Life's little ups and downs: what the eff is going on

Life's little ups and downs: what the eff is going on

I have had a very weird 2 weeks. After a trip to Ireland (where I picked up more than just a cute pair of sandals), I rejoined my boyfriend and his brother with my boyfriend's brother's girlfriend who is now living with us. I know that sound's confusing so imagine living  that sentence. Haha what can I say, our little apartment is certainly cozy!

I have been really enjoying my early morning walks; 2.5k though the vines while the sun rises. My boyfriend decided to accompany me on one of my walks when he had a state holiday off work. I accidentally broken him when my nift 2.5k dander morphed into a 5k exploration followed by an evening 8k over the forest-encrusted hillside.

The following weekend we dashed out to pick in up some decent running shoes and that was that. We clocked up 38k over the long weekend. And most evenings we clock at least 7k!

Now we like to go for a walk after work together, maybe through the vines or to the lake for a swim. It's been a really nice way to get some us time and a little fresh air while we're at it! The time just flies and you hardly notice the hills when your craicing away together.

I was also having a little bit of writers block for a little while. Which is unbelievably daft considering the tangents I have in the shower are often worthy of a blog post! So that was grand, I was getting back on the blogging wagon. I had my to-dos set for the following day and my updates scheduled and my photos taken. Bright and early Friday I began working on a new Photoshop challenge that was on the top of my to do list. Now, my veteran laptop is great! I can run my Premier Pro Cc, Photoshop, Chrome (and even Sims 3) on it, just not at the same time. So when I completed my PS project 3 hours later I shut down my PC because to was running a little sticky. It never turned back on. Again. Ever. *PANICKS*

This is what emergency money is for okay? In a month or so I should have a whizzy new replacement! But for now my Samsung Note 10.1 tablet will have to do.   *Wheeps from within *

There will be a slight slow-down in updates and posts but I will do my best to keep things running as smoothly as I can. You can keep up to date with my twitter and Instagram too, if you fancy.

Feeling a little like this bug without my laptop!

So between my living arrangements readjusting and my boyf becoming a walking fanatic and my laptop dying, my heart has had a lot of upheaval! Haha I'm being melodramatic. But even little changes take getting used to!

 Tel me about what you've been up to, share with me your life's little ups and downs! 😊 haha emoji overload! I should write a post entirely in emojis, are you down for that?! Have a good week guys!
