Five Things – Week 20

Five Things – Week 20

This week has been a bit of a mixed week of exciting times heading to Germany to a festival I’ve never been to but it was by far the most stressful few days of my life with travelling and expenses. I’m glad I went but I don’t think I’ll be heading to that one again.

Five Things I Did This Week

  • On Monday evening when I returned from Birmingham I had a lovely Mexican dinner with my friend which consisted of loads of Nachos and Quesadillas which are the best!
  • I went to see Alice Through The Looking Glass and I am going to be honest, I was a little disappointed in it. You can tell that Tim Burton didn’t direct it and only produced it as the film had a different tone, and the characters just didn’t seem as vivid as in the first movie. I am glad I saw it and it had some good bits but overall an average movie.
  • On Tuesday I had my second treatment of laser hair removal and I’m so happy to see the progress that I am getting from it.
  • On Wednesday I managed to get my implant changed, although I did have to wait for over 2 hours at the walk in clinic for it.
  • On Thursday morning I headed over to Germany for Rock Im Park and I saw a few of my favourite bands there including Bring Me The Horizon, Biffy Clyro, Billy Talent and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Although there were a lot more negatives than positives from the festival.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • Although I knew I was going I had my Download Festival passes 100% confirmed which was a relief.
  • I had a few days off work which was really nice and despite being at a festival I actually managed to have a good lie in most days and relax a bit.
  • I got to see my friend at the festival after she moved to Germany last month and it was lovely to catch up and see how her life is now shes’ in Germany.
  • I managed to read a whole book while I was away and it was one I had been putting off for ages which was good.
  • I applied for a totally awesome job last week so fingers crossed I hear something from it this week when the deadline closes.

Five Things Which Sucked

  • Even five days after I had it done my arm is still really bruised and sore from having my implant changed and it’s such a pain.
  • I really hurt my neck last Tuesday and the pain still hasn’t gone. It is starting to make sleeping quite uncomfortable.
  • Pretty much everything which sucked about the week happened in Germany including the fact that I spent so much money due to booking the wrong trains, wasting so much money on taxi’s etc. It was silly how much the weekend ended up costing me.
  • I could not be bothered with a 2-hour train then a 2-hour coach back to Frankfurt so I just paid for another flight home from Nuremberg but it was 2 hours delayed and was just such a palava.
  • Me being the complete muppet that I am forgot to note down where I parked at Stanstead airport and spent a whole hour walking up and down lane after lane of cars looking for mine. Complete fail and I did call my dad in tears more than once.

Five Things Β To Do Next Week

  • Re-pack everything ready to go to Download on Friday morning
  • Go to the gym at least twice this week and try to get back into my routine
  • Eat really well between my festivals as I am sure I have eaten so much crap over the past few weeks
  • Plan what I am going to do for my dad for fathers’ day. I really want to spoil him but I just need to think of the perfect thing to do
  • Catch up with my family properly as it feels like I haven’t seen them in a complete age
What have you been up to this week?

    I am so jealous that you got to see RHCP! I have always wanted to see them live.

    What a busy week! Annoying about your nightmare in Germany, travelling can have a way of backfiring like that sometimes; I’m sure Download Festival will be much better.

    Good luck and I hope you get the job you applied for. Sounds like a terrible time getting to the festival in Germany although I do hope it was worth it and you had a great time when you got there.

    Such a great list. Cant wait to see Alice through the looking glass myself. Sorry to hear about your neck.

  7. June 8, 2016 / 3:56 pm

    I’ve hurt my neck a few times and it is so painful isn’t it! Takes a good few days or week or so to get rid of.

  8. June 8, 2016 / 9:39 pm

    Hope you enjoy download festival! It’ll be an incredible weekend

  9. June 8, 2016 / 11:13 pm

    Oh no you have just reminded me I need to take out my implant as well! Sorry to hear about your arm but Download Festival sounds good x

    Can’t believe you went on a short trip to Germany this week! Too bad it sounds like you didn’t have the best time! Hopefully you’ll enjoy download!

    Good to know the laser hair removal treatment is going well. Enjoy Germany.

    Interesting to hear your mini review of ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’. It’s so sad that Germany was not the trip it could have been. It completely sucks when you’re trying to stick to a budget and circumstances beyond your control takes you way over. Sounds like a bit of a nightmare. I hope the neck pain goes quickly.
    It can be so tough trying to come up with things for Father’s day, my Dad is so difficult to buy for!

    I can totally relate to your parking nightmare – I’m always convinced I will remember where I’ve parked, but it’s never the case! Hope you enjoy Download! πŸ™‚

    I really want to see Alice through the looking glass but I think I will be disappointed with the lack of Tim Burton Influence x

  15. June 9, 2016 / 10:48 am

    i saw the trailer for alice and wasn’t really wowed. oh no, sad to hear that germany sucked πŸ™

    It sounds like you’ve had such a varied week. It’s a shame Alice Through the Looking Glass was a disappointment. To be honest, none of the Alice in Wonderland films compared to the original.

    Fingers crossed for you in regards to the job!

  18. June 9, 2016 / 3:21 pm

    What a shame that Germany wasn’t as fun but I am sure catching up with your friend made it worth it

  19. June 9, 2016 / 6:25 pm

    I actually appreciate your review of Through the Looking Glass. You sort of confirmed my suspicions about it.

    Oh what a faff you had with travel – that’s the sort of thing that happens to me! Kaz x

    I love Mexican food too, I’m so jealous I’ve not had that in ages. I want to go and see the new Alice film, shame you didn’t think it was that good.

  22. June 9, 2016 / 9:27 pm

    Oh no to the car park! That is just the thing I would do – and I would cry too!

    Sorry for what happened with you in germany. Were you at least had a chance to see Nuremberg? It’s a wonderful city.

    Aw I’m so pleased you’ve got your Download Festival tickets confirmed– now the countdown is on! xxx

  25. June 10, 2016 / 6:32 pm

    There is always some ups and downs during out week but I always try to make the best of things. Sorry the trip to Germany was not what you expected it to be. At least you got to see your friend.

  26. June 12, 2016 / 6:32 pm

    I had Alice on the list of films to go and see, I think I might just wait until we can stream it as it sounds as it is a bit of a waste of the cinema ticket.

  27. June 13, 2016 / 10:08 am

    Sounds like you had a good time in Germany, even though coming home sounds like it was a bit of a pain. I have my fingers crossed for the job you applied for. Good luck!

  28. June 13, 2016 / 10:14 am

    Your Mexican meal sounds really lovely. I’m a massive Mexican food fan.

    I absolutely love tacos! I definitely wouldn’t go and see the new Alice film for the same reasons as you mentioned: anyone trying to emulate Tim Burton would only set themselves to fail, wouldn’t they?
