We are absolutely flying through Feb, aren’t we?! I didn’t manage to do a weekend post on Monday because there was a little thing called my sister’s wedding which was happening and kind of took all of my attention. But it also made my week. Here are a few of the lovely things that have happened this week (spoiler: the wedding is the main one)…
My big sister got married. After months of planning, so much attention to detail and organisation, the wedding day finally arrived on Monday. We spent Sunday with the other bridesmaids and my mum, getting our nails done and making corsages, and then on Sunday evening my sister and I headed to the hotel. We saw family, did some last minute sewing, and had room service. It meant that on Monday morning (aka w-day) we woke up excited and with lots of time to be calm, enjoy breakfast and head to the venue. Then the best day ever happened and it was awesome.
Seeing family. Yes I know this is related to the above point, but at our wedding almost two years ago we saw extended family but not for that long because we had lots of other guests as well. At this wedding I got to properly catch up with family on both my mum and dad’s sides which was so lovely.
Valentine’s day. We aren’t big on this but we do get each other cards, Richard bought be a rose and we had an M&S meal deal tea in the form of steak and chips which was so yummy. Then I fell asleep on the sofa because I am just the most romantic woman to be married to.
Deliveroo. On Wednesday evening I was home alone tackling a mountain of freelance work so I decided to bite the bullet and order deliveroo. I went for a stone baked pizza from our favourite local pizza restaurant, plus a coke and a pizza dolce for pudding which is basically a roll of pizza dough with nutella and coconut in the middle. It is a-mazing and made working until 10pm a little more bearable.
Being lazy. This week has been very full on, I have had the wedding plus so much work (both full time job and freelance) to catch up on, that something had to give. That something ended up being the gym, so this evening I am determined to bodypump and then to get out for a long walk over the weekend.
My husband turns 30. Ok so this technically doesn’t happen until tomorrow, but I am mega excited about it. It seems like no time since he was turning 18. In true ‘me’ form I haven’t gone for a simple present, instead I am arranging a memorable experience for each of the 12 months for the whole year he is 30. Yup, it probably would have been easier just to buy him a single present! But don’t forget I will turn 30 next year, so it’s a good incentive to help encourage him to do a good job for my present then haha. I’m obviously joking about that, I arrange these things because I love him and want to share these experiences with him.
Now onto the weekend. How was your week?
