It’s been a while since I’ve posted but my (slightly belated) New Year’s Resolution was to get back into blogging and now seemed like a good time to start.
1. Skiing in Cervinia
I work for a ski company – you might have seen me gallivanting around the Alps this winter on Instagram – and this was the first FAM trip that I got to take Oliver on as well. It was also the first time I’ve skied in Italy and boy did I appreciate the cheap and abundant access to carbs this country provides. Compared with France/Austria/Switzerland, Italy is much more affordable.
Despite some adverse weather conditions in infamously windy Cervinia, we had a ball. I’ve enjoyed skiing so much more as my technique has improved and I’m so grateful for every opportunity I get to visit the mountains. Oh, and, if you ever find yourself in the Italian Alps, make sure you order a Bombardino to enjoy on a sunny slopeside terrace.
2. Getting over my injury
3. Spending time with friends
I’ve done a lot of catching up with friends this month, which has been lovely. We had friends round for a Sunday roast after my long run, I watched Frozen II and ate tacos with a girlfriend, went to a friend’s engagement party and got an invite to another. Can’t believe how grown up we’re all getting but it’s been a lovely month for friends and family and March looks set to be another good one.
4. Spring starting to make an appearance

Felt good today. Honestly the most surprising thing about marathon training has been that it’s not about stamina it’s about your body being physically able to put up with the distance. Nearly back on plan after the injury though and celebrated today with a big roast with friends 🌼
I’ve had so many lovely flowers dotted about the house this month. Partly because I got a cut-price trial of Freddie’s Flowers and partly because daffodils are so cheap and plentiful right now I just can’t help buying bunches of them in abandon. The lawn outside our flat is also covered in them, which has certainly made it feel a lot more like spring despite the various storms we’ve faced in 2020.
5. Binge-watching Love Is Blind
Less personal, but hear me out. This programme is an absolute must-watch for anyone who loves programs like First Dates, Married at First Sight, Keeping up with the Kardashians, Selling Sunset… Basically, it’s trash TV, but my God is it good. The season finale has been held back for a few days (released on the 27th February) to give everyone time to binge watch the first 9 episodes beforehand and I am so excited I cannot wait. All I have to say is Mark deserves better than Jessica and Damian is a controlling mess. So. Much. Drama.
