• GOING. SOLO. •
I'm going at it solo this week; @jameshill.tv is away with work. Oh and we haven't got our car for the entire week either👨🏻🔧. The weather is just awful, isn't it 🙄So far I'm smashing this start to the 6 weeks holidays 🙈
Even though James was picked up for the airport at 4:45am 😴, he managed to write us a lovely little letter for us to wake up to 🖤 We miss you

• FUN. GUYS. •
Though, they do look spectacularly like they belong in the bottom of the ocean 🍄🐚
• JOBS. WORTH. •
You know you're in the right profession when it's not about the money any more... and your role feels like a total privilege.
I've always wanted to work in an Educational setting. An English teacher was always my first choice (Drama teacher second, obviously). Post University, I got sucked into London life and then the need to be strapped to Social Media 24/7 (for work & leisure). 10 years later, I FINALLY downed digital tools and began my new career path this year. I've had a variety of roles between the Preschool and Infant School; making me FULL TIME again 😴 On site, I'm known to wear "a different hat every day" 😂. And sometimes I even swap my hats 2-3 times a day 😉
It's been bloody hard work - the hardest work in my life - but I've loved every minute. Every single minute.
Nothing prepared me for how rewarding it would be. How fulfilled (and shattered) I'd feel. Or how heartbroken it would be to say goodbye on their last day ❤️
I know it's easier said than done. But this year taught me that you have to spend your days doing something you're passionate about. You spend the majority of your life in work. If you're able to, make it something that you WANT to do. Don't do it for the money. Do it for the love. You get one chance at life. Don't spend your days chasing the money. Chase the passion. Chase the experience. Chance the non-monetary rewards.
2017 Terms, you've been bloody brilliant 🖤
Merry Friday gang - and HAPPY SODDING SUMMER HOLIDAYS! 💘
PS - I get to just sleep for 6 weeks now, right? 🤔
PPS - radio silence again this week. I am the illness 🤒
• TEA. TIME. •

The only trouble with this Bun is that she can be a bit of a chameleon; completely camouflaged against her surroundings 🖤🐰

I've said this before. Flowers really do have the super ability to lift your mood and whack a big smile on your face. Doesn't matter if they're a big bunch or handpicked (weeds!) or even self-bought. A bunch of blooms does magical things for the soul ✨
I especially loved these beauties👆🏼 from @jolers Birthday soirée yesterday. And so lovely to wake up to them on our windowsill 💘 Thank you!🌷
We're planning a trip to @ikeauk this morning. What are you all up to today?
Merry Sunday gang! 💘
