It’s been so long since I’ve posted a W&L.  Seeing as it’s Thursday, let’s get back on this bandwagon.

Wine and Love is hosted by Suki. The concept is simple – each Thursday you post about what’s making you reach for the wine glass and what you’re loving.  Head over to Suki’s blog to link up!

Wine & Love


  • It’s been a rough week, Tuesday was by far the hardest day.  I’d go into details, but I don’t really want to, nor can I, really.  So, yay, vague w(h)ine.
  • ROOFERS.  The job was supposed to take 5 days, but they ended up working on the roof for three weeks.  I had to deal with rubbish all over my drive way and in my backyard and falling through the exhaust fans in my bathrooms for three weeks.  A very unwelcome stress.  I get it needed to be done, but…. jeeeeez.



  • I passed my course and have already received my certificate in the post.  So… yay to another piece of paper
  • I’m really loving my uke.  Took it with me when we went to the cottage two weeks ago and it was awesome to have it around.  I’ve learned a lot of chords, but noticeably, the G, D, Em and C.  So I can now play practically any pop song ever written.
  • In order to counter the stress, I’ve added boxing back into my workouts.  It’s made a huge difference.  Really enjoying it.
  • I’m meeting with a potential client tonight.  Very excited about that.


What are you w(h)ining and loving this week?


  • Yay for clients and boxing. I may need to bust out the Wii again.

    Also, I still hope one day you’ll vlog something with the uke. 🙂

      The heavy bag was WAY more fun than the Wii. Seriously. Actually making contact?

      Yeah, we’ll see about that. I love to play the uke cuz it’s just fun. If I have to actually share it with people (sober people), then I’d want it to be perfect.

      I’m so not there yet with it.

  • you can play the uke?! amaaaazing. 🙂 congrats on the new piece of paper.

    Boxing is an amazing workout and a great stress reliever! I have to get back to it. I haven’t been since Feb and I’m missing it.
