This week I have been
Getting back into things.
I think it’s the same for all of us right?
Its ok. I’m holding onto this time last week for a few more days yet. I figure I can say it until Monday. We had such a great end to the summer holidays. George spent 9 whole days swimming in the sea, playing beach ball games and cards. Living his best life. The sun shone and it was a lovely blend of family time, adventures and finding time to read a book.
How was the end of the holidays for you? I heard so many saying the rain spoiled things whereas I think here in the Midlands we missed it, well for the most part or it was days when George was with Nanny and Granddad. So we were lucky that he didn’t want to get out as they were rest days from all the sports clubs.
And so, this week I have been:
Looking back at photos from Spain
I won’t lie I am missing the sunshine, holding my boy, having uninterrupted family days as well as all the views. So for now or at least until we start to plan next years adventures I am going to keep scrolling back through my camera roll. Day dreaming and losing myself in happy hour cocktails and paella. Dreaming of days with my boys, with this one and all his salty kisses and the best beach hair.
Getting back into things
Yep, that’s it for sure. Getting back into work, Year 4 and a new teacher for George, back to classes and routine. I think I’m still struggling with the routine but I’m sure by this weekend I’ll be sorted. George has definitely felt tired from getting back into things, today (Thursday) he’s enjoyed just doing nothing after School until his swimming lesson. This week I have been going to bed early. Dare I say I’m looking forward to a lazy morning on Sunday.
Can you believe I actually read a book on holiday. Nearly finished it actually. Just a few chapters left. Mr H actually picked this out for me when we went to Florida but with how busy those days were I didn’t manage to read more than a chapter.
Ive really enjoyed it. In some ways it felt like an autobiography. It was lovely to get to know Fearne more. To understand how she’s struggled with anxiety and depression, how she manages it. Her outlook on situations which I can relate to. Her tips and helpful solutions. I think for anyone struggling or finding some things a little overwhelming this is a great book. A really good read. Uplifting and definitely makes you think Happy.
The bright pink just felt too much when I popped my normal clothes on. So I had a quick change. For the first time I’ve gone with a peachy shade. Hopefully I don’t regret it. New day is always a favourite. A little monthly treat I couldn’t go without these days. Do you have something you look forward to each month?
Thinking about my autumn wardrobe
I do love the shops at this time of year. I love seeing all the new styles coming in. Although I can never shop as much as I’d like to. The trick is to have a good wardrobe declutter, put away the summer bits which aren’t transitional pieces, keep back everything that is. So for me that’s midi and maxi dresses, my midi skirts, blazers and tees. Denim skirts to wear with tights. Although I refuse to wear tights until November!
Now it’s time to think about which autumnal outfits you enjoyed wearing last year, I keep an album on my camera roll of outfits I’ve loved wearing. There’s always one you forget. And what you’re left with is the gaps – I’m thinking jumpers, mostly light weight for this time of year – H&M is my go to. Also think about what colours you want to add – I’m loving green, pink and neutral tones this year.
And that’s my this week I have been update. Have a great week loves x x
