Thinking Out Loud!

Hi all,

Yay it’s Thursday! Which means you know what tomorrow is…!

Do not know where today has gone! Can’t believe it’s quarter past 4 in the afternoon here already – gotta get my groove on with todays post!


Thursdays are special days in my blogging sphere, it means we can link up with the fantastic Amanda over @Runningwithspoons for a bit of randomness!

1)      Manic Thursday!


So today I CrossFitted with David in the morning, came home, showered, had breakfast, checked and commented on blogs and then headed into town! David needs some new shirts so I thought I should make the most of the summer sales being on and off into town I went!

(Love my new sweater that I got a couple of weeks ago in the Zara sale – so comfy and love the design!)

2)      Glasgow

Glasgow is so pretty – we have some amazing buildings, statues and art. Here are two that caught my eye today while I was out…


The first one is a building they have decorated above the Princes Square Arcade – it is a metal peacock (hope you can make it out) the head and body of the peacock is in the middle and its feathers spread out over the building. Stunning. Although trust me to get a picture with the only dark cloud in it – believe it or not it’s a lovely day here!


The second is one of many ‘Clyde’ statues that are situated around the city – he was the Commonwealth Games mascot and the kids (and adults alike) sure liked him!

3)      Hollister


I saw this top/ jumper in Hollister and completely fell in love with it – I love elephants! Didnt bother to look at the price though… thought it best not to and walk away! #pleaseletitbeinthesalelater

4)      Refreshment!


It was getting to around 1pm and I needed refreshment! I wasn’t hungry (thanks awesome Brussels sprout, bacon and cranberry omelette!) but I definitely needed something to drink. Went for this Coconut Water from Pret – not the best I have had but definitely hut the spot! And it has a monkey on the front, who wouldn’t love that!

5)      This t-shirt!


Spotted this t-shirt in the men’s department of Forever 21 and was so tempted to get it for David! He LOVES dinosaurs! And to be fair, they are pretty cool. Does everyone go through a dinosaur phase (or never leave it like David) or is it just our ‘Jurassic Park’ generation?

6)      Home now


Was so glad to be back home in time for a late lunch, well almost 3pm lunch! I like lunch late, is that odd? Glad to be sitting down for a while, so beat after CrossFit this morning – but more on that tomorrow…!

And that’s a wrap!

Do you like shopping on your own?

When do you eat lunch?

Dinosaurs, yay or nay?

    I actually find that I do all of my best shopping when I’m by myself because I don’t feel as rushed or guilty for making someone wait. And YAY to dinosaurs, but NAY to late lunches. I love them in theory, bunt since I wake up anywhere from 4:30 to 5, the idea of eating a late lunch is a little more than my stomach can handle.

    Yes to shopping on my own. It’s fun to just go at my own pace and take my time. That way I don’t feel rushed and I don’t have to wait around for others (I think we all have that friend who takes forever trying clothes on).

    Later lunches seem to be the norm for me lately, but not quite as late as 3 PM!

      Its true, shopping at your own pace is a lot better – I tend to shop faster by myself than if I am with others. Although sometimes when you need to stop for a coffee or lunch I do miss having company!
