I have had a steadily worsening cold for the past week which today feels like it may never improve so my week has basically been lots of TV and working from bed (which sounds seedy but it’s not) followed by a manic weekend. I was in London for a meeting on saturday and then out in the evening with friends until far too late only to be up early on sunday to take the kids swimming. We actually had a great time but a chesty cough and a minor hangover does not mix well with a lot of noisy kids. I pretty much look/feel like death today. I did intend to go back to the gym this morning for the first time since we got back from holiday but my headache tells me it’s not time yet.
Those of you who follow me on instagram may have caught my self indulgent crisis of faith post on Saturday re: YouTube and whether it’s going to be for me for much longer. I’m still a little on the fence but I realised a lot of what gets me down is numbers and they aren’t why I ever loved it to begin with. I tried to get out of the box I’d put myself in and lost my way somehow. That box was what made me different and I need to find a way to evolve while staying focused on why I started. 7 years is a really long time to be doing something without questioning whether it’s still what you want to do but I would like to find a way to keep doing it.
When I have managed to get out of the house I’ve so enjoyed the warmer weather!! I can’t wait for summer now. Much as I am wallowing in my illness I know I feel better for getting outside in the fresh air and everyone sleeps better when we’ve been out in the evening before bed, myself included. I would say I could be converted to a ‘outdoorsy’ person yet but right now it’s raining and the living room looks pretty cosy.
Otherwise this weeks obsession has been watching videos on YouTube of Kristen Bell & Dax Shepherd.. and that’s just as ridiculous as it sounds. Interviews, funny clips, I have loved them since I saw their Africa video – if you haven’t seen it already, watch it – I’m not sure what kicked it off this week but it fit in nicely with my lying in bed all day.
My first colourpop order arrived this morning so I promise I’ll have something swatchier for you tomorrow but for now I’m going to steal my blanket back from the dog and and try for 40 winks wearing a sheet mask before I have to face all the mums at a kids party later looking like I haven’t slept in a week. FUN!
