This weekend I was a complete relaxation station. I hadn’t realised how stressful my weekends had been since October-ish; charging up to London after work in the car, going on road trips and doing all the Christmas socialising, until I did hardly anything this weekend. And it was a great feeling to get some me time back.
In true me fashion, it was mostly consumed with cooking food, and then eating it. Yesterday I made red cabbage and apple soup for my lunches this week (it’s one of my favourite things ever) and rainbow trout with a pesto crumb (yummy!!).
I went boxing in the morning on Sunday, and then came home and decided to have a day dedicated to me. I watched the Kings Speech and the Blind Side, and then Emma came round and we watched 27 Dresses.
All of which left me a little teary, I think I must be hormonal.
The Kings Speech was just lovely; nothing like how I expected it to be but thoroughly interesting and well worth the watch.
27 Dresses is rubbish, but one of my favourites, and Benny and the jets has been stuck in my head ever since. I love the silly quotes, “yesterday you were my sister, today you are just some bitch who broke my heart and cut up my mother’s wedding dress!!” and obviously having James Marsden to look at for well over an hour raised the Sunday night blues.
But the Blind Side was FANTASTIC. I wept my heart out watching it, and then was pretty inconsolable when realising it was a true story. Its amazing to think there are people like that in the world, that would take someone in without knowing them, their background and what they are capable of. I think the world needs to be a bit more trusting of people and it was such a gorgeous story.
Bolstered by my faith in humanity, I changed my bedlinen and cleaned the house. After all, some things still need to be done!
Hope you all had great weekends.
