This week has been a little more laid back than normal but the weekend saw a trip to Birmingham and lots of family time for Mothers’ Day which was lovely.

5 Things I Did This Week

  • On Tuesday evening I had a good walk with my friend and we managed to clear our normal walk in a quicker time than we normally we do in which was great.
  • On Friday night my mum re-dyed my hair so finally I am a bright red head again. I have so missed it!
  • On Saturday I headed into Birmingham for cocktails (and lots of them) for my friends birthday and we then headed to see Sleeping with Sirens. I was feeling a little bit tender the next day (oops)
  • Sunday was Mothers’ Day and I had a lovely day with my family going out for a meal, having a few drinks and generally having a nice catch up and spoiling my mum rotten!
  • I booked tickets to see School of Rock when I am in New York because I had some money come through and I want to book as much as I can before I head over.

5 Great Things To Happen

  • I watched the first movie on my March Cult Movie List which was Clerks. The film was funny in parts but other than that it wasn’t a great movie.
  • I found all the latest episodes of Season 9 of The Big Bang Theory so I am completely caught up and I am so excited to see what happens next.
  • As it was St Davids Day on Tuesday daffodils were everywhere and I love Daffodils. Currently my flat is full of pots of them and I hope they last for ages.
  • I had my passes confirmed for Against The Current later this month and I am so excited to finally get a chance to see them live after missing their headline show last year and their support slot with All Time Low last month.
  • Bring Me The Horizon got announced to play Glastonbury Festival and I am beyond ectastic. I had known about this for a few weeks but it seems to be properly out there now and it’s great that it’s a show I had tickets to before they got announced. Plus they’re headlining the other stage on Sunday evening so it will be the best way to end my festival.

5 Things Which Sucked

  • I was meant to be going out for food and catching up with a friend last Monday but sadly he had to work so we’ve had to reschedule.
  • Although it was nowhere near as bad as last week I did not stick to my spending ban and have made more orders. I think I genuinely need to see if I can even go one week without buying anything other than food.
  • Annoyingly I put on 2.5lbs at Slimming World this week and I know exactly why after some naughty meals out, oops. I am going to push myself to go back to basics again this week and lose at least the weight I have put on.
  • After a crazy week my flat is getting a little messy again which sucks as it means I’ll have to do a mass clean up again and I hate cleaning!
  • My nails are well overdue being re-done and my thumb nail has split slightly so I have to be so careful this week to make sure it doesn’t break.

5 Things I Need To Do Next Week

  • Make it to the gym at least once in the morning because I’ve been so bad at getting up I just keep hitting the snooze button.
  • Be super good with my eating so that I lose weight at Slimming World this week. I’ll be back to basics and recording everything I eat so I can get back on track again.
  • Watch another movie from my to watch list, I am thinking it’s time I saw Pulp Fiction!
  • Get my April trip to Paris properly booked and planned.
  • Get my head stuck into the world of graphic novels and finish Civil War. I want to head to Forbidden Planet but I want to read what I’ve got so far so I know the direct of what I want to read.

  • It looks like you had a fair balance of good and some not so good . It's great to be organised and pre plan, good idea making lists.

  • I'm the same with the gym! If I don't go in the morning I never end up going.

  • ah school of rock will be awesome! and i hope you have remade plans with your friend!

  • I love The Big Bang Theory! School of rock in NYC sounds amazing! I am going to start a zumba class this friday morning as I am rubbish with keeping up evening exercise!

  • Cocktails in Birmingham sounds fab! And so does school of rock, which I'm sure will be amazing! Sounds like you've had a fairly good week, I hope you manage to reschedule with your friend soon :) xx

  • Yes book that trip to Paris asap! 😀 I love it when I redye my hair – I feel all brand new again!

  • Wow what a week! I hope you manage to get everything you need to do done this week. Love your Pumpkin King pop 😉 x

  • So many highlights this week. Can I be cheeky and ask what hair dye you use? I've been using Schwarzkopf Live XXL but I find that the red fades really fast.

  • You've had a really cool week, I'm quite envious. My major achievement this week was that I was interviewed on the radio two days in a row, and I wore bright red lipstick both times which I'm sure makes a difference to the listeners!

  • I have the exact same morning routine – set my alarm early so I can get up and attack the day…. then end up pushing snooze and running late instead… 😉 x

  • Love this post idea, may have to take the idea on board with my blog, if you don't mind that is :)

  • Blimey, how on earth do you find all the time to fit all of that in during a week? x

  • I like this post. It's always so interesting. Sorry you gained some weight. That sucks. Paris will be fabulous! I hope you enjoy it! Angela

  • I swear my house always seems messy! I will do all the housework and by the next morning it manages to look a tip! I have no idea how it keeps happening (she says whilst looking at her toddler and 2 dogs) LOL
