Hello and happy Friday everyone! It's a beautiful sunny day here in Wiltshire, perfect barbecue weather or beach-strolling weather and, although I am going to be doing neither of those things, it is lovely to look out the office window and see sunshine.

This week, as standard, has been pretty crazy, and it has also been the week where the dreaded 'thunder bugs' have come out to play. If you are unfamiliar with these little critters then you are very lucky. They are teeny, tiny little bugs that, quite literally, get everywhere including inside the computer screen and in framed pictures (many of our pictures have bodies in if you look close enough...yuck!). So, on Wednesday this week, when the UK had hit boiling point and we were all sweltering away, our house had the windows closed to avoid hundreds of our 'friends' setting up camp. Bug watch has begun people, take cover!

Let's move onto slightly less creepy things and onto the things I am grateful for this week:

1. Witnessing a huge, red moon on my way home last night. I left work about 9.30pm and as I drove around a corner the giant moon greeted me and actually made me jump! As a space geek I get all kinds of 'thinky' when I see the moon looking so awesome. I also hung about waiting to see the 'mega star' this week, I think it was on Tuesday (where Jupiter and Venus aligned to form a double star) but unfortunately, just as it was getting dark, a storm hit and it clouded right over...thanks Mr Weather, thanks a bunch!

2. A mid-week present from my lovely husband. It was our three month wedding anniversary and I got a very cute little pressie when I got home on Wednesday. I feel so lucky to be married to such a wonderful man, who is my best friend.

3. Last weekend I got an email from a lovely reader called Kelly. I have said before how much it means to get emails from you guys and I want you to know how much I appreciate it. When you post on-line it is hard to know who is reading and what people think but when I get such nice emails I feel really spurred on and motivated! :-)

4. Finally coming with a business name (I think!). It may change as I am currently 'sitting with it' for a bit to see what I think, but I think I like it a lot. For me, it was hard to define what I wanted other than the feeling I wanted it to conjure up. I am happy so far so let's see how I go!

5. Re-discovering an old favourite. Thanks to Lionel Richie's beyond awesome performance at Glastonbury last weekend I dug around in my CD collection for an old album with all the greats on it. This led to a really fun Monday morning drive to work and a slightly achy face from all the singing that occurred...not bad for 6.30am hey?!

Happy end-of-week to all you lovely peeps. Have an amazing weekend.


  1. I love writing posts like this, it's so nice to reflect and remember all the little things that have happened recently! I totally agree about receiving nice messages from people who read your blog. I never expect people to read my writing so when I get thoughtful comments it means the world! x
