December 1st

Yayy it’s the first day that we are actually allowed to get excited about Christmas!!
Every year during November I enjoy looking for advent calendars to see which new ones have come out this year. This year I bought my boyfriend the Reese’s peanut butter cup advent calendar as this is his favourite chocolate. We never used to be about to get this advent calendar in the UK so as soon as I see it I have to buy it just in case they are not for sale in all shops. I have got a Thornton’s advent calendar this year which I am really excited about.
When I was younger we used to have one of those advent calendars that my parents would fill up with little chocolate treats/ lollipops. As there was three children in my family this was really good because it meant we didn’t have to share one advent calendar where only one of us got a chocolate each day.
Even my dog has an advent calendar and she seems to know that she has one because last year I remember each day at a certain time she would know that it was her turn to have her advent treat.
Today I am going to go and do some Christmas shopping for my family members. I have actually already brought quite a lot of my presents this year already which I am really happy about as I am never usually this organised. Although I am struggling to think of present ideas for my mom as she is always the one that I struggle the most to think of gift ideas for. I enjoy going Christmas shopping but usually I go quite early so that I can be done before it starts to get really busy.
Hope you are all enjoying the first day of December 😊

Life Update

Life has been super busy this last week so I haven’t got around to blogging a lot. Well actually the whole of September so far has been pretty busy due to quite a lot of changes going on at the moment but hopefully I can try to get the blogs into a more regular schedule again. I really do enjoy blogging so I need to find more time to fit it in.
I had a really nice day yesterday; I went out for some lunch and went for a nice relaxing walk. I then went a and did a little bit of shopping… I didn’t really need anything but I still had a couple of vouchers to use from my birthday so I spent those in Topshop on a new little bag. My old bag has just broke so it was the perfect excuse to get a new one. I love Topshop as the quality of their products is usually really good. I don’t buy all my clothes from there as it can be quite expensive but I do like to have a few versatile pieces from there which I can mix with clothes from other shops.
After shopping I went to the cinema; there hasn’t been that much in the cinema over the summer that I have really wanted to watch but I really enjoy going to the cinema because the film has my full attention. When you watch a film at home it isn’t the same because I get distracted by so many things and I end up watching parts of a film rather than the whole thing.
I ended up watching ‘King of Thieves’ which I didn’t know that much about beforehand but I knew it had Michael Caine in it so I thought it must be good if he’s in. Generally I have enjoyed films that Michael Caine has been in before so thought I would give it a chance. I actually really enjoyed King of Thieves and would recommend other people watching it. Sometimes picking a film that you haven’t heard about is a better option because you have no expectations so you can’t be disappointed. The film was quite funny and I would watch it again in the future.
I am having another fairly chilled day today doing odd jobs that I need to do before Monday and listening to a few podcasts. I am also hoping to get my hair cut because I have been putting it off for so long but now it has got to a length that is starting to annoy me so I think it’s time to get it sorted out.
Hope you are all having an enjoyable weekend 🙂

It’s Saturday!!

The sun is shining and it’s Saturday…. What a perfect combination.

After a busy week I have had a fairly slow start to the weekend but now I am up and ready to go and enjoy the sunshine. I think we are going to go and explore Worcester today. I have been to Worcester quite a few times before and I always have a good time there. There is quite a few shops to look round and a lovely walk by the river. It’s that sunny today I might even have to myself to an ice cream 🙂

Last night I was reunited with an old friend and I really enjoyed catching up and laughing at all the funny stories we have from when we were younger. It’s funny how no matter how long it’s been since we last saw each other it is always the same and feels like it is back to how it was when we were teenagers. We were laughing at how times had changed because usually we would have gone on a night out when she comes back but yesterday we just went on a nice walk…. We must be getting older! It’s always nice having old friends back in your life even if it’s only for a couple of hours.
I feel quite motivated today so when I get home tonight I think I am going to get back onto the job hunting and see what jobs pop up. I am still waiting for an interview to be scheduled but I can’t keep waiting around for it as there is never any guarantee that I would even get that job and I could miss out on another opportunity while I wait. I’ve got to keep trying and then something will eventually appear that I am really interested in.

Anyway I am off to enjoy the sunshine…. so make sure you enjoy it too!

Saturday Feeling!

Saturday is my favourite day of the weekend…probably because I know I still have the whole of Sunday left off work too. I haven’t got anything special planned today so I can do whatever I fancy. I have had a nice chilled morning relaxing and now I am off in to town to have a walk and a mooch around a few shops.

I have heard that Wilkinson’s has got half price pic and mix so I might have to have a sneaky visit to investigate. Who doesn’t love pic and pic!!

I am then going to visit my nan as I usually do on a Saturday and have a catchup. Later I am off for a walk and a meal at a cosy pub with the boyfriend so it is quite a nice relaxing Saturday today.

The weather is a lot cooler today which is actually quite nice after how hot it has been all week and we can finally take the dogs out for a walk. We have had my sister’s dog staying all week and he loves his walk. I enjoy the walks as much as the dogs do as I love being outside and exploring.
