1. A road trip with the girls was the first adventure on my agenda. Just what the doctor ordered, complete with champagne and dancing shoes, there's really nothing quite like letting your hair down with some of your favourite gal pals and then blasting back up the motor way with an overlarge pair of sunnies. I still haven't mustered up the courage to look at my camera roll, and only in time will I be able to even glimpse at another glass of bubbly.
2. Then just like that, my poor grandmother (otherwise known as the biggest CGFB fan gurl) was rushed into hospital with heart problems. Being incredibly close to my grandparents, it came as quite the shock. That being said I have spent the majority of the weekend keeping an 80 year old troublemaker out of mischief and under control with the bribery of sweets and iPad browsing. She is set to have a rather big op on Tuesday, which hopefully will have her coming out even more naughty.
3. Which brings me to say, that in times of need, it makes you so much more grateful for the friends and loved ones who reach out to you no matter what. With my pesky chest pains (which are still proving to be a medical mystery), and now the worry of grandmother - it really has been a learning curve of which friends make an effort to turn your frown upside down. From a simple 'hey' to a last minute pizza date, be it a long lost friend who touches base from time to time, or your most called on speed dial, it's only in time of need do you appreciate your most supported network. And for those, I am eternally grateful too.
On a slightly lighter note, last week saw the arrival of a few sneaky wardrobe additions. Some of you may have spied on my instagram, don't ask me how but I won a cracking £500 voucher for Warehouse through a competition which resulted in a mini spree and a rather loud scream whilst checking my email in the office. In other news, my gym attendance has been slack, this may be due to my new found hatred of spin - how does one person even have that much sweat? Ick. And, I also managed to bag tickets to Star Wars Secret Cinema - even bigger scream!
Is that everything? I think so. Over and out!
