Things That Made Me Happy This Week #5
1// Yoga I started doing bits of yoga here and there a while ago in an attempt to loosen up my hips and become more flexible. Even though I still find it incredibly hard as my muscles seem to be ridiculously tight, I'm loving the sense of calm it gives me. Plus I'm a sucker for a bit of muscle ache. Better than the calm and the aching though, is the opportunity to work towards a goal - one day I'll be able to do a downward dog with my whole foot touching the ground.
2// Taming the mane This week I finally had my hair cut for the first time since the start of the summer. It really needed it. I go to a walk-in place near work where they wash and cut with absolutely no extra fuss - I do not need my head massaging, thank you very much. Going to the hairdresser to me is like going to the dentist to others, but this place has such a 'bish bash bosh' vibe that I can almost handle it.
3// Station Eleven It seems to have been a week for this novel and I've certainly not been the only person reading it. I can barely put into words how incredible I think it is (I will try because I want to review it), even if it did freak me out a lot and make me worry that a sore throat I thought I was getting was actually the Georgia Flu. Yeh, I thought we were doomed for a moment there.
4// Writing You may have noticed that thing's have been a little more active around here recently and I think I'm almost ready to say that I've got my mojo back. It's been a difficult few months and it feels so good to be writing again and not only over here - I'm slowly starting to exercise my creative brain by writing a couple of other bits and bobs. I'd like to say that I'm so grateful you have all stuck around - thank you so much for always brightening my days.
5// Family time Seeing my family is starting to become a bit of a habit and I have to say it has been lovely. I've been back in Somerset this weekend for a wedding - the reception was in a marquee in our field (!) - and it's been brill to dress up and have a boogie with my nearest and dearest (even if some of the dancing should probably not have happened).
6// Compliments from elderly men At the wedding a lovely, if inebriated, chap I was stood by at the bar told me I had beautiful eyes and a beautiful smile. You've got to grab those moments whenever you can.
