4 November 2018


Here we are again folks, only this week it is... November! Did you do anything for Halloween? I bought us a couple of little pumpkins, as they are always fun to do, and we put them outside the cottage but had no visitors, so I was forced to eat the Cadburys treats instead (I did it for the team... medals in the post!). We also watched 'Apostle' on Netflix; there is no way that I can describe this film, but it is creepy, scary, strange and all the emotions of watching a weird cult movie, and definitely worth a watch. We then ended up staying awake until gone midnight (unheard of) to watch some of the '100 ghosts caught on camera' program on Channel 5. I think about 90% were faked but there were a few that you certainly cannot explain that's for sure.

Are you guys off to see any fireworks this week? I haven't been to see fireworks for so many years... about eight I think. I enjoy seeing displays but don't enjoy the big old crowds of people quite so much!

Lets dive on into the list for this week!

:: This week I have finally had consistent days where I have felt better (can I get a 'hooray'!). I cannot wait to get back to the gym; I am not happy as it has been so bloomin' long and I feel squidgy round the edges and miss pushing weights about! That said, rest is good and I have had my fair share of it, so back to it now for a hard push prior to the Christmas celebrations (by 'celebrations' I clearly mean the chocolates, I'm less of a party animal these days and more of a 'I can't come out, I'm staying home to watch Netflix in my jammies!').

:: Speaking of Christmas, it is very important that I tell you this news: the Christmas radio stations are officially up and running people! Yesterday I was dancing about the kitchen to several festive tunes and I am very excited about it!

:: Television wise, I have watched two amazing things this week! The first one was recommended to me by my mum and it is called 'Black Heart' (ITV1), well actually she called it 'something heat', then said 'deep heat' (!), but we got to the right title in the end! It is a crime drama and is gripping, although maybe not for those easily scared! The second program was recommended by my bestie, Helena, and is one you would have heard of if you have Netflix, 'Making a Murderer' (bit of a crime theme huh?!). I have always seen it on Netflix, but never started it; that has changed now as I am already on the second series (I have done a lot of art work this week so have had it playing constantly in the background). It is certainly not an easy watch, real-life stuff like that never is, but it is interesting and, once you have watched a couple of episodes, you are hooked. Have you watched it?

:: Having had a spurt of creative energy this week, I have been super busy and started creating a collection for the 'paper shop' side of Leaf Lane Studio. My first collection is going to be out next year as I want to release it all together (I will have to keep everything a bit of a secret... suspense and all that, which will be hard for me as I just want to tell you guys things as and when) and I am really looking forward to building up more and more products in that part of the business. I have also started working on some free printables that I plan to send out to those guys that are on my news letter, so make sure you are on there to receive the goodies as they come out!

:: I officially have myself an accountant for the business now (signed some paperwork this week!). I feel like a grown up now and am also very grateful to have her on side! I didn't realise quite how anxious the prospect of sorting all that stuff out was making me feel until I signed things and thought 'phew, I have help!'. This whole having your own business thing is a little daunting at times and suddenly feels very real when you get things like accountants and book wedding fairs! 

:: We had a beautiful sunset walk this week (as you can see by the very orange photos!). The light was catching the tree tops and looked stunning, I just cannot get enough of sun rises or sunsets, they make me so happy!

:: The food I'm most grateful for this week is... well, actually it's a drink (!), Alpro Chocolate Milk! It's so yummy!

That is everything I have for this week my lovelies, sorry it's super short. Next weeks gratitude list may be a day late as we are heading to a friends birthday party and won't get home until Sunday (Gizmo has her grandparents babysitting!). Have a great week!
