Happy Sunday guys and welcome back to (the 10th) Weekly Roundup. Now if like me this weekend has got your emotions running and feelings feeling then SNAP! Whether you’re into the Royal family or not you can’t deny that yesterdays nuptials between our very own Prince Harry and the gorgeous Meghan Markle were like something out of a fairy tale. I’m a self-confessed romantic as it is, so I’m not ashamed to say I may have shed a tear or two during the ceremony. Not only was the love between the two so visible but the bringing together of two people from two very different backgrounds and cultures made it a day in history that will change the world forever. There are to many highlights to mention but I have to give a shout out to Bishop Michael Curry who’s heart-felt sermon was unlike anything we’ve ever seen over here in the UK. It may have come as a shock to some of the more traditional church folk however the passion he exuded was undeniable.
“We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And
when we discover that, we will be able to make of this old world a new
world. Love is the only way.”
So before we get back to the wedding, I’ll quickly scan over the rest of the week. To be honest it’s been a pretty quiet one. I’ve been working from home most of the week and working out in the gym for the rest. I’m finally back with my personal trainer Jay and back to having a good routine exercise wise. I’m actually going to be running the Westminster Mile next weekend for charity alongside Sir Mo Farah…crazy! So as well as getting ready for that (it is only a mile so not much training involved haha) I’ve also been doing lot’s of spin classes along with getting my own pair of boxing gloves to use in my sessions with Jay. I also, very spontaneously booked a holiday for my mum and I in 9 days time, nothing like being last minute eh?! We’re going to Spain for four days to have a little beach break and swim in the ocean (my absolute favourite thing to do.) Other than that however this week really has been centred around the weekend so lets get back to the wedding and how, where and who I spent it celebrating with!
Most of you will already know Yasmin as she’s appeared on here a few times now but yes, I headed along to the BBC with Yasmin’s mum Colette to watch the wedding, have a picnic and listen to Yas do her show. For those of you that don’t know, Yas has her own show on BBC 1xtra everyday day (Mon-Fri) 1-4pm. Yesterday however she was in the studio for a special wedding show and we toasted the newly weds several times in the process of listening to the cracking tunes Yas was playing. After the studio we headed to the Southbank to continue our picnic as well as another 2…3…4… bottles of fizz. Annoyingly I forgot to take a picture of the picnic but trust me it was great! We literally stayed in the sunshine outside the Southbank centre for the rest of the afternoon until finally heading home around 9.30pm. We had the best day, like one of those days you just don’t want to end. We played games that literally had us all crying with laughter and I mean full on hysterical tears whilst we continued to drink bubbles to our hearts content. A perfect day for a Royal wedding and a perfect excuse to celebrate with friends.
Today I allowed myself a super lazy day, the sunshine is yet again out in full force (we have been doing very well on the weather front recently!) So I sat in the park for a couple of hours then came to my little cafe on the corner to have an iced latte and to write this post. It’s been a great week all round, culminating in the perfect weekend. I can’t wait for the week ahead, so many exciting things happening and then HOLIDAY TIME!!! Remember you can keep up with my daily goings on over on Instagram – @littlemisswinney and I shall see you back here for another post on Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by guys, enjoy the rest of your Sunday and stay safe.
