I am in the final week before half term and it really can’t come soon enough! I am more than ready for Spring to arrive now…lighter mornings, warmer days and daffodils and tulips everywhere.
We have had my Dad and Ian’s parents and Grandad to visit this weekend so have been cooking and cleaning in preparation for seeing them. On the plus side, we’ve got a tidy house and have eaten some lovely food but this hosting lark is tiring stuff!
This week I have been…
Making: a real effort to practise my Pilates stretches every day
Going: outside each morning to enjoy the sprinklings of snow we have had this week
Wearing: the tartan scarf my Mum bought me for Christmas
Eating: homemade burgers with bacon jam, guacamole and served in lovely brioche buns
Drinking: these sachets of Options hot chocolate
Reading: a new book based in Paris with lots of foodie details
Watching: the beautiful sunrises and sunsets we’ve had
Buying: berries for breakfast this week
Planning: places to visit when Ian and I take a little mini-break over half term
Cooking: tom yum soup…almost ready to share this one on the blog
Baking: a new cheesecake brownie hybrid
Writing: angry emails to the council after they cut down one of our trees without permission!
Favouriting: some new manicure ideas using my new nail stickers
Working on: feeling more confident
Trying to decide: what to do when our friends visits at the weekend
Wishing: my Mum a lovely trip to Iceland and hoping she gets a glimpse of the Northern Lights
Enjoying: my new iPhone6
Needing: to knuckle down and get an essay written for a qualification I’m trying to do this year
Feeling: fully relaxed after a daytime bath…the ultimate in indulgence no?
Giggling at: Ian embracing his ‘man-mask’!
