For Christmas 2012 Tom's parents got the family tickets to the Harry Potter Studio Tour, and very kindly included me! On Sunday we finally jumped aboard the Hogwarts' Express, which made that day one of the best in my LIFE. It also doubled up as the day I discovered Tom's fear of owls, or just birds in general. (This can be seen in a photo above). Walking down Diagon Alley, standing in the Great Hall and meeting Hedwig are just a few highlights of the day. It really is completely magical and I 100% recommend everyone to go!

My beautiful friend Jessica came to Surrey today from east London for a rural retreat. We had a 3 hour lunch at Bill's in Guildford, beautiful restaurant with a delicious menu. Post lunch we had a wonder around then stopped at the Kings Head for some wine and more talking. Naturally this was finished off with a bottle of prosecco in my back garden, along with even more talking. Completely perfect day off with a completely inspirational person.

On Friday, my mum, Derek, Tom and I went bowling. It began with me in the lead, even with my extremely alternative bowling method, in which I don't put my fingers in the holes. Mental. Usually a family outing of the bowling kind is fun, not particularly competitive etc. But you see my mum and Derek both own their own bowling shoes, and custom made balls. So it was far from acceptable for either of them to be beaten. In the second game even Tom beat me, and he really is awful at bowling. I thought he was just being modest.

I'm torn. I thought I was a bed maker, when of course I can be bothered. But recently I have been drawn towards an unmade bed. There's definitely something enticing when all the pillows are everywhere and the duvet is out of place. But the thought of coming home to mess after work is not a nice one. So torn.

Another glorious weekend spent in the steel city. On Friday I saw my friend and her stunning baby Amélie, then me and Tom went to see Eddie Izzard at the arena. The rest of the weekend we just ate really bad food, saw Tom's family, watched football and went suit shopping.

Whilst in Sheffield at the weekend I had coffee with one of my favourite people in the world (Ruth). We went to Marmadukes, one of the best places in South Yorkshire. There are so many amazing cafes in Sheffield, definitely something I'm missing living back down south. The beautiful decor, unbelievable food and free tea refills make it somewhere not to be missed.

We had the honour of celebrating the marriage of two friends. It was a lovely day spent with a lovely couple. Also managed to catch up with a lot of friends and dance to Carly Rae and Taylor Swift. Dream.
Dear Nate and Lucy, live happily every after!
