It’s safe to say that March has been a rather great month; I got to explore a new city, stared a gorilla in the eyes (and it didn’t charge at me), saw a rather happy hippo and learnt a load of new things at work. It’s gone both fast and slow, depending on the week but I’ve enjoyed it thoroughly.
I also (with an awful lot of help from my other half) managed to get this site up and running at the start of the month and 4 weeks on I am completely loving the final outcome. I hope you all like it too but I feel like this layout lets me highlight my posts in a better way than my previous layout and I’m excited to continue to work on it and improve it over the coming months.
This month I’ve been loving Hold Back the River by James Bay and I’ve also had Take Me To Church in my head non-stop. I have to admit it’s getting a little repetitive and not being able to remove it from my head is becoming a problem. If you have any other song recommendations then I’d really appreciate them right now!
This month has also been a month of food, apart from the amazing food I had in while in Prague, I also made a variety of Beef sliders and fell in love with a BBQ glazed one with fresh coleslaw, I made my first ever Roast and I also mixed up a batch of cornflake cakes (seen as Easter is on Sunday after all). I can’t say theres any left in the house now though, but I might give Creme Egg Brownies a go instead, because they do look insanely tasty, and relatively simple to make.
After being a huge fan of A Beautiful Mess for years (but not having a house to be able to do half of their amazing DIY’s, I had to make this Pineapple night light after seeing it on both their blog and instagram feed. It now sits proudly on top of my drawers and I’m already thinking of more mason jar lights that I can add to it. I think it would adorable as part of a cluster of twinkling little jars. And it cost me less than a fiver to do, so it was well worth getting the lid of the glue stuck to my shirt (ok so I’m not exactly a DIY goddess yet then…).
Next month brings Easter, my first Easter Sunday not working in years means that I’m going to a local food and drink festival to
eat everything have a wander around local brands stalls and sample some of the food and drink. It also hopefully brings Spring. The past two weeks we’ve seen sunny days, rainy days, torrential rain and howling winds; so I’m not too sure what kind of season you’d call this yet. But Spring; if you are listening, hurry up please?
What did you get up to in March? And do you have any plans for April?
