Well so far August is looking like a complete wash out isn’t it? Thankfully we have still managed to squeeze the best out of the sunny days this school holiday. Indoor crafts for rainy days and as soon as the sun peeps out we are out the door!!
The girls love a farm trip so we’ve made quite a few trips there, my mum got us a family pass for Ivy’s birthday present so that makes life much easier even if we only have time to pop in for an hour. The girls love the guinea pigs so that’s always a must, this time Ivy was trying to hide hers under her arms when they came round to collect them again. Not sure what she was hoping for, she would have probably tried to smuggle her out in the nappy bag if I had let her!
My husband Fred took part in Ride London, his bike is definitely up there amongst the loves in his life. It’s a wonderful event, the roads are closed all over London and follows the Olympic route right past my parents house out in Surrey. Thousands of people take part and finish the ride arriving up the Mall towards Buckingham Palace. We came up for the weekend too and the girls and I were able to follow Fred’s journey on an app to the nearest minute and run out at exactly the right time to see him come past, so clever. He stopped for a quick hello which the girls loved but then he was on his way again.
We are thinking ahead to next week when me and the girls head to join my parents in their cottage in West Cork, Ireland. Tilda and Ivy are so excited and I can’t wait to spend some quality time with them. Hoping that Fred might make it out for a few days too but work is a bit crazy for him at this time of year. I’ve just ordered a few new items of clothing from QVC to take with me so I will be sure to do some outfit posts for my next blog. You can also keep an eye out for those on my Instagram too where I share a lot of my top picks from fashion and beauty.
This week I will be launching the Northern Nights Today’s Special Value on Thursday 10th August. Fresh bedding day really is one of my favourite simple things in life! It’s a three-piece cotton set in a choice of stripe or floral weave and there are four colour choices in each – Classic White, Sophisticated Charcoal, Fresh Eau de Nil and Vibrant Raspberry Pink.
I have already been lucky enough to give it a test run and it’s just lovely. I love white bedding, it’s crisp, fresh and bright so that’s the colour I went for in the stripe. It looks like bedding from a very upmarket hotel which adds to the luxury experience. It’s soft and smooth to run your hands over and at the Today’s Special Value price it really is a great opportunity to update your bedding or add to the sets that you already have on rotation. My girls certainly got very comfortable, very quickly! Too quickly, I’m going to have trouble getting them out.
So join me for the launch at midnight of the 9th/ 10th August and make sure you secure your preferred set and colour choice. We will have the usual sizes of Single through to Super king.
I look forward to hearing what you think of it, leave me a comment below. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
