As this post goes live I will be boarding a plane to Tuscany with a gorgeous group of Travel Bloggers. We are off to check out the very beautiful Country Relais and Spa Le Capanne and what Tuscany has to offer.
I am so giddy about visiting Pisa, Sienna and Florence, they are places I have not visited yet and am dying to walk those Italian streets with my camera. There is something so stunning about Italy isn’t there? And sometimes it’s just the little things that catch my eye.
It’s been a busy week preparing and organising but phew, thanks to the wonder of BA Air miles I bagged a last-minute flight from Manchester to Heathrow to save me half a day of driving. If you love travelling air miles really are the best thing ever.
On Sunday we had such a wonderfully chilled day celebrating Mothers Day. I awoke to Egg Benedict and was thoroughly spoilt by the boys with cards, chocolates and a Liz Earl goody bag. Followed by a long walk at Townley Park with a coffee, whilst we watched Joe ride his skateboard and flew his drone. We did invite Jack but there was no way he was getting up to go for a walk! I spent the afternoon chilling and singing along to Oliver(one of my fave films) whilst Chris rustled up roast lamb. It was the perfect chilled family day.
Eleanor Oliphant is really growing on me, I find myself smiling at her comments and the way she says what everybody else thinks. I love the part when she had the makeover in the department store, ha ha.
On Tuesday I watched The Sound of Music at the Palace Theatre omg it was incredible, if you love musical theatre then it’s a must. I am a huge fan of the sound of music and I adored the show. I honestly can’t fault it and the casts voices were just incredible. No, more that incredible, I actually can’t put it into words.
My next show is Hairspray I am so excited as I have never seen the show or the film, but love the music; it looks like such a happy fun show to see. So am looking forward to a real party atmosphere.
My new Liz Earl products, working alongside my serum they are working wonders. The set has an eye cream, which is something I really needed. I had really let it slip with my skin care regime
Lots of plans, I have been busy packing and organising for Tuscany, we have friends visiting at Easter, plus some of our closest friends are getting married and I have an exciting mini cruise in April. We have a mega busy couple of months but whats new in the crazy Christie household.
And a wonderful discovery in Manchester, have you tried the Indian Tiffin Rooms? It’s a street food restaurant. We stumbled across it on Tuesday night and it was so good. Definitely one to check out if you visit Manchester.
Have a fab weekend whatever you are up too, and fingers crossed for a little Italian Sunshine.
