Cherry Pie : Five good things #9

Five good things #9

Another week gone, can you believe it? Can you believe it's the last full week of May, I definitely can't! Yesterday I had a super chilled Saturday complete with housework and blog photo taking. The weather hasn't been particularly good, quite a contrast to last weekend, and I'm trying hard to hold on until pay day so there's a strict no shopping rule on at the moment.

On Monday Mum and I had another yoga class. This time I managed to do at least 15 seconds of a plank, so I'm pretty pleased. I am so awful at them but everyone else (who is much older I might add) do them with ease while I just lye on my stomach after collapsing. It looks like I'm getting better so I best keep practicing. I have another class tomorrow but then we skip a week because of the Bank Holiday, boo!

I've been getting on well with my star blanket this week. I've been trying to do more crochet in the evenings instead of spending them infront of my laptop. The blanket has definitely got bigger and I'm starting to make my way through my wool stash now. I had a class on Thursday, which is our last until July (boo!) and it was good to have two hours completely dedicated to getting on with it. It'll be finished in no time, hopefully!

Last week I mentioned I got a new exercise bike and yesterday I finally got around to getting a workout in. I thought I was starting out on a pretty easy program but it turned out it was a bit tougher than I thought, I did power through though and managed 13.02km. I really love the bike, it's so easy to use and has lots more options than the one I had before. You'll be happy to know the old one finally got picked up, hurrah!

Cherry Pie plot
A little while ago I mentioned that I got some lettuce, tomato and runner bean plants, well yesterday I was able to cut the lettuce as it has grown loads over the past two weeks or so. I ended up with three bags full of lettuce leaves, I can't believe it. I also can't believe how easy it was to grow, I wish I'd done it sooner. Now I'm just waiting for the runner beans and tomatos to grow!

Day off with Vince
So Vince has the day off together, which will be nice. I'm not really sure what we're going to do, if we're going to do anything at all really but it's nice to have the day off together. I have the Bank Holiday off as well so am hoping Vince can book it off too!

What five good things have happened in your week? Let me know in the comments.

  2. When I first read this I thought you said 15 minutes of the plank, I was like woah haha! Yoga classes are the best. It's so nice that you're growing your own little plants :)

  3. I haven't used an exercise bike in a while but I really love those things, they're so much more entertaining than going on a treadmill in my opinion!

    I'm off on an overseas trip tomorrow so that's definitely a good thing that's happening to me this week :)
