Although I have taken part in a “week in the life” from Ali Edward’s blog, I haven’t done a regular Daily Grind/Day in the life project in quite some time… So you shall notice quite a few changes around here…

2013-06-27 06.50.28

6.50am: Alarm goes off at 6.30 and I get up and briefly catch up on the news before I head out in to the kitchen to make myself some strawberry milk and my husband (change 1: I’m married!) his egg mayo sandwiches for work. I forgot to get myself something to put in sandwiches like a donut!

2013-06-27 06.59.48

6.59am: catching up on the weather but I’m not making that much notice as I’m getting ready myself and hubby is about to leave for work

2013-06-27 07.54.04

7.54am: I work in a new place now, after I was made redundant in January from my old job after being there for 8 years. I wave to the gate house guy as he signs me in and out.

2013-06-27 08.02.31

8.02am: Have started work and am eating breakfast and taking my medicine. I was diagnosed with colitis in July last year and have since had my meds doubled so I have to take another one later on.

2013-06-27 09.48.05

9.48am: First snack of the day, I have quite a thing for cheese LOL

2013-06-27 11.51.52

11.51am: Lunch isn’t far away but I can’t wait so I munch on some crisps for now.

2013-06-27 12.13.27

12.13pm: it’s almost lunch but I cave and eat my yogurt and head off to the water cooler to fill up on some water for my squash. That cup is my special cup from our honeymoon trip to Disney World!

2013-06-27 12.35.45


12.35pm: Lunch time, and this is why I cannot really take any photos. I work somewhere that the stuff being made is top secret!

2013-06-27 12.36.42

12.36pm: Hello car! Yup, I still like to sit in the back of my car at lunch time to relax 😀

2013-06-27 12.38.22

12.38pm: Ahhhh, feet up. And it’s nice and sunny, so I decide to leave my coat in the car as it didn’t start off so great.

2013-06-27 13.47.31

13.47pm: Ah yes, change number two: I’m pregnant LOL. baby is giving me a few kicks whilst I work on some invoices 🙂

2013-06-27 14.58.19

14.58: The gatehouse guy brings in more invoices and a little treat for me! So, erm, I scoff it down LOL

2013-06-27 16.35.17


16.35pm: It’s hometime and genius I am left the coat in the car and it chucked it down with rain. I stick the heaters on in the car to warm up and dry off a bit! I check back to earlier and it does indeed say it was going to rain. I should have paid attention!

2013-06-27 17.16.21

17.16pm: I get home by 5 Mondays to Thursdays (Fridays are 1pm finish, I am spoiled!) , so I try and decide on some food as I really can’t wait for Gareth to come home. The yorkie pud meal is the winner!

2013-06-27 17.21.29

17.21pm: While the food is cooking, I do the washing up. My energy levels still haven’t picked up and I’m 19 weeks pregnant today. So lately around here, chores kinda get left as I am too tired.

2013-06-27 18.09

18.09: I catch up on Facebook, Feedly, twitter and Pinterest on my phone.

2013-06-27 18.44.34

18.44: Florida calling! We get a call from Matt on Facetime and then I leave Gareth to chat with him while I carry on doing a few bits 🙂

2013-06-27 18.50.59

18.50: I love the Mum & Me range and I have the sleep mist, bubble bath, bump cream & shampoo! It’s time for a shower, and then I just veg out on the sofa. I’m not moving for anyone!

2013-06-27 20.01.39

20.01: The reason we love Thursdays! As Gareth plays World of Warcraft, first on TV is Big Bang Theory. I curl up on the sofa and relax!

2013-06-27 20.33.56-1

20.33: How I Met Your Mother, and it’s Barney’s bachelor party.

2013-06-27 20.59.54

20.59: That’s me done! I head off to bed as I can’t stay up any longer. Yes, there is more housework to do but I am absolutely shattered so Gareth stays up a little longer as I snuggle up to my pregnancy pillow.  Night all!
