Keeping Busy

Since I have a lot of time on my hand I need to keep myself busy, especially now the weather is turning I can see myself getting stuck in a rut, the sofa and blanket rut! The weather can really affect my mood and drain my motivation, I have to plan things to try and stay productive otherwise I’ll feel guilty that I’ve wasted my day.

Here are some of the things I’ve been up to:

(Excuse the non-pose! I wasn’t ready!) We took a walk to the village via the meadow, it’s nice having it so close by. One minute you are by a busy road and the next minute it feels like you are far away in a rural countryside.

After the walk I decided it was about time I finish my granny crochet cushion once and for all! It’s been hanging around for months as I’ve not been motivated with crafting lately. It was nice to get it complete and use it.

I spent some time with Ziggy, at the moment his favourite toy is this piece of brown twine. He loves it!

Yesterday I had the day to myself and decided to re-pot this jade plant that was given to me my a colleague who is retiring. She knows how much I like plants and also gave me an aloe vera plant too.

I decided to bake a cake for a friend who visited me today.

I made coffee and walnut cake, I don’t tend to make this much, I’m not sure why as I do like a good coffee and walnut cake. My friend said it was really good, I cut myself a piece that was too big and had to leave some!

I have a wedding to attend on Thursday, it’s only for the evening-do so I’ll have time hang out with my friend before hand and do a bit of shopping and just spend time with her. With my job a lot of the time I am drained by the weekend so it’s hard to see friends, however I am very good at keeping in contact by texting or using twitter and instagram, though it’s not always returned. Lately I have thought about how some people I know are rather self absorbed and how a nice text or a message does not take too much effort to keep in touch. I am the type that will always respond to a message as I think it’s rude if you don’t, especially because someone has taken the time to contact you. I’d like to know why some people think it’s ok not to respond!

To end on a happy note, aswell as seeing a few friends this week I am meeting an old friend of mine (from my fashion buying days) in Brighton for a day of eating and shopping in two weeks time! I did leave a lot of friends behind in London when I moved down here so it’s extra special seeing them when I can. If anyone has any recommendations for things to eat and do in Brighton I would love to hear from you. 🙂
