7 things week 17

Hello from a gloriously sunny East of England! How often do we get to say that and it stay like it for longer than 15 minutes! It’s been a really lovely sunny and warm week, I hope you have all had some sunshine too!

Here are my 7 things that made me happy this week

1. A bbq with friends. Sunday week we went to a friend’s who also have a miniature cockapoo the same colour as Poppy. Unfortunely he is not so much of a fan of the brush as Poppy is so he was looking a little on the short side after a good groom! They played like mad and we took them on two walks and had lovely food and drink in the sun. It was a great day.

2. My car got fixed! Ok so I may have accidentally reversed into the bin and it may have left a very small dent in the boot! But this week it got fixed and I’m so happy to have it looking awesome again.

3. Workouts! I seem to be in a stage where I can manage 4 days in a row before just not wanting to work out the next day and I’m really pleased about that! I feel like I’m making good progress and will hopefully feel great about myself on holiday in a couple of weeks time. This is a workout I did by myself yesterday, I did this whole set 4 times and was done in!

4. Walking. With this glorious weather comes walking and lots of it. I want to walk, I want to get out in the sunshine! Last week I walked 13 miles and this week I’ve walked just under that. This morning we went to Bluebell woods which is near us, We haven’t been since last year and unfortunately were too late to see the bluebells but it was really nice to get out and be some where different. Just going some where new means T managed the almost 3 mile loop easily.

5. The royal wedding! Who doesn’t love weddings? If you forget all the pomp and ceremony and remember they are just two people that love each other and are forced into displaying this to billions of people around the world in an open ceremony, then it is actually really lovely being able to watch a wedding we aren’t technically invited to! My favourite part was when she walked down the aisle and the music was still playing Harry looked at Megan and said ‘You look amazing’. Just beautiful and I just ended up feeling really happy for them.

6. My 2nd choir performance! We sang at a charity walk today and Scott,T and my best friend all came to watch. It was really hot but I think we all sang really well and I was proud to be part of it once again.

7. We have a bird nesting in our garden! This sweet little bird has made a nest in our tree so low down we can easily see! Of course if we pay too much attention to it that reminds Poppy that it’s there and it flies off so now we are in operation ‘ignore the bird’ while it sits on its eggs which we hope will hatch!

8. Doing fun things with T before she goes away for a week. May half term T goes away with her Dad to France for a week before coming back and going on holiday with us for a week. Because of this we are trying to fit as much in as we can at the moment with her so she’s had a pretty good weekend,and so have we. Friday she had a friend round for tea and it was so nice outside they played in the garden for the whole two hours. Saturday she went ice skating with my best friend then had a friend over for a sleep over. We decorated love rocks and hid them then they made bracelets and watched tv. Oh and we got an ice cream from the ice cream van because why not!

Ok so there is 8 this week but that must only be a good thing right!

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend.

Thanks for reading

Midweek Update

Hi everyone,

I hope you’ve all had a good week so far, I feel like I have neglected my blog a little this week as time has just run away with me so here is a little update on what I’ve been upto.

Monday

I had been having a problem with my brace where my wire arch that runs inbetween my two back teeth across the top of my mouth had started to dig in to the roof of my mouth. Now I have had this in for 18 months so I’m not sure what happened for it to suddenly start doing this but it meant I had to take time out of work to go to an emergency ortho appointment which was a pain. My orthodontist was off and so the one I saw initially tried to bend it down but my mouth was so sore from where the wire had dug in he couldn’t do it so he decided to drill the wire arch out!

I cannot tell you how nice it feels to not have a piece of wire sitting across the top of your mouth anymore! No more food getting stuck in it, it getting itchy and just generally feeling annoying! I remember the pain I was in when it first got fitted and how my tongue swelled up,I was swilling salt water for days and could hardly eat and now it’s finally out! It just feels kind of empty in my mouth now and I have to get used to this feeling instead.

Here is an example of the torture device I’ve had in my mouth for the last year and a half!

Monday night I did a HIIT workout with T before our burpee challenge then went to choir practise, we have another performance this weekend so we ran through a whole range of songs ready for that, it was really fun.

Tuesday

So after a walking Poppy a mile and a half before work, it was meant to be a quick walk but we bumped into another cockapoo called Piper and ended up walking a lot further than we meant to, and a busy day at work me and T went to see my friend Lisa to deliver her birthday present. She has recently acquired a tortoise called Sydney so we had a little hold of him before he went to bed too!

After getting home and T to bed I did an ab workout then crashed watching TV for an hour till bed time.

Wednesday

Burpee challenge completed this morning before school,we are up to 16 burpees while the other person completes weighted twists now, its tough!

Today has been equally as busy at work too, I’m in a stage at the moment where I just seem to keep creating work for myself but streamlining processes,and rocking boats, at the same time.

T has had her 2nd swimming lesson with the school, it seems like she had a great time and is really enjoying it.

This evening we walked Poppy, ate and are going to watch a film soon.

We may have walked Poppy to the chip shop to get chips to have with our chicken and veg but after eating really healthily all week and working out every day since Friday I think today is treat day!

Tomorrow will be a standard busy Thursday but with the added fun and games of getting one car dropped off for a couple of days which means Scott is my taxi for a little while! I’m looking forward to another good workout tomorrow evening though and also getting T one rehersal closer to her ballet show which is at the end of June.

I’d love to hear what you have been upto this week,

Thanks for reading

7 things that made me happy week 16

1. Church fete fun. Last Sunday was the annual church fete which we are invited to every year by our friends. The children are given a little score card and have to visit 6 game tents where they receive a stamp for each game they complete,once their card is full they get to visit the prize tent. There is always a lot to see, do and eat there with donkey rides and a climbing wall along with a hog roast and candy floss stall it’s no surprise we had a great few hours.

2. Watching Scott run his marathon. As you may have seen in my previous post I’m just a teeny bit proud of Scott for completing the Milton Keynes marathon in 3 hours 49minutes. Still proud today 😊

3. Frozen fruit! It may seem like a small thing but over the last couple of weeks I’ve started buying bags of frozen fruit, We love soft fruit but often with T at her Dads on the weekend and Scott working it either goes off too quickly or I end up eating it all! Frozen fruit I’ve decided is the way forward! This week we have frozen mango and pineapple and when we want some I just empty it into a bowl and a couple of hours later it’s ready to drizzle some fat free yoghurt on or just eat as is!

4. Reading. This week I have been reading The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks. Now I’m not one for soppy films or books usually choosing to avoid them but this book has me hooked! I only started it last weekend and I’m already on chapter 15, if I have to stop reading and come back to it later I’m finding myself wondering what is going to happen next! I can’t wait to read a bit more when I’ve finished this post actually πŸ˜‚ Nicholas Sparks you have converted me!

5. An unexpected evening! One evening this week we decided to take Poppy for a walk over to the field near where we live, only this particular evening a hot air balloon was setting up to take off from there! We had all never seen one so close so stayed and watched while it was set up and eventually took off! Poppy ran around in circles with another cockapoo and we were in awe of the balloon!

6. Holiday shopping! Who doesn’t love buying summer clothes for their holiday?! When this time of year rolls around we all start to get excited because we know our week away can’t be far off! Here is the little haul T came away with!

7. Tiana’s riding. This week I had asked if they could use the poles in their lesson as T really enjoys doing that, so out the poles came and all 4 girls had such a great lesson riding over them. T just looked happy and confident this week,like she really knew what she was doing and was happy doing it.


There are my 7, I hope you have all had a great week and are still enjoying some nice weather!

7 things that made me happy week 15!

As I sit in my garden after just eating a salad in the blazing sunshine I feel like I have a lot to be happy about! Ok my braces are killing me and am aching from my workout and walk and still have to get all this washing off the line and into the house yet but life is good πŸ˜„

Here are 7 things that made me happy this week,

1.Workout results. So along came the end of the month which meant time to take more progress pictures. (I always take pictures at the end of every month so I can the difference my workouts make, I don’t share them anywhere they are just for me.) So I took the usual picture, front on in my sports bra and joggers and was again pleasantly surprised with the difference since last month. The other picture was of myself in a bikini to see what a difference my squat challenge made. Wowzers. I am so happy I took a month out to do one more squat every day, the difference is amazing! So much so that I am going to continue with some squats every day just to keep this up! Workouts produce results if you keep at it long enough and this is why I love how I feel when I work out 😊

2. Poppy. Come rain or shine this little pooch is always ready for a walk, She has gone a little crazy over tennis balls lately and will drive us nuts if one is stuck behind the sofa even though she has another 5 in her basket! She went through a stage of not wanting cuddles in the evening but lately she will ask to sit on our laps or next to us on the sofa and is happy to be cuddled for some time which we really love. I don’t know if it’s to do with her approaching 2 years old but whatever the reason she now loves to cuddle which makes me happy.

3.Healthy living! I don’t know if it’s the warm weather or the marathon diet Scott is following but I am all over eating well at the minute! I’m loving salads, bananas on toast with quark and cinnamon and this is some chicken I made Scott for lunch at work with a few herbs, pepper and tomato on green veg and sweetcorn.

4. Walking. With the better weather I have been so inspired to walk more and have really enjoyed it. I took Poppy for a 3 mile walk this morning after completing a 25 minute HIIT workout, I must be mad! (Really I just wanted to get out before it got crazy busy everywhere but it still felt good to go that far and I can’t wait to do it again another day.) So far this week I’ve walked 12.6 miles 😁

5. I finished my book! I’ve been reading Chasing the Dream and the story line has just been so gripping I’ve struggled to put it down this week! The main character has so many traumatic events in her life but with it being set in the 1920-1930 England she just had to get on with it and she was a trooper! I loved this book and it’s made me eager to start another one. I’ve put a post it note inside saying Great Read and put it back in my library.

6. A little treat. Ok so it’s good to have a little treat every now and then or what is the motivation to work out? This was my treat this week and it was worth every calorie laden mouthful πŸ˜‚

7. T had a friend round to play. This particular little girl doesn’t speak at school, She is just incredibly shy and so whispers to the teachers, doesn’t answer questions in class or read out loud and whispers to all her friends. But when she comes here and it’s just me and T we can’t stop her talking 😊She is a right little chatterbox and such a sweet little girl. They had a great time playing outside and even eating dinner and ice creams in the garden.

I hope you have all had a great week and I would love to hear something that made you happy!

7 things that made me happy week 13

1. New wellies day! During the winter I live in my wellies, to walk our dog in, to go to the stables to take T riding in, even just to do the school run in when it’s rain and snow. My lovely wellies have been through a lot with me, and it showed! Over the last couple of months more and more holes have developed until Scott could take my complaining no more and used a recent sale to buy me some more! Now we have the hottest day of the year so far I’m really pleased I have new wellies πŸ˜‚

2. Date night! Wedsnesday evening was lovely and after a healthy dinner of grilled chicken and rice we walked to the local pub and had a drink next to the golf course. I’ve missed sitting in a beer garden relaxing in the sun and am so happy these days may be coming back!

3. Our Ed Sheeran tickets arrived!! 😁 You know when it gets close to a gig and you start to worry if your tickets will arrive ok? Well no more worrying for me because I think the neighbours in the next street now know they have arrived! Super super excited for this day to come around.

4. Warm weather! Our day off this week was a beauty! 24 degrees and wall to wall blue skies meant to was time to turn the heating off and dust off the shorts! β˜‰After spending the morning stocking up on suncream, school summer dresses and sunhats for T I mowed the lawn and cleaned the fire place out ready for Summer! We had lunch in the garden and it really felt like summer was on its way!

5. Our tree came into blossom. It’s always this time of year it really starts to feel like warmer weather is on its way when our tree blossoms. It just makes our garden look so pretty and I love the couple of weeks we get of it.

6. We had our first dinner in the garden! It was so nice to eat outside again and we all really enjoyed it.

7. I had friends over for dinner! Friday I had three friends over for pizza and drinks and we had such a fun evening! It’s been ages since I had an evening like that where everyone turns up, everyone is in a great mood and everything just goes to plan! After a few people people letting me down at the last minute for a night out last year for a little celebration meal I had felt disheartened and haven’t really tried to arrange much with more than 1 or 2 people since. Last night reminded me why it is good to have friends and it really was good for my soul.

I hope you have all had a great week and I would love to hear what you have got upto that made you happy!

Training Update!

At the start of this month T and I decided to start a squat challenge. We started on 30 and have added one more every day since.

It’s been tough for me, T is a little trooper, but we are still going! 48 squats today and I’m feeling proud we have stuck at it!

Scott has been doing the same but with press ups. He has also been feeling it but is determined to keep going too!

I’ve walked 26.1 miles so far this month! This is not counting my daily steps but is just every time I go for a walk with Poppy and record it on my phone.

T and I have continued with our kettle bell workouts too completing 10 so far this month mainly focusing on abs.

The nicer weather is definitely a boost to excercise. With lighter evenings I’m finding it less of a struggle to feel motivated and am finding myself doing workouts on sunny days when I’m on own just because I have time.

The main thing is T is still really enjoying excercising with us and now the weather is starting to warm up hopefully we will all be able to take more walks and get more excercise in as a family. Scott and T managed a run round the lake on Monday which was a great start!

I’m already on to the fruit salads and more colourful lunch boxes and have lots of ideas for healthy meal prep which I will share soon. As Scott continues training for his marathon in a couple of weeks we need to make sure he has plenty of protein in his diet so prep will be key!

7 things that made me happy week 12

1. Cooking for my Nan. My Nan has lived on her own a long time and doesn’t have anyone cook for her much so I was really pleased to be able to make dinner and get all tidied up without her having to do anything.

Here is the chicken, garlic and thyme traybake I made with squash, tomatoes and new potatoes. Served with soft fresh bread it was so tasty!

2. Seeing the bond between these two. T and Poppy are best friends. They adore each other unconditionally and there is nothing that could replace this bond. T won’t ever have a brother or sister so she treats Poppy very much like a baby at times cuddling her and carrying her around but she has also had a big part to play in her training and is great at telling Poppy what to do, I don’t know where she gets that from! The responsibility of having a pet is something I am so glad we have been able to give T and she has developed this and not only has a dog but also a companion for many years to come.

3. Watching T and Scott’s together. T is very much a Mummy’s girl but if we have a week off she will often end up a lot closer to Scott by the end of the week. This week has been no different. Yesterday Scott bathed her and washed and dried her hair while showing her how to use her new snorkel in preparation for holiday and I washed my car. They were completely fine without me and got all cuddled up together on the sofa watching tv in the evening. I love their bond and feel blessed they have been able to get so close up until now. Here is a photo of them back in 2014.

4. Spending time with my Nan. It’s no secret I’m not close to my Mum and often think of my Nan more as my Mum. I ring my Nan a couple of times a week,She’s the one I text if anything is wrong or one of us has had an achievement. She is a massive part of our lives and knows what we are all doing because she involves her self. The only thing is she lives 2 hours away so we don’t see her anywhere near as much as we would like. I often envy Scott being able to go and see his parents on a day off as I would love to just pop to see my Nan but have to make do with video calls. Spending these few days with her was really great and I now can’t wait to take her on holiday with us in June.

5. Feeling closer as a couple. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say this but life is busy, tiring, stressful and sometimes hard work. We all need time away to unwind, relax and remember why we chose to spend the rest of our lives together in the first place. Having this time together makes us feel more connected because there is no rush to get things done before going to bed early to get up for work, we can take the time to just enjoy being together as a family and as a couple. Things are so often all about being parents that it’s hard to make time to appreciate each other but this is important. Just for a few days to put aside all the stress makes the world of difference and before you know it you have fallen in love all over again.

6. T’s innocent and funny little mind. A few days ago we were all watching TV and someone said ‘if there is something you want to do you should just go and do it, don’t let anyone stand in your way’, She sat up and said ‘ Well that’s not right because I want to be a unicorn but I can’t can I!’ πŸ˜‚

Yesterday she was eating breakfast when she dropped her toast in her beans and just said ‘faceplant!’ πŸ˜„ I didn’t even know she knew that word.

7. Attending a Christening. Today was our friends little girls Christening and it was a lovely little ceremony. T loves Sienna to bits and enjoyed giving her a little cuddle afterwards. It was really nice to see so many people showing love towards this little girl and I was very impressed with how brave she was when the water ran down her head during the ceremony! I always get a feeling of security after a Christening, It’s like you know that little person will be alright now, They have Godparents to help guide them through life too.

This is one of the reasons I decided to give T Godparents even though she wasn’t Christened. It’s nice to know she has people in her life who she can turn to should she need them that aren’t her parents.

T and Sienna

I would love to hear something that has made you happy over the last week, looking past the obvious usually makes me realise there is so much more to be happy about than you first think.

Fun Friday!

So today I thought I would share what we have been doing the last few days during our week off together.

Wednesday

We had a friend of T’s round all day in order to share the childcare costs between a friend and myself so we took the girls swimming and then to Mcds for lunch. It was a chilled afternoon after we all were shattered from swimming and the weather was cold and wet.

After our friends left we set off to stay with my Nan for a few days in Essex. We have all been looking forward to coming as we haven’t seen her since Christmas and we all just love going there.

Thursday

Scott went on a long run during the morning for some more marathon prep and us girls all went shopping! We found a few summer bits for T and picked up some ingredients for dinner.

During the day we walked the dogs twice, Baker is a Lhasapso and him and Poppy get on so well. They play and chase and just love each other’s company.

I made us all a chicken traybake for dinner which turned out really tasty!

Then we played Essex monopoly for over 2 hours and had such a fun evening.

Friday

Today we had a lazy morning and then made our way to the seafront! I’ve been visiting the pier here since I was born and love taking T there. The weather was really chilly but that didn’t stop us having lots of fun winning prizes for T and eating a bag of hot doughnuts between us 😁

We brought some love rocks to hide at the seaside too so left them both near the pier and hope they found good homes!

We have walked the dogs twice again today, been to see some friends this afternoon and watched a film this evening after having fish and chips for dinner! 😊

It’s amazing how relaxed and at home you can feel just being back in a house you have known since you were born doing things you have done every year since you can remember.

I would love to hear what your favourite thing to do at the seaside is?

What did you do as a child that you love sharing with your family now?

Our family walks and why they don’t always turn out quite so perfect

Monday

It was a wet and miserable day, light rain coming down but I woke up determined to make the most of the day. All three of us were here and the rain wasn’t that bad that it warranted an inside day so we packed a picnic and drove half an hour to some local woods. We were all wrapped up in our hoods and wellies and Poppy had her coat on, we were prepared to eat the picnic in the car if we had to!

When we got there it was still lightly raining but nothing too bad and there was a nature trail for T to follow on wooden boards which took our mind off the rain.

We made it to the play area and Scott and T climbed into the crows nest, a little further down we found some purpose built huts and had our picnic in there.

We explored woods, collected pine cones and splashed in puddles, we even all ran up a huge hill, it was a really fun walk and Poppy had a nice warm bath when she got home.

Tuesday

After lunch we decided to take Scott and T’s bikes and Poppy round the local country park. We had spoken about walking on just the paths as it would still be muddy from the recent floods and Poppy was so clean and fluffy from yesterday.

Clearly we both had different ideas about where this walk was going! Scott wanted to show me a ramp him and T had found which was off the path into some woods and was very muddy.

Afterwards we carried on along a path that was still partly flooded and Poppy was getting blacker by the second. My little white trainers- perfect for paths, not so much for flooded and muddy areas were caked in mud and I was not enjoying this walk!

We turned round after some walkers told us the path ahead was impassable and made our way through the park and home.

I was in a grump at the state of Poppy, the state of my trainers, how dirty Scott and T were,well pretty much everything I’ll be honest!

It’s not that I can’t do mud, I just need warning. If I know we will be getting muddy and exploring flood plains and burst river banks I am fine because this is the plan but sudden muddiness does not make for a happy Mummy/wife!!

So two baths in 24 hours and two lots of muddy clothes washed and hung out and I am well and truly ready for Summer!!!

7 things that made me happy week 11

So this week hasn’t been my happiest because I haven’t had my girl home, but I think looking back at the little things will make me realise that it’s not been all bad and there are still things worth appreciating even when you are missing your little person.

1. A sunny after work walk with Poppy. Tuesday was one of those days, no one wanted to be back at work after the Easter bank holidays and it was crazy busy with a load of extra work thrown in for good measure. Things weren’t as I was expecting when I got into work which didn’t set me up in the best mood and the happiest I was all day was when I stepped foot out of that building at 5pm. I don’t hate the place but sometimes it’s like that for everyone right? Me and Poppy just took off and walked round the field for a little while making the most of the sunshine while Scott was on a run. It was so great to be outdoors and I could literally feel the stress blowing away with the wind.

2. Progress pictures. No I’m not about to post them on here but I have been taking them every month since January when I started working out again. Progress for me is motivation, when I can see a difference I am so much more likely to continue working out. This month I really saw a difference and it felt good! Gone are the Christmas inches and there are now clear lines running down my abs! This has spurred me on even more and I’ve worked out 3 times again this week even without my little workout buddy.

3. My squat challenge. How can squats make you happy? Well because a few months ago I really wasn’t very good at them, then I got to doing them with T and improved slightly. Now I’ve set myself a challenge to do one more every day in April starting on 30 and I’m so far really enjoying it! I’m now up to 35 and still feeling good. Scott is doing the same with press ups so we are both encouraging each other and reminding the other one to do it which is also great motivation. Here’s to still feeling happy about it next week! πŸ˜‚

4. Being implusive. So yesterday I worked and when I came out I was meant to be going food shopping but when I rang Scott to check if he wanted anything he was down at our local country park with his parents taking Poppy for a walk round to see the floods. It was a beautiful day down there and I was so jealous that I decided the food shopping could wait a day and came home, got changed and speed walked down to meet them! It was a lovely 2 mile walk and was nice to chat with both of them in turn while walking along, sometimes things can be more than a little chaotic when all the family are at their house so it’s not often we get to chat like that and it was way more fun than food shopping!

5. My beautiful flowers. Monday my best friend came round to see me and thought I sounded a little fed up on my blog so bought me a gorgeous bunch of flowers and a little bottle of prosecco ❀ They have come out and now look stunning and every time I look at them I think of her, Thank you Em xx

6. Scott made the 20 mile mark. My husband is training for a marathon and yesterday hit his longest run so far at 20 miles. I was so happy for him as he’s had a tough week with flooding everywhere stopping him from going too far and injuries that keep rearing their heads so it was touch and go if he would even run yesterday but he did and I’m so pleased he’s that one step further in his training.

7. T had a fantastic pony day. So today T came home!! 😁 Well for all of 20 minutes before we took her over the road to the stables where we left her until 4pm! No we didn’t abandon her to the horses, not that she would mind one bit if we did, but she had booked on an Outdoor Adventure day with a friend who rides in her lesson. She has done 3 pony days before but this was the first Outdoor Adventure one and her first this year. It’s no secret horse riding isn’t a cheap hobby so we tend to wait until the warmer weather comes before we start these not just because she will enjoy it more when it’s not -9 out there but also because we can usually stretch to one by around the Easter holidays. So after dropping her off and getting this one picture of the girls grooming the ponies she tells me she rode a 2 hour hack before more grooming, lunch, feeding the horses, a lesson in the school which was more of a fun games lesson really, more grooming and tacking up ponies for lessons! She had a great time and was so pleased with everything she had done when she came home which makes spending another day without her totally worthwhile 😊

That’s it, there are my 7, I would love to hear what has made you happy this week, however big or small!

Thanks for reading
