Hello! I am writing this on the sofa in my pjs, having just had a long soak in the bath and a very lazy day nursing a completely self-induced hangover…I never learn! This week has felt exhausting. It is so warm at night at the moment that I am finding it really hard to sleep and keep coming home from work and nodding off on the sofa meaning I am wide awake for the rest of the evening. It’s a silly pattern to have gotten into so next week I am all about getting a good night’s sleep and laying off the booze for a while!
This week I have been…
Making: an effort to straighten my hair…it just takes so long!
Going: on an excellent staff night out in Bath with my colleagues (and paying for it today)
Wearing: this gorgeous two-tone metallic shade on my nails
Eating: meringues with fresh strawberries
Drinking: far too much this week!
Reading: I’m just about to start Girl on the Train
Watching: the new series of True Detective. We loved the last one and this one seems pretty good so far
Buying: teabags as we had that scenario that every British person dreads where we ran out this week!
Planning: on always having a plentiful supply of teabags (see above!)
Cooking: these ribs from Waitrose – pretty good for a midweek dinner
Baking: bread with my class
Writing: and filling out our ESTA application forms so we can travel to the States this summer (4 weeks to go!)
Favouriting: James Cordon’s Carpool Karaoke videos – hilarious
Working on: a big shoe and handbag cull – I’m being ruthless
Trying to decide: whether to buy a spiralizer
Wishing: Ian gets better soon as he is really grumpy when he’s ill!
Enjoying: fresh berries
Needing: a healthy and alcohol-free week
Feeling: sad that I had to throw my favourite pair of jeans away as I had worn them to death…they are the Rock Stars from Old Navy in America and I am hoping I can repurchase them when we go
Giggling at: the late night living room dance party I had mid-week with my bestie Lu who may or may not have slipped over whilst dancing to Iggy Azalea!
