Little Things I've Loved This Week #40

The weeks always go much quicker when I'm not working all seven days. There have been lots of good things about this week so I've been trying to savour these happy moments before they rush by! I'm finally starting to feel that I'm finding my feet again in my new job, plus I've been making the most of the time I'm not at work - all leading to feeling much more content with life :) Here are the little things I've loved this week:

1. A comfy day-off outfit. I'm not one for spending all day in my pyjamas (in fact it's pretty rare that I ever leave my bedroom in PJs!), but a soft grey sweater and a pair of leggings are the perfect things for cosying up on a rainy Monday.

2. Unexpectedly having a three day week. My rota's in a bit of a mess at the moment thanks to transitioning to a new contract, so I hadn't realised that I got both Monday and Friday off this week! I turned up to work on Tuesday and had to check my rota about four times before I genuinely believed I only had to be there until Thursday. 

3. Getting my blogging inspo back. Since writing this post I've gotten back into the swing of just writing and not getting quite so caught up in thinking about how to word my posts. 

4. Poached eggs for breakfast on a work day! I've always gotten up way earlier than strictly necessary in the mornings, yet never think to use that time to do something more than just porridge or cereal for breakfast. It's nice to mix things up now and again :)

5. Audiobooks. I'm not normally swayed by promotional emails and offers, but somehow Audible always get me. I cancelled my subscription a few months ago because I didn't need to be downloading an audiobook every month, but they recently sent an offer to have three months at a great discount. This month I've downloaded the Little Book of Hygge - it's the ideal audiobook for going to sleep to! (Plus it's great as audiobook as I don't have to worry about how on earth any of the words should be pronounced!)

6. Realising that the current Facebook message thread with my best friend has over 25,000 messages in it (some of which are pretty much essays they're so long). And that's not including the first few years where Facebook used to make you start a new message thread once the current one got "too full", or some of the threads we deleted due to the fact they're just too embarrassing to ever look back at. Or the many, many text messages, whatsapps and snapchats we've sent over the years. That's a lot of chatting!

7. Lunch, lattes and four kinds of cake, plus a good catch up with two great friends. We finally found a weekend we were all free, and it was so nice to spend the afternoon together!

What have been the best bits of your week?



  1. I'm trying to get into the whole waking up really early and having a productive morning and it's quite nice!! I need to try poaching some eggs then too!

  2. How lovely with so many days of! Then a day only in your PJ´s is definitely obvious in my ears! :D

  3. I really need to occasionally treat myself to a good pre-work breakfast. I generally prefer to get up early and study/blog then eat at my desk, but I do miss eating poached eggs!

  4. Tell me more about this "four kinds of cake" business. That sounds pretty epic XD
