The Alex Project – February & March

It’s been far too long since I spent some time on this small speck of the internet but the last couple of months have been so full of exciting things that I didn’t want them to go by unaccounted. As I said in my January update, this is mostly just a record for myself to look back on and remember all the fun things I did each month.

February

February was a lovely month, spent either in Bristol or back home in Devon. My weeks were pleasantly filled (but still with room to veg out on the sofa every now and then!). Halfway through the month I went to Wales for the first time (which for a Devon girl, is quite odd). We stayed in Pembrokeshire and spent the weekend walking the cliffs, eating lots of cheese and giggling. It was such a lovely weekend that just thinking back on it makes me happy!

The Alex Project – January

The Life

For me, January has been such a good start to 2017. I’ve squeezed lots in and feel like I’ve barely sat still. There have been big family get togethers, a cinema trip to La La Land, a games night and a doolally arts and crafts session, a night out (aht aht!) and an impromptu sleepover, and even a trip to laser quest (thankfully no eight-year-olds in sight).

This month I somehow ended up being interviewed on the radio about being a woman in engineering which was crazy but hilarious to look back on. I went to my first Goodgym session and had a weekend away at Bovey Castle in Devon (room service, afternoon tea, spa facial, big open fires and comfy sofas – the dream). I’ve also just gotten back from a trip to Bath with my Mum which was really lovely. I might write about some of these things soon – there’s too much to pack in to one post!

The Food

Booting this blog back up has reminded me how much I enjoy cooking and food photography. I’ve been experimenting with my camera and love love love this shot of some very yummy cookies! Continue reading
