It’s the first vlog of the year and this week I’ve been pottering around in more ways than one! Lucy and I went to a Harry Potter pub quiz as team ‘Smack my Snitch up’ and came 4th out of 17 (pretty big) teams so we were really impressed with ourselves….although I’m not sure I was much help, Lucy is a ball of Potter knowledge! I think we’ve foud a new way to spend our Wednesday nights – got to love a good fastest finger first quizzerino!
On Friday night Scott and I decided to head out for a a quiet pizza and some beer which turned into pizza, beer and quite a few pornstar martinis! Personally I’ve always refused to order a drink with such a tacky name and shot of prosecco on the side, but it turns out they’re pretty tasty! Cue the biggest order of chicken nuggets at 3am – Friday night done well!
My second round of potter fun came in the form of a pottery painting class at the weekend! I’d never done it before but I went down to Pretty Pots in Milford with my friend Sophie for a couple of hours of mindfulness getting creative over a cup of coffee and delicious slice of cake. I created a geometric giraffe (something I didn’t know I needed until it was complete and is now sat proudly on my mantlepiece!) and it was so much fun! Incredibly relaxing and right up my street. Plus it was a lot easier than it looks – I’ll 100% be going back!
The rest of the week was spent working at my laptop, easing in back at the gym (shock horror, what is this strange place?) and trying to eat a little better and avoid the Christmas chocolate haunting my cupboard. Which apart from a fancy meal out and our pizza night, I did pretty well at. Sort of. Maybe. Welllllll. Ok, there’s always next week!
At the weekend I went down to London for a conference with all my Bumble Honeys from the Queen Bee programme! It was so lovely to meet all the girls from each city and sit in Bumble HQ which is instagrammable af by the way. I’m going to be telling you a bit more about what I do for Bumble in the coming weeks but let’s just say – we have some awesome free events planned across the country that you guys can all get involved in!
