A life update in verbs / 4

Sunday, August 27, 2017

The view from my bedroom window - caught the birdies hovering around the garden (probably dropping hints that we need to fill up our bird feeders)

It's been a while, huh?

WatchingGame of Thrones s7 (of course), House of Cards s5Rick and Morty s3, and soon Bake-off! Very excited for that.

Reading: I've got a nifty little Goodreads gadget in my sidebar now so you can see what books I'm currently reading (yes, I'm the slowest reader on earth, tell me something I don't know). Feel free to add me as a friend on Goodreads!

Eating: A lot of custard donuts, strawberry shortcake Müller Corners, and Seabrook cheese and onion crinkle cut crisps. So healthy, I know. It's been that kind of month.

Drinking: Arla Lactofree chocolate milk. It is heavenly. I used to be obsessed with Cocio chocolate milk but they stopped stocking it in all my local supermarkets. They have it online (Waitrose, Sainsbury's) but I never see it in store. Turns out Arla bought Cocio in 2008 which might explain why their Lactofree chocolate milk tastes identical to Cocio. I'm so happy I've finally found something to replace Cocio because I was getting major withdrawal symptoms. 

Loving: The lowkey Autumn vibes we're getting here in the UK. I don't think England's done with its heatwaves yet (unfortunately), but I've woken up to many a crisp, misty morning already this month. I'm even getting a bit giddy about Christmas. I don't think my Autumn and Winter & Christmas boards on Pinterest are helping the situation. I'm just so over summer - the UK had its summer months ago and I was on the verge of breaking out a jumper the other day when I learned we were having more heat hit us next week. Boo, hiss.

Feeling: Relieved now the bank holiday weekend is here! Going to spend two days off with my family, maybe do some gardening, and I'll try and do some blogging too since I've been a bit awol recently. Been feeling very uninspired, plus I've been busy at work so I've not really had the energy or motivation to sit at my laptop. I tend to get home and flop straight into bed.

Thinking: About my future. Bleugh, I hate it but it has to be done sometimes. As much as I like to wing it and go with the flow, I'd also like to have some sort of loose "plan" so I don't reach 30 and have another life crisis. Thing is, I have no idea what to do with my life. Super helpful! Someone wanna decide what I should do with my life so I don't have to? Cool, thanks. 🙈

Hope you guys have had a good week. Weather's not been too shabby recently, has it? Hope it sticks around for the weekend.

P.S. Might have a DIY post up for you guys this week. Fingers crossed.
