Hard to believe that by the time the next holidays come round, we'll be welcoming our new addition to the family! It's true when they say that "time flies when you're having fun!"
So here is my little week in a nutshell...
I am loving my "H" book for my #atozauthors challenge... Laura Hillenbrand is a brilliant writer and I'm totally gripped! Louis Zamperini was certainly a character and I'm loving the fact that its a true story... I'm only three chapters in, but definitely worth a read so far!
I am seriously loving all the drama on TV at the moment. I can't actually think of a time in my life ever where I have been spoilt for choice for such a long length of time - Call the Midwife and The Musketeers may have finished, but we're now watching our way through Poldark and Banished. Banished is a bit more edgy... its the story of the first convicts sent to Australia, but totally gripping and I'm loving the drama! We're a couple of episodes behind the TV, but hoping to catch up in time for next week!
After a fantastic week away in Wales at Word Alive last week, I've been listening to this song this week and loving it more every time I hear it... enjoy!
Wednesday was my Dad's birthday... he's big into travel and has always loved his geography. We're off to Cornwall this summer with my family, and looking forward to exploring our own beautiful country a little bit more. Dad got some bits and bobs for our trip, and I had great fun wrapping them up pretty and going with the "explorer" theme. Is it sad that I enjoy wrapping the presents more than choosing them?!
Blue nail polish. I am disastrous with my nails... one, because I rarely find the time to actually sit down and paint them, and two, because whenever I do, I can guarantee they will be ruined within half an hour. Always. Without exception. Except this time... somehow, they have managed to hold it together (probably because its the holidays so the housework's gone out the window and my hands get a little reprieve!)
In terms of clothes, I've been wearing anything I fit into to be honest... with only eight weeks to go, I'm pretty much out of all the non-maternity gear, so my wardrobe's shrunk considerably. But hey-ho, not long to go now... we're on the home-strait!
We have just loved being outdoors this week. It just feels like it adds an extra room to our house when the kids can be out in the garden all afternoon. When the sun is shining, there is no cajoling or encouraging or urging needed... the want to be out there. As long as possible. They have been playing in the play house, riding their bikes, drawing with street chalk, playing tennis and football and golf, and a whole heap of other things, and they are loving every minute. I am enjoying just sitting and drinking cups of tea in the sunshine and watching them.
I hope you've all had lovely little weeks too! Here's to the next one!
