The Weekend Blog (Vol.77)
24th October 2015
It feels like I’ve taken a blogging break as it’s been over a week since I last posted. I know I said I was relaxing my schedule but I didn’t mean this much!
Life has been a little hectic over the last couple of weeks. I always seem to have a to-do list as long as my arm, and unfortunately blogging hasn’t been a priority.
Normal service will resume soon…hopefully.
Last weekend I went home to Shropshire to spend some time with my parents. I felt like I needed a break from being an adult, and being at home allowed me to relax and rest.
It’s certainly made me excited for Christmas and going home for what will feel like an eternity (I have nearly 2 weeks off).
In other news, I went to see Hairspray last week at the Empire theatre with my friend Becky. It was my second time seeing the show, and the first time I saw it on the West End, so I had high expectations. I’m so glad I wasn’t disappointed. I smiled so much, from beginning to end, that my face hurt.
By the way, Becky has started a food blog, and I highly recommend you go take a look.
I found out yesterday that Liverpool is finally getting a proper Comic Con, and then Tyrone and I proceeded to dance around the room to celebrate. We’ve been wanting to go to a Comic Con for a while but it all adds up with the cost of tickets, trains and hotels (if we wanted to do a couple of days), so the fact we can now go to one that is within walking distance is super exciting.
Today I dragged Tyrone shopping with me. I’ve been desperate for a new pair of black boots because, thanks to my hip condition, I wear out shoes so quickly. I finally found a pair that are exactly what I’ve been looking.
Also, I upgraded my phone from an iPhone 4 to a 6. I’d had my iPhone for 3 years and so it was starting to die. It struggled to connect to the charge, the home button didn’t work and I couldn’t update the software. This is my first contract phone and now I feel like a real adult, but it felt so good going into the shop knowing that I could buy a phone with the money I’ve worked hard for.
Have a great weekend!
