How’s your week going so far? It seems hard to believe we’re almost at the end of the first week in July! It was Isobel’s 13th birthday on Sunday…we have a teenager in the house! On Saturday she a had a friend over for a sleepover, then on Sunday we went for lunch joined by another of her friends. It was a busy weekend because on Saturday Isobel had a Rose Queen event to attend. I’m getting to know the towns and villages of Cheshire quite well with all the fetes and galas we’re invited to.
This week I started a new freelance job on a daytime TV programme. It’s incredibly busy and I’m having to learn quickly…as well as get up at 3.30am! I am not a morning person at all so it’s been a huge shock to the system. By Friday I’ll need a holiday! I can’t get to sleep early so I have to make up for it by sleeping for a couple of hours in the afternoon, which means I’m pretty useless from midday onwards. But I keep telling myself that pushing out of your comfort zone is the only way to progress and grow. Even before this week, work was very busy; I’ve just finished a period of cover with a different team doing things I wouldn’t normally. All of this has meant that I’ve had next to no time for the blog, Instagram and TikTok. But next week I have a few days off so will be catching up with it then.
You’ve probably seen this outfit before; it’s a summer favourite of mine. Scotch & Soda is one of my favourite brands and this tropical print co-ord comes with me on most holidays. I featured it two years ago styled it an almost identical way. An outfit like this is such an easy option for when I want to look like I’ve made an effort but I’m short on time. Gold jewellery, co-ordinating headband and a bag in a colour picked out from the print is all it needs.
I’m keeping it short and sweet this week as I really need my sleep! I wanted to stick to my link up schedule but have to make some short cuts. Apologies for not featuring the usual three favourites – normal service will be resumed next week!
