“the flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all”

I have started making a garden! I have made a planter for some of my plants. We bought cabbage plants, sugarsnap pea plants and a herb selection. We have planted tomato seeds – cherry and salad, spring onions, runner beans, carrots, mixed salad leaves, little gem lettuces, strawberries and chilli plants. I also have 10 sunflower plants trying to grow. As well as all this I still have a selection of oriental salad leaves to plant along with 50 flower bulbs, and a selection of pretty ground covering flowers. Me and Scott have spent our time searchimf biologivL ways if deterring pests and how to build butterfly houses and hedgehog homes! I’m not entirely sure what has spurred this sudden interest in gardening and growing of things but it’s so much fun! Even if he isn’t loving it, I’m certainly enjoying it! He seems to be getting fed up of me talking about it haha. Oh well. Here is a picture of my half finished, sort of rockery & a few of my plants, lol.

I’ll update soon! Xoxo

“Monday morning feels”

Monday. I don’t usually work Monday so I don’t get this start of week downer. I have a productive day, spent with my partner & his little girl, walking in the woods, painting, baking etc. Today I have to go to work and I get Friday off instead. Which doesn’t really help me. BUT I will make good choices today, I’ve already made lunch – speedy lentil curry with courgettes, carrots and onions and a fruit salad of pear, grapes & strawberries. I’ll buy a yogurt at work. 

I’m in a better headspace than last week so fingers crossed it stays that way. I did not make good food choices last week and it will definitely show on the scale this evening at weigh in. Oopsy. I was so annoyed aty last weeks weigh in, I was 100% on plan and a maintained for a 2nd week running, so I lost my way with it a little last week, I’ll get back on it as of now. Have a good Monday guys, xoxo.

“sometimes it’s okay if the only thing you did today was breathe”

‚ÄčNot having many good “mental health” days recently and I couldn’t tell you why. So today that is what I am trying to focus on before I go back to work. Colouring in, catching up on my TV programmes, bubble baths & good comfort food – today it’s leftover pasta and red sauce from the lasagne we made last night and loads of cheese, with a bowl of speedy fruit salad! Doesn’t ever look pretty but always tastes bomb AF.
