A 'Me' Weekend

It's been a stressful few weeks. Leaving my old job which I absolutely loved, moving out and in with 5 strangers, starting a new job, travelling back home and questioning daily whether I made the right decision.

So this weekend, I decided to not travel home, and spend the weekend completely by myself. My new house mates are pretty busy people and I don't know many people in the area. But a weekend to my self was just what I needed!


Fully prepared for my 'me' weekend, I picked up some supplies, including a bag of magic stars and some hot chocolate on the way home from work. I went back to my house, and straight into the shower and got into my pyjamas. I then had dinner which was left over curry and mango chutney on toast, because I couldn't be bothered to cook rice. I watched Pride And Prejudice, and went to bed. Bliss.


Saturday was my day to get stuff done. I woke up early, drove to the supermarket and did a food shop (of course, after writing a very detailed meal plan!), did a lot of clothes washing and tidied the kitchen. I then went shopping, bought everything on my list and discovered a new favourite gift/home ware shop which I know I will be buying all of my birthday presents and cards from from now on! I came back, put the kettle on, had some laptop time and then settled on the sofa for Strictly and hot chocolate.


After an amazing sleep and a bit of laptop time re-watching Gossip Girl, I treated myself to a bowl of Krave. I finished tidying my room and read for a little while before meeting up with a friend who I haven't seen since I finished university who happens to live in the town I have moved to. We chatted for 3 and a half hours over smoothies and it was lovely to catch up. I made dinner, helped a house mate with a massive spider and set my alarm ready for Monday.

This weekend was just what I needed, a few chores, some great TV and just a bit of time by myself. I now feel well rested for the week ahead. Let's do this!
