I have been in a particularly good mood this weekend, possibly because the sun has been shining and I have been really productive!
Friday evening was nice and chilled, I bought some cheeses, pork pie and crackers to have a ‘bits & bobs’ dinner and settled down to watch Pretty Woman for the first time. I absolutely loved it. Definitely one to add to my list of favourites!
Saturday morning was super productive! Listening to the radio instead of watching TV helped me to sit down and focus on studying without any distraction. I got loads of reading done and a bit of adulting in between (urgh, bills!). I recently moved my living room around because I didn’t like the fact that I was facing the wall with my back to the room when I was studying. I moved my sofas to create a cosy, separate space for chilling and then changed the dining table setting so that it felt more like a study space. Everything is now closer to hand if I need it and I actually want to sit there and be productive thanks to the addition of a few pretty pieces.
In the afternoon I met the bestie for a light lunch and some drinks at The Golden Cross. It’s one of the oldest pubs in Coventry and has just been done up. I had a BLT, which was very nice (except for the rocket, I hate rocket!) and it was very reasonably priced at just a fiver. I loved the new VW wallpaper in the toilets and may have taken a selfie (or ten). We ventured on to the Campbell, now called the Phoenix and shared a bottle of prosecco. Feeling a bit tipsy, we decided to have a chilled out evening and reminisced of the days when we used to go out every single week, how did we manage to afford it?!
After staying with the bestie for the night, I walked home on Sunday. There was glorious sunshine and the Spring flowers and blossom trees were in full bloom. It took me about an hour and meant that I could have a good walk in my new trainers that I bought for walking to and from work. (You may have read in a previous blog post that I was attempting to up my walking game this year, a little update: I now average about 8 to 10,000 steps per day, woo!).
On Sunday afternoon I went to see the BFF. We had a BBQ then went out to take a few photos for work. I was loving the outdoor sunshine so much that we decided to go and find a couple of Geocaches that were close to us. It’s so surprising how close to nature you often are. We only crossed the street to find that a gate opened out into big fields with lovely views. The sun was setting slightly, which made for some nice photos. We found both Geocaches this time, one behind some stinging nettles, ouch!
I have loved this weekend and spending time with those that are close to me. It goes to show that you can have a productive weekend while still being social at the same time!
