On Tuesday evening I had an evening with my mum and we grabbed dinner and then went to the cinema to see Bridget Jones. I know she doesn’t get to go to the cinema much as she doesn’t drive and her and my dad don’t have similar movie tastes but I knew she had to see this one.
On Friday evening I went to my first live show of Octover and saw Of Mice and Men play at Camden’s Kentish Town and it was such a good show. I managed to catch up with a few friends and see some great music, it was an awesome evening.
Saturday was a day out in London with my parents which I organised and saw us begin at the Befeater Gin Distillery in Kennington. I’ve become somewhat of a gin drinker and my dad loves it too so it was a great start to the day which carried on with a trip to the museum of childhood, a ride on the London Eye and cocktails.
On Saturday evening we discovered a great seafood restaurant in the heart of Camdens’ Stables Market called Seawise, and I have to say it was the best seafood I think I’ve ever had, the salmon was incredible.
On Sunday I finally got round to see Miss Periguines School for Perculiar Children and it was such a great movie and so typically Tim Burton.
Five Great Things To Happen
In two words Luke Cage! I’ve watched the whole season now and I have to admit I absolutely love it and I’ve got into it much more than I did with Jessica Jones. I can not wait to find out what Marvel and Netflix do next.
I bought the Yankee Candle Advent Calendar as there was a great deal on Groupon. I had been debating this one for December but the saving made me hit buy quicker than anything.
I recieved my package from MyMallBoxwhich was a mail forwarding service I tried to get some US products. I am so happy with what I bought so keep an eye out for a post coming on it next week.
My flat is finally clean, tidy and organised exactly how I wanted it to be after a few weeks of clear outs and things.
I got around to tackling clearing out my wardrobes which was a huge task – shamefully I have three triple ones (yes three) – and it was nice to clear out some stuff for car boot sales so I can get into them properly.
Five Things Which Sucked
On Wednesday we had some bad news finding out that my dad had been made redundant from his role at Trinity Mirror after 24 years’ so this week has been a bit worrying for us all as my dad was the main breadwinner at home.
Due to the bad news this week me and my mum didn’t make it to the gym much this week so I am a little behind (although it was probably a much needed break after a tough few physical challenges recently).
One of my friends seems to be going through a bit of a tough time at the moment and I hate feeling like there’s little I can do to make things better for her.
I really wish I had been able to queue up on Saturday to meet Kat Von D at Debenhams as I think she’s such an amazing person and an inspiration but I didn’t want to cancel my plans for the day.
I stayed the same weight at slimming world this week. Usually I wouldn’t be unhappy about this but I have been trying really hard as I’d like to lose a stone before Christmas.
Five Things To Do Next Week
Complete my PADI training so I can ready for my intensive indoor dive session.
Have a solo London date day on Saturday. Every so often I love to pop into London on my own to explore places I’ve been meaning to go to and eat at places I’ve had on my bucket lists.
Buy my Christmas cards. I know it’s only October but I always like to be super duper prepared.
Starting prepping and planning my Christmas gift guides so they can start launching next week.
Finish season one of Daredevil. I took a break to watch Luke Cage but I need to get back into it.
