So, I thought that a catch up post is well in order. I wanted to not do many of these on this blog, as I made that mistake before, and lost views/followers. But this blog needs a weekly touch down, so you guys don’t end up being convinced that I’ve fallen into a rather suspicious looking rabbit hole or anything…
Anywayc catch up. This past week has been interesting. Monday was same old, same old. Tuesday I was at work, where I had a nasty experience involving graffiti/vandalism and near dismissal, so not great. Wednesday was quiet. Other than my counselling session. Yes, I have a counsellor, don’t be so shocked! Due to the naff stuff that took place in my past, I’ve decided that in order for me to get some new perspective on life and leave the past shite behind, that I’ll go for a few sessions in order to get it all off my chest, seriously, baggage to university? Would much rather not. Thursday I went to see Monsters University with Josh, and it was a lovely little date (first cinema date in ages, and Josh was sensible enough to keep shushed!). Friday was a trip to the Apple store for my sister in law to purchase a wireless keyboard for her iPad. Saturday was the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, a wonderful event to raise a spot of money for local kids with cystic fibrosis. I took lots of photos, but as they were on Josh’s phone, I can’t do my promotional post on it until he emails them to me (Josh, I know you read this blog, you have my email address), so look out for that. I also went to one of Josh’s friend’s 18th birthday, and I debuted my brand new Topshop dress, what do you lot think?
I think I scrub up alright! Would of been better in contact lenses, but I lost my pot at camp, and had to bin my lenses. Sunday was a pajama day, simply because I overslept, and ended up not going into work. Today was quiet, although I got to pop into town on my way home from Josh’s, whilst Waterstones was quiet, and picked up a couple of new books (will I ever learn?)
Here they are! The pink one is Evelina, by Francee Burney, the writer who inspired Austen herself to put pen to paper. It’s a novel of letters, which is a different way, a very voyeuristic way of telling a story, and I am enjoying the experience. The other book, Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell, is a darker tale of how personal tragedy can awaken you to darker injustice. I haven’t started it yet, but will get to it after I’ve finished Evelina.
However, I did clear out my wardrobe, and this bag is full of clothes to donate to the charity shop! My wardrobe of casual wear now looks like this:
I sorted them into garments as well, so it will be easier to pick out an outfit!
Only downside was when I unpacked my suitcase, and, discovered, to my horror, that this slipped into my clothes…
Josh, I do know you sometimes read this blog, and now would be a good time to get hold of me! This is your drama shirt!
And, on that note, I hope you all had a good week/weekend, and hopefully this blog should get updated more often in the next week, including rebooting the blog challenge and more of The World According To Fred!
Until then x
