On Sunday my parents came down to visit me while the Mr was on a work trip. We had the best day, which included a roast dinner at The White Bear on St Michael’s Hill and teaching Mama Ship-Shape to hula-hoop (she now wants a circus hoop for her birthday, which I think is pretty rock ‘n’ roll for a 60-something mum!). They also brought with them an early birthday present – a new lens for my DSLR. I’m now the proud owner of a ‘nifty fifty’ 50mm fixed lens and I can’t wait to try it out.
I’ve now finished the hula-hooping course I was on and even went as far as buying my own hoop! I’ve rediscovered a love of exercise of late, and a lot of that has been down to taking fun classes like hooping and aerial silks. If you have any classes or activities you’re loving right now, let me know, as I’m itching to try something new…
This week I’ve been…
Blogging about: Bristol Fashion Week – a pair of tickets to the catwalk show of your choice are up for grabs in this post. I’ve also talking ‘pops of colour’ with a review of the Sleek Blush By 3 palette in Lace.
Listening to: My hula-hooping instructor has been playing several mixes by Itchy Feet, DJs who mix together electro swing, reggae, mashups – you name it – to produce toe tapping (or in my case hoop whirling) tunes.
Watching: My guilty pleasure, America’s Next Top Model. The latest series is a university/college edition with a social media aspect, which Tyra and co are hamming up big time, but it still has me tuning in each week.
Reading: I’ve just finished The Mystery of Mercy Close by Marian Keyes, so now I’m wading through lots of old Sunday supplements that Mama Ship-Shape brought me – they get recycled through at least four members of our family before they reach me!
