The real thing....

Firstly, I'd like to apoligise for my absence the last two weeks. I've really lacked on my post's as I have been so busy. The last post was all about how I felt a little out of my depth, so I've been focusing on how I can change that.  I've been working alot lately, which I love, but it takes its toll. This weekend was a perfect ending to a hectic week and I feel fantastic now! I'm ready for anything this week throws at me. Above all, I feel so blessed and full of love. I love my better half even more every day and my friends and family never fail to cheer me up! And my mum is back! We made up for her absence by a shopping trip. It was more than successful.

Shrug- Monsoon.
Satchel- My grandmothers.
Dress- Fat face.
Sandals- Kurt Geiger.

On friday, the beau and I had a romantic meal at home, followed by going to see one of my favourite bands. It was honestly the best gig I have ever been to. It was very small and the lead singer came out into the crowd and I met her after the gig! She and the rest of the band were so lovely and we even got a peek of the tour bus and a photo!
To top it all off, I ran into an old friend who I hadn't seen in years! We had a few beers and a good catch up.

On Saturday, We went to the beach. Not only am I tanned, but we saw 'punch and Judy' (google it if your not english,) which was a firm tradiotion as a child. My Grandfather and I would get there early just to sit at the front. I haven't watched it since I was small and thought of him the whole time.

Sunday, my best friend came to stay for the night. It was a wild night as always. We spent Monday eating, watching sex and the city and then braved the rain for sushi. I had such a wonderful four days and so sad its over!

Oh well back to work it is! 

Hope you've all had a great weekend!
