Little Loves – Witches, Whiplash and noses

10 February, 2017 9 Comments



While in the library with Art the other day, I came across a book that looked rather interesting. Cats and witches? Hello! It’s like this book was made especially for me. Wildwitch: Wildfire follows the story of 12 year old Clara who is attacked by a cat and then through a series of events learns that she is a wild witch. It’s a book aimed at older children, but I really enjoyed it. It’s pure escapism and a fun adventure and I found myself wishing Betsy was a bit older so I could read it to her.


Caught Whiplash on Netflix the other day. Have you seen this film? It’s incredible. You find yourself SO TENSE throughput the whole film and JK Simmonds is so bloody good in it. It’s well worth a watch, I can’t recommend it enough.


Found myself listening to Elise Blaha’s conversation with Ali Edwards about their one little words for this year again. It’s really interesting to hear what others choose for their word of the year and I’ve been catching up with my OLW project this week (I take Ali’s One Little Word workshop) because I have also been doing…


…February’s OLW prompt is to practice something every day and I have chosen to practice my watercolour lettering this month. It’s a really nice thing to do, meditative and creative and the perfect thing to do sitting in front of the telly.


Red noses! They’re back! One of them is already broken since buying them! They’re the tribbles of the modern world – my house is going to be full of them by the time Red Nose Day comes around!

And lastly…

IT’S HALF TERM! I may have mentioned that before. I’m looking forward to it! I only do the school run twice a week, but I’m bloody exhausted. SO looking forward to mornings of taking it easy and not doing much. Hope you lot do too!

    My children have been asking for Red Noses but I’ve told them it’s not the date yet as I don’t want them broken or lost before Comic Relief. Yay for half term, we all need a rest from the daily routine.

    Wildwitch looks like the kind of novel I’d have adored as a tween. I’m so glad it’s half term too – Christmas seems like a long time ago. Hope you have a good week xx

    Oh lucky you – we’ve got another week to go before Half Term and I’ve got two days off and I can’t wait! I love the colour of your watercolour letters – is it the same principle as calligraphy (thick on the down stroke and thin on the up)?

    I am so excited that it’s half term! I’m so envious of your watercolour painting, I used to paint as a teenager – I got an A in GCSE art – but gave it up a long time ago. I should start again x

    I hope you have been enjoying half term. We have loved the chilled out time together as a family. Kids have needed it. I haven’t heard of Whiplash will have to check it out. Thanks for recommending. We are huge Netflix watchers. Hope you had a good weekend just past. #littleloves
