You will find me with a big smile on my face for the next few weeks as it is half term! Whilst I love my job, I love the holidays just as much with the chance to switch off and unwind. Not that I will be doing too much relaxation – work is already underway to redecorate our guest bedroom, I have had a good catch-up and lunch date with work friends, my parents have come to stay and I have a trip to London, a wedding and more coffee dates with friends to fit in before school starts again.
This week I have been…
Making: some really tasty salads
Going: for lunch dates with friends
Wearing: old clothes as I end up covered in paint after approximately 20 minutes of decorating
Eating: this amazing crumble cooked by my brother’s girlfriend – thanks Tess!
Drinking: coconut water – I’ve got a real taste for it again
Reading: endless interior design websites
Watching: the Cameron/ Milliband interviews
Buying: new rugs, blinds, paint, bedding and accessories for the guest bedroom
Planning: my next wedding outfit
Cooking: this amazing chicken and quinoa salad
Baking: nothing this week…trying to be good!
Writing: shopping lists
Favouriting: Milly’s New York trip – so many little things added to our to-do list!
Working on: putting all the clocks, watches and various kitchen appliances forward an hour
Trying to decide: if I will be tempted by the latest ASOS and Body Shop sales (spoiler – 2 orders placed!)
Wishing: this blister on my painting hand would disappear #DIYproblems
Enjoying: having my Mum and Dad to stay
Needing: to book a cut and colour soon
Feeling: very happy at the thought of not having to get up at 6:30am tomorrow morning
Giggling at: Gogglebox, standard
