Cheat Day

I am grateful for cheat days! lol! Tonight we had a surprise birthday celebration dinner for Joycey at Turtle Bay so that means yummy cocktails! Since it’s a cheat day, I also had some chocolate popcorn on the way there because I was starving. OMG chocolate popcorn is so yums I don’t know when I’ll ever get to have it again!

Loud Dinner

I love Turtle Bay but loud music really isn’t the best thing for dinner conversation. I have trouble following group conversations even normally, so in places where we must shout to be heard, I’m really tested!

Addiction

I don’t know if I should scold Chong or thank him for getting me addicted to The King’s Avatar. It’s such an amazing story I can’t get enough of it. Luckily the web novel has 1800 chapters and it’s still ongoing! But I read it on my phone while doing my walk today, which is very naughty, but I really needed to find out how it went and I wasn’t going to have any time the rest of the day to read it!

Honoured

My favourite bullet journaller @christina77star mentioned me today!

Gratitude

I’m grateful for fruits! Had a sweet and juicy mango I had to wait a week to ripen adequately but it satisfied my need for sugary desserts!

Temptation

Going to monthly WI meetings is going to test my willpower because they always serve cakes at the end of the meetings! I managed to resist the Victoria Sponge tonight and am very proud but I so miss the days when I allowed myself to eat whatever I wanted!

Health

But my efforts have paid off! My health score at Adam’s has improved again!

August Health Score – 62%
September Health Score – 73%
October Health Score – 77%

Sleep

What is going on? Managed to sleep 8.5 hours without much trouble but Fitbit only recorded 4 minutes of deep sleep! Mind, you are not co-operating!

Upset

This box has been empty for a whole hour as I stared at it and wanted to fill it in but didn’t want to write anything that came to mind because I had a sudden upset and my mind is screaming and my heart is heavy.

Gratitude

I’m honestly quite surprised that this month’s bujo is proving more popular, so my Instagram follower count has been increasing very quickly. 4K followers! I thought people wouldn’t like the slight change in style, but I’ve always been bad at predicting what people like anyway! Regardless, Im so very grateful for this blessing and am very thankful to everyone who likes my amateurish art!

The Undecided Couple

I’m calling us The Undecided Couple from now on. We had to toss a coin to decide dinner tonight. And 4 years ago we had to toss a coin to decide whether to have a wedding ceremony!

Evil Forces

Evil forces are stopping me form watching Harry Potter! Our new 4K TV arrived today. After waiting 18 days, then 4 days (ref. Oct 5) to watch the movie, I could have, today, except when I went to iTunes Store, the complete collection isn’t there anymore! It was still there an hour before!

Now, only single movies are available at £10 instead of £40 for 8! I sent Apple an email but in the meantime, more waiting!

Win

Did a 65-minute walk today despite being very cold and tired!

Good Forces

It wasn’t evil forces after all! It was a blessing in disguise! The Harry Potter complete collection came back to the iTunes Store £10 cheaper than before! I mean it’s a small amount but waiting for a total of 23 days for that saving seems worth it, lol. Now I’ve got all the 8 Harry Potter movies in 4K with extras for £30!

Artistic TV

I love our new Samsung Frame TV! It turns into a piece of art when the TV is off. There’s all kinds of styles of art to choose from and we can keep changing it. Only problem is Piers and I have very different tastes in art so I expect I’ll have to change it more often than I like!

Gratitude

I’m grateful for all the silver linings and blessings in disguise I’ve encountered in my life. As much as I love ranting and as much as I fall into depression, I do deep down believe that things kind of work out eventually and happy things do happen. and when they do, feel very grateful because gratitude enhances happiness.

Migrating Swans

Big noisy swans have been flying past our house quite a lot this month. I wonder where they’re going. I wish they’d stop here!

Love And Gratitude

So quickly, we’ve been married for 5 years, together for almost 8! I can still remember the horror of enduring a long-distance relationship so, today, I’m once again grateful that we never have to go through that again, and that we can be together without fear, forever.

We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary by spending the day at Compton Abbas Airfield watching vintage planes fly around. It seemed a rather fitting way to commemorate our relationship since we had to fly back and forth to see each other a lot in the beginning.

There was an old man wind walking (strapped on the top wing of his plane to enjoy the wind as a pilot flies him around) and that was quite a rare sight.

Also, I had a slice of chocolate cake. Naughty! But it’s my anniversary so diet rules don’t apply lol.

The Long Wait

It’s taken me 18 days to finish listening to Harry Potter book 1. I tend to have to rewind a lot because my mind often drifts away. It’s like I have audial ADHD.

I’d been dying to watch the movie but wanted to finish the book first and now I have! As I sat deciding whether to get the movie on iTunes or Prime, I noticed that iTunes has it on 4K, which reminded me that Piers just bought a 4K TV but it won’t arrive until Tuesday! That’s 4 more whole days I’d have to wait if I want to watch it on 4K! Sigh.

Mad Weather

I love the weather in England! One day I’m wearing 3 layers to bed and the next day Piers is sunburnt!

Dark Quest/Gratitude

I’m grateful for chocolate! I’m still bummed about having to give up milk chocolate but I’m learning to like dark chocolate.

I have a new mission! I’m going to try all the different brands to find the best! It has to be at least 70% cocoa, which I think is tastier, anyway. How fun it will be!
