What did we read, create and love in May?

Hello everyone, I hope you had a good May, we having been enjoying some beautiful sunshine at the end of the month.

Here is my monthly post where I look back at the month and share some of the things we have been reading, creating and loving!

Thank you once again for reading my blog!


Tom and I read together “Danny champion of the world” by Roald Dahl. Tom really enjoyed the story and is now constantly looking out for pheasant (………..in Lewisham!). When we first started reading it I wasn’t sure about the storyline…….. but of course I was won over! A great story of a father and son relationship.

This month, I read “Jo Molane: My story” by Jo Molane- this is her biography. What a great inspiring read! She certainly hasn’t had life easy but with faith and determination she has achieved an amazing dream business!

We have been reading “Yucky worms” by Vivian French, it is lovely gentle story book full of information. For my book share click here!


We have been really enjoying getting creative this month, here are three of our favourites: Favourite animal art, clay sculptures and fizzy prints!


These are the little things I have loved and smiled about this month:

Simple family fun…… woods, baking, parks…. just never seem to get enough of it!

Honest chats, I really love the media campaign #itisoktosay so much better to be open about how we feel- everyone goes through ups and down. Let be there to support one another!

Words cannot express how happy we were to attend a beautiful 3 year olds dedication service –  life goes in so many different directions….. but when something so utterly amazing comes together so perfectly, we are truly thankful!

A couple of friends and I attended a Betty Etiquette modern calligraphy class. It was great to have a go at something new, will keep practicing! It was a lovely evening!

I know I talk about this often but I really love supporting local businesses and I feel excited that I can do this in the area I live in! I love the fact I go into a local gift shop and they know me by name…….. I am a regular at local in the butchers and we have a choice in lovely independent cafes! #smile

I love exploring new places! This month we went out to celebrate a friends birthday and we went to Caravan Bankside, the food was amazing and I want to go back and order exactly the same food!

Finally got mention my last smile…… blue skies and sunshine, horray!

Thanks for reading, hope you had a good May, I’d love to know what you have been reading, creating and loving, you can use the hashtag #readcreatelove to let me know!  Happy June everyone xxx
