Lately













We have had a lovely week. Tuesday, i went a visited my sister (and shall be again today!). I love being able to drive to see her. We are best friends and it is great to get to spend the day with her and just chat nonsense and act silly all day. The boy and i also got to go out on a dinner date. We haven't been out, just the two of us, since June and it was very much needed. I drove us to Buddies and we stayed for hours just talking about our future plans and it reminded me of when we would stay awake all night in the first few months of our relationship, talking about our future and getting to know each other inside out! We are not going to leave it too long next time and hope to go out next month. I want to make sure we do something each month.

Yesterday, was my niece's 4th birthday. Elle went to the cinema with her cousin and then everyone came back here for a little while so Mia could join in the celebrations and then i am taking her over t to spend the day as she is too young to sit for a few hours in a cinema right now. Talking about birthdays, it is only three weeks until Mia's 3rd birthday!!! I am in disbelief and cannot believe she will be three!

The weather is slowly picking up. I have some photo shoots planned with the girls and i am excited for the apple trees in the orchard near us to bloom with blossom so we can visit for photos and to pick blossom to make crowns. We are very much ready for spring to hurry up!

    Your record room is amazing by the way - since we moved house I have finally been able to bring mine down from storage and put shelves up for them - still a work in progress. Date nights are amazing :)
