Sunday Digest: Another year older…

Happy Birthday

This week I have been…

Pondering how best to deal with employment agencies * Enjoying yummy packed lunches at work * Celebrating Mother’s Day on a budget * Working hard in the new ‘day job’…but making an effort to be less tardy with my blogging * Enjoying my new ‘commute’ home (a twenty-minute walk along the canal towpath don’t cha know!) * Thinking about how to set the date for a wedding * Celebrating my birthday * Feeling that my shoe collection is totally inadequate after reading this post on lifestyle/flash * Staring in amazement at this baby shower on Liberty London Girl *


Sunday Digest: Brain Drain

This week I…

* Completed my first full week in the office in my new ‘day job’ * Thought my head was going to explode with all of the information I was taking in through all of the training at said ‘day job’ * Caught up on the day-to-day * Had my hair cut and styled for the first time in six months * Ordered me some more contact lenses * Went out for a yummy curry with my bestie * Got more freebies * Made plans for my birthday (next weekend) * Resolved to start blogging more frequently (which is why I’m currently typing away whilst languishing in bed like an anti-social kid during the school holidays).

Sunday Digest: The Week I Got a New Job

Margo from Despicable Me

This was the week I…

* Got a new job! * Received beautiful flowers from Mr Love of my Life * Treated us to Chinese Take Out * Watched Despicable Me on DVD and discovered I bear more than a passing resemblance to Margo * Thought about how to write the perfect cover letter for that job application * Made a delicious dinner of Marmalade and Soy Duck – yum * Wondered if you had an engagement party? * Tried out Olay Total Effects Sensitive Moisturiser thanks to Savvy Circle * Wrote my birthday list * Ignored my Feng Shui guide *

How’s your week been?

Sunday Digest: Hibernation

This was the week I…

* Hibernated from the freezing temperatures (but secretly loved the snow) * Experienced the rush of extreme drama and the lull of the totally mundane at my temping assignment * Discussed how to apply for your dream job * Started reading Memoirs of a Geisha – brilliant – how had that book passed me by? * Watched lots and lots of The Big Bang Theory – geek, yet not so chic, hilarious though * Came up with some new ideas for the blog (watch this space) * Sold another book on Green Metropolis * Wondered how you told (or would tell) your nearest and dearest about your engagement * Have been inspired by Gala Darling’s blog… again * Dealt with some job agencies – some good, some awful * Exercised – for free! * Wanted to go back to Paris thanks to the photos on Life/Style/Flash (well jel!) * Believed in the power of Feng Shui * Wanted to stop looking like Chewbacca * Consumed a lot of calories in an attempt to stay toasty * Worked my way through a monster to do list, before rewarding myself with food at Frankie and Benny’s * Drank far too much hot chocolate *

How was your week?
