From a foreign country, hello! This weekend I’ve travelled many miles from London to my homeland of Cardiff to visit my wonderful Mum for Mother’s Day. It’s been quite a stereotypically girly weekend full of shopping, wine, a spot of running (finally!) and mostly frequently and importantly, cake.
Prior to all the cake, this week has been full of less enjoyable illness and boxes. Nic has a bad case of a throat infection, whilst I have been continuing with stage 2 of our house move, packing up our life into easily movable bite size chunks (whilst praying that they don’t end up in even smaller chunks at the other end..).
I’ve made a lot of progress in work this week, after having an Adobe After Effects course rescheduled, I decided to have a crack at it myself. I’m just finishing off a blog post about material design which incorporates this new found skill – it should be up by tomorrow lunchtime.
It’s all feels very ‘calm before the storm’ right now in our flat. We’re still making good progress on preparation before the more, even with Nic’s newfound husky personality, so fingers crossed next weekend will continue just as smoothly. Here’s to us being happy and settled in our new home by this time next week, exciting!
