I have always been someone who needs to recharge her batteries every few days/week. Whilst I have made lots of proactive New Year's resolutions one of mine was to also take time for myself- not to feel guilty about sleeping in at the weekend sometimes, not feeling like I should say yes to everything and always be out the house- having some me time!
I am always guilt ridden when I do this but I am trying this morning. I woke naturally at 10am (bliss!) and am now sitting in bed reading 'The Week' (we'll I was before I began writing on here!) I have Bb at my side snuggled right in for warmth, I made porridge, fresh coffee and am making sure I have a glass of water with breakfast (I am trying to drink 8 glasses a day....trying but not quite reaching that goal yet!)
It was a busy week at work but my new A4 diary system, rather than my usual notebook, is giving me a sense of achievement- I have been writing lists each day and highlighting the items once they are complete- w/c 7th Jan is now a pretty fluorescent week!
I also had a nice e-mail from colleagues abroad regards a calendar I have worked with the creative agency- they were really pleased which was a great way to end the week!
I then went and met my friend Pete at the Dome to catch up with him and hear all his news. Pete runs Foodies so I loved hearing about his latest ventures. We had a good catch up on life in general he was also offering me some advise on a wee project I am thinking about- it will take a while to get things in place and is more a future enterprise but as Pete thinks everyone should be an entrepreneur he was more than happy to listen and discuss.
Later on I met Hills and her flatmate Louise. We went to see Gangster Squad which was much more violent than I thought but with Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling it was worth a watch.
At the cinema last night the new Weight Watchers discovery was that 1 scoop of Ben and Jerry's Fro Yo was only 3 points(about 100kcals)
Well as much as I am enjoying laying in I better think about doing some housework- I have promised myself I won't leave the house till it is all done today- no distractions- however tempting! With only 4 more hrs of daylight I want to make sure I get out at some point!
