casual spring look: jeans, white blazer, grey t-shirt and hat

You know how people are always saying they like it when bloggers wear the same things over and over again, because it’s so much more “relatable” or something? 

I’m REALLY hoping people actually mean it when they say that, because oh hey, look, it’s that white blazer again! Worn with the same pair of jeans! And also the same t-shirt, hat and bag as my post from a couple of weeks ago! (Er, you’re going to be seeing that hat a LOT, by the way. Like, pretty much every single post from here on out – it’s not that I think it looks amazing or anything, it’s just that it was the only hat I had with me, and if I hadn’t worn it all the time, I’d have had a REALLY sunburnt scalp by now…) Guys, I am WINNING at the whole “wearing the same things over and over again” thing, I really am. I mean, I THINK when people say that, they probably mean they want to see the same things worn again, but in a different way… they don’t actually SAY that, though, so I’m calling this one a win, even although it totally isn’t.

Anyway, my outfit may not be the most interesting, but the location of these photos WAS pretty interesting, so I’m showing you them anyway. This is the Auditorio de Tenerife, which is located in the island’s capital city, Santa Cruz, and is home to the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra. Pretty cool, huh?

Here’s the back view:

The Auditorio de Tenerife

“It looks like a butt,” said Terry. And sure enough, once you see it, you can’t UN-see it. Sorry to lower the tone…

For those of you whose mental age is higher than ours obviously is, this building – and the area around it – is well worth a visit, if you’re ever in the area: it’s just stunning to look at, and although we weren’t allowed inside, we spent quite a bit of time just wandering around and enjoying the view. The building is right on the coast, next to the Parque Maritimo lido – which looked particulalry inviting to me, given that I’d managed to totally mess up with that whole “dressing myself” business again. GOD.

Santa Cruz, you see, is located in the north of the island: every other time we’ve been there, it’s been pretty overcast, and I’d been quite chilly the previous week, when we visited nearby Puerto de La Cruz, so this time I thought I’d be clever, and wear jeans and a blazer, rather than the sundress I’d normally have gone for. What YOU know and I obviously didn’t, however, is that “being clever” in this case would’ve meant checking the weather forecast, because yup, it was absolutely boiling. I kept my blazer on for these photos – er, because otherwise this outfit would’ve been even MORE boring – but, in a strange reversal of my usual photo-taking process, I had to take it off as soon as we were done. One day I swear to God I’ll learn how to dress for the weather: one day…

AD | We’re spending a few days at @highlandheatherlodges in beautiful Perthshire, for what Terry is optimistically referring to as his ‘birthday week’. (I say ‘optimistically’ - we’re only here for three days, and his birthday was yesterday, but don’t stop believing, Terry!)⁣
There’s a hot tub for us and a playpark for Max, so needless to say, we’re having a fantastic time, and I’m already dreading having to leave. Today’s big question: can I pass as an under-12, so I qualify for a pony ride at the nearby wildlife centre? 🤔 (On second thoughts, don’t answer that one...)⁣

AD | Time for a quick game of “Where’s Amber?”⁣
It’s another rainy Monday, so I’m throwing it back to our trip to @universalorlando ‘s amazing Volcano Bay water park last month. I’m a bit of a scaredy when it comes to water flumes, but this park had tons of stuff for pretty much everyone: plenty of rides for me, and an amazing splash pad for Max 👶In fact, I’d still be on The Fearless River right now if I possibly could be. Still, doing the laundry and turning the heating on will be just as good, right? Right?! 🌋 🏊‍♀️ .

Good news! We took Max to hospital this morning, and saw two different surgeons, who agreed there was no need to go ahead with the surgery as his lip is healing really well on its own 😅  He’ll definitely have a scar, unfortunately, but that would’ve been the case whether he’d had the surgery or not, and if it turns out to be worse than anticipated, we’ll have the option to have it corrected under local anaesthetic when he’s older. ⁣
I’m still really upset that this happened in the first place, obviously, but so relieved that we don’t have to put him through a general anaesthetic, and just incredibly grateful that it wasn’t anything worse. I know some parents have to deal with much more serious stuff than this, and my heart goes out to you all: it’s been a rough couple of days, and I’m really grateful to everyone who took the time to comment on yesterday’s post - your stories were so comforting when I was panicking yesterday ❤️ ⁣
(Old photo, obviously: every time Max sees the selfie camera, he thinks it’s going to be one of those filters where you open your mouth and something happens 😂)⁣

Totally unrelated photo, but we’ve just spent the morning in Accident & Emergency with Max, who fell on the path outside the house and split his lip open 😥 ⁣
They tried to stitch it up at A&E, but it was totally impossible with him awake, so they’ve booked him in to have it done under general anaesthetic tomorrow ... Max is absolutely fine: the bleeding stopped quickly, he doesn’t seem to be in pain, and is just his normal, happy little self. I, on the other hand, am a complete wreck: the plastic surgeon he saw today reckons if we don’t have it fixed, his lip will be crooked when it heals, but I’m absolutely *terrified* of the thought of my baby having to have a GA. ⁣
If you’re a long-time follower, you might know that I have a full-blown phobia of general anaesthetic (I literally had an elective c-section in order to eliminate the possibility of an emergency one, which might have had to be done under GA), so I just can’t get my head to accept that it’s safe and he’ll be fine 😥 ⁣
Positive stories and advice very welcome: I’m just so terrified, I can’t even imagine how to get through the next 24 hours 😥😥😥

#throwbackthursday to last week, when I needed a sunhat and SPF 50 to leave the house, rather than the current raincoat and wellies situation. Can you tell the post-holiday blues are still in full swing over here? 🌧 .

I posted this on Stories over the weekend, but he looked so cute in it I figured it deserved a spot on the grid, too! This is Max all ready for his friend Eleah’s 1st birthday party on Saturday: despite the jetlag and his continuing obsession with doors of all kinds (He had an entire soft play at his disposal, but he mostly just wanted to open and close the gate into it...) he had an absolute ball, and spent the whole drive home shouting, “HAPPY! HAPPY!” Thanks to @thestirlingstyle for a great party 🥳 🎈 🎉 . (Oh, and that’s his hairbrush in his hand - boy likes to look his best 😉)
