Happy first Friday of February everyone! I don’t mind February the same way I hate January, because even though the weather is usually worse it also means that spring is just around the corner. Last night there was even some lingering daylight around until 4:45pm which is a really positive step in the right direction. More so than the cold, it’s the lack of sun that I just can’t bear it.
>>> We are back from honeymoon (boo!) but we had the most amazing time. We’re in the process of going through all our photos right now and it was so amazing that it feels surreal!
>>> I am the owner of two tickets to “Hamilton” for January 2018. It’s ages away, but they are still in the first 10 weeks of its run, so hurray! I absolutely cannot wait.
>>> You know when bloggers are like “OMG something so amazing happened to me, but LOL I can’t talk about it yet.” Well sorry to be obnoxious, but that happened to me twice lately. I just can’t wait to share later down the line. (There’s no baby announcement so don’t even bother speculating.)
>>> Our wedding photographer, Neil, wrote a really amazing blog post about our wedding on his site.
>>> Sam’s driving lessons are going really well. I can’t wait to be chauffeured around.
>>> I feed and stroked an elephant. This really falls into the honeymoon category but…. YAY!
>>> I’ve caught up on all my emails, completed 4 loads of laundry, ticked off lots of things from my “to do” list and did a massive grocery shopping run. Some true #adulting got down this week.
>>> I got so much reading done on our holiday that I might actually make my reading goal on Goodreads this year. Maybe. It’s only February though so who knows what the rest of the year holds.
>>> I’ve been having a clear out of clothes and accessories that I don’t wear and been donating some and selling others on eBay. Hurray for extra cash!
>>> This week has been awash in some terrible news but I’ve loved reading posts like Nadine’s and Nicole’s. But the protest in London was great and it was awesome seeing so many younger people caring about politics. Plus last night was #harrypotterbooknight, Beyonce is pregnant with twins, Prince Charles has been classily throwing shade at Trump.
What are your plans for the weekend? I’m hoping to crack on with some Valentine’s themed macarons, but we’ll see. Jet lag naps might beat out baking.
