Happy Monday everyone – it’s the start of a new week and I, for one, have no idea what to do with myself after how busy last week was!
Last week started off quite chill by not having much to do other than attend my usual gym classes on Monday and Tuesday morning – with an added shopping trip into town with my mum on the Monday afternoon.
Wednesday was slightly more hectic and nerve inducing as I went to college for an interview for the fashion retail and enterprise foundation course. I had prepared a mood board with an upcoming trend and with summer on the horizon, I opted for a boho chic trend and stated how it develops from year to year. I’m so incredibly proud to say I received an UNCONDITIONAL OFFER ON THE SPOT! I’m so so happy as this means I can officially cross off something on my 101 in 1001 list!!
Bounce to Thursday and my boyfriend, James, surprises me with a 2 night stay in luxury spa and hotel, Slaley Hall. The room was lovely, the food absolutely amazing and for once the British weather was beautiful which made our stay even better. On Friday we even had a little trip out to Hexham for some lunch at the Little Angel’s Cafè and a wander around the Sele. Our time at Slaley Hall was absolutely magical and perfect for our first little getaway together.
Saturday morning we arrived back in Morpeth just in time for a quick shower and change before heading off to my Gran and Grandad’s golden wedding anniversary (you have have seen my previous post about the place cards I had written out for the day!) It was great being able to celebrate their 50 years of marriage around family and friends with James – though my dad may have talked his ear off a tad.
Now, finally, to Sunday. Mother’s Day. Another beautifully sunny and warm day, perfect for our little walk along the river before heading to our favourite Italians for lunch! I love my mum and think you shouldn’t just wait until one day of the year to show her how much she means to me but still, you have to join in with the tradition of spoiling her on this day!
As you can see, I’ve had quite a busy week! Thank goodness I had decided to take some holiday from work or I don’t know how on earth I’d of fit everything in! However, after such a fabulous week comes the week after.
This week is the last week of my six week weight loss challenge – and as it stands I’m not looking forward to seeing the results. After all the meals out last week I am dreading to think what the scales will say but I have a week to try and turn it all around!
Fingers crossed and time for lots of soup and gym classes! As I’ve said, a lot can happen in a week!
