I am writing my ‘Things I Love Sundays’ feature a day late this week, as I had no laptop at the weekend to write on! But I am back now and very happy as today is my birthday! Last week was my last full week at home in England before I head back to Milan this week and get back to work. It has really been a very wonderful summer, spent with all my family and friends and I will be sad to leave…however I am looking forward to seeing the sun again and wearing summer clothes! England has been far too cold! So here is my last list of things I have loved this week at home…
– Seeing my cousin and her husband and meeting their new baby boy – Cuddles with baby Atticus! – Lunch out with my Mum and Dad – Peaceful walks with my dog in the countryside and picking blackberries along the way! – Taking my Grandma out for afternoon tea, she is one of the funniest people I know – My Mum throwing an afternoon tea for my birthday with my dear friends Kate and Chris (it has been a week of endless afternoon teas! – I am not complaining though!) – Kate and Chris making me the most insane chocolate, fudge, more chocolate…more fudge, chocolate buttons birthday cake…with a pink candelabra cake decoration! It was amazing! – Fresh flowers – A crazy Sunday with my whole family, who are all mad and yet another afternoon tea! – My cousin and I blowing bubbles in the garden and the dog going mad for them! –
It has been a slightly mad week really! I am definitely going to miss everyone when I am back at work…still Christmas isn’t that far away is it!?!
I am working on lots of posts and hoping to get into a good routine of writing and posting when I am settled back in Milan…including a recap of suggestions so far, for my ‘Read Around the World’ feature, new posts on Milan and more on the Expo!
Hope you all have a great week!
