A life-admin kind of Wednesday, in numbers.



7.00 :: the time both mine and Jason’s alarms went off yesterday morning. We were leaving the house together (for a meeting with a wedding catering company) but we both set alarms because we have this awful habit of turning them off in our sleep…

7.15 :: the time I actually got out of bed, after Jason and I both turned our alarms off in our sleep (so predictable).

1 :: slice of wheat-free sunflower & linseed bread eaten for breakfast, topped with whole-nut peanut butter & some sliced banana.

1/2 :: a can of dry shampoo applied to my hair, because I was running too late to wash it. Not my hair’s finest hour, if I’m honest…

200+ :: times my stomach rumbled in our meeting with the caterers, reading all about the incredible food they could serve at our wedding. (Naturally, I fell in love with the most expensive option. Oh, beef wellington. Why must you be so pricey, but so delicious?)

1000+ :: specks of mud splattered up the back of my dress, by the little dog who just refuses to shake anywhere but right by my side after a swim.

2 :: packs of Percy Pigs purchased during a petrol station pittstop. They just brought out a new flavour though (mango lions, and blackcurrant pandas!), so what was a girl to do?

4 :: times I thought I might be having a heart attack, whilst 30 Day Shred-ing in the early evening. That Jillian is one tough lady…

2 :: oatcakes eaten with rhubarb and ginger jam, as a post-lunch sweet treat. (That jam, oh my. I could eat it by the bowlful)

5 :: minutes spent raging internally at the rude cyclist who rode so close to my car when I was stopped at traffic lights that she knocked my wing mirror backwards, and didn’t bother to straighten  it back out again. Okay fine, maybe I raged externally a bit too…

1 :: tentative enquiry made into having a Hummingbird wedding cake. I’m sure the prices are silly though, so it’ll almost certainly be a no go. But still, a red velvet wedding cake would be pretty great, right?

180 :: minutes of editing done so far, for a recipe video that will probably be no longer than 5 minutes. Oh, it’s a fiddly one for sure!

700 :: the amount of £££ I found out I might be able to save, because the wedding dress I fell in love with a few weeks ago has just been put in a sample sale…

15+ :: phone calls, with various companies/wedding people. And I only missed about half of them- a record! ;)

2:1 :: ratio of tea:coffee consumption for the day.

How did your Wednesday look? Fancy leaving your own mini ‘Wednesday in numbers’ in the comments? :) I’d love to read them!

    I’m getting married in November and would die for a Hummingbird wedding cake! They’re just a bit too pricey so I’m going with the next best option: I swear by the Hummingbird cookbook so I’m making my cake myself, using their recipe!

    2 :: slices of whole wheat toast with nutella, of course
    1 :: job opportunity applied for and offered later that day
    2 :: the amount of diet cokes I had throughout my day. it’s better than 3, I guess.
    5:00 :: the time that I started getting ready for bed because I was up so late night before.

    Haha aw!! I completely understand the various stages of shock one’s body goes through when aiming to complete a Jillian Michaels workout. It is only recently I have had the pleasure of performing the Level 2 circuits of her 30 Day shred dvd. It is no walk in the park lol.

    Can’t wait to see the recipe video and good luck with all the wedding planning :D

    1 :: delicious passionfruit yoghurt
    2 :: new Pilates excercises tried
    25 :: pounds worth of lobster on a date night dinner

    I really like this as a post – but my day was far less interesting and far more negative moaning about work, haha!

    90: The number of minutes I tried to keep myself calm while dealing with difficult with the most difficult customer at work. It was a tough Wednesday! I’ve heard that https://www.facebook.com/tinkitchenuk makes some pretty amazing cakes! She was an old school friend and has catered for weddings :) Maybe worth checking out?
