did really well. It's lovely to see Jack and P getting some quality time together. And you can tell he's already getting more confident in the water.


I honestly cannot think of anything this week! 


Do you wanna build a snowmaaaaaan?

Like I predicted in last week's post, the snow where we live was gone by morning. But luckily we managed to find some after a little drive. Indie was so excited and loved building her very first snowman with daddy.

We did have to get creative with the eyes, and Indie wasn't impressed that I put her bow on it... but it's a memory I'll remember forever!


How gorgeous are these cloth nappies?

We're having trouble with leaking nappies at the moment - not only is it horrible for P, but the washing was getting ridiculous too! So when Bambino Mio got in touch, I thought why not give them a go. I'll let you know how we got on soon.

And Lastly...

With Parker *hopefully* on the mend (he's currently teething and has a viral infection the poor thing), I'm really looking forward to a fun-filled weekend.

I'm off to the cinema with Indie tomorrow morning to watch Trollz. After seeing so many people rave about in their #littleloves posts I think I'm more excited than she is!

  1. I've heard that the National Trust membership is well worth it, and I'm sure you'll be making lots of new family memories in the near future! Enjoy the cinema, and I hope Parker feels better soon.

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  2. We're off to see Trollz on Sunday - I cannot wait! Trolls were the thing of my childhood :) Parker looks like he's loving his swimming lessons and I'm sure you'll love National trust. We've been members for a year or two now and wouldn't be without it. Have a great weekend x

  3. Trolls is brilliant - it's funny for kids and adults which is always good. The soundtrack is good too, although it's been playing in our car for a couple of months now and I'm a wee bit sick of it!! Love the snowman, and the Costa pic - so cute. Have a lovely weekend xx

  4. Love the snowman. I keep wondering about joining the national trust. They do have good events on for families. I've had a similar week as my little one is teething too. I've been using cloth nappies for 5 months, feel free to ask if you have any questions. I struggled with fitting them at first as I was putting them on like disposables. Not sure it is as much as a problem by Parker's size though. I love my bambino mio but they are the least absorbant nappy I own unfortunately.

  5. Oh no teething and viruses and swimming and snow. WOW there is so much going on this week for you all. Hoping you get a great weekend ahead to chill out for it too. Lovely photos. Popping over from #littleloves Happy Weekend.

  6. How wonderful that you managed to have fun in the snow. Love the picture of Indie with her Costa! I've been debating a National Trust membership for a while now. Hope Parker feels better soon. Enjoy your weekend xx

  7. I honestly couldn't be without our NT membership now!! I'm still super jealous you had snow a short drive away. Hope Parker's on the mend teething can be so rough. Ahh were going to have the same morning were off to see Trollz in the morning it's on at the kids cinema, Amelia's so excited!!

  8. Have fun watching Trollz, we watched it this morning again. It's such a lovely film. Ha ha I would be excited by a National Trust membership too. Glad the kids got to have fun in the snow x

  9. We're thinking about getting a National Trust membership. The inlaws gave us money for Christmas and we like to spend it on experiences rather than stuff and I think the National Trust could be a good option.
    Hope you enjoyed Trolls! xx

  10. We've had a bit of a teething and lack of sleep issue in our house at the moment too. I've had to skip the Sherlock part as haven't seen series 4 yet and don't want any spoilers. The cloth nappies look great from bambino mio, would love to hear what you think of them.
