So, we spent the last week and a bit camping in Cornwall. We were so excited to pack up the car, set off to the campsite and envisaged long, summer days – bodyboarding on the beach and drinking cocktails as the sun went down. The reality was something quite different. It RAINED. NEARLY.EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.
Not just a bit of rain, it actually stormed, thunder & lightning on 2 days and we woke up one morning with our clothes literally swimming around us in ankle deep water. Not cool. We packed up a day early and literally couldn’t wait to get home to our dry, comfy beds. Holiday fail. Anyway – post to follow on what we did actually get up to while dodging the torrential rain!
The #littleloves linky forced us to find some happiness from the week and I came up with these – Enjoy!
I found a book stall at a local market which was selling all of their new books for just £2 each. Bargain! I picked up this Jodi Picoult book ‘Mercy’ and finished it in just under 2 days. The story follows the court case of a man who killed his wife at her request because she was dying of cancer. A ‘Mercy Killing’ – it was a brilliant read and I even choked back a few tears at how she describes the relationship of these 2 people. A good read, literally couldn’t put it down!
Wi-Fi on the campsite was limited but we managed to stream Netflix and a few YouTube video’s including our faves – The Michalaks. This couple deserve so many more subscribers – they make London life look so flipping cool and their edit’s are AMAZING! I’ve even got Dave hooked on watching their weekly vlog every Sunday. Boom.
Because of the glorious weather we just lived in our hoodies all week. I wish I was typing bikini’s right now.. but hoodies it is. At least we paired our sunglasses with them so it looked semi-hot.
I know, I know – I must have been living under a rock. This song was released in February and I’ve only just added it to my playlist. I love it. I’m pretty much loving a lot of Meghan Trainor at the moment.
Holidays always give you time to sort of reflect on life don’t they – the hustle and bustle of every day all sort of rolls into one and is what we call ‘Life’. It can be exhausting. I find this time of year stupidly overwhelming – running a business with 3 kids home in the summer holidays is no walk in the park.
Especially as the girls are older now, they aren’t entertained by things like softplay, park trips or half an hour smushing playdough into everything. Their needs change and in turn, so do mine. It all takes a little adjusting, a little tweaking and most days I feel like I’m never doing anything right.
Tonight I sat on my bed and forced myself to finish this blog post without getting up to do anything else. I’ve been interrupted countless times but I’ve still refused to get up. I’m not going anywhere until it’s written, tagged, categorised and scheduled for ButWhyMummyWhy’s linky in the morning. I love to write, to take photo’s, to reflect on things we’ve done – I need to do this for me, it makes my soul smile.
Hope you’ve had a great week lovelies,
