Yeah so I missed a week. New job, commute….blah blah blah. Anyway I’ve had a weeks holiday this week and this is how it looked!
For lack of a wolf suit…. Where the wild things are t shirt
Reunited with my boys
Attempt at chevron nails, almost a Pinterest fail.
Trip to Brownsea Island.
Lotta tapas and wine
Carrot cake and chocolate
And a little flashback to 5 years ago…..shall I go back to brunette?
Well this week I’ve mainly been….
(Ignore James non detox lunch on the left)
I followed the Nikki Sharp of Stay Sharp and Be Strong
5 day detox programme which costs about £5….if you are considering doing it…just do it, I’ve loved it!
Also running…a lot….now sat with an ice pack on my foot again….
Also admiring the scenery around my mums house
Also clearing my desk after 4 years in the same job….
Yes my locker was full of food!
Also spending time with these little guys….
This is what Bank Holidays were made for….. I usually work them
Leisurely sunny breakfasts
Girl and boy lunches.
Tea, cake and Bond…. Cake not pictured….
Boys on the sofa….
This week has actually had a few more highlights than last week….cue collective sigh of relief!
Alcoholic dandelion and burdock
Naughty dinner in my favourite chilled bar
Monday night mojitos and brownies
Lunch by the river
Lovely leaving present
Pug jumper, mac purchases and a lovely print. I didn’t buy the picture or the jumper.
Pretty bed at my mums.
Well if I thought not much happened last week then this week was much worse!
I might have to stop these fascination insights into my life until I actually start doing something other than moving stuff and working.
Make up storage. Done. Despite rediscovering all this lot, this week I’ve mainly worn 2 products.
New sofa. Plus cat and man. They aren’t new.
Adding glitter to photos! Hello glitter nebula.
Triple shot Starbucks.
Trying to mend a running injury with rosé.
Still ran on it though….
Rediscovering these 2 tunes.
Sunny Friday evenings.
Hitting 1000 page views on here. This may take a negative hit after this post!
Well this week has been pretty uninspiring, I’ve been ill and moving house still.
Here is the best of the bunch….
Doing my hair properly and wearing show orchid to work for the day.
Cat v Moth. There was a huge moth in the bedroom the other night, James decided to try to awaken the cat’s hunting instinct…..basically a 1st Maine Coone was terrified by the flying thing then tried to cuddle it….soppiest animal ever!
In other news we went to Ikea. This make up storage was designed by Magnus something or other. This giant ginger cat is also called Magnus. Heaven sent box.
James created me this funky jewellery holder from one of our ornaments.
He’s the cornerstone of my little dressing table area (the one bit of the flat which is sorted)
Finally getting an iPhone and downloading the Nike+ running app. I’ve run nearly 20k in August, some not logged on this app but its brilliant.
What wasn’t brilliant was running 5km when I wasn’t feeling great yesterday morning. But still the beach looked pretty.
Healthy rice cakes for breakfast pre late shift.
It’s just gone 5am and here is my view. I’m about to go to work and the sun is just coming up…..pretty eh?
So what’s been baking your biscuits this week? Do you love flat pack as much as my cat?
Today I’m feeling pretty sorry for myself. I’m moving house and waiting to start a new job so life is a little tense at the moment. Yesterday I spent the day packing my flat into boxes (or the bin) while my lovely mum tried to match up all my odd socks…. In typical me style I’ve woken up this morning with no voice and been awake since 5am thanks to an over active brain and some seagulls having a party. I’m working til 9pm tonight and generally feel full of woe!
So here is what I’d rather be doing (images all from we heart it)
Building a blanket fort
Spending all day in my PJs (hell if I looked like this girl in them I’d go to work in them)
Watching some feel good films
Having tomato soup and a cheese toastie for lunch
Having marshmallows, hot chocolate and pic and mix sweets.
Followed by a bubble bath
Then mac and cheese for dinner!
The cheese and sugar theme may explain why I don’t look so good in my pyjamas! But there you have in, instant comfort in a few easy steps….I’m hoping James will recreate that blanket fort for me on Sunday…..
What’s your cure for feeling sorry for yourself?
Is mac and cheese the cure for all ills?
