It's been a busy week at work, so I was very glad to escape for the weekend to our friends' in Nottingham. They have an adorable baby girl and it was so much fun hanging out with her - we played in the park, ran amok in PC World and had lots of cuddles. It was divine. I was exhausted by the end of the day though - major props to you if you have kids! It was also fantastic to see Ashley and Kirsten - they are some of the loveliest people and I'm so glad that being with Paul means I get all these extra friends as well. What a win that is.
We stopped off at Paul's parents on Friday night for takeaway and wedding-related interrogation. Pinterest boards were shared, guest lists were debated and old wedding albums poured over. Between that and booking ourselves in to look at our preferred venue on Monday, it's all starting to feel very real!
