Little Things I've Loved This Week #4

After yet another busy week (I'm not sure I'll ever start one of these without saying this), it's only now that I've really had time to sit down and think about the past seven days and what I've got up to. I also missed this last week, sorry!

1. Roast dinner with the girls
My housemate and I cooked a roast dinner for the others and a couple of friends tonight. I maintain that a roast dinner is the perfect way to finish off a weekend before heading off for the week. It's so lovely to catch up over some homely food. Plus doing the cooking means I get all of the fun of 'sampling' the cheese sauce and none of the washing up!

2. Cute kids
I'm now on GP placement which is so much fun, especially because I get to see a lot of people who aren't really sick - a nice change from hospital medicine. There have also been some real cuties coming into the surgery, including a lovely little kid who blew me a kiss as they left the consultation room. It made my morning!

3. The chatty bus driver
Due to a motorway closure the other day, my twenty-five minute bus journey became an hour and twenty-five minutes of crawling along at an average 3mph. And for a good half of that, it was just me and the driver on the bus. I'd have completely understood if she'd been grumpy, but she was so pleasant and friendly it made the journey much more bearable and not awkward. Also, I got to properly take notice o all the lovely countryside that we drive through... silver linings to every cloud and all that!

4. Medic Wine Tasting Night
It's always nice to do something different and medic nights are always a good laugh. We had a fabulous venue, a selection of wines and some experts to talk about them, followed by hours of live music and dancing. The perfect opportunity to catch up with people I don't see during the week - although it took me a while to recognise people as it was a masquerade themed night!

5. Blogilates workouts
I've not been running recently (which explains the lack of running posts) because it's dark by the time I get home and I don't really know the area I'm living in. Running on my own, in a strange place, in the pitch black, with no one knowing where I am doesn't feel the most sensible of things. Instead, I've been trying out some pilates videos on Youtube and have really enjoyed them! Normally I give up as soon as I get a little bit tired, but Cassie's cheery encouragement keeps me going and I definitely feel the workouts the next day. Fitting 20-30 minutes into my evening is easy enough and I can do it whenever works for me. 

What have you been up to this week?


  1. Sounds like you had a lovely week. Glad to hear the bus driver was chatty. I love when strangers are lovely and friendly like that, it always puts me in a good mood for the day :) x

  2. I hate running in the dark and can't wait for the clocks to change so I can actually get out in the evenings! I've heard good things about the blogilates videos though so maybe I should try them out! x

  3. This sounds like a pretty awesome week! Who doesn't love a friendly bus driver, right? :) And Blogilates workouts are real stuff!

  4. I love blogilates - Cassie is so hilariously cheery but her motivation totally works!
