Dear Blog Buddy is a weekly opportunity for me to reflect on what has happened in the past seven days and talk to my favourite blogger. For those of you who like the idea of writing a journal, I find it very mindful. I publish this post every week.
Happy New Season!
Spring as truly sprung over here in good old Blighty (that’s England to you lot across the pond), and I’m loving every minute of it! This week has been full of sunshine, blossom and butterflies. My mood has noticeably improved as a result.
One thing I am loving about my job this week is the fact that I get to drive around the glorious south coast of England. On weeks like this there is no better work I can think of doing.
As someone who raves about how much she adores the autumn, it’s difficult to admit how much I have been enjoying the warmer weather. Although much like the autumn, I love the vibrant colours I am beginning to see as I walk around my local town. It’s like a rainbow has erupted everywhere you turn. I do hope one day you will be able to come over and enjoy it for yourself.
I’ve been pushing myself to do new things!
This weekend has also been full of things to appreciate. Starting with Saturday, when I went to a conference on my own. This might sound a bit silly but this is something I was actually quite nervous about doing. I travel to London for my job and it doesn’t seem to bother me as much because I have to do it. Somehow going up for fun seems different. Especially when I’m going to something on my own. So to go to this conference was a big deal for me. I’m proud of myself for doing it, I think it’s important to push yourself out of your comfort zone from time to time.
And a day of family time
On Sunday, it was Mother’s Day here in the UK ( I know you guys have it on a different day over there – weirdos!). So I invited my family over for the obligatory roast dinner. The intention was that I would cook it, but as usual I found myself being shooed out of the kitchen by Mike! He does enjoy his cooking. Plus I was recovering from the trauma of the clocks changing – who does that on Mothers day?!
I know I am lucky to have such a close knit family, and I try to remember this as much as possible. Even if they do drive me bonkers from time to time! The day consisted of eating until it hurt, laughing and joking with my family, and eating some more! I think Mum enjoyed herself, she certainly left us smiling.
I hope the snow has started to shift over there and spring is on it’s way to you – I can’t wait to hear all about it.
