I am one hundred per cent, shamelessly piggy backing on #tbt. Or “throw back thursday” for those of you not on Instagram.
(yes, that explanation was really for my mother.. Hi Mummy!)
I haven’t posted in a while and had really started beating myself up about it. Naively, I thought when I started a blog I’d be able to easily post once a week.. Ha! What a dreamer! #getyourshittogethermichelle
Suddenly it’s December, and where’s my super cute Christmas baking post? #howisitdecemberalready
Where’s my crafty homemade Christmas decorations post? #seriouslywhere
Where’s my rum and sorrel post? #haverum #needsorrel
The thing is, there are lots of hobbies and activities that are all a nice idea and come from good intention, but then life happens and you end up knee deep in craft supplies, ingredients with looming expiry dates, thousands of pins and hardly any time for sleep, let alone harnessing your inner Martha!
So instead of feeling overwhelmed by life, I’m looking on the amazingly bright side of what happens when life happens rather than what doesn’t.
Life is good.
This summer I went on a pretty unplanned, last minute trip to London and it was pure and simple bliss. My bestie Kate very fittingly dubbed it the Summer of Love, I went with the much less sophisticated title #besttripevarrrrrrrrr.
Amazing friends, family and food tied with tipsy pub nights, lost headphones, park visits, well-needed catchups and lots of tea and rum punch. I’d say that definitely equals love.
I hope you find some time to throw back to some good memories today and if not, please go ahead and find the humor boards on Pinterest – they are a God send! They don’t want you to bake a 32 layer cake, they don’t want you to sew your own wedding dress, they just want you to laugh! #winning
