I’ve had a hectic week off work as we’ve been celebrating Jenson’s second birthday! I’m now officially the mother of a two year old. May the tantrums begin (continue…). But Jenson hasn’t been the only one to receive some epic stuff over the last few days. Here’s a look at our week.
Read: As I’ve not been at work I’ve not had time to pick up a book but I have been reading Jenson’s lovely birthday cards. One especially fabulous mum nearly made me cry with what she wrote in hers. Nearly…
Watched: I really wanted to be able to write The Handmaid’s Tale here but I haven’t had time to see the first episode yet. Like 13 Reasons Why, it’s not appropriate viewing for Jenson, which means I can’t really watch it as he’s drifting off – then I don’t have time to watch it while he’s sleeping because I’m catching up on housework or blogging. Plus, y’know, I like sleep too! I’m writing this post at 11.30pm and it’s my turn for a lie-in in the morning so, if he doesn’t wake up and come in our bed beforehand, maybe I can sneak in the pilot tonight. Wish me luck! Of course I could just watch more Gilmore Girls and fall asleep after five minutes…
Heard: I’ve been trying to catch up on Sarah Tasker’s Hashtag Authentic but there are so many and it’s another thing I don’t have the time for. I can’t have a podcast on in the background while I’m writing because I can’t concentrate and miss bits. Fortunately laundry is mind-numbingly dull so I managed to catch a couple of oldies earlier in the week. I’ve decided to skip straight to titles that really interest me rather than try and fit them all in so I’ve gone for ‘is blogging still relevant?’ and ‘what brands look for in influencers’. Super helpful!
Made: I’m really stretching here as Luke does 99.9% of the cooking and I’m not especially crafty so I’m gonna shout out the epic sausage sandwiches I made for brunch the other day. Go me!
Wore: Once you switch to flip flops you can never go back (until the winter) so it takes me a while to fully commit – but commit I have! Problem is I’m still trying to break in a pair from two summers ago so it’s not going very well.
And lastly: I received some very epic post from Abrams + Chronicle yesterday and can’t wait to share more info in future review posts. In the meantime, here’s a teaser. Ain’t they pretty?
Have a lovely weekend! We’re off to our last birthday party of the season tomorrow. I can’t believe all the babies are now two!
