Sunday Roundup

This week I have been...

Reading: Living Dolls (finally plucked up the courage to read it on the train as the cover is fairly embarrassing). Today I picked up Tina Fey's "Bossypants" in the British Heart Foundation shop so I am looking forward to reading that too. I really struggle to leave a charity shop without buying a book. Where's your favourite charity shop?

Buying: comfortable clothes. Uni Qlo is so underrated - if you have one near you, I URGE you to go and get yourself some warm, comfy leggings. They're like a constant hug to my legs :) As one of my legs is bigger than the other, as a result of DVT, wearing trousers is pretty much a no-go for me any more which is annoying because I have the most wonderful pair of brand new Gap jeans sleeping in my wardrobe which I bought a few weeks before the leg decided to balloon. It's just a silly, little thing but that's why my new clothes have made me happy this weekend!

Eating: okra for the first time. My Mum was putting them in a stew so I had a little try of them and they're delicious! Like funny little baby courgette peppers. Also, today, I was meeting a BFF for lunch and as I met her at the station, I said "I think we probably both have the same place in mind" and off we wandered, without uttering a word about where we were going and ended up in Wagamama. It's part of the unspoken code.

Walking: on Wimbledon Common (as pictured above). Perfect afternoon. I love wearing trainers - I wish they matched with everything!

Listening to: Regina Spektor on my walks to uni.

Playing: tennis! Without running... pretty strange concept I know but it is working so far! I loved the fresh air and the feeling of picking up an old skill.

Have you tried anything new recently or starting doing something you used to love again?
