You'll probably have seen that we have had a little break to the Isle of Wight at the beginning of the month, which you can read about here and here. It was so nice to get away and chill, and I guess it set us up for a month of taking it a little easier. This year as a whole has been so busy so calming it down was really needed.
^^yes they are glow sticks in Danns stretched ear!^^
That same weekend we went to a friends 30th birthday party. Ibiza in a back garden in October - it was an unusual theme, but really worked and the birthday boy seemed to enjoy himself! Plus it was so good to catch up with old friends, whom we haven't seen in what feels like forever. It was the perfect reminder of why we love our friends. It doesn't seem to matter how long we go without seeing each other, we always manage to pick right up like we saw each other last week. They've been our friends the entire time I've known Dann, and knew him from his school days. They are true friends, and we are making a firm decision to make more effort to see each other more in the future.
Having so much chill time means lots of home cooking and cat cuddles and we've certainly been making the most of it! As you've probably seen from my many recent foodie posts, we love our kitchen. It's gigantic which really helps, and we have so many odds and ends that we are putting to use at the moment.
