So Nikki here with this milestone post – Monday Sevens #100! That’s quite a few weeks of posting!
Although we might not have managed a post last week (I do have good reason though!) so here is a little catch up of some things we’ve been up to over the last few weeks. I hope to do a bit more of a recap post at some point soon as well!
Well the last 2 weeks have been a mix of crazy busy working and comparatively blissful relaxing and doing whatever I want to!
This week I actually handed in my PhD thesis!!!!!!!! 😀 (okay so this is only the copy for examination…but I am soooo relieved to have finally got that far! It’s been exceptionally tough over the last 4 years, but now the end is actually in sight!
Three copies printed (plus one for me) – this took over half an hour on some pretty industrial printers! Sorry trees…
All bound and handed in… It looks pretty boring on the outside. I mean it’s also pretty boring on the inside…
So that’s was by far the biggest thing to happen for quite a while. But was else did we get up to?
I spent far too long sat in front of what my friend called ‘mission control’ but hopefully it will be a few weeks before I have to sit down and do any more work.
I also decided I needed a little bit of a pick me up and fresh feeling after our grandfather passed away so I got rather a large haircut… (I had been thinking of it for a while, but just decided to actually do it recently). This was almost 18″ of hair cut off!!
Pippa was away for a few days sailing, she even got to stay in a hotel one night instead of on the boat. In a very quaint hotel on the island, definitely worth it for the breakfast, smoked salmon and scrambled egg…!
She also did some sailing for fun for the first time in a long time! Back racing for the warsash spring championships and they won both days of the weekend, some nice champagne to go in the drinks cupboard for the end of season party.
Naturally we’ve been celebrating the fact that I have got my thesis written! Lots of champagne has been drunk, nice food has been eaten and cocktails with friends. 🙂 and of course lunch at IKEA…
We’re also both taking part in me-made-may (#mmmay) this year so expect some round up posts about what we’ve been wearing. This is rather difficult on my part as most of my makes are either bags or latin dresses… so I’ve been trying to make a few more items that I can wear on a day to day basis.
This bank holiday weekend has also been absolutely glorious (and I’m so glad I’m not still writing!!) It’s been filled with sewing, gardening, enjoying drinks in the garden and the tastiest homecooked rotisserie chicken.
Hope you guys have all had a wonderful long weekend (in the UK) and hopefully good weather elsewhere. 🙂
