Blooming El



I can't believe it's Wednesday already! I always feel that if I have plans at the weekend, the week seems to go just that little bit quicker. Does anyone else find this? 

How have you all been? What's been a'happening in your neck of the woods?

I have been feeling a little stressed this week. My shoulders are super tense from driving to Birmingham on Saturday and my eye has started twitching in the evening BUT there is plenty of good to outweigh the stressful, shall we? 

An Impromptu Picnic

On Sunday, whilst doing my weekly shop in Asda, I messaged my friend Georgie to see what she was up to for the day. We then arranged to meet and go for a little picnic! 

We spent the afternoon in Heartwood Forest, sat on top of the hill talking about relationships, friendships and future holidays and asking each other those VERY important life questions - Is popcorn the same as sweetcorn? 



I am so happy, like child-at-christmas-opening-new-toy kind of happy. I have been waiting for it to rain for so long. I just feel like it's been so #muggymike recently and I've been looking forward to the rain clearing the air a little.

All we need now is a little bit of thunder and I'll be one happy gal. 

A Little Surprise

G and I have recently started watching Power (SO GOOD) but by the time G gets home, it's nearly time to settle down and watch the drama unfold on Love Island so we're only about four episodes in. 

However, little G surprised me yesterday when he returned home from work a whole hour early! We managed to fit in one little episode of Power before cracking on (pun most definitely intended) with the 9 o'clock slot on ITV2. 

Disciplined and Proud

I'm trying really hard to not spend money on unnecessary things. Ever since I got my pay rise, I've wanted to use my money wisely and try to save as much as possible so myself and G can move out. 

When I get paid, I normally browse clothing websites for hours, save a few items to my basket then decide that I need them ALL and splash some cash that I don't really have. 

However, I've been SO disciplined this month. I was browsing the Matalan sale earlier this week and then I told myself NO and shut that little tab down. 

A Gif War

Last night, my brother discovered Gif's on Whatsapp and we had a tiny Friends gif off. It was short, sweet, and made me laugh out loud. 

That's all for this week! However, as always the wonderfulness doesn't have to stop there! Don't forget to drop by the rest of the crews* blogs to find out what's been making them smile and if you fancy joining in yourself, share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with us on Twitter!
