It’s been a busy couple of weeks but I’m planning a comeback – blogging has been the last thing on my mind whilst I’ve been decorating, moving and working like crazy! But I miss it and I still end up taking photos of everything anyway.
So what have I been up to?
I’ve been away with work again, this time to the Cotswolds – it’s a beautiful place and the people were all so friendly and overly welcoming!
On arrival at my simple B&B I was asked if I wanted tea, the answer was obviously yes…..and then tea arrived in a teapot with cups and saucers and homemade flapjack. How cute!
It instantly made me feel welcomed and I loved it, staying in different places can sometimes be daunting on your own.
I even managed a walk which was great, lovely to get some fresh air after work and seeing places like the canal above. The boats were beautiful.
I’ve also managed to make it out with some work friends which was lovely as I’ve not been out for drinks for a while. I piled on my make up and went for pinks and loads of liner, not something I would do every day.
I even got to wear a new dress out, this was from Want That Trend and cost £21.95. It’s perfect for nights out, the skater style is really flattering and I love the flowers too.
With all of the decorating, moving, eating and drinking it has been a bit of a task to keep up my healthy regime and exercise.
I have a lot of routes around my new house and I’ve been taking my dog for a few walks and have even been for a run or two. I definitely need to up my game though, sitting at a desk all day isn’t doing me any favours!
I’ve been trying to keep the majority of my meals on track, and have been eating good breakfasts and taking lunch to work every day.
My downfall at the moment is the evenings, I normally manage to eat a fairly healthy evening meal but afterwards I always crave something sweet!
Chia seed pudding is my latest fave – it can’t be as unhealthy as all of the other desserts and treats that are on offer can it??
Admittedly I made the mistake of mixing chia seeds, almond milk and chocolate peanut butter together and that’s not quite as healthy! It was actually divine though, and I know that when I really really deserve a treat it’s exactly what I will be whipping up!
I’ve started getting bored with my meals now that I’ve been moved back out for 2 months and cooking the same kind of things. I need to broaden my horizons!
If you have any new recipes you’ve tried lately and have found to be amazing please send them my way – I was even tempted to make soup this weekend because of the horrible weather!
What have you been up to recently? Have you travelled anywhere new?
What’s your favourite variation of chia seed pudding?
