What Katie Did #21

Hello Lovelies,

Have you all had a good week? It was a nice short one thanks to the Jubilee celebrations! Shame I had to fit a full 5 days work in to 3, in both my jobs! eeek!

This week has been nice and quiet and all about focusing on work and being healthy. Lots of exercise and a whopping 4.5lb loss this week which sees me smash even closer to my next stone mark, closer to my goal and even closer in to those slinkier outfits!

There’s no better feeling than buying smaller clothes and thankfully I love the shape my body is (there’s just too much of it) and as I don’t carry my weight in a weird way, as i’m losing weight i’m retaining my shape which means clothes are starting to look absolutely fab on me!

On Tuesday, we thought we’d visit a very local museum that Mr Tramp hadn’t been to before as he’s not originally from Durham and I hadn’t been since I was a very small child. The Durham Light Infantry museum is quite small but it is full of interesting facts and artefacts from WWI and WWII.

On Friday this week, I launched the first installment of my great new series called ‘A Spotlight on….’ in which I will show case my favourite bloggers and beauty insiders. I’ve already got a list of great spotlights scheduled but I am always looking for more so please use the contact form to get in touch or pass this on to your fellow bloggy friends to join in too!

Yesterday, thanks to the torrential rain, Mr Tramp and I took ourselves off for a good old traditional afternoon tea at the infamous White Monk Tea Room in Blanchland, near where we live. If you are in the local area, I wholeheartedly recommend you go, it’s fantastic and quaint! While Mr T had the full on traditional tea, I had a (pretty healthy) bowl of steaming pea & ham broth and a glass of water! Healthy living!! We managed a brief stroll before the rain caught up with us.

Today, we took a visit to Tynemouth & Whitley Bay as Mr Tramps family live at the coast. After a short run along the Fish Quay, up the huge steps and very bravely resisting all the amazing fish & chips, we did make a naughty stop for Ice Cream. Archers Ice Cream in Jesmond is just amazing. They make the tastiest ice cream ever! I had a double scoop, a peanut and a cherry while Mr T had tiramisu (mm!) and mint choc chip! I’m just jealous of Daniella as it is in her neighbourhood and miiiiiiiles away from me – HOUSE SWAP!!

In the coming week, I have 2 events to attend so I will try to take as many pictures as possible!

    I can’t wait to visit Blanchland, The museum sounds great, I used to love the military vehicle museum in Newcastle until it shut down, this one sounds like a great substitute.

      You’d have to combine it with a visit to the city centre as it’s a long way to go just to go to the museum, it’s a quick visit. It’s right next to the train station though!

    Looks like a fun week.

    I stayed in and cursed the rain 🙁

    Congratulations on the weight loss! you must be so proud of yourself, it’s so hard to keep focused sometimes and before you know it you’ve ate that whole pack of Jaffa cakes lol.

    I don’t usually do this but I’ve just posted about my exercise routine on my blog if you fancy a read =)
