Blooming El



Happy 1st of February all! I can't believe that one month of 2017 has passed already. I'm very happy to see the back of January, purely because February is my birthday month aka. the best month ever.

As I write my Wonderful Wednesday posts on Tuesday evenings, I decided that on the last Tuesday of every month, I would do a little round up of all the moments I've enjoyed. 

So, without further ado, I give you my January best bits...

Visiting Bury St Edmunds 

At the beginning of January, I took G and my brother on a little outing to Bury St Edmunds. My brother is moving to a small village just outside of Bury, so we had a little mooch to see what it was like. I'd definitely go back there for the day, it's a really pretty town with a good shopping area and a beautiful Cathedral. 

Beautiful Skies 

January has given us some wonderful skies. From dusty pink and purple in the morning, to bright blue and cloudless in the afternoon, it's been a wonderful treat for the eyes! 

Changing My Habits 

At the beginning of the year, I bought myself a pretty swanky lunchbox, with the hope that it would change my eating habits for the better. I'm glad to say, it has! I've started taking salads and fruit in to work and have tried my hardest to decline those sugary office treats. My diet wasn't great last year, to be honest I don't think it's ever been great, but I think I've done quite well so far. I'm not cutting out foods because I love my sweet treats and savoury snacks a little too much. However, I am trying to fit more fruit and veg in to my everyday meals.

I've also ditched the car a few times in an attempt to get more exercise. This is something that needs work but I'm getting there!

G's Determination 

I'm not the only one who's changed their eating habits, G jumped on board at the beginning of the year too and I am SO proud of him. He's regularly attending the gym and actually makes time to eat lunch whilst he's at work. Changing a few things here and there has already made such a difference, let's hope it continues!


I have spent a lot of time reading in January and I have loved it. It's felt so good to be snuggled up in a blanket, following the adventures of Harry, Ron and Hermione (yes, I'm very late to the party but I only have one and a half books to go!). 

Aaaaand I'm done! Now it's your turn, share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with myself and the rest of the gang* on Twitter.
