What have you been up to lately guys? I’ve been a busy little bee with sister time, crazy work stuff and prepping for a house move. So busy busy, but super fun too. Here’s a little recently I’ve been list. I’d love to see yours, so why not link up below?
Eating lots of chicken sandwiches, wraps and paninis thanks to having no energy left to be organised about cooking or making lunches. So M&S and the George Foreman grill have been coming in very handy…!
Watching lots of The Great Interior Design Challenge, I think we’ve got through 10 episodes in about a week. It’s oddly addictive isn’t it? Also loving that Arrow is back. Swoon.
Reading lots of brilliant manuscripts for work and Harriet Evans’ Not Without You. I love Harriet’s books and realised I hadn’t read one of her novels for ages so that needed rectifying and of course she didn’t disappoint.
Buying not very much (apart from the aforementioned M&S sandwiches) apart from packing materials. £160 on boxes and bubble wrap, surely that’s not right? If you’re London-based and ever need to move I have all the items you’ll need. So do grab a box or 40 some time.
Wanting a holiday. I feel like my body and brain is just fried right now and it’s screaming for a week away somewhere to do nothing but fun things – long walks, paddles in the sea, lazy mornings, comfort food and fresh air. But alas there’s still a month before my birthday trip to Deal.
Dreaming about moving house. It feels like we’ve been talking about moving for ages and ages and it still feels like it’s never going to happen. Fingers crossed we’ll be in the new house soon.
Drinking iced coffees and caramel macchiatos. The perfect pick me ups on the way into work or post thirst inducing run.
Listening to Taylor Swift’s 1989 on constant repeat. I just can’t get enough of it. And it’s still not getting repetitive or boring at all. Amazing!
Wishing lovely friends weren’t leaving for sunnier climes. Not only am I jealous, but I’m going to miss their smiley faces. Let’s just hope Sydney and California treat them well. Oh and that I can get out there to see them both soon. A lottery win would help!
Stressing over the house move. There’s so much to organise and it just takes so darn long.
Singing all things Wicked.
Considering treating myself to a new dress for my impending birthday party. Anyone spotted anything pretty and patterned that’ll work with black tights or bare legs? (After all who knows what the weather will be like at the end of this month?
Laughing at the things you find when you pack a flat after five years: a lone sock under the sofa cushions, enough dust to make anyone allergic to it, that forgotten sunset picture and a special contraption that means you can get to the things under the sofa without breaking your back by lifting the sofa. Oh.
Packing all of the things I own. We’re talking 11 boxes of books, five boxes and two suitcases of clothes, a small(ish) suitcase of jewelry and accessories and a whole holdall of coat hangers. YIKES!
Wearing a thinner scarf and my leather jacket. Guys, I think Spring is starting to make its presence felt.
Running a half marathon. It feels like I was training forever for this race, but it’s finally been completed and I loved it! It was such fun running with the sisterlings and we even managed a sisters sprint race right at the end!
Waiting forever for house things to get sorted.
Cooking nothing at all, which really needs to change sometime soon. I am dying to make a curry, stew or enchiladas sometime soon.
Planning a trip to France in the summer for a beautiful wedding. Hooray for lovely friends getting married in a stunning location.
Needing to start thinking about decor, food, drink, etc will be needed for my birthday party at the end of the month. I know it’ll be the 28th sooner than I think and yet I’ve not even thought about the practicalities of what the day will be like. I’m envisaging the above, I’m just not sure how I’ll get to that… Any ideas?
