So half term was part 'chill out' time and part 'let's start prepping for our move down south'. We won't move until the summer and whilst I lived in London for 11 years before relocating back when Oliver was 1, it feels like quite a big move as we have two kids now.
I've not posted a 'Weekend in Pictures' for a while so I wanted to today.
I'm going to kick off this post being entirely honest (as I always am) and state that Sunday at Geronimo Festival in Leeds was not a fun day, overall.
I can't believe I turned 35 last Monday! Whoop the whoop! It's only just over a week in but so far, so good people!
Last night saw me meet up with two old friends, Carlie and Nicola for a much needed girly night.
There's nothing lovelier in my book, than spending the weekend with happy-making friends and family. The weekends are our time to simply recharge our batteries and relax. We mostly spend them outdoors enjoying gorgeous Yorkshire, eating copious amounts of great food (luckily we have 4 restaurants in the family nearby) and resting from the busy week before, with the best of company. Last Sunday saw us do just that when we met up with our great friends Rachel, Richard and their sweet family in Leeds.
I've always been a bit of a girl's girl-I'm still friends with many of my oldest girlfriends from school, sixth form and university then from working in the film industry; I love how empowering good female friends can be! I'd be lost without them!
One of my oldest, closest (and most gorgeous) friends Emma is in London from LA over Christmas so this weekend was all about quality time together, catching up face to face (Skype can never compare but helps since she moved Stateside), Christmas shopping and of course partying in sparkly London town!
I'm going to write a longer post another time but I wanted to share a quick shot of my fab girlfriends who've been staying with me this weekend (Sharmin has flown in from Amsterdam, Amancay travelled from London-we studied together at Goldsmiths', University of London).
