Five Things – Week 89

Five Things I Did This Week

  • On Tuesday I headed to see Thor: Ragnarok and it was absolutely everything I wanted it to be and more. Definitely the best Thor movie and probably one of my favourite Marvel movies in general. I urge everyone to go and see it.
  • Thursday evening saw me, my other half and two friends head to Milton Keynes to the Snozone to have a beginners ski lesson and although certain elements were a bit tough I had such a fun night.
  • On Saturday I headed to my very first Comic-Con and it was such a fun day. I dressed up as Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas and the day was full of exploring, watching other Cosplayers and buying loads of stuff.
  • To start our Sunday off I took my other half to his first afternoon tea at the Hilton Park Lane as they were having a chocoholics Halloween themed tea. Everything was so yummy and it was just as good as I remembered last time. After that we headed to the Royal Albert Hall to watch the matinee performance of Symphonic Star Wars where the Philharmonic Orchestra played a whole load of Star Wars songs and it was incredible.
  • After my boyfriend went home I spent the evening having a catch-up meal with some friends and heading to the Boston Music Rooms to see Bad Omens who were really good.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • I have now made great improvements in my Christmas present situation and I am hoping to get some wrapped soon to help save any stress closer to Christmas.
  • I got some really good deals on Very with a spend £100 and get £50 back voucher so I managed to grab a few pairs of jeans and some dumbells to use during my home work out for a great price.
  • At Comic-Con I bought a mystery Funko Pop box and got both Daredevil and Barb pops and I was so happy. There’s always a worry about these mystery boxes that you’ll get rubbish but I am so happy with mine.
  • I have pretty much finished packing for holiday now other than my last minute things like chargers and makeup. It means this week will be a lot more chilled out as I don’t have that much to do.
  • I decided on my phone upgrade and sorted it out. I am going to be the proud owner of an iPhone 8 Plus after being an android fan for all these years. I can’t wait to get stuck in with it.

Five Things Which Sucked

  • My aqua aerobics class on Wednesday evening got canceled which was a shame. I still went to the gym but it wasn’t quite the same as I do really enjoy the class.
  • I had my smear test which in itself wasn’t bad but I can’t believe where the past 3 years since my last one have gone. It’s so scary to think how quickly life is passing by.
  • As the weekend was so busy I haven’t had a chance to finish Stranger Things, although up to Monday morning I have watched 5 episodes and I am loving it so far.
  • I did really badly with my workout DVD this week and have only done it once. I need to get into a better habit when I am back from holiday, at least by then I’ll have my dumbells.
  • There seem’s to be an issue with my shower door where it isn’t closing properly and it’s such a pain as it’s another thing which I need to get sorted.

Five Things To Do Next Week

  • Finish setting up my iPhone before I go away. As I’ve never had an iPhone there’s going to be a lot to sort out.
  • Check-in for our first flight online on Friday as you can only do it 24 hours before with BA. I think you should have a bit more time as we’re going to have to check in while we’re away for our flight home.
  • Make sure I have sorted out all of my blogging stuff for while I am away. I am not going to be posting blogs but I want to keep up to date on social media.
  • Have a bit of a relax as I know last weekend was a bit crazy
  • Write up more of my gift guides ready for when I come back as I know the 6 weeks ahead of Christmas will disappear in a blur
What have you been up to this week?

    Yay! It sounds like you’ve had such a fun week! 🙂 I have to admit, I bought some dumbells too and I’m totally obsessed with them! I use them with an iPhone app called VT Dumbell – which is kinda cool as you can build your own workouts with it (maybe something to look into for your new phone, if you’re interested) <3 xxx

    I love reading your 5 things posts as you seem to do such exciting things! However you’ve also just reminded me I am due a smear and they haven’t got in contact yet so I’ll be chasing that up – wouldn’t have remembered if it wasn’t for you! x

    We’d love to go to a Comic-Con – you are so lucky. Maybe when I’m a bit older my folks all take me. We hate the dreaded smear as well x

    You always seem to pack so much into a week. Mine seems to revolve entirely around the kids’ social activities!

    I totally need to up my game and have weeks that are as good and busy as yours. I’ve been healing from an injury and that’s been quite the bummer. I can’t wait to see the new Thor film! x

    I have done some ski lessons at the Milton Keynes snow dome and they were so much fun. I ached the next day though.
