Hello my lovely friends.
Welcome to the blog on this gorgeous Bank Holiday Monday.
I'm shocked that it will be June tomorrow, time seems to be flying by and that's even with hardly any socializing and holidaying to fill my days!!
By contrast the weekend has been lovely and I've been having fun going out for a couple of special events. Friday I went swimming with my daughter and her kids, she'd hired a private pool for an hour and it was lovely to see the kids having fun and gaining confidence in the water - by the end of the session the two older kids were getting about quite well, my grandson prefers to be under the water rather than on it! The youngest who's 2 was jumping in to me - which he loved and I looked a pretty picture too. (There I was thinking I wouldn't get my hair wet) Ha!
Friday evening the second session learning the waltz, I mastered the fairly easy routine and loved whirling around on my own in my floaty dress. X
Saturday a 30th BBQ and fortunately the weather played ball and was quite warm, yes that strange yellow object in the sky even made an appearance!!! Breaking news "the sun came out".
Typically burgers and sausages were served with salads, potato salad, coleslaw and various other delicious meats. I took some king prawns that I marinated in chillies & garlic, they were on skewers and cooked in seconds on the BBQ. Another stunning cake from my daughter Little Berry Bakes - The Batman themed drip cake looked very deceiving as it was decorated in black and yellow with rocky road on the top, what a surprise to find it was delicately flavoured with lemon!
Sunday we met up with friends in a local pub, roast lunch was amazing. It felt wonderful to actually hug friends and sit enjoying their company - here's to many more. I had roast beef with trimmings, so nice to have a roast I haven't had to cooked! Finished off the fabulous meal with gypsy tart and a few glasses of Prosecco, I was completely stuffed. 💓
And just like that it's Monday - do love a long weekend though, wish we could have one every week!
Not sure what the plans are today, but it will probably involve the sofa, relaxing and a takeaway.
Back to the blog title. My four blogger friends and I tackle a new challenge each month and Hilda from the Style Not Age collective came up with the fab prompt of ....
Inspiration from the Sky and Sea.
With so much scope I figured this wouldn't be too much of a big issue, and to be fair I came up with the outfit a while ago. I tweaked the skirt as the tulle option just didn't look right and I've been itching to wear the Zara blouse for ages - but I waited as I knew it would be spot on for the challenge.
