Bank holidays were made for…

This is what Bank Holidays were made for….. I usually work them

Leisurely sunny breakfasts

Pub gardens

Girl and boy lunches.

Tea, cake and Bond…. Cake not pictured….

Boys on the sofa….


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


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?

It’s the freakin’ weekend….

Despite the frankly roasting temperatures I was not too upset to be working this entire weekend as my first one back from holiday.
Mainly as due to living in a beach resort means that the slightest hint of sunshine causes a flood of people to the beach meaning its about as peaceful as a football match. Last weekend it took people 6 hours to get in and out of Bournemouth and this weekend hotel rooms were going for £300 per night.
I’m off tomorrow so I’ll be making the most of everyone having gone back to work.

Tonight I was made homemade gazpacho and chicken and pancetta salad for when I finished work.
It was amazing!
I do do other stuff except eat and go to work I promise I just do more eating and working….

I’ve just painted my nails in Papaya by Barry M which is a lovely peachy orange, while accidentally capturing this awesome photo of Jeremy Clarkson!

Saturday summary

This week has been incredibly busy. I feel like all I do is work, go to the gym and sleep somedays. Anyway here are some things that have brightened up the hamster wheel this week.
