Blooming El



Happy hump day to you all! This week, I'm coming at you from my dining room table (can it still be called a dining room table if *technically* you don't have a dining room?) ready to give you a happy dose of Wonderful Wednesdayness. I normally write blog posts on the sofa or whilst in bed but I find I write so much better (and feel super profesh) when writing at a table. Which is why I cannot wait for me and G to get our own little place, I will definitely be finding room for a little office space, no matter how much G protests against it. 

Shall we get straight to it?

wonderful wednesday posts

Jane the Virgin 

UH this show. I love love love it. I'm watching the second episode of the third series right now (multitasking at its best). It's hilarious, tragic, dramatic and just UH so damn great. I find it best viewed in bed on a Sunday morning, wrapped up in your duvet covers with a toasted muffin or a warm croissant. 


Food and Wonderful Wednesday posts just go hand in hand, don't they? Like salt and pepper, sausages and yorkshire puddings, chips and curry sauce, mmm. This week, my food comes in the form of the most delicious chicken, ham and leek pie ever made. On Thursday, myself and G treated ourselves to dinner at The Chequers pub in our local town. I've had this pie on several occasions and it just keeps getting better. 


After being wined and dined on Thursday, we popped in to Tesco on the way home to pick up a few bits. I always peruse the clothing section in Tesco (if you follow me on Instagram, you will be fully aware of how much I am in love with F&F clothing) and this time I found myself in the footwear section. I've really noticed how cold the house is getting and whilst I have the cosiest dressing gown to keep me warm, I'm afraid my feet have felt a little neglected. However, this all changed on Thursday night when I picked up the loveliest pair of grey boot slippers. They have been keeping my tootsies especially warm and snug! 

Autumn Landscapes

My drive to work is beautiful at the moment. A specatular display of tall trees, covered in red and orange leaves decorate each side of the road. I really want to capture the scene but driving whilst using your phone is extremely dangerous, and I don't fancy getting a fine. I really need to go for a little walk before the leaves are replaced by ice and muddy slush (eugh!). 


Over the past few weeks, I've felt like me and G are back to the beginning of our relationship. You know the honeymoon phase, where you're getting to know them, you want to spend all of your time with them and you see them through these great big pink heart shaped glasses? I'm not sure whether it's because I met more of G's family last week and as a result, felt more connected to him but I just feel like a giddy little teenager. Last night, we were being really silly with each other and it just felt...lovely, really lovely. 

Aaaaand that's a wrap! Ah, how lovely was that? Now it's over to you, how has your week been? Share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with myself and the rest of the gang* on Twitter

  3. I'm sorry, for most of that I couldn't concentrate because the pie was doing crazy things to my brain! I pulled myself back and can now comment on the rest.
    Those slippers sound so warm. I've found myself all chilly when working at home in the day so slppers and dressing gown have been going over my clothes to keep me snuggly.
    Autumn has to be my favourite season for all the colours. I've been taking walks at the local parks to take it all in.
    Have a lovely end to your week

  4. i love love LOVE the last one - such a lovely thing to say {how many times can i say lovely?!?!?}. Those kinds of feelings are the best.

    Oh my to pie! It's been SO long since i've had one that this weekend we might have to dive in! I'm also ALL about the slippers lately after re-discovering them in a box in the spare room - they make such a difference first and last thing at this time of year!

    Happy mid-week lovely El and thank you for joining in lovely one xxx

  5. The last one!!! Isn't it amazing how you can go weeks without properly noticing somebody and then THERE THEY ARE AGAIN?!
