On Tuesday I had a little catch up with my friend at a new Turkish restaurant which has opened and the food was really good with just the perfect things I love including Halloumi and Chicken.
On Thursday I headed to my Nan’s house for a catch-up dinner and it was nice to see both her and my auntie as I don’t see them as much as I’d like. I get a lot of my post delivered there as they’re always in so it was a bit like Christmas picking up my packages.
On Friday me and my other half headed to Milton Keynes to their IFly centre to do indoor skydiving. I’d been once before – although this didn’t help my performance – and we had such a fun evening. My other half was so much better than me but it was definitely something I’d love to do again.
Saturday was the day of the Spirit of Tiki event in Regent’s Park. The weather was a bit hit and miss but the event was a lot of fun where we got to try out some rum (and gin) based cocktails and just enjoy being out in London.
For me Sunday was my indoor day which included plenty of sorting out/ cleaning, watching the first two episodes of Firefly, doing some cooking and generally chilling.
Five Great Things To Happen
I’ve had some productive meetings at work and some busy times and I know I’m going to be having my appraisal soon so this is when I want to ask for a pay rise as I am doing a lot more work since I took over my manager’s responsibilities.
I’ve managed to completely unpack from the wedding and do some general tidying up of my flat which was good.
I finally got around to sorting out my media kit and employed the help of a wonderful girl I spoke to through Twitter. I am so glad that I have this as I feel it will help me more when approaching new brand’s that I want to work with.
I ordered the artificial grass for my balcony and it’s due to arrive any day now. I will be taking some before and after shots of the work I am doing on my balcony so you’ll all be able to see how it’s changed.
I managed to clear out the massive cupboard in my hallway and I feel like the whole flat is just so much more together and organized now.
Five Things Which Sucked
Due to leaving the wedding at 1am on Monday morning I was absolutely exhausted at work on Monday and it took me a few days to get back to normal.
The exhaustion seemed to flow further down the week as I struggled to wake up early any morning so had a slightly less productive week than I would have liked.
I ordered a new light through B&Q online but the order was canceled so I went to the store to buy it as online it said there were 20+ available but they were wrapped away right at the top of a shelving unit which meant I couldn’t buy it until they’d brought them down out of hours. It’s going to mean another trip there which is a pain.
I got a heat rash on my hand over the weekend at the wedding and it still hasn’t completely gone away, it’s so annoying as I want to itch it but I know I shouldn’t.
We attempted to make KFC style chicken on Sunday and followed a recipe exactly but the chicken just wouldn’t cook through, it got so bad that we had to throw it all away which was such a waste.
Five Things To Do Next Week

Treat myself to a nice lunch when I’m in London on Tuesday at a work meeting. There are few times when I managed a lunchtime in London so I want to take advantage of it
