Loving, Needing, Meh! #50

Have I really done 50 weeks of this weekly post? Crazy! Sometimes I wonder what I find to waffle on about - well, not much some weeks, but that's life right? We have reached another Friday and I am pleased to say that it is very sunny here this morning and I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend (and a hair cut!).

This week I have been LOVING:
  • Chatty gym time. It had been a while since I had seen my lovely gym buddy, so on Sunday, what started out as a quick 'I'll warm up next to you on the treadmill' ended up being a 40 minute power walk plus a 20 minute x-trainer workout. Not unusual but just nice to chat the entire time. Now we have decided that Sunday will be our 'chatty workout' day - why not? Once you can decipher what is being said through gasps for breathe you are sorted!
  • Skies (hence the picture above!). I don't know if it has been the same where you guys live but with the UK's very indecisive weather the sunsets have been beautiful. The one above was on Wednesday evening. We had a bit of a rain and then the sun came out, bright and beautiful. We all need to look up a bit more, why would you want to miss this?
  • Counting Crows. I have been reaching for Spotify/YouTube a bit more recently, with a couple of evenings spent alone. Right now I am loving Counting Crows (always a favourite!). I haven't listened to them for a while but I am loving the raw, emotive nature of their lyrics right now (does that say anything about my mood? I don't know!). My favourite songs right now are: 'Untitled (lovesong)' from the Echoes of the Outlaw Roadshow - an amazing live version of an amazing song, 'Sullivan Street' from August & Everything (I couldn't find a link to the live version but either way, great song) and 'Time and Time Again' - maybe find the one on Spotify from the album August & Everything After Live...so beautiful.
  • Chocolate digestives and tea. It shouldn't have happened, but it did. Oops.
  • Estee and Aslans Vlune vlogs! I love Essie Buttons regular YouTube channel as you may already know, but the Vlog Channel is so sweet and refreshing. They are such a cute couple! She is currently vlogging in June (Vlune) every other day, so I look forward to the videos coming out and seeing what they are getting up to every week. I find it comforting watching their videos because I know they will make me laugh and they have a way of drawing you in to feel like part of their family.
This week I have been NEEDING:
  • I mentioned above I am having my hair cut this weekend. When did it get so long! It really is awful! No matter what I do it just sits flat! I need my bounce back man! (I can't get away with saying 'man' in that context can I?!). I am off to the lovely Aveda salon in the gym I train at tomorrow morning...my hairdresser has a job on her hands!
This weeks 'MEH!':
  • Now, I am not the most technical person on the planet, but I am the most easy to stress out, so when I got a text from Joe yesterday saying '...none of the pictures on your blog are showing' I freaked out. I have no idea what it means to 'exceed bandwidth', what on earth is that anyway? (I can only assume it determines the thickness of rubber bands). Apparently I was over my 'bandwidth' so that resulted in all my pictures being replaced with a 'oops, aren't you popular' icon from my storage provider and me having to sort that out, all of a fluster, very quickly. Sorry if you stopped by yesterday only to see lots of grey boxes on my page. DOH!
  • The other thing annoying me more than Brian Blessed this week is the fact that I have developed a swollen, sore throat which, from this morning, is also now a cough. Brilliant. The first time in weeks that I semi made plans with friends and now I am sick. Thank you germs. (Plus my training was going so well, I had big plans for gym sessions this week!).
