The last two weeks have been a strange mix of sun, rain and emotions!
Weather wise, Cornwall is all over the place; we’ve had rain followed by sunny bbq evenings, followed by random sea mist, followed by the #hottestdayoftheyear, followed by thunderstorms. Standard.
Emotions wise, this last week has been pretty all over the place too to be honest, thanks to the wonderful fact of life that is PMS. I mean, I nearly had a break down at the weekend because it was sunny outside but I had to do chores – yep, like a toddler.
So this week I’m including some non-faves in this post, because life isn’t always dreamy, and because I like to rant on the internet sometimes.
1. Wedding dress shopping!
Let me first say NOT FOR MYSELF, before you get any ideas. I am a bridesmaid for N’s brother’s lovely fiance and we spent a whole Saturday looking at beautiful dresses for the big day next year. We visited Amanda K and County Cream in Truro and it was the best fun ever!
And yes, she found the one and she said yes to the dress, and all that good stuff.
2. These dream jobs for animal lovers
It is now my dream to become a Doggy Food Truck Owner. That is all.
3. Sea swimming in the sun
This really salvaged my foul mood this week – first N and I went for a dip at Godrevy beach at the weekend, and then Sam from Strawberry Squeeze and I went swimming at Swanpool on Tuesday (aka the hottest day of the year) – blog post to follow.
1. Ruining all my fave clothes
Apparently I am unable to adult, because in the past two weeks I have managed to shrink my favourite trousers in the wash, rip the crotch of the replacement pair I bought, and stain my entire collection of striped tops (I like stripes, ‘kay!).
Do you know how hard it is to get stains out of a striped top without bleaching the black stripes?
2. Painting the house
It has now come to point in our home ownership where we must paint the whole outside of the house. Apparently this is usually necessary every 2 years, and I just wasn’t expecting it to come around so quickly.
It honestly makes me wish I lived in a flat again!
3. Ridiculously expensive software
Email marketing software is much more expensive than I expected. Once your list starts growing it becomes an unavoidable cost… but signing up to pay £70 a month for some software made me weep a little.
