Royal Wedding, Health Appointments And Birthday Celebrations

Welcome back to our Pockets of Inspiration weekly update. We have had a fantastic week and I had two well days amongst the bad ones which was fantastic. We have enjoyed a lot and I’ve had a few health appointments. Here is my summary of the week.

Inspiring Read

I can honestly say we have not read much this week. I have been too busy, watching, writing and shopping with Sylvia for her birthday. In fact we went to Primark and had a shopping spree so I simply don’t have any reads to share this week. Sometimes shopping is just way more fun. You can see our Primark Haul here!


What I Watched

Well we watched the once in a lifetime Royal Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. That’s right. We loved the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan and it was not only a beautiful ceremony, the whole day was amazing, the music, the dress and there was nothing I did not love. It was fantastic. Meghan looked stunning!

My Favourite Blog Post

I have two favourite blog posts from last week. The first was my chat on decluttering. I have been working on getting rid of the Junk and how I felt about the home being too cluttered. I also wrote a fantastic post which took several days to create called 50 Shades of Rock Painting.

 Craft of the Week

Today I’m sharing my recycled bug badges. I do like making crafts with my daughter and especially like to recycle and reduce waste, so making bug and insect badges from old badges was really simple and fun to do! I’m sure you will love it.

Blogging Progress

I have been reading the Mediavine SEO checklist, an article to help me learn how to better optimise my blog posts so they are more search friendly to google and search engines. I was pleased to see that I already do all the suggestions for optimising my posts. The only thing I haven’t done is learn how to research Keywords for blog posts. I have been reading about SEM Rush a programme that could help me find the best Keywords for my posts. I am going to set some time aside next week to see if I can research for my future posts.



Instagram is going okay. I shared some lovely pictures this week, including the hasbro Kitty toys which have been made as Prince Harry and Meghan. We are going to receive a bundle of these toys for Sylvia to review which will be exciting.

Something Lovely

Well we went shopping to the mall for Sylvia’s birthday. We saw so many lovely things including these gorgeous looking Dreamcatchers. I thought they were pretty and had to take a photo.

Sylvia also loved to see the Squishies which are a super popular at the moment. In fact she picked one and bought it as an extra birthday gift. It was fun!

Health and Weight Loss Update

On Friday I went to the Thomas Linacre Centre to do some tests in preparation for my appointment next week with the Haematology specialist. I have had serious issues with low Iron in the past two years and had to have Iron Infusions along with other treatments and so I went to get a load of blood tests done and other tests so I can find out how things are going on Thursday. I’ll update you next week.

I hope you enjoyed my weekly update. I sure enjoyed writing it!

  1. Hi Angela!
    Great to hear that you’re finding our SEO post helpful! Isn’t it the best to find out that we’re already doing good things?!?
    With your current focus on SEO (which we always love!), you might want to check out this post on the Mediavine blog on backlinks:
    This is by one of the co-hosts of The Theory of Content, an SEO podcast we love.
    Happy birthday to your girl and have a wonderful summer!

    1. Thanks Jenny. I will check this out. I finally have a green light on all my posts which is a start and I noticed an increase in keyword searches already… now to work on links and keywords!

  2. It was so disappointing to hear all of the criticism about the royal wedding. Some people had an issue with the dress, the cake, the wedding in general. I just felt so happy for them both.

    1. Yes me too. I think it’s fun to read real life rather than sponsored content and reviews all the time. Decluttering is fab!
