On Tuesday I went round my other halves house to have dinner and it was nice to see his parents again as I had only briefly met them back in January.
On Wednesday I went to the Olympia for Marketing Week Live which was good fun and due to being out of the office this was followed by a cheeky shopping trip down Oxford Street including a few Lush products, a gorgeous leather jacket from Forever 21 and some unplanned beauty items from Selfridges.
Wednesday evening I headed to the Royal Albert Hall to see Russell Howard who was incredible. I don’t think I’ve laughed that much at a comedy show in a long time and it really made me feel happier about life.
On Thursday I went along to Renault to pay for and collect my brand new car. I could not be happier with it and I am so glad I took the plunge to buy exactly what I wanted. It might have been expensive but I know it’s going to last me for a long time.
On Friday I went into London for a birthday meal at Steak & Co with my other half and his parents. Last time the pair of us went here the meal was great and this was no different.
Over the weekend I took my other half to Paristo celebrate his birthday and it was a really nice weekend. We climbed Notre Dame, explored the Louvre, had some nice food, relaxed on a river cruise and had a great weekend.
Five Great Things To Happen
My old car got completely cleared out on Monday which meant it made a trip to my parents for my dad to clean/ sort the car out before selling. Aren’t family the best?!
I put my old TV up on Gumtree and then found both of my Tom Tom’s which have also gone up, I’m super happy as it means I could get a decent chunk of money to put towards a good day out or trip.
I booked tickets to see a show called Wonderland in the summer which is based on the story of Alice when she’s older, I also booked some tickets for a special event I’m going to take my other half too (keeping quiet in case he reads this) and Ricky Gervais who announced some extra London shows.
My passes for Lower Than Atlantis on Friday have been approved. I haven’t seen the band for what feels like forever so I can’t wait to catch them slay Brixton Academy.
After months of trying me and my friend finally booked ourselves in for a Shoreditch Art Tour. She has had a voucher for us since her birthday last April but finally we have a day.
Five Things Which Sucked
Due to not having a huge amount of time in this week I ended up being awake until 1.30am on Wednesday evening just to do a bit of tidying and to make my flat liveable.
My dishwasher seems to have started leaking due to it moving in the cupboard space where it is housed in the kitchen which is a pain as it means more work for my dad to do to try and fix it.
I had an issue with one of my credit cards’ while paying for my car which meant I had to do some moving around of money to sort things out and it ended up taking a bit longer than I expected it would.
I saw a beautiful pair of boots in Office on the sale but they didn’t have my size. I went to check online but they were full price, it just wasn’t meant to be.
My other half had a sore throat on Saturday morning so naturally by Sunday morning so did I. Thankfully it seems to be easing but it’s still not 100% yet.
Five Things To Do Next Week
Make a start on clearing out my wardrobe as I pretty much can’t get anything in or out at the moment.
Do some baking this week. I’m thinking brownies.
See if I can organize and book a trip to see Beauty and the Beast at the cinema next week. The movie looks great and it will be a nice catch up with some of my friends.
Explore something new in London before my comedy show next Saturday evening.
Have a relaxing evening this week to have a soak in the bath, pop on a face mask and watch a silly movie.
