What’s Up Wednesday #8

I haven’t typed those words in almost 6 months! I thought it would be nice to do this post as a little catch up post since I’ve been back from holiday! As always, this post was started by  Shay over at Mix’n’Match Mama.

What We’re Eating This Week

Lots of food. Especially as we’re heading into winter, we’re having more comfort foods. Roasts, soups, etc.

What I’m Reminiscing About

Obviously, our very recent Japan trip!

What I’m Loving

Getting back into blogging! I loved writing our Japan recaps, and coming up with ideas for posts this month!

What We’ve Been Up To

Since our bathroom has been remodeled, we’ve been thinking of other projects we’d like to do around the house. Nothing as big as remodelling a whole room, but little DIY ideas here and there.


What I’m Dreading

The sicknesses that come with the colder seasons. Since working with kids, every year I get hit with a variety of bugs and colds no matter how much I try keep myself healthy. One of the downfalls of working with very young children who will sometimes cough in your face.

What I’m Working On

A few projects I have in mind at the moment. Some Pinterest DIY’s that have caught my eye, and getting mementos together from our Japan trip. Trying to read more books to catch up on my Reading Challenge. Just keeping on top of my many hobbies really.


What I’m Excited About

There is a few things we’re working on, but we’re keeping it hush at the moment as we work things out.

What I’m Watching/Reading

I’ve been catching up on The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2

I’m currently reading Still Me by Jojo Moyes.

What I’m Listening To

Again, mostly pop, it’s fun to sing and dance to.

What I’m Wearing

Many, many layers.

What I’m Doing This Weekend

We’re going back to visit the Cat Cafe! It’s also my brother’s birthday soon, so we’ll be having dinner with my family.

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month

Honestly, there’s not too much going on in the next month. Just work and saving up.

What Else is New

Not too much else.

What’s been going on with you guys lately?


Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. We have a cat cafe near us and I’ve been wanting to go so bad!

    1. Ooh you should go!! Its always so much fun 😄

  2. I love the idea of this post, it’s all so quick and simple.

    1. It’s always a nice post to do every now and then 🤗

  3. Ahhh LOVE these posts! Sending you all the healthy vibes beauty! The struggle to stay healthy is REAL! And I love the songs you are listening too! I hope you have an amazing Wednesday! <3

    1. Thanks Kate! It’s always frustrating getting sick, especially when it feels like the weather is out to get you 😂 I hope you a great week 😄

      1. You are most welcome sweets! It is! Thanks love I hope you are too! <3

  4. I still haven’t watched any of The Handmaids Tale! Really need to get on that 🙂

    1. It can get pretty brutal at times, but I can’t stop watching. It’s scary to think of a world like that 😓 That being said, I definitely recommend the show!

      1. I remember reading the book and finding it amazing.. disturbing but amazing but it felt so realistic.

  5. I wish we have cat caffee here, that’s such a cool idea, I would totally go there. Great catching up with you Angela! xx

    1. It’s so much fun to spend time there! Just hanging out with cats for an hour 😄

  6. My ex-boyfriend and I talked about visiting the cat cafe here but since we’re no longer together I probably won’t get to go anytime soon 🙁 I love winter for soup, my mum makes a homemade vegetable soup and it is honestly one of my yearly highlights 🙂

    1. Aww that’s a shame 😯 hopefully you can still go visit sometime. It’s such a nice way to kill some time, just hanging with a bunch of cats 🙂
      Soup is definitely one of winter’s highlights. It’s not quite the same having hot soup in summer 😂

      1. Hopefully I can 😊 soup in summer isn’t the same lol 😂

  7. I know what you mean about kids and germs! In the 9 months I worked at school I was the most ill I’d ever been! especially over winter!

    1. Haha, it’s so true! I’m normally pretty good at keeping myself healthy despite all the bugs flying around, but it gets harder in winter for sure!

  8. I love what’s up Wednesday posts!! It’s so crazy to think you are heading into winter while I’m heading into summer 😂 xx

    1. They’re one of my favourite catch up posts! Haha, it’s still hard to wrap my head around as well 😄

  9. Has it really been that long since you last wrong one? Wow. And DIY projects sound good for a little remodel. I plan on doing the same because I hate how my bathroom looks right now lol. I can’t wait to hear what you got planned cause you don’t wanna tell us lol.

    1. I stopped the posts this year cause I figured I did too many catch up posts haha! We had a big remodel for our bathroom actually, as we had flooring and piping issues. So we had to bring people in to redo our whole bathroom really. We want to do little projects in our bedroom and office as we haven’t done anything to it so it’s mostly clutter 😀

      1. Oh okay that makes sense.

  10. I love whats up wednesday idea. I am looking for an idea for wednesdays for my own blog. Great idea!

    1. It’s definitely a fun catch-up post idea 🙂

      1. I bet! great post!
