Five Things – Week 133

Five Things – Week 133

Five Things I Did Last Week

  • On Monday I headed out for dinner with my extended family who are over from New Zealand and it was a really nice evening catching up and seeing them before they head back.
  • On Friday I was off work and I had a really productive day doing some blog and life admin bits, but also making a start on our cleaning weekend which included tidying and cleaning both bathrooms.
  • Over Saturday and Sunday me and Luke managed to clear out, tidy and sort out both of the bedrooms in our flat which I have to admit was a pretty big job but I am so happy with how it turned out.
  • On Saturday evening I headed with Luke and his family to his local golf range for an event which was nice.
  • On Sunday I picked up my parents from the airport after their holiday and it was so nice to catch up and it feels like ages since I last saw them.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • I made it back to the gym on Tuesday morning and although it was tough after so long off I did feel great going again. Here’s to a better future routine.
  • I headed to HomeSense on Wednesday evening and picked up a few new bits for the flat but I was so proud of myself for not going overboard and for not buying too many Halloween items. I know when we have a house I’ll do a bit more seasonal decorating as I’ll have space to store items but for now I’ve got to be realistic.
  • We have planned to go away with Luke’s parents and his sister next year for a week in Wales and the house that they’ve booked to stay in looks amazing complete with a hot tub so I am pretty excited.
  • We made some pretty amazing pizzas on Friday night which were so tasty. It was really nice to have a proper cook together as it was a bit of a disjointed week.
  • I managed to have a real pamper on Friday complete with hair mask, face mask, scrubs and it was so nice.

Five Things Which Sucked

  • I was a bit behind with taking photos for blog posts so for some posts I was taking the images the day the post was going live which isn’t usually my style.
  • I didn’t feel too well on Monday morning, I probably overindulged too much on Sunday but thankfully it passed quite quickly.
  • Luke hurt has back quite badly on Monday so he was on rest most of the week to try and get better. I know how uncomfortable back pain can be.
  • I have a lot of items which now need to go on eBay and I know that it’s going to take a while to get them all live, but until they’re up they’re taking up space in the flat which I hate.
  • The face mask which I used on Friday was so painful to remove and it left my face quite red.

Five Things To Do This Week

  • Work out what outfit I am going to wear to the EMP Halloween event in a day or twos time. I’ll be coming from work so I can’t go too OTT but I want to make a bit of an effort.
  • Check out the brand new Debenhams which is opening in Watford on Thursday. I am so excited that our town is finally going to have one and I can’t wait to explore the huge full floor of beauty.
  • Pay off my Treatbox Advent Calendar now we’re pretty much heading into October (scary as!)
  • Try not to go too crazy with food at afternoon tea on Sunday evening though I don’t think this will be possible.
  • Wrap presents for my Nan’s birthday which is at the weekend.
What have you been up to this week?

    Always nice to read what you’ve been up to, some highs, some lows. I have to say I cringed when you said about the face mask being painful, never a nice experience. I hope this week goes well for you. Interested to know what the Halloween outfit is going to entail.

    I am getting back into the gym at the moment too – it is tough but does make a difference x

    Well done for clearing out the bedrooms. That’s always the kind of job I wish I’d never started! Sorry to hear about the face mask – I guess it seemed like a good idea at the time!

    Good reminder – I have too a lot of stuff to put on Ebay – hope Luke is feeling better!

    I’m so with you on the eBay items. I have loads to list but they do take up a lot of space. I run mine for ten days and if they’re not gone just keep relisting them…it does mean the sit in bags in my hallway/under the bed for ages though.

    It sounds like you have had an amazing week. It’s always nice to catch up with extended family and hey who doesn’t LOVE managing to get in a self-pamper session!
    Good luck with getting everything done this week and Happy Birthday to your Nan!

    I love a good face mask but not good it hurt when you removed it . EMP Halloween you so need to report back on that as it will be so cool.

    Ooh I hate when the eBay stuff builds up and you’ve got to list it all- but it is always such a buzz when it sells!

    An eBay shop can be hard work to run! But all the hard work you put into it is rewarding! 🙂 x

    You’ve always got so much on, Rhian. I don’t know how you do it! I had a particularly busy week last week and now I’m feeling really under the weather again. It always seems to happen 🙁

    I really need to get going with tidying and sorting, I just seem to never find the time.
