On Monday I went out for a meal with my dad as every year I take out my mum, dad and nan for Christmas meals so it was the turn of my dad and we went to Bill’s where I indulged in all the cheese including crumbled halloumi and mac and cheese.
On Tuesday I had my works’ department meal out to a local buffet restaurant and I definitely ate way too much including two plates of deserts *oops*. We ended the meal with our annual Penguin racing competition using wind-up penguins from special Christmas crackers. Sadly I didn’t win.
On Thursday evening I went to the Odeon to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and it was incredible, so much so I think I prefered it to Force Awakens and I loved that a lot. I won’t reveal anything but it’s definitely worth a watch.
On Friday I had a nice lazy evening in and watched a new Netflix movie: Spectral and had a naughty KFC dinner. After a manic week it was much needed.
On Saturday I headed into London to Junkyard Golffor some friends’ birthdays’ where we played indoor golf in a bar and it was so much fun.
On Sunday I was taken for a day trip out to Winchester Christmas Market which made me feel super Christmassy and it was a nice change of scenery from home/ London.
Five Great Things To Happen
I finished watching Season 2 of Black Mirror and the final episode was so clever. I’m really into how messed up these episodes are but also how interesting every element of them are.
I finished wrapping all of my Christmas presents which has made me feel so much better about the next week or so because I am far less stressed. Now I know I need to have a tidy of my flat but I think I’ll wait and do it between Christmas and New Year.
Me and a friend booked flights to Amsterdam to spend a long weekend there in February and I am so excited to actually get to explore the city. I’m also going with my friend to see The Weeknd when we’re there which should be fun.
My nails have been properly re-done and I’m so happy with how they look as they’re purple and super glittery. It’s crazy how something as little as your nails can affect how you feel.
I booked tickets to see the amazing Hans Zimmer play at Wembley. I have been wanting to see him perform for ages as I love his scores and he’s done so many great movie soundtracks and I am super excited to be able to see him.
Five Four Things Which Sucked
I am still waiting on three items from Parcel Force who are messing me around with deliveries. I hate how inflexible their system seems to be and it’s stressing me out as one is a Christmas present.
I had a little bit of an insecure breakdown last week resulting in a few tears and feeling pretty crappy but after talking out the situation I felt so much better.
I’ve been feeling a bit ill at the later end of this week (lady things- eurgh) but the upside is I’d rather feel a bit crappy now than this time next week.
I couldn’t make my hair cut this week so i’t’s now not until Thursday and I’m getting to the point where my fringe is so long it parts and when it doesn’t I can’t see all that well. I can’t wait to get it chopped.
Five Things To Do Next Week
My Christmas baking. I always make a lot of the deserts for Christmas so I am planning on doing these on either the 23rd or Christmas eve
Watch Nightmare before Christmas. I always watch this movie at both Halloween and Christmas (and usually loads in between) so I need to watch it this week.
Try not to spend too much money on the New Look sales which tend to start on Christmas eve.
Have a nice break over the Christmas period. I’ll be taking some time out from blogging to just relax and enjoy spending time with those who mean a lot to me.
Plan a London day out for Monday 2nd January just before I head back to work.
