24/02/21 – Morning exploring

I ran to Streatham Rockery his morning as I spotted it on a map and thought it looked interesting! And I wasn’t wrong. The run itself was chocked full of hills, but the Rockery was incredibly tranquil. I sat down for a minute to take in all the bird noise and fresh morning feeling. I’mContinue reading “24/02/21 – Morning exploring”

23/02/21 – Spring is springing!

Seeing this tree in full blossom made me so happy this morning! I was out on an hours walk before work with Corinne on the phone. It was such a gorgeous dawn and a wonderful opportunity to find the time to catch up with great friend. In some other wholesome news, after dinner I spentContinue reading “23/02/21 – Spring is springing!”

22/02/21 – New obsession

I’ve recently got a Nintendo Switch with Animal Crossing and I have become so engrossed by it. I can’t get enough of improving my little island, what is it, six months late to the party? Since giving up social media for Lent my free time has revolved heavily around my new Switch and reading andContinue reading “22/02/21 – New obsession”

21/02/21 – Long run Sunday

I ran to Clapham Common and back today today. It was an absolute slog… Not enough food and water yesterday, and too thick of top when it’s 14 degrees – sweaty! I ended up tying my top up to get my tummy out to cool off! That’s a bucket list item to have enough confidenceContinue reading “21/02/21 – Long run Sunday”

20/02/21 – Quiet Carnaby

Nic and I drove to London today to grab some things we needed from The Japan Center. We headed in early just in case it was busy, and it was absolutely dead! This was Carnaby Street just as we headed home at midday. It has filled me with so much happiness just from a singleContinue reading “20/02/21 – Quiet Carnaby”

19/02/21 – Friday lunchtime!

Nic finished his contract today at work, so we went to Crystal Palace to celebrate with a fancy sandwich! We took a little walk whilst waiting, it was lovely to properly get out the house at lunch. Then this evening I finished Anne Frank’s diary. I properly cried, how can you not? But her wordsContinue reading “19/02/21 – Friday lunchtime!”

18/02/21 – Golden hour dreams

Busy day today! Went for a four mile run with Corinne (she was on the phone!) this morning before work. It was great apart from when it got too windy and we struggled to hear each other, I think we’ll switch to walking instead next time… I had lots of meetings today and also aContinue reading “18/02/21 – Golden hour dreams”

17/02/21 – Wise words

I’m currently reading Anne Frank’s diary and it’s such an incredible book. She’s a insightful writer, especially so for such a young age. I thought it would be a bit of a slog to get through but I’m finding myself flying through it by reading at every single moment of free time I have asContinue reading “17/02/21 – Wise words”

16/02/21 – Pancakes and saying goodbye to social media

Today is shrove Tuesday! We had pancakes for our pudding tonight and they were lush. For Lent I’m attempting to abstain from social media (not including my blogs!). I think it’ll be hard, but good for me. I’m finding myself getting more and more wound up by terrible people on the internet, so it’s timeContinue reading “16/02/21 – Pancakes and saying goodbye to social media”

15/02/21 – The smell of Spring

Out on our lunchtime walk today we could both smell Springtime in the air! The rain came last night and washed away all the remaining snow and what feels like also the end of winter. The smell of fresh air and flowers were blowing in the breeze and this has cheered up no end. WhatContinue reading “15/02/21 – The smell of Spring”
