Five Things – Week 65

Five Things – Week 65

I had planned on doing a five things post last week but due to only being in my own flat for two nights, and in England for just two days of the whole week I decided against it as both trips – Belfast and Crete – will have their own posts on my blog anyway.

Five Things I Did This Week

  • On Monday I arrived home from my five day trip to Crete and it was actually really nice to be back home and getting back to reality.
  • Tuesday marked my six month anniversary with my other half and I can not believe how fast the time has gone. He was working a bit later than normal so I made sure I had all the dinner prepped so things were ready when he got home.
  • On Thursday evening I had a catch up meal with a couple of friends’ in London. We headed to Soho to brgr which I have been meaning to have dinner at for ages and it was nice to catch up on what they were both getting up to.
  • I spent the weekend staying at my other halves house as we were cat sitting for the weekend and we had a nice relaxing time including lots of movie watching – Oceans Eleven, 10 Things I Hate About You, Big Hero 6 and Blade Runner – and it was nice to relax and chill.
  • On Saturday evening I headed into London to see The Kooks on their Best Of tour at Alexandra Palace and it was an incredible show full of all of the songs I expected.

Five Six Great Things To Happen

  • On  Monday my boyfriends’ dad happened to be working close to Stanstead airport where I landed home from Crete and he said he would come and pick me up. I was so thankful for the lift as otherwise, I’d have had to navigate 2 hours on the trains with a suitcase or pay about £70 for a taxi. Neither nice options.
  • I’ve been starting to wake up earlier than I need to in order to be productive in the morning’s and make sure I have a proper breakfast and it seems to be working. I’ve felt more awake when I’ve gotten to work, I’ve eaten better and my to-do list gets smashed through before 9am.
  • I’ve been trying to get back into healthier eating and this week I lost 3 pounds which is great as I was pretty naughty the week before in Belfast and put about that much on. Now I’m back in the country and settling at home I want to get back into the routine of making healthier and smarter choices.
  • I have managed to organize catch up evenings with all of my friends who I feel I haven’t seen in ages from my music website buddies to my school friends and I can’t wait to properly catch up with everyone.
  • I had my press pass confirmed for Slamdunk Festival in Birmingham which is great so now it’s time to start prepping promo and working out whose covering what with my team.
  • It has been on my bucket list to go on a proper spa weekend for ages and finally I have one booked. Me and my best friend are heading to Oxford over a weekend in August for a full blown relaxing spa weekend and I can not wait.

Five Four Things Which Sucked

  • Due to my walk while I was in Crete my legs – mainly my calves – continued to be in quite a bit of pain during the week. Thankfully my foot’s pain eased over the week but my legs were killing.
  • On Wednesday my aqua aerobics class was canceled and I was gutted as it’s been two weeks since I was last at one. I did stay on at the gym instead but my aching calf meant I didn’t push myself as much.
  • I ordered a whole load of clothes hoping I’d have something to wear to a wedding I have coming up but everything either didn’t fit or wasn’t appropriate so I still don’t have an outfit and I’m stressing.
  • My nails are in an absolutely awful condition at the moment and I keep managing to break them which isn’t great. I am going to get them done professionally next weekend so hopefully they will last until the wedding I’m at the following weekend.

Five Things To Do Next Week

  • Get into my proper morning routine getting up at a decent time and allowing for a mixture of working out, tidying and blog work before work to free up my evenings more.
  • Come up with some ideas of dates and potential holiday spots for a weekend away over August/ September. A lot of my trips have been in the earlier part of the year so I want some more things to look forward to.
  • Book flights for my trip to Italy in November. We’re going to be flying with BA and I can’t deny that I’m so excited for no Easyjet/ Ryanair.
  • Start planning Slamdunk Festival at the end of May and working out my workload for interviews/ features but also what bands I want to see.
  • Try and see my tattoo artist so I can start working on the sketches of my next tattoo.
What have you been up to this week?

    Sounds like you had a good week, I’m trying to convince someone to come and pick us up from the airport so we don’t have to pay for a taxi when we come back from honeymoon! I think we’ll be so jetlagged from Asia we won’t be able to face the train journey or the drive ourselves!
    Jealous of your plans for italy, we went for the first time last year and I’m desperate to go back!
