Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a great weekend! I was meant to start wrapping Christmas presents and those cards I wish I didn’t have to do but are expected this weekend. In true Nat style everything’s sitting unwrapped and unwritten before my last self imposed shipping day next Wednesday. I seem to work better with a little bit of pressure, leaving things to the last minute. I think my Mum’s the same. I still have to find an outfit for next week’s Buff Epic Run a costume, untimed obstacle race. I’ve had about 6 weeks already to come up with an idea. No pressure.

As with every race you take away what you need to work on. My last one was the walls. I’ve been working on (more…)

Late November Catch Up

Happy December!

I hope your week’s going okay. Apologies for not stopping by to say hi last week. The week went in a blur. I said see you later to my friend moving back to Australia with her growing family. Her big surprise before she left! I’ll miss her. We only just met this summer, following my trend of making friends only for one of us to leave within a year. I’m happy for her, yet I know I’m going to miss her loads.

The cats have had their own personal mini dramas last week, all relating to their ongoing illnesses and I was just plain lazy. (more…)

Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a great weekend! Before I forget, Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers! Mine’s been unintentionally catching up on sleep in an already out of whack sleep routine, but hey, I think I’ve found a solution to bulky scarves.

I always find most scarves are too big for me making me look like either I’m wearing a neck brace (more…)
