Nope, I'm not in France or anything; although I've been away so long you may have thought I'd disappeared off there ;)
So today is Friday and it's the weekend again - it is astonishingly crazy how the weeks are running off, sprinting even.......towards something better: the summer perhaps?! Even the evenings are getting lighter already - when I left work at 5pm yesterday it was quite light still. Last week it was complete darkness! Funny how everything seems to creep upon you with just a teeny moments notice isn't it?
So what have I been up to since my last post? Well, quite a lot and not enough all at the same time - if that makes sense?
Oh, Happy New Year by the way!
So I've been spending a lot of time listing, packaging and delivering to the post office many items from my online vintage shop. It's been fun so far.....really hard work mainly - especially when juggling it with normal life too...... I think I may well need to make a schedule or timetable type thing to keep me on track......to organise my time better. It's like I have a thousand things to think about all of the time......and actually, I've been quite assertive recently......but just not with blogging it seems.
Since the new year I've taken up boot camp exercise classes twice a week. On my first week of bootcamp I literally couldn't breathe with all the cardio work - I felt so unfit and weak; I never realised I was so bad, so I knew I'd made the right decision to improve my health, even if it was painful at the beginning.
Gav and I are still working our way through anything Star Trek. We completed all 7 series of The Next Generation just before Christmas - and I miss watching it completely -haha! It's true!
We've then been watching Star Trek the original series.....the one with Kirk and Spock - and although it's visually fantastic to watch, for the whole retro aspect - we've kind of given up halfway through series 2 and started on the films instead.
I've also been listing so, so many items on ebay too, for the charity shop I work at - that takes up a crazy amount of my time......but I'm making lots of money for them so that's good!
Last weekend, Gav and I popped down to London for the weekend to stay with friends.........it's made me realise that we don't spend enough time together. I suppose that happens to many couples that are juggling "normal life" between them?!
London was lovely though, we went to this teeny Irish pub; they had a folk band playing all the old Irish classics - I could have stayed there all night jigging around!
On the Saturday we had breakfast at lunchtime, then wandered around the cemetery on Stoke Newington's Church Street......unfortunately it had begun to rain by then; where there's rain, there's mud! Alas we didn't stay long. I just wanted to show Gav how crazily amazing this cemetery is - besides, last time I came I didn't have my camera with me.
Then we popped along to Beyond Retro; Gav's favourite part of the weekend, haha - but to be fair, it was payday......and we are girls in London, in walking distance to vintage fabulousness!
Later we went to watch Peeping Tom at the Barbican theatre.......I'm still trying to work out what that was all about if I'm honest! We all then went for an amazing curry and beer on brick lane :)
Fantastic weekend - makes you realise what life is all about!
.....and if I could move to London? Perfect!
I do miss blogging; I know I've been rather sporadic lately to say the least; I just don't want to blog about the mundane boring things I've been up to..........aaannnnd, I'm still trying to lose this extra weight. It seems the older I get, I put the pounds on easier - and it takes longer to lose it. I think my body wants to be spongy haha!
I did the slimfast plan for two weeks after new year and didn't lose a single bloody pound! Gutted!! So really, I'm not too keen, confident or comfortable to be in front of the camera right now..........so all my blogging ideas are a little up in the air at the minute. I'm going to do slimming world again I think, I lost a stone last time on SW and got to my perfect weight........I need to be happy in my own skin again, besides: I want to wear all my lovely vintage summer dresses again this year :D
Ok, so really that's about it.........for now
Until next time...
