Good morning friends, and Happy Sunday!
With such a busy 2019, especially December, I’ve decided to have a more relaxed January. We decided to spend the first weekend of January relaxing but being productive.
Saturday morning I woke up after a lie in, I definitely needed to catch up on a few hours of sleep!
After rolling out of bed and doing my yoga, I made myself a big omelette.
3 eggs, handful of spinach leaves, 2 mushrooms, sprinkle of salt, pepper and paprika.
After glamming for the day, my boyfriend and I packed up 2 more bags of clothing and books, and dropped them to the charity shop.
We strolled into town to run a few errands and then met some friends at a local Cafe in Newport, ‘Cafe Isola’.
Cafe Isola is a great meeting spot for large groups, and families. With a fantastic variety of hot and cold food and drinks, and desserts, a decent space between tables for prams and buggies, and so you dobt feel like you’re sitting on the person next to yours laps.
I ordered a Pot of earl grey tea, which was presented nicely, but was accompanied by an egg timer.
I was intrigued about the egg timer, and asked the server what it was for. She told me that it has different times for you to brew your tea.
I don’t mean to sound rude but, A little too pretentious and hipster for me to use … my teas done when it’s done. I’ve managed to make a brew for 29 years without any issue, sure I can manage without.
Did make for a nice photo though!
Our friends arrived with their gorgeous kids, including their 1 week old baby, who I had cuddles with, I turned to mush!
We each dug into a bit of lunch before exchanging late christmas presents.
Chicken, pepper, onion pizza
The other 3 in the group recieved alcohol, but my present really stood out. I got a awesome wooden ‘Bat-Duck’. Have you been anything like him? How incredible! He shall sit proud on our book shelf
After a good free hours of chatting, my boyfriend and I decided to visit my late grandad. My Grandads birthday was yesterday, so we visited his grave and planted a Cyclamen. I have never heard of this plant before, but it looked pretty, good for the winter months, and I know he’d appreciate that more than a bunch of flowers.
Plans had changed, so we now had a free evening. Sun had set so we decided to settle in for the night.
Whilst my love cooked us dinner, I did my insanity work out. Shaun T totally kicked my ass, I was dripping with sweat!
After my shower I entered the kitchen to the most amazing smell, he made me lamb chops. Now my man can cook! The just fell of the bone!
We’d normally have a tipple on a Saturday night, My love had a few beers but I stuck to squash as I’m taking part in Dry january.
The rest of the evening was extremly chilled. We watched the first episode of ‘The masked singer’, my boyfriend was not into it! Oh well.
Only a few days ago I watched a clip of the US version, and thought it looked hilarious.
On the judges panel for the UK version were Jonathon Ross, Ken John Davina Macall, and Rita Ora.
I wasnt sure what I’d make of it but it was great! The costumes are wild, and it completely draws you in, i didnt have a clue. What a fantastic concept for a tv show! I’m seriously impressed that anyone could sing and dance in that get up!
For the rest of the evening I threw on a face mask and played a few hours of the Sims whilst he played Batman.
We fell into bed about 11, so I snuggled down and I read a couple of pages of my book for this month.
What did you do with your first Saturday of the year?
