Five Seven Things I Did This Week

  • On Monday I had a lovely date night in which consisted of being cooked for which doesn’t happen very often and a Christmas double bill of Lethal Weapon and The Holiday.
  • On Tuesday I managed to get last minute tickets to see Red Hot Chili Peppers at the O2 Arena so I headed there to see the band and they were great. I always love seeing them.
  • On Wednesday I finally got back to aqua aerobics and then went for a catch-up dinner with my nan afterwards. I have been so bad over the past few weeks of not having time to spend properly with her so it was nice to relax for a bit.
  • On Thursday I headed back to the O2 Arena to see Brand New and Biffy Clyro play and it was such a great show. Biffy are always fantastic and this was nothing short of phenominal.
  • On Friday I went to Bletchley to see one of my old school friends and her two son’s who are absolutely adorable. I was completely knackered when I left after six hours of hanging with two under 3 year old’s but it was lovely to see them.
  • On Saturday I went into London and had a lovely dinner at Dirty Bones in Shoreditch with my friends followed by a show at Brixton Academy by Bullet For My Valentine. The show saw them play their debut album in full and it was such a nostalgic amazing evening.
  • On Sunday I had the first of my Christmas meals with my school friends at a lovely local pub where the food was so scrummy. We exchanged our secret santa presents and I got some lovely gifts.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • I sent out my blogger Secret Santa’s last week and I saw one of the girls I sent to had received hers and posted out on social media how much she loved it. As soon as I saw her post it made me super happy :)
  • I wrapped a really good proportion of my Christmas presents so I feel I have made a proper dent on my collection, although my spare room is starting to resemble Santa’s Grotto.
  • My HUGE Bath and Bodyworks order I made from the US arrived and I am in love with everything I ordered. Shipping to the UK cost me an absolute fortune but I saved so much during their black Friday sale that it was worth it.
  • I had another successful week of movie watching and have now seen Lethal Weapon, Sin City and Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. I am slowly making a good dent in my list.
  • I managed to have a lovely lazy evening in on Sunday evening after there were some train issues for me preventing me from going to Birmingham. I definitely think the evening in was much needed.

Five Things Which Sucked 

  • I looked at the setlist for Chili Peppers from their Monday show and then was disappointed when the night I went was different as they played four of my favourite tracks Monday but I didn’t get to see them as our night was newer/ quirkier material.
  • I received an item for a gift guide and it was totally smashed up which sucks as I hate brands to have gone to the trouble of sending something but for it not to be useable.
  • My Christmas tree fell over and I ended up smashing one of my beautiful skull tree ornaments which makes me very sad.
  • I am starting to get a little worried about a Christmas present I ordered which still hasn’t turned up. It was sent through Parcel Force who I hate as they’re so unreliable and it’s making me anxious.
  • I watched Elf this week and I was a little disappointed with it. Everyone raves that it’s one of the best Christmas movies and I just don’t get it.

Five Things To Do Next Week

  • Book something for a special date night next Friday as a pre-Christmas treat
  • Finish wrapping my Christmas presents.
  • Get my Beartooth and Bullet reviews done asap so I can get them live and not get behind as we approach Christmas
  • Have a lovely night out with the girls next weekend but don’t drink too much as I am done with hangovers
  • Try and work out a night I can have a catch-up dinner with my best friend before Christmas.

    Love this kind of post. I watched The Holiday too – can’t beat a bit of Christmas cheese can you?!

  • That Bath and Body Works haul is AMAZING! I love everything they make, I swear.

  • La French Connection

    I hear about Biffy Clyro more and more, although I’ve never listened to their music. I have the feeling they’re going to become very big very soon.

  • Wow you’ve seen SO many bands this week, very jealous of Biffy and RHCP! Your Bath & Bodyworks haul looks amazing too, eyeying up that Gingerbread Latte showergel! x

  • I always love reading your 5 things posts! Duper envious you saw RHCP, I would love to see them live. I’ve never seen Elf mainly as I don’t like Will Ferrell very much. All my friends rave over it though

  • oh no elf! i guess not everyone will like it. with the tree falling over, it’s not a good start to the christmas spirit

  • It sounds like you had a really interesting week and got to do a lot of cool things! I need to get on with my Christmas wrapping xx

  • Aw thats rubbish about the change of set list, I always thought bands stuck to the same set list every show!

  • Busy days especially with the coming of the holidays. I hope your parcel has arrived and you don’t nwed to worry about it any more.

  • I also went to Dirty Bones this week and the food was AMAZING! I even took a takeaway box away with me xD

  • I love bloggers secret santas. They’re always so much fun!

  • Oh my gosh I can’t believe you got ticks for RHC. I’m so jealous. My boss went and took loads of videos – the lights looked amazing!

  • fashion-mommy

    The Chilli Peppers was disappointing, especially to get last minute tickets and then change the set list at the last minute.

  • Your so organised having everything planned for next week, I am a total scatter brain! I completely forgot about blogger secret santa too! I’ll need to remember to do this next year :)
