Hello Sunday, I’ve missed you and longed for you and you’ll be gone too fast.
We’re celebrating Father’s Day today with a slow Chai family day in (of course), a homemade feast, and presenting Papa Daisy with his gift (a new wheelbarrow for the vegetable garden, and lots of in-joke treats). However you’re spending today – and particularly if you find dates like these hard – I hope you have a wonderful, syrup-sweet Sunday.
Somehow this week has me feeling much lighter. Even the ceaseless rain over the past few days has helped; soft cosy vibes always bring me back to a safe place and sense of reset. There’s been plenty of journalling, reading and candle-making going on around here and I’m absolutely here for it. I’ve also found some get-up-and-go about me, which means I’ve got several blog posts written, edited and photographed! I’m really excited for the posts I have lined up and the small changes I’m making to my online bits and bobs.
Breath of the Wild is consuming me…
I borrowed a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild from a friend last week and I’m now utterly consumed by this beautiful game. For… reasons… I never managed to play this when it was released, and now I can’t imagine life without it! The art is beautiful and the gameplay often relaxing. It’s become a bit of a comfort game to me already – Zelda music is always incredible, isn’t it? No spoilers in the comments please, but I am having the best time in this stunning game. I’ll share snippets over on my gaming Instagram account, @acnh_moonacre.
Date night with my sister
This week marked a tricky date that I’ve been dying to get ‘over and done with’, and so my sister kindly took us on a sisterly date to a neighbouring town. We sipped cocktails, ate vegan burgers, gossiped and chatted, and had the best time! I recently wrote about taking yourself on a date, but I also really recommend going on a sibling date too, especially now that the world is opening up. They’re pretty incomparable!
Saturday in London
Now that I’m partially vaccinated, I feel a touch more comfortable heading out with more than one person. And so, yesterday, that’s exactly what I did! Masks packed and takeout food located, I headed into London for a stretch of hours laid out in a park with Hannah, Sarah and Sophie – three of the best people I’ve met since doing this whole blogging thing. I even managed to try Café BAO’s Salted Custard Bubble Tea, which was surprisingly delicious! Exchanging hundreds of WhatsApp messages and voice notes a day doesn’t come close to real-life conversation; I’d missed our little group so much! Whilst I returned home completely drained from both London and socialising with more than one person, it felt so good to hang out like old times and hug my best pals. I’m already looking forward to the next time!
How has your week been? Tell me something wonderful from your world.
