It’s been a good few weeks since I sat down and typed out something for this blog. Any motivation or inspiration I may have had in the past has melted away in recent weeks.
I didn’t feel as though I had anything I wanted to photograph and talk about, nor have I been on any trips lately that have made me want to share it with you.
Rather than sit here and wallow in the lack of inspiration, I thought I’d take a look back at my life lately and celebrate the happiness of the little things in life.
Here are a few things that have been making me smile at life lately.
We had a quick stopover in Oxford a few weekends ago to catch up with Dom’s parents. It included a very quick look around the Weston Library. I’d never been there before but I was pretty amazed at all the light and architecture there. Not your average stuffy old library!
Those few days that felt like spring had arrived? Yeah, they were good days. I can’t wait for the sun to show it’s face again – it makes everybody so much happier.
International Women’s Day. So amazing to see everybody celebrating how great women are. I shared this old photo on Instagram (follow me here) of my Mum and Grandma. My absolute favourite women and I’m not sure what I’d do without them.
Speaking of which, I had a lovely day out with my Mum in Windsor. Since we live on opposite sides of the country we are often looking for somewhere to meet in the middle. Windsor is closer to London than the middle, but still worth the day trip. A charming little town and the Castle is well worth a visit.
I’ve had quite a few meetings at work lately and some of those have been taking place in this amazing building. The Wills Memorial Building has such an amazing ceiling, I’m in awe every time I go there.
Baths have become a bit of a regular thing for me recently. I’ve been visiting Lush quite a lot, a shop I used to avoid on the high street. Even thought it’s a bit embarrassing when the shop assistants ask if I’m looking for presents and actually I’m normally only looking for me! This heart shaped one had little dried roses that floated around the bath. LUSH!
And finally, meeting this friendly little guy in the hardware shop – how appropriate considering it was National Puppy Day yesterday. I had a lovely espresso martini last weekend. I’ve put an ‘eating out ban’ on me and Dom in an effort to save money, be healthier and cook more. Last weekend was the first time we had been out in ages, so I thought a cocktail would be more than appropriate.
So that’s all that’s been happening in my life lately. Hopefully the inspiration will be back soon and I can crack on with creating some content. Have an amazing weekend!
