small sighs

It seems like the past few weeks have been a series of groundhog days.  Work, bed, work, bed. The days seem to pass by in a blur. But on Wednesday evening, as it was such a lovely evening, we made a point of going straight out after work instead of falling like heaps onto the sofa.

I am so glad we did. We drove to a country pub, sat outside with a meal and a glass of wine and took in our beautiful surroundings. Afterwards, we had a little walk and came home feeling thoroughly relaxed. 

It's so easy to get into a routine of coming home to get ready for the next day, make dinner and fall asleep on the sofa. But going straight out made us realise how important it is to take time out to 'live the little things'.

Here is what I've been enjoying this week:

grilled halloumi and salad savoury croissant

a jug full of sunshine

popcorn and a classic

 the last of the magnolia blossom

 coffee table reading

Have a great weekend lovelies.


  1. Your Wednesday night seems so lovely! I could use a night like that about now.

    1. Aww thank you Rachel. It was the perfect end to a very tiring day. Enjoy the rest of your weekend :-) x

  2. Sounds great! It's been raining 18 out of the last 20 days here so I think going to the local watering hole right after work is just what the doctored ordered!

    The grilled halloumi looks delicious. I have never heard of halloumi and had to wikipedia it. ;) Such a cheddar-head!

    1. The weather has been quite mixed here lately too. I hope it brightens up for you soon. You will love the halloumi, I'm sure :-)
