Weekly Roundup – Rome & Easter …

Hey everyone … so this week’s post is a couple days late and we’re actually really busy today so this wont be a long one … mostly photos from our trip to Rome and some other bits …

After a very stressful run through Stanstead Airport we all finally made it onto our flight to Rome … I spent the time starting a new pair of socks …

We got to our apartment a little early for check in so we settled down at the coffee shop across the road from the apartment to kill the time … they do good coffee!

I loved our first floor apartment … it was a very typical old style Italian building in the heart of historic Rome …

Thankfully we got the airport on our way home much earlier than on the way out and we all got through security with no issues at all … I will be doing a separate post about our trip to Rome once I get the photos edited!

Yesterday Perry finally got to London in the morning and I was really excited to see him … My mum organised an easter egg hunt in the back garden which was lots of fun …

Otherwise we didn’t do much else yesterday … popped into Harrow to get a few bits then hung out with family for the evening and I did some more work on my shawl pattern before bed …

Today we are heading down to Perry’s parents for the rest of the Easter weekend before heading back up to London … Perry has classes starting on Tuesday and I head back to Bahrain Tuesday evening … I can’t wait to go home and hug my fluffy babies … its been too long!

Thanks for tuning in …

Till next time …
