This week felt much better, despite being on the busy side I have managed to fit running, yoga and riding in along with some walks with Dougal and time at the farm which I think has massively contributed to feeling a lot more positive, or it might be solely down to my three day working week, who knows? Regardless it flew by it a daze of stress, laughter and happiness so this is my weekly roundup.
Catherine and Beth’s wedding
I don’t know where to start on this, I am also always conscious of mentioning anyone else’s wedding on here as it wasn’t my day to talk about. So I am just going to keep it short. On Saturday I was maid of honour for my one of my favourite people and longest friends Catherine who married her wife Beth on Saturday in the most amazing ceremonies. The day was fantastic filled with so much love, food, prosecco, cake, dancing and laughter. I feel so honoured to have been part of the day and really wish we could do it all over again. For all the bridesmaid they had personalised prints made by a friend called Mark Sanderson, I am still amazed by how good they all were. I love mine so much, I smile every time I see it, it sums up so much of our friendship and I can’t wait to get it up on the wall.
This is not the final copy but pretty much there. They had also been beautifully framed for us all too.
Ikea Haul and lounge revamp
I don’t know how I did it but on Bank holiday Monday I managed to convince my Dad to take me to Ikea. I needed a new mirror and living in the Midlands the delivery charges are obscene, the mirror was only £40 and the delivery is £35 it makes zero sense. We made the trip over to Coventry which is probably the closest IKEA to us and I made a number of lovely home purchases. I still have a long list of things I need for the house but this really made a big difference and I am so happy to have a big mirror back in the house after my sister took the others, some cosy lamps for the winter and my dining table is properly dressed now with the cutest pink vase. Hoping to go back October /November time for some more home furnishings, that is if my bed ever arrives from Made.
eBay clear out
I am obsessed with selling things on eBay at moment, literally, nothing is safe in my house. Sure it can be a bit of effort and sometimes things don’t sell or don’t sell for what I would have hoped but some do take you by surprise and not only has it cleared out a lot of old stuff but it has given me some extra spare change which is not something I will grumble about. It has been a great way to start my autumn/ winter wardrobe.
Hidden city London trail
For our Dad’s Christmas present last year we purchased the Moriarty game by Hidden city London on his friend’s recommendation. We booked it for this weekend which was a lucky fluke because the weather was fantastic. The game includes 14 clues which are sent to your phone when you get to the first pub. To gain access to the next clue you have to get the correct answer to the previous clue. The trail took us all around Marylebone, Oxford Street and Mayfair, into pubs, shops, museums and art galleries. It was so much fun and nice for my sisters, myself and my Dad to work them out altogether. Some were so difficult others made us feel as though we were Sherlock ourselves. I was looking forward to it but I didn’t expect it to be as good as it was. I would really recommend for a day out in London.
