Bout of Books 22: Day 5

I know, I know, I didn’t post yesterday and I actually feel pretty rubbish about that fact. I’ve really not been at my best over the past 24hrs, and ended up doing a lot of things that were house related and pretty much no reading. Oops, oh well. I can’t believe tomorrow is the weekend, that we’re so far through this week, it’s crazy! I have the honour of hosting today’s Space Scavenger Hunt challenge, hope you love it!

Bout of Books 22: Day 3

It’s Day 3 of this thing which means tomorrow we are actually half way and that fact is scaring me a little bit, I don’t want to lie to you guys!! I am off work today (I’m not sick of anything, I am working the weekend so I have today off instead) so I am going to try and get some hard reading done. I haven’t held any twitter sprints this time round, but that might change tonight. I have some free time later, so if you’re around and fancy a reading buddy…

Updates

10:30am: I had a lie in this morning and it was absolutely delightful. I slept a little better last night and even though my eyes and nose are funny again from the hayfever I seem to have developed this year, I am feeling a little more alive. I am taking my Gran to the local garden centre for lunch, so I am going to see if I can squeeze in a little more reading before I go.

11:15am: So I’ve taken my challenge picture and put it on Instagram, I’ll need to update the challenge section in a little bit. It was a good one today!

14:00pm: I took my Gran to the local garden centre for lunch and a small shop today which was nice. The weather is starting to improve and the plants were out and the whole thing was lovely. I haven’t spent much time with her recently so it was nice to do something together! I got some fancy jam and some bedding plants, I really need to sort out Barry the Hanging basket because he is looking a little dead!! In other news, my parents have floated the idea of going to Russia next year, and after a few minutes it has escalated to a multi city journey that starts in Moscow, goes to St. Petersburg and finishes in Tallinn, Estonia. You can see where I get it from.

16:30pm: I texted Emma about an hour/90 mins ago saying Deadpool 2 was out and suddenly out quiet evening of reading has dissolved into a Bakchich tea and a trip to the cinema. I’m quite excited though, for both. I love Bakchich and I’ve been waiting for Deadpool 2 for ages!!

21:45pm: The food was incredible, as always. I have shawarma and falafel and hummus and it was just amazing. Turns out I adore middle eastern food. Deadpool 2 was also pretty funny. It wasn’t as good as the first but then sequels hardly ever are, but it was funny and ridiculous. I was sat next to a Spanish set of friends and was a little depressed that they could understand it completely in a second language but couldn’t help smiling at how hilarious he found it.

Challenges

Coming soon!

Bout of Books 22: Day 1

 

Guess who’s back, back again, Guess who’s back, tell a friend, yes yes yes it’s Bout of Books Time. I had completely lost my reading mojo, but excitement about my favourite readathon got me back in the reading mood last night and I could not be happier about that fact!

There will also be a Twitter Chat at 8pm CST (TZC) so if you’re up and about online, you should definitely take part.

Fat Friday: Week 32

Look at me remembering to post on a Friday night all over again (well, I mean, it kind of is right, even though it’s technically past midnight?!) I have been writing this post for hours though now, mainly because I have forgotten how to do things like blog, but also because I have been taking my whole day off to do completely diddly squit. It’s been quite a busy week full of things that don’t help dieting in anyway but are quite fun.

Fat Friday: Week 31

Oops I did it again! I know, I realise it’s Saturday but in my defence we’re having the best weather we’ve had in months and my friends are to visit us for the weekend, so I have been a little bit preoccupied. I’ve had a busy week at work, followed by a couple of days of catching up and getting outdoors. I think the summer is arriving, and I am all about this better weather, this can stay.
