Keeping Up With Karen…

Keeping Up With Karen

It never fails to amaze me that on most week days I’d give (almost) anything for a few extra hours to curl up under my duvet, yet come the weekend mornings (when my late nights really are late) I spring out of bed at the crack of dawn! Take for example yesterday morning (Saturday) when I was hoovering the stairs at 8 am, just after tackling a mountain of washing. Today my eyelids opened at 7 am, I even contemplated a super early beach walk to really blow the cobwebs off. Why do these bouts of morning energy come at the weekend and not the week day’s when I need them the most?! *sigh* Is anyone else lumbered with this bizarre body clock scenario?

However, for those of you who are planning to enjoy a deliciously relaxing Sunday with your feet up and laptop open, here’s a quick run through of what’s been happening on Confetti & Curves this week…

What could be more fun that a whole day of shopping, giggles & properly catching up with my mini me after such a busy week?!
