Blooming El



I can't believe it's Wednesday already! I know I say this a LOT but time seriously is just whizzing by me. I wake up on Monday morning, full of back to work blues, I blink and then suddenly it's the weekend again. Is this what growing old is all about?

Luckily, I've had some wonderful moments in the week to counteract those Monday blues. Let's get to it!

Misty Mornings

Yesterday, I woke to find a thick grey sheet blocking the view outside my bedroom window. It was still there as I drove to work, trying desperately to keep the sun away from those sitting in traffic. There is something so comforting about misty mornings, it makes me feel all...snuggly. 

Roast Dinner 

It wouldn't be a #wonderfulwednesday without mentioning food now would it?! On Sunday, G and I went to The Red Lion in Welwyn for our monthly dinner date. As it was a Sunday, I opted for a Sunday roast (chicken, of course). Oh my goodness. It was amazing. The chicken was on the bone, which I don't really like because, well it's effort isn't it? Trying to dodge all the bones to find the best bits. However, I didn't really mind because it tasted delightful. The potatoes were crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, the yorkshire pudding soaked up the gravy perfectly and the carrots, UH don't even get me started on the carrots. SCRUMPTIOUS. 

An Evening Outing

Yesterday after work, myself and G hopped on the train to London to do a spot of suit jacket shopping in Oxford Circus. Once the suit jacket had been found, G took me to Five Guys (he knows how to spoil a girl)...(no seriously, £30 for a posh burger and fries #spoiltrotten). Anyho, even though we were only in London for a few hours, it was nice to do something that didn't involve binge watching Homeland in bed. Oxford Circus looked sooo lovely at night and mixed with the cool air, it really did feel Christmassy! Too soon?

Getting Organised 

*Warning the C bomb will be dropped in this next paragraph and no it's not the rude one*

At the weekend, I took myself on a little outing to St Albans. It is one of my favourite places to have a mooch and whilst I was there, I picked out a few *boom* Christmas present ideas for my nearest and dearest. I feel SO organised this year and have started the big list of what I'm getting everyone. Technically, I'm allowed to start planning for Christmas because I've sorted out my Halloween outfit already...or at least that's what I'm telling myself. 

That's all for this week! How has your week been? Don't forget to share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with myself and the rest of the gang* on Twitter

  2. I love how cosy misty mornings feel.

    I've started Christmas shopping, too, and like you my justification is having Halloween all sorted already. Totally acceptable.

    I'm in the gang now, too, BTW. :-)

  3. The C bomb literally made me laugh out loud! :L you are on it!! xx

  4. I'm going to go one step further and tell you I've bought and wrapped my Christmas gifts for this year! I'm so ashamed of myself...

  5. As soon as I read 'Misty mornings' I was like YAAASSSS <3
    Dot worry about the C-bomb, Ive already bought two pressies! haha xx

  6. CHRISTMAS??? I bow down to your superior organisation, I hardly know what tomorrow will bring!! A good roast really is a thing of joy too.
    Have a happy rest of the week

  7. I'm definitely with you - time moves so fast these days, and I swear it moves quicker every year! I'm impressed that you're already getting yourself organised for Christmas, I do love a good list! xx


  8. Hahaha good use of the C-bomb, I wholeheartedly approve! (And am also super impressed by your organisational skills - here's hoping I can osmose some of that just by reading this post!) C x
