So the amazing Jenny (of Reading the End) has this going for Sundays:
The only guidelines are that you write about something that kept you on your feet that week, whether that’s a person that inspired you, an action you took that you’re proud of, a book or movie or TV show that nourished your heart, a self-care strategy that worked for you, a goofy event or moment that brought you joy. Whatever it is, every Sunday, I want you to tell me something that matters to you.
And this week, it’s easy because my parents arrived from Singapore yesterday! On my Dad’s 70th birthday!
We didn’t really make proper plans for yesterday as I figured, jet lag, long flight equals a birthday dinner at home. I had ribeyes and all the fixings for a steak dinner ready. But then they were all raving and ready to go out for a nice dinner. Luckily we managed to secure a last-minute table at a little French(ish) local restaurant which has been around for ages, but that we had never been to.
And it was lovely. It’s never easy to go out for dinner with young kids and while my kids are relatively well-behaved, they do get fidgety especially if the food takes a while.
Luckily no drama ensued, we had a nice meal, and the restaurant provided a cute special birthday dessert.
Earlier in the afternoon, we already had some cake though! I made a (very rich) chocolate stout cake. I really suck at decorating cakes though…
