i’m going to be super-british now (…as though i’m ever anything but!) and talk about the weather! how glorious was the sunshine yesterday?! it felt like the first day of real spring, with a warm sun beating down and cloudless blue skies. jason and i didn’t even grumble when ted woke us up at the crack of dawn, because you just can’t be miserable in the face of a view like the one above, can you? i really do love where we live all year round, but when the acer’s in full bloom and the sunlight’s sparkling on the water i fall in love all over again.
whilst the boys went off to a puppy-training session yesterday morning, i had my first haircut in over two years! i booked it on a whim (does anyone else do that? i don’t think i’ve ever had my haircut not on a whim) and am pleased as punch! last time i had my hair cut i said to the hairdresser ‘i hate my hair, can you do something radical?’ so he lopped off about a foot of hair (no exaggeration!) and i cried for approximately two weeks solid. also, i’m certain that this is the first time ever in my whole life i’ve had a fringe cut in (not that it really shows, in the photo above) and haven’t instantly been itching to clip it up. guess those crazy old dancer ‘i must keep my hair off my face’ tendencies are finally fading!
we even managed to tick off the first ‘to do’ on our summer to do list yesterday, and had a picnic by the pond! i made some red velvet cupcakes, and ma, jason and i took them outside and enjoyed them in the sunshine. even teddy came too! he was on his best behaviour, and only trampled his way through our picnic one and a half times! and that, for a perpetually over-excited eight month old cocker spaniel, is quite the achievement!
yesterday i was listening (and singing along, loudly) to: taylor swift, reading: love taza, eating: porcini mushroom risotto, because jason and i just can’t get enough of the stuff, drinking: strawberry ribena, enjoying: driving my little car with the sunroof open!
how was your saturday? did you get out and enjoy the sunshine? :)
