Let's do this, shall we?!
Matt and I aren't what you would call your normal Husband and Wife combo I suppose. While others may be snuggling down, all cosy to watch their favourite soaps... On Friday evening, we were listening to spotify and came across S Club 7's- Bring it all back on one of the playlists.... I know right, archive!!!! Anyway, I immediately jumped up and declared that this was one of the first songs that I auditioned for a part at the theatre to. "Skip it back Matt, skip it back.... I think I can remember the routine"... So, he did and I DID!!! I then spent the next twenty minutes teaching my wonderful husband the routine (Sorry Matt, ha ha ha). It was fun. We laughed. We smiled.
Then yesterday morning, Matt whipped out his old school roller blades (because him and his friend have decided to bring it back) and whizz around our kitchen and dining room. Of course, even though my feet are more used to a good old fashioned roller boot, I decided to also give it a go. These bad boys were tricky but again... It was fun. We laughed. We smiled.
As we are still unable to let Puddle and Forrest explore the great outdoors yet... their second injections are this Thursday so not long now... we have let them have full reign over our conservatory. We have put some bits and bobs in there to make it a bit more adventurous for them, including Ellenah's play pram... and oh, they love it to cuddle up in together.
On Thursday, my beautiful niece went of to collect her GCSE results. Considering how well she handled herself when taking her GCSE's, everyone was already so proud of her. She has always been a smart girl, since she was little... so we were all hoping her results reflected all of her hard word over the duration of her school career so far. Don't get me wrong, GCSE results are not what defines a person and plenty of people have done wonderful things without them and without academics on their side... that has to be said. However, I am so proud to say that she did A-Mazing. She came away with 7A*'s, 7A's, 1B and 1C for her AS level History.... Boom!!!! Such great news for her. She is like waaaaaaaaay more clever than me ha ha.
Yesterday we went off to a BBQ and I decided to whip out my new M.A.C purchase and go for a bold lip. I posted this photo on Instagram and my personal Facebook and it got a little love.
The colour is actually called Morange which is more orange than red like it may show up as in the picture... I liked it and felt really good wearing it. We were there for about four hours, eating and drinking and it stayed on the whole time. I did not reapply once. Low maintenance products are what I like most. I would rather spend my time talking than worrying what my face is doing.
This past week, I have fallen in love with a beautiful blog that I and many others follow... Little Winter. It is so cute. It is a wonderful fashion, foodie, lifestyle mix and it is definitely worth checking out (Here if you have time now). I love love love it.
I hope the week ahead is wonderful to you and you spot all of the fabulous things that you could be smiling about. I would love to hear about them if you would like to share.
Lots of Love
