(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….

Saturday summary number 10

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.

20130816-210222.jpg

Make up storage. Done. Despite rediscovering all this lot, this week I’ve mainly worn 2 products.

20130816-210337.jpg

New sofa. Plus cat and man. They aren’t new.

20130816-210442.jpg

Adding glitter to photos! Hello glitter nebula.

Saturday summary number 9

Well this week has been pretty uninspiring, I’ve been ill and moving house still.

Here is the best of the bunch….

20130810-051539.jpg
Doing my hair properly and wearing show orchid to work for the day.

20130810-051636.jpg
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!

20130810-051836.jpg

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.

20130810-051959.jpg

James created me this funky jewellery holder from one of our ornaments.

20130810-052117.jpg

He’s the cornerstone of my little dressing table area (the one bit of the flat which is sorted)

20130810-052206.jpg

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.

20130810-052325.jpg

What wasn’t brilliant was running 5km when I wasn’t feeling great yesterday morning. But still the beach looked pretty.

20130810-052431.jpg

Healthy rice cakes for breakfast pre late shift.

20130810-052508.jpg

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?

Blues run the game

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

20130807-103643.jpg

Spending all day in my PJs (hell if I looked like this girl in them I’d go to work in them)

20130807-103741.jpg

Watching some feel good films

20130807-103815.jpg

Having tomato soup and a cheese toastie for lunch

20130807-103857.jpg

Having marshmallows, hot chocolate and pic and mix sweets.

20130807-103936.jpg

20130807-103949.jpg

20130807-103959.jpg

Followed by a bubble bath

20130807-104029.jpg

Then mac and cheese for dinner!

20130807-104359.jpg
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?
