Monday at last! Most of you I’m sure are thinking, NO, it can’t be Monday already, but I’m so glad it’s here! After a full week lost to the flu I can’t wait to get back to work and back to normality again! Usually on a Monday I show you all my wardrobe for the week, but seeing as I was at home ill all week none of my outfits were worn, so this week I will just use the clothes I previously planned https://mylifemyblogzane.wordpress.com/2014/03/24/12870/.
THE ‘GOOD’ PARTS OF MY WEEK WITH THE FLU
Well I spent most of the week either in bed or tucked up on the sofa in front of the TV. Thank goodness for SKY On Demand or I would have gone mad! In between loads of sleep and naps I have somehow become addicted to Game Of Thrones! Ryan is really into it and I tried watching it before with him but had no idea what was going on! It just seemed like it was full of blood, murder, sex, naked people and mud with no real story to it. After watching it from the beginning now, yes that is what it’s basically full of but it does have a story and it is so addictive. I only started watching it on Thursday when I was starting to feel a bit better and already I am nearly on season 3, (I have to watch it alone and turn it over when mum or dad are in the room, because really that would just be too weird and uncomfortable to watch with them!) As I write this now at 1am on Friday night/Saturday morning (I can’t sleep, must have slept too much today) I am watching Game of Thrones and hopefully by the time you read this I will be up to date for the new season!
At the end of last week it was my birthday and pay day, so when I was feeling better I went on a bit of a shopping spree, all bargains though! These all arrived on my week off, first to arrive was my Model’s Own haul – 6 polishes for £20. Keep an eye out later in the week for my review.
Next to arrive was the latest Jojo Moyles book The One Plus One. A bargain on Amazon for I think it was £7.00, rather than £14.99. I really loved her book Me Before You and I have heard good reviews for this one, so I can’t wait to see how it ends (I’ve already started it).
Then there was my Limited Edition Benefit YOU Beauty Discovery Box that I told you about on Friday
This little beauty arrived on Thursday but typically I missed the postman and got one of those stupid ‘your parcel is waiting at the post office’. I literally just missed the postman, by the time I got up and to the door he was at his van, and he DID NOT have a parcel in his hands! I swear some of these delivery men just write the little note, ring the door/knock, post the notes and off they go back to their van! Ok rant over, just wait to you see the size of the box these arrived in!
Yes for my little box of 6 hand creams I got the most MASSIVE box, I swear you could fit a microwave in it! No wonder the delivery guy couldn’t hide it anywhere!
Another bargain at £20.50 (including P&P) instead of £32.50 from Crabtree & Evelyn. I can’t wait to try out these new scents once my original Rosewater one is finished.
In the Crabtree & Evelyn order I was also able to chose a free sample, I went for this one.
Last of all my other books from Amazon arrived. These 6 books came to a total of £25, a total bargain! That’s one of the reasons why I prefer Amazon to book shops, the prices are a bargain and I don’t feel stupid/uncomfortable. Weird as that my sound, I’m really not a big reader and only in the past 5 years or so have I really started reading, I used to hate it, always remembering from when I was a child people telling me I couldn’t read or was awful at reading. What I find daunting about book shops is I don’t know what genre it is I like to read, I never know where to look in book shops and I feel like a total idiot when I ask the staff in the store. Amazon therefore is brilliant as I can snoop around the ‘shelves’ with ease and they recommend books on my previous buying history.
I recently watched the Book Thief in the cinema and really enjoyed it so I hope the book delivers the same. Whilst at the cinema I have seen a couple of trailers for A Long Way Down, however I haven’t heard the best reviews for the film and have been told the book is much better, so I thought I would find out for myself. Girl in the Mirror is now the only Cecelia Ahern book I haven’t read so I had to get it for my collection. As for The Husband’s Secret and Gone Girl I just liked how the sounded and thought they looked like a good read. I’ve had a few people tell me how good they are so I really can’t wait to get reading them all!
And that was the highlights of my week with the flu, thankfully now I am much better and back to work!
I hope you all have a great week and enjoy the rest of this week’s blog posts!
