Rosie & Tom’s wedding

Yesterday Nick & I were extremely privileged to attend the wedding of Rosie & Tom. I met Rosie a few years ago through blogging and we’ve been good friends ever since and luckily for us, Nick & Tom get on really well too. I honestly can’t say enough good things about those two. I just love them so much.

The wedding was absolutely stunning. Every tiny little detail was completely perfect and Rosie and Tom couldn’t have looked happier. I won’t ramble on too much, I’ll let the pictures do the talking but I just want to say an enormous thank you to Rosie & Tom for having us, we had an absolute blast and we hope you have the most incredible, envy-inducing honeymoon you lucky little sausages.

Easter weekend

Hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter weekend! Wasn’t the weather fabulous on Monday!

(Apologies for the photo quality – these are all iPhone snaps!)

We didn’t do a great deal on Friday & Saturday as Nick was still being a busy beaver working away on the house (which is coming on slowly but very nicely now!)

He decided to have Sunday off (mainly because B&Q was shut!) so we took Huxley and his scooter to the park and scooted off to feed the ducks. He was pretty excited about this as he’s been reading his new Bing book non-stop for weeks and spent the whole time going ‘wak wak wak’. He didn’t quite get the concept of the bread though and kept eating it.

RiverWhen we got home, Elsie and Hadley turned up and Neile had planned an Easter egg hunt around the house for all the kids. They had loads of fun running around and filling their little baskets and playing with bubbles. I’m not sure Huxley knew exactly what he was doing and I don’t think he twigged that he could eat the things he was picking up but he was happy to toddle about following Elsie and copying what she was doing.

On Monday Nick went back to work at the house and my friends Lauren and Ben and their little girl Lexi came to pick me up in the their car (yes, I was very squished in the back with two car seats!) and we headed for the beach. We scoffed some chips and drove around for quite a while looking for a parking space. We were just about to give up and go home when we found a spot literally right on the beach. Winner!

Huxley loved the beach as much as ever. I was worried he’d have forgotten about it or got scared of the sand and sea since we moved away but he was desperate to go in the sea and threw a massive paddy when I stopped him paddling (his little toes were frozen!).

Spring lust list

Hasn’t the weather just been absolutely glorious lately? It’s made me realise just how much I dislike winter. It’s okay when it first begins and you get all excited about Pinterest pictures of snow and snuggly jumpers and pumpkin-spiced everything but once Christmas is done and dusted I want it to be spring straight away.

Thank goodness we’re out the other side and the clocks have changed! The lighter evenings really make all the difference. It’s made doing the house up a little easier too as it would have been miserable to have been working in the dark so much and there’s no way I’d have been as enthusiastic at the prospect of gardening in the frost.

The one thing I’m missing out on a little bit this year is that because of the house we’ve got no spare money at all. This means that any thoughts of shopping have to be put to the very back of my mind and I’ve been trying to avoid flicking through magazines or going anywhere near the shops in order to avoid temptation.

On top of this, because our house is down an un-made road, we’ve started to consider how much of a beating our poor car is going to get and have started talking about investing in a sturdier vehicle. I don’t think we really count as having an ‘average family car‘* – we probably don’t get caught in traffic for that long as we both work from home and Nick would definitely protest to saying that we get lost twice a year in the car!

So, to keep my urges at bay, I’ve been doing some pretend shopping on Polyvore and have collated my favourites pieces from the high street this season. You never know, maybe I’ll be able to snap them up second-hand on eBay next year!
