Blooming El



It's been another one of ~those~ weeks so far, a bit of an emotional roller-coaster shall we say?

However, surprisingly, I've found it quite easy to note down little moments that have made things easier and put a smile on my face.

Shall we?

positivity list for wonderful wednesday

My first street party

What better way to kick off this week's Wonderful Wednesday than with the beautiful Royal wedding! I cried, I laughed, I screamed with joy, then I cried a little more. It really was rather lovely, wasn't it?

After I'd watched the wedding, I attended my first ever street party! There was a bouncy castle, a paddling pool, lots and LOTS of food, music, and games for the children. The weather was beautiful and I had a really lovely day.

Time apart

G has been in Portugal since Sunday on a golfing holiday. I don't think we've ever spent this much time away from each other and it's been...weird.

However, I'm grateful that we've had this time apart because it's given me a chance to miss him. I've also really enjoyed waking up and popping the TV on in the bedroom. It was something I used to do before G moved in but as he starts work a lot later than me, I've had to give up getting ready with Good Morning Britain in the background, he's totally worth it though!

Early finishes

Yesterday wasn't a great day for me. I was emotional and in SO much pain (damn you, time of the month) but luckily, we finished work early which meant I could return to my bed, finally take some ibuprofen, and watch the rest of Evil Genius (OMG, how good is it?!).

Girlfriend - Christine and the Queen's

Christine has done it again! I am in love with her new song Girlfriend, it has such an 80's vibe and yeah, you should just all go listen to it right now.

A clean bedroom

Another advantage of G being away is that our bedroom has actually stayed tidy (sorry hun). There's no plates or cups left on the bedside table, no clothes sprawled across the floor, just a nice tidy space.


I've been looking at places for me and G to go for our anniversary in a few weeks. Our first little getaway was to Stratford-upon-Avon and G suggested that we could return there. I found the little cottage we stayed in online and had a flick through the photos on the website, it just brought back all those memories - good and bad!

I decided that we should go somewhere new and I think we're going to have two nights away in Whitstable and Canterbury. If you have any suggestions - things to do, to see, places to eat etc - please send them my way!

Ahh, I needed that. So very much! There's even more to go around too, see what the rest of the wonderful team* have been celebrating so far this week, and if you want to join in yourself, share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with us on Twitter!
