This Week


I know, I know.. I’m so rubbish but since I’ve been back in to regular blogging recently I thought I’d bring back the weekly post attempt I started earlier this year..


This week I have been mostly..sleeping. It look me considerably longer to recuperate from Vegas than I expected and so I haven’t been the most productive. I have been blogging so that’s something but everything else has fallen by the wayside. I am actually pulling out my planner after this, I have been so disorganised this year content-wise and now I feel like we’ve finally settled in to a routine in the new house I am ready to get my head straight again. In my ‘real job’ I have been under threat of redundancy for about a year and just found out I will keep a job but there’s going to be a lot of training and potentially a change of my days/hours. There are definitely times when I wish I was a full time blogger but the security of regular income and the routine of an office job is something I’m glad I’m getting to keep.


On the plane I watched the entire 3rd season of Grace & Frankie (awesome) and on the way back I watched the final season of Beauty & The Beast (bit of a let down) and Bad Moms. I had put off watching that film for so long because I assumed it would be a disappointment and I really wanted to love it but it was so great.. I’ve since bought it on iTunes and watched it a couple more times. I never loved Bridesmaids so this is the girl bro-movie I’ve been waiting for. Caught up on the new episodes of Pretty Little Liars – the latest season is really not grabbing me – and I’m still rewatching  the entire of The Vampire Diaries ahead of the final episodes which I’m super excited about.


Things-wise I have been lusting after an iPad Pro for months now.. I am this close to biting the bullet and buying one.. and the pencil of course. I have been ‘slumming’ it with my original mini for about 6 years and had no desire to upgrade until the drawing features of the Pro came to light.. My teenage self couldn’t have been more excited, it’s basically technology I’ve been waiting for for 20 years. Aside from that hefty one I don’t have many material ‘wants’ right now but as mentioned further up I want to re-focus on work.. I also want to get outdoors more. I’m not an ‘outdoors’ person.. I’m more of a ‘close the curtains, the sun is shining on my laptop’ kind of person but I know I benefit from the fresh air. This time last year I listened to the audio book ‘Miracle Morning’ and for a spell getting up and out early really made a difference to my mood and productivity so I may give it another whirl.

and that’s it.. a pretty uneventful post-holiday week really but excited to make plans for the (hopefully) warmer weather to come and get OUTSIDE and enjoy it

    I hear what you’re saying about having a regular income from an office job. I’ve got an office job as well as two young children and although it’s not my dream career I can see the bonuses of having security. I’ve had redundancy threats and lots of changes too and find it annoying how people don’t realise how much of an impact these changes have on your life. I think it’s amazing how you carry on blogging etc alongside work. Do you find blogging helps balance out the stresses of work? Sorry for the long post!

    OMG I adore the final episodes of Vampire diaries – I don’t think you will be disappointed. Haven’t caught up with PLL yet but they were a bit slow in the first half of the season. I agree with Beauty and The Beast – I was expecting something epic!

    I want an ipad pro too! I use my ipad 3rd gen for school/ studying and the poor thing is on it’s last legs. Of course the old ipads aren’t made for writing so stylus I use has a tendency to go all over the place. The pro and the pen would be so useful but like you the money always holds me back, it’s just so much in one go!
