My Life Goal, ze Weight
Yeah I’ve gained a little…it wasn’t a good week! I had a huge homemade meringue, strawberry, ice cream sundae with chocolate sauce every night last week as I was grrrring a lot about work…to relax I had to call in the big guns…Colin Firth jumping into a lake with a side of ice cream sundae…this did work and I highly recommend if you feel like you could kill someone with your bare hands!
Shake Your Booty
I’ve exercised a few times in the past week but have had to stop the 12 week challenge as my knees are killing me and clicking every time I take a step which sucks big time…no more squats for a little bit so started to do pilates again to give my knees time to recover.
What I’m Up Too…
After a pretty horrendous week at work thanks to a quarter end close that just didn’t want to play ball and left me feeling pretty disorganised and even grumpier than normal; it was fantastic to have something to really look forward too…Caprice cuddles!
I used to work at London Underground many years ago and gained two amazing friendships during this time so when Caprice popped up from South Africa we went carb loading in the form of afternoon tea (her other so called friends took her for bike rides…G does ask often how I end up with friends who all love exercising when I detest it so much…I’ve yet to find a credible answer other than I enjoy carb loading with them!)…if you want to know how much I love Caprice this is the answer…I slapped on concealer to cover the dark circles under the eyes…if I chuck on the concealer than you know you’ve made my christmas card list!
G was working in Cardiff last week which meant I had nobody to moan at all week and every time he’s away, there is always a problem with the house. Thankfully this time that didn’t happen and I didn’t get a midnight visit from a mouse either…phew!
I almost killed his babies aka the tomato plants as I forgot to water them…so after my shower on Thursday night I suddenly remembered that I needed to go outside to water them…chucking on a rather short nightie, getting slightly distracted by twitter, I went out to feed his babies…half way through this exercise I realised I hadn’t chucked on any undies so if our neighbours had looked over into our back garden then they would have seen a rather big full moon! Moral of the story…G is to pay someone to water his babies next time he goes away!
So after seeing Caprice in London on Friday (and this visit really made me grateful that I don’t live in London…honestly the manners of people in London are atrocious and don’t get me started on the traffic!)…I boarded a train to Cardiff to see G so we could drive back to Bedfordshire together the following day…I had a lot of pent up moaning to do on the car journey…then I realised if we left the M4 we could visit two places on my UK bucket list in Wiltshire so this perked me up a lot.
Saturday started with me visiting Cardiff Castle…castle vs breakfast…the castle won!
After leaving Cardiff we stopped off in Castle Combe and then ventured onto Lacock…we had many giggles over this…oh la lacock…Lafanny…Labottom…needless to say we were rather mature about it all. Both villages were stunning and I’m sharing photos on instagram at the moment which you can see here.
This upcoming week…well I have work and no real plans…I’m actually enjoying only making plans with people that I really care about and want to spend time with plus it also means that I get some alone time to chill out.
I’ve thought long and hard about this blog lately and thought about deleting it as I just couldn’t focus on it…the bollocks that you should post consistently for your readers just doesn’t work in the real world if you hold down a full time job (and those posts make me feel rather like a failure) and when I woke up and smelled the blogging peonies, I realised that I’m not a blogger…I’m a person that writes a blog about my life and screw it, I will post whenever I fancy…I suddenly felt a lot less guilty about my lack of blog posts recently.
I’m slowly getting my mojo back…we all have good and bad days but that’s just life! As I’ve said before, life isn’t all unicorns and rainbows but wouldn’t it be wonderful if it was.
So what’s all the gossip?
