A weekend with the big sis.


I booked Friday of last week off work to make way for a nice long weekend. My sister lives on the Isle of Man but was back home for the weekend so she made a pit stop to spend the day and night with Jonathan and I at our house.

Friday was spent devouring mac n cheese burgers, dashing round Meadowhall, eating our treats from the American sweet shop, baking a carrot cake and getting dolled up for a night out in Sheffield. One or two (or ten) cocktails were consumed and I got the chance to don my newly purchased printed trousers which are a whole new and scary thing for me!

Aforementioned printed trousers (River Island) and my current favourite shoes (by Georgia Rose c/o Sarenza) I've worn them to death over the past couple of months!

There's no rest for the wicked. On Saturday I was woken up early by the dogs so I decided to stay up at risk of sleeping through the whole day. I left my sister snoozing in the spare bedroom while I tidied up ready for our mum and dad to come over for lunch.

Jonathan made a big help-yourself type of lunch with salad, bread, roast chicken and homemade wedges, followed by a slice of carrot cake (homemade the previous day!) and all washed down with a cup of tea and plenty of chatter about our holiday to Florida in a few weeks time (#sixandahalfweekstogo!)

A sneak peek of my new Sugarhill Boutique blouse - how fab is that print!

We waved my parents goodbye and my sister headed off not long after. Jonathan and I had a lazy afternoon and a sunny stroll to the duck pond with Lily and Lola before I admitted defeat at 7pm and fell asleep. It's a good job I had another day to recover before work. Sunday was nice and relaxed, with a roast dinner at Jonathan's parents house a couple of minutes up the road, and plenty of telly watching.

I'm getting too old for nights out! ;) I'm still tired now!

Did you all have a good weekend? Wednesday tomorrow - hasn't that come round quick!?

  1. Sounds like a lovely weekend. Those printed trousers are gorgeous - they really suit you. I've been trying to pluck up the courage to buy some for ages and I think you have just convinced me! Think I'm getting too old for nights out too! ;-) The hangovers seem to be getting worse the older I get!


  2. Ahh it sounds like you had such a great weekend! I love family weekends, I miss mine so much! That carrot cake looks delicious, too.
    I don't mind that it's Wednesday so quick - just means another weekend is right around the corner :)

  3. Love that Sugarhill Boutique blouse :) you and your sister look really similar! My holiday countdown is ONE WEEK! Arghhh!!! :D We're going to the West coast though

  8. That sounds like the perfect weekend! I'm meant to be going dancing tomorrow night and I've got no idea how I'm going to do it :s On the plus side, it starts at 7 - so maybe I'll make it to 9.30! Haha.

  12. This sounds like such a perfect weekend (especially the cheeky extra day off!) It says a lot about me though that the massive help yourself lunch that Jonathan made is a lot more tempting than a boozy night out!
