It’s been a while since I’ve done a life post and to be honest I’ve got so much to share it’s been a bit of a whirlwind. My job that I haven’t posted about much since I started it back in October has been progressing really well. There’s a lot of training and it can be hard work, sometimes all I can do when I finish is get home and sleep! But I’m so much happier than I was in my old job and the people I work with are really nice.
As part of my job I will be travelling around visiting customer sites to provide things like training and assistance – cue lots of meals out that work have paid for. I have been loving trying out lots of new restaurants but I don’t think my expanding waistline will be!
I’ve mainly been to Salisbury so far which wasn’t somewhere I had been before – I stopped at Bills for food which was good as I’d never been there and their pink lemonade was beautiful! The bottle was cute to start with the but it tasted amazing and I love that they put fruit in with it too.
The food was also amazing and I had the chicken, winter coleslaw and sweet potato chips. I was so hungry but after this I was full and could have slept for hours – the best kind of feeling.
I’ve also been checking out the Wagamamas – salmon yaki soba is my new favourite thing! My mum does a similar meal with salmon, stir fried veg and noodles but this is also really good. It’s my favourite kind of food!
I have also tried to have a walk most evenings to get some fresh air and attempt to combat the food I’ve been scoffing. Doing some wandering ensured that I cam across the beautiful Salisbury Cathedral. It’s a shame it’s always been dark when I’ve been there as I imagine it would look beautiful in daylight and I’d love to see inside too.
Totally changing topic me and M went to our friends for an overnight stay and I decided to make some snacks to take with us – being Harry Potter obsessed I made some biscuits using my mums owl shaped cutter, they were just like shortbread and a definite hit!
With this month’s pay day I was determined not to spend my money on make up, I need to save some money and also work through my massive pile of products. I’ve been looking into buying a house (more on this soon!) and one thing I really want is a massive bookcase. I have tonnes of books, new and old leather type ones that I’d love to make a feature of.
The Barnes and Noble books are something that you just cannot ignore, not only do they have most childhood books available but also the classics too. I can’t rave about them enough and the Alice in Wonderland book was my faovurite…..until I saw these online and had to buy them!
Gray’s Anatomy is the absolute Bible for any medic interested individual. It even has plenty of anatomy drawings, some points are outdated so using this to teach yourself medicine would be a bad idea but nevertheless its very interesting and one that I just had to have on my shelf.
I also couldn’t help but notice the beautiful Secret Garden book too, it had a few % off on Amazon and also there weren’t many left so I panicked and snapped one up!
I love the covers as they are but the quote on the back is lush!
I’m finishing today’s post with a picture of my dog after an extremely rainy walk – my parents went away for a holiday and left us in charge, the horrible weather and being ditched by my dad left him looking a little bit sad! Look at those eyes!
