Oh look, yet another bloody snow storm. And yep, it’s mid-March. Urgh. Can it just go away now? It’s supposed to be warming up these days. I’m so over the cold.

I am writing this from the living room floor, wrapped up in one of my blankets, whilst snow decorates the world outside in a blanket of cold shit and Finding Dory plays on the TV in the background. I must admit, the snow is quite beautiful and Christmas card worthy, but my god I am so over this cold weather now. The kids might be sleeping over tonight, which means I will be sharing my bed with my niece Poppi and I’m looking at the possibility of no work tomorrow. Again. Urgh. Anyway, weather woes aside, let’s throw in another weekly catch-up…

Jake Bugg

I love Jake Bugg. I’ve loved him since I heard his debut album back in 2012 and was fortunate to get to see him killing on the main stage in front of 50,000 people at the Isle of Wight Festival back in 2013. So when I saw that he was touring and was coming down this way, I jumped on buying some tickets to see him. As it turned out, my friend couldn’t go as unfortunately she got suspected strap throat, so I took my mum instead. I was pleased about that, sorry Soph. Better company and I was able to get home much easier. Plus I was glad that mum got to see him, because she’s always talked about how talented he is, ever since I showed her his first album, one Christmas. He was fantastic and it was really great to hear him singing acoustically in a more intimate setting. He was vocals flawless as expected and he is beyond talented with a guitar so it really was a blessing. It was great to see how much he has vocally matured in the past five years and he did a great mix of songs from all of his albums. I have written a blog post on another blog of mine due to go out tomorrow, at the time of posting (19/3) which you can find Here

Noodles, lots of cups of tea, nattering and catch ups

This week I managed to catch up with my really good friend Soph R, which turned out to be a really nice evening after work and worked out nicely as mum does yoga on a Thursday night anyway so I could stay out a bit later without feeling bad for making her wait around for me and I didn’t have to walk home in the dark and pissing down rain.

We ended up popping into the museum for about half an hour before it shut, before we popped into The Waterstones Cafe and had pot of tea, a cookie and a good old natter before popping over to my new favourite noodle place and stuffed our faces with some great food and green tea. It was fantastic.

Feeling unproductive all week

This week has felt a little bit odd really. I would say that it was a mixture of a few things. For example, as much as I enjoyed Jake Bugg’s concert, mum and I didn’t get home until nearly midnight so I felt quite tired for the rest of the week. Also, this might be a bit too much information, but I think my period is coming on, which is making me quite sluggish. It’s been a long week.

Saying goodbye to June

June was one of the people who interviewed me for my job position. She’s also lovely and very passionate, so I was sad to see her go. I was quite close with her and I owe her a lot for finally giving me the opportunity that was desperate for. I’m sad to see her go, but at the same time, I’m pleased for her as she’s been looking forward to retiring for a while.


What a player. And what a man. He is just a fantastic footballer and so humble. On Saturday he managed to score 4 goals and get one assist in Liverpool 5:0 home demolition of Watford. The goals he scored were sublime, especially the ones where he took on four defenders and made them look silly. It literally looked like a 5-a-side game where he was on his own. 😄

He’s an incredible footballer and I’m so pleased that he plays for my club. The nicest thing though was he apologised to Watford’s keeper for putting 4 past him. Bless him. I love him.

Snow, again

And, would you look at that. It’s bloody snowing, again. 🙄 I don’t get it, it’s March. It’s supposed to be Spring and getting lighter and sunnier, not grey and stuck in a snow globe. I’m over the snow now, this is taking the piss. Plus, the kids are now stuck at our house for the night, which as fun as it is, they’re already annoying me and it’s only 2:06pm. 😄 It doesn’t look like I’ll be getting into work tomorrow as mum’s car has been left down at her work, so I guess that’s a perk and everyone is safe inside.

I’m now off to possibly hang out with the kids. There’s a big game of Monopoly Junior happening, which is always dangerous territory. We’ve already had tears and some shouting and screaming so hopefully we all survive the game and there’s not World War Three in this house.

I’m hoping to see some form of boxset this afternoon, and of course a bubblebath and a roast will happen tonight.

How’s your week been?

Until next Sunday.

Love, hugs and pugs,


Ps Again like every single Sundaze style post this one is a bit of a trial and error really. I know it needs tidying up and it’s a bit rough at the moment, but hopefully I can get into a nice little zone with this soon. As well as my blog. For the time being though, at least I’m getting some words down and out there. Also, yes I shall start adding photos into this at some point. Bare with me please.



Let’s be honest, everyone has pet peeves. They’re usually silly, small things, that literally do not affect our lives, but they still manage to piss us off in some way. Take the recent snow for example. Yes it does look beautiful, and looks great on social media. But, let’s be honest it’s a huge inconvenience. Plus very cold and quite dangerous. The recent snow, plus a work training day for conflict management where we discussed things that we really dislike has lead me to thinking, why not share my list of a few things that grind my gears in the hope that I am not alone…1| Train windows being opened in winterWhy the fuck would you do that? Especially in the morning when it’s bloody freezing. There’s no escape from the cold air either. It just blows all the way down the train. 2| People who push at standing up concertsAgain. Why? I get it, you want to be near the front, but you should have arrived earlier. Simple. Not only is that dangerous, but it’s also stressful as hell. Being small in stature and standing at a grand total of 5’1 inches, I’m an easy target for people who want to try their luck. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve kicked people at concerts for doing that. Playing football for 18 years has it’s advantages sometimes because people leave you alone after that. Give me a seat at a concert any time. 3| People who drive dangerously on motorwaysThis is just stupid and incredibly dangerous. I’ve lost count over the years how many times I’ve seen people dangerously pull out all of a sudden and zip in between cars at high speeds and it’s scary to watch. Not only are they putting their own lives in danger, but also others. 4| Slow computersThis has got to be a first world problem, but honestly slow computers can be the bane of my life. Especially when I’m working on a piece of work and the computer decides not to load up anything you need to work with. 5| Half and half football scarfsI just don’t really understand why half and half football scarfs exist. It just makes you look terribly confused at where your loyalties lie. I don’t know about other football fans, but I passionately love Liverpool and I would not be seen dead wearing another club’s colours (unless it’s Torquay United). I especially wouldn’t attend a match wearing both clubs on one scarf. As far as I’m concerned, half and half football scarfs can get in the bin. 6| Un-informed football optionsOk I must admit, I take far too much enjoyment out of proving people wrong on social media, such as on Twitter and The Sky Sports Facebook page. Especially those backwards men who still think it’s the 1950s and women should be in the kitchen and not talking about football. That’s the sweetest of them all. However, I must admit, it annoys me when people sprout shit without doing a little bit of research first. If you’re going to sprout shit, please look up the facts first. Jeeze. 7| People who think it’s ok to make sexist/racist/homophobic jokes and commentsThis is something that I still feel really passionate about. I don’t understand why it’s 2018 and we still live in a world where people think it’s ok and acceptable to make jokes and comments regarding people’s race, gender, sexuality, religion etc. It’s not funny and it shouldn’t be acceptable in society. 8| HypocritesFor the record, this was my example that I used at the training morning, but I could have used quite a few examples. I guess I just can’t stand those people who think it’s ok to treat someone a certain way, but can’t stand it if they get treated that same way back. Or those people who can give banter, but can’t take it. Like those people who think it’s ok to behave a certain way, but can’t handle it if they’re treated the same way back. As far as I am concerned. Don’t give, what you can’t take. People who can’t handle alcohol/takes it too farNot that I drink all that often, but alcohol can be fun if not taken too far and if people know their limits, but there’s always that one person who gets blind drunk, embarrassing and ends up ruining the night for everyone else. That’s when the line has been crossed. Especially those guys who get creepy and make everyone around them feel uncomfortable. By all means, let lose, drink have fun, just don’t cross the line between fun and ridiculous sloppy drunk because that’s when the fun stops. People who aren’t old and call me loveJust don’t. You’re not a cute old person. Why would you call me love? Chewing gum on train seats Now that’s just vile, lazy and bloody selfish. I’ve sat on a few pieces of gum and not only is it disgusting, but it’s ruined my clothes. Put it in the bin people. People who park over our drive despite the fact we have a line in placeThis is one of my biggest pet peeves. Selfish selfish people. Not only is it really dangerous anyway – our drive is on the edge of the park which can be a dangerous part of the road, but also, it makes mum feel really nervous pulling out of her drive and that’s just not very fair. The line is there for a reason people, respect it and stop being so selfish. Also, I am not afraid to write any, passive aggressive notes on your car. So there you have it. Here’s a list of a few of the things that really do grind on my gears. Relate? Let me know in the comments below. Until next time. Love, hugs and pugs. Keri.

A few cheeky reasons why Mondays are pretty awesome

I must admit, as far as this particular Monday goes, this one isn’t too shabby given that I’m off to see one of my favourite singers Jake Bugg after work tonight so I’m in a good mood for a Monday morning. It’s also not raining, which makes a nice change as it usually rains on a Monday, which could not be any more Monday if it tried. But actually truth be told, I don’t hate Mondays. I mean, it’s easy to see why the first day of the week isn’t everyone’s favourite day, and it does gets such a bad rap. However, there are plenty of reasons to embrace it.A chance at a clean slate – The start of the week, regardless of what happened last week at work or school, it probably doesn’t matter this week. If you go into every week with a kick-ass positive mindset, you’ll find any worries from last week melting away. So go and pick a killer work outfit/make your favourite lunch/start your Monday off with a banging breakfast or a coffee from your favourite mug and own the day, and the rest of the week. You just had the weekend – I mean, unless you work weekends (I’m sorry if you do, I’ve been there), then we all know that weekends are awesome. I know Mondays seem so far away to the weekend, than the weekend is to a Monday, but there’s no need to hate on a Monday. If anything, you should feel fresh-faced and raring to go after a good Sunday rest. If not, I suggest a good bubblebath, personally, they work a treat for me every week. I am a big fan. Planning a killer work outfit -I am one of those people who likes to give an illusion that I have my life together (I probably don’t do that and I certainly don’t give off that impression, but a girl can try!) But, having an idea of what you’d like to wear on a Monday morning/and the rest of the week, really helps makes you feel like you have your shit together every Monday. And if you don’t, like me most Mondays, there is no shame in throwing an outfit together blurry eyed. Your hair is probably clean and bath/shower fresh – Let’s be honest, every Monday everyone turns up to work smelling of shampoo and body lotion of some description. You can’t beat feeling like a boss with clean hair. Beautiful.You get to catch up on the goss – Even if I have the most tamest weekend ever, it’s always really fun hearing all about what your colleagues/school mates got up to over the weekend.Even if the rest of week isn’t all you want it to be, there’s another weekend at the end of it – I mean, even if you love your job, like I do, sometimes knowing that you have two whole days to do exactly what you’d like to do is the best feeling. I mean there’s nothing like coming home on a Friday night and spending the next 48 hours slobbing around in your PJs with a good chunky box set, or making plans for adventures. Anyway, have a good week and don’t forget to own this Monday and every other Monday that comes your way. And if it all goes tits up, just remember, it’s only four more days until the weekend. Until next time,Love, hugs and pugs. Keri.


It’s always you and I against the world

Hi Mum,

Happy Mother’s Day. Words are never enough to describe how lucky I am to get to call you mum, nor to explain how thankful I am every day to you for all the things you do for me, big and small. But you know me mum, I’ll try anyway. So I apologise for the soppy words that are about to come your way.

I know that I am incredibly lucky to have you in my life mum and our relationship is something that I have and will always cherish. The older I have gotten, the more I have began to appreciate how much you do for me and how much you have sacrificed for me. I am really proud of you for continuing to show me how to follow your dreams, especially when you finally walked away from your horrible bosses who never appreciated you, whilst you worked your arse off and stressed over them, just for them to not even appreciate it.

I love the fact that you are following your dreams every day, getting your own art studio and getting to make beautiful mosaics all day, every day and not slaving away to people who do not appreciate you. You deserve the world mum.

Despite it all, you’re still putting me and everyone else first. You still wake up at 6am every day with me to make sure that I make the train to work on time and I always know that whenever I step foot off the train in the evening, that you will be there in your car, waiting for me to get home.

I love that you’re always there for me, even when I was over on the other side of the world in Australia or four hours away in London, you were there for me on the end of the phone or on FaceTime to chat to and catch up or if I was down and needed a prep talk. I love that fact that I can always rely on you for your love and support.

Not only are you my mum, but you’re also my best friend and I thank my lucky stars every day for you mum. I know you think that I have love Tourettes for you, but sometimes I can’t help myself. I’m not ashamed to annoy you every fiveseconds with self proclaiming love declarations, even if it does get annoying for you.

I’ll never stop being thankful for you mum and everything that you do for me. I don’t know where I’d be today without you mum, but I know that I wouldn’t be the person I am now. And I’m proud of the you mum. I am so proud to call you my best friend and my mum.

I love you lots mum.

Love from your daughter,

Keri. Xxxxx

This week, I have felt tired. Not enough sleep and not enough hours in each day to do what I’d like to can do that to a girl.

One of my overarching problems is that I dream of more and know that I can achieve all that I want to if I work for it, and so I am more than happy to put in the long hours and the daily grind to be successful, but honestly I don’t know how people do it? How do people work and commute long hours every day and still fit in time to cook healthy meals, have a good gym/workout routine, a social life, time to read, time to complete boxsets and series and get plenty of sleep? Like there’s simply not enough hours in the day.This week though, I’m hoping to work on a better routine. Hopefully I’ll manage to finally complete Gossip Girl, I love the show but it feels awfully dragged out as I’ve been watching it since at least October. I’m also hoping to cook more, swim and finish my book. Watch this space on that.Anyway, on to this week…

Food and banter

This week, well more like Tuesday was great for food. I really enjoyed finally getting a cheeky Nandos with my college pals, well more like Mollie who is the much better one, (sorry T), after trying to convince them to come with me since September. Also, you can’t beat a Nandos wrap with a side of grilled haloumi cheese and creamy mash. Beautifully banging.

I also had a really nice catch up with my really good friend Lydia and her cute guide dog Bertie, who were down for a few days and my best friend Livy, whenever the three of us (four if you include Bertie) get together the banter just flows and it’s brilliant. Also, I ended up getting some very nice tacos and it was just an awesome afternoon where everyone was laughing, including randoms on the train.

Exploring the new IKEA before it’s opened to the general public

This week I had good fun exploring the brand new IKEA in a team of people from work, which was super cold, but also super fun so it was good fun. We got to go on a two hour tour, seeing how all the rooms pan out and watching them being created in the process. I made a joke that it was a great fun tour, but it was a little draughty and I was a little bit disappointed that I didn’t get a free flat pack.

Training days

On the Friday I did a training day through work over at one of the other work sites with some of the other apprentices. It was on conflict management, and was really interesting. I’m trying to make the most of as many opportunities that come my way as possible, especially as I can use them all in my college OneFile. It made a nice change to be away from the office – as much as I love my job and it meant that I got to learn new things and even get to go home really early, which made a nice change.

I’m now off to hang out with Will, finish this episode of Greys, do a little bit of maths before tomorrow and write up a couple of blogs now and later a bubblebath and a roast will be on the cards. I am also hope I’ll manage a bit of a workout later as hello flabby belly.

How’s your week been?

Until next Sunday.

Love, hugs and pugs,


Ps Again like every single Sundaze style post this one is a bit of a trial and error really. I know it needs tidying up and it’s a bit rough at the moment, but hopefully I can get into a nice little zone with this soon. As well as my blog. For the time being though, at least I’m getting some words down and out there. Also, yes I shall start adding photos into this at some point. Bare with me please.


Twenty things that I am grateful for everyday

For once I would love to switch on the news and see that nothing bad had happened somewhere in the world, which is sadly impossible. There is so much negativity going on in the world right now, which really saddens and disappoints me. I honestly do weep for humanity. With yet more school shootings happening over in America, Trump being Trump and people only caring about themselves (yes Teressa May I am mostly talking about you) etc, the world is a currently sad place to be.

However, the positive bean in me wants to focus on the good things in life, despite all the dark and crap going on, so I thought that I would compile a list of every day positive things to be grateful of to take out of my day when the helplessness of the news and the world gets too much.

1. My Mum – I honestly have the most kind, selfless and big hearted mother in the world and I am beyond blessed to be able to call her mum. I have never met such a hard-working, selfless and kind person.

Every day she puts me first despite the fact that I tell her that she shouldn’t revolve her day around me, waking up at 6am every day to drop me off at the station so that I don’t miss my train for work and coming to pick me up from the station at the end of the day. She makes me sandwiches in the morning and will drop anything if I need her. (I don’t take advantage of this fact). She is a wonderful person and I don’t know where I would be without her. She is my role model, inspiration and best friend and I am lucky to have her in my life.

2. Amazing family and friends-

I am very blessed to have such an incredible support network around me and also all over the world. My family are wonderful and every day I am very grateful to have them in my life. My friends are my tribe. The family I chose.These people are the ones who will always be there, no matter what, or where they are in the world. These people are the ones I turn to in a crisis or just for a laugh and a catch up. These are the people who create memories with me that I will remember, treasure and laugh at for the rest of my life. These people are the people I will always love.

3. Liverpool (my team).

I often joke that supporting Liverpool is like being married to someone who annoys the crap out of you, but at the end of the day, you just bloody love them. They annoy me, they make me incredibly happy, I get excited to see them. Yep, at the end of the day, Liverpool Football Club no matter what, win, lose or draw, is an endless love affair. They have always been a part of my life, and always will. The players may change, the manager may change, the kits may change, but Liverpool is a part of me. I’m grateful to be a football fan and being able to experience the ups, downs and memories that supporting a football club every season.

3. My health.

I am really fortunate that I’m healthy and as far as I’m aware I have no standing health problems so I have lots to be grateful for. I seem to have a good immune system, and rarely get ill. Although, the rare cold is enough to turn me into a sorry sod who just wants to wrap myself in a burrito of blankets and hide away from the world because I just feel so rubbish and sorry for myself. Every day I’m grateful to being healthy and happy (97% of the time at least!) I’m also incredibly happy that my family and friends are also in good health.

4. A roof over my head

This is something that many of us take for granted and I know I can be guilty of this. In fact, more recently my job has opened my eyes more to the poor people huddled on street corners in sleeping bags. I’m really fortunate that my parents are letting me live back home with them free of change so that I can save up for the future. Believe me I have tried many times to give my mum some form of rent and she refuses every time.

5. Exercising and sports

I am lucky that I am easily able to do some form of exercise whenever I get a spare moment if I wish to. I’m also lucky that I often am motivated enough to throw on my Nike trainers and go for a run around the park and sea front or go for a swim (currently for free) in my local spa pool. I am fortunate that I don’t really have anything physically stopping me, (injuries etc)

6. My job.

I am so lucky that I’m in a job that I really enjoy going to every day. There’s always lots of opportunities for personal growth, everyone there is lovely and helpful, my team is great and I finally am beginning to feel full filled in my career. Last March I got a job in a bar with unsociable hours, awful pay, I didn’t feel very appreciated and I definitely felt like I could be doing so much more. This job is a million miles away and I’m so grateful every day

7. Netflix –

I know that I am a little cheeky that I have literally been sponging off my friend’s Netflix since 2015, but honestly who doesn’t love having access to Netflix? There’s something really cool about knowing that I have instant access to wide range of TV shows and movies from all over the world at the touch of a button. And of course, you can’t beat the feeling of starting and getting emotionally invested in a TV show that has another five series to go.

8. My bed –

I love my bed. It’s super cosy and the best thing to face plant after a long day at work. It’s also the best thing to starfish in and spread out and do my own thing. It’s also covered in funky bedding, lots of blankets and cushions and I have big puffy new pillows. I also love taking a coffee up to bed with me on a Sunday morning and reading until my heart is content. And of course, you can’t beat wrapping yourself up in a burrito blanket and not moving.

9. Hot drinks –

Oh so simple, but so comforting. Like a hug in a mug. I love starting my day with a cup of coffee and I love ending it with a warm, comforting mug of hot juice. I love treating myself midday to a nice, warm fruit tea when I’m working hard, and the odd cup of quite milky tea is always a nice treat. A hot drink is my go to way to warm up once getting inside after being out in the cold, and my go to when I feel poorly or a little under the weather.

10 Music-

I have a tattoo dedicated to music. I adore music. I love the fact that no matter how you’re feeling, there is always a song out there for you, that understands you. I love discovering new music and falling in love, as well as re-discovering music and falling in love all over again. I love how music is a time portal that can transport people back to a moment in their life. I love the feeling of standing in a sea of people getting lost and sharing a moment with our favourite artists or bands. Everyone connected by music. I love finding a song with lyrics that just get me. Music is just a wonderful thing.

11. Clean sheets –

I love the feeling of diving into a bed with fresh sheets, in fresh PJs, feeling very fresh and relaxed after a bubble bath. It’s such a simple, but amazing feeling. I always make sure to change my bedding on a Sunday morning knowing that I will be getting into it after a bubble bath to make the experience of clean sheets even more enjoyable.

12. Bubble baths-

This one is fairly similar to the above point. However, having a really hot, bubble bath on a Sunday night is my favourite way to end a week and start a new one. I love the feeling of just lying down and relaxing in hot bubbles. I also love that after bubblebath feeling when my skin is warm, smooth and just all round fresh. I love boiling hot showers, but that weekly bubblebath is a one treat that I enjoy every weekend.

13- Roast dinners.

Ah the simply brilliant roast dinner. You can’t get much better than a plate full of crispy potatoes and colourful vegetables, smothered in gravy. I’m very fortunate that both my grandad and dad are amazing cooks and can whip up an amazing roast dinner. I’m also very fortunate that my dad likes to make roasts every Sunday for the grandkids, so I get to enjoy one pretty much every Sunday.

14- Exploring and adventures in new places.

The adventurer with in me loves any opportunity to explore new areas. The first thing I want to do when I get to a place I’ve never been before. I love finding new places to eat and drink, hidden places to explore and new places to see and do. There’s the whole exhilarating feeling of exploring new territories.

15. Going out for breakfasts.

I love having people in my life who are down for spontaneous visits to cafes for breakfasts and chin wags. One of my favourite things to do in Australia a couple of years ago was go out to different cafes with my Auntie and Uncle and enjoy a big breakfast complete with a coffee. At home there’s a little cafe up the road from my house and it’s always exciting when the plans revolve around going out for breakfast. Also, you can’t beat a big plate of a veggie breakfast food complete with a milky coffee. It’s the best way to start any day.

16. Catching up with people over a coffee.

This one is fairly similar to the above one, but let’s be honest, catching up with friends over a big mug of coffee, is a really simply great way to pass the time. I love the hustle and bustle of coffee shops – the sounds, the smell, people watching etc. There’s not much better than good company, a big mug of tasty coffee and no where to be.

17. Sunny days.

There’s something to be said about sunny days that just make everything feel better. There’s something great about walking around with the sun hitting your skin and making everything feel warm and happy. A little bit of sun and lots of problems just seem to disappear. A bit of sun and everywhere just looks brighter and more promising. Also, I love lazy days lying on grass with a book and some music. Or beach days with my friends. I’m so over the grey, cold, miserable wintery March days, bring on the sun.

18. Fresh vegetables and salads.

I adore vegetables. In fact, it’s quite funny, when I was a little kid I was so embarrassed to admit to my friends how much I love vegetables, because you know, at 8 years of age, loving vegetables isn’t the coolest thing ever. So any friends who came to Keri’s house for tea had turkey dinosaurs and chips. However, now, give me all the vegetables (except mushrooms!) I would be more than happy to devour a huge plate of vegetables. Also, I currently love salads, the fresher the better. Also, avocado in the salad. I’m already craving sunny days and fresh salads for lunch on some grass somewhere whilst watching the world go by.

19. Going up to Liverpool to see the family.

Liverpool is home. It always has been. For me, Liverpool is my second home. A place of childhood where I spent many school holidays having adventures with my family. Sadly though, as I’ve gotten older, I haven’t been able to get up there as often as I would like to, because life. But, this year I shall definitely be getting my arse up there because I miss Liverpool and the family. Plus my Grandad, who is an absolute cutie by the way, isn’t getting any younger.

20. New books and getting lost in new worlds.

My book buying is getting out of control. I love reading, I feel very fortunate that I have always loved reading, ever since I was a child. I have always loved the luxury of getting lost in new worlds amongst ink on pages and meeting new characters. I have also always loved the feeling of being able to return back to my ‘friends’ every time I return to a book. I love the smell of books old and new. I love the feeling of pages being turned in my hands. I love picking up new books, knowing that there is a whole new world waiting in there to be explored. I love books.

Enjoy your Monday folks, I hope you find joy in the small things too.

Until next time,

Love, hugs and pugs.

Brrrrr it is mighty chilly today isn’t it!

I definitely could not write a weekly post this week without mentioning the intense weather that has been happening all over England this week. The combination of Beast from the East’ and Storm Emma means that, temperature-wise, it’s been Baltic conditions out there. Also, it snowed down here, it never snows down here.

Anyway, have a cheeky look at some of the stand out moments – good and bad, of my previous week.


So yes, as mentioned above, snow and sub zero temperatures has been the main feature in England this week. I’ve had two days off work because I literally could not leave the house, plus the railway line that I take to work goes right along the sea front where flood defence warnings were in place. In fact, I left the house for the first time in three days yesterday (on Saturday) when we popped over to Sainsburys to restock on food.

Sadly I had a couple of impending deadlines this week and next, so I couldn’t enjoy the snow as I had to actually do some college work. Fun.

Grey’s Anatomy

I started watching Greys last year when I came back from Australia and Sky were showing boxsets free for three months. I managed to catch the final month so was able to watch the first three, almost four series and got absolutely hooked. I decided to treat myself to the first 13 series boxset from HMV after a stressful week last week – exam and co-hosting an award ceremony to 180 people.

I re-watched the first episode yesterday after I didn’t allow myself to watch it until I got my work done. I’m really excited to see the rest. It was a really nice throw back to revisit that world, because honestly I have really missed it.

Hanging out with Will for four days straight

My nephew Will is my little mate. He’s like the little brother that I had always wanted growing up so I’ve always loved him sleeping over at our house. He sleeps over pretty much every Saturday – which is something I always look forward to on the weekend. Due to the snow though, he came over on Thursday evening and hasn’t left since. 😄 I’ve really enjoyed his company though, from him coming into my room for a chat in the morning and hanging out and just having a mate around really. Plus I love family movie nights, even if Starwars dragged last night. I’m going to miss him tonight when he goes back home haha.

I’m now off to hang out with Will, eat some food, and chill out before writing up another blog later, bubblebath, roast and hopefully I’ll manage a few crunchies and sit-ups before bed because I’m getting a little Buddha belly. Maybe I’ll fit in some Greys and Gossip Girl later too.

How’s your week been?

Until next Sunday.

Love, hugs and pugs,


Ps Again like every single Sundaze style post this one is a bit of a trial and error really. I know it needs tidying up and it’s a bit rough at the moment, but hopefully I can get into a nice little zone with this soon. As well as my blog. For the time being though, at least I’m getting some words down and out there. Also, yes I shall start adding photos into this at some point. Bare with me please.
