THOUGHT OF THE DAY

hello

So thats it, the clocks have gone back, the nights are darker, the days are colder. My scarf is officially being worn! I can wear tights without feeling like the grinch who stole summer. Amazingly, with this new season I seem to have acquired more brain power, I'm motivated, I'm making stuff, I'm reading and taking more pictures. I want to make food when I get in from work (sometimes) and I want to write more on this little blog of mine. Exercise hasn't got the memo yet though.

I think it's important for me to remember the times when I feel motivated and inspired to actually do things. There are so many times when I feel like I don't want to do anything at all and hopefully when I feel like that one day, I'll read this post back and I will remember how I was feeling and it will spark a little something to get me going again. What a nice thought eh.
I figured that the times I feel motivated to do things, and then I actually do them, all feed in to the things I do in the future and have way more impact then I could have imagined at the time. And that is my thought of the day.

A DAY OFF

Day off
Day off

Not much has been going on lately hence the lack of updates on here. Work is keeping me busy with the lead up to Christmas and weekends mostly seem to be spent in font of the telly which I'm certainly not complaining about. I booked the day off work yesterday just to spend some time at home, being home alone is quite a rare occurrence and a bit of a luxury! I didn't have much planned but to drink lots of tea and even treated myself to nice bit of choccy cake.

I hadn't really planned to get dressed but the sun was shining so I headed up to Shoreditch for a wander.

Back home I finished reading my book - Blackout by Sarah Hepola which is brilliant and weirdly relatable even though she is a recovering alcoholic?!

And then I lit the candles and did pie with roast veg for tea.

Not a bad day off at all, I'll have more of those I think!

A WEEKEND IN MANCHESTER

Manchester

Feeling a little blue this morning after having the loveliest weekend with my pal Sophie in Manchester. There was lots of tea drinking, mooching around and enough chatting to make my voice a little hoarse. These are just a few pics from the weekend, what I saw and what we did. If you go, make sure you visit the library, such a beautiful building.
I also give her avocado and eggs on toast a whopping 10 out of 10, good work!

The soup and sandwich was from Soup Kitchen and the photos were taken at Fred Aldous, my new favourite shop. 

Visits like this make me miss living up north so much.

48 HOURS IN MAJORCA

Palma, Majorca

Last Saturday I headed off to Majorca for the weekend with work. Now don't get me wrong, I love love love camping but it was really nice to have some hot sun and see palm trees for a couple of days...and yes, I did feel guilty leaving Steven behind! 
We landed in Palma and drove twenty minutes along the coast where we stayed at Barcel√≥ Illetas Albatros and this was the view out of my hotel room!

We mooched around Palma city centre

And then before we knew it we were on the plane home and back at our desks drinking a cuppa instead of a cocktail!
