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…
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.
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.
