Managed to get 8 hours sleep last night and STILL woke up exhausted from the beginning of this week! However past Steph was excellent and I booked a massage for this evening to help me recover, woo hoo! I now feel like a completely different woman from this morning. Walking home though made me realiseContinue reading “19/08/21 – Shortening days…”
Finally the rain has stopped and the sunshine is back in all its glory. Today was tanktop weather for our lunchtime walk, AND we had a BBQ after work! It’s as if it’s y’know, actually summer time… What a joy, enough to put a massive smile on my face all day long.
It can’t possibly be, but the with this weather it certainly feels like it! I ran 10k this morning for the first time since April as I ease back into running. On the way I ran past this horse chestnut tree and look at how ready for autumn it is… I’m really hoping the sunContinue reading “08/08/21 – Autumnal run?!”
This morning Nic and I went to a lavender farm! It was on and off torrential rain but it still made for a great day out and we thoroughly got good use our of our new coats. We ate lavender meringue, drank lavender iced tea and sipped lavender hot chocolate… It felt like we’d eatenContinue reading “07/08/21 – Lush lavender”
Kicked off today with a sunny 6km run! Then after work Nic and I headed back out for a walk in the rain. Saw some gorgeous thistles on the way around and felt all the better from it once we got back!
We always have lots of butterflies visit our garden in the summer. They go absolutely wild for the mint bushes we have! It’s always fun when they turn up as it feels so summery, and makes me happy we’ve let our garden go a bit “wild” the bugs and birds are loving it!
Nic and I went on a lovely walk after work today. A big loop around our local area with snacking blackberries along the way from various bramble bushes! Such a treat. I’m working from home all this week as I don’t have any plans in town. It’s nice as I’m appreciating it more now I’veContinue reading “27/07/21 – Walking snacks”
Bit of an admin day for us today. Headed to B&Q first thing to chose the final bits for our new bathroom which is very exciting! Then it was home just in time to miss the biblical level downpour that happened over London. I got to chill out in our conservatory and just listen toContinue reading “25/07/21 – The rain has arrived”
The stars are out tonight and it’s finally a bit cooler to sleep. We’re dropping to nearly 20 degrees tonight so I’m ready for a good night’s sleep. Nic and I went out on our bikes this lunchtime for a little 4 mile razz around. Unfortunately it was also 30 degrees! So by the timeContinue reading “19/07/21 – The stars are out!”
We went on a little day trip today to St Ives to chance that sunshine! It was mostly successful apart from a brief shower. I did manage to get in a decent swim though which I’m very happy about! And just look at the glorious views we had walking into town.
