Loving, Needing, Meh! #58

Joe and I are now the proud owners of two weeks off (hurrah!) - I will still be blogging away merrily though, no fear good people (unless you want a rest from me of course?!). The week running up to a holiday for me is both exciting and stressful because I am trying to get everything done so I can switch off and try not to worry for 14 whole days and another part of me is all 'come on Friday!' and throwing caution to the wind! But it is here, the day, Friday! Let's round up what has been happening this week shall we?

This week I have been LOVING:
  • Costas peach and lemonade on ice...oh my! Heavenly goodness in a plastic cup with a straw! 
  • A full on health overhaul. It is happening. Yesterday I was working from home and got up and went to the gym for 6.30am. I felt buzzing and ready for the day. I have really sorted the nutrition this week too; I've increased my protein intake and reduced the carbs down a notch. The biggest thing for me is not having things like cereal bars that are full of sugar right before bed just because I have a cup of tea (I need training that tea can be drunk without a companion!). Instead of that I am just drinking water and ending the day with a good protein shake made with water to feed and help heal the body over night. 
  • Teaching Joe about Twitter. He is running his bands Twitter Page now so go and follow and check it out if you fancy. You can also find them on Sound Cloud. I love their song 'Into the Air'.
  • Lots of skincare samples in my magazines...let's face it, I can't afford them so it is nice to have a little insight into how young I could be looking!
  • Seeing Joe get all soppy over all the cats on the cats protection website. From someone who, not so long ago, didn't want to go near any animals he is doing pretty well.
  • (Am I allowed to say our new hoover?) Our new hoover. Every darn hoover I have ever owned has been beyond rubbish, I would have more success sucking up the dust through a straw (?!). As an early wedding present my mum and dad brought us a ruddy awesome hoover that we got all excited about as we pushed it around the just hoovered lounge and it picked up loads of floor junk! I know I am officially needing more to do in my life when I spend an evening saying to Joe 'just look at that carpet! It's amazing...there's hoover lines on the floor...I can't wait to do the whole house'...help me.
This week I have been NEEDING:
  • A girly movie night. It is not often that I force Joe to watch a film that I really like that I don't think he will, in fact, I don't believe I have ever done that, but I am feeling a 'Notebook' night coming on. I adore that film and may have to throw it out there as an option this weekend. Maybe I can balance it out with some guitar hero Metallica afterwards.
This weeks 'MEH!':
  • It appears that we have made quite the cosy home for a False-Widow spider this week. I didn't know they even existed until I got a frantic call from Joe on Tuesday night to say that he'd found one. He went on to give me far too many details about the markings on its back matching all the ones online (even the more reliable source of online reference 'The Natural History Museum' seemed to agree with his identification). Being ridiculously terrified of spiders you can probably imagine I wasn't over the moon with this news. I was then informed that they won't kill you but can make you bloody poorly with their bite and / or make your bitten limb resemble something from a zombie movie. Fabulous. Thoughts people? Have you seen these things? (I couldn't even bring myself to link the spider to this post so you can see it because I can't stand to see them on the screen - FYI, typing the 's' word freaks me out!)
