My Life Goal, ze Weight
Up we go again…the hormones are a bit chaotic at the moment (I’m feeling a bit down and out but am totally thankful for having great parents who call me each day to see how I am!) and I’m thinking they are also causing issues with my weight….my hormones not my parents.
Shake Your Booty
Still doing my yoga and I tried to fit in some walking on the treadmill however work and just general tiredness and lack of motivation got in the way this week…just the once on the treadmill.
What I’ve Read
Lisa bought me Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie, it’s such a classic and I totally fell in love with the book plus the hotel we visited in Istanbul where she wrote a majority of the murder mystery! I read Death on the Nile while we stayed at the Old Cataract Hotel in Egypt years ago and loved that also. I always said that I would read more of her books however I just got lazy and apparently “busy” (such a crap word that we all need to try and stop using…we just need to make time to reconnect!) so I’m going to rectify this situation.
I receive the Daily Telegraph travel emails and this article on bucket lists and how they are ruining the world was an interesting read….along with the comments (you have to read the comments!)! I’m a true believer that there is nothing wrong with a travel wish list, bucket list, travel inspiration etc etc…we all have ideas of destinations that we would love to visit but what is most important is that you add destinations that you would like to visit personally and when you do get a chance to visit then you treat that destination with the respect it deserves i.e. dressing respectfully, taking home your rubbish and leaving it so the next person can enjoy the destination. I actually managed to unsubscribe from the Daily Telegraph travel emails today…woohoo…not due to this article just because I’m also trying to declutter digitally as well.
What I’m Up Too…
I met up with Sara yesterday and we headed off to explore the Orchid Festival at Kew Gardens…I totally forgot how gorgeous the gardens were until our visit yesterday and also that the gardens are an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Orchid Festival is only on for a month; it’s rather busy so either visit really early on the weekend or toddle around the gardens on a weekday. It was so lovely catching up Sara as she is one of the nicest people that I know.
All the decluttering is paying off as certain rooms in our home are looking spotless now…I actually recycled all my travel magazines that I had squirrelled away which shocked G immensely however I did pull out a few pages of destinations that interest me for future travels.
Anyway enough of my babbling! What’s all your gossip?
