A shift at work complete and a bathroom cleaned. I think that gives me justification to sit down and write this post, don’t you?
It’s been an interesting week. It was my birthday on Monday, so I had a lovely day and got completely spoilt. But for some reason, my anxiety really played up on Tuesday, so rather than making it to the gym, I got in the car, burst into tears and went back inside.
Wednesday was then a good (and needed) shopping trip with my Mum. The nice thing was that we were able to have a decent chat about what is going on in my head (the result? My mind is a crazy place where even I don’t know what is going on!).
As part of a birthday present, I received a make-up lesson. I had that on Tuesday afternoon and learnt loads. I’m coming to make-up a little late, but then proceeded to splash out and buy some new products. I’ve been playing as the week has gone on and really like it. I don’t look my age but find wearing make-up boosts my confidence.
I wasn’t sure how I was actually going to get through all of May’s reviews because of deadlines etc. But then one of my lovefilm’s was scratched, and as compensation, they send you extra out. I suddenly had nearly all the films that I wanted to review arrive at once – bonus!
Talking of reviews, have you been following the blog this week? If not, fear not! It’s not too late to have a catch up:
- Monday: Book Review: A Mighty Dawn by Theodore Brun
- Wednesday: Don’t Judge a Book By Its Cover
- Friday: Television Review: Orphan Black, Series 2
- Saturday: Book Review: Dragon Trials by Ava Richardson
I really need to start controlling my book buying habit. Well, I say buying – it really should say obtaining because I keep getting hold of the free ones. But five books in two days is a little excessive, especially as I have only finished one book this week. Anyone got any tips for book self-control? Haha!
I’ve slowly been re-reading the fifth Harry Potter this week. I’m surprising myself with how much I am enjoying them. It’s my first time re-reading them as an adult and I’m thoroughly enjoying them.
But with all these books floating around, what do I have planned for reviews next week?
- Monday: Book Review: The Elfstones of Shannara by Terry Brooks
- Wednesday: Book Tag: Currently Reading
- Friday: Film Review: A Street Cat Named Bob
I absolutely adored A Street Cat Named Bob – I really hope you enjoy my review. Has anyone seen it? I’ve got the book now waiting for me to read, which I am very excited about (a post on that is coming soon!).
I’m feeling in a pleasant determined mood at the moment. I’m hoping this is going to turn into a blog writing session so I can get on top of reviews!
I hope everyone has had a lovely week!
