This post was due to go up Sunday (yesterday) evening however, I returned to my flat and had a bad IBS (or whatever it actually is) flare up and I couldn’t do anything all evening and as it already written, I decided that it would go up today. I hope that it isn’t too boring.
What have I been doing
Work, Work and Work… again, another full week in the office except for a couple of hours off for a hospital checkup. I was meant to get my MRI results on Thursday but this did not go to plan. So, I took time out of my day to attend the hospital but the person who provides the report on the MRI to the doctor is actually on holiday and this means that it hasn’t been done. I don’t know who was more shocked, me, the doctor or the receptionist when I had to re-book the appointment. I am therefore, no further forward in this respect.
I also managed to book some time off for Menorca in October which is really exciting and I am looking forward to getting away for a few days with my family and Mike. We also booked the flights which is good and now I am starting to get excited already!! It is annoying when your partner is a teacher, it means even flights are expensive that week. We were lucky with Mexico as he was doing supply work so could fly during term time but he did potentially lose pay for those 2 weeks.
In Norfolk again (I have no idea what happened to I am not coming back to Norfolk as much in August this may be my plan for September) because I have a hair appointment Saturday morning. I still come back to Norfolk to get my hair done every 6 weeks because I really like the girl who does it and it is so much cheaper than both Herts and London.
It has also been 4 years since I first started dating Mike so we have decided to go for lunch which will be nice. We were looking at a picnic but the weather in the UK this week has been SO bad. We opted for Nandos (YUM!) and then went to our favourite branch of Starbucks. We do love spending time in all coffee shops but this one branch of Starbucks has to be our favourite, the staff are so friendly.
Blog & Products
I have been using products from my boots haul see post here. I will be doing a full review of the Rimmel Liquick Lipsticks this week I have been using both colours so far and actually really like both shades. I am so used to pinky nudes in the past year so the Moca shade takes some getting use to but I do enjoy it when I am brave enough.
I have also been trying to be a bit more personal with my blog. At the beginning, I was very self-conscious about people I know actually starting to read it and laughing at me. I am still not brave enough to post on my social media platforms but I have posted enough now that if you knew me personally, you could know it is my blog. The next step is to start using a designated Instagram and Twitter account etc.
I have been eating normally this week and also veggie for most of the week. I did opt to have meat this weekend as honestly I just really fancied it. Unfortunately, I had to cancel a dinner date with a friend Monday because my stomach was playing up but that is life for me at the moment. I havent been that adventurous with food for a while and tent to stick to easy meals because I am so lazy.
Goals for next week
Again, not to spend any unnecessary money…. I was fairly good this week however, I ended up buying more earings so all mine now match, Leggings, a book for Mike, makeup and wash bag in Primark and some essentials in Superdrug. I have planned a shopping trip with my sister the first Saturday in September and I will try not to spend any unplanned money until then my list for this trip is already growing. I have not been successful at all with taking my lunches to work with me so this is something which I really must start. My goals are therefore, the same as start week.
What are your weekly goals?
Love, Minnie x
