The count down has begun; it’s my birthday in 14 days! But not just any birthday, I’m going to be 21! I still can’t believe it – I feel like I should still be in college or high school discussing all of the latest gossip with my friends, fooling around in my art lessons and planning a sleepover on the weekend. But no, instead I’m sitting in my own home, sorting all my bills out, whilst organising what Nathan and I are going to have for tea later. It just myths me, how grown up I must look on the outside, when all I can think about is snuggling up in bed with a cup of tea deciding which Disney film to watch.
I still need to decorate my desk in work, it’s just so bare. My lamp looks so lonely and sad, I need to get my ass into gear and order/make some cute little decorations and get some pictures printed off to make it look homely. My phone is absolutely bust now, the screen doesn’t work at all which makes me sad -payday I’m going to have to get it fixed because I am so lost without it. My contract runs out soon and I’m going to upgrade. I will get a protective case, screen cover and take out insurance on my new phone – you would think that I would have learnt by now, but clearly not.
Anyway, how has your week been? I hope it has treated you well. In all honesty, mine has been pretty boring. I haven’t done a lot apart from work and visit family. I have done a hell of a lot of online shopping with birthdays coming up. The next few weeks is so busy for birthdays. Talking about birthdays, it was Nathans youngest brothers 18th birthday on Thursday. We had a little family gathering in his Nanna’s which was lovely. Nathan’s mum taught me how to play Trumps – the card game – I had honestly never heard of it before. I ended up whooping everyone’s ass by the time we had finished. I had the day off work Friday and worked Saturday instead as my mum keeps moaning that she can’t get my birthday presents because I’m always with her on a Saturday and that’s the only day off work that she gets so I worked until 5 to let her do some shopping before meeting her after work for a little while. My dad and his side of my family have gone away in the caravan to Weymouth for around a week or so. But knowing him, they will probably end up staying longer. My dad loves caravanning it’s kind of cute really, any time he gets the chance and the weather is planning on being nice – even if it’s just for a couple of nights – they head off in the caravan to a different part of the country.
Literally nothing exciting has happened this week, and that actually doesn’t bother me. I had a busy week last week with everything I had going on, and the end of the month is going to be busy so it has been nice to just chill out. As much as I love my job, I can’t wait for my two weeks off over my birthday which is coming up. I can’t wait to have spontaneous days out, or even just chilling and doing sweet nothing. It’s going to be so nice.
Today Nathan and I have been for a nice walk, the weather has been beautiful before popping to town and going to visit his family. It’s so nice spending time with his family, they’re amazing people. We chilled out for a little while at his Mum’s house before coming home to chill. Lauren popped around not long ago with some ‘sand castle’ cakes with cute little handmade flags in, they are lush – Lauren is the queen of cakes. Her cakes are always gorgeous – the perfect way to end the weekend.
Until next week…
