Watching: I saw this movie this week
It’s called Mama and it’s amazing! If you like scary and slightly supernatural movies you’ll love it. Dark and gritty, it stars Jessica Chastain and some incredibly talented little girls. This is definitely a film I will be wanting to own and will watch again.
The Death of Bees by Lisa O’Donnell. It’s set in Scotland and is written from the perspective of two young girls whose parents are (were) junkies – until they died and their kids had to bury them in the garden. It’s an easy read but the content is very well written and intriguing.
Resting: I did my knee in on my last two runs so have been taking advice and resting, icing and stretching over the last two days. I’m back on the pavement this evening though, but hoping to run a flat course to give my knee a bit of a rest. I’ve also found a running club which goes from near my work every Wednesday and is free! If I can sync my work schedule to allow it I’d love to start running with them. We went and had a sneak peek of them as they left yesterday evening and it looks like a really nice bunch (there were about 70 of them, AND it was raining! Gee whiz!)
Dreaming: Of the future and where I’ll be in 6 months. Everything is up in the air. We wanted to be out of our house by Christmas but with my job being so uncertain this is looking less and less likely. Still it’s only just coming up to June so we can hope. I’d also like to do something for my 30th in August but who knows if I’ll be earning then.
Spending: in my mind.
This new range of OPI colours has just launched and I’d really like it. I missed the last Minnie Mouse range because by the time I could get it, it had sold through. This range has a liquid sand option and the glitter top coat is so pretty. The set of minis and the glitter top coat are on my amazon wish list so I’ll be getting them as soon as I can – or it might go on my birthday list!
Learning: about people and myself and growing as a manager at work. I’m finding it really rewarding to have worked with so many different managers this year. I’m able to take elements of all their styles and work on my own and make myself better. It’s been very unsettled at work because of all the change but I’m using it to better myself – who knows where I’ll be this time next year so I might as well reap the benefits!
for Sunday when I’ll be seeing Al Pacino at the London Palladium, in An Evening With Al Pacino. I’m really excited!
