what a wonderful week

19 Jul

I have had such an amazing 7 days…

It started with my lil’ sisters wedding last Friday.  What a gorgeous and relaxed day we had.  Congratulations to the new Mrs Amy.  This is the beautiful dress i got to wear



This dress is from BHLDN, the wedding arm of Anthropologie.  It is A-MAZ-ING.  Ali’s dress was from the same shop.  Stunning.

Next up we paid a very flying visit to London to see Paul Simon play at Hyde Park.  If you’ve never been to the Hard Rock Calling festival then you should definitely put it on your list of things to do.  Those who reside in dear old blighty will know the weather hasn’t been kind to us recently but the lovely festival organisers wood chipped everything so not only was there no mud but the whole place smelt pine fresh!  Paul Simon was INCREDIBLE.  His set was more than two hours long and his guest list was as long as your arm.  Totally worth getting up at stupid o’clock Sunday and Monday to see him.  I love him even more now i’ve seen him live.

Then we had my gorgeous hubby’s birthday which culminated in a lovely meal by the beach (albeit a wet and windy beach) with lots of our friends.

I’m off out for my fourth meal of the week tonight (pizza in case you were wondering).  Then i think as of this weekend its clean eating and lots of exercise for me.  I had an MRI scan on Monday and the scariest part was that they have to weigh you first!  Eeep! Having not weighed myself for about six months i had a bit of a shock.  But hey ho i’m injured – that’s my excuse and i’m sticking to it.

Let me put all this into perspective for you – this time last year my husband had just been diagnosed with cancer.  I’d had to leave him at the hospital to go home and pack his bag for a medical flight to the UK.  Now we get to fly off at our leisure to do the things we really want to do.  This makes me very smiley!!!

I had the MRI results today – i’m still digesting those and what they mean for me so that will be another blog post.

I hope you’re all having equally wonderful weeks!

    Hello! I’ve just got back online after a bit of time off and seen all your posts. Bless you – I had been thinking your leg must’ve been better by now and I’m so sorry it isn’t. Fingers crossed the MRI scan shows something that will help cure it. Good luck! Other than that your dress is STUN.NING and I’m so glad you’ve been having a good time … and that so much has changed since last year.

    See you in cyberspace soon!

    Yup, definitely eventful though possibly in a less stressful way than you have. Take care and see you soon! xx
