Good evening all!
It has been another busy but lovely week at home and we finally had some sun! I even managed to do a little sun bathing! I have a lot planned for this coming week and am working on loads of new posts! I am trying to start posting more frequently and regularly from now on so keep an eye out!
What has been making me smile this week?…
– Full rainbows in the sky after a rainy afternoon – Trip to the zoo, seeing sea lions kiss, lions hugging, feeding an elephant and a giraffe – Walks in the countryside – Playing pooh sticks in the River Stour with my friends (who remembers this game?) – Seeing the utterly amazing ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night time‘ at the Gielgud theatre in London – Spontaneous invitation to a Golden wedding anniversary celebration – Late night baths and listening to Classic FM – Staying up late with my Grandma and laughing our heads off – And my cousin giving birth to a beautiful baby boy!! Lots to celebrate this week! –
Hope you all have a great week!
I have decided to start a ‘Things I love’ feature, which will be a regular Sunday post! It is such an easy way to appreciate and be thankful for the small things in life and remember all the little things from the past week!
So without further ado, Things I love this week…
– Being home with my family – Catching up with family and friends – Endless cups of tea and biscuits – Relaxing bubble baths – Being woken up by my dog – Popping candy ice cream – Seeing a clear sky of stars at night – Dinner with friends – Poached egg on toast with crushed avocado and chorizo – Singing at the top of my voice with my Mum as we drive along with the roof down – Long train journeys, visiting my cousin and the chance to read George Orwell’s Animal Farm in one day – Skype dates with my friend in Milan –
What are you thankful for this week?
I took this today in Norfolk, it was a beautiful day in the countryside!
Have a great week ahead everyone!
Happy Sunday everyone!
Finally the weather here is warming up, the flowers are out, the sun is shinning and you can’t help but have a smile on your face! Spring always makes me feel happy (especially as it means Summer is on the way!) and what better way to enjoy a Spring Sunday than with a stroll in the park!?
I met my friend this afternoon to do just that in Milan’s Parco Sempione, which covers (as I learnt today) 40 hectares from Castello Sforzesco to the Arco della Pace. Apparently it was designed in the style of traditional romantic English parks – which really surprised us – and features watercourses, paths and small rises! I personally love the park as it offers up some excellent people watching opportunities, which is one of my favourite things to do on a lazy weekend! Milan is abundant with interesting characters to spy on, especially when the sun comes out! Hehe!
After a leisurely walk around, we sat down in the sun on Corso Sempione, to enjoy a refreshing Aperol Spritz. This is a typical Italian aperitif, particularly popular in the North of the country and is made using 2 parts Aperol (a rather bitter liqueur), 3 parts Prosecco and 1 part Soda! Delicious!
Absolutely love this! Genius idea to bring your own hammock to the park!
Hello there! Look at this little fellow…he has got the right idea, chilling in the sun!
We are definitely going to try and make this a new Sunday ritual! Have a great week everybody!
