Weekly Roundup 04/08/19 – 10/08/19


I finished reading Lisa Jewell’s The Girls early in the week and have now started a book called The Friend by Teresa Driscoll which I had downloaded to my Kindle a while ago and had forgotten about!  So far I am really enjoying it and am about 1/3 of the way through!  I also received August’s edition of Blogosphere Magazine which I have been dipping into over the past week.

I have been watching a series on Netflix called Safe which I have just finished!  I am now watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.  I have recently rediscovered my love for “Four in a Bed” and have been watching that occasionally in the evening.

There is a playlist on Spotify called 90’s Indie by Filtr UK which has got so many brilliant tracks on it which I have been listening to this week!

This week I have been enjoying salads and sandwiches at lunchtimes and overnight oats with fruit for breakfast but with the weather changing, I have also enjoyed a couple of bowls of pasta with mixed vegetables and nooch (nutritional yeast flakes) on top of an evening.

I’ve been drinking lots of water this week though sometimes I feel like making it more interesting.  I have been adding Apple and Mango squash or Twinings Cold Infuse tea bags to my water.  I have also been enjoying Tetley Vanilla Redbush tea.

I have been spending a lot of my time, (when not working), researching and reading up about my new project.  I have also been setting up a new website to showcase my ideas (more details will be revealed soon!!!).  I have also been playing around with my bullet journal and blog schedule for the next few months.

I’ve been having weird headaches on and off for the first part of the week, I couldn’t decide if they were because of my sinuses, hayfever, air pressure or if it wasn’t a real headache and was caused by toothache.  I eventually found the cause…I had given up all sugars (except natural sugars) which was a massive chunk to just ditch in one go.  My body went into withdrawal and the headaches were caused by that.  I have since re-introduced some sugars into my diet and am going to wean myself off the sugars slowly rather than do it in one go.  Other than the headaches, I have been feeling pretty good, a lot of my plans and ideas are falling into place which has been a relief and also really exciting!  I have been able to have a few early nights too which has helped me to feel calm and rested the next day.

How has your week been?  What have you been up to?  I’d love to hear in the comments!
