The Sunday Post: An Unproductive Weekend

Today the fact that I’ve washed my hair and got dressed has been nothing short of a miracle. I might have gotten back in to bed 15 minutes later – but nether the less, progress has been made. This weekend is the definition of a lazy weekend – no blog prep, no video editing, i’m just having a semi weekend off blogging to do boring normal people things like watch Rugby and eat food. Normal service will resume next weekend – brownie promise.

01. Yesterday the boy and I took a leaf out of Essie (of Essiebutton)’s book and made grilled cheese sandwiches. They. Were. Too. Good. It’s been a long time since I made one and I don’t think I will wait that long ever again. Even Joshs little dog Dyan wanted a piece of the action. (Side note: he looks cute but inside he’s a little rascal sometimes!)

02. We had a little speedy shopping trip yesterday afternoon – a quest for the perfect new white t-shirt is on! – and I ended buying some dungarees and a Topshop lipstick in Brighton Rock – cannot wait to crack them both out for work tomorrow.

03. Over the past few days I’ve caught up on the whole of The Walking Dead season 3 (so far) I’m so unbelievably excited for the next one – I’m not even scared about it finishing either and I’m also super excited for Game of Thrones to start again at the end of March – so much good TV!

04. It’s worth noting that I have done nothing today except sitting in bed eating donuts, cookies and steak sandwiches… I need to go for a run stat – and stop eating cookies without a plate – my keyboard is littered with chocolate cookie crumbs. DOH! On the bright side I did do something slightly productive yesterday and updated my Blog Roll! Hopefully you’ll find some new blogs in there you haven’t come across yet.

It’s taken me a good two hours to write this (Oops) I think right now I might take my own good advice and walk the cookies off! (I’m also going to catch up on a ton of YouTube videos when I’m back so leave me your favourites below!) I hope all of you have had much more productive weekends than I have!

    My morning hasn't been that productive either. Woke up at 7, went back to bed until 10:30, watched cartoons… haha. I saw Essiebutton's grilled cheese tutorial too, I've been craving for some ever since! Will be checking out your blogroll~

      I did the same but pre bedtime as well! Fell asleep at 10:30, napped until 11:30 – bed at 2am – up at 8am but went back to sleep until 10:30. This is what weekends are for!

      I haddn't noticed! – The Sunday Posts are very rarely given a thorough proof read! That was a brilliant spelling mistake!

    I've done nothing but catch up on youtube videos and blog post today. And I laughed that you misstyped t-shirt into t-shit lol Yeah, that was probably the highlight of my day!

    Sometimes you just really need those sorts of weekends to do nothing and recharge. Life can really burn you out after a while!

    Thank you so much for updating your blogroll. I found some amazing new reads through it!

    The second I saw your photo I was like "what a coincidence, Essiebutton's last video was about grilled cheese" LOL
