Currently // August

I love writing currently posts and sharing all the things I loving at the moment, new and old. Here are some of things that I’m currently loving and enjoying, amazingly they are not all food ( I know I’m shocked too ). Why not drop a comment below and tell me about all the things you are currently loving and doing at the moment.


Reading // Harry Potter and the cursed child, Jamie surprised me with a trip to the midnight release of the book ( my first ever midnight release experience ) I absolutely loved it, it’s just the screenplay of the show in London but it was still exciting to read more Potter books although I would have much preferred the story in several books and in a lot more detail. I want so badly to go and watch the show unfortunately it is very much sold out so will just have to get my butt to the Harry Potter studios to get my Potter fix.


Feeling // Absolutely awful, you might have heard me moaning about feeling poorly for what feels like forever. I have been ignoring tooth ache for about three months which was a big mistake in the last week I have had two hospital trips, two dentist trips, a rather bad infection in my face, six teeth removed and a pretty bad dependency on pain killers. It’s save to say you shouldn’t ignore toothache, I am recovering now, I’m sore from the teeth being removed and my face is still swollen and sore. Worse of all I am trying to come off the pain killers which is leaving me feeling worse than the toothache in the first place. And it all started because I didn’t want one tooth removed I was convinced the tooth would settle down now I have lost six, including two wisdom teeth and have months of work on my teeth ahead of me now.


Celebrating // My thirty second birthday ( doesn’t seem so bad if I can’t see the numbers ) Ok so technically this was in July but the celebrating continued into August so that counts right. I absolutely love my thirties, I would never go back to my twenties, my thirties have been the most positive years of my life so far although when I was a child I thought my life would have been very different than it is now. Not that I am complaining, there is nothing I would change about my life because I know I wouldn’t be where I am now without all those experiences although I wish I could wipe the memory of some boyfriends and very bad fashion choices away.


Eating //  With being in constant pain I have been doing a ridiculous amount of comfort eating, mainly cake and ice cream purely to boost my mood and make me feel better, which worked at the time but after weeks of this it left me feeling bloated and to be honest very gross. So in the last couple of weeks I’ve been trying my best to eat better and remember the reason all this started was because of cake and ice cream. Jamie got me this Fearne Cotton cook happy, cook healthy book for my birthday and I absolutely love it and I’ve been trying a few recipes out. Although a salad is not as comforting as a piece of cake.


Watching // Team GB at the Rio Olympics, if I can’t do sport than I will at least watch it. So far my highlight has been watching Joe Clarke win gold in the kayak slalom which has made me want to buy a kayak, it’s been so disappointing to see so many empty seats at each event. I also enjoyed the men’s diving ( cheeky little giggle ). As much as I love the Olympics I’m most looking forward to watching the Paralympics because it just blows my mind, there are so many talented people in this world who show us just what each human being is capable of.


Loving // When I saw the trailer for suicide squad I was so exciting to watch it, then I heard so many disappointing reviews. Luckily I still went to the cinema to watch it and absolutely loved it. There was some bad bits and the joker was questionable, I felt the film was a perfect puzzle but someone had put it together wrong. On paper it would have been perfect but it was just missing something although Will Smith and Margot Robbie were brilliant in it.


Visiting // Another one that isn’t technically August but since you have read my blog posts in August it kinda counts. We are so incredibly lucky to live within a hours drive of the beautiful country that is Wales. Me and Jamie spent so much of our childhood discovering Wales that we had the must wonderful stories and memories to share with each other. Despite the British weather being so unpredictable we lucked out on our weeks holiday a couple of weeks ago. We even made a few new memories together, hopefully we will still be eating fish and chips on the sea front in forty years.


Hating // With my teeth problems and face infection I haven’t been able to go the gym for three weeks now which is killing me, I feel like exercise is such a big part of my life now that when I can’t do it, it feels like I’m missing a limb, I know three weeks won’t ruin my fitness levels but it has definitely changed my body shape, although I’m trying to think of the positives like a new fitness routine and that wonderful feeling I get when I exercise. And fingers crossed I will be fit enough to walk up Snowdon this weekend. Keep everything crossed for me.


Needing // Another holiday desperately! But this time just a holiday to sleep on a far away beach only waking to go for a paddle in the ocean.


Enjoying // This beautiful little lady is called Poppy and she has a little piece of my heart forever, she used to live in our house before Jamie bought it and the owner left her behind and now she lives with our beautiful neighbour Claire. The second I come onto my street she comes over for a love and she is the most affectionate cat I have ever met. I always want to scoop her up and run away with her, she makes me want to have a cat and even Dave likes to play with her.


Drinking // Innocent cold pressed juice, I tried this for the first time last week and its absolutely delicious. I try to watch what I drink because there is so many hidden calories in what we drink. But this is definitely worth the calories and it makes for a perfect post gym drink, now to try the other flavours.

Considering // Vlogging, I know I’ve spoke about this before but I really want to start vlogging, imagine how much more I could ramble. I’m so scared of looking stupid that I haven’t done it yet and I know that’s silly but I’m a seriously awkward person. Maybe this month I will have a little practice go and see what it’s like, practice makes perfect after all.

And there you have it, all the things I have been currently up to! What have you been up to? Have you read Harry Potter yet? Or seen suicide squad?

    I’m going to be getting Cursed Child from a friend in November (we’re doing a book swap) so I’m excited to have a read then. I have heard a lot of mixed reviews, but I’m still interested to see what it’s all about.

    Oh I’m sorry about the teeth! They are can be such a pain (and expensive) to deal with. I hope it all goes well from here on out though! Feel better soon!

    I’ve been quite excited about Suicide Squad and considered going to see it at the cinema, I haven’t seen many reviews though, I just watched the trailer. I might still go, but at least I know it might not live up to my expectations. I found Deadpool to be the same, I really didn’t enjoy that, although Kris did so it could have been just me.

    I so want to discover more of Wales, we never lived too far when we were living in the UK but I have made very few trips there.
