I am writing this from our beautiful hotel room where we have just checked in and are killing some time before our friends’ wedding. Ian is practising his wedding reading and feeling a bit nervous whereas I am enjoying a cuppa with some Easter egg chocolate.
It has been a really great week! With the help of my parents, the guest bedroom is almost finished and lots more jobs around the house have been ticked off the to-do list. Ian and I had the most amazing few days in London squeezing in lots of good food, catch-ups with best friends and the most fun evening drinking German beer!
This week I have been…
Making: a start on my next cross stitch project
Going: to an excellent German Beer Festival at Alexandra Palace
Wearing: my new espadrilles…my anchor obsession shows no signs of fading
Eating: Schnitzel with one of my best friends
Drinking: Hibiscus margaritas
Reading: research papers for a qualification I’m doing for work…interesting but so time-consuming!
Watching: The debate and loving the fact that there were three women on the panel
Buying: beautiful lighting for our almost – finished guest bedroom (the fun part of decorating!)
Planning: a spa-day with my besties
Cooking: these quiches (chorizo, courgette and Parmesan and a caramelised onion and goat cheese)
Baking: these Yorkshire puddings which got my brother’s seal of approval
Writing: blog posts as we zoom along the M5!
Favouriting: Khila’s vlogs about her trip to Vegas…take me back!
Working on: mastering the perfect Pilates plank
Trying to decide: whether to go short again at the hairdressers
Wishing: Chester and Louise a wonderful wedding day!
Enjoying: the lighter evenings and mornings now that the clocks have changed
Needing: a good night’s sleep!
Feeling: like I have squeezed so much into the last week
Giggling at: Ian catching my Dad out with an April Fool joke!
