Blooming El



We made it, the hump day is here! Just got to get over this little hill then it's smooth sailing in to the weekend. 

My first few days back at work haven't been too bad, I'm actually glad I've got something to do other than laze around on the sofa watching YouTube videos.

Shall we crack on? 

Reading with G

Over the past three nights, me and G have both got cosy in bed and settled down with our books. I absolutely love reading before I go to sleep and when your partner is doing the same it just feels like you're both in a little warm, cosy bubble. 

Fresh air

On Sunday, myself and G had a little wander around Hughenden Manor. It was so nice to breathe in the fresh, crisp air. It was absolutely freezing but it blew away the cobwebs and was the perfect end to the weekend. 

I say it was perfect but G hadn't actually bothered to check whether our original destination was open on Sundays. I drove for an hour, trying to find the entrance to somewhere that was shut. It's safe to say I was a little bit peeved BUT G quickly found another National Trust site and luckily it was only another 10 minute drive away. Note to self: Don't trust your partner to do ANYTHING. 



For Christmas, my lovely Mother bought me tickets to see Dreamgirls at the Savoy Theatre in London. I loved the movie and I listen to the soundtrack practically all the time. 

Even though we were 'up in the Gods', I loved every minute of it and I'm so glad I finally got to see it. Next stop, either School of Rock or The Book of Mormon! 

After Laughter

I've started listening to the After Laughter album by Paramore again and it's been fab. I only listened to a few songs here and there when it first came out but listening to an album in full, from start to finish feels great. 

I think it takes me back to when I used to listen to CD's. I'd listen to them in consecutive order, discovering which songs I liked and which ones I weren't too fond of. I'd say '26' is my favourite at the minute, Hayley's voice is just a dream. 

That's all for this week's instalment of wonderfulness. Don't forget to check what's been making the rest of the wonder women* smile so far this week and if you want to join in yourself, share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with us on Twitter!
