Oh jeez, where to start with February?? Well, I spent the first two weeks of it off work, feeling incredibly dizzy and sick!! I was in bed for most of the mornings with the TV on quietly as a distraction, then had a quick shower and flumped on the sofa with a blanket for the afternoons; Dog Rescuers with Alan Davies has become one of my new favourite shows!!
I did manage to get to Asda though as we’d run out of bread and milk 🙁 I accidentally picked up a copper tealight holder and some flowers for myself! I also bought this cute cactus dish and the spotty mug online!!
Because I was ill, I missed my best friend’s party to celebrate her little boy turning 3 and saying goodbye to the house that I helped her move into in London as she’s moving soon!! I also missed going out for dinner with Abi and Rachael 😭😭😭😭 but as Abi was ill too, we put our plans on hold for the following week!
Once I felt better and was back at work, I was really looking forward to seeing Alice in Southampton, finally getting our selfie and meeting Joshua, but unfortunately travel chaos meant we had to put our plans on hold. Luckily we’ve rearranged for next month and I’m determined to get there this time (barring the snow issues!)
For pancake day, J and I make the decision we were going to have waffles instead, as we both prefer them! They were absolutely delicious and we topped ours with chocolate ice cream and maple syrup!!
Valentine’s Day was pretty quiet in our house as we’d decided not to celebrate this year. Saying that though, I still came home to two Terry’s chocolate oranges, a Toblerone and a box of Terry’s All Gold!! You might notice I said two chocolate oranges and there’s only one … We scoffed one before I thought to take a pic lol
I got to have my dinner out with Abi and Rachael at Street Thai, I wrote about post about it! It was so lovely having a catch up, we always have a fab time 🙂
I went up to London to see Sarah and say bye to her house. We had a lovely time catching up and I got treated to a fish finger sandwich with chips!!
Blogwise, it’s been a bit quiet as I wasn’t really able to blog while I was off sick because looking at the computer screen made me feel sick. Luckily I had a couple of posts waiting to go!! I did get a couple of fab opportunities though, I was sent a Latest in Beauty box to try, so it was lovely having a nice parcel to go through, especially as I’d forgotten what I’d ordered!! You can read my post about it here.
I was also sent this absolutely beautiful watch from Time Chain; the sister company of STORM. I knew I had pick this rose gold and grey watch as it’s absolutely beautiful!! If you’re in Brighton and pop to the Storm shop in Bond Street, you can get 20% off all Time Chain watches until the end of March with my code Holly20 ♥
Lastly, I’m not sure if you knew but it snowed!! I absolutely love the snow if I have nowhere to be, but I had to get to work. One slippery journey to the bus stop and it was all good!!
