February 2015 // Days 36 - 42
Today saw the first ever Harry Potter Book Night, an event from the publishers, Bloomsbury, that I wasn't even aware of until reading Charlene's awesome post 9 Things You Didn't Know About Harry Potter. However, I dunno if you already know this about me but I literally read the whole Harry Potter series on a loop. It was a happy accident that I was up to the last chapter of 'The Order of the Phoenix' and documented the beginning of the end for this event.
Seeing as I'm the 'girl with the camera', Mam and Dad asked me to pop up to theirs to photograph some stuff they are selling, of course where I go Baker goes and so after meeting his Granda (my Dad) from work we took the massive trek up to their house for the afternoon. We did what was needed, watched a movie on Netflix and had our dinner, all while Baker's 'I want to go home now' body clock was ticking. This is his 'please Mammy' face.
This Saturday consisted of having breakfast out with Mam, walking Baker in a completely new spot and getting a text from Mam on her way home on the bus to check out the sky. I hung out our bedroom windows for quite a while trying to photograph the completely awesome sunset - but failed to convey just how crazy it was in person. Mother nature is beautiful.
Lazy Sunday turned into Baker and I meeting my Mam and Dad for a walk along to Spittal. We popped into their 'local' for Dad to watch the Newcastle match. We almost made it to half time before Baker insisted on heading home and we had a lazy evening with Daddy!
Last minute plans to meet Claire are the best. We headed to our new favorite beach and little man had an absolute blast. There weren't nearly as many birds today as there was last time but I got a few snaps. Look out for a blog post of our winter beach adventures over on my main blog in the coming weeks.
Well. After 3 days of chest pain I finally got myself so worried that I went to the doctors. I wouldn't usually, I hate going, but with a history of heart issues in the family I wanted to make sure it was nothing to worry about. Thankfully it's nothing to do with my heart and isn't even very serious, but my goodness is it painful! Thats my diagnoses on the card.
With my recent 'scare' or not so much, as well as a weight gain of 2 stone over the past year or so, I really need to watch what I'm eating - especially my excessive intake of salt (seriously, I put it on everything).
Broccoli is one vegetable that I could live on. I love it! And think it looks so appealing with the rice and seasoning - mmmm.
