I'm all over the place these days, one minute I'm all excited and enthusiastic with all kinds of plans, the next minute I've crashed and I'm creeping around like a sloth trying not to expend any energy. Being enthusiastic is great, but even though lacking energy is hard, it means you get to take a time out and cuddle on the sofa with the dog while watching rubbish tv. I'm trying to be all about making lemonade these days when life gives me lemons! Although I would much rather have an iced tea.
And I have a lot to be happy about these days, some good things have happened and I have some good things to look forward to...
:: Adam and I found our wedding rings! I didn't expect to get so happy about this, but when we first knew these rings were right for us it was such a wonderful feeling. We're getting them made by a jewelry maker in one of the Hackney markets and I know it's cliche, but I love that we're getting them made local. We have been so happy in Hackney and I love that we will always have a reminder of that.
:: It's my mum's birthday this weekend and we are going to do so much celebrating. She's coming to London and we have reservations at Duck & Waffle which I know is meant to be amazing. We also want to try and have drinks at the shard on Saturday night, which may turn out to be a bonkers idea but we'll see - has anyone ever tried to have drinks at the shard on a Saturday night?
:: Yellow peonies. Did you know you could get yellow peonies? This was new to me, I was so shocked. Almost as shocked as I was the first time I saw an Okapi and realised there was a mammal in the world I hadn't heard of. Ok that's a peculiar analogy but it was such a delightful surprise!
:: I got to celebrate with Michelle last Friday at her wedding! It was such a wonderful evening and she looked so beautiful. If you would have told me when I started blogging a couple of years ago that I would meet so many amazing people, and that they would like me enough to invite me to one of the most joyous celebrations of their life, I would not have believed you.
:: And my new design! I love it so much, I am eternally grateful to Bobbi for all her hard work. Thank you for all your kind words about it and about the film I put up yesterday - it was my first attempt at stop motion and I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out!
