Happy Friday everyone! I’ve had a really nasty head cold this week that has left me in bed unable to form the most basic of sentences. (Apologies to anyone I’ve corresponded with this week – my emails and messages may have made no sense whatsoever). Last night I fell asleep at 7pm so this post did not get written to go live first thing in the morning as planned!
10 Things That Made Me Happy Lately
>>> My big news of last week was that I successfully completed the Great North Run and in far less time than I thought it might take me! The atmosphere was wonderful and I had more fun than I thought I could running. I also surpassed my fundraising goals, which I am still thrilled about.
>>> We headed up to Newcastle for the GNR the night before and stayed with an old friend and her family and it was so nice to see her. (Plus getting a delicious home-cooked meal in the bargain is especially excellent.)
>>> I attended a lecture on the stereotypes of witches in the modern world and it was really fascinating.
>>> Glasgow was amazing. Eveyone went crazy for Harold. He was like a little rockstar!
>>> We had two insanely good vegan meals in Glasgow and I can’t wait to share them with you.
>>> I’ve found my favourite non-dairy Pumpkin Spice combo: coconut milk. Sam and I shared one whilst walking around and it was pretty blissful.
>>> I’ve started attending a new yoga class that is a bit more dynamic (to offset all the running that I’m not really doing at the moment) and I felt a bit stiff – especially between the shoulder blades but I loved it!
>>> Monday was our first date anniversary. Who would have known that 7 years later I’d still be in the UK and that we’d be married now!
>>> Today is Mabon aka the Autumnal Equinox, so get out there and smell the crisp air or enjoy a nature walk. I might smudge our house this weekend, if I have time.
This weekend is a full-on doula training weekend but I’m super excited about it!
What are your plans for the weekend?
