I’m right now sitting on the balcony in Nice, absorbing every single sunray. It’swhen I go further south I feel alive. I get an amazing feeling inside and realise that it is pure happiness. My soul will always crave the sun. It’s where I need to live one day.
The trip here went well. Jamie never went to bed after work the poor guy.There was really no point for him for him to even try. I was up at 2.30 am and had about three hours of sleep. Was planning on going to bed earlier but cleaning and packing takes its time.
Jamie surprised me by letting me open two birthday gifts a day early when I woke up! He said they were too bulky to take with us. I wasn’t sure whether to wait until we were back or not. Felt a bit like cheating :p He then said the main present I’ll get on my birthday tomorrow and I’ll get two more once we’re back home! He definitely is spoiling me… So I thought why not?
Jamie and I are a bit obsessed with Great British Bake Off. So one of the presents was one of Mary Berry’s recipe books. He knows I love all kinds of books about food. He said yes it’s not a health one but he would love for us to start baking more and who doesn’t love a bit of cake once in a while? Better to bake it yourself than buying one. Plus there are loads of amazing bread recipes in it. So yes I was very happy!
I’m really looking forward to having a proper look through it once I’m back.
My other present was a thing I’ve been wishing for for so long, a spriraliser!! I was thrilled when I realised what it was!! I cannot wait to start making courgetti meals ❤ There are so many recipes I’ve been wanting to try out. Healthy pasta here I come! Gaaah was sad to leave it behind but that’ll make it a bit easier to come home I guess…
The plan this afternoon is eventually go to the beach. Jamie’s asleep at the moment so we’ll see when that happens. We need to go grocery shopping as well.
I cannot wait to get up in the mornings and go for power walks along the beach. I’m definitely staying more active this holiday than the last, which I’m really looking forward to!
I will speak to you all later. Sunny hugs from me 🙂
