Saturday for two weeks

Today is an exciting day for me because my other half, who normally lives an hour and a half away, is coming to stay for two weeks as he’s on a training course up here. Normally we only get to spend two or three days in a row together due to both of our working patterns, so we are both looking forward to living together for a little while like a proper couple. In fact, I am looking forward to it so that I have prepared a list of fun things to do whilst he is up here, and even a shopping list so we can make sure we have yummy meals to eat.

Luckily, prior to him coming to stay this time we have spent a week on a yacht and two weeks in a camper van in France together so I know that we won’t kill each other by the end of it!

As well as (one of the things on the list!) a visit to Marwell Zoo tomorrow I have had a lovely chilled Friday night and Saturday morning in the flat, which was just what I needed after the last few weekends of festivals, weddings, and a week of being on call. Last night my friend Becki came round for a girly night and we had a bottle of rosé wine and she painted my nails. We decided to go for a nautical theme and this was the result;

And Becki tried a lighthouse on her thumbnail:

What do you think?

This morning I am just going to potter around and watch some trashy TV and read my book – I cannot wait! It is a lovely day in Southampton today so the balcony door is open and I am enjoying the sunshine.

That is the view from my balcony, through my carrots, that are still growing away, and probably need repotting!
