Spring in the air
I'm finally home for Easter and I can honestly say I was ready for the break. To be back home where I can take care of myself, spend time with family and collect my thoughts over where I want to go in the future is something I have ultimately needed over the past few weeks. As soon as I came back I was straight back at my old job to earn extra money over the holidays which I honestly don't mind, as I work with such lovely people. But today was my day off, a chance to indulge in a little time for myself, and I've loved every minute of it. I woke up early to beautiful blue skies and the sun shining and decide to get out for a lovely walk before starting my day. It was inspiring to get out and finally feel the sun on my face and start to see flowers blossoming and bugs and birds flying around going about their daily business. A little walk is always a great time for me to reflect on things, and think about things that are on my mind.
Once I got back I decided to take a trip to the library and find a new book to read whilst I'm at home, (despite the fact I've got plenty of Biology related books I should be reading and plenty of notes to be looking over for revision) so I was pretty much straight back out again to the calmness and serenity of the library. I came back with The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (please do not shun me away, disgusted by the fact I am only just getting around to reading this) and already I can barely put it down to write this blog post. So since I got back from the library, I've been sat outside welcoming this early and unexpected spring sunshine, book in one hand an iced glass of lemonade in the other.
Slightly unrelated, but I've also painted my nails this afternoon. I just bought a new colour from Superdrug the other day, it's called Orange Couture by Maybelline Forever Strong Pro. I can honestly say I love it! It's a very vibrant orange, almost verging on neon, and I think it adds a strong pop of colour to my otherwise very bland I'm-not-at-work-or-doing-anything-special-today outfit! I would take a photo to show you guys but my nails are a bit of an eyesore at the moment from handling so many boxes at work, but I'm giving them daily TLC so they should be looking fairly acceptable shortly!
Is anyone else welcoming the spring sunshine? Are any of you home for Easter yet? xoxo
