Here's looking to you, March

Not the most exciting post title, but it does the job. I thought I'd wrote something like this for February, when instead I'd wrote a little condensed version for each month instead. Always cutting corners, what am I like? Anyhoo, never one to back down from a great idea (sure), let's see what awesome stuff I have planned for March!


I love birthdays, I think you all know by now, and March is practically bursting at the seams with birthdays. Both of my parents have March birthdays, and it's also Joe's mam's birthday too! Hopefully my dad will be travelling down to Somerset for his birthday weekend and we'll get to do something fun with him then. We're going for a meal with Joe's mam in the middle of the month but I'm going to surprise her with a cake on her actual birthday. Not that it'll be a surprise, as I'm always the Birthday Cake Baker. Unluckily for my own mam, as we just visited, she's just getting a card in the post. Bad daughter points for me! 

Pancake Day!
Tuesday is pancake day! I'm definitely going to be helping myself to plenty of pancakes, and seeing as Joe is still on his work holiday, he can make me them all day! What a lucky chap.

Deadlines! (Clearly not very awesome)
I actually have a deadline as close as Wednesday and I have quite a lot of work to do. Isn't this always the case? I surprise myself with my bad time-keeping skills, I really do. I'm sure I've got a few more deadlines this month, in the form of presentations and such, but I'm less worried about them. 

Mothering Sunday!
Oh yeah, another time in the year when I get presents, what's not to love? If you just ignore the fact that I'll be at work...

Festival No.6 Headliner Announcement!
Finally, Festival No.6 are announcing their first headliner for this years event! Yay! With Glasto just announcing Dolly Parton and Blondie, I'm wondering if FN6 will go with some golden oldies or announce some young hip thing. I've got my fingers crossed for Wild Beasts, Hot Chip, Prince or Morrissey. Can you imagine?! I'd die. 

So that's pretty much it for this month. Hopefully I won't be too quiet on the blog front, I only posted five times in February, which is pretty rubbish! Have you got anything planned for March?

  1. I'm so excited about pancake day, it's one of my favourite days of the year (is that a bit sad?). In March I'm mostly looking forward to a tour of the Gherkin and RCA Secret, so hopefully a fairly relaxed but good month.

    1. Ooh, that sounds like fun! No way, pancake day should be a national holiday! :)

  2. Sounds like a great month other than the deadlines! I'm looking forward to Pancake Day, too. Must try and think of some yummy combinations for Lucas to eat and also practice my flipping--normally Dave's job!

    It's Dave's birthday this month so I am on cake duty. I also need to think of a present for my 3 year old niece...I am always crap at girl presents!

    1. I don't like buying little girl gifts as they're always so 'pink'. Maybe get her a little doctors kit with a stethoscope and arm band thingy?

  3. So many birthdays to celebrate! Bet you'll run out of flour ;) Have the best time, and try not to let the deadlines get to you xx Rebecca - UK fashion blog

    1. Thanks Rebecca, I do love a good birthday celebration so hopefully they'll keep me sane over the deadlines! xx

  4. I only have one birthday to celebrate, so not too bad ;) good luck with your deadlines! xx

  5. I got so excited about March! It's my favourite month I have 8 birthdays this month including my own! But Pancake day! I'm so upset that it's over for another year!
    Enjoy March!

    1. And it's your birthday today - yaaaaay! :) xx
