- Sunday Summary: Play, Fitness & Farm Life...

Days are spent working, evenings are spent gymming, weekends are spent away, and any time in between is spent blogging aka nada.

Sigh, adult life.

That aside, I've finally managed to pull together one of my summary posts so you can see exactly what I've been up to lately. This is probably one of my favourite posts in this series so far as it includes a super fun weekend away...

First though, I wanted to share with you a play I went to see a few weeks ago: The End of Longing. Written by, and starring, Matthew Perry it's described as a "dark comedy" which I can confirm is very apt. It's clear from the start he put his heart into this play, and I'd totally recommend it if you're in London and want something to see a show.

Next is my current obsession: nut butters. Smoothies, cereal, fruit, porridge, toast; you name it, I'll team it with nut butter. Meridian FTW!

And now time to share some photos from the recent glamping trip I went on with Rob and some friends. We visited a Feather Down Farm in Kent for four days, staying in a big canvas tent with wooden floor and in the absence of electricity...

We all know less time staring at our screens is beneficial, but these four days totally highlighted that to me. Time went refreshingly slower and we felt like we had actually gone back in time. Collecting and chopping our own fire wood and boiling water on a wood burning stove was totally eye-opening (and fun) and I felt like a big kid climbing trees, not caring about getting muddy and playing with the farm animals - holding a two day old lamb was definitely a highlight.

It's so important to take time out now and again, which is why I'm going to stop apologising for not being consistent with posting on my blog. I am, however, going to apologise for not reading my list of blog favourites on a regular basis - it's got to the point where I now walk into Boots/Superdrug and don't know what I want to buy. So, watch this space for me commenting on your blogs again :)

Do you have digital detoxes? Let me know in the comments below!

  2. I think visiting the farm where there is no electricity would be really refreshing to the soul. It's nice to cut away from the hustle and bustle of the modern life.

  5. Ah the glamping looks so dreamy I feel so in need of a digital detox! And I adore the meridian nut butters, forever finding new uses for them, only this morning I mixed some into my porridge for the first time and it was delicious!

  6. The clamping trip looks like so much fun & I'd say it's definitely much needed when you work full time in London. Definitely don't feel bad about not blogging on a regular basis, as long as your enjoying life it's all that matters x

  14. Taking time where you actually enjoy your time is so important. With online browsing at its highest and watching the tv it is very easy to whittle away hours. It looks like escaping for four days did you the world of good Lucy x
