    Tits!

    As you’ll know if you’re one of the very kind people who keeps popping back here to check if there’s anything new (and you’re not my Mum, who – let’s face it – is definitely my main reader ;)…), you might have wondered why there was such a quiet period…

    I’ve moved (which was insanely stressful but home finally feels like home – hurray!), but the stress of that induced a bit of a bad mental health spell. I’d just started to get into a regular running pattern with my housemate and then as I was showering, felt something not-quite-right in my right boob (my favourite of the two, in fact!). A little, pea-sized lump. Shit.

    A Month of Memories: April & May

     

     

    These past two months have been one of those weird time vacuums; they seem to have somehow simultaneously dragged by and then flurried past in a whirlwind of moving, ups, downs, laughter, tears and gearing up for a super busy June and July.

    It’s strange because I feel like loads happened, but unusually for me, I haven’t really documented it anywhere – no realms of photos on my phone or chatty blog posts…

    The Grove – London’s Country Estate.

    It’s become a tradition that every year, my Mum, two sisters and I get treated to a spa day for Mum’s birthday. It is literally impossible to co-ordinate our diaries; Mum’s birthday is Boxing Day, and we finally managed to settle on the date of April 22nd.

    The fun even starts at looking at which ones to select – we had a look at lots of different spas, but finally settled on The Grove, London’s Country Estate. Set in 300 acres of Hertfordshire countryside, but only 18 miles outside of London, it was the perfect little 5* spot for us to met up – just us girls, no husbands or kids, so that we could really get down and catch up on all of the gossip.

    Running In Heels: Event Work!

    I’m pretty proud of my career. I quit uni (against most people’s better judgement) after giving it a go for six months. I’d always wanted to work, and I dutifully went to intern for my sister for a week… and didn’t leave for another three years… I’m now a Client Services Director at a Software Company (which is more exciting than it sounds!) but in the last ten years I’ve been working, without doubt my favourite part of the job has been marketing and events.

    A Month of Memories: March

    Though it’s been a strangely uneventful month – it’s actually been an insanely stressful. Work, life, family, friends, love life – it seems that literally something has gone wrong on every feasible cylinder. I should have guessed it might have been a bad month when my Mum and I decided to treat ourselves to a relaxing weekend of wining and reading our books by the fire… Only for a pipe to burst and a huge part of the house be flooded and ruined…

    Easter Bakes

    Easter, for whatever reason, seems to be the perfect time to bake – probably because for many it heralds the end of six weeks ~deprivation~ without chocolate, sugar and all sorts of other things which people give up on the eve of beginning of lent!

    I love the four days of Easter – everything seems a bit more relaxed, spring is in the air, the house is filled with daffodils and now, in later years, my nieces and nephews have come over for an egg hunt.
