Hello and how has your week been? Mine has been a week of catching up and organisation. That includes catching up with the gym. I hadn’t been for 3 weeks arghh. Spinning on Tuesday morning was fine. And was a little stressed due to a certain stroppy teen so my anger carried me through that lesson like a breeze ha ha.
However I am feeling a little achy after yoga yesterday. I love yoga and had missed it so much, but found the lesson a bit of a challenge after not attending for 4 weeks. I forgot how much I adore the relaxation part, but had to keep stopping myself from drifting off, as I was conscious I was snoring. And today I can really feel it!
Lots of laughter, as last weekend we went to a celebration of a really good friend. Not only was she celebrating a birthday but also a achieving a huge goal. It was lovely to be there celebrating alongside wonderful friends and hoorah for glorious weather. Although it was one of those days that maybe a little too much gin may have been consumed.
A delicious lavender G&T, I am not a fan of sweet gin at all so was a little concerned I wouldn’t like this. However my love of lavender cocktail and downright nosiness inspired me to try it anyway. Mason’s Dry Yorkshire Gin, Lavender Edition was a pleasant surprise. I love it, it has a real taste of Lavender but with notes of anise and pin gives it a drier and fresher flavour.
A bit of a cheat as this is from a couple of weeks ago. However this week I shared some pictures from my trip to Greece and my new summer dresses from Next, which I just love. Getting the chance to wear summer dresses is wonderful isn’t it? I just love this time of year and holidays in the sun.
This fab post by the lovely Suzanne about being 40, it’s a great read. Being 40 is no big deal and for me it has been amazing. I have been braver and had so much fun. And was 40 when I started my blog, one of the best career decisions I have ever made. The funny thing is I had my very own post in the working and published it yesterday, its from a slightly different angle but still demonstrates why age is just a number. Catch my post here. And remember the only way to do any age is to rock it.
At the moment we are loving Harry Potter on Saturday mornings, which means I get nothing done but I LOVE Harry Potter. I am a total Potter geek so love snuggling up with Joe and a coffee to watch a movie. Honestly I could never get bored with the films and have also read all the books. And was one of those people who bought each book on the day it was released. I cried when I first visited Warner Brother Studio’s. I KNOW A TOTAL GEEK, but what’s not to love.
Today we are off for a family meal, and trying to organise cupboards a little at home. So have loads to keep us busy. And next week is a huge week as Joe leaves primary school. I am not going to lie I am dreading it. I cried buckets at Jacks leavers’ ceremony and have already shed a tear when I heard Joe practicing the leavers’ song. Wish me luck I think I am going to need it.
Have a lovely week whatever you are up to
