15/08/22 – The aftermath…

I’m covered in so many bruises from yesterday. Once I got home I had dinner and then slept for 10 hours! I was exhausted from the weekend. Today I felt a lot better but still very achy, and a bit slow brained this morning. Nic and I did go for a lovely hours walk after work to stretch our legs. I spent a lot of it nibbling on various blackberry bushes as we walked. And then eyeing up these lovely pears that were sadly out of reach…

14/08/22 – Second Tough Mudder!

She’s only gone and done it again! Second Tough Mudder and it was a SLOG in the 35 degree heat. I properly dehydrated myself to the extent that I thoroughly enjoyed the water obstacles. I’m really pleased I did it though, as hard as it was running in the relentless heat, I still had a lovely time with some friends from work.

13/08/22 – Ready to be tough and muddy

Here’s my outfit test for tomorrow’s Tough Mudder! I’m a little bit nervous as I’m much weaker than I was when I last did it, but it’s a bit shorter as I’m doing it with people from work and I’m a lot stronger in the mind now! I’m sure it’ll be fun! Wish me luck!

11/08/22 – Team night out

I had a lovely night out tonight with some of the people in my current client team. After a long week so far at work it was lovely to unwind with some drinks and pizza near work. I feel like I say it all the time but London is HOT right now and I’m really feeling it. Very excited for the cooling rain to come next week.

10/08/22 – Big moon!

Pretty pleased with this photo I took of the moon tonight. It’s the clearest I think I’ve ever taken and now I’m dying to buy a telescope…

Today was another hot day in London. But we did get out at lunchtime to go to Sainsbury’s and the local coffee shop so that was lovely. I need to remember how I feel now when I start to begrudge the cold wet weather of autumn we will eventually have.

09/08/22 – Date night!

I decided this afternoon that Nic and I needed a lovely evening out in the sunshine. So at 5.30 we packed up from work and headed out for cocktails and an Italian dinner. It was absolutely delicious, and as an added bonus, the restaurant played the entirety of ABBA Gold! So we spent a lot of the evening trying to remember all of their number 1 hits before moving onto doing the same for the Beatles, singing all the ones we could remember whilst walking home. It was a really lovely evening.

08/08/22 – Day in the office

We’re in for another batch of sunny days here in London. Today the heat was full on when I stepped out of the air conditioned office for lunch. I went in today just for a change of pace but I’m exhausted now and hoping for a long sleep tonight to make up for the recent weeks of galavanting. Here’s a photo of me on the sunny tube home after work.

07/08/22 – Back to London (again!)

And just like that I’m back in London again. The journey home took much less time than Friday’s trip up – about three hours less! The traffic was definitely on our side and we made it home in excellent time, Hilary doing all the driving whilst I counted Teslas (there are so many now!). I’ve had a wonderful weekend but I’m also very happy to be home. These last few weeks have been non-stop and I’m now excited to chill out with Nic and recover a bit.

06/08/22 – North Wales day out

We had such a lovely day today touring around North Wales taking in the lovely sites. We went to Llandudno which is now one of my favourite places and i definitely will visit again with Nic next year for a longer stay! It’s been so nice hanging out with Nana and Hilary. We then went on to have afternoon tea together and finally chip shop chips for dinner!
