Life Lately #73

Hello lovelies,
Sorry I haven't blogged in over a week! Everything's been a bit manic - but hey ho! I'm back with an update post today. : )
So in my last "Life At The Moment" post (which I've now updated to be called Life Lately) I mentioned about the first little chicks hatching. So here's the first picture of them! Aren't they cuties!? Since posting, we now have 9 chicks hatched & more due today!
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you'll have seen I've been up to Gloucester visiting James at uni. I was greeted with this adorable teddy when I arrived on Wednesday! We spent the rest of the day shopping & buying some home ware items to brighten up his flat. First of all, this spider plant, which we named Peter, (Spiderman was called Peter Parker.. see where we're coming from..?) & he is now happily sitting in the middle of James' table, along with some cute candles from B&Q.
On Friday, we travelled up to Liverpool. For Christmas & James' 21st birthday, my parents bought him a trip for two around Anfield Stadium. He's supported Liverpool all his life but had never been to their home stadium! We stayed over night at a Travelodge near by, right next to a Toby Carvery, which I had never eaten in, but was delighted by the food (plus it's cheap as chips!) We had a roast on the Friday night & a full English on the Saturday morning before heading to the stadium. We had a guided tour by the legend himself, Phil Neal, who was absolutely lovely & animated as he showed us around the grounds. I'll do a full post on our day soon!
After the tour, we had a spare hour or so before heading back to Gloucester, so we decided to head down to The Albert Docks as one of my close friends at work had suggested it was worth seeing. It was quite a cloudy day, but we still managed to take a few snaps & have a cheeky Costa before heading back home. 
I arrived back home from Gloucester yesterday evening, to spend the rest of Mother's Day with my mum. We had a lovely dinner & watched TV.
I was also surprised with a card & some flowers from Honey (my Dachshund) that were left on my dressing table. So cute! Oh & please tell me your as in love with my new duvet set as me! Frenchie's are so adorable.
How did you celebrate Mother's Day?
Let me know if you've been to The Docks or Anfield & what you thought. : )
