I think it’s unheard of me not blogging for this long. Although it has been an exceptionally busy week. I seemed to be off somewhere every day! Next week is looking a bit calmer social wise so hopefully I can get back on track here. I rarely do these weekly updates, but I want to make it more of a regular thing. I want to remember all my favourite things I have done, like having afternoon tea!
This week I have enjoyed going out for afternoon tea with my parents. I had some vouchers, so it was nice to treat them for a change. I am a bit hooked on afternoon tea. There is something quite therapeutic about having lots of tea and cake. This spread didn’t disappoint!
I needed the sugar energy as before the afternoon tea session I had completed a brisk 7 mile walk with a friend! I was flaking until the sugar reached my system. You see I am out of practise when it comes to exercise. I had been so good. But I quit my gym membership recently and have gone back to eating ALL the wrong things!
My friend celebrated her birthday this week so that was another meal! I promise you I don’t usually socialise this often normally! My calendar will probably go quiet for months now…
On Friday I went shopping with my mum. I’m not a big shopper but my mum wanted the company, so I went along. Plus, she treated me to lunch which is always a bonus! We then stopped off at a garden centre for tea and cake. As I have got older, I have started developing an appreciation for garden centres!
We have decided what our next project for the house will be! I am excited that a log burner will make the house warmer! I always feel so cold. Even now as the weather warms our house is still freezing. Old stone houses take a lot to warm up! This is something cosy about a roaring fire too. I love the flickering colours. Then we might finally transform our dining room. It’s always tricky blogging as that room is so bad, I try not to feature it if I can help it. But there have been times I could have done with it being finished.
Competition wise I have been so lazy I have barely entered any at all this month. I had promised myself I would be more proactive. But I just seemed to have lost my drive, I don’t think I have enough material to write a competition update post this time. I did have one nice win which you can see below.
It was lovely having such a big bag of random products to rummage through! Apparently it was meant to be worth £250! I also had an envelope with some vouchers too for the bits that couldn’t travel well in the post. Next month I am going to try and be a bit more determined with competitions and blogging as a whole.
