I got back into the routine of going to the gym this week *hooray* going both Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and I did feel great doing so. I need to keep this up and make sure that I get into more of a habit now.
On Wednesday evening, I had dinner round my Nan’s. I love spending time with my family and try to catch up with them as often as I can.
I managed to have a little bit of a relax on Thursday evening consisting of a bath, a TV show binge watch and an early night which was well needed!
I was at Download Festivalthis weekend which was a pretty great weekend despite the weather. I managed to see a couple of my favourite bands (Bury Tomorrow/ Beartooth) alongside some new favourites.
At Download I managed to catch up with some friends I haven’t seen in a while and watch some bands with them which was really nice. It’s so good at festivals managing to see people who I don’t see for months on end.
Five Great Things To Happen
There is a Tim Burton themed pop-up bar open in New York for a short period this summer and despite it being very tricky I managed to book two spots for myself and my friend to go when we are over there. Yes it’s at 11.30pm and yes it’s a Sunday evening but the images and design looks so amazing that I can’t not go!
I bite the bullet (no pun intended) and have decided to start a bullet journal.I have ordered my notebook (after extensive research), going out to look for pens and other bits and spend hours pouring over ideas of what to include inside it. I am really excited to get started with it. Expect a blog post about it once I’ve got used to it.
I managed to completely catch up with the new series of New Girl which culminated in Schmidt and Cici’s wedding which was beautiful. I love New Girl so much and don’t know what to do until next season 🙁
I got an offer of a job interview for the awesome job I applied for last week but sadly I have had to turn it down because the wages were just a bit too low for me to consider compared to what I am on now and travel expenses. It was nice to know that they felt I was qualified but I did hate to have to turn it down.
I found out the hotel I am staying in in New York will allow me to ship post to them while I am there which means before I go I am going to make a Colorpoporder saving me loads of money shipping to the UK *yay*
Five Things Which Sucked
As soon as I got home from Germany my boots broke 🙁 I was toying with the idea of leaving them there as they were cheap ones and covered in mud but I thought no they might be good at other festivals, then they go and break.
The weather at Download was one of the absolute worst things, it rained pretty much none stop all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday so I spent a large proportion of the weekend damp. You might have seen some of the images floating about of the mud which was pretty bad.
On Sunday morning I had a little back spasm which left my back in a bit of pain all day. Fortunately by the evening it eased up but let’s hope it doesn’t come back.
My friend drove us both home Sunday evening when she had finished work at abou 12.30-1am and I had to go to work on Monday morning which was so tough after a few days away. This is going to be one long week.
Due to the excessive rain I ended up leaving my tent in the fields at Donnington. It was a pretty good tent because it didn’t leak and it was a nice size but it was just too damp to pack it up and I had no energy to put it down.
Five Things To Do Next Week
Start prepping ahead of the big festival of the year Glastonbury which I head to next week. I can’t wait for this one but I definitely want to be prepared.
Have a cinema trip. There are so many movies which have come out that I want to see including Warcraft, Me Before You and the new Ninja Turtles movie so I need to go!
Get my diet back in gear and lose some weight next week!
Go with my friend to a Scuba Diving class on Thursday. I really want to get my padi qualification so I can properly go diving in Hawaii next year so I’ve got to start somewhere.
Have a relax. This is the first week in ages where I only have a single day festival in a bit so I want to have a lie in at the weekend (Sunday) and just be a bit lazy.
