Monday summary


I have lost all concept of what day it is so this week's 5 good things was almost forgotten! Having lots of time off work means the days just merge into one long food and film watching binge!

I had a lovely Christmas and at the moment I'm staying with my boyfriend's family in Blackburn for a couple of days. He's out watching football so I've grabbed a few minutes on the t'internet :)

My 5 good things right now:

1) I went to a party last night held by one of my BF's friends at his AMAZING house and it involved thai green curry, lots of alcohol, and karaoke! It was so much fun but my head hurts today.

2) I still have a week of no work and that can only be a good thing.

3) I have started to write a list of New Year's resolutions and I feel really positive about sticking to them this time. I've had a sort of mid-twenties crisis and I realised there are so many things I want to do and there's nothing to stop me doing them!

4) I was totally and utterly spoilt at Christmas with presents and I literally have everything I wanted plus more!

5) Earlier in the year Lily had an ingrowing eyelash which caused an ulcer on her eye and she had to have a costly operation to remove it (luckily we have insurance!) They said it could come back and recently her eye looked really sore and I thought it was coming back with a vengeance, but TOUCH WOOD it seems ok now. I can't bear for her to go through any more operations or treatment at the vets - she's my little baby! Let's hope she is fine :)



  1. I've started my list of resolutions already too! haha, bring in the new year with a good start i suppose!
    My boyfriend lives in blackburn too, im always travelling up there, is it far from you? 2 hours for me! x

  2. Fab post,the party you went to sounds brilliant. I know how you feel about Lily, 2 of my dogs had to have eye ops this year and its horrible when they have to go to the vets x

  3. Hi Victoria

    Hope you had a lovely Christmas :)

    I was wondering if you have come across any eyeliners that stay put? I have tried urban decay ink for eyes and estee lauder and benifit but always end up with panda eyes! Thought you would be the lady to ask :)

  4. I'm glad Lily seems better. Operations are horrible, especially when it's your pet.
    Bless you with your mid-20s crisis.
    Wait til you reach 31. Muwahhh hahahaha

  5. That is awesome you still have a week off of work! It feels soo good to have a big stretch of time to do whatever you want :)

    Poor Lily! I feel bad for the cute little puggie, glad she's okay.

    Glad you had a wonderful Christmas and enjoy the rest of your break!

  6. Eeek - an ingrowing eyelash?! Man, that sounds painful! Glad she's okay now though.

    I love house parties - we had one last night and it was a roaring success! Karaoke is always a good thing in my book, too. :)

  7. I know what you mean about not knowing what day it is!! Hehe. Glad you're having a good Xmas break hun :) xxx
