Our weekend in pictures


Ever have those weekends that just are not so perfect?

This weekend was pretty odd. We were all totally cranky for no real reason at all. It was supposed to be one of those lovely Saturday mornings, we needed to go pick up my now resized engagement ring and grab some brunch while we were at it. Afterwards we had plans to go buy our bands (I needed to wait to see how many carats (totally almost wrote carrot) my ring is so my band could match, so much to learn about rings when you get married, who knew!).

Anyway, nothing went wrong but we just were all in a stupid foggy grumpiness. Wilf had a meltdown about getting out the pushchair to go on the bus (he said he just wanted to sleep which didn't bode well for the rest of the day). He made loud noises in the cafe and wanted to eat spoonfuls of butter (eew) and was very vocal about being cross about not being able to. I was a little stressed about work deadlines and then when Tom started talking about wedding stuff I just burst into tears which was a surprise to us all I think. I confessed I was feeling a little overwhelmed about the whole thing and we talked about how we could resolve it. Really that should have been the point we turned things around but for some reason we just spent most of the rest of the weekend just being a bit irritable with each other.

After choosing our bands we headed to The Bird Cage for cake and coffee. Our guests are being sent here after the registry office and before our reception whilst we take wedding pictures so we wanted to try out a few of their cakes (which FYI are gooood). There's nothing more disappointing than not being able to enjoy good cake because you are all a bit peeved off and try and we might we just had to call our day a day and head home and hope that we could all be friends on Sunday.


But look! My ring!

On Sunday we tried to scrabble back what was left of the weekend and took a trip to the park and got on with housework but still in a bit of a fug. I hate it when you feel grumpy on a weekend as it's just feels like such a waste. Thankfully as the day was drawing to an end we decided to make one last go of it and a walk around our neighbourhood (and stop off in our local pub!) and we were able to snap out of it. We walked back with Wilf singing songs and Tom and I talking excitedly about how lovely it will be to see all our friends and share our special day with them.

I love spending time with these guys, even when I don't if you know what I mean. That's whats great about family sometimes. 


Tell me, what do you do when you are having one of those days that seems to be going wrong for no reason at all?

Sometimes homemade cake really is the only answer, with a mug of tea of course!

Am off to make some scones right now :)

I often find that reading calms me down when I feel generally a bit bleurgh, or just leaving the house and doing something distracting.

A lovely honest post Fritha, sometimes you can just have 'one of those days' - I get like this occasionally, when deep down I know how lucky I am but I just feel a bit out of sorts for no reason- we are all allowed to feel like this time. Your wedding sounds amazing, can't wait to see the photos. x

We tend to put some music on and read. Somehow it lifts the mood.

I totally love the idea of the lomo instant, my husband has the diana and adores it, so if I won I would give it to him to play with.

urgh I had one of those days today. Was feeling rather low this morning so decided to pop to a morning yoga class to make me feel better only to find I kept feeling like bursting into tears during the class. I came home and read my book in a hot bath and then watched a few episodes of one of my favourite comedy shows which perked me up. Of course all work and chores went out the window but I think I just needed a day to myself to unwind.

Lomo Lubitel 166+. A Lubitel was my first 2 1/4 camera when I was a youngster.

days like this are rubbish, aren't they. i find it best to try to not dwell, and get on with things, and appreciate the little good things if you can. ps. your riiiiiing! <3

It's so unusual to see you in jeans. We've had a fair few of those "in a funk" weekends. I know what you mean, it feels such a waste of the time together. But alas, part of life, eh.

We definitely have weekends like that, the worst is if we don't plan something to do and end up trying to decide then all getting bored and grumpy, once that's happened it's pretty hard to snap out of it! Wine definitely helps though ;) x

Katie M said...

I love all the Diana range cameras, been wanting one for ages :)

Sam Williams said...

I really want a Lomo Lubitel 166+

We very often have those days too! I was offered a membership to the National Trust for my birthday so we tend to go to one of their sites whenever we just need to get out the house and the fresh air always helps! There are so many places near Bristol I would definitely recommend it!


ps: gorgeous ring!! Congratulations! x

Sarah @ DaydreamsofSummertime said...

I love the honesty of this post, we all have days and even weeks like that sometimes. I know that sometimes I just wake up and feel grumpy for no real reason and it can take a while for me too get over it! Love the ring by the way, its so gorgeous!x

Katherine said...

We get outside and Bagl's lifted mood definitely helps ours. Wedding planning can get a bit much, even though it's for a fun thing. hope this weekend is better!

Laura Rocksteady said...

I totally know those kind of weekends - when everything just gets on top of you and everyone is in a bit of a bad mood and a toddler tantrum on top of work etc is the last thing you need, plus I can only imagine all the wedding stuff you have to go through, but all will work it's way out in the end. Love the ring by the way - so beautiful
