This Week I Have Been Mostly….

this week i have been mostly

The last few weeks have been quiet but busy all at once. I’ve been keeping myself busy with bits and bobs.

The country celebrated both Pancake Day and Valentine’s Day. I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, as a rule, but we definitely celebrate Pancake Day. Sugar and lemon is my topping of choice – call me a traditionalist.

I’ve also been keeping up with my calligraphy hobby – I apparently have a pen purchasing issue. As of today I don’t need any more pens, however I’m pretty sure I’ve said that before about lipsticks and mascaras, and here we are….


To start off our weekend we headed to KFC for our Friday night junk food fix, only to be met with ‘closed’ signs at every shop we went to. As you’ll probably know now, KFC had a distribution issue and as a result were unable to serve both chicken or chips. As such we ended up in Five Guys, and you know what? I think the Five Guys magic has worn out on us – I really wanted chicken I guess.


This weekend we saw both I, Tonya and The Florida Project. I really enjoyed them both. Having been to Florida a couple of times and visited and been into some of the buildings they shoot in during the movie, I was really interested to see what the film was all about. I wasn’t disappointed, and though the film was just going through the motions of the everyday life of people during Summer break, it was a really interesting and amazingly acted movie (especially due to the age of the main actors). I, Tonya was brilliant too, with fantastic acting from Allison Janney (I love her!). The movie was funnier than I expected too!

It was President’s Day weekend this weekend in America, which reminded me it has been 15 years since I visited with Gary. Our first holiday together, and my first time on a plane, first time in America and first time being snowed in another country. We had an extra day in the snowy city (New York snow I the most beautiful in the world) which gave us plenty of time to play in the freezing temperatures.


But still, 15 years ago. That’s a whole lifetime ago. So much has changed since then – and all for the better!

So, this week I have some time off work, which means blog planning, cleaning, seeing family and friends, and hopefully lots of rest. I’ll also be catching up on tv.

In fact whilst I type this I’m watching episode 3 of the new season of The X-Files. If we forget the first episode, I’m enjoying the season so far. I have no memory of how the last season of, what I would call, the proper series ended (you know, before the reboots) but I’m loving the sparkage between Mulder and Scully.

Anyhow, enough of that. It’s time to get busy doing all the relaxing! See ya real soon!

Clearing My Weekend

First of all, I’d like to say ‘Hello’ to all my new visitors! I have been getting a lot of blog traffic due to a Pinterest post Chicken and Frogs which included a recipe. I hope you’ve all enjoyed it and if you made it I’d love to see what you think! I’ve also had a huge amount of visitors due to my post about Grave Encounters which is nice to see because I really enjoyed those movies and I hope you did too!

So this weekend I had quite a lot planned but the whole of the week I was so exhausted that towards the end of the week I started to cancel my plans. I have had such a wonderfully lazy weekend and it’s been a welcome change because I swear I haven’t had a chill out like this for about 3 months. Yay for being lazy! I’m feeling so much better for it today and even think I’ll be able to manage a good run tomorrow after work.

We have been working hard towards some good news, and I think it’s probably okay to share now. We’re almost at the point of exchanging contracts on our first house purchase. We are so excited to move out and live in a real house made of bricks instead of the tissue paper house we love in right now. It’s not far from where we are now but the area’s much nicer and we won’t have neighbours who crash about and make noise all day and night. We will have a proper garden too. It’s all go and we can’t wait!

I know I’ve been blogging less over the past few weeks and I have a few blogs planned but I’ve been having issues with WordPress web tonight and so I can’t write them at the moment. This post is being written via the iPhone app which is less than ideal! I’m hoping it’ll fix itself and I’ll be back up and running soon!

Until then iPhone blogging it is! Here’s to lazy weekends and more energy for the week ahead. Have a great one!
