Last week was one of those weeks where you feel like the world is against you. Everything felt like a challenge and what could go wrong, did. Coming down with a rotten cold was the cherry on one majorly pants week. But there was a little highlight right at the very end, when three of my very favourite people returned from three very different holidays.
Mum came home after a week in rainy Spain with her sisters. My sister, Emily, made it back in one (exhausted) piece from Ibiza, and my friend Aimee returned home from an amazing trip to Singapore and Langkwai. As much as life goes on when your nearest and dearest are away, I really missed having them around and I realised just how much I rely on these ladies to get through everyday life. Even if it’s just for a quick chat or text message check in, it’s these simple and effortless interactions where you share life’s little annoyances, dilemmas and random thoughts, that keep us girlies sane on a daily basis (and our other halves blissfully unaware of how much we could be bugging them with seemingly trivial issues if it wasn’t for our female support groups!).
I had a long list of issues and dilemmas that I needed their help with, including help with my menu plan for our first Come Dine with Friends as well as their opinions as to what I should wear for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards next week…(ahhhh…!) So this week, having my ladies back most definitely made my Highlight of the Week.

Until next time,
