Life Lately - March 2016



Valentines flowers from my sweetheart

As it's been a while I thought i'd do a little catch up post of sorts. I can't believe it is almost mid-March. On one hand I am so grateful that we are almost at the end of the winter darkness. Leaving work in the dark has been horrible, but each day it is slowly getting better. I'm looking forward to seeing the sun setting as we pass the fields on future drives home. So dreamy! 

On the other hand I just want time to slooow down. We have 204 days until we get married and although that seems a lot, I know it will just fly by. There is still a lot to be done, i'm hoping to get organised so that the last few months before the big day will be enjoyable and not stressful. 

Love buying this Tulip selection. Perfect colours : )
We are really enjoying living in our house. For those who are fairly new around here, we moved into our first house last December. It's been so nice to have our own space, to cook what we want when we want and to just enjoy it finally after years of saving hard for it. There have been lots of cosy evenings with yummy food, candles & fairy lights and a TV marathon or two (We started watching Luther...so good!). The house isn't completely decorated yet but we are slowly getting there.

We love candles!


Cosy nights in
We are hoping to get started in the garden this month. There isn't much going on out there at the moment, I potted some Tulip bulbs in planters back in the Autumn which should be coming up soon but that's about it.  I'm envisioning some flower beds, a new lawn and hopefully a new patio. Some of it may have to wait till next year but we will definitely be planting flowers this year.

So that's pretty much all our news. With Easter just around the corner I'm itching to get the decorations out and start baking. As i'm *trying* to eat well I'm just going to have to make sure I share with the family!

  1. It's great to hear from you and I'm pleased that you have settled into your first new home so well.
    The wedding will be here before you know it, time just whizzes by doesn't it.
    Have you seen any photos of what the garden looked like over the summer? It makes you wonder what surprises there may be popping up, always quite exciting that first year. I remember squealing during our first year, when a load of peonies began growing from the ground.
    Enjoy it my lovely, you've both worked so hard towards it and enjoy every ounce of happiness you get x x x

    1. Aww thanks Gem. We are very happy here, still feels a bit like a dream (apart from all the housework - HA!). The garden is pretty lifeless, there isn't much at all apart from some patchy grass, hoping for lots of blooms this Summer.

    2. Yes, housework can be a bit of a drag but you'll get used to it. It's the mess I can't stand!
      I'm sure the garden will look beautiful x x
