I don’t know about you but the past month has been so busy. We got Covid at the end of March but were really lucky that we didn’t get too poorly with it. So it’s been lovely to get back to ‘normal’ and have had some great times already so far this month.

Over the past month, we’ve had two weekends away in our caravan, I finally got a haircut, we took the kids to the Silverstone Museum, celebrated Easter, tackled some jobs at home and in the garden as well as caught up with friends and family. It’s been pretty awesome and today is actually my birthday, so I am off for a reflexology treatment this afternoon which was my Mother’s Day treat. Yay!

Next month is a little quieter I think, but we do have another trip in our caravan to look forward to, and of course the bank holiday weekend. Fingers crossed for sunshine.

📌 Some of this month’s wedding planning articles you may have already missed:

Wow, it’s been a busy few weeks has it not?! Lots more coming your way soon too, hooray!
