Things I’ve Been Loving Lately #1
Lately my motivation to write a blog post has been almost non-existent. There have been a few times where I’ve wanted to blog sure, but then I’ve not had any ideas of stuff to actually blog about. I’ve seen a few people do blog posts on this lately and it’s nice to know I’m not alone in my lack of motivation/lack of ideas. I’ve been in limbo in a way because I’ve either had the motivation but no ideas or had ideas but just couldn’t be bothered to sit down and blog. There’s also been the lack of time to blog. I’ve been so busy recently that in the evenings I’ve just been cooking dinner, watching an hour of tv and then going to bed because I’m so tired. I blame the bank holiday weekend, getting out of my regular routine always mucks my sleep pattern up.
Finally though here we are, I’m blogging again. I really hope this dry spell was just a short-lived thing. I love blogging and did really miss it whilst I had a little break of sorts. It’s odd how you can miss something whilst putting no effort in at the same time but I’m sure other bloggers will totally get where I’m coming from.
So if you’re at all interested in what I’ve been doing whilst I’ve not been writing blog posts, these are the things I’ve been loving lately.
Gilmore Girls | I’ve absolutely fallen in love with this programme. I watched the odd episode when it was originally on TV years ago but never properly. I love how wholesome and cosy it is and how they’re always eating. Why does food in tv shows always look so good? I also love that they almost always have time for a proper breakfast, apart from when they’re eating poptarts as they’re walking out the door of course. Can you tell I’m hungry right now? Because I am. This is not the tv show to watch if you’re without snacks but it’s excellent and has become one of my firm favourites.
Driving | I passed my driving test last week and I have been loving the freedom of being able to drive when I want and where I want. Particularly to the shops, I bought this pink lemonade candle from Home Bargains last weekend and it smells u-n-r-e-a-l. It was £2.99 too which is an absolute bargain. It’s so nice to be able to drive myself there, wander around at my leisure and come home when I want. I’m also loving be able to put stuff in my boot instead of carrying it home. It’s the little things but it’s such a novelty to me because for 29 years of my life I haven’t drove and now here I am, driving with my own car. It’s made life so much easier and I am absolutely loving it.
Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery | I’ve seen mixed reviews of this game but personally I’ve really been enjoying it. I like that you don’t have to play it every day if you don’t want to. Yeah you need to wait for your energy to refresh and sometimes you have to repeat quests because you’ve run out of time or forgot to go back. Those things don’t really bother me though and it’s perfect for playing on your morning commute or just before bed.
Emmerdale | Ok so this one I admit is slightly odd. I haven’t watched Emmerdale since I was a kid. My parents watched it and so I would watch it with them, I did quite enjoy it at the time but it wasn’t something I continued when I moved out. Lately though I’ve really gotten into it again and I have to say, I am absolutely loving it! My sister mentioned that storylines have been really good lately so I watched one episode a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been hooked ever since.
Starbars | I’ve always loved a Starbar but lately I’ve seriously been obsessed with them. They are hands down my favourite chocolate bar and I’m not ashamed to say that in the last month I’ve had at least 5.
I actually discovered that two people I work with have never had a Starbar in their life. I was gobsmacked. Starbars are the best chocolate bar out there in my opinion. Don’t @ me.
I hope you enjoyed my ramblings about things I’ve been loving lately. I’m planning on making this a series. Not necessarily once a month or anything, just whenever I have a bunch of things to talk about that I’ve been loving but I think it will be a nice addition to my blog content.
Hope you’ve all had a great week, thanks for reading!
