Each Monday I start with a sum up of what’s currently happening around these parts – especially when some weeks seem to fly by quicker than others!
I had a bit of a blast from the past and so watched 13 Going on 30 and started watching 27 Dresses. Also been watching DIY SOS, a handful of TED Talks (including John Green) and Agent Carter.
My friend lent me the The Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins before I went on holiday – I’m now on Book 4 (Gregor and the Marks of Secret). I’ve got one more to go which I’ll be starting today.
I’ve been learning and making Pinterest friendly images for my blog. Hence the redesign of the Currently image. The background is a Canva default one but I figured while I’m still getting the hang of it I’d start with the defaults and work on my own ones in the future.
Last week was a real mixture eating wise. I was trying to be good but there were leftovers and we were living on tinned stuff left over from holiday while I sorted out the food shopping. I missed the cut off on Monday so the food order could be delivered until Wednesday. However now we have lots of Slimming World friendly food in the house which is helping. I’m determined to stand on the scales with a lose on Thursday. Since Run Bedford I’ve been meaning to walk the 10k route, for one or another reason I keep putting it off but the weather is predicting that August is going to be drier than July so hopefully I’ll be able to get out and do it. I can walk a 5k in 50 minutes ish so I should be able to do it in 2 hours in theory so should be able to chuck it in one afternoon after lunch, just make sure Jaxon is lathered in sun cream and had some toys to play with in his buggy.
So having learnt all about Pinterest pins, I’m going to go back and work through my posts hopefully creating some better pins as I go. I’ve also learnt about improving SEO so now my links have the titles in them rather than by date (apparently this was a better system to use than how I had it previously).
It’s August and I’m joining a few of my blogger friends to blog every day this month, at least around here you’ll be able to find all my posts under BEDIA. Be sure to check out their blogs too.
