One of my best friends has started blogging for pyjama and loungewear company Bedroom Athletics. She needed a couple of models to advertise some of her clothes this week, so Liam and I had a photo session in my room with some of the comfiest (but most ridiculous) pyjamas I have ever worn.
Lounging about with my boy and my friend was a really fun way to spend the day – and to top it off, I got to keep those super comfy slippers!
If you have a bit of spare time and want to read some funny stories about the daft things Burhana gets up to, you can check out her blog here. I would recommend it! There’s also a few more photos from our shoot on her latest post, if you’re interested.
In the morning of our day in Cardiff, Liam and I got up early for a quick breakfast in our hotel. We sorted out the things we needed for the day. Liam dressed himself in his shirt and tie, while I cut bits of fabric to sew on the drive home.
When it came to being time to check out, we dropped the car near the city centre and went for a walk around Cardiff. We found beautiful old buildings and churches, a garden that I loved a bit too much, and a Christmas market. We spent a bit of time wandering through the market buying gifts for family and for ourselves, and just soaking in the smell of Christmas. We found one stall that sold collections of dried fruit and cinnamon that encapsulated the smell of Christmas, so we stocked up and brought presents home for our mothers and ourselves. Liam has Christmas hanging from his gear stick now, while my little bag of holiday smells hangs from my headboard.
After a few hours of wandering, Liam left me to explore the castle by myself, but that is a story for another day.
Hope you have a wonderful Thursday. I’ll be spending mine finishing off a surprise I have planned for a certain someone and wrapping Christmas presents. I couldn’t ask for a more relaxing way to spend the day.
We had a grey drive into Wales with fog obscuring our vision and rain beating down on the windscreen. I thought it was beautiful, but for Liam it must have been a nuisance. It was a long drive and I spent most of it entertaining myself by watching the world go by, or sewing little Christmas presents, having promised not to sing…The landscape was incredible from the moment we got into Wales, and I enjoyed looking at (and photographing!) trees and hills, as opposed to the vast expanses of concrete and buildings we had seen during earlier parts of the journey.
There was a little town on a hill that was absolutely perfect, but I was so completely mesmerized by the colourful houses that I didn’t manage to take a photo. It’s on my list of places to visit one day. I imagine it has the cutest little cafes and bakeries, and that everyone living there knows one another. It was surrounded by forest and field and completely epitomised the stereotypical British country village, from what I could see.
The next day was a bit brighter, and we left Cardiff as the sun was setting. We changed our route and drove over the Severn Bridge to the backdrop of a pink sky. I slept most of the way home once it got dark.
Following the death of free blogging on Blogger (or at least the end of my storage space), I have moved myself to a new little corner of the internet, and changed my name in the process. Sometimes change is fun, right?
For those of you who don’t follow Dictionary.com’s word of the day religiously: Teratoid means ‘resembling a monster’. I don’t know, I liked it. Run with it.
While I’m changing things up I’d like to ask you, my six loyal readers, if there is anything you’d like to see more of on here. Or less of. Or just plain some of if it’s something I don’t do already. Let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
I hope you enjoy my new home as much as I intend to enjoy writing in it!
PS – The picture is from our hotel room in Cardiff. Hang tight and I’ll update you on that little adventure…
