Playing Catch Up



I thought it was about time I did a non outfit post and filled you all in on the happenings in my life. Whether you like it or not...

I've been struggling slightly with my diet this year. I've just never really managed to get back into the Slimming World lifestyle after Christmas. Yes, I'm aware Christmas was nearly four months ago. I am getting there slowly though and I wrote a guest post about my weight loss for the wonderful 'Where Are My Knees?' blog, which you can find here. Disclaimer: Contains a HORRIFIC photo of me from when I was at my biggest. Enter at your own peril.

My parents have been on holiday in Spain for the past week, resulting in me taking on dogsitting duties at their house. I've missed my little house in the ghetto but it's actually been really nice to have a week away from it. I feel like a lot of the things (well thing) that have been clouding my head recently have dissipated and I'm feeling extremely... serene and at peace with myself. Ugh, sometimes I despise myself!

My house is coming along.... slowly. I'm actually extremely frustrated and am looking forward to being off for ELEVEN days over Easter so I can get my DIY on and make some real progress. I intend to buy lots of brightly coloured furniture, wallpaper a bit and paint some canvasses. Job done. Apart from the small matter of a new bathroom and a new kitchen. Home ownership - far more expensive and time consuming than I ever imagined!

Other miscellaneous things I have been doing include: planting herbs! Yes, I am officially middle aged and LOVING it; attending my friend B's baby shower, and eating the sweets from the goody bag in approximately 5 seconds; basking in the 22 degree heat on Sunday. Yeah baby, the playsuits are back!


How've you been, loves?

Take some time on your house, it will come together. I promise. I have been working on ours for two years now. the kitchen, and living room are finally done but there is still so much to do... however, the rooms that are done are done perfect and I love them.

House ownership is expensive bznz but so worth it. I can't wait to see more photos! Also, now I want sweets.

Your WAMK post was ace. I couldn't believe the first photo though, doesn't even LOOK like you!

Cheery - I've only been moved in for 4 months and I'm already frustrated! I'm so impatient...

Sarah - I promise I will post house photos. Just as soon as it doesn't look like a tip! And thankyou. I don't even recognise myself. I never knew how big I was!

I wish I had my own little house. Oh soooo jealous!!!

My life is soooo not exciting at the moment since I came back from my hols on Saturday. The most interesting thing I have done all week was cooking dinner for my boyfriend tonight. And that has been pretty much the highlight of my week. I was out and drunk last night, but I can't really remember that, so it doesn't really count... ;)

I'm pretty much a hobbit all winter. But when spring comes, I'm in constant motion. Blame it on the season.
