Five Things – Week 104

Five Things – Week 104

Five Things I Did Last Week

  • On Monday I had some wonderful news and I accepted a brand new job which was the best way to start a new week. The day ended in a celebratory meal with Luke to toast towards a new fresh start.
  • On Friday I had a lovely catch up with my friend where we had a takeaway, watched a movie and generally caught up.
  • Saturday daytime saw me and my friend head to Piano Works in Farringdon for brunch with bottomless prosecco and I had such a fun time eating, drinking and then dancing to the live music.
  • After bottomless brunch I met my other half and we went to see Franz Ferdinand in Brixton which was such a fun show and I knew far more of the songs that I thought I would.
  • Sunday was a bit more relaxing and saw us head to my brother and his girlfriend’s new flat as they’ve just finished doing it up and they have done such a lovely job of it as it looks so nice and they have the Swoon TV stand which I am in love with.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • I had a really great collaboration approved for next month in conjunction with my trip to New York and I am so excited about it.
  • I paid my car tax this week so that’s one thing I can tick off my list to do, and I only had to pay £20 for the whole year which I was so happy about.
  • Somehow I managed to lose 1.5 pounds at Slimming World which I was very happy about so here’s to moving forward and losing some more in future weeks.
  • My Alex drawers have been all painted and I absolutely love how it looks, I am just waiting for some extra in drawer storage to come through and for a new light to be added so I can do my makeup there.
  • My boyfriend brought round a print of his and hung it on the wall and I love that very very very slowly the flat is starting to look more like ours and not just mine that he stays in.

Five Things Which Sucked

  • We were going to see The Darkest Hour at an independent cinema this Sunday but when I went to get tickets they had all sold out which was a real shame as I really want to see the movie.
  • The first paint that we tried on my Alex drawers just didn’t stick and I had to make a second (and third) trip to B&Q to get alternatives to make it just right.
  • The day after I handed my notice in my manager did the same thing and I know our company is really going to struggle with the transition period, and although I know it’s not my worry I do feel a bit guilty.
  • There’s a bunch of items that I want to do some little crafts with but Hobby Craft as a little disappointing with the products that they had and I’m going to need to pop to some other places to get what I need.
  • After my brunch I didn’t feel my absolute best during the rest of the day (thank god we sat down for the gig)! For the first time ever I couldn’t even finish a nandos 🙁

Five Things To Do Next Week

  • Start packing for New York as I go in about 10 days time.
  • Completely re-organize my make-up and skincare both in my en-suite and my new Alex drawers.
  • Book the final thing we need to do for New York which is a meal on the Saturday night at Jekyll and Hyde.
  • Wrap and sort out all of my mum’s Mother’s Day presents as we’re having an early celebration as I’m away for the actual day.
  • Schedule up as much content for pre and post New York as I can.

    Congratulations on the new job! I’m the same, I always feel guilty when leaving a job, unless it’s been an unhappy environment, as I hate feeling like I’ve left my colleagues in the lurch. I really want to go to the Piano Works, I keep hearing good things although I’m sorry to hear you didn’t feel good after. Have an amazing time in New York
