Things I’ve loved this week.
As I write this post I realise that I’m writing it on it’s actual day of publishing. Which is most unusual as I’m usually late. Unlike last week, the sun has treated us and really lifted the mood. So, really it has been a great week. A short week. A week filled with #pewithjoe and successful home schooling. George has had a great week.
That said as the working day finished yesterday I couldn’t help but feel a little sad. Sad that we aren’t spending the weekend with friends drinking Gin and eating burgers. Which is why I’m sitting here looking back at the things I’ve loved this week, feeling grateful that we are safe. So, grab a coffee or as it’s Friday and a bank holiday a glass of wine and read on…
Watching Normal People
A friend recommended it. She was write. I binge watched 12 whole episodes in two evenings. It’s a beautiful love story, with some incredible acting and story lines. Real life issues. Worries. Have you seen it?
This dress is definitely my dress for summer. The one I’ll wear all throughout 2020. I just love the style, the cut, the colour, how it swooshes in the breeze. The Gloria Dress from Weekday was definitely a brilliant buy.
Riding our bikes
We took the opportunity on Sunday afternoon to go out on our bikes. Our first family bike ride of 2020. Gosh did Mr H take us on a tough route. I’m afraid to admit that I am not very fit this year. Last year I wouldn’t have struggled, this bank was very tough. I had to walk up it in parts, the boys didn’t struggle one bit. What was lovely was hearing George scream ‘I’m on top of the world’ when we rode down a hill. He had a great day and a new found sense of confidence for riding on the roads.
My magazine delivery
Arriving at the end of a month, with the prospect of a new month ahead it’s always a treat to receive my Red Mag through the letterbox. I’m yet to read it, but I’m hoping to find a few moments to digest it, flick through the pages, admire the fashion in the garden this weekend with a coffee. I love the idea of easy chic style.
They didn’t last long but they looked and smelt devine. I’ve always admire them blooming in the tree but never had them dotted around the house. As I dropped my in-laws shopping with them on Friday, Grandad had picked them from the garden for me. A really lovely gesture and one that made me smile the whole journey home.
And that’s My Friday Favourites. You can look at last week’s here. Have a wonderful long weekend.
