I'm feeling very much ready for a break. We've done lots of new and exciting things this year but if you know me, you'll know i'm a creature of habit and I can't stay away from my favourite destinations for long! So we've booked a few nights away at our favourite hotel in my favourite place. It'll be so good to have a few days together without the stresses of everyday life. Only a few weeks to wait now.... It certainly feels like it has been a while!
Our little lady has gone through some kind of growth spurt over the past few weeks. She's shot up in height, she's more conversational, she's eating everything in sight and she's also insistent on doing absolutely e v e r y t h i n g by herself. It's testing, it's tiring (exhausting) but completely rewarding seeing her grow and change, seemingly by the day. She's the absolute best, I've never known a love like it!
I've found some really nice things whilst out browsing in our local charity shops this week. I always love to pop in and take a quick look and we never seem to leave empty handed, usually picking up a few books and toys for Miss E. And it's always good to find stuff for myself too! I stumbled across a Rachel Stamp CD the other day and pounced on it like a crazy lady.... they were one of my favourite bands many years ago so it's lovely to now have a few of their albums padding out our music collection again.
.... She's ace, you know! Her facial expressions kill me, she looks so pissed off 98% of the time. But she's so squidgy and plays with us like she's still a puppy. I once read that pugs are the clowns of the dog world and it's so true! She's absolutely bonkers.
Forever one of my favourite positive, uplifting instagram accounts (if you're not following then get on it, right now!). These words really got me this week....
