Blooming El



Is it that time again already?! I know, I know. I've mentioned time again but seriously, it just goes so fast! So in true time fashion, let's just jump straight to it, shall we?

wonderful wednesday blog posts


I've really upped my game this year when it comes to reading. I'm picking up my books before work, on my lunch break, before I go to sleep, and on the weekends in an attempt to get through as many as possible before we see in the new year. On Saturday afternoon, I plonked myself on the sofa and delved deep in to the Goblet of Fire, drawing out tales of the wizarding world as the blue sky slowly faded to black. If I ever have children, I'd want them to take on my love of reading and be able to find peace in settling down with a good book. 

A Suited and Booted G 

This is a little bittersweet but I guess that's kind of what these Wonderful Wednesday's are all about? Being able to find the good in the not so good, the spectacular in the mundane. Yesterday, I acompanied G to his Grandad's funeral. It was the first time I had seen G in a suit, a proper suit. Jacket, tie, shirt, the works. When I first met G, he lived in jogging bottoms and this mariners baseball jersey thing, so it came as quite a shock to see how smart (and handsome) he could actually look. 

Theraputic Writing 

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen my mini thread about a post I'm currently writing. I've been feeling really confused and disheartened about not knowing what I want to do with my life and thought that if I wrote a blog post about it, a little angel would come along and give me some words of wisdom. I aggressively typed all of my negative feelings on to a blank screen and felt instant relief. Amongst my pessimistic words, I found positivity. Sometimes when you can't find a solution or are struggling to get your head around things, the best thing you can do is put pen to paper and just let it all out - spelling mistakes and all! 

Very short and sweet 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

  1. Short and sweet but no less wonderful! Sorry to hear you've been feeling down and troubled by what to do with your life but glad that getting it all out onto a page helped. Sometimes these things do take time and you've got to keep trying different things and taking the time to think about what you enjoy and want from life. You'll get there :)

  2. I'm with you when it comes to reading. This summer I said to myself I needed to get back into reading and this afternoon I have just finished Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! There is something so comforting being back in Hogwarts! xx

  3. Hurrah for reading! I've got so much reading for uni to do at the moment that I don't have time to read for pleasure, which is a bit of a shame. I'm sorry to hear you're feeling disheartened. Writing things down can definitely be so therapeutic. I hope you'll feel better!
