Make the most of your mornings

As I’m sure you’ve realised by now I love my mornings and if you follow me on Instagram you will know that last Tuesday was pretty epic.

The house on the lake has many perks – 1, it’s bigger than the room we shared for a good two years 2, the garden is a sun trap 3, I have my own kitchen and plenty of space in the fridge and 4, the nature around here is beautiful and it makes me happy.

Luckily my holiday coincided with us moving so I’ve had time to explore, create and generally gloat a bit (sorry, it has just been better than I ever imagined)!

It’s all in the name of being active so I got up and made a beetroot, ginger, celery and carrot juice for Welly and I before he was off to work to set us both up for the day. I was then ready for my walk, where I met these fellas:

After a brisk walk to warm- and wake up my body I did my Tone it up HIIT workout followed by a relaxing yoga session:

I then got to use my newest ‘gadget’ – the infamous poached egg maker. Now if you’re like me rubbish at making these delicious eggs without a little help you must try this little fella:

It resulted in this – the perfect start to my day off:

The big move

It finally happened, we’ve moved to the house on the lake and it’s fab!However, let me take you back to when we started the big move.

It’s incredible how much two people who share one room can have between them. So Everyone who knows me will be aware that I like a good plan and the move was therefore organised, time managed and it came as no surprise that the first van load looked like this:

But the two other that followed was a bit of a shock. So what’s a girl to do?! After all I do have my priorities in check :-):

Welly and I did the move each day after work for three days, we could have waited for the weekend but the excitement of having bought our first home made us feel a bit like Hercules. Plus we treated each day like a big celebration:

I’ve always been a morning person but I realised that mornings in the house on the lake are better than what I could have imagined – they are simply blissful:

And when your morning commute starts with this wonder of a walk you can’t really complain:

I can’t wait to share the progress with you as we renovate, clean and unpack this little gem.

Do you have any exciting projects brewing?
