Life Lately|| Happy Things

It’s been a while since I’ve found time to do a “life lately” post. After Monday being a Bank Holiday and then taking off Tuesday and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday have seemed exceptionally long so far! I guess that’s always what happens after coming back from holiday though.

I attended a Lakeland event in preparation for some exciting summertime cooking! It’s going to be spiralised courgetti and homemade frozen yogurt around these parts this summer. (The hashtag is #lakelandhomemadesummer if you’d like to join in!) We’ve already had courgetti (or zoodles, if you like) twice this week.

Aside from attending the fabulous Joules AW preview, I also attended the Triumph AW preview. I had my first proper bra fitting in almost a decade. I can confirm that I am one of those many, many, many women wearing the wrong sized bra.

I have family outside of Paris and there was a family reunion of sorts in Paris on Tuesday evening. Sam and I were both lucky enough to get work off so that we could go and that I could introduce Sam to that side of the family. Including people I hadn’t seen since 2007! And then we had some time alone together in Paris. 

Paris. Full stop. What’s not to love about it?

Katy came over for dinner last weekend, and it was a) lovely of her to make the epic journey across London and b) nice to celebrate the Royal Baby with friends and gossiping over the name choice.  

I got to meet Jacyln and Angela in person at the London Coffee Festival. It was wonderful getting to put some real life faces to hilarious tweets and clever posts. 

I met some other lovely bloggers at an afternoon tea at Sofitel in the Rose Lounge. Their current afternoon tea celebrated the Chelsea Flower Show and you can have the special tea throughout May! I especially loved the sandwiches and scones. And the pastries were almost too pretty to eat. You can seem them in the collage above.

Last Friday I had a weird/exciting acting job. I worked alongside someone I’d never met before but it turns out we had mutual friends. The acting world is small. 

I’ve gotten stuck into some terrifying and gruesome tv lately. Between Game of Thrones, Enfield Haunting and Penny Dreadful, it’s a surprise I can ever sleep! 

This weekend I’m going to Grand Designs Live and I’m very excited about it.

What are your weekend plans?
