Blooming El



Brrrrrrrr! Hasn't it got super chilly all of a sudden? Not that I'm really complaining, as I have mentioned time and time again, I am a winter baby through and through! Anyho, how are you are all? I hope you're having a lovely week so far. Shall we get on with all things woooonderful?...

Pretty Scenes

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned some type of weather/landscape in every wonderful wednesday for the last three months. Autumn and Winter just create the most beautiful scenes. From the sun setting amongst the orange trees, offering a warm glow through my office window, to the cold frosty mornings with bright blue skies and white glistening grass accompanying me on my drive to work. There is so much wonderfulness outside and I'm glad I get to witness it all.

Experimenting with Food

I'm not sure if I can really call this experimenting but as I'm not very adventurous with cooking, just adding salt to my meal could be classed as an experiment!

G recently tasted a little bit of my pesto pasta and seemed to really enjoy it. I'm always trying to find new foods for G to eat, he's such a fussy eater so if he tries something new and likes it, I immediately take note.

On Sunday, I whipped up pesto pasta but added in some broccoli and spinach...just because. I really liked it and G seemed to enjoy it. I think next time, I'll add more oil and maybe chuck in a few bits of bacon.

I really need to make more of an effort when it comes to cooking, maybe I'll look in to taking a community course...hmm, yes maybe.

Shopping with My Mum

On Tuesday evening, my Mum dragged me to Biggleswade to help her find a wedding outfit. It was nice to have a little shop, just the two of us. I always enjoy helping my Mumma pick out an outfit and although it was short, it was super sweet.

Weekend away

Ahhh I just want it to be Friday already. I've booked half a days holiday so me and G can get up to Nottingham earlier. I'm really looking forward to our little Christmas adventure, the thought of finally spending some quality time together and completing our Christmas shopping is getting me through this week.

Goal Writing

I finally set myself some goals for 2017 and it felt so good to get them all down. I say all, there's only a few but they're pretty big ones. I've chose to split them into months, as I think they're easier to work towards when you have a specific time limit, instead of just saying 'In 2017, I will...'

The big goal for next year is for me and G to be in our own place by September. After New York, it'll be time to save save save. So please, nobody invite me to anything cool because I won't have the dollar.

Aaaaaand that's a wrap! If you would like to share your wonderfulness with myself and the gang* on Twitter, then please do and don't forget to use the hashtag #wonderfulwednesday! I hope you all have a super wonderful rest of week and a fabulous beginning to December (eeeek, can you believe it's nearly the end of the year?!)

  1. Completely agree with the beautiful scenes, I am loving the frosty mornings, bright blue skies and the colours at dusk. Your photo is stunning as well. ALSO talking about experimenting with food, if you're interested there are LOADS of facebook groups were people share their dinner ideas. Im a veggie so Im a member of veggie ones, but im sure theres meat based ones too! It's always good to have some inspiration to keep dinner times more fun! xx

  2. Very impressive that you're on 2017 goals - I need to do the same! Being in your own place is an awesome goal!
