What a lovely bank holiday weekend!
We spent a lot of it clearing up and getting on top of some of the sorting we have to do before the next stage of the building work, but still found time to enjoy this glorious sunny weather. We finished the weekend off with a BBQ under the scaffolding!
It was lovely to wake up on a Bank Holiday Monday morning and find that there were no builders here . I needed a day at home , just with family . It has been early mornings all summer here - I just haven't felt able to lie in bed past 7.30am when we have builders in and around the house from the crack of dawn.
I nipped into Boots later in the day, to pick up some Nurofen whilst my middle son was having a tennis lesson . My eye was caught by the Soap and Glory offer of two items for £15 and I gave in to temptation and grabbed these two. The highlighter was £11 and the quad £10 individually. So whatever way you look at it I got one item greatly reduced. I have been after a couple of eye shadows to replace my favourite Mac ones that are almost at the end. The two colours on the left in the Soap and Glory quad are very similar to these so I snapped them up. Boots also had the added incentive of extra points today - always good in my book!

I have had my eye on this lovely radiance face powder for some time, so decided this would be my second product. It gives a lovely , subtle sheen to the cheek bones. It is not quite as gold as the TopShop one I have already.

Both a nice little treat and pick me up.
I am intent on enjoying every last scrap of the summer this year. It may have something to do with the fact that we will have no heating or kitchen until the end of September so it HAS to stay warm, sunny and generally dry at least until then. We are living in absolute disarray at the moment which has been a steep learning curve for me. I have had to let things slip, allow myself to "not bother" about things I am usually "very bothered" about. It some ways it has been quite freeing. However, it has been hard work, messy and frustrating. I am not sure I would embark on another project ever again!
The main room of the extension - the kitchen, is ready for the plasterers this week and then we are nearing the floor tiles going down and the kitchen going in. We still have a way to go elsewhere, but everything will become easier and less cramped once we have this space done. I am looking forward to posting before and after shots!

We have had a very simple summer with the kids. A weeks camping, a few day trips, beach days, home days, play dates with friends and generally being in and around the village where we live. The kids have a lot of friends locally and there is always a game of football to be had in the park.
I can't believe it is back to school and work next week .
How was your Bank Holiday Weekend ?
Did you get out and enjoy the mini heatwave?
