March 2017 // Weddings, Mothers Day and fancy dress

Read

I have found my reading rhythm this month and have been clocking through books at speed. I completed 3 books this month and all of them were fantastic. I particularly enjoyed in a Dark Dark Wood by Ruth Ware. It was gripping and I felt the need to just keep reading to find out the answers - I would really recommend. The Last Anniversary was a great story with plenty of humor, and sadness - especially around the post natal depression element. James Patterson delivers fast paced, popcorn crime stories, I loved the main character Alex Cross. I'm spending my lunch breaks browsing charity shops now for more in the series

Watched

We have been gripped with the return of Broadchurch on ITV. (and having just watched the finale last night) it did not disappoint. The story was well pieced together, well followed through and the characters were believable. We would sit in silence and devour the hour. A brilliant British drama

Heard

Yes we caved and bought the great Ed Sheeran new album Divide. The boys adore this album and we have been having to listen to it on repeat. Maxwell favorite being Galloway Girl, Natty loving The Shape of You and I have a little love for Barcelona. It is great finding something we can all listen to. 

Ate

Where we live in Croydon there is plenty to do - and with the opening of Box Park there has been even more places to eat. We headed up here for my mums birthday this month and was impressed with the choices. The eldest had chips, the youngest noodles, my dad a hot dog, my mum pad Thai and me and K had Indian. Followed by frozen yogurt and crepes. Lots of diverse things to try and sample. We shall be heading back soon.


Wore 

I love getting dressed up for a wedding or a christening. If we are heading to a family gathering I will get my dress and heels on. We had all been invited to a friends Wedding and I got this rather beaut of a dress from my inlaws as a present. Its from Very and I did have to go a size up (to fit the ample curves I have been graced with in) to give a bit more room as not much stretch on the dress. I felt pretty in this full dress - and now planning when can I wear it next.

Made
My crafting time seems to have disappeared but I started a corner to corner crochet rainbow blanket for a friend at work expecting a darling rainbow baby later this year. I will finish it I will finish it.

And also - seeing as the kids broke up early I also had a hand in an Easter Bonnet for school. Yay for seasonal crafting, glue guns and goofy smiles.

Baked
A choclate tray bake - which was a success. My husband arranged a play date with some of his friends and their kids - and this was the prefect tea time treat for them all. With a fudgy topping, sprinkles and buttons. This Tray bake tin from Lakeland is fantastic!!

And scones - we got a new oven fitted this month as my old one died a death. These were successful and tasted yum - pleased with the impressive rise I got on them too.

Rest of best

Yes these boys still at times sleep in our bed. Yes it is cramped. Yes it uncomfortable at time. But man they make my heart feel full.

Book week fun at nursery for this dude - the Gruffalo (firm fave) and Harry potter - which he adores.
A kung fu grading for the biggest - moving up levels and still showing commitment. Little man not wanting to miss out on the action.
Mothers day - full of coffee, cuddles and cards. What more can you ask for?

March was pretty lovely, with the weather on the turn and sunny days on the horizon.
