Quick Catch Up & Simple Sunday #4

20 Jul 2014

Hey Lovelies!
I hope you have all had a happy weekend. I've been a bit MIA on the blog front lately. I have no excuses apart from I just didn't feel like blogging and if I force myself to do it the posts would just turn out rubbish and not up to my usual superb standards. That was sarcasm, in case you didn't pick that up haha. Nonetheless, I am kind of sad I didn't do a Simple Sunday last week because that week was SO good and it would have been nice to write about it!

I'm writing this post at 1 am on Saturday night / Sunday morning. I'm at my sisters house babysitting my nieces and nephew and I am all on my lonesome. I don't mind being alone at all, I actually enjoy my own company, it's the boredom that gets me! there is literally nothing on tv apart from repeats of 'The Big Bang Theory', which I've seen a zillion times before. So I started reading a new book 'Looking for Alaska' by John Green to pass some time. Have any of you read it? I would love to know if you think it's good or not. I was pretty disappointed by John Greene's 'The Fault in Our Stars', it was good and all, I mean I finished it in 3 days which is quick for me so it's obviously a page turner but it really did not live up to the hype at all for me. Maybe I'll do a book review on here, that would be something different for my blog eh?!

Anywayyys, on to filling you all in on the simple things that made my week this week!
  • Going for long walks down a quiet country road whilst listening to the radio on my phone has been something that I have really enjoyed doing this week. It's good to just escape from the world and have some 'me' time. The pictures you see above were taken on my walk. I walk down a dead end road, at the end of which is a pond.
  • Getting all dolled up and going out with friends on Friday night was a lot of fun. The night did not go quite to plan, the nightclub was really bad, it was basically empty so we left, we all got pizza (which was the most Amazing pizza I have ever tasted, I had to put a capital A for amazing there haha) and went home early. I definitely think getting such delicious pizza is a win though!
  • My friend and I went out for dinner on Tuesday night to a lovely little Italian place. I had some gorgeous pasta, (I am sounding like such a fatie in this post haha) and we had a great chat about what is going on in each others lives.
  • My little Nephews apparent interest in a future career in carpentry really made me smile this week too as he was so eager to help my dad make a picnic bench.
  • Hot days this week have been such a pleasure too. It hasn't been too hot, just perfect if you ask me. God, I love summer!
I would love to hear about the little things that added a certain spark to your week! I feel very out of the blogging loop at the moment, hopefully I will get a chance to catch up on my bloglovin' feed over these next few days.

Love you all,

I am feeling so happy with life as I sit here writing this. I have the house to myself, a lovely cup of hot chocolate, I'm listening to 'Imagine Dragons' and uploading picture of my friends and I to Facebook. Life is good.

Here are some of the things that have happened this week that have contributed to my happiness.
  • On Tuesday my 7 year old niece and I went in to the city together. It's the first time we have gone to the city just the two of us so it was really lovely. We went shopping in Penneys, got some 99 ice cream cones and took a walk down along the canal. It was an absolutely beautiful day and it was so gorgeous there with the ducks siting along the side of the canal. It was so peaceful and lovely. 
  • Tuesday evening was also so much fun. I went tag rugby training with my friends. We really just had the craic (fun, not the drug for all you non-Irish people) and we were all very silly and hyper. There was also some hilarious injuries which I'm sure the victims didn't find so funny haha. 
  • On Wednesday I spent the whole day with my friend. We went to the discount store to buy some things for a fancy dress party I was going to. We then went to see Mrs Browns Boys in the cinema which was hilarious. We had such a laugh, everyone else in the cinema was over 60. We spent the rest of the evening at his house chilling out, it was probably the best day of the week :)
  • On Thursday night there was a fancy dress party at the rugby club. Each team had a different theme. We went with Father Ted, although some of the guys decided to just do what they want going as a pirate, a cow and the likes! Most of the girls including me went as the lovely girls. Every team had to do a skit out on the pitch which was judged. Ours was so unprepared and hilarious. There was some really funny ones. I then got to dance all night with my friends to some really great splitting songs including songs from 'Greece', 'Happy' by Pharell Williams. It was great because we had a pretend microphone with us which we all sang in to. It was a happy night. I love my friends. 
  • Another simple thing that made me laugh this week was my dad cutting my nephews hair with his razor. You should have seen his little face, he loved it!
Looking back, this week was actually a lot better than I realised. I have some exciting plans for next week too, I can't wait to see how it pans out!

I would love to hear what made your week this week too!
