Not much in the way of reading, reviewing or blogging in general has happened this week as things have been busy both at work and in my personal life. Leaving aside work, Thursday was my 26th birthday! I had a quiet evening in with my family - we ordered take-out and relaxed, perfect. This weekend I've been out and about a bit more; one of my presents from my sister was a cupcake decorating course as she knows that I love to bake.
The course itself was a lot of fun. I enjoy making cakes but up until now have been terrible at the decoration, my buttercream always goes too runny and my cakes end up looking like a slodgy mess. It was good to learn how to do it properly although I don't think I will be creating sugarcraft blossoms or bows again any time soon!
And then this morning, I've been reflecting on life in general (am I the only one that does that near birthdays?) and taking some time to think. All in all, I'm very content with how life is going at the moment. I have a job that I enjoy, I'm newly married and I enjoy living where I do. 2012 is a bit of a breather year for us - in 2011 we planned our wedding and in 2013 we hope to buy our first house. At the moment we are just relaxing at home, saving all the money we can towards our deposit and enjoying being married before we get into all the house buying stuff that will come later. I like to think of it as a year long holiday from major life events.
How has your week been this week?
