30DBC & #littleloves
The prompt for today's 30 day blog challenge is something you're proud of in the last few days, so O thought it was a perfect opportunity to include a weekly 'wrap-up' post and link up with Morgana for Little Loves.
I am currently reading When We Collided by Emery Lord and Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas. Both are really good, I've set myself a target of reading 100 pages a day this month and with these two it's pretty easy. I read Landline by Rainbow Rowell last weekend too, hopefully I'll have a little review of that in my July Reads post later this week.
I've finished Season 8 of Criminal Minds, and started season 2 of Gilmore Girls. The TV has had a well needed break this week, except for the odd film courtesy of Sky Movies (which we recently added to our Virgin TV package). Colin and I watched Taken 3 and San Andreas (starring the Rock) this week, both were pretty gripping and action packed. We managed to get out and watch our softball game this week, I've missed being part of the action and the boys have been begging to come for months! I feel next week will feature more sport, with the Olympics starting - we're currently watching the replay of the opening ceremony!
This week, inspired by a few lovely bloggers and Pinterest (of course) I decided to start a bullet journal. I'm hoping to write a post at the end of the month to detail my experience, but so far I'm really enjoying it. You can't beat pen and paper. At the moment it's quite sparse, I am moving a lot more but am very wary of over-doing it - I can just about do the washing and he dishwasher! We also reorganised the Lego and the junk drawer, so we are making progress! The boys made a start on their Summer Holiday Scrapbooks from Stationery Geek, which is beyond cute!
Shorts galore, luckily the weather has been good! I wore the black playsuit and dress from this post earlier in the week, both times I actually made it out of the house! I bought the boys some cute holiday bits from H&M too, including these cute lion t-shirts that they insisted upon putting on straight away! We're going out to celebrate our wedding anniversary tonight, so I'll be putting my glad rags on.
We've had Heart radio on a lot this week, I love the eclectic mix of music they play!
The thing I'm proud of. I have been so proud of my boys this week, they have had their arguments but overall they have played so well together and looked after me like super stars! I have also started walking again!! I woke up the other morning with the worst pain in my back, so it was actually less painful to put weight on my leg than it was to use the crutches! Since then I've improved a lot, I can walk without the crutches now but often have one with me just in case. I over did it the other morning and yesterday it hurt a lot more than it had been so I'm going to take it easy again today. Fingers crossed for the rest of the week!
