#100happydays Days 49 – 55

Day 49 – Daniel’s friend was coming to stay with us for a couple of days, so I had a massive house clean and tidy-up and treated myself to a bit of trashy telly afterwards.

Day 50 – Normally after Guides on a Tuesday I fall straight into bed, not this Tuesday! We had went out for a few quiet drinks in some of the new bars in town. This is Cherry Reds on John Bright Street, lovely for a quiet late-night beer.

Day 51 – Everyone was out of the house, I’d tidied up on Monday, so it was lovely to bask in the quiet sun in the flat.

Day 52 – Pyjamas. It’s true that introverts expend a lot of energy in socialising, I couldn’t wait for a night on our own again and relaxing in front of the TV in pyjamas.

Day 53 – So, we went to New York and basically ate everything, with all the burgers and beer and everything, I’d put on about 4kg in just 10 days, so how happy I was to find on Day 53 that I’d actually lost 2kg already!

Day 54 – Went to a friend’s barbecue, pudding was some beautiful cakes from a lovely bakery in Harborne, my moment of joy on Saturday was being told by my friend “you’ll thank me on your wedding day!”. I wasn’t allowed a cake but her words just made me laugh so much!

Day 55 – A big glass of water in the sun after another long run outside!


#100happydays Days 42 – 48

Day 42 – A beautiful sunny day for a run! This is the actual view from our flat, a mix of city and green space, lovely!

Day 43 – This Mexican Lego man gives me a smile every time I do the washing up.

Day 44 – Longest run to date, 5.99km, felt brilliant because I thought the route I’d planned was only 4.5km so this was a really nice surprise!

Day 45 – That Great British institution, the pub quiz. We went with some friends to The Queen’s Arms in St Pauls, and were doing really well at half time, third out of 11 teams! The sports and TV rounds killed it for us though, we ended up 5th. Still, you can’t get much more British than getting worked up about answering questions to win a £20.00 booze voucher in a pub you only go in once a month if that!

Day 46 – Instead of a run we walked down to Harborne for a drink in the New Inn, on the way stopping in Marks and Spencer for Daniel to grab a quick sandwich – normally I would get something as well, but look at all these Percy Pig sweets I managed to not buy! Good start for the wedding diet.

Day 47 – The sun was shining again, and I pulled out one of my most summery t-shirts, this little gem from ¡Ay Guëy! in Mexico. Felt really colourful and ready for the Summer! And driving to Winchester for a Hen Weekend.

Day 48 – My friend’s Hen Weekend in Winchester, complete with spa treatments, champagne, hen games and blow-up sex doll! A lovely weekend with lovely people.
