These shorts were an impulse buy from New Look. It's a bit out of my comfort zone to wear something high waisted with a tucked in top. Since it was a hot day so I decided to throw caution to the wind and pop them on. We took a cycle ride to the next village along and had a drink at the pub, they were really comfy even on the bike. I bought a sz24, mind you I never buy jeans from new look since they usually don't fit me right (they are normally baggy around the top of my legs). I'm still a bit unsure as to if these jeans will be a wardrobe regular, they do require a leap of faith in the tummy on show department, I do think they will come in very handy on hot days, since full jeans can get so hot.
This week has been my first week in the new job and I am sapped of all energy! The commute is 45 minutes each way and though its an easy drive it's taking some getting used to. Starting a new job is always difficult, meeting new people and learning new things is exhausting! I have been in bed by 9 most nights, the laptop has not been switched on all week!
We are incredibly lucky to live close to this beautiful countryside. I am quickly learning to love Oxfordshire it has altogether less trees than Sussex but a bit of sunshine makes the world a beautiful place.
Speaking of sunshine I got three loads of washing done today!
Just to prove I'm on my bike here it is! I am getting gradually better at biking the first time we did this route I had to keep stopping but I can get quite a bit further before I have to stop now, surprisingly I have only been a handful of times. It's a shame rain and long working hours put a stop to weekday bike rides :-( There is a pretty big hill at the end which I love whizzing down! (I do have a helmet btw. it has flowers on it!)
