I’ve been thinking lately that I want to make this blog a more personal space. As much as I love writing about Minimalism and sharing what I am learning so far I also want this blog to be a space to remember all the good things in life when I look back on it for years to come.
I recently read the blog http://thetomshouse.blogspot.co.uk/ by the lovely Sam. There is a group of inspirational ladies who all take part in Wonderful Wednesdays where they celebrate life’s little joys. The WW family look’s to be growing all the time and was originally started by http://sallytangle.blogspot.co.uk/ so go check her out.
So without further ado here is my first Wonderful Wednesday post!
Good morning and happy Wednesday! I’m so glad to be writing this post today as work has been rather stressful and tiring and sometimes it’s necessary to focus on the good stuff in life. I’ve been suffering with some anxiety because of it so some self-care is needed. Despite this there have been some good things in the last week:
Lots of good food & company
Me and the hubby went on a date night last Friday to Cote which is a French restaurant. The food was to die for and I want to go back again as soon as possible! We also spent the Saturday evening with friends P&K to see their new house and have a take-away and then Sunday with other friends R&C and they cooked us a glorious Sunday roast dinner. The weekend was full of good food and time with loved ones and it was great.
Twining’s Ginger & Lemon Herbal Tea
My lovely friend made me a cup of this at the weekend with a spoonful of honey. I don’t usually like herbal tea but this was delicious and made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I bought a small box for myself and it’s my new favourite beverage of choice. It makes me feel calm and relaxed.
I took my camera out at the weekend to Danson Park with my father-in-law and we had a great time mooching about taking photos. I had some photos to capture for my photography course and I’m really proud of what I captured. I really enjoy these days out just the two of us and as an added bonus the mother-in-law makes us a big breakfast for when we get back. That paired with a hot cup of tea makes for a wonderful start to the day.
Me and the hubby don’t usually celebrate Valentines but this year was the first one as husband and wife so we got each other little gifts. I bought him a bottle of Sailor Jerry’s Spiced Rum (his favourite) and he got me a bunch of lilies and two new house plants. Lately I’ve been filling our home with plants and learning to care for them. They really brighten up the place and I hope to add more to the little family.
Ruby our kitty
We have a 3-year-old cat called Ruby and she is a tenacious loving little ball of fluff. Lately she’s been rather soppy and enjoying cuddles and tummy rubs. She isn’t a lap cat but she is very affectionate and playful and I’ve really appreciated her greeting me when I get home at the moment.
The lovely Sally is the one who got me thinking about the warm and fuzzies over on Sally Tangle. There’s even more lovely folks who join in on the happiness and mid week merriment so be sure to pop over to them for more of the good stuff – Michelle, Helen, Emma, Kate, Cat, Jo, Kerri, Laura, Sarah, Jasmin, Peta , Elenor & Sam. Don’t forget to check out the #wonderfulwednesday on Twitter too, the WW family is growing all the time!
