I am now a member of a gym again.
Boyfriend and Housemate do weights, so I did a session with them last week. I then did a lunchtime class at the ladies gym near work the day after, which I thought would be fine because the weights stuff was arms/shoulders and the class was Bums n Tums.
Except I was confusing my days and it was actually Body Blast and we did push-ups and ouch.
Stonehenge today! Because we’ve lived fairly close to it for a year, and never been there. I’m a little disappointed we couldn’t go touch the stones like you used to be able to before people kept stealing bits! It was good to go for a little trip out though :)
Eep, I haven’t posted (or even logged into tumblr) for so long! I’ve been keeping updated with my favourite blogs, because I follow them on bloglovin’ though :)
I didn’t have internet for about a month when I moved house, and then … I just stopped missing it. Things have been coming together, and I guess the only thing that’s fallen by the wayside is posting about it on tumblr. Oh, and my project 365 (photo a day).
Life update: Things are good. The new house is so much nicer and more spacious than the previous one, or indeed any I’ve lived in since I moved out of my parents’. I passed my probationary period at work and got a promotion. I’ve been exercising with people at work at lunch, plus I started running again with my housemate. Things with the boyfriend got rough for a little while, but I think we needed to get some stuff out there because it all came to a head then things have been great since. Moving house was stressful, but it’s done now. I’m starting to get back into having hobbies, like drawing and reading and making things.
So … I don’t really know what I want to do with this blog! I feel weird just leaving it as is, but I’ve had it for nearly 2 years, so I don’t want to just delete everything.
I kind of want to start over, just follow the blogs I follow on Bloglovin’ (there’s probably about 30 of them) and update less regularly. Like post some pictures and a little update once a week or something. That’s more blogspot than tumblr though, no?
I now have a neatly organised and detailed spreadsheet with formulas and headings and filters and graphs/charts to keep track of my finances (y’know, now that looking at my bank account doesn’t make me want to cry).
(I kind of enjoyed making it. Shh.)
(My Dad is an accountant. It must be genetic.)
I live in a city, and I really really miss hiking. I figured next weekend, me and the boyfriend are both free (he drives, I don’t) so we could drive out the city a bit and hike. We don’t live in London or anything, it shouldn’t be too far to go.
Because it’s so hot, I’ve been thinking about going somewhere with a lake or waterfalls or a river. Back home, that’d be super easy - I know of at least 3 a short drive away, 1 in walking distance, and loads if you don’t mind over an hour in the car.
So I looked on google maps, saw a few lakes … then googled them. They all go to websites that have opening times and activities and guided tours and big “no swimming no paddling no going in the water” notices.
Part of the appeal of hiking for me is getting away from crowds of people! (Other hikers and dog walkers etc are cool, but I like it when you get to walk alone for at least parts of the trail).
Guess I need to start looking further afield? The other problem is not knowing what is public right of way, and what is private land like I do back home.
I just want to be in some nature, you know?
I found my suncream! So I’ve taken the beanbag outside to read in the sunshine :)
(I wish our garden was nicer, but hey, we’re renting in a city. I guess we’re lucky to have a garden at all!)
I wish people would stop knocking on the door.
It’s really hot today.
Do you know how annoying it is to keep putting jeans on to answer the door?
So many people at work have hayfever. It’s like being surrounded by people who have a cold, except I can’t catch it.
Today I did 4 of the things on my goals list, but I’m not making a proper post because today/tonight is the only night this week my boyfriend is home. He’s been with family til now, then he’s at a wedding from tomorrow til Sunday. I’ve been kind of enjoying the alone time, but I’m also enjoying having him here now :)
