a july update

22th July 2020
Well, that was a slightly longer break than I intended to take from my diaries. I feel like at the beginning of lockdown, everything kind of went a bit quiet didn’t it!? Contracts were put on hold, everyone began working from home and time seemed to be in abundance, but as the realities of lockdown set in, work in my sector actually began to return to (new) normal which has taken a bit of juggling, especially now with so many new hobbies that I didn’t have pre Covid. Just for transparency, Ali and I actually watched Gardeners World for the first time in our lives last night and I enjoyed it! So lets catch up! What have you been doing these last few weeks? How have you found things re-opening and social lives somewhat resuming? I went for my first “night out” at the weekend to celebrate three years of working with my best friend. We went to our favourite places where we live, ate pizza, drank wine and laughed so so much, it was an absolute tonic for the soul and I think thats one of the things I’ve realised I really missed over the last few months. You know those “good life” moments where you just look around and you’re surrounded by good vibes, good people, good wine and your heart just feels full. I intend to have more of those moving forward I think. I’ve seen people travelling the world and my instagram has been full of the most wonderful views across the world, have you found yourself itching to travel yet? I know I have felt the itch but am perhaps not quite there yet, I think life post lockdown is a very personal journey now and everyone is just working out what feels right for […]

I’ve seen people travelling the world and my instagram has been full of the most wonderful views across the world, have you found yourself itching to travel yet? I know I have felt the itch but am perhaps not quite there yet, I think life post lockdown is a very personal journey now and everyone is just working out what feels right for them. But I’m booking in a little staycation and some trips and work in London has began to trickle in so I’m sure I will be back there in no time, Lumi will be livid ha-ha!

I know I mentioned earlier about hobbies and I’m intrigued, have you picked up any new hobbies whilst in lockdown? I feel like the entire world caught the gardening bug and I’m wondering how much of it will stick around as life resumes? I know I’m hoping to continue and progress with everything I have been growing, in fact this week I purchased my first vegetable seeds so I will be sure to update you on how that goes, I’m still no better at growing Rosemary though, I’m on my third attempt and still nothing!

 

So how have you been? What have you been up to? Have you caught the gardening bug? What have you been growing? Have you travelled or booked any travel? Are you back at work? How has that been? Let me know in the comments!

A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
