I’m peering at the laptop through teeny tiny knackered eyes tonight, I had an exam at 9.30 on Tuesday morning, so of course my brain went into overdrive at about 3 a.m. and just kept going until…well, now! Thanks brain, you’re the BEST. Whilst I’m super chuffed that it’s over, my nervy perma-awake brain means that I’m not so much with the words right now, I could probably tell you all about Lasting Powers of Attorney and discounted gift trusts if you’re interested. Anyone? Tumbleweed in three, two, one…
On with the wonderful*
Topping this week’s list of good bits is getting this exam out of the way obvs. I’ll have plenty more to come over the next couple of years so I don’t quite know why this one (Trust Planning if you care) got me so worked up but it did. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of relief that comes with a good solid ‘pens down people’.
Saturday and Sunday. HOW beautiful and un-Autumn was this weekend? I anti-Hygge’d my butt off, jumper and sock free in the garden for a bit. This weekend also marked that most wonderful of times when the pooches are allowed back on the beaches. We spent a couple of hours at one of our favourite spots, basking in the sunshine and watching Betty go batsh*t crazy on the sand. That dog sure does love the beach.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I started reading it in the sunshine on Sunday and managed about 30 pages before I had to make someone take it off me and hide it so I could crack back on with the revision. I can’t give you any spoilers because I’m not very far in but so far it’s fantastic.
Date night with K. Now she’s a working girl, we hardly see K at home these days. On Friday she and I had a cheeky date night complete with Chinese food, the naffness of Burlesque and boy chat (her, not me. It would be beyond weird to boy-chat with my step-child about her father!) Sometimes it’s the little moments with the ones you love that make a week.
Poldarking It Up A Treat. A beautiful friend brought me some good-luck-in-your-exam giftage. She is widely acknowledged to be the queen of presents so when she rocked up at my door with a cute little good luck angel keyring and a POLDARK FLIPPING COLOURING BOOK it was no surprise. Guys, it’s amazing! It’s full of line drawings of scenes from actual Poldark so it is as creepy as it is incredible. You must all buy it right now.
Monday Morning Run. Before knuckling down to a last day of cramming I went for a run on Monday morning. Look how pretty, hashtag no filter, it sort of made up for falling on my bum in the mud and straining all the muscles. Because it was Monday morning there wasn’t a soul about. Just me and my spaniel dogs and the great outdoors. Bliss. And that’s about as good as it gets this week. How’s yours been?
*every week I write something similar and every week I yell it in my head in a ‘LET’S PLAY DARTS!’ style. Just me?
