The Easy Life?

We all want an easy life, but what exactly is that and is it really a thing? Does an easy life really exist? It's something I've been pondering on for a while now. This is in part down to a phrase my Mum uses regularly, and partly down to the fact that I am a self confessed over thinker! I really wish I weren't. It drives me quite mad at times (literally on occasion), but it can also give me an insight into things I don't understand (make sure you learn something new everyday) or more often, it gives me an insight into me, who I am and how I process things. However, as always and true to myself, I have gone completely off-track.

Celebrating Wednesday's #38

Good morning everyone and welcome to the middle of another week. I'm never sure whether I'm nearer to the end of the week, or just a little further away from Monday, if that makes any sense, which it probably doesn't. Either way, it's Wednesday and on Wednesday, we do like to give you a little something to celebrate, or at the very least, ponder upon and this week is no exception.

I have to say, this Wednesday is very spoilt with not one, but four things to celebrate. You could have had Coast Guard Day (very apt for the summer break), Single Working Women's Day or (and I was very tempted by this one) Assistance Dog Day. It wasn't an easy decision to make, but in the end I settled for the fourth option, which I think you'll love.

Celebrating Wednesday's #37

It's been a very long time since last we posted, and even longer since we actually celebrated a Wednesday! What can I say, the past couple of years have been a journey and a half, which I will expand upon in another, more appropriate post; for now, let's just say, it's been a stressful time.

However, we're back now and easing our way back into the blogging world. Forgive me for being a little rusty. I had been pondering, somewhat on what might be the best way to get back into things and after a wee bit of research (ok, research is a bit of a lie, I actually stumbled across something) I discovered that today, Wednesday 28th July is a really rather special day indeed and one which frankly, should be very easy to celebrate, for most of us.

What can I say, here in Blighty (at least in the East) it is currently grey and wet. It is a day for staying indoors, watching TV, reading a book, sipping a hot drink and celebrating...

Milk Chocolate Day!

Now, I do have some of the gorgeous sweet stuff in the house, but how I wish I'd done my research before I ventured into town and walked straight past Hotel Chocolat, not once, but four times (not my fault, I moved during lockdown and still don't know where everything is yet). At the time, I thought I was being very self disciplined and was feeling a little smug at how strong I was being, in hindsight, I can see I made a massive faux pas! Today of all days requires a little more than a Freddo and yet here I am, with only a Freddo to raise in honour of Milk Chocolate Day.

I would venture out to the local shop and get something a little more substantial and worthy of such a special day, but like I said, it's grey and wet out and I really don't fancy get caught in a downpour. However, I will make sure that I absolutely make a huge, belated effort tomorrow and maybe the day after too, just to be certain I've done today proud.

So the question is, how are you going to celebrate Milk Chocolate Day? Will you brave the Great British Summer and stock up on your favourite bar, or box of chocolates, or will you bake a cake? Maybe you're more of a chocolate ice cream person, or perhaps you'd rather cosy up on the sofa with a hot chocolate.

However you choose to celebrate this sweet day, enjoy and try not to over indulge too much. As for me, I shall be raising not one, but two Freddo's to the day!
