To Do Tuesday

To Do, Tuesday, Lists, Organisation, To Do Tuesday

As I mentioned last week I am now back to work and I have to admit after just a weekend away in the country I was reluctant to return. Much like every other time I have spent away from work once I had completed a couple of shifts I was back into the swing of real life and ready to get myself sorted. Starting back at the gym is something that I have been thinking about for quite some time and after spending two hours on horse back it was blatent how out of shape I have let myself get.

Over the past week I have been making time to gently ease myself back into an exercise routine and it isn’t going too badly. Onwards . . .

Last Weeks List

- Edit remaining pictures from weekend and post

- Schedule 2 weeks worth of posts templates (content to be filled)

- Take part in a Twitter Chat

With Valentine’s day/weekend out of the way life is back to normal over here and things are kicked back into over drive with regards to organising little parts of my life. Starting off with my blog is always a good and quite frankly the most obviously place to start so this week I will be focusing on making time to schedule rather than posting erratically. Hopefully it will give me a chance to have some time to myself with himself. If this weekend just gone has taught me anything it is scheduling is sometimes necessary as it is completely necessary to put down your phone/tablet/camera and just enjoy life.

To Do Tuesday

To Do, Tuesday, Lists, Organisation, To Do Tuesday

Going back to work after time off is never a nice thing to have to do. It is even weirder when you go back to work and it feels like you have been gone for even longer as so much has changed. I am sure that I am not the only one that has things that really grind on me at work that I would love to change. Isn’t it funny that those little niggly things have a way of sorting themselves out and when you are not even there – like elves have been in! There are a couple of things that I will be carrying over to this week but that is purely because I want to perfect things rather than leaving them half done.

#IMWAYR

Monday, Blogging, It's Monday What Are You Reading?, IMWAYR, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

 Last week I returned from Amsterdam on Monday but was too late to put up my Monday post due to ridiculous delays with British Airways. Surprisingly the flight and customer services was awful but thankfully we are home safely.

I finished this last week and absolutely loved it, my review will be up this week so keep your eyes peeled.

In the mood for more Moriarty I started listening to this and it is no surprise that I am already hooked.

Check out my review HERE.

Beauty

Lime Tree Blossom Shower Scrub, Shower, Scrub, Lime Tree Blossom, Douche, Blog A Book Etc, Beauty, Skin Care, Fay

€2.50 – 150ml
Last time I went to Amsterdam I remember this product and lucky for me the HEMA shop were still selling it. It smells amazing and although it is over the 100ml mark and I am unable to take it back home it is just the right price to use whilst there and not feel bad leaving it behind.

Hair Care, Hair, Serum, Beauty, Hema, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

€4.50 – 30ml

Perfect sized bottle of serum which I can say from experience works on Afro Caribbean hair very well. Leaving my locks feeling well nourished and smelling fresh – also it seems to tame the frizz. Of course I bought it home with me!

Life

Coffee, Barneys, Amsterdam , Caffeine, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

Just one of the many delicious coffees we had whilst in Amsterdam – maybe it is because they use creamer instead of milk. Yummy!

Spongebob, Spongebob's Squarepants, Cartoons, Kids, TV, Amsterdam, Street Art, Art, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

Most nights we would take a stroll around the town and on our first night we came across Spongebob watching us.

Any plans for the week ahead?

Week in Pictures #1

In an attempt to keep track of 2015 I am going to try and post a weekly collection of photos that I have taken over the previous week. There are so many of you out there that are taking numerous photos and putting them up for different challenges. Instead of taking part in a challenge (they tend to never get finished!) I thought it would be a nice way without the commitment of a challenge to share my photos.

Amsterdam, Teddy's, Cafe, Food, Drink, Breakfast, Pancakes, Syrup, Bacon, Lights

This was definitely the place to go when it came to breakfast in Dam.
Those pancakes you can just about see didn’t last too long!

Spongebob, Spongebob's Squarepants, Cartoons, Kids, TV, Amsterdam, Street Art, Art, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

Little bit of spongebob goes a long way! And he made it to Dam!

Coffee, Barneys, Amsterdam , Caffeine, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

One of many coffees had in Dam – cannot tell you how good they were!

Kiss, Kisses, Love, Romance, Relationships, Life, Blog A Book Etc, Fay, Quotes

Very true.

In a proper coffee shop if you know what I mean!

After walking through London and seeing all of the beautifully decorated chairs etc it was nice to see this  painted letter in Dam.

Himself just had to find somewhere to watch the football and luckily for him Barney’s obliged. I was happy as I had coffee and wifi – plus for him West Ham did win!

What have you been photographing this week?

To Do Tuesday

To Do, Tuesday, Lists, Organisation, To Do TuesdayAfter being away for most of last week my to do list both personal and on the blog side of things has grown extensively.

- Wrap and bag Christmas presents

- Put up Christmas lights

- Put together gift basket for mothers

How Did I Get On?

Still working on the Christmas gift baskets for our mothers however it is taking longer than I anticipated due to lack of time to go out and shop for the contents. Bit by bit I am getting there – it will happen. On the wrapping side of things the other day I got into a bit of a wrapping frenzy put my audio book on and got cracking. With only 3 more presents to wrap and a couple more to buy I am pretty much all sorted.

One thing I do regret this year is not planning ahead enough to participate in The Broke & The Bookish Secret Santa – such a shame but next year will be a good one! (Not wishing the time away of course!).

Commenting has not been my strong point this week but I have visited almost 10 new blogs and let me tell you there are some awesome bloggers out there – as if you didn’t already know.
