Whenever it comes around to writing a fresh Sunday Thoughts post, I always end up sitting here thinking ‘where the hell has this week gone?’. They seem to be flying by and I just can’t believe how quick they’re going. But, this week has been a whirlwind. Between the EU referedum and the Euros. It’s been full of ups and downs. I’m not here to moan about how the referedum ended, but you have to understand that it’s just disappointing. On the plus side; WALES ARE IN THE QUARTER FINALS! I’m not going to sit here and pretend to be one of those crazy football fans but I have been keeping up with the Euros purely for Wales, and in a really shitty week, they have still made me feel so proud to be Welsh.
Work-wise, I moved from training on Friday! I’m going to miss my little training team so much, it’s going to be weird not seeing them on Monday morning. But I have to say the girls on my team are absolutely lovely! They’ve made me feel so welcome already, and I have only spent a few hours with them! Wednesday, I’ll finally have my own little home in work. I have my lamp ready to go, but still need a few other little bits to decorate my desk. If you have any suggestions please drop them in the comments or tweet me @horrorgrrrrl. I need a pen holder, a tea coaster, a desk calendar and some pretty decorative bits too!
I finally partially got my outfit sorted for the Races and surprise, surprise it’s nothing that I picked in my recent post. I found something else I fell in love with in Newlook. I’m thinking of doing an outfit post on it nearer the time, so keep your eyes peeled! I just have to find the perfect accessories to finish the outfit off.
I spent yesterday morning driving around with my dad looking at possible new cars, but we had no luck. It was super nice to spend some time with my dad though, father-daughter time is a rarity. After driving around for hours, I spent the afternoon with mumma before she jetted off to her second family in Portugal this morning. We didn’t really do a lot, just caught up on each others gossip from the week over a drink. It was nice to just chill and do sweet nothing. Last night Nathan and I had a cute movie/tv night in bed, we watched Gogglesprogs, before falling asleep half way through Twilight and indulged in Magic Stars, Pringles and Skittles.
Completely off topic but, I really want to get myself some sort of diary/planner to organise myself more, to set myself goals not only for blogging but for little things around the house too. So, I’m going to be hunting for the perfect one for myself over the next few weeks.
Anyway, I spent this morning cleaning the house, I think I now have the smell of bleach permanently etched into my skin. It’s so therapeutic, such a chore at first but once you’re neck deep in cleaning products there’s no way out, and once it’s all done it makes me feel so refreshed. I can’t wait to decorate and get myself a desk for the spare room, but for now it’s filled with heaps of cardboard and things that we haven’t found a place for yet. After cleaning I made Nathan and I a good old bacon butty because what is Sunday without a bacon butty. We then went and did our weekly food shop, before getting in our comfy clothes and chilling on the sofa. Which is where I am now.
I’m going to spend the rest of my afternoon catching up on posts from my favourite bloggers, which I haven’t been able to read throughout the week before taking part in the #lbloggers chat at 7pm. Happy Sunday my lovelies.
