Due to the clock change and the Bank Holidays, I spent most of this weekend not knowing what time or day it was, hence being a day late with my weekly round-up…
I’m writing this from Gatwick Travelodge where we have just had a lovely little M&S picnic dinner in bed. We are flying to Havana tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited for some sunshine and relaxation.
I only ever take my Kindle away on holiday with me so I had to speed read the rest of this book before we left. It wasn’t the most gripping read, with the most dramatic twists taking place in the last few chapters, over 300 pages in. I have bought a few new titles to read this week which I can’t wait to get stuck in to.
Ian and I watched the finale of The Night Manager this week which was gripping. We have just started watching the new series of Line of Duty too – British drama really is the best!
One podcast I have been loving this week has been Romesh Ranganathan’s ‘Hip Hop Saved My Life’. In fact, I’ve listened to all 8 episodes in just a few days and laughed at every one of them.
I made it through Lent which means I have gone mad on chocolate these last few days! Ian bought me a Lindt Easter egg and I have devoured a fair few Mini Eggs too.
I seem to have become mildly obsessed with hot-cross buns this week, having them for breakfast most mornings and even with a slice of bacon. I tried one of Heston’s Cherry Bakewell Hot Cross Buns and Waitrose’s Sticky Toffee Hot Cross Buns too. Both were very tasty but I just don’t think you can beat the original!
On Good Friday, I met up with friends in Bristol for beer and burgers. I had a bacon and peanut butter beef burger which was surprisingly tasty.
I finally had a filling this week on one of my front teeth that had been bothering me for weeks. I also sent off my paperwork for braces along my bottom teeth so no going back now.
I also treated myself to a very indulgent 75-minute full body hot stone massage followed by an eyelash tint and lift this weekend. I was so impressed with the eyelash treatment and you can see from the photos what a difference it has made to my short, straight, blonde lashes!
Finally, in a pointless-but-pretty purchase, I spotted these nail scissors online and just had to buy them.
Kind of fashion-related is how little I have managed to pack for over a week away. I like to leave myself a day to try things on and pack quite carefully and I know I’ll wear everything I’ve brought with me on holiday (my Mum will be so proud!)
So, farewell for a week or so – I’ll be back soon with lots of pics from our Caribbean jaunt!
