Enjoying a little 'me' time. Whether this is sneaking off to bed early, lighting a candle and reading Women's Health snuggled up in the duvet while The Man finishes off a game of FIFA or taking a mid week bath after a long day at work.
Feeling on Top of Things
I'll be honest, this rarely happens. Juggling work, life and my blog can get a bit stressful sometimes but when it all comes together and I feel on top of everything, it makes me feel completely, blissfully content.
A Clear Inbox
Clearing my inbox is like a little dose of calm. I hate that red, round number on my iPhone telling me exactly how many emails are yet to be answered, so if I need a bit of calming therapy, I take an hour out of my evening to completely clear my inbox.
A Quiet Night In
The Man was away last weekend and before that, we were on holiday, before that we had a few crazy busy weekends in a row so I'm very happy to have him this weekend, I can't wait to curl up on the settee with him. Even though we just realised that we have tickets to see Future Islands at Manchester Cathedral tonight, we can still definitely squeeze in a quiet Sunday night in!
Seeing Friends and Family
Last weekend was my belated birthday weekend, seeing as I was in Italy for my birthday I wanted to catch up with friends and family. So it was lovely to see some of my favourite people, my family and my baby nieces dressed up for Halloween! I definitely need to make more time to see everyone more regularly, working in online retail at this time of year means we barely see daylight so it's a bit tricky!
Even if they're only little ones, I love to have a goal to aim for. From today I'll be working on losing weight, getting healthier and saving money. It's probably the worst time of year to be doing any of these but if I can get started with them now, then I have a head start for January! I gave myself a bit of a head start last week and am already feeling better about myself so fingers crossed I can keep motivated!
There's also lots of other tiny little things that I love at this time of year, like walking through autumn leaves, finding those perfect winter boots and beginning my Christmas shopping! What are the little things that make you happy?
