Weekend happiness: 24th April 2017


This is a bit of a cheat post, really, because our weekend actually started on Thursday. My genius husband had the amazing idea that rather than taking extra days off directly after the Easter weekend, we could go back to work for a couple of days and then have another long weekend. I literally skipped home on Wednesday! And then here’s how the long weekend unfolded… View Full Post

What is it about bank holiday weekends which just make everything so much better? I had a spring in my step (sorry, excuse the seasons pun there) all of last week just because I knew that come Friday, instead of being in the office I would be having my hair cut and wandering around the shops.

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)… View Full Post
