I went out for tapas with my friend this evening and the food was so good I ordered the same again to take home for Nic’s dinner! Came home to one happy chappy, and I got to share his churros!
Paint samples have gone up on the bathroom wall today! We’re still a while away from it all kicking off but choosing our wall paint is one of the last things we have to do which is exciting! It’s making it feel very real.
We always have lots of butterflies visit our garden in the summer. They go absolutely wild for the mint bushes we have! It’s always fun when they turn up as it feels so summery, and makes me happy we’ve let our garden go a bit “wild” the bugs and birds are loving it!
This evening we celebrated Corinne’s birthday and it was so much fun!! Nic and I had an absolute ball and ended up staying until after 1am which is a complete novelty for us in the last 18 months. We laughed, drank, played games and just generally had a wonderful time.
Nic and I went on a lovely walk after work today. A big loop around our local area with snacking blackberries along the way from various bramble bushes! Such a treat.
I’m working from home all this week as I don’t have any plans in town. It’s nice as I’m appreciating it more now I’ve been in a couple times recently. I’ve got used to the lie in life!
This morning we went to B&Q to pay for our new bathroom!! It’s officially begun as we even left with a stack of tiles! The proper work won’t begin until October but it’s still so very exciting as it’s the last bit of the house that really needs some TLC.
Apart from that I was just very sleepy today, even managing to nap at lunchtime (working from home benefits!).
Bit of an admin day for us today. Headed to B&Q first thing to chose the final bits for our new bathroom which is very exciting! Then it was home just in time to miss the biblical level downpour that happened over London. I got to chill out in our conservatory and just listen to the pitter patter of it all which was lovely and calming. As if it’s already Monday tomorrow…
I made friends with this lovely lady today at Moira’s birthday party! She made for an excellent leg warmer once the sun set (the dog, not Moira).
It was a lovely evening with our wonderful friends. We ate amazing Canadian themed BBQ food and nattered for hours with everyone while the sun unexpectedly shone down (it was forecast storms!).
The temperature has finally dropped a bit in London. This morning’s run was much more pleasant as a result. Then at lunch Nic and I went on a lovely walk around the park, still in just t-shirts but not panting away from the heat! Storms are coming tomorrow… Hopefully they’ll be a bit impressive!
Another sunny day in London! Nic and I went on a lunchtime jaunt on the bikes which was lovely. Then after work I went for a massage! So a pretty good day all around I must say.
