This week was going to be a catch up week for me
Ha ha not a blooming chance. It has been one of those weeks where I have run in circles chasing my tail. Have I achieved anything? Not really, I have only made it to the gym once too. Yet I don’t feel like I have stopped, how on earth does that happen?
I forgot to share this last week but check out my mug the lovely Karen bought for me. It’s so cool! I have no idea where she got it from but I love it.
Being busy generally comes with some lovely happy moments and through the chaos there has been a few of those. We have been looking at high schools again this week, I think Joe is getting nearer to making his decision. We decided we would give him a few options to choose from and let him make the final choice.
After researching the local schools, we have visited the schools we feel are options for Joe. It’s been interesting watching him tour the schools; he has taken it very seriously. And surprisingly has not been swayed by what his friends think. Now all we have to do is wait and hope we get the school he wants.
Autumn is officially here
Haven’t the nights drawn in early this week? I love this time of year. It feels so cozy when its dark outside we have no streetlights so its complete darkness apart from the twinkling lights on the hills in the distance. The log burner is now in use and I have new winter PJs.
I had never heard of CyberJammies until last week and I love them. I have a real thing for PJs and CyberJammies have such a great selector of PJs for all the family, you can even mix and match. And they come in this gorgeous box; it really feels like getting a present.
Having Friends To Stay
One of my best friends came to stay this week for a catch up. The gorgeous Donna from Like Love Do nipped up from Essex for a little stay. We have been friends for over 20 years; our families have grown up together to the point that they feel more like family than friends. We had a lovely night sipping wine and chatting and even did a little blogging. Then spent the next morning at the gym working off the great food and wine in the gym.
And did I mention last week I have discovered gin! OMG all those years thinking I didn’t like it, and I LOVE it. I am a total novice, I had no ideas how many flavours and varieties there are. I won’t lie; I have been like a child in a sweet shop ha ha. So I am going to document my journey of Gin discovery and try a new gin a week.
This week I have started with a gorgeous gin. It’s a Warner Edwards Rhubarb Gin. Oh it is so so delicious. I love the sweetness of it. Who would have though Rhubarb and Gin would go, but it so does. If you want to try it out check out 31 Dover they have lots of different flavours all in sample size perfect for just trying.
Now I have to try to get the house straight! We have friends visiting for dinner tonight so I am looking forward to an evening of laughter and great food. That’s once I decide what I am going to cook for dinner.
Have a fab week
