Please read my first A Little Bit Lately post to find out what these are all about, although I’m sure you get the idea. These have been inspired by Sometimes Sweet’s Currently posts so check her out if you like it!
My lovely friend Vicki from Let’s Talk Beauty picked me up a copy of Mollie Makes Blogging magazine which I am super excited about. Just so lovely to pick up and read a few snippets of for inspiration and I’m really glad I’ve finally got my hands on one!
Games of Thrones, obviously, me and my husband love it. I’ve also started watching Once Upon A Time on Netflix which isn’t amazing but I am so addicted! I can’t stop watching it and I keep trying to explain what is going on to my husband but he just looks at me in disbelief. It does sound a little strange when I say it out loud but it is a good bit of escapism and easy to watch so I like it!
It’s kind of sad that I sometime struggle with this one. Music used to be such a massive part of my life, I was so passionate about bands and live music and I would just sit in my room listening to albums over and over again. Now the only time I really pay attention to music is in the car and as I don’t have one in the week it doesn’t happen that often
This last month I have been to a couple of blogging conferences and I’ve just loved meeting up with other bloggers. I think I’m getting to the stage now were there isn’t always a lot of new information I gain from these meet-ups but getting to chat to other bloggers has been the most inspiring thing. It’s not even that we constantly talk blogging, I feel like I know them so well through reading their blogs that we can talk about anything. I am constantly overwhelmed by the support the blogging community offers and the way we can all come together to offer advice, encouragement and sometimes sadly empathise with a blogging friend. I’ve been blogging for a while now but over the last year I’ve met some people who have become real friends and I truly do appreciate and love that.
I really wish there were a few more hours in that time between the children going up to bed and my own bedtime. There is so much I want to get done within that short space of time and I’m not very good at staying up too late either so I try and cram as much in as I can. I’m trying to set aside a couple of nights for exercise too; I went swimming this week and it was brutal which made me realise that I really need to get my fitness up. My arms ache so much and I didn’t even do that much. I put out a post this month about my weight loss journey and it was a little bit of a scary one for me because it was so personal. It sounds silly now but I didn’t sleep very well the night before because I was so worried about it and I needn’t have been. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everyone who has commented or tweeted me about it, it really does mean so much to me! Anyway, now I have lost the weight I do want to concentrate on toning and fitness. Yoga is the next thing I want to try out; I have never done it before but I like the idea of carving out an hour just to relax, clear my mind and hopefully stay fit at the same time. Watch this space on that one!
