This is a family portrait from our Friday night. I can’t imagine ever wanting to go out of an evening again, when evenings spent at home are as happy and cosy as this. Ted’s developed this really wonderful new habit of curling up alongside me when I lay on the floor watching telly (anyone else do that?) and it’s so lovely to be able to have an actual chilled out cuddle with him. Fellow spaniel owners will know that’s a pretty rare thing, since spaniels are usually about as relaxed and cuddly as a toddler who’s just washed down a pack of Haribo with a can of Red Bull. It’s pretty much my favourite way to spend each evening. And Jason’s more than happy to have the sofa all to himself, so it suits us all just fine ;)
On Saturday I drove to my cousin’s flat in Crawley, and *didn’t* get lost and drive round the whole m25 like I have done before! I did have two satnavs running at the same time to get me there (fo’ real) but it did the trick, and that’s what matters right? Other far less successful things that happened on the journey? On my way there I stopped for petrol and filled up, then realised I’d forgotten my purse when I got to the counter to pay. Then whilst hunting frantically for said purse, I dropped my phone on the floor (for the third time this year!) and the button fell off. But! I know my card numbers off by heart (#asignishoponlinetoomuch) so was able to input my card details manually, and my phone button is now almost good as new with a little help from a strip of sellotape. Oh my. What a modern day success story…
Want to see some photos from Emily’s hen do? Well, you’re in luck!
^^ Bunga Bunga, Battersea. ^^
Just take a look at that bellini. I have precisely zero idea what was in it, but it was good stuff. Actually, everything at Bunga Bunga was pretty incredible! Best olives I’ve eaten in a long long time. And Jason and I order olives pretty much everywhere we go, so that’s saying something!
*Now, let’s cover Sunday!*
^^This jumper ^^ came out of winter storage, and got worn with relish on Sunday afternoon. So cosy, it should be illegal. I spent the afternoon catching up on the Forty Days of Dating experiment, and especially enjoyed reading all the responses some design students gave to Tim and Jessica’s question ‘Why are you single/Why are you in a relationship?’. I turned to Jase and said to him ‘Jase, if someone asked you why you’re in a relationship, what would you say?’.
And without even missing a beat, he said ‘Because I’m hungry.’ Ha!
He was joking, we promise ;) It’s an interesting question though, don’t you think? Both Jason and I said that our true answer would be that we’re in a relationship because we’re as necessary and important to one another other as the air we breathe. What would your answer be? We spent the rest of our afternoon dying with laughter at this video of the wonderful Colleen and family enacting the Christmas story, as told by Colleen’s 3 year old niece.
Our weekend in a very wordy, grainy-photographed nutshell? Done.
p.s. Guess what? Jason’s decided to grow a beard. If you’ve been reading this little ol’ blog for a while, you’ll know how long I’ve been campaigning for him to grow a beard and so can guess how ecstatic I am right about now! Seriously, it’s like Christmas come early!
