Celebrating - Joe and I had our 1st wedding anniversary in May. We had a lovely party with lots of family and friends (kind of a belated wedding reception!) and Joe bought me a this book, I'm not sure what that says about what he thinks of me or our relationship, but I love it anyway!
Holidaying - We had a lovely week long holiday Aberdovey last month, lovely walks on the beach, some sunny days, and an inspirational visit to CAT in Machynlleth.
Listening to - I have a Lush Spa CD (this Beatles one) and I love soaking in a warm bath and chilling out while it's on.
Auntie-ing - My littlest niece suddenly had this whole new vocabulary - it's all 'that's a bit manky' 'she will be disgusted by it' or 'please pass the sellopape' roud here - she's only two! Big niece just gets cleverer and cleverer too. We spend a lot of time checking out the tadpoles in my Mum's garden, looking at wiggly worms. I'm so lucky I get to spend this time with them, I'm making the most of it before big one goes off to school in September!
Watching - I don't like Amazon, but hypocritically signed up for a free trial of Amazon Prime because I Really needed something delivered next day and didn't want to pay the £8 delivery fee. So we've been watching Amazon Prime TV this month, I've watched nearly all of Awkward and Joe's been watching American Gods. I loved the 3rd season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and the new episodes of iZombie too. And Doctor Who is so good this season, I love Bill so much!
Gardening - My raised beds are super productive at the moment and they're making me so happy! I've decided to try to squeeze as many trees into the garden as possible, and started by buying 3 this month! I've been reading lots about Permaculture and hope to include lots of Permaculture principles in the garden.
Reading - So many gardening books, and lots of easy reads (all I can cope with during a snap general election!), I've been enjoying the Worst Witch series - please can I go and live in a witches school?!
Working - Work is workish. It's fine. I'm trying a new thing where I don't talk or think about work at home, and it's working out pretty well. I came back from my holiday so lovely and calm, and I'm trying to keep hold of that feeling!
Looking forward to - a summer of being in the garden.
Eating - I've become a regular at my local Novello Lounge (for the vegan breakfast!) - I've been twice this week!
Guiding - I'm so looking forward to a big district event this month to celebrate 100 years of Guiding in Shropshire (and there'll be a special badge!)
Writing - I've started writing 'morning pages' when I have time in the mornings. The idea is to just get up and write, stream of consciousness style, ideally 3 pages but I usually only manage 2, and it gets all your creative and stressy feelings out and helps you to work through stuff. I was sceptical but I've been finding it really helpful.
Wanting - Labour to win the general election, so bad. I'm writing this in advance, on Thursday, so I don't know what the outcome will be, but I'm hoping so hard for a Labour government, and if not I'm hoping so hard that we can come together and make it through another 5 years of the Tories.
Blogging - The most popular posts in this little corner of the internet have been,
Use a wooden toilet brush (I don't know why, but it's popular!)
Hope you've had a happy springy spring!
