Taking my new trainers out - an update on life

Hi team!

I've been wearing these new all-black Nike trainers constantly for the last week. Life's been on the go, so I was so grateful to Footway for sending me a discount code so I could buy these sneaks to sneak around in


We've had a pretty manic time recently. The update is in the last week, we gave up on waiting for the house we were buying in Bournemouth. The guy showed no interest in moving out so we withdrew our offer. Thankfully another house (which I prefer) came on the market and we got our offer accepted. Hopefully we're still full steam ahead to move by the summer. I can't wait to have time for running, joining a new netball team, going out!

I've been commuting 4 hours a day still, but surviving better. I've discovered podcasts and am binging My Dad Wrote a Porno series 1 which is hilarious. Thankfully I get to stretch my legs - I'm on my feet a lot with my new job as I'm working on inpatient wards, so the trainers are perfect - smart enough for work but comfy for running up and down hallways and dashing in the rain back to my office. They're the Nike Air Max Thea Premium in black and cost £105. I'm actually really impressed with Footway - they stock everything and at really good prices! My main complaint is there is too much choice for lazy browsers like me and are more for shoppers who know what they want. 


My Misfit Ray broke at the beginning of the month, but thanks to their warrenty I was sent a new one really quickly and it's an upgrade with a grey leather strap. Perfect for tracking those steps and how much (little) sleep I'm getting!

This week I've also been at my lovely friend Emma's hen do! 5 weeks till the wedding and I have the huge honour of doing her hair and makeup. We had a trial run a couple of weekends ago and I had a really fun time playing around with my favourite hobby - beauty! It does help that her face is such a flawless canvas to begin with though. We went to New Manor Spa in the New Forest and I enjoyed my first hot stone massage. I really needed it and felt so relaxed after, and I think I fell asleep several times during the massage. Then we went out for dinner and I provided the mandatory willy cake! I won't post it, just in case you're reading this at work!


This week, Sam and I are off together so we've got plans to go for breakfast, go to the New Forest for a dog walk and have a mid-week night out together! I'm really excited for it, plus lots of knitting and resting. I love a stay-cation.
