2017 ended a little differently for us this year as we became parents! At the end of October I was put on bedrest & given some medication to keep Rosie cooking for a little while longer. Once I came off the medication, she decided to come 2 weeks early and was born on the 20th November. She is just so precious and we are absolutely loving every moment with her…even the sleepless nights…sort of!
I’ve recently received another book from Blogging for Books to review. The great thing about Blogging for Books is that you get to choose the book you would like to review. I’ve had an Instant Pot for about 2 years now and have always loved it, so I thought it would be great to get The Essential Instant Pot Cookbook by Coco Morante. I am SO glad that I chose this book as it’s already been used quite a few times!
When we were in the UK, we had a couple of days to ourselves in London. In addition to some city centre sightseeing, we knew that we wanted to do the tour of the Harry Potter Studios. We had an amazing time there so I wanted to be sure to write a blog to share a few things with you. I always find it helpful to read about other people’s experiences, especially at busy tourist venues, so I’m fully prepared to have an enjoyable day.
I did make sure to book our tickets in advance (£46.50 each for the complete studio tour package), and I’m quite glad that I did as some of the days we wanted to go were actually booked up already. We ended up getting a date but our entry time wasn’t until 4pm. We didn’t mind this too much as it did give us the day to do other things too. The website recommends that you allocate around 3 hours for the tour, and that you plan to arrive a little earlier.
So it seems like a few weeks have gone by since I last blogged a Sunday Sevens! I’m hoping that I can catch up with everyone else’s Sunday Sevens too 🙂 Please let me know in the comments if you’ve recently started Sunday Sevens too so that I can make sure to follow you! I’ve also not been keeping up with the Pinterest board, and I don’t think it’s something that I can realistically sustain so let me know if you would like inviting to the board so you can pin your own posts to it! 😀
I’ve chosen a few photos to show what’s been happening in my little life over the last few:
1. Buzz is still quite the terror: his favourite thing to do at the moment is squeeze down the back of the sofa cushions and scratch the base…then peek out like he’s not done anything wrong!
I know, I know…I’ve missed a week again! Recently I’ve felt like blogging has been at the bottom of my to-do list 🙁 BUT I do still have 7 photos to share with you from the last couple of weeks!
1. My current read is To Kill A Mockingbird. As much as I love reading, I have just never had the chance to read this book. However, my Mum was re-reading it when she came to visit at Christmas so she left me her copy…published in 1976!!!
