This week I have been
Feeling the love for Autumn. I’ve embraced it. I’ve written about it and I am happy about it.
How are you? I hope you’ve had a great week.
I always forget how much I love Autumn. What’s not to love? The colours, the cosy feels, the joy that is wearing layers. I’m not quite ready for bobble hats, gloves and scarfs.
Something deep in my soul calls out to Autumn. I’m just hopeful that the blue skies and crisp mornings make an appearance on weekends as I really enjoy getting my camera out at this time of year. And of course there’s all the excitement that the end of the year brings; Christmas, our wedding anniversary, New Years Eve, mine and Si’s 40th birthday celebrations. We have so much to look forward to. Back to this week.
This week I have been:
Enjoying a slow weekend
Last weekend was just that. We enjoyed a slow weekend together. It was long, relaxing, lazy, cosy and good for the soul. We took the opportunity to really enjoy a slow weekend together as the next few are much busier with birthday celebrations, dinner dates with friends and family photo shoots. There’s something about a slow weekend that helps to readdress the balance of busy weekday schedules. I’ve updated the blog with Septembers Me and Mine photos – always a favourite monthly post to write.
Unbelievable – well actually we finished it on Friday evening. What a series. Really tough to watch. Shocking in parts. It hurts so much to think that it is based on a true story. Can you imagine. The lead character, the female detectives, the treatment of others. If you haven’t seen it I would definitely add it to the list.
After having a good old declutter of my wardrobe I am delving into new and old outfits. In some small way I’m enjoying wearing my boots and coats. And lets not forget jumpers. Despite really really loving summer and sandals there is just something about layers. I’ve added some of my Style Loves to my Wardrobe – if fancy a little of Autumn/Winter inspiration pop over.
George has ran in his second Cross Country race for his School this week. It looks like they will be on for the next three weeks and thankfully I’m able to watch him as I’ve switched my day to pick him up. Weather dependent that is. It has been so wonderful watching him. I feel so proud. I will forever be the shouty mum on the sidelines supporting my boy. He really does come into his own on the running track. Honestly I didn’t know he had it in him, he is amazing and inspires me so much. This week he had another amazing race, he came 5th – out of 62. He is a wonder.
After a little dip in routine I’m back to it this week. For years I’ve trained in gyms or similar but recently I’ve not been motivated to leave the house at 6 am. So instead I’ve turned to my old friend Joe Wicks. To get back into things I’m following his 28 days of sweat and then hopefully I’ll be back on track. It’s amazing how easy it is to lose your fitness level, and of course once I’m off training I also eat naughty food, who can resist a Krispy Kreme right? So anyway, I’m getting back on track and feeling good about it.
In other news we have a weekend filled with friends. Catching up over coffee, friends round for dinner and drinks as well as 40th birthday celebrations. It’s a busy one. A good busy. Have a great weekend x x
