My month in photos

Judging by the photos in this entry the last month has consisted of two things:

1) Food/eating
2) House related jobs

Whilst the whole food/eating thing has been mainly really, really yummy (seriously, I've eaten so much good food recently) it's showing on my waistline now. Skirts and trousers that fit me a year ago no longer fit, this is something that I find quite upsetting. I've always been slim, I was seven and a half stone for a long time, it wasn't until after I got married did the weight begin to creep on. I know they say wedded bliss and all that but things have been far from blissful in the last year and a half so I have nothing or no one to blame other than myself.

Things have got to change, I'm trying to make healthier choices from now on and I'm determined to find some sort of exercise that I enjoy. I was going to Pilates a few months ago but doing that once a week won't shift the pounds, all it did was help with my anxiety. My problem is that I don't like doing things alone and gym/fitness partners are really non existent. Matt refuses to exercise completely (damn his fast metabolism) so that doesn't help really as we both have a very sedentary lifestyle and despite currently hating how I look I find it hard to motivate myself to do something about it.

As for the house jobs, well what a faff the last few months have been. We've been strung along and lied to by the people we were buying a house from so now we're buying a lovely shiny new build, sadly we're now encountering people that have no idea what they're talking about. It's understandable though, how many people know the ins and outs of immigration law? Not that many is what I'm discovering.

Anyway, the house we're buying will  be lovely. It's a terraced townhouse, I have bags and bags of ideas for it. I'm looking forward to sharing them with you guys over the coming months.

1. Amazing salt beef sandwich from Coffee a go go in Cardiff. 2. Mineral Ice (from the States but available on Amazon) has been a life saver recently. 3. Our house in progress, as of yesterday the roof still wasn't on. 4. Mega lovely lunch from M&S. 5. I've been hitting up Yo! Sushi a heck of a lot recently, twice in the last week! 6.
