weekend #17

What a glorious, spring-filled weekend it was...

My Saturday began as Hubs left the house to go on a Safeguarding course (he's an Assistant Scout Leader); after a spot of breakfast, I spent a couple of hours taking some photos and writing copy for an exciting collaboration with Wayfair which I can't wait to share with you all...

Once Hubs returned home we had a spot of lunch, then headed out to our local bluebell woods for a walk with my parents and Izzy. I have to say, we were a little disappointed because the bluebells looked a little sorry for themselves. They are early this year so we're not sure if the recent frosts have affected them but they didn't look as spectacular as we'd imagined...

After our walk, we all headed back to our house where we spent the evening watching TV, reminiscing about old times and enjoying a delicious Indian takeaway... oh and admiring how beautiful Izzy is ;)

Sunday started with a tidy up, a bit of ironing and breakfast while watching the London Marathon on TV. As Saturday was St George's Day, Tom's Scout group joined up with every other group (Beavers, Cubs, Explorers and Leaders included) from around the area (including Leighton's Beaver group) for a parade through our local villages...
Although the weather wasn't quite as nice as last year, the rain mostly held off and we treated ourselves to a carvery afterwards, before heading to the mother-in-law's for a cuppa and a catch up!

It was a busy but great weekend; I hope you had a great one too :)


  1. sounds like a good weekend. The frost probably did take the pep out of the flowers. It is still pretty though!

  2. Stunning photos - and those woods! Lovely. Looking forward to seeing more from the Wayfair collab :) Jess xx
