MY PERFECT DAY!

MY PERFECT DAYIMG_0667

As much as I love dressing up & going out, as someone who leads a very busy life my perfect day is a Sunday at home with my family.

Being the business owner of a Theatre school I work most evenings during the week & all day Saturday so I very much look forward to my favourite day of the week which is Sunday, especially if we have plans to just stay at home & around our village. The kids are often busy on Sunday’s with various hobbies & my work can often run into Sunday’s too so when I see a free Sunday coming up in the diary I’m a very happy girl!

I very rarely get a lie in so it’s nice to just get an extra hour then Tony will bring me a coffee up to me in bed & occasionally breakfast in bed. A fresh coffee is the first thing I have to have in the morning to get me going. IMG_0672

I like to put TV on & usually have something like Sunday Brunch on in the background and once I’m up I like to have another coffee & read a Sunday paper.

My kids are so busy during the week so if we have a rare Sunday off I let them do their own thing in the morning. Breakfast will be quite simple such as cereals, toast or sometimes a bacon or sausage sandwich as a treat!

IMG_0677I will then have a shower & I love to use Elemis Sharp shower in a morning as its so fresh and really wakes me up. Hair, makeup and outfit on and I’m ready for the day. Although I won’t wear as much makeup as I do in the week I still like to wear some as I love makeup & it makes me feel good. My Sunday outfit will be much more casual such as jeans & a casual top.

I love to potter around the house on a Sunday making it as nice as possible and I always have candles lit to make the whole house smell amazing. My new favourites at the moment are from The White Company. In the Spring I always have fresh daffodils in the house as they’re my favourite flower and make me feel happy & ready for the new beginnings of Spring. IMG_0678

Lunch will just be a simple sandwich, soup or salad for us all as we eat our main meal around 5pm.

IMG_0674I’ll often prep the dinner after lunch so it’s all ready to go later on then it’s time for a lovely family walk with our beautiful Cavachon puppy Dora! Walks are a great time to get fresh air, exercise and spend time talking without the distractions of technology.

After a good walk, as I make dinner, Tony may do some bits around the house & garden, Max will have a bit of time either playing outdoors or on his Xbox and Isabelle will usually be found filming a video or watching ‘Friends’. They’re so busy in the week that its nice for them to just do their own thing if we’re at home.

Roast dinner is a must on a Sunday & our favourite is a roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings. I love cooking for my family & just wish I had a bit more time to try new things. IMG_0643.JPG

One of my favourite things on a Sunday is then putting on some comfortable loungewear in the evening, all ready to relax with candles on, a nice glass of wine and Sunday night TV. I love a good drama on a Sunday evening and still very much miss ‘Downton Abbey’ & ‘Mr Selfridge’ but I’m currently enjoying ‘Call the Midwife’ as my Sunday evening viewing.

  2. I can totally relate – my perfect day is a Sunday at home with my hubby. I worked a 10-hour shift four days a week and I really love to just chill on Sunday. Comfy loungewear, candles, wine – makes my day perfect too!
