I’ve had a simply lovely week. I feel so fortunate that my life has been fairly upbeat and blissful for the past month or so. I’m usually filled with anxiety and get stressed incredibly easy, so this has been a most welcome change. May it stay this way always!
>>>Our Sunday paddle in the sea at Broadstairs. The weather was so nice that it really did feel like we were abroad on some beachy holiday. Just putting my feet in the sea made me feel rejuvenated.
>>> Dreamland was as dreamy (pun intended) as I hoped it would be. The highlight of our time there was going down the massive slide with all the kids. Obviously. We acted like two big kids, including getting sugar highs after eating far too much cotton candy.
>>> I discovered a new favourite Prosecco.
>>>We had a great dinner with Sam’s mom on Tuesday and stuffed ourselves with curry take-away.
>>>I’m a huge fan of Daphne duMaurier’s “Rebecca”. I even based a solo dance on it during grad school. I finally picked up her “Jamaica Inn” and loved it. With reservation – I was incredibly disappointed with the very last chapter, but other than that I was riveted.
>>> On Thursday, I got a haircut at George Northwood and suffice to say it was one of the best haircut experiences I’ve ever had in my life. I used to be really loyal to the salon I went to in the States, but in England I’ve never gone to the same place more than twice. I’ve tried so many. But they’ve made a loyal customer out of me and they can take all my money. And even if I get tired of the chop and want to go back to my old ways, hair grows back.
>>> I’m so excited that Bake Off is just around the corner. Having gotten to the interview stage this year, I was even more excited than usual to peruse the list of the new bake off contestants!
>>> I know it’s silly, and I’m most definitely not the target audience, but I’m so glad that “Canal Journeys” is back for a new season. I have so much love for Pru.
>>>Home-made cold brewed coffee. Enough said.
>>> Sam has just unveiled his new wedding photography website SR Taylor Photography and he just photographed the dreamiest wedding!
What’s been the highlight of your week?
