The five best bits: an amazingly last-minute Sunday night barbecue with all my favourite treats. We even had a bit of sunshine! + attending a screening for upcoming BBC drama The White Queen. It’s based on the brilliant Philippa Gregory’s books and is just incredible + a cheeky trip to the Pizza Hut buffet. SO UNHEALTHY but I just couldn’t resist + seeing the lovely Bems after far too long + The new Star Trek. Incredible.
On the agenda: I’m heading to the Royal Chelsea Flower Show tomorrow for the first time, which I’m told is going to be incredible. Other than that it’s going to be a seriously busy week at work – lots of people are away on holiday, others are away on work trips and I’ll be trying to hold the fort by myself. Eeeep.
News flash: Barbecues and Pimms are back in my life and I couldn’t be more excited. Summery foodstuffs get in my face.
Pause for thought: This week was, in a word, difficult. Things were even busier than usual in the office and, while that in itself wouldn’t have taken too much of a toll, my week was topped off with a seriously tough task that really challenged me on both a personal and a professional level. I know that there are lots of people who have things to say about the decisions that I have made in the last 48 hours and I really do wish that I had the opportunity to explain myself in full to each and every one of them. Sadly we don’t always get the chance to tell the true story in as much detail as we wish we could and, in this case, I fear I may never get the chance to tell my side of things. But, as hard as the past few days have been, I’ve learnt some seriously important lessons and I’m grateful that I had so many people reach out and offer their support. To all of you, you know who you are, thank you so much. I can’t express how much your kindness has meant.
Now on to a new week…
