OFF THE RECORD: WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS….??
Whether you are avglass half full kind of girl or glass half empty, there is no denying the power of positive thinking. This week really didn’t start out all that great for myself and Jess. We had Monday scheduled in for a day of DIY but little did we know the universe had other plans? Deliveries didn’t arrive on time and we had a complete DIY epic fail! So instead of moping around feeling sorry for ourselves, we decided to give up and turn our attention to something more positive. We got comfortable on the sofa, sat and made a list of all our plans for the next months and what we would need to do to complete them. Within hours our day had been turned on its head. We had created a mastermind DIY plan for the next month and we both left that day, feeling like we had accomplished something rather than failed. I suppose what I am trying to say is when life gives you lemons….make lemonade!
Here is what else we have been loving this week….
♥ Gardening at grannies in the glorious sunshine!
♥ Having a bad day made good! Watching back to back episodes of Pretty Little Liars in my PJ’s and having a scrummy roast dinner cooked for me by my other half. He knows how to cheer me up alright 🙂
♥ Spending a day on the sofa planning more DIY projects than you shake a glue gun at! Funnily this is not what we had planned to do on Monday at all but gosh I am so looking forward to what we have in store for you!
♥ Receiving pretty epic emails. Sorry to be so cryptic but lets just say our summer just got a schooled!
♥ Eating lunch in the sun!
♥ Seeing my Daffodils starting to bloom in the garden – they make me so happy!
♥ Watching Clean Bandit! I went to a gig of theirs on Monday in Birmingham and they were epic! I loved hearing them play live and getting into the party mood!
♥ Finishing 50 Shades Of Grey Darker, I only bought it last week and spent pretty much all day Sunday reading it, I was hooked! And it ended on such a bloody cliff hanger so now I need to go and get the third book to read! What a shame..
♥ Trying out my new shampoo, lol, I know that doesn’t sound at all exciting but hear me out…this was no ordinary shampoo! It was Lush’s seaweed shampoo bar, I have never used one of these before but can honestly say I’m never going back to shampoo in a bottle! The bar will not only last me AGES but it’s full of natural goodness which is amazing for your scalp and my hair felt so smooth afterwards!
♥ Spending mornings at Hannah’s, she’s one of my oldest friends and having breakfast with her is always a joy! It feels like no time has passed and we’re 13 years old again chuckling away!
♥ Having dinner at Moko’s in Monmouth, it’s a lovely little Mexican restaurant with one of the best Mojitos I’ve ever tasted!
♥ Masterchef being back on BBC One! I love that shit!
