Five Things – Week 32


Bank Holiday was such a well needed day of relaxtion before heading into September and although this week wasn’t as busy as usual I manged to have a great London day at the weekend.

Five Things I Did This Week

  • On Monday I had a very unlike me and had a lazy day. I didn’t set an alarm so woke up when I wanted and I stayed in my PJ’s all day. It was a pretty productive day and I got quite a lot done but also finished watching Jessica Jones, finally saw the new Jungle Book movie which was great and ordered pizza. What a great day.
  • On Friday evening I went to a lovely local pub and had a catch up dinner with some of my school friends
  • On Saturday I had a day in London which involved mac and cheese, shopping, burgers, a Harry Potter exhibition and a show. It was such a nice day.
  • Sunday morning I created a homemade afternoon tea for my best friend and we ate food and watched a movie. Definitely felt a bit stuffed afterwards.
  • On sunday evening I took my mum out for dinner to have a little catch up as it feels like I haven’t seen her properly in ages.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • I had my fourth session of laser hair removal on my underarms and bikini area and I am really pleased with the results. I am having to shave much less regularly and hopefully by session 6 it will be even better.
  • I finally got round to seeing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the theatre and it was magical and so well done. I am so glad I have seen it before it shuts next year.
  • On Saturday evening one of my school friends got married over in Philadelphia and the wedding was live streamed from the wedding so it was so nice to feel like we were involved even though we weren’t there.
  • It might not have been much but I lost a pound this week when I went to get weighed. It’s going to be a hard slog but I am determinded to lose some weight before I go away next Easter.
  • I booked tickets to see Biffy Clyro and Brand New in London and I am so excited.

Five Things Which Sucked

  • The skirt which I bought in H&M doesn’t fit and they don’t do a bigger size 🙁 I hate how I can range so much in clothes sizes just down to the shop or item design.
  • I asked around a whole load of people and no one would come and see Bad Mom’s with me, boo. Definitely need to try and see it next week.
  • Tickets for Red Hot Chili Peppers and Babymetal sold out straight away and I am gutted as I want to see the Chili Peppers again after they were so good at Rock Im Park.
  • I bought a full length mirror with cabinet but the instructions were so unclear that I couldn’t put it together on my own. I hate having to ask my dad to put things together.
  • I bought some macaroons in London on Saturday for the afternoon tea on Sunday but they all got squished on the way home. I was so sad 🙁

Five Things To Do Next Week

  • Pack for my trip to Budapest on Saturday. I head out for three days so need to get everything sorted.
  • Do the first part of my online PADI training ready for getting my Scuba Diving qualification.
  • Try and get my tattoo booked in after getting cancelled on previously 🙁
  • Clear out my bedroom as it is a pretty big mess at the moment with clothes and rubbish everywhere.
  • Watch How To Be Single. I bought the DVD as I didn’t get round to seeing it the cinema and I can’t wait to watch it.
What have you been up to this week?

    Ugh don’t even remind me about the RHCP tickets -gutted. Laser Hair Removal, definitely limits the shaving, I had 6 sessions I believe or was it 5 and then within a few months the hair started growing back at it’s normal rate, I do have an at home machine now though. Congrats on the 1lb lost, a loss is a loss x

    I was dying to see RHCP, I am gutted! The one band I have never seen. I am tempted to get laser hair removal, as bending over to do my legs is causing pain, so convenient!

    I bet the homemade afternoon tea was lovely. I love to make them to but it’s rare which is a shame.

    I always find a day of not setting up an alarm and watch the movies and read books all day. Just a rewarding feeling. 🙂

    Sound like an awesome week. Is Jessica Jones worth watching? I only would want to watch it for David Tennet. xx

    Jessica Jones was so good. I’m not a big tenant fan but enjoyed him in it!
    We went to see Charlie and the chocolate factory when it was still in previews so would love to go back and see if it’s changed at all.

    We loved Charlie and the chocolate factory when we saw it. Fab production! What was the HP event? I’m such a HP fan! Also laser just connotes to get better and better. I think I’m on treatment 5 or 6, and I rarely shave these days. What does come through is so fine you really can’t see it anyway!

    I love the fact you do this! I totally should vent out my woes… Not to be negative but to just get my weekly upsets off my chest.

    I wanted to see Bad Moms too but no one would come with me either! I also love that your friend live streamed her wedding, it’s such a lovely way to share the day with people who can’t be there xx
