#181 Mrs Mills

It turns out that Mrs Mills is not so obscure after all! The Album cover that I included in yesterday’s post got me researching on just who Mrs Mills was. I should have realised she’d be English, being from England myself. As soon as I found her music on YouTube and listened to a few…

#180 Ball Gowns & Thrift

Today was spent Ball gown shopping with my daughter. It was lots of fun and so wonderful to see her trying on a myriad of gowns. The gown of choice is absolutely stunning and she looks so happy and gorgeous wearing it. It was a little long so we took it to the seamstress to…

#179 Friday Feels

And so another Friday night rolls around. I’m feeling emotional and a bit frazzled and I’m trying to manage all my feelings in a positive way. Maybe a good nights sleep will be the panacea. xo

#178 Soup

It’s definitely been soup weather today and I had a craving for Chinese Chicken and Corn Soup. It was one of my faves as a kid, when we got a Chinese Takeaway. That’s the style I chose to cook and I added some Asian veg and some Mr Chen’s dumplings too. I love to our…

#177 Too much.

There have been too many appointments this week, and it’s not over yet. All my watching of Gordon Ramsay has gotten me excited about cooking again, which is great. I’m looking forward to our weekly shop as I’ve been meal planning 🙂 xo

While finding where to place the antipasto platter she had brought along to the party, and simultaneously worrying that some of the juices had…

#175 List of Things

I would say that currently on my list of things I want to do, that going on a cruise is #2. I don’t know where to, or for how long, or even when really. It’s sort of a hypothetical list, an imaginary list, meaning I haven’t actually written the list out. That’s a bit unusual…

#174 Reflection

I had the chance to spend time with longtime friends over the weekend. Some I hadn’t seen for many years. The reason for the gathering was the engagement celebrations for one of the kids. Now grown up and the same age as my eldest. It was such a truly heartwarming occasion and filed me with…

#172 Headache

New medicine has meant a huge headache. Thankfully, that only started after lunch time. It’s another medication to try and tame my unruly blood pressure. Instead my blood pressure, being the complete drama queen that she is, decided to skyrocket. My heart rate, her better looking sister, followed suit. I give up! I’m going to…
