Wonderful Wednesday 37


So I slightly lost track of my week last week and Wonderful Wednesday just didn't happen. Did anyone else feel that even though it was only a four day week, those four days lasted forever?! I'm also living in a slight hayfevery-fog at the moment. Nothing seems to work and I don't know how I've anything left in me to sneeze out! You're welcome for that image.

I'm back for another Wonderful Wednesday though, ever so slightly egg-shaped now and with a mountain of Easter chocolate still to scale. How have you all been?

Weekend brunches - always a highlight of the week.

Saturday Date Night... I lost most of my Saturday morning to a headache (it could be something to do with those never-ending four days) but we brought it back with a good old fashioned movie date night that evening. We went to one of the new Curzon cinemas - did you know that in some of their cinemas you can sit in two seater sofas?! It definitely made the experience just that little bit more special. We went to watch 'The Sense of an Ending', which was moving and funny in a very English middle class way, I loved it and had some serious house envy all the way through. We walked back hand in hand through a very peaceful quiet London to get our train home, and it was the perfect evening.

♥ Marks & Spencer gluten free treats... We popped into our local M&S on Sunday to pick up some herbs and I thought I'd check out their gluten free range while I was in there. Oh my goodness, so many treats! We picked up a macaroni cheese to share, followed by a wee New York-style cheesecake. Gluten free bliss!

♥ Head scarf fun... We're off to Sicily this summer (have I mentioned that enough yet?!). I just can't wait but I'm also ever so slightly terrified about how hot it's going to be...and how my freckly little self is going to handle it. The last time we were there even a light summer hat and blouse felt like too many layers - and that was at the end of the summer season, not at its height. I thought that a scarf might be a better, lighter option to wrap around my hair, cover my parting and you know look very chic at the same time....or something. I managed to pick one up in Lush over the weekend and have been experimenting with different ways to put my hair up, although my look is rather more Blitz-chic at the moment than mysterious European traveller. Hey, I still have a few months to practice!

♥ Live chatting Ru Paul times... So after excitedly discussing Ru Paul's Drag Race in my last Wonderful Wednesday, I discovered that two of my dearest friends also love it and I had absolutely no idea - they recommended series 6 which I've been marathoning when I can over the last few weeks. We don't live close to each other and despite the differing time zones, on Monday night we lined up the finale of series 6 to all watch together and merrily messaged each other on a group chat throughout. It was almost as good as watching it together in one room, although that might have made my pj-clad-dancing to 'Sissy that Walk' slightly more embarrassing...

♥ Weekend countdown... Not to wish the weeks away or anything but there's another three day weekend in sight - I could get used to this! We're off to Norfolk to visit my mother in law and I'm already really excited to escape London for a little while. Here's hoping the sun shines so we can get out for some walks. What are your plans?

    1. Oh I wish my husband felt the same way! I suppose him not liking it does make me ration the episodes a little more than if we were both watching it all the time though! xx

    1. Thank you Peta! Do try the Curzon sometime - I'm not sure if they have two-seaters in every cinema but the cinema experience as a whole is so lovely there, a really good experience. Hope you're enjoying your long weekend x

  6. A sofa at the cinema sounds amazing, and hurrah for a headscarf, and for having travels planned x
