There’s nothing quite like a sunset stroll to calm down after a busy day at work. And this evening, that’s just what mum and I did. We popped down the bay to walk on the waterfront for an hour just nattering away as the sun dipped below the horizon. I even managed to get some good wildlife photos so that’s an added bonus! A great way to wind down.
Back at work today! Kicked the day off with a 5km run, then a full day of designing without any meetings so it was abnormally productive!
We then had Helen round tonight for an exceptional long overdue catch up in the garden. It was so wonderful nattering after so long. During the evening we heard some rustling in the bushes so we went to investigate only to find this guy!
I really can’t explain how much I’m loving the different scenery right now. Just look at that view!
I’m trying to take more time to listen to the birds, and really soak up these different experiences during my little break in Wales with mum.
I’ve had a lovely day today! Mum and I went on a really nice 9km run in the sunshine. Then I headed off for my first massage of the year!! It was amazing and I feel so good for it already. Then we got Reggie the car washed and chilled out for the evening. One of those days where you get lots done and yet also have a really nice day.
What a joy it is to be somewhere other than Thornton Heath for a change! And you’d struggle to do better than Mid-Wales on a day like today. The extra bonus was seeing the little lambs frolicking around!
I’ve made it to Wales. After four hours of driving I’m officially bubbled with mum for the next week and a bit! I’m absolutely shattered from today so hoping for a good night’s sleep tonight after a really lovely afternoon catching up with mum. Nos da!
I’m off to Wales to bubble with my mum! I can’t wait to see her, it’s all so exciting after many months apart. I’m all packed and raring to go! It’s time to celebrate two birthdays, Christmas and Easter in one go – bring on the bubbles!
Our latest GoodClub order arrived today. It’s a zero waste service we’ve been using. You get things delivered in tubs, decant them out and then return all the tubs and packaging. I do it because it’s great for the environment, but I do also super enjoy doing all the decanting and seeing the results on the shelf!
We did ruin it a bit today by having some left overs in tupperware due to sizing issues! Whoops.
I got a covid test this morning in prep for me bubbling up with my mum this weekend. It luckily came back negative so it’s all systems go!
After that it was another busy day at work then finally the time came to down tools and chill out with a rose bud gin and tonic. Very fancy for a Wednesday I must say. We even had a cheeky slice of cake – what a life we’re living!
The weather was all over the place today! Up at 7am to do a 7 mile run and I was greeted with blue skies and crisp morning air. Then come 3pm, I look out of the study window to see snow! It’s incredible to think last Saturday I was in the garden, reading my book in a t-shirt basking in the sunshine! I’ve had my taste of summer weather and now I want it back again please.
