I took a short break last week whilst it was half term and we were having lots of fun moving house…but I’m back this with with lots of little loves after we have settled into our new home and discovered lots of thing to enjoy about being in a sleek new build (which is definitely something I never thought I would say!)
Can you believe I packed all of my books and I haven’t gotten around to unpacking them yet…even James was surprised and thought that they would be the first thing I got sorted. So I haven’t read anything this week unless you count contracts and inventories but that’s not very exciting is it?!
Oh so many new series now we have our internet back up and running. We watch the pilot episode of Elementary and loved it so that’s definitely a new favourite; I think Jonny Lee Miller is fabulous even if he is a little Cumberbatch-esque, then The Last Kingdom which started a few weeks ago and I have downloaded the first episode of Cuffs but haven’t tried that out yet.
I also finally got around to watching the last episode of Poldark (I know…) and sobbed my heart out. WHAT a sad final episode and what a cheeky cliffhanger to leave us on.
I have been loving my burgundy trousers which I bought a few weeks ago. They are officially jeggings I think which I never imagined I’d go for but they are so comfy. It’s a shame they are such an obvious colour as I can’t get away with wearing them too many days in the week!
I am totally loving Adele’s new song at the moment. I often have one song which inspires me when I’m writing and I’m not sure exactly what it is but I can just sense it’s going to be my song for an upcoming project. Some sort of tragic love affair perhaps?!
One of the great things about moving was that I unearthed all my recipe books which have been buried at the back of the Welsh Dresser for 2 or 3 years. They are now sitting in full view and it inspired me to try something new. My sister bought me a Hairy Bikers recipe book a while back and I was flicking through and came across Pan Haggerty so we gave that a go. It got the thumbs up from everyone which is always good.
James also did some dessert making with the kid this week. It was a simple affair: crushed biscuit, whipped cream and strawberries but the finished product was delicious. It was sort of like a dissembled scone.
There’s something about moving into a new house which feels like a fresh start and I am really hopeful that this will be a home we can stay in for quite a number of years. I am feeling reinvigorated to really make a go of the things on my dream list and not keep putting things off until ‘a better time’ … I know it sounds a bit cheesy but it’s true. Watch this space!
Have a great week all.
