My Weekly Round Up, Relief

This week has been a funny old week, and a week I stepped into with extreme caution.

With a feeling of fear and a heavy heart. But thankfully on Monday it all started to come good and left many of is with a huge feeling of relief.  Let me tell you I have learnt so much lately watching the people around me. You have to live for today.

Last weekend we enjoyed the snowy landscape and went for a long country walk. There may have been a little country pub in the middle of our walk. But there is nothing better than a long walk on a crisp day is there?

On Wednesday I head to Birmingham with the lovely CaroDonna and Hibs100 for the HomeSense Christmas party.

We decided to make a thing of it and booked a lovely hotel.  Hopefully one day we will be able to laugh about it, but said hotel was somewhat of a disaster.  However when these things happen in life you generally meet some lovely people and the staff at the hotel really tried to help us, sometimes a bad experience is due to circumstances and people can really make a difference if you let them.

The HomeSense Christmas party was a great event, very chilled and the perfect opportunity to meet and catch up with lots of lovely bloggers. It is left me feeling somewhat festive.

Joe had his School Disco this week, and bless him he was so excited. He thought long and hard what to wear, and asked what when we were leaving every 10 minutes until it was time to go. Can you remember that School Disco feeling? The butterflies and excitement that started to build the week before. This week Penguin sent Joe some really cool t-shirts. Now Joe is a real Penguin fan, so was thrilled to wear one of said t-shirts and bless him, felt very cool.

My gin of the week is Brockmans gin

It has such a different taste. Brockmans promise their gin tastes like no other and oh my, they are so right. The list of botanical’s is a surprising one, it is bursting with fruit but it’s not fruit drink. But also had additional flavours such as almonds and liquorice. I had to describe it; I would say every sip is like a fruit explosion it is divine. If you love gin you have to try this.

I am now on catch up mode after a manic week, and am leaving the week with a huge sense of relief; things that have been weighing on my mind are starting to come good.  So this weekend whilst the boys are on the match I plan to have a swim, lunch at the gym and take my laptop to get a bit of work done.

    Joe does look very cool, I hope he had a great time. Oh no what bad luck about the hotel. I’m glad you are starting to feel better about things, I agree Sarah, you do have to live for today and can learn a lot of things from those around us. Have a great Sunday xx

    Glad the week turned out better than you expected, and I’m sure there’s a story in that hotel visit too. Hopefully it’ll make you smile in weeks/months to come. And that gin sounds divine, I think I might need to get myself some. Have a lovely weekend x #wotw

    Oh that gin does sound like one I need to look out for. Smiling at “relief” and gin being in the same post. Glad Joe enjoyed his school disco. Another first to tick off the list. #wotw

    Ah Joe looks lovely in his penguin top, hope he had a very lovely time. Shame about your hotel but glad you had a good time at the HomeSense evening. It looked good from the pics I saw. And doesn’t Pendle hill look so pretty right now? I was surprised it all melted away so quickly though. Maybe we might get proper snow over the holidays?

    Hope you managed to switch off at the gym Sarah after your week. The HomeSense party sounded so good, but what a shame about the hotel. As you know we have just returned from Birmingham and the hotel we stayed in (AC Marriott) was fantastic. Hope Joe had a lovely time at the school disco x

    Sounds like a busy week! I’m such a big believer in living for today and making the most of life but I think I need to take my own advice a little more. You’ve captured some gorgeous shots here Sarah, just beautiful xx

    Thanks for linking up xxx
