27/02/21 – Shiny car!

After all the recent snow and rain the day has finally come to give Reggie the car a proper wash. Hoovered, shampooed, washed and waxed, he’s now absolutely gleaming and I’m feeling super accomplished from completing this task. We also deep cleaned the bathroom today and Nic made a huge batch of three different pastaContinue reading “27/02/21 – Shiny car!”

26/02/21 – Morning reflection

This morning I went for a speedy 5km run. It was 2 degrees, a clear blue sky with the sun shining – ideal conditions. Once I got back home I noticed there was still steam rising off me so I went into the garden to stretch and cool down. The birds were chirping, the sunContinue reading “26/02/21 – Morning reflection”

25/02/21 – Longer days

Just look at that sky! Our evening walks are no longer dark and dreary but colourful and well, not so dark. It’s doing an absolute wonder to my mood – I feel like a different Steph from a month ago. After dinner I got way more done on my cross-stitch whilst having a lovely natterContinue reading “25/02/21 – Longer days”

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”
