WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY #50

NUMBER 50! A big FIVE ZERO. How the bloody hell did that happen? 

I'm so glad I got involved with #wonderfulwednesday. When I first started reading blogs, I admired Sally (aka. the queen, the OG, the brains and beauty behind all things wonderful) for her way with words and how she could turn the simplest of things in to something worth celebrating. 

About three years ago, I started to practise gratitude daily, both mentally and physically, making a note of everything I was grateful for. When I saw that others started to join Sally and get involved with #wonderfulwednesday, celebrating the small parts of their days that made them smile, it felt only right that I became a wonder woman too. 

Here we are, 50 posts later and there's still SO much to celebrate. Shall we crack on? (10 points for anyone who can tell me the strong theme in this week's post). 


Homemade Mac n' Cheese

I'm not going to lie, I was slightly repulsed at the amount of cheese I had to put in the sauce but once I'd mixed it in with the pasta, smoked pancetta, and shoved it under the grill, that 'there's-far-too-much-cheese-in-this-and-it's-kinda-gross' feeling soon vanished! 

Mac n' Cheese is one of my favourite dishes (when it's already made for me and I don't see what actually goes in it) and I'm pretty damn good at making it from scratch (I'm sure G will back me up on this). 

Served alongside some garlic and rosemary flatbread, it was the perfect dish for a Sunday evening! 

American TV Series'

Designated Survivor and How to Get Away with Murder are finally back on our screens and I couldn't be more excited. Now that we're in Autumn and the air is that little bit cooler, they are the perfect accompaniment to a cosy night in! 

PEACEFUL POWYS | A WEEK IN MID-WALES

MONDAY - ARRIVAL 

Having stopped off in Walsall on Sunday night, our little lodge was only an hour and a half away. However, we couldn't check-in till 4pm. We ate breakfast, read a few chapters of our books, then hopped in the car and drove to Newtown.

Newtown is the closest town to Slate House Lodges. It's not very big and only has a handful of shops but it passed the time! After a quick lunch stop in Greggs, it was time to do the big shop!

I was quite surprised to find not one, but three large supermarkets. We opted for Tesco (got to rack up those clubcard points!) and picked up WAY too much food for the week.

After a few country lanes, several steep hills, and one large gravelly track, we finally arrived at our lodge and what a BEAUTIFUL lodge it was. We unpacked our shopping, hung up our clothes, and quickly settled in to our temporary home.
