Like Father Like Son..

I just returned from a flying visit to Tokyo for work.  Such an amazing city and still one of my all time favourite places in the world.

I took a day flight home which was a little indulgent for a work day... I think being on a plane is one of those few times in this day and age when you can truly 'disconnect' from the world (although I know some airlines are now offering wi-fi).  I spent a lovely 7 hours on my own watching movies, eating, reading and sleeping.  It's been ages since I have done that!

I flew with ANA so they had a great selection of Japanese films and one caught my eye.  It's called "Like Father Like Son" and I loved it.  I cried.  The film picked up the Jury Prize in 2013 at Cannes and is a story about two families whose sons were switched at birth.  The film so beautifully deals with themes such as nature vs nurture and family dynamics.  As a parent, I think it definitely affected me more than it would've if I had watched it pre-baby.  Regardless of whether you are a parent or not though, I recommend you find it and watch it!

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...


Back to blogging..

And I'm back... I have found myself with some more spare time up my sleeve recently and a friend suggested that I should throw myself back into blogging again so here I am!

It's crazy that it's been almost a year since my last post. 2015 was a bit of a pretty dramatic year for us on the health front so we are hoping for a lot less drama this year!

But it will be a big year with a new home purchase and us moving in mid-year.  So that means some renovating and decorating which I will hopefully post about here.  The pinning has already begun...!

In the meantime, we just enjoyed a lovely long Easter weekend at home and hosted some friends for lunch on Easter Saturday.  First time we made a lamb roast (and it turned out great to our delight) and we also pulled out the same hot cross buns recipe that I used last year which was a hit. I think this will become an annual Easter tradition.

I really do love cooking for family and friends so I think my next hosting challenge will b…
