Blooming El



I've just found out that it's around 32 degrees in New York and it's put me in panic mode. I knew it would be warm when we go but I didn't think it would be THAT hot. Some of you will probably be thinking 'what the feck is she moaning about?!' but you know what, you didn't just spend three months buying clothes that would go with a pair of Nike's and a good ol' pair of jeans. 

I'm just going to have to use what I've got and pray that the temperatures don't go above 20 degrees when we get there. In the meantime, let's take a look on the brighter side of this week so far...

JP Cooper 

Oh be still my beating heart. You know how emoji's have names, well the eye heart emoji should be called JP Cooper's voice. Honestly, Passport Home can turn my frown upside down in seconds. 


Another sound that's been making me super happy, is the sound of rain. I was in bed, battling my tonsilitis, and out of nowhere it just started raining. It only lasted a few seconds but it was rather lovely and makes me want a conservatory even more. 


I finally picked up a book this week! I can't remember when I finished my last one but it's felt nice to get stuck in to a new read. I'm currently reading 'The Pact' by Jodi Picoult and have been enjoying it during bubble baths and at lunchtime, so far so good!

Butternut Squash Risotto

In a bid to make myself feel better, I picked up a little pot of Butternut Squash Risotto from the Sainsbury's My Goodness! range. It wasn't the first time I've had it and it certainly won't be the last, it's just so damn scrummy! 

I think that's all for this week, short and sweet again! The wonderfulness doesn't have to stop here though, don't forget to check out what's been making the rest of the crew* smile and if you want to get involved, share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with us on Twitter!
