Things I've loved this week // 010

A little Sunday round-up, some of the little things that I've been loving this week!

All the eBay
Still decluttering, still finding stuff to sell. I'm amazed that over 2 years later that I am still making money from clearing out our unwanted possessions. I'm incredibly thankful as I know none of it is ever guaranteed to sell! This week I've had another huge purge, listing as much as I can. It's tedious, yes but my motivation is a clear house.... we're still very much on that journey!

Spring walks
I love, love, love being able to leave the house without wrestling tiny toddler fingers into gloves. It might still be a little cold out but the days are increasingly longer, the skies bluer and our morning walks filled with spring flowers and new life. Last week I saw my first ever baby pigeon whilst we were out walking.... it was Miss E who pointed it out. They are just as strange looking as you would imagine too!

This week Miss E has gained so much confidence. It's been wonderful to see her head for the swings at the park or repeatedly go down slides.... things she rarely takes much notice of! I hope that we can encourage it so that her independence continues to blossom over the coming months.

Like A Boy
This song. is. amazing. Nick Pitera was one of the first people I came across on youtube a few years ago and I am still such a fan today! You can't not like this song, it's strangely addictive....

Ugly Bug Ball
The other evening we bundled Miss E up and took her out to see the lantern carnival which is a local event that takes place once a year. The theme this year was Ugly Bug Ball which was just perfect as Miss E is forever crazy for beetles, bugs and butterflies! She had a blast spotting caterpillars, bees and other favourite creatures in the form of beautifully made lanterns. There is always something happening in our city and mostly I feel very thankful to live here! 

What have you been loving this week? Let me know in a comment!


  1. Sounds like a fun week! I am also loving the fact that we can go out and enjoy the sunshine. We went out for the whole day last week, just going from playground to playground. It was lovely! Looking forward to long summer days.

  2. I need to do a declutter and sell stuff. I was thinking of doing a car boot sale for a change. I do sell the odd thing on ebay, but sometimes it can be a hassle.

  3. Those lanterns look adorable and I love eBay too, sold a few of Emma's items last winter, made decent money for them too.xx

  4. Looks like you've been having a great week. I myself need to declutter and get ebaying, it's so much effort though!! Love the song :P xx

  5. Selling old stuff on the likes of ebay is a goldmine, ones man's junk is another mans treasure as they say. I love ebay!I need a little decluttering meself...

  6. I am loving Spring too! I also need to have a big eBay clear out just need to find the motivation! x

  7. eBay is awesome. The only thing that's frustrating is the amount you have to pay in fees! Now that my eldest is back at school and hubs is back at work after paternity leave, I'll be starting to eBay some of our unwanted things. I have a box full ready and waiting! x

  8. Ebay is fab for selling unwanted stuff! I made over £200 a couple of years ago from old clothes. I found Instagram really good for selling Lamb sold clothes. I also love spring walks. I'll be doing a lot of those to help get baby number 2 out in the next few weeks!! xx

  9. Sounds like a fab week. We're big Ebay users - I hate throwing stuff away and it's nice to make a few bob on there selling items on. xx
