Five Things – Week 113

Five Things – Week 113

Five Things I Did Last Week

  • On Monday and Tuesday morning’s I did some overtime sessions at work from 1am-3am helping out at an event so the first two days of my week were totally different with shift times.
  • After a slight knock to my car about 5/6 weeks ago my car has finally gone in for repair which means I have a Vauxhall Mocha as my hire car and it’s crazy how much bigger it feels than my Cleo!
  • The rest of my week Wednesday- Friday was just spent chilling and spending time with Luke as we didn’t see each other as much as he’d go to bed and I was still up for the first two nights and coming to bed at like 3.30am.
  • On Saturday I got a new tattoo done by an artist in Edinburgh who has tattooed me before. I got a cassette tape with flowers around it on the inside of my left ankle and I absolutely love how it came out.
  • From Saturday until Monday me and Luke were in Edinburgh exploring the city and having a bit of a change of scenery and it was such a nice weekend.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • I managed to write up quite a few blog posts this week when I was trying to keep myself awake until 1am to work so I feel like I am back on track a bit.
  • This week we booked our big holiday for Luke’s 30th birthday this year and I can reveal we are going to St Lucia. I am so excited especially as it’s a super luxury Sandals holiday, although the amount of money it making my eyes water but we did still get a great deal.
  • I was really proactive and re-contacted a lot of my old blog contacts and have managed to secure a few more projects which I am very excited about.
  • I had a glamping trip in Devon confirmed this week and I am so excited about heading there for three nights in July, hopefully the weather will be just as nice.
  • I managed to lose three pounds at Slimming World this week which I am very happy about so I just hope I can keep this up.

Five Things Which Sucked

  • The beginning of the week was very weird as I wasn’t going to bed at the same time as Luke so we didn’t get our normal evening routine together. I’m glad it was only for two days though.
  • I wanted to book for me and Luke to go to the Edinburgh Gin Distillery when we’re there but it was all fully booked which I should have expected over Bank Holiday Weekend.
  • I had a bit of a headache at the end of the week so I had to cancel my additional work overtime sessions which was such a shame.
  • I definitely didn’t have enough weather appropriate clothing for Edinburgh and this sudden heat wave which we seem to have.
  • One of the tiles on my bathroom floor seems to have cracked and I have no idea how to go about replacing it as the tiles were there when I moved in.

Five Things To Do This Week

  • Write up posts about my Edinburgh travels.
  • Get tickets for Biffy Clyro when they come out later this week.
  • Finish sorting out my tax logins so I can look at submitting my latest tax return.
  • Book tickets for Deadpool for when it comes out next week as I can’t wait to see it.
  • Plan somewhere good to eat when we go to the Grand Designs Event at the weekend.
What have you been up to this week?

    I love having a productive week. These are great!! As a blogger / real estate agent I start off every day with a list. I am always so exciting when at the end of the day my list is complete.

    I am SO jealous that you’ve been exploring Edinburgh! It always looks amazing but I’ve never had chance to go up to Scotland so I’ve never been :'(

    OOoh, how exciting that you are going to St Lucia. I love the Caribbean, but I St Lucia is a part I haven’t been to.

    I bet you love having a Mokka – they are lovely cars although not quite big enough for us. I would love to visit a gin distillery

    Well done on losing 3lbs, that’s great going! Glamping sounds fun, we are off to Devon this month!

    Your new tattoo is lovely and I’m so jealous of your St Lucia booking, I’m sure it will be worth the cost! Well done on your weight loss and hope you get your tickets to Biffy
