Weekend Roundup!

I woke up Saturday after a fun night in with the girls on Friday, the cupcakes and cocktails went down a storm and it was really nice to see everyone and have a giggle. There was lots of wedding talk as there was 2 brides over and it was funny to see how different they both are! Here are a few snippets from Friday Night…

 

I waited for Matt to come home from work on Saturday morning, I admit after clearing up, I spent most of the morning watching re-runs of The Bill. Personally I think its still good all these years on, Matt however just thinks I am sad! He picked me up and I dropped off some Party Lite goodies to a valued customer and then headed on a search to do some Strawberry Picking! The farm we went to had an offer on, basically you could fill a small punnet as much as you could for £3 or a large one for £8, we opted for the smaller punnet and headed off, there were so many little ones out with their parents, it made us both very nostalgic remembering when we were their age picking strawberries with our families….

 

 

We spent Saturday evening with my cousin and her fiance, just chilling out having a BBQ. Then Sunday I headed upto Guildford with my Friend Hayley and the rest of Team Bride for a catch up and a mooch round the shops. It was nice to spend some time with them all as we dont have much chance to all meet up, so getting the little ones in some bridesmaid dresses in Debenhams was great and they both looked so pretty…..

Sunday evening Hayley and her Fiance Lee headed over and we had a Cheese & Crackers evening watching the last Top Gear as we currently know it. We had a great time giggling, catching up and just generally feeding our faces!

what a feast!

Today, I am off work. I booked a holiday day to make the most of a quiet house whilst my family are away. I have also been feeling rather negative lately and the fact that the sun is out today and I have started working on my new hobby (will reveal all soon), I feel really refreshed and happy again!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend too and got up to lots of mischief!

Summer Wishes!

Sat at work the other day, my thoughts turned to summer and what mischief I can get myself into! I am a big winter lover, but there is something about clear blue skies and the sun shining that just puts a smile on my face!

So I got my thinking cap on and browsed through Pinterest of some Summer Bucket List’s and got some ideas together!

Have A Picnic

I am a big foodie as you all well know and I am quite lucky to live near the beach, a national forest and lots of lovely open space so why not pack up some food and head out for the day! So what do you pack for a picnic? What are your favourite things? For me, its tuna mayo & cucumber sandwiches or maybe some cheese and pickle sandwiches. Mix it up with some vegetable sticks and dips, even some humus might do the trick! You can’t beat some marshmallow & strawberry kebabs either, oooh or even some chocolate dipped strawberries! Play a few games of Frisbee or maybe just laze about and catch some rays, definitely a picnic on the cards for the summer!

Strawberry Picking

When I was younger I knew summer had arrived when my mum and dad would take me to the strawberry fields and we would pick a couple of punnets and come home and me and dad would always have them with condensed milk! Last year, I didn’t get round to picking any strawberries as we were away for 2 weeks and I had broken my foot! This year however, I will definitely be going to pick some strawberries, maybe even take our nieces!

Enjoy An Evening Drinking In The Sun

For those of you that don’t know, our house has always been an open house and quite often will hold impromptu evenings in front of the fire in the summer drinking and snacking and just having a laugh. They are my favourite evenings, when it’s just random and chucked together and they often tend to be the best evenings too, so although it’s on my idea list, I know it will happen at some point anyway!

Of course, those are just little ideas of things that I would like to do, there are loads of other things you can get up to. You could visit the zoo, have a water fight, host a BBQ, play rounder’s, go crabbing! The list is just endless, why not tell me what some of your favourite things to do in the summer are, you might even inspire me to do something different!
