weekly roundup 120519 - 180519

  • Sunday 16/06/19

I woke early to cuddles and kisses from my niece and nephew which was a lovely start to the day!  It was fairly grey and miserable morning and I spent the morning coloring and drawing with my nephew while my niece helped my brother and sister in law do cooking in the kitchen.  We had lunch and, as the weather was starting to improve, we all decided to go out for the afternoon.  My brother drove us all to William Morris’ Red House.  We had a lovely time walking around the house and looking at the gardens which were full of beautiful flowers and plants.  In the evening my brother and I went for a walk and phoned our Dad to wish him a Happy Fathers Day.  Once we returned to the house, my brother, sister in law and I played a few board games after the kids had gone to bed.

We woke early, my sister in law had to go to work and my niece and nephew had school.  We had breakfast, showered and got ready for the day.  My brother and I walked my niece and nephew to school and returned to the house.  We had a coffee and I sorted out my things as I had to catch the coach home later in the day.  We headed out, taking my luggage with me, and headed to the Tate Britain.  I checked my luggage into the baggage point and we went on a journey through time looking at art through the years.  Once we had been “arted out” we went for a walk and stopped off at a park for lunch before making our way back towards Victoria Station.  On the way, we passed Westminster Catherderal, my brother had his graduation ceremony there years ago and we decided to have a look around, it was amazing to see, and so beautiful.  After looking around we got to Victoria Station, I had a while to wait for my coach so my brother left me as he needed to get home to pick the kids up from school.  The coach was delayed by 45 minutes but I was quite happy to sit and read my book and drink the Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino which I’d treated myself to.  I arrived home around 9:30pm and Roxy was so excited to see me!

I had the day off from work and slept in til 11:40am, I was soo tired!  It’s surprising just how much traveling can wear you out!  I spent some time browsing the internet getting some ideas for flatlay props…the workshop at the Bloggers Bash has really ignited something creative in me.  I think I now have an idea of what sort of things I want in my flatlay props kit and where I want to head with my blog and social media photography.  It will be nice to get back into taking photos and using the knowledge I have, as well as putting to use skills that I learned from my photography degree!  I went to my parents in the evening to collect my car which Dad had serviced and cleaned for me.

  • Wednesday 19/06/19

I worked late today, until nearly 6:00pm as I had a load of paperwork to sort through.  Work was really draining, it was really noisy and hard to concentrate which really affected my mood.  I got home from work and just locked myself away in the silence which made things a little better.  I had an early night as I really didn’t want to do much else.

  • Thursday 20/06/19

I woke early, partly because of my early night, but also because a cat and a crow were staging a street fight by my house, I think the crow won as the cat made a yowl and ran off.  I couldn’t see the crow but he made a heck of a racket after the cat had gone.  I decided to get up and start my day at 5:30am!  I had a shower, made lunch and breakfast, had a coffee and caught up on some blog things.  I headed into work and got on with all the things I needed to do and managed to get everything done and my desk cleared by 5:15pm.  I got home and played with Roxy, did some housework and then headed to bed.

  • Friday 21/06/19

My car is running weird, I thought it could have a bit of air in the system where my Dad had done a full oil change.  I drove it to the fuel station and put some fuel in it, and then, driving to work, the engine management light started flashing.  Once I’d arrived at work and parked I phoned my Dad who said that my wiring loom was starting to break down and that could be the cause.  I headed into the office and worked until 3:00pm before heading to my parents (via B&M Bargains for a few things) as Dad said he would look at it for me.  Dad dropped me off after he got back from work and later my friend came over, we are watching Killing Eve (the second series).  I treated myself to a bottle of wine from the Co-Op (I had a 40p off voucher to use) and we had cheese and chips from the local takeaway.

  • Saturday 22/06/19

I think I have an allergy to wine…my head was really achy this morning and my mouth was drier than a desert.  It has taken me much of the day to start feeling more human.  One of my friends popped by earlier which was nice, we had a good catch up over a few cups of (much needed) coffee.  I put the hoover around and did a load of washing but much of the day has been spent not doing anything much.

How has your week been?  What have you been up to?  I’d love to hear so leave me a comment!

  1. Last week was pretty good for me! I firmed up my lease for my new place so I actually have a place that I am renting starting July 27th. I had my orientation for my summer job. AND (I haven’t posted this on my blog yet so inside scoop for you!) I got an email from the principal from the school where I will be teaching and I’ll be going in this week to find out what grade I’ll be teaching!!! 😀 😀 😀 I’m so excited!

  2. It sounds like you had a full week! I got my hair (re)colored yesterday, so now it’s a bright pink! I’ve been feeling under the weather so I stayed in all week.


  3. I’m massively like you in that if my work environment is too loud i find it really draining too… leaves me super tired and with a massive headache. Exciting to hear that Bloggers Bash got you pumped for your blog photography! Flatlays are the cutest things ever – second hand/charity stores are FAB for finding flatlay props xx

    1. I hadn’t thought of charity shops! I’ve been sorting through my craft stash tho and have a ton of cute papers I can use but could do with some other elements too!!! Xxx


    1. Hope you catch up soon! And hope you have a lovely time with your guests! I’m off work with a stomach bug today so plan on sitting under the blankets with my dog and laptop working on some blog stuff xxx
