I know I have used Manic before, but honestly? That was before I experience this week. The boys were off; I expected a pottering chill week. In reality I was a little chilled in the planning and may have accepted and arranged 5 or 10 too many wonderful things to do.
You know that moment when you write yourself a list and think arghhhhhh! What have I done, am I mad? Then you think well you only live once and I am here to have fun. And work or course, so bring the week on.
So that is exactly what I did, I put my head down and ploughed though. I have done a bit of baking, been on a trip to London, done hair, caught up with friends, a few home decor projects and packed for a weekend away and a holiday. But do you know what? Looking back this week has been blooming manic, but so much fun and full of creativity. I am one lucky gal.
As I sit here with a glass of wine I am nearly there. The sun has been shining all week, we have a lovely weekend ahead of us and my job list is ever so smaller that it was 5 days ago. Although Joe’s hair is hideous, every time I look at him I groan! That will have to be my first job in the morning. To cut that hair!
I have had lots and lots of lovely parcels this week, many that have been nice surprises
Like this Bailey’s Iced Coffee Cookie Shots. They are delicious although I couldn’t eat the entire cookie. But oooh Iced Coffee Bailey is amazing. Check out the London Coffee Festival to give it a try. Its 6th till the 9th April and looks amazing.
I have been doing lots of baking and putting my new oven through its paces and the more I use it, the more I love it. This week I made Marshmallow Cup Cakes. They went down a storm the boys loved them.
And then on Thursday I head down to London and the Hello Fresh HQ with some of my favourite bloggers to try out the new Hello Fresh Go range. And cook in their ever so cool kitchen. I love the whole day and just nipping to London for the day is such an amazing treat.
Although getting there was a bit hairy as when I arrived at the station there was a huge sign saying this is a request only station! You had to flag the train down to stop. I kid you not! I was terrified. Anyhow lucky enough someone else arrived at the station who informed me the train always stopped in the mornings phew. But have you ever heard such a thing? No, me neither?
I have also fit in some lovely country walks and lots of fresh air, although sadly not many chances to nip to the gym. But I plan to squeeze in some early morning yoga and beach walks in Greece next week.
Oh and a big thank you to the lovely people of Co-Op for these lovely eggs. I have grand plans for these this weekend. Check my Insta Stories out tomorrow to see what for. But I know 2 boys that will be very happy. And a couple of teens that although they act cool, wont say no a a chocolate egg.
Told you it was manic! But you only live once.
Have a fab week whatever you are up to, and will catch up next week from Greece
