On Monday we went out for a family meal to celebrate my Auntie’s Birthday and despite my dad and brother not being there due to a Chelsea match they went to it was lovely to catch up.
Tuesday saw me have a double meal out with a massive Five Guys lunch with work followed by a Wagamama’s catch up dinner with two of my school friends. It felt like I hadn’t seen my friends in ages so we caught up about our holidays and what we’ve all been up to.
On Wednesday evening I headed into London to see Bill Bailey at a small Leicester Square theatre practicing material for his upcoming tour. It was a really fun hour or so of material and it’s definitely made me want to buy tickets for his tour.
On Friday night we made a trip to Ikea where I finally got around to getting a new wardrobe for my bedroom including all the fittings and interiors and a new shelving unit for my bedroom. I get so excited in Ikea and I tried not to go too crazy but I did end up spending a bit more than I imagined I would.
On Saturday it was another shopping fuelled day as I met my other half in Westfield White City after he finished work and we did some more shopping, and then after he headed home I met my friend in Harrow to go and see Russell Kane who was very funny.
On Sunday I headed with my friends to Ealing Road to buy some bits for our outfits for my friends’ wedding in July. The place is just a whole other world but the clothing was so beautiful.
Five Great Things To Happen
I booked my tickets for the London Film and TV Convention at the end of July including a photo with Christopher Lloyd and the Deloran. I am so excited as I’ve never been to an expo or anything before so it will be a great experience.
Me and my other half booked a lovely hotel in Bournemouth as we’re planning on having a nice weekend away in July. I am very much the type of person who likes to book stuff there and then so I’m happy this has been done now.
I didn’t quite know where to put this but on Monday my manager who had been working from home for quite a few months’ left without notice meaning I’ve now temporarily stepped into his shoes. It’s pretty scary as I didn’t have a huge amount to do with the PPC side of the business that I am taking over but it’s a brand new challenge and something I’m keen to prove myself in.
I’ve managed to have a few clear outs tidies including sorting out my overflowing bookcase and getting rid of some bedding. I had about seven different sets of bedding which I really don’t need so it was time for a clear out.
On Sunday my other half put up all my Ikea furniture and I absolutely love it all. My flat is starting to go back to normal after loads of clearing out, including three more bags of things ready for a car boot sale.
Five Things Which Sucked
I put on a pound this week which, to be honest was completely deserved, and I should have put on more but it does suck that I’m still not in a proper routine with self-control and eating well.
Me and my friends use Doodle Polls to decide when we’re meeting up/ going out for meals etc but sadly a meet up organized for the end of June I can’t make which is a shame.
I’ve put a few items on Gumtree and had interest with people saying they’d come and collect and just not turning up and not letting me know. I find it so rude when people can’t even be bothered to message to say they’re no longer interested.
I still haven’t booked my flights for Italy later this year, I need to re-look into hotels and just get it booked so it becomes more of a reality.
While I was clearing out my wardrobe I did end up having to get rid of a lot of things which I’d love to fit back into but realistically I know I’ll never lose that much weight again.
Five Things To Do Next Week
Sort out everything I’ll need for my weekend away at Slamdunk Festival and at my friends’ wedding.
Go to the gym at least once in the morning before work. I’m not going to push myself too much but I do need to start going more.
Lose anything when I weigh myself. I literally don’t mind if it’s half a pound but anything in the right direction.
Sort out the spare carpet I have in my wardrobe and get rid of what I don’t need to make room for storage.
Pick up train tickets for all the UK trips I have over the next few weeks.
