It’s a Wednesday Wrap Up peeps!

Over the past couple of months, weeks seemed to have slipped by in fits and starts and the days rolled into one. I cannot tell you why and you have probably noticed my feelings are apparent from my extremely apathetic attempts at blogging. One thing that I can nail down is that I have not had a holiday this year but you know what that is still not an excuse (many would say ‘First World Problems’ or ‘Princess Problems’). The only defense that I actually have for such a weak excuse is that I work bloody hard and really did want to go away more than once but preferred to put it all into one big bang of a trip. All will be revealed in time!!

So, this Monday has been another one that has gone by in a bit of a blur. A mere smudge in my diary but one that I got to have a luscious breakfast with my colleague and friend and actually attempt to organise my life for tomorrow (Dentist appt – urgh!). In my tiny effort to be a grown up today I have pulled on my PJ’s, fluffy socks and lit some candles in the effort to Hygge things up and get things sorted. In the midst of this I ordered a few new bits on Amazon including the lovely ‘Little Book of Hygge’ – there has been so much hype around this little book of loveliness so I think I am ready to welcome it with open arms with the hope of putting a little Hygge into my home/life, and what better time for that introduction than Autumn in preparation for Winter (my two favourite seasons). But now we are on Wednesday, how did that happen!

About a year ago (maybe longer!) I used to take part in an awesome little weekly round-up with the lovely book blogging community called ‘It’s Monday What Are You Reading?’ and it was the PERFECT entrance into the week to organise yourself and let those around you know what you have been up to. Sheila over at Book Journey was running it at the time and has now passed the torch to the lovely Kathryn over at Book Date. I’m not sure if I am quite ready to be jumping back in but I figured an update is as good as the rest right?! So …

Bridget Jones’s Baby HAS TO BE WATCHED!!

15 years ago (Yeah I know!!) Bridget and her massive granny pants made their debut on the big screen and ever since then my love affair with her hopeful hopeless self began. Let me start by saying to prepare myself for the newest installment of Jones and co I watched both of the previous films before going to see this one. There isn’t one particular moment that I can remember laughing out loud  and feeling as if my sides are going to split because the ENTIRE film had me in stitches whilst nudging my friend sniggering to ourselves about similarities to real life. You know that you have all done it!!

That fact that such a klutz can clumsily fall into a love so deep within minutes but hold a candle burning for her one and only truly is the best reality check ever. Not only did this film make me realise how much I do love my other half and appreciate all of the little things we do for each other but it allowed me to happily reminisce about by what some may call lurid past with friends, lovers and all of the above.

Over the years just like Bridget I have evolved and whether or not I am more sensible for it I honestly couldn’t tell you but as sure as shit I wouldn’t be the strong willed person I am right now if I hadn’t been through everything I had. The same can be said for all of you I am sure and if by some strike of utter genius that someone under the age of 25 reads this post and things this old lady is crazy, all I can say to you is …

I ain’t no old lady bruv!

Just like your mother will probably tell you, you will see when you get older!

Just go with it – I speak the truth and wouldn’t lie!

If you are feeling lost at the moment then don’t fret as eventually you will find yourself and if you feel like you are drowning the best thing you can do is talk to someone. If you feel weird talking to someone then just think that either they have been through something similar and if they haven’t then you could possibly help them by talking about it now so… WIN, WIN!

As I work shifts it is rare that I will be at work every Monday and have each weekend off so life can get pretty mixed up over here. So, in an effort to not come across as a smug twat and revel in my Monday morning in bed I figured it would be best to just have a bit of a chit chat moment. Over the past month things View Full Post
