Caerphilly Mountain

Maybe I shouldn't be writing this now because I am so amusingly exhausted I can barely lift my fingers to type, but I will regardless even if it takes me twice as long and I fall asleep half way through. As I had a Sunday off (today) without Tom I decided I would walk to the International Swimming Pool in the Bay from my house in Roath (my bike being in Penarth at the moment). It was a really lovely walk to be fair, I left 10.22am and arrived under 80 minutes later. Swam for half an hour, which took more out of me than I was expecting.. and then headed back arriving home around half an hour ago. I. Am. Shattered. Like I rarely need nap but I feel so physically drained I could most definitely nap right now. Maybe next time I'll cycle there...  

So yesterday I also had the day off and Josie did also, so we arranged to meet up at her house and then walk Caerphilly Mountain which I realised I haven't done before. You start off in Cefn Onn which I used to regularly go to and then follow a side path up the mountain until you come out to a magnificent view of the surrounding valleys and Cardiff. It was beautiful! And we had such lovely weather for it. 

News at home.. yesterday we thought Wally had gotten conjunctivitis because he couldn't open one of his eyes. It improved a lot throughout the day and today he can open it fine but its starting to look more like something has scratched the surface of his eye!! Either a claw (his or the cats) or a stick or something. :( We don't really know too much about it, I'm just assuming from what I can see. I don't think it would of made him fully blind in that eye but the top film of the eye seems damaged!! Poor Wally. Maybe we'll find out soon what it is. 

Now for the rest of my day I'm probably going to read, maybe not in my bed though because I'll definitely end up falling asleep!

Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind

Hey, really been feeling like writing a blog post lately. The last few days for me have been really good. I've been really positive about things and really enjoyed keeping busy, even if that is accounting for little Wally's needs. The weather on Sunday was absolutely beautiful. After my shift me and Tom lay about his garden in 23 degrees and then went for a nice walk along the cliff tops. Monday and today have been fairly rainy (I don't think it'll let up today) but still pleasantly warm. I've just cycled home from Penarth and got positively soaked, but it was so enjoyable... Summer rain is just as nice as Summer sun sometimes as long as it's not day in day out. Everythings so green and healthy at the moment I love it. 

The title of today's post is something I've been repeating in my head recently. I seem to have a mind capable of thinking out a situation a hundred times in great depth until I can't think about it anymore and then it's gone. Recently the thing thats been stuck in my head is something I'd rather not have in it as its completely unresolveable and usually just creates unnecessary stress. So out of sight, out of mind seems like a reasonable thing to remind myself, and it has kind of worked I have to say. There's a picture that I saw on my facebook feed below that I feel really speaks to me and is very similar to my own philosophy. Not only does a positive attitude create a positive life around you, but it can also create a positive atmosphere for someone else, or even make their day slightly better or easier. People forget sometimes how easy it is to be nice, polite and friendly. It's such a simple thing that can sometimes go a long way. So don't ever think I'm going to apologise or feel out of place because I think positively and have a happy attitude towards things. 

Now here are just a few little pictures from my DSLR. Spring is oh so definitely apon us. 


 Enjoying the sun!
 Spring bulbs!! Cannot wait to see the pretty pink, white and yellow flowers :)

Meet Wally!

So there's a new four legged creature scrurrying around the house. Although he's currently sleeping which suits me fine, I was even falling asleep with him a bit earlier, but then I realised I could be using my time a bit more wisely. Sunday my parents and brother went to go collect our new greyhound - staffordshire bull terrior cross (lurcher). He is so cute! Mainly because he currently looks more staffy than greyhound. :) We've named him Wally which is alright I guess, it was hard to come up with a name that everyone liked and this was our closes bet, so Wally it is. I know I've wrote about him already in my previous posts so I won't go on too much, here are just a few pictures of him I took with our DSLR.

Tom's Twenty-First

Hey just a quick post. It was Tom's birthday on Sunday and we took a few photos on the camera, so I just wanted to upload them. I had a really nice bank holiday weekend and was lucky enough to only have to work Saturday morning and then I had Sunday and Monday off. Saturday evening his family and us went for a meal. Sunday was cake eating and present opening, and then we got ready in the afternoon and headed to Tramsheds for a music event that I really enjoyed. We stayed dancing until 9pm and then headed home to bed. Can you believe it?! It's a sign we're getting older lmao. It was nice though because we got a good nights sleep and then had the whole of Monday to relax and eat more cake and then head back to mine in the afternoon to go meet the new puppy!! Which I've already mentioned lmao. So yeah I have a really lovely weekend and here are a few little piccys. 
 Hehehe cutieeeeeee :)
