Welcome to May everyone, where has the time gone?! I'm so excited for May as it means a trip to Amsterdam, visits to lovely friends and much merriment around London. Not to mention (hopefully) brilliant weather and TWO bank holidays. Oh I do love a bank holiday (don't ask me how I'll cope without any until August once May disappears)!
Before I launch myself into May with abandon it's time to reflect on the last month of madness. April really was an epic month for me and I LOVED every minute of it. Not only did I celebrate my 29th (eek) birthday but I also headed to sunnier climbs with a trip to Portugal. Plus I got to spend a couple of weekends back at the parentals for family time and countryside fun. And then there was that thing called Easter and all of the chocolate I could ever dream of. It really was a fairly epic month! So let's dive into my mini recap...
Haribo treats / new bedding / birthday flowers
Treating myself to a night of movies and Haribo, a winning combination. I also welcomed spring in with beautiful bedding, don't you just love the yellow and white combo. I swear I'm not really a yellow fan normally, but this bedding has potentially converted me... As it was my birthday, did I mention that? I was treated to some beautiful purple tulips - so pretty and just what was needed when I returned to work post holiday!
Big Ben / A Southbank mural / The London Eye
As the weather got nicer I was able to spend more time in London town enjoying the sites. I've been waxing lyrical about the joys of living in London recently and these three pictures sum up why it's so awesome to be a Londoner. I love wandering round the Southbank and happening across awesome things like this black and white mural or The Eye from an odd perspective and touring the Houses of Parliament was one of my highlights of the year so far!
I always enjoy my trips to Portugal and consider myself very lucky to be able to visit so often and feel so at home there. This trip was no different and I had a brilliant time touring Tavira, sunbathing, catching up with family and friends, practising my Bananagram skills and just generally relaxing.
The other things making my heart sing and keeping me grinning from ear to ear in April were the above. I love nothing more than coffee (hot or cold) and it really is ridiculous how a cup makes me so happy! On top of that I've been getting my sew on with my new sewing machine - how brilliant is this chevron pattern. I want to make all of the things with it! Finally I went bowling for the first time in about three years the other week and it was totally awesome, I really must go more often (and not just for the arty farty Instagram shots!).
What about you, what have you been up to and how did April treat you? I hope it was kind to you.
