I’m writing this all doom and gloom on Sunday evening, unsure whether I’m hungover or just completely exhausted, even after having slept the entire day. I don’t want Monday to arrive for the lifeeeee of me but the fact that it’s both payday week and bank holiday weekend AND I’ll be stuffing my face at Broncos for my nieces 5th birthday, makes it a little more bearable than normal.
I feel as though I haven’t blogged in forever, although the reality is, I haven’t been away for too long. I had planned a shit load of blogs for the past week or two but turns out, I actually really like to sleep and binge watch The Big Bang Theory so it just hasn’t happened. I needed a little break though, I’ve been in a bit of rut and life at home hasn’t been too peachy so didn’t want to pretend all was good when it hasn’t been.
I have however, had some pretty swell days that would be silly not to chat about. Last weekend, I met an old friend from high school that I hadn’t seen or really spoken to in the last 5 years. It was insanely nice to be back together, having a chinwag over some decent food and pink lemonades at Bills, it made me realise how many real friends slipped away once we all moved on to Uni. It felt good to catch up on everything (which after 5 years, basically meant a few hours of verbal diarrhoea) but it goes to show how easy it is to let people slip away. Even in a world where everyone is connected over social media, it feels like it has become so easy not to talk to people anymore. I had the cutest day being back with my friend, and I won’t be leaving it another 5 years, that’s for sure.
That night, things all went skee-whiff at home but Charlie and I decided to go for date night and get some food at Meat & Shake in Tooting. I had planned to blog it but needed the night to just be all cute and forget about the rest of the world so I didn’t take my camera, but I will say this – it’s tiny and the atmosphere felt strange but the food was amazing. Definitely recommend for any meat lover.
Saturday nights are my favourite but they always seem to write off Sunday, even with just a couple of cocktails. Last night, my friend Emma and I took to London’s Madison’s for a couple of cute rooftop drinks. 100% what I needed this weekend so here’s a couple of snaps
It’s safe to say that I am very ready for May. Work has been tough and going sick this week made me realise how much is going on in my life all at the same time. Think it all just got too much. A day in bed with Netflix followed by some quality time with my sister, definitely helped me re-fuel. I’m feeling good about this week. I have been completely in love with life so I feel sad that I’ve lost that a little in the last two weeks. I’m ready to start fresh, be happy and productive and I’m getting excited for summer.
I have the bestest boyfriend and the most amazing understanding friends and I’m going to bed with fresh sheets, a cup of tea, and a whole load of TV, so life really isn’t so bad.
Soz about chewing your ears off about everything random that I was meant to blog about, but didn’t. It’s good to get it all out. I hope you have had the most beaut Monday and all ready to tackle the week!
