Happy Friday everyone – I’m facing a very long weekend of work and Sam is away with his brothers on a semi-stag do (bachelor party). I’ve frequently said that summer is the busiest time of year with work and luckily, I only have two weeks left of pulling my hair out 24-7 stress, and then it will ease up a bit. (Just in time for family and friends to start arriving in London.)
10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week:
>>> Sam and I managed to have our first bbq of the summer on Sunday. Bring on more weather like that please! I give burgers, corn-on-the-cob, and bell peppers on the grill a big thumbs up.
>>> I tried a scotch egg that I didn’t hate.
>>> I’d gotten so good with my running routine this year and then I’ve been rubbish the past month and a half. I’ve been getting back into it but still feeling pretty “ugh” about the whole thing. I’m having to start back at 30 minutes but I know I can get that length up again because I’ve done it once already.
>>> Sam and I organised the wedding ceremony (the readings, confirmations, etc) and I got a bit teary reading over them!
>>> We got to spend time with all Sam’s nieces and nephews this weekend. Spending an afternoon with 4 kiddos under 10 was hectic but excellent fun.
>>> Has anyone else been watching ‘Versailles’? What are your thoughts? I haven’t quite made up my mind yet…
>>> I had an excellent evening on Tuesday at Barrio East with Wexas Travel. You may have seen my snapchats. (I’m rhymeandribbons on Snapchat if you want to follow along.) I basically had to be pried off the chips and salsa. We learned to mix several drinks but my favourite was the raspberry margarita.
>>> Finally eating some damn banana bread.
>>>’Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ had its first preview this week and the feedback is amazing. Which makes me super excited to see it. In 8 months… because our tickets are for February 2017. It’ll be a bit bittersweet watching it because *secret reveal* Sam was seen multiple times to understudy for Harry but he says the script is magical (pun intended).
>>> I treated myself to a new dress from Miss Patina because I felt like I deserved a treat, and I was missing some of the dresses I used to browse with regularity from ModCloth.
And an extra link for good measure:
>>> After reading Biden’s response to Brock Turner’s victim, I felt a rush of affection and respect towards Biden that I’d never felt before. I encourage everyone to read his passionate letter. (Assuming you read her incredibly moving statement first.)
What did you get up to this week?
