I woke up this morning to a definite chill in the air, the kind you can feel while still wrapped up in blankets in bed, and makes you hope you never need to leave the slight warmth they are providing. I hate that chill, for one thing it makes mornings ever so slightly worse than usual, but it is also a signal that the weather is changing for winter :-(
I don't hate winter in general, I like the idea of roaring fires, and cute jumpers and hot chocolate, but the fact that the weather is cold enough that these things are essential, makes me sad. I'm just a warm weather person, loving beaches, and sunny festivals and wearing skirts and vest tops and sandals. I like being HOT.
But, there is no escaping it. So, preparing to layer up, turn the heating on in the next couple of months and dealing with the British winter, again. I just thank God that this year, we're in a house with a working timer on the central heating- last year it was manual and the on button was down stairs :-(
Settling in to our new town, finally working out some ways to try and live cheaply, Hubby and I went on a pudding date this evening, to Cafe Rouge.
The idea is that we eat at home then head to a restaurant to have pudding, thereby enjoying the excitement of going out in the evening with out forking out a ton of money for the pleasure- we do worry about becoming hermits sometimes.
However, Hubby enjoyed a large glass of wine with his pudding, so the bill came to roughly the same as a meal out in a cheaper restaurant, heyho :-)
Perhaps we're finally get used to being poor once we've started bringing home some money? You never do know...
I'm up late, not quite feeling ready for bed yet, though the I know I will be shortly.
I'm feeling rough, nothing major, but a sore throat all day and a constantly runny nose.
And I've had one of those days where I have really only eaten one thing, Peanut butter and bread, with the odd chocolate too.
I always find those days odd, like, there is really nothing else I want to eat, so, why not just eat what I want. I do worry about them though, really haven't had my 5-a-day, or any substantial food. But, I'm full, and I hear peanut butter is actually good for you.
Never mind, hey, tomorrow I'll be a model balanced diet citizen.
So, the job hunt continues after an unsuccessful interview for a TA job yesterday. I handed in my CV to Newlook today, which I'm hopeful for, be nice to have a low pressure job, plus I'd get discount.
So, in the mean time, I persevere with craft, as it is one thing that certainly makes me happy and not feel like I'm waisting my time.
And here is some inspiration, I think it is full of great ideas! Glad I found it on Pinterest. I find pinterest so funny, having an obsessive personality, and loads of time on my hands, I have had to set my self a limit of time that I'm aloud on it for: Max two sessions a day, 30 min a piece. Self control, its nice to meet you.
I go through peeks and troughs of creativity, and I'm always on the look out for something like this, to give me a push and some inspiration to get back in to a creative mindset. So, i guess I must get on with doing some of the things on this list.
