It’s late, I’m tired but I’m thanking Past-Me for writing this post up in advance.
Thanks Past-Me. You’re the best.
Relaxing Walks To My Favourite Spot.
This is where I like to go when I feel the need for some peace and quiet. I am forever thankful to have such a place only a twenty minute walk from my doorstep. No matter the season, or the weather, it’s always worth a walk. I have high hopes of enjoying many a relaxing walk in this spot with Dog-Face in tow.
With Plenty Of Wildlife To Enjoy.
As an added bonus you can always guarantee there will be some wildlife roaming around. Whether I have my camera on hand to photograph them, however, that’s hit or miss. I’m still trying to work out the logistics of dog walks and photos walks. At the moment, it’s usually one without the other, unless I have Kris along on dog-watching duty.
Dog Versus Recycling.
Curious about Dog-Face’s favourite day of the month? Paper recycling day.
I already know Dog-Face enjoys a cardboard box or two, because you can be sure that if you are opening a package there’s a dog sat on the sofa giving you her best attempt at a wave for a chance to tear that box to shreds.
But, even I wasn’t aware of how deep her love of cardboard boxes went until I dragged all the paper recycling into the living room to sort out, or of how much mess one pup could make in just ten minutes of shredding boxes.
Apparently nothing is quite as exciting as pouncing on boxes, sliding about the floor on them and then ceremoniously killing them all with no mercy.
Palming Off The Cooking To Someone Else.
Cooking might be up there as one of my favourite things to do, but sometimes I just cannot be bothered, so palming it off to the husband it is. It’s even better when I can palm off the washing up as well.
What can I say, I just really like the contrast between the bright white flowers and the lush green leaves. That’s all. This wonderful tidbit is better summarised in a photo I think.
I am pretty sure the internet is trying to convince me that buddy reading books is something that everyone does. The same way it tries to convince me that everyone else is on holiday when I’m not and everyone else can grow house plants when I struggle to water a €1.50 pot of basil from the supermarket for more than a week.
Either way, I decided to give buddy reading books a go with the MIL and we are having a great time – at least I assume she is, I’m actually just speaking for myself right now.
It’s been nice to chit chat about the books we’ve been reading and have that little something between us that we can bond over and I’m quite looking forward to the next book or series we decide to tackle.
An Epic Vegan Milkshake.
Seriously, look at that beast. Look. At. It. It has a doughnut on it. And those sherbet space things that I can’t remember the name of right now. It was so good.
And people say vegans have no fun.
Getting A Good Nights Sleep.
I’m a terrible sleeper. I see far too many 4AMs without catching a wink of shut eye, when I do sleep it is more often than not riddled with nightmares and my idea of a “quick nap” is falling into a coma on the sofa for about four hours.
So those times when I truly get a good nights sleep are worth every minute of that blissful snoozing. If only I could harness the powers of the Zs to make every night a good nights sleep, that might even transform me into a morning person.
New Snacks And New PJs.
I treated myself to some new PJs and an overly priced vegan snack. It was a jolly good evening all the same.
On a separate note: I could see no reason why this bag was also resealable. There was no possibility that I was going to leave myself a few of these tasty morsels “for tomorrow”. They could have saved me 10% of the price had they left that bit of packaging off.
Don’t forget, leave me a wonderful tidbit from your week in the comments!
