Blooming El



Happy Wednesday all! How have you been? Hot? Sweaty? A bit huffy and puffy? Yep, me too. 

Whilst I've moaned about the heat constantly, I do have some happy bits to harp on about so let's get to it!

Fans Fans Fans

Well, it's just the one fan actually and it has been a LIFE SAVER during this heatwave.

New Hair

I got the chop and I'm actually really pleased with it! I wasn't expecting to go short when I booked the appointment but by the time it came around, I thought I needed a change! I loved having longish hair but when you don't do anything with it, it just kind of hangs there..looking all dull. 

Today is the first time I'm actually wearing my hair down. I've been sticking it up in buns and ponytails to try to keep cool! #whenwillthisend

An almost cold shower

For a while, I haven't been able to turn our shower to the cooler temperatures and whilst the rest of my family have super skin, I cannot handle the heat.

Luckily, G managed to get it a little bit cooler this week so I've been able to indulge in a semi-cold shower before bed.


After finishing OITNB, me and G found ourselves a bit lost in the evenings but the lack of binge-worthy series' led us to download a crossword app and we haven't been off it since.

We do about three crosswords in the evening, whilst listening to the radio and its just really lovely.

We really need to get out more don't we?

Florence and the Machine

I rekindled my love (again) for Florence and the Machine and its just been fab.

I love rediscovering old music and having a good old singing sesh. My favourites are My Boy Builds Coffins, Howl, and Ship to Wreck. 

That's all from me this week but the goodness doesn't have to stop there! Drop by the rest of the crews* blogs to see what's been making their weeks' wonderful AND if you want to join in, share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with us on Twitter!
