There’s no place like home (No I’m not talking about dorothy…)

…and there’s no yellow brick road – I know, what a shame!

My blog posts have been a bit here and there, but I have been super busy. With holiday days falling over a few weeks making it feel like I’ve been away more than I have, and Alex’s birthday I have just had so many plans…and obviously with being busy comes the need for beauty sleep too!

Recently was another part of my holiday for the year. We were meant to be going camping – yes camping, not glamping…I was going to go the whole hog, no hairdryer, straighteners, just us and our tent and gas stove – Could have been interesting! But due to the weather being so unpredictable, yellow rain warnings in place for where we were planning on going, and how far it is to just go for a night if the weather was bad, it wasn’t worth it. So I spent my lovely long weekend at home with my parents at home in the Midlands.

I feel like I managed to fit in so much, but still had a nice relaxing time chilling and catching up with everyone. I managed to see my friend from home, caught up with my brother and sister, I saw more of my family -my grandparents from both sides, we went for a HUGE carvery at a Crown Carveries, watched We’re the Millers one evening, went on a long dog walk in the woods, I cooked for everyone another evening and I helped do some gardening – novelty thing, I haven’t had a garden in the different places I’ve lived for 4 years!

Some sneaky shots of our long walk through the woods – love these pics…



I even got to try my Grampy’s homemade Jam – I’ve never had rhubarb Jam before, or one with vanilla.


My weekend was just truly great! I really enjoyed myself, and loved being able to just spend time with mum and dad and not having to worry about anything, or having to cram things in to one day! I still wasn’t quite ready to come back πŸ˜›

I’m back and I’m already looking in my diary and thinking what else I can fit in to my summer, so much I want to do.Β Last weekend was the first weekend of making the most of the rest of summer (will be posting very soon about my Wembley visit!) and the plans are going to keep coming, so I should have lots to tell you all about!


I hope you’re all making the most of your summers too!

      Thanks so much Hun! I love writing, and it’s fab hearing people are enjoying it too! It was pretty good, very vanilla and sweet, but a nice change to other jams. It made me want to make my own jam now πŸ˜›

      I hope everything is going well with you!
