Happy Monday again everyone! I can’t get over how fast 2018 is already going, but I’m also excited to get stuck into the rest of the year and all the fun things I’ve got planned.
This week has had many ups and downs in my work life, but as always, there have also been things that have made me smile along the way.
1. Catching Up With My Parents
My parents are lucky enough to have booked a January holiday, so this week I made sure I saw them before they went away. We hadn’t caught up much about the wedding, so it was nice to talk to them about the progress we’ve made and get their opinion on some of the decisions we have coming up.
2. Ski Trip
Our company do an annual ski trip every year, and this year they announced it on Friday as being the last ever one. We’ll be heading to Val Thorens in France in March, and I’m so excited because I’ve never been skiing before and the pictures look amazing.
On Saturday morning, I met some of my favourite blogging girls for Brunch at Evelyn’s in Manchester. I’ve wanted to try their brunch for ages as I’ve heard amazing things and this was the best opportunity to catch up with everyone after Christmas. We were also saying goodbye to the beautiful Faye who is off on her travels next week.
4. Saturday Evening In
Our lovely friend Emily and her husband invited us round for dinner on Saturday evening as we’re all trying to be good with money. As I’m still being veggie, they made a chickpea and lentil curry with homemade onion bhajis. It was all delicious and gave me some inspiration to branch out with new ingredients. They also had all their wedding photos printed off so it was lovely to go through them and relive the day.
5. Sausage Dog Cuddles
I had some parcels to drop round to a friend from work on Friday evening. I was more than happy to do so because it meant I got to see her sausage dog, Bruce, who I haven’t seen for a couple of months. It definitely perked me up after an incredibly busy week and he was so adorable.
6. Exciting Opportunities
This week I’ve had some exciting opportunities come through my inbox, which I’ll be a very happy bunny if they all go ahead as planned. One of the best things about having this blog is the amazing brands that I get to work with that I will always be grateful for.
7. Sunday Well Spent
This Sunday we had no plans which is unexpected for us, so we took the chance to go on a country drive down all of the back lanes, get organised for the week ahead and cook a veggie toad in the hole from scratch. A very relaxing end to the week.
8. Working From Home
A couple of days this week I’ve been working from home, which has meant that I’ve finally got to use our home office which we’ve been slowly renovating for the past few months. I always find that I get so much done when I’m there and it was nice to be in my own little space that I’ve been putting together.
