In between lengthy sessions of The Sims 4 and even lengthier sessions spent laughing until we feel drunk on laughs with my sister, I had a week this week! I didn’t quite manage to post a Sundaze update last week as I spent the day at Kristabel’s frankly awesome #youcansitwithusLDN event in London before an incredibly all-five-of-us family dinner in the evening. But this week has been long and I’ve felt jittery for much of it and so I thought it’d be apt to brew some coffee, take up a place by the window and offload thoughts.
一. On Monday, my boyfriend’s Mama dropped off their adorable pooch to spend a week with us whilst they holiday. Pixie is the sweetest little thing – she’s a Chihuahua x Jack Russell – and she’s added SO much fun and vivacity to our household! Milo absolutely adores her and can’t be without her for a second, whilst she cried the other day because we were bathing Milo upstairs. Kids…! It has, however, confirmed that when we decide to rescue a dog, we’ll most likely already be ready.
二. I took a little time out yesterday afternoon to reply to some blog comments, one of my all-time favourite blog admin tasks. And I just had to extend an overarching ‘thank you!’ for your wonderful comments on this week’s posts! I try not to beat myself up too much on the rarity of receiving comments these days as I know it’s just one of those things as Twitter, Instagram and other such channels take over as the preferred medium of chatting to bloggers, but it’s still so good to get them. I always make an effort to respond to you guys and click on links too – you can never read too many blogs!
三. Finally went to see La La Land last night! I know, I know, a thousand years late to the party but I couldn’t convince anybody to go with me. My sister is home from Uni at the moment (well, until tomorrow!) so we headed out yesterday and saw it at long last! It totally lived up to expectations and I think next week will probably consist of me listening to the soundtrack on repeat. We messed up on ticket buying though and ended up having to sit separately; me with a sharing platter of nachos and Louise with a drink larger than my entire future and wardrobe combined.
四. I shared a super cheesy but real Valentine’s post on Tuesday but didn’t really share much else of our day online. And that’s just the way I wanted it. I don’t think I’ve ever had a Valentine before and, you know what? We barely even celebrated it. It was just another Tuesday, and a sleepy one at that. I’m strongly of the belief that love can and should be celebrated everyday. And my card was totally not Instagrammable or PG, anyway!
五. Had a super relaxed Friday this week! I set aside the day to hang with Louise on another of our infamous sister dates. The day began with a lengthy 4k dog walk around the lake, where we indulged ourselves in the Pokemon GO update – JOHTO BABY! – and filled up our Pokedexes. We then headed out to try some Turkish food at a Turkish restaurant that recently opened up in our hometown before shooting an outfit post and spending the rest of the day in a coffee shop, simultaneously working and laughing deliriously at our music taste ten or so years ago. The best!
And that, in a nutshell, was my mid-February week! How was yours?
