Talk about finding it hard to get back into the swing of things!! I've been meaning to get back onto this blog for a few days, and then always find some other distraction/ excuse... I don't know what's been going on really, I see things and still have the "ooh-this-would-be-great-on-the-blog!" feeling but then I never get my finger out and bother taking a photo of said thing/ item. In all honesty I've been a little down since coming back. For several reasons really.
First of all, the weather has been fairly miserable and after waking up day in day out for a month to pure hot sun, it's a little difficult getting back into the swing of things. Let's face it, it's baltic out there today.
Secondly, I've come down with a cold. Think constant rather repulsive sneezing and a red potato for a nose. Not my sexiest look.
Thirdly, I've put 1kg back on. I went for 2 runs and a session at the swimming pool last week, but my ferocious eating habits have crept back on me and it's hard to fight back. I don't want to let things slip, I'm feeling so much better for this little bit of weight loss, I don't want to ruin it all but it's hard. It just never gets easy does it?!
Fourthly, Boyfriend and I have been arguing a lot lately. Now we're more of the arguing type anyway, we have very differing opinions on a lot of things, but I think that's ok. But recently, well, not so ok. Tiring arguments. Simply unnecessary but very stressful and mood sapping nonetheless.
Finally, work is back to the same old crap and this morning I was wondering whether handing in my resignation was a wise move. [Note to self: this is never a wise move when all you really want is a day off sick, in bed, with a hot water bottle for company instead of annoying colleagues]
So there, sorry for the interlude, I hope to get back to proper blogging very soon indeed. I have so much to show you, not only my Dubai photos, but also photos of a little day trip we did yesterday, a little bit of crafting, some culinary experiments (I emphasize the use of the word experiment here, it doesn't always come out looking like in the cookbook, I have proof!). And I want to get myself into gear soonish because we have a week of holiday looming - I honestly can't wait! - but that means more blogging break and more photos to show! You never know, I might do the unimaginable and come back tonight with another post. Don't hold your breath though. I'm being cooked the Boyfriend special - spaghetti bolognese - and have an evening of Waterloo Road on i-player ligned up - priorities, priorities. ;-)
