Ooh it’s been a hot one today and as I write this my sun-screened arms are sticking to the table and I’m looking forward to a Sunday night bath. It feels like we’ve spent loads of time outdoors this week; playing swing ball in the back garden after school and eating lots of ice-cream (on separate days and from different purveyors) so that in itself is full of win. We’ve also had a few high temperatures, sleepless nights and tantrums but that’s life. A few other things that are part of the adventure too:
Having some ‘me time’ in the salon and getting my hair highlighted. I have dark blonde, oily hair that needs any help it can get so a bit of bleach goes a long way. Happy hair makes all the difference to my day.
Drinking gin & tonics with my good friend Katie, sitting on the grass in the middle of town (like a couple of teenagers) watching the world go by (and putting it to rights).
Finding a beauty product that lives up to all the hype. The POREfessional primer by Benefit is the only make-up I’ve ever used that properly sorts out my (increasingly) visible pores. I don’t mind having pores by the way, I just don’t want to be constantly reminded of them.
A visit from Greig’s sister which means the kids got to play with their lovely auntie (a rarity as she normally lives in NZ) and we had an excuse to go out for a yummy brunch at the weekend to treat her.
Crafting up a storm in preparation for a mammoth party weekend in our house (we have 3 birthdays in the family next week).
Receiving a bunch of hand-picked flowers from Greig that were beautifully simple and just what I like. Love him!
