A glimpse of spring

10 Mar

Last weekend, we went to Leamington for lunch and a walk around the park to celebrate our 9 year anniversary. There was some beautiful sunshine, finally a hint at springtime…

Birthday fun!

21 Feb

My birthday, in 28 pictures (can you guess how old I am??)

Firstly, it was lovely to be in work for my birthday for a change, it’s usually in half term. I got some sweet cards and gifts, two impromptu outbursts of happy birthday from my class and their lovely company when I opened my presents during lunchtime.

Lovely cards, from friends and family…

After work, we visited our friend and her gorgeous girls and I was treated to more birthday singing and a homemade cake…

We spent the evening with two more of my favourite people, who brought gorgeous gifts…

The next day was spent with family, it is my sister’s birthday five days before mine so celebrations are usually combined…

On Sunday, I went to a fantastic cinema in Birmingham (the electric) with my lovely friend, to watch Brief Encounter. This brought about some (rather unnecessary) black and white instagramming!

I do adore this film, a great end to my birthday weekend!

This week…

3 Feb

Here are a few things I’ve enjoyed this week…

The Killers video for Miss Atomic Bomb.

This sweet little animation from Disney (complete with a classically disneyfied lady)

Finally, I showed this short Pixar animation at school as part of our circle time talk about bullying. It got such a laugh at the end and is quite powerful in its own way.

New year, new ritual

6 Jan

There are few things I dislike more than the end of Christmas, specifically taking down the Christmas tree.
So, this year I’ve decided on a new ritual…to decorate the house with fresh flowers once the tree goes.
It’s certainly brightened up the rooms after clearing all the decorations.

Autumn engagement party

5 Nov

Here are a couple of snaps from our engagement party. Also, I’m trying out mobile blogging so fingers crossed it works.

The cake bunting for this carrot cake was bought from a lovely Etsy seller, A Fete Beckons, and the autumnal, tissue paper bunting from another called Shelley. Shelley actually sent me a free string of bunting which helped to decorate both out downstairs rooms. We usually do Halloween decorations but thought we should be a little more grown up this year 😉

It was so lovely to celebrate with all our family and friends!
