Weekend Round-Up

*Snow (where else could I start?)
Seeing snow making the world pure, covering it with its white blanket makes me go all goeey and smiley when I'm walking through a pretty wood or park. Yesterday I was walking around with a silly grin on my face the whole time.

Seeing snow when I'm running for the train, or along the long, now treacherous road to work makes me cry. I'll be enjoying it for the rest of the weekend, but please stop by Monday.

S has gone skiing (lucky him) so now I'm all alone in the flat. At the moment, I'm not great at just being with myself. I need to keep myself occupied at every moment during the day to feel ok. But this morning, I woke up extremely late and came into the living room, made myself a coffee and some porridge and plonked myself on the warm, squishy settee to watch a bit of BBC 1's 'Big Questions'. Bliss. Being alone is alright sometimes...However, I still need a plan to keep me on track, so forgive me for sharing my boring plan, but here goes:

AM- go to town to buy an alarm clock (so scared that my phone won't work and I'll be late for work!) treat myself to a Costa coffee and finish my book ('Love in the Time of Cholera' by Gabriel Garcia Marquez if you're asking).

PM- work

I want to finish up by 7ish so that I can have a quick bath and watch a bit of trashy tv.

My diet has been pretty rubbish lately, which is partly why I've not blogged much. I've been running on lots and lots of sugar. Sugary coffee and biscuits and fruit. I realised I need to get back to healthy when I was buzzing around work, literally not able to sit down at lunchtime, and then practically fell asleep at 4pm. These highs and lows are not great, as much as I enjoy the instant highs.

Yesterday I was healthier, back to 3 healthy meals a day and some snacks, porridge and green smoothies.

I hope you're all having good weekends and are enjoying the snow :)


  1. Hope you're feeling a little brighter soon.

  2. Ahh sugar. It's great until the after effects hit us; then it's like WOOOOooooooo <----my depiction of my energy level draining after consuming sugar :)
    I have an alarm on my phone to wake me up, but I always get a little freaked out that it's not going to go off and I'll be late for school/ work/ etc. But then it always goes off on time so I feel silly for waking up 3 times throughout the night JUST to make sure it (the phone) is still. CRAZY, I tell you..
    I think they made a film out of the book you just finished..? With Benjamin Bratt, maybe?
    Hope you have a good week!!

  3. Thanks, dear. :)

    Oh, how I know this feeling of being alone in the flat and keeping myself busy. ^^ Hope you had at least some cozy hours!

    Hugs, Sara.

  4. Okay, obviously I'm massively late to the New Blog Party but nevertheless, please excuse my disgraceful tardiness and concentrate on the fact that I've found you! YAY!

    Don't feel bad about the sugar binging, I blame it on the cold and have basically been living off crumpets and biscuits.

    I'm pretty sure it's totally allowed in January.
