Hey y’all! I’m excited to be linking up to Morgana’s Little Loves again this year, even though I think I’m definitely more than a little creative with my responses to the set headings!
I so enjoyed the Christmas break, you can read about that here, but I wouldn’t like it to last forever, and I’m glad to be returning to some sense of normality – whatever that may be! Actually, I’m pretty excited about this year as I have lots of plans, including things which have become far from ‘normal’ for me. Find out more in this week’s Little Loves:
This week I received some interesting post – an invitation to a wedding party. On Valentines day nonetheless! Now… Mr C and I haven’t been out since Aaron came along, and probably for a considerable period before that. But, providing we can get a babysitter, we are planning to go! I might even have a proper ‘wore’ picture for you after that. No promises, but maybe!
I have watched so much t.v. lately, including a documentary about Necker Island a.k.a. Richard Branson’s Island. At 20-30k for a 7 night stay, the television screen is the closest I am ever likely to get to that part of the world! We also watched Flight starring Denzel Washington. The ratings were really good, and I enjoyed the story, though it did drag on a little bit – or perhaps I just felt that way as it ran past my bedtime – old age is a terrible thing!
I was having a bit of a clear out of my book collection when I came across a book I had bought a few years ago called Learn to Play the Keyboard. So I thought I should start making some use of my piano, and try to learn a tune or two. So mostly I have been listening to myself repeating the same thing over and over on the piano (which seriously needs a tune – up!) I think I can just about manage Oh When The Saints, but I don’t think your ears are ready for it yet!
I ‘wore’ some skinny jeans and boots for about 30 seconds in the changing rooms in Asda. I didn’t buy them, but I am planning to go shopping and find some that suit/fit me. Believe it or not, I don’t own a single pair of skinny jeans! I am totally a bootcut girl, but I have decided that I really need to try to move with the times! I know, I’m a few years late, but, better late than never eh! And some lovely handcream I received as a gift. There is also a lovely orange blossom scent in the di palomo range, which I love in the summer months. If you see this range, you should definitely try it.
I am super excited about this one… drum roll please… I made a reservation for a flight to Newcastle – all by myself!!! Yip I am going to visit a very dear friend, who has asked me to be her bridesmaid later in the year! Obviously this may require few visits over the course year, and I’m not sure how Mr C is going to cope. But do you know what – I refuse to feel guilty (I actually do feel guilty but logically I totally don’t think I should). I have barely had a pee by myself in the past four years, and those who have know me a long time will know I used to be a very independent girl! If Mr C copes fine while I spend the whole time fretting about whether everyone will survive ,I will not be very pleased with myself – but I don’t think that is going to happen!
Have you got any exciting plans for 2015?
