So this week I have been back in my lovely hometown after a fab holiday! It’s been a week of relaxing and spending time with family.
Sunday was a very lazy day for John and I we literally closed the curtains and had one of those awesome lazy Sundays catching up on all the TV we missed whilst away. Caught up on Game of Thrones (OMG can’t wait for the next episode) and Line of Duty (I think I heard the whole nation gasp at the end.
Monday we had a day sunning ourselves in John’s folks garden, a lovely walk for ice-creams around People’s Park although was a little sad to see quite a bit of rubbish in the water as it’s been done up so nicely and is such a lovely park! Litter is one of my pet hates! John’s Mum cooked us a lovely tea (thank you John’s Mum).
The rest of the week has been back to work, had the usual holiday blues but fortunately I love my job at HCUK Training, I am a Staffing Consultant there so get to spend lots of time out meeting businesses and networking which is ideal for me as I am definitely a people person.
I did manage to pop into one of my favourite shops this week, Forw4rd (on Market Street) to pick up some Stance socks (we have a bit of a Stance sock addiction) and had a chat with the lovely Laura (check out Forw4rd here @forw4rd).
The folks also came round this week for a cuppa and a catch up. Had a chat with my Dad and his training plans because he’s running Race for Life with me this year and has never run a day in his life so he’s been giving it a go this week and doing well I might add! Well done Dad! It’s the first year they are letting men enter and I think it’s AWESOME. It’s something I’ve done every year for around the last 4 years. So really excited to be doing it with him this year. Need to get my running shoes back on though as it’s been a while and he’ll be out-running me if I don’t get into shape!
This week I also joined a fantastic group after a kind invite, Totally Locally NEL (@totallylocallynelincs) who are spreading the word on local businesses. After popping a post about the blog on their Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/TotallyLocallyNELincs/) about potential interviews I was amazed by all the fantastic businesses in the town who want to get involved. I am not going to be short of a cuppa or something to do for the next few months so watch this space for all the exciting things I have planned.
I am writing this with a very full tummy after a lovely home-cooked roast from John’s Mum (we do feed ourselves sometimes, honestly) and after a movie morning with John and his son at Parkway Cinema watching Avengers End Game which without giving away spoilers made me blub into my popcorn.
Hope you all have a fantastic week!
