I’m a firm believer in positive energy and I’m one of those people where the weather can reflect my mood. Autumn is my favourite season of them all, because of the colours and chunky boots come back into fashion. I’m not usually a summer girl, not unless it consists of a beach and a cocktail abroad. Let’s face it, British Summer is awkward; it’s always dead sunny when you’re at work and I don’t have air conditioning in my house so I find it difficult to sleep. But this year, I’ve completely welcomed spring.
As the world and his wife knows; the last few months have been hard. I’ve constantly had this cloud of bleugh and negativity around me due to eye drama. Although it isn’t exactly painful, I’ve put up with a constant irritation in my eyes for the past few months. It’s difficult; you still want to go and see people and continue with everyday life, but you know you’re going be a huge ball of misery. I never felt 100% going to work or out for dinner not looking my best or somewhat human. The Geek and I went out with some friends for a curry and I couldn’t wait to get out of the place due to feeling so rubbish.
With eye drama slowly but surely turning around (I hope), I thought I’d write the positive things I’m looking forward to in the next few months. Life can be so mundane and dull at times, you need little things to look forward to and keep you going. So, here are mine:
Weekend Walks with Rufus
This has become one of my favourite past times as a dog owner. There is just something so lovely about going on a dog walk and having a proper chat with The Geek. I’ve said a thousand times before; we go without technology and spend hours talking to each other, which is something hard to come by in our day and age. It’s even better when we stop for a cheeky beer or a cake stop.
Lol, I’ve joined the gym. I was a member of a gym before we had Rufus and really enjoyed it. However, with a puppy and a gym being a good 30 minute drive away it sort of all fell apart. So, with my works scheme I’ve joined the gym across the road from work. The one class I can’t wait to start is yoga. I’ve heard so many people say it’s so relaxing and does wonders for your mind and health. I think it may be good for me to spend an hour switching off and reviving myself.
Our annual trip to Broadstairs will be fast approaching in August. Now that we don’t see our Uni friends as often, its nice to appreciate these trips to the south. Not to mention that Broadstairs is also one of my favourite places in the UK; it’s a gorgeous seaside town full of quaint shops, bars and restaurants.
Developing the Blog
Blogger & The Geek will be 1 in July. That’s crazy for my little slice of action on the internet. I can’t wait to keep developing further and further. It’s one hobby that I’ve really stuck to and it creates so much joy in my life. I’ve received so many opportunities because of this little blog and they keep landing in my inbox daily too!
I’m off to Glasgow next month to hang out with one of my blogging pals, Things Sarah Loves and help out with her event, #DogsThatDine. It’s all for raising money for the Dogs Trust in Glasgow. I’m a total sucker for dog charities and they easily make me more emotional than any human charity. I can’t wait to hang out with Sarah, play and fuss some pooches and see all our hard work pay off. Also, I’ve never been to Glasgow so it’s a cheeky weekend away for me!
