Life Lately

It's been a busy few weeks to be honest. Since the wedding we've come back from our lovely honeymoon (more on that later, I've drafted some posts about Sri Lanka) and settled back into london life. The boy has been rather busy travelling with work. Whilst I could have used this time to blog, I really need my own laptop.. One bonus now the wedding is over is being able to save for other things instead.

So here's a little update on life lately:

Spring cleaning. 
We were lucky enough to get a lovely amount of John Lewis gift vouchers as wedding presents. Meaning we can upgrade some of our bits (towels etc), and purchase some new bits for the flat. In doing so we decided it was a good time to do a spring clean, and whilst it's very much a work in progress it's feeling good and very productive already. I even found this old vase whilst having a sort out, and with some leftover fairy lights from the wedding made a little light feature!
Putting new photos into frames. 
Of course there's lots of new WEDDING photos to print and display - cue trip to Ikea for frames. We're feeling really happy with how our flat looks at the moment, especially after the aforementioned spring clean. 
Enjoying London's sweet treats.
Since being back in london I've been to Peggy Porschen and got my hands on some MaĆ®tre Choux eclairs. It's nice to get back into London, and I intend to enjoy London as much as I possibly can over the summer. Just hoping for some more sunshine, to be honest.
Wandering London
So far this Spring I've been to Chiswick House for a walk, and a lovely lunch at No 197 Chiswick Fire Station. We've plenty of other 'London Villages' to explore, I do love a good weekend wander around a part of London, and hope to get that series of posts back up and running on the blog.
Getting back into fitness. 
Sri Lanka was quite an active holiday in some respects however I didn't get chance to run (only a short beach run anyway) and then I somehow gained a small injury on our return to London, so I had to take a little bit more time off than I'd anticipated. I'm convinced I walked to far in flip flops! 
I'm happy, however to say I've been to bootcamp this week, and feel good for it, despite it being super hard. It was worth it. I've got my second 10K booked for the end of May, so I was really keen to rest my foot properly and not let it affect my race. I've gone back into it lightly with a few short runs last week, and hopefully *touch wood* that will be the last foot pain I experience during this training. Now to get back up to my distance.
Answering the question how's married life? 
It's lovely, although I have to be honest not a lot has changed. As we already lived together we knew each other's annoying habits etc. That sounds terrible but it's really rather lovely. We had 3 weeks in others company and really was lovely to spend that time together - we needed after the busyness of organising the wedding.
Feeling colourful and thankful.
With spring in the air, flowers blossoming and the lighter evenings. I'm feeling more awake and productive. I'm rather happy that evenings in the park are coming, hopefully. It feels like there are more hours in the day with those lovely light evenings. However I still need a few extra hours please.
We are feeling very thankful as we've been truly lucky over the past couple of months. It's been a whirlwind of excitement but we've loved every minute.

A lack of blogging. Sorry about that!
I've been a little M.I.A. in the blog world, since my latest post anyway. I wrote about our lovely Somerset Wedding Suppliers, here. I meant to write a post for the travel link up. But it just didn't happen, we were away last weekend which was when the link closed. I just ran out of time unfortunately.

It was a really brilliant topic - 'If travel was a menu, what would be your starter (short haul), main (long haul) and/or dessert (a place with a lasting impression)'. I would have to say my choices would have been Copenhagen for Starter, Dubai for Main and Sri Lanka for dessert. I promise I'll try and get back to it. I know I say that every time.

What have you been up to lately? 

Love Sarah x
