This year is rolling by gently and swiftly, all at once.

It seems like moments ago we were deep in the January greys, and spring and summer felt like a million years away.  And now it’s April, and life is full of sunshine and greenery and the lightness of spring mornings.  Similarly, it seems like a heartbeat ago that we got engaged and the wedding was an age away….tomorrow we will have been engaged a year and the wedding is four months away.  The house is filling up with stationery and gifts and ribbons; truly the days are long but the years are short!

Here we are deep in my Easter break.  This year is especially decadent, with a three and a half week break in classes.  Naturally, I’m reading, planning and sorting plenty in that time, but the absence of the 5.30am alarm, heels and dozens of work emails a day is bliss.  I’m a very decent housewife it turns out!  I like cooking, cleaning, volunteering, reading and socialising…but it’s always nice to be in the classroom too.  I’ll be in a lot of next week to get ready for the always busy summer term.

So that’s us – posts to come soon on my adventures in homemaking, our trip to Madrid, wedding planning, and cats (hey, you know me!).  Have a wonderful weekend, all!
