Aaah, ok, I confess the plan to blog lots whilst Will was away didn’t really happen. A few other chores were also left undone when I got the opportunity to have three of my oldest friends plus my friend A’s baby round for a ‘teenage’ evening mid week. It was teenage in the sense that we know each from then and we ate a lot of teenage sleepover food of crisps, chocolate and pizza and watched awful tv. It was fab though! I’ll do better on the blogging front this week – I am determined.
Was a bit frustrating to be honest, as I had to cancel our lovely fun Saturday plans at the last minute due to feeling unwell (again at a weekend!). I was supposed to be going down to London to see the poppies at the Tower of London and catch up with my bridesmaid J, who has just got engaged herself. I was then supposed to join Will at his University friends’ birthday party. As I couldn’t go, I thought I would change the style of this post for one week only, and make a little list of a few of littlest things that have been making my life very happy lately. And the littlest things that are often the best things of course.
– Wonderful tea: I have been meaning to cut back on caffeine for a while, as at work especially I can easily end up having six cups of tea a day and then a few at home which I think is a bit excessive (and I love tea so I wish I didn’t have to say it). I haven’t found a herbal tea I like to drink regularly so I am thrilled to have discovered Kandula Tea chamomile and rose flavour. So tasty and relaxing and I haven’t got bored of it yet – even drinking it at lots of different times of day.
– Pom poms: I bought a set of pom pom makers a month or so ago and have been having great fun this weekend making lots of different sized pom poms for Christmas bunting. So quick, easy and fun.
– Cinema: Will and I have got unlimited cinema passes recently and it is so wonderful to go and see films whenever we want without feeling like you’re wasting money. It broadens what we go and watch as well which is good as we have very different tastes in films
– Not spending any money: the above list may look like a bit of a ‘things I’ve enjoyed buying’ consumerist dream, but actually this weekend we haven’t bought anything aside from food, which doesn’t really count as stuff for the sake of it. And it’s a very nice feeling to know that the simple things like a Sunday morning walk, good books and spending time together at home are just as enjoyable as buying ‘things’.
The week to come…
I am looking forward to blogging of course!
