I’ve been utterly rubbish of late at keeping up with blogging. Things are more manic than usual at work which, coupled with extra responsibilities there, has left me with little energy to do anything but collapse on the sofa in the evening.
I’m meant to be updating some assessment bits and planning for next week right now, so obviously I’m dicking around on the internet and blogging. I am, as always, the queen of procrastination.
Anyway, here’s a quick kick up the arse back into blogging with a 5 Good Things post. I always like reading these from other people so thought I did give my own a go.
I haven’t had a proper day shopping since spring. I prefer to online shop then I don’t have to deal with crowds of people. Last week the mothership and I spent the day at the Trafford Centre and I spent pretty much all my wages in Zara, H&M and Pull & Bear. I’m now poor but am armed with cosy items (and some token stripes) ready for winter.
So far the living room is pretty much done, our hallway/stairwell/landing is a work in progress and our bedroom is almost there. I’ve even managed to involve glitter paint in the process. I am loving the feeling of satisfaction as a room comes together and looks as I’d envisioned it.
3: Baby cuddles
A few of our friends are either about to have or have just had babies and cuddles with one particularly dinky little chap last weekend definitely put a smile on my face.
I’m a sucker for anything even vaguely Christmas related so finding that M&S have Christmas themed Percy Pigs has just made my Saturday. He’s wearing a little Santa hat and I can not cope with the cuteness. It definitely hasn’t stopped me eating them though!
I love the darker evenings as they make my love of burning an excess of candles and hiding under a blanket on the sofa socially acceptable and, dare I say it, even cool? As I’m now apparently fully embracing the hygge trend.
