The Week That Was: Captured #74

Howdy! Welcome to The Week That Was: Captured! Have you had a wonderful week?

The rules for #TWTWC are simple; link up one post about your week! It can be photographed, Instagrammed, written, videoed… basically in any format you wish! This linky is about capturing memories and I treat it a bit like an online diary. Please only link up relevant posts. Also, if you fancy commenting on other people’s posts that would be super too – everyone loves a comment!

Last week
Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 19.06.55Katie’s (Doing a lot with a little) post made me feel very excited for Christmas last week. I love the sound of the foodie Christmas market on the South Bank, and am already regretting our move to Yorkshire just for this reason!!

emmys mummyI really enjoyed Clare’s (Emmy’s Mummy) post last week – it was so lovely to read about Emmy’s award and the chocolate Yule log she made looked absolutely amazing!

miniMini Travellers had me craving the warm weather in their post last week. They visited Lanzarote in November, which is something I’d never think of doing – but it’s still super warm and looks gorgeous! Maybe a holiday for next year…

Our week
I’ve been a bit pants at taking photos this week – it’s been a combination of crazy busy-ness and total exhaustion. I’ve been in bed by 9.30-10pm most nights and have fallen asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow! But we’ve moved! Successfully! Hurrah! With the help of some amazing friends we managed to get everything up North, everything down South cleaned and presentable, and have (just about) retained our sanity.

Sunday was spent cleaning our house… Two of our absolutely amazing friends came over to help, as Nick was driving back from Yorkshire until about 2pm! We finished cleaning about 8pm… Snore!!

We said au revoir to Sussex on Monday afternoon and drove to Yorkshire! Busby was amazing on the car journey! We stopped at trusty Pizza Express in beautiful Stamford for dinner, and made it to Yorkshire for 10pm! At which point all three of us headed straight to bed.

Tuesday was spent moving boxes upstairs and getting settled in Nick’s parents house.

We didn’t do much on Wednesday either!

I headed over to Bolton on Thursday to attend the SS15 Press Launch for Cosatto. I spent a wonderful day eating cake, catching up with Bloggers I hadn’t seen for ages and coveting the new range and beautiful designs! I even went down the Cosatto staff slide, which was pretty exciting!

Friday was spent feeling pretty frazzled after the busy-ness of Thursday, so we relaxed around the house. I had a nap in the afternoon which helped. I’d forgotten how glorious a nap can be!

I attended something rather exciting on Saturday morning (which I can’t reveal quite yet) and then we all headed over to Wakefield in the afternoon to buy Busby some brand new boots, and some Christmas crafty bits for Busby and I to do next week when Nick starts his new job.

    What a crazy week for you. But wooooooo hoooo you’ve now moved – that’s awesome.
    I couldn’t find childcare to get to Cosatto sadly.

    Thanks for the mention this week.

      Oh that’s a shame – it would have been lovely to see you! xx

    I love that slide! I’ve been toying with a Graze box for a while and I think you might just have convinced me.

    • 3rd December 2014 / 10:18 pm

      They’re awesome! A really lovely treat to pop through the letterbox every week 🙂 xx

    Gosh, crazy week. Glad you have moved safely, at least. I love those banoffee dippers!

    • 3rd December 2014 / 10:17 pm

      Yes – we’re here! Hurrah! xx ps I know – I just ate the one from the box this week 😉 xx

    Fun. Moving is stressful but worth it in the end!

    • 3rd December 2014 / 10:17 pm

      Definitely! xx

    That little monster thing is very cute – but not as cute as Busby in her winter suit in the garden. Sounds like a very busy week – hopefully this one will be a bit easier on you!

    • 3rd December 2014 / 10:16 pm

      Aww bless you 🙂 thank you! xx

    • 3rd December 2014 / 10:16 pm

      It’s needed up here Lauren! Brrr!

      Cosatto HQ rocks! xx

    Just realised I linked up and ran, sorry! Wow what a busy week, Busby’s snow suit is amazing! Cosatto’s staff slide sounds amazing! Hope you have managed to get more rest this week.

    Wow super busy week but I’m so pleased the move has gone well lovely. Your day at the press event looked and sounded fun but I’m not surprised you needed that nap the next day! Never underestimate those wonderful things ha ha xx
