Is it just me or is 2016 flying by? This week has seen the start of the Premier League, three doctor appointments, a surprise, a disappointing episode and many blue skies…
After last week’s Lovely Things went live, I had a proper family day at home. The other half came round and we watched both the Man United and the Liverpool matches through the Amazon Fire Stick and it was glorious. It’s going to be very awkward when the two teams play one another so fingers crossed we don’t break up. Ha! My Mum very kindly whipped up a breakfast butty which was absolutely delicious and the roast we had at tea time was rather scrumptious as well.
I Now Live At The Doctors…
You may know from last week’s post that I’ve had a few health issues recently – mainly to do with my back. On Monday, the pain was that bad that I began to be violently sick so my Mum kindly came home from work to take me to the doctors as I was shaking from being so cold. I’ve had a lot of blood tests taken and the results aren’t brilliant. My health is at risk because of something crazy going on with my body so a diet change is in order…

My family and close friends know that I can’t stand surprises due to my anxiety. It makes me feel very uncomfortable and unorganised, but I’m slowly learning to deal with the fact that a few may pop up in my life. On Tuesday evening, the Mr surprised me at home with a huge bouquet of beautiful flowers, two chocolate fudge cupcakes and a delicious pot of fruit for breakfast the following day. I CRIED. I think I said thank you about a million times. It was completely unexpected and cheered me up a lot. He’s the best.
Despite being poorly and off work this week, I’ve still been waking up early. I’ve found that 7:30am is the best time to catch the beauty of the farmer’s field where my bedroom window looks out onto. I’ve said it before on my blog, but it is by far my favourite view.

On Thursday, I met my friend from work and had a girls day in Liverpool. We had a delicious brunch in East Avenue Bakehouse (more to come on that this week), before a stroll around the Albert Docks where I met two beautiful barn owls. I held Hope and she was absolutely gorgeous. You may know from my blog name, but I do adore the beautiful creatures…
On Thursday, the Mr and I hopped into the car and went to Southport for a lovely little date night. We’re not ones for sitting in fancy restaurants every time we go out so after a stroll around the stunning lake (and capturing about 50 pictures of the sunset), we opted to sit near the beach with a McDonalds. Oh happy days.
The Mr and I bought a king size double bed yesterday so we celebrated with a cheeky Wagamama’s in the Trafford Centre. Yesterday was such an errand based day but I had such a lovely time. It’s the small things in life, isn’t it?
