It’s that time again where I look back at the month gone by and pick out the best bits to share with you – linking up to Stevie’s lovely linky too. I love going through my photos and looking at the calendar, taking a moment to think back at the last few weeks and it’s always a time when I realise how fast the month has gone.
So here are a few of the things that I have loved in April:
We had an impromptu break to Mallorca earlier in the month and it was, without a doubt, the highlight of the month. So much time together, seeing the sights and building sandcastles on the beach. It was pretty perfect.
We have had so much time together as a family this month and it has been so lovely. As well as the holiday above we started the month with a long weekend up north, visiting Alton Towers, Splash Landings waterpark and Warwick Castle. If you haven’t been – go. It was such a lovely break and such a nice was to spend quality time together.
We also had a really nice time at a Day Out with Thomas. Little Man’s favourite thing in the world is Thomas and so getting the chance to have a whole day dedicated to Thomas is pretty much his dream come true.
Last weekend we spent a few days in London too – in a beautiful apartment and seeing the sights. We were so busy and we all had such tired legs by the end of it but it was so lovely to spend such a nice chunk of time in London.
Our all time favourite flavour combo is peanut butter and chocolate – and even better with added caramel – so when we were sent a bar of Cadburys new Big Taste Peanut Caramel Crisp we were pretty much in chocolate heaven. Oh em gee, it’s good! Although they do a big bar and a little bar the little bar just wouldn’t be enough, I could eat the whole of the big bar, to myself, in one sitting. It is a little bit of peanut, chocolate, caramel perfection!
I also made rhubarb crumble this month – actually just a couple of days ago, with rhubarb fresh from the garden. Crumble is one of my favourite things in life and rhubarb crumble must be one of my best comfort foods. I love it.
Yes, I have loved work this month. I have been so busy but having my little work space makes working so much easier. Our extension is now officially finished and I just love spending time in it – it’s pretty perfect. I’ll be sharing more on that when our new dining table arrives.
I love slippers every month but this month I cracked out these beauties. Yes, I feel like I am 12 again but, I love them. I wear slipper boots all year round and these just make me so happy.
And that’s it. A few things I’ve been loving this month from the big things to the tiny little bits of life. April has been a pretty lovely month and I’m not sure May will be able to compete! What have you been loving lately?
