Earlier this year I signed up to the gym and I wrote a previous post about it here.  To be honest I am still surprised that I stuck at it and enjoy it as much as I do.  It has really made a big change mentally and physically.  I am more than happy to write about this so let me know in the comments if it is something you would like to read.  

Back to todays post: I thought it was about time I shared some of what I do in the gym to maybe give some of you guys a few new ides.  I am always on the lookout for new ideas and things to add to my circuits and I thought you might be too.

A kid free Saturday mean afternoon tea with the girls in Harvey Nichols, because why ever not?  Lots of little sandwiches were eaten along with scones and decadent cakes.  And so much tea was drunk.  I love tea but even I might have been all tee-ed out by the end.

The best part was the company and the long winding chats and my eureka moment.

Reading has always been a passions of mine.  As a young child I always had my nose in a book and that has not changed.  However recently I have found reading is something that seems to ebb and flow in my life and over recent years it seems to have ebbed more than it has flowed with sleep taking precedence.  The life of being a parent to two small children: permanent exhaustion.

watching: Cold Feet.  This programme just gives me the warm fuzzes.  It is British and that great British humour that I love and I might have been brought up around it.  My Mum is a massive fan and might have cried when Rachel dies: oh yes she is a mega fan.

In winter I go one of two ways.  Either: skinny jeans and layers and layers of jumpers which makes me somewhat resemble a sparrow; or I pull out a skirt, normally above the knee, and a pair of thick tights.

Today is World Mental Health Day, as you probably found out by reading the title of this blog post.  But what you probably do not know is how important this day is to me and why.

Despite posting pretty photos of outfits and focussing on the good parts of life, this blog unsurprisingly just shows a very small proportion of my life; my interests and me.  And the things I am about to share are something that I have only recently shared with some of my closest friends and that for a long long time I just kept to myself.

I wore this outfit on the first day of October when the temperature suddenly dropped and it felt like Autumn.

September with its mildness had made me forget how chilly the early mornings get, but really I am loving it because I was sick of the unpredictable humidity and just wanted the crispness in the air so I could break out my new boots.
