I’d love to say I’ve been up to lots of stuff, but not really! I worked on Saturday as we had a workshop to put on, and then saw a whole lot of Sarah, Carl and Cecelia, which was nice to hang out with them. We went to the Ale house for drinks Saturday night, and had a tapas feast Sunday, where I had the best whisky cake, I could drink the sauce it came with on it’s own.
That little baby pictured up there is my cousin’s newest addition to their family, little miss Avery! They are in Washington so I don’t get to see them very often, but I can’t wait to meet her. My Mom is flying out in a couple weeks to go see everyone, and to say I’m jealous would be an understatement. I’ll have to settle for all the pictures she’s been sending me. Probably my biggest excitement this week has been getting a new phone! I’ve never been one to need the latest phones, I tend to go by the “if it’s not broke why fix it/replace it” philosophy. I had my iPhone 4 since the day I moved to England, four and a half years ago. It was starting to freeze up though, so it was time for a new one. I got a shiny new silver 6 in the post on Monday and have been loving it.
I don’t take a lot of selfies, but I took this one with my new phone to send to my mom so she could see how much brighter I’ve gone with my hair, the camera on the 6 is a lot truer to colour than my old one! Possibly because it’s a million times better all around. I also snagged these popsicle molds at the pound shop of all places! I love blending up smoothies and freezing them for hot days. There’s some pretty awesome sounding cocktail popsicle recipes floating around I might try too. If you’ve got any good ones, send them my way.
Not pictured (yet!) are some shiny gold leggings I purchased to make a costume with, we are having a superhero and villains party on Saturday night at our house. Any reason for a party with friends, dressing up is just a bonus.
Does anyone have any fun plans this weekend?
