Since I’m away this week and we have a load of work being done to the house, Nic has his very own bachelor pad for the week so he can work! It’s absolutely adorable and just ideal for what he needs. We feel as ready as we can be for this upcoming hectic week…
I had a lovely 16 mile cycle this morning. It felt very Autumnal and beautiful with all the orange leaves. Then later on Liv came over for a catch up sleepover! It was a wonderful chance to fill her in on everything that’s been happening with me recently and get up to date on her news too. Another really nice day (or maybe I’m just a lot happier now I’ve left my job!)
After finishing off a bit of freelance work this morning, Nic and I headed to Bromley for the afternoon! We went to GBK for a cheeky burger and then picked up a couple bits and bobs in the town. It’s day two of leaving my last job and I’m feeling amazing. I’ve had a wonderful day and I still have seven more weeks before I start my new job! A true lady of leisure.
Despite leaving my main job yesterday, I still have other freelance work to do today, but I’m perfectly happy with that as I’m loving that project right now. It also means I can do fun design work but also spend an hour and a half eating lunch in the park with Nic in the autumn sunshine! Best of both worlds I say. I am one happy Steph once more.
I finished at my job today!! Apart from some freelance work I now have two months off before I start my new role and I’m beyond excited for it, both the break and the new job!
To top off an excellent day, Nic and I went to our friends Nat and Dan’s for dinner tonight and it was so delicious, and so much fun! I’m ready to relax a bit and just take some time to decompress.
Today was none stop meetings. It was a busy busy busy one, but I got there in the end. Nic and I had pizza for dinner and then I finally got a chance to read some of my latest book… Les Mis! I’m now 5% in so apparently only have 67 hours to go(!) Wish me luck!
It felt well and truly autumnal with our post work walk today! And not the good crispy kind… We still made it out, got soaked fetching chips for tonight’s tea, but then we got all cosy and warm once we were back home, which makes it all worth it…. sort of…
I went on a lovely 14 mile Autumnal bike ride today! The weather was gorgeous. I then went on a lovely walk with Nic in the afternoon before making apple compote with apples our nextdoor neighbour dropped round! It’s been a very wholesome and seasonally apt day for me and I’ve loved every second of it.
Nic’s parents came down to visit us today! We went out for a lovely lunch in Richmond then headed to the Tate Modern for the day. We saw some incredible and timeless classics, and of course a few pieces that spurred the old “how do you even quantify what art is?” discussion. But it wouldn’t be the Tate without having it of course!
I had a lovely day off work today. I went for a massage then met Nic and Nat for lunch. The rest of the day was reading and relaxing. All pretty chilly and now I still have the weekend ahead of me! Lovely stuff.
