Week 36 In Moments

11.9.17

Despite being on holiday the week before, the last seven days have felt like an uphill struggle battling with tiredness.  There is no reason for me to feel so knackered, so what's with the exhaustion?!

Tiredness aside, the week did actually go quite quickly.  We're quickly approaching my trip to New York (17 days!) so we had one last Skype chat to make final plans and get stuff booked....any recommendations for sights and experiences, please leave down below!

I think it's safe to say that autumn has descended in the UK. The sky is looking that little bit drearier and I've noticed the light fading quicker and quicker each day.  While I wouldn't object to an unexpected final fortnight of sun to say goodbye to summer, I am more than happy to be burning the pumpkin candles I've been stockpiling of late.

Speaking of which, last Saturday definitely felt like the beginning of those brisk autumn days where the sun shines but there's still a chill in the air.  I got dressed on autopilot to spend the day with Ella and Dylan...heading out of the house in a t-shirt before realising (too late) that the temperature was a little lower than I've been used to.  Thanks to a Dylan-induced accident (the less said about that the better!) I ended up having to get changed so nicked a jumper out of my sister's wardrobe.  A blessing in disguise perhaps?!

On Saturday night I was out to celebrate my bestie's birthday....hard to believe that this time last year we were celebrating in the caves on Menorca!  A more low-key affair this year (if you don't count the upcoming NY trip!) consisting of dinner and going to the cinema.  We ate in a bbq restaurant (I've tried a few and this was the best) and had our own "secret" room tucked away which was a nice way to spend time together away from the hustle and bustle of the main restaurant.

Throughout the week I've taken advantage of being able to download audiobooks for free through my local library.  I've never dabbled with audiobooks before but have been enjoying being able to switch on whenever I've had a few spare minutes throughout the day as an alternative to YouTube.  Admittedly it's taken a while to get used to tuning my brain in and making a conscious effort to actively listen, but I think I'll 'read' more books like this in the future.
