the weekend that was.
it’s been one of those 'i’m on an emotional rollercoaster ride that i’d rather sit out’ kinda weekends. i was feeling torn in two directions with my roomie’s 30th promising fun social times on saturday night and then the idea of spending mother’s day with a mama not currently in the country on the sunday. as seen in my precious post, i spent saturday baking what can only be described as my biggest and best baking endeavour, ever. it all went marvelously to plan and i felt like i’d given birth to a rainbow baby, right there, on the dancefloor (some squeals but no pain thankfully!) ha. a fun night did indeed follow. sunday morning brought a headache and a favourite little lady’s 3rd birthday so the naughty shorts party dress, pink cardi and shoes to match were on (and paracetamol/mug of tea quickly consumed) and i was ready for a morning of pass the parcel, pink cupcake eating and hanging with my mini bff in the glorious sunshine. spending time with my yummy mummy friends was exactly what i needed on my minus mama company mothering sunday. my silly sad face soon crept in so a trip to a yet undiscovered antique store seemed to be the only remedy. an hour’s wander, a couple of treats and a skype date with mum later and i seemed to be back on track. the week ahead promises some dinner dates with favourites and sees me beginning my artwork for an early september exhibition. the focus will be good for me as europe begins to creep ever closer. the long overdue encounter with my nearest and dearest seems to be fuelling this emotional ride as of late, so it’s head down and smile on for the lead up to what i know will be the highlight of my year. i'm remembering today just how fortunate my life is (complete with an amazing mama, however far away) and how i cannot be anything but grateful right now…the photos below only remind me of that.
