Hello lovelies! How are you all?
Being typically British, I couldn't start this post without mentioning the weather.. I'm currently sat here on Bank Holiday Monday (today) writing this & looking out the window at all the rain. How frustrating, just when you think Summer has arrived (we had a beautifully sunny day yesterday) the rain returns. Only good thing is it means cosy days snuggled up inside with your duvet & a movie & you get to see epic sunsets like this!
You might have seen this mug in a previous post, as it featured in my Monthly Favourites. I actually can't wait for the end of this week as I'm off to Gloucester to see James. We're currently doing a 3 week gap so I can't wait to see him!
Last Friday we started off the weekend with Elisa's hen do! This was part 1, a meal at Smith & Western, then we went on to our local cocktail bar for drinks & finally to a small club / bar. We had such a good night!
Saturday afternoon was the hen part 2. We started off pottery painting,
which makes you realise how un-artistic you really are, then we went onto afternoon tea. The place we went was called Pretty Things, it the most stunning place with a very unique interior. We had a quiz & then headed to Cathy's for a girl's night in the evening.
Ok, so last Thursday morning, myself & my friend Ricka went for an induction at our local gym. I've never been to the gym before. I kid you not. This was a whole new experience for me & actually, I rather enjoyed it. We had a go on all the machines after being shown how to use them & we're currently on a 7 day free trial, so we get to use the gym as much as we like until this coming Thursday. I found out my friend Boop also has a membership at the same gym, so we were planning to go together yesterday, but she was busy, which meant.. I had to go on my own. The thought of this terrified me (as I'm sure people wo know me would probably guess) but despite that, I drove to the car park, sat in the car for 10 minutes & eventually went in. I only stayed for 20 minutes & did some work on the treadmill & on the leg machines, but I felt so pleased with myself when I came out! I seriously couldn't believe I'd done it! Hopefully I'm going again (on my own) tomorrow morning.. so we'll see how that goes.. wish me luck!
& finally after my massive gym achievement yesterday, I headed straight out the door again with the dogs for a walk. It was the most beautiful day & after 10 minutes of walking with my headphones in, I took them out & just listened to the birds chatting, the wind in the trees & felt the sunshine on my face. It was so nice to be outside, away from technology & the distractions of every day life. I need more days like that.
How was April for you lovelies?
Hope you're enjoying the Bank Holiday Weekend!
