First day back at work after five off and my brain hurts: I’m done with adulting for today. Instead I’m sitting here scoffing down frozen pizza (spinach and ricotta, I’m not an animal) and watching Death Becomes Her whilst mulling over the merry minutiae of the week that just was.
In no particular order:
We spent just one night in St Ives this week and can confirm that it’s exactly as beautiful as everyone will tell you it is. We mooched, we ate, we conquered. And we hung out on the beach obvs. More on St Ives later in the week.Spa-ing partners. Husband and I started our few days off with a spa day at Islington. Aside from the classic semi-nudity-around-strangers thing that a spa induces (never make eye contact) we had a really lovely relaxing day. My book has inappropriate wet patches from where it unceremoniously landed on my chest when I nodded off.
R snuck back for a visit this week too to grace us with her now 21 year old presence-how do I have a twenty one year old stepchild????? Her special request? A trip to the moors with yours truly. A morning spent in the great outdoors with one of my favourite humans was spiffing (although I did nearly Pete better than actual Pete! That hair though…)
For the first time in an age all four of us sat down together on Friday night. It’s been too long since my lovely step girlies were in the same place at the same time and although we just binge watched some crappy TV and K snoozed her socks off, it was a lovely thing to have them in the lounge.
A good roasting. After a walk up a monstrous hill out of St Ives, we found ourselves in a pub which served the mightiest roast dinner I’ve had in yonks. Something fennelly on the carrots, ginormous yorkshire puds and a little pot of cheesy leeks that should come with a drool warning. You can’t beat a good roast, especially when you didnt have to faff about with the timings yourself. Winning.
And yes, that is my dogs’ head on the table because I have no boundaries.
Short and sweet from me this week, what were your best bits?
