Loads of fun last night, we enjoyed an international meal with our pastoral group. 8 nationalities sat around the table, this is my #1goodthing. We ate Korean sticky chicken, Spanish tortilla patatas, tomato chicken, Russian salad & bread. Followed by kurgizstan apple pie, Italian panacotta & raspberry coulis
Afternoon friends, I'm a little late with this today but I suspect no-one has noticed!
We are away at my husbands parents this weekend and this is the same area where we lived for fifteen years before moving to East Sussex, so it has been fabulous to catch up with some old friends and many of the kids Godparents. So nice to grab a decent cuppa in John Lewis this morning and catch up on their news, whilst the kids shared excitedly about what they had been up to as well.
In one weekend we have managed to see loads of people, not quite everyone but near enough. I had a great evening with my friend Kate who I've known since Uni and we did our usual of a take-away and some Saturday night TV as well as a look round her new gorgeous period cottage.
We also headed over to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour to see the making of Harry Potter. We have been there before and really enjoyed it but there have been lots of changes since we were last there with the addition of the Hogwarts Express train (so iconic) and the whole studio tour was decorated for their #HogwartsintheSnow feature with Christmas and snow displays.
It's been a great weekend to top off a fab week, which saw us enjoying a Christmas meal out with friends, having our pastoral group round to ours for a meal, where they cooked for us and we had food and people from eight nationalities around the table and we also had a good open afternoon at the girls school.
Thanks to all those who have been joining in with the #1GoodThing community, I'm really enjoying seeing your photos and feeling your Advent and Christmas cheer.
Don't forget if you want to join in, just tag any pictures on Instagram or FB with #1GoodThing and I'll be able to see them and will comment and like them. The reason I started this was to keep a positive focus during the month of December when so many people either go a bit crazy with the bigness of the festivities or some people, of course find it a very hard month in terms of missing loved ones and such.
I've picked four of my favourite pictures shared for this last week and I hope you enjoy them -
We usually cover our tree in trinkets we have collected from travelling and home made treasures. This year I wanted an adult matching tree so I made Olivia her own tree in the playroom to hang it all from. Using bamboo canes from the garden I sprayed them gold, whacked in some tacs and pegged them to the wall along with lights. Best.mum.ever. Move over Kirstie - handmade what?! 🎄 #mycameracapture #handmadechristmas #instaphoto #playroom #thatsdarling #myhappycapture #thehappynow
