5 Good Things #1

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.

Clothes Haul1: Shopping

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.

Glitter Paint2: Decorating

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.

Christmas Percy Pigs4: Festive treats

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!

Mr&Mrs Candles5: The clocks going back

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.

What things have been brightening your autumn recently?

  1. My thoughts in order while reading this post:
    – Yay stripes!
    – Glitter paint???!!!!???!!
    – I hope we get a peek at the house once it’s all done.
    – Ooh candles, I should light some now.

    Also, “dicking about on the internet” could be my slogan.


    1. – Always stripes.
      – The glitter paint is much less horrific in real life than anyone imagines (honest!)
      – I’ll definitely share a peek once each room is finished 🙂
      – It could definitely be my slogan too.


  2. Yes for procrastination. I’m delaying looking at my work bag by ‘picking around on the internet’ too. That’s the only good thing about the dark evenings, cosiness and candles.
