Weekly Catch-up & Weekly Goals | Week 2

Hello folks! Happy Monday. Another week is done and a new one is upon us. Lets see how I did last week, eh?

Weekly Catch-up & Weekly Goals | Week 1

The first week of July is officially done! It's been a bit of a mixed bag to be honest. I've been really emotional, what with stress of wanting a new job but not finding anything, Charlie's birthday coming up and also my dearly departed dad's birthday this month too. It's hit me in the feels a lot earlier this month than it usually does, and I'm definitely struggling.

Botanical Bliss | Home Improvement

We have finally made some real progress in our bedroom! If you want to catch up on previous posts, you can read them under Home & Living

The room was officially clear of crap and it was time to get serious. We headed over to Homebase and spent forever picking out a colour for the walls. Originally we were going in for a dark blue but ended up getting a gorgeous dark green - Botanical Noir by Elle Decoration. We also picked up Absolute Granite.

July Goals

Well, June was a bit of a bust. Jury Service was a trip but thankfully only lasted one week instead of two. I ended up pulling away from everyone instead of spending more time with them and was desperately trying to escape reality by spending all my time playing games and scrolling TikTok. Honestly the only thing I did achieve this month was the DIY in the bedroom.

We have just had a lovely weekend though, going to our local Pride festival and then Viking Fest at Betteshanger Park. Pride was a bit tamer than I had hoped but at least I can officially cross it off my bucket list! Josh has promised me we can go to Brighton Pride or somewhere similar another time! Viking Fest was also pretty tame but for £5 a ticket, the entertainment was pretty good and Charlie loved it, so money well spent I'd say!

7 Things You Need to Know About Jury Service (UK)

Been summoned for jury service and not sure what to expect? Then this is the blog post for you. I recently did jury service and thought I'd share everything I now know so you can be prepared! Don't worry too much though, you will receive a booklet in the post closer to the time of your summons to cover everything, including the best way to get to the court you specifically will be going to.

I did my jury service at Maidstone Crown Court and overall it was a pleasant experience, all the staff I met were really friendly - even the super tall, buff, gruff security guard!

Creating Space | Home Improvement

The wardrobe has been built, next on the list was a big old declutter! I have done a fair bit of decluttering over the last few months but it's all been piled up in the corner, still making the bedroom look messy.

June Goals

May has actually been quite an eventful month! We've celebrated our 5 year anniversary, done a load of DIY, celebrated a first birthday, and looked after 4 crazy dogs for two weeks. No wonder I'm tired! This month I have jury service! I am absolutely dreading it and do not want to go, at all. Sitting in a room full of strangers and having to listen intently to something? Literally my worst nightmare.

Temu Haul

As I said in my Shein haul, I'm probably going to get judged for shopping on Temu as well but the bargains are just too hard to resist!

Shein Haul

I know I'm going to get judged heavily for shopping from Shein but I just can't help it! High street shops just don't do it for me anymore. As the warmer weather is coming, I wanted some new spring/summer clothes but in my new alt. aesthetic. I'm officially done wearing clothes I don't like! 

Everything listed below is a size 16/XL.

Half Term Activities

Half term has begun and I'm determined to fill it with fun things for little man and I. I thought I'd share a little list of everything we want to get up to over the next week. Unfortunately I do still have to work so he'll be with the childminder for a couple of hours but we can still do fun things in-between!

Bedroom Wishlist

For some reason we decided to go for a bright blue in the bedroom when we first moved in. We immediately knew it was a mistake but we carried on regardless and the plan always was to redecorate anyway. Josh's brother made his bedroom black and dark green and I absolutely love it. I find it so calming and peaceful in there so when Josh said I had free range in the bedroom, I immediately knew what I wanted to do. Obviously I went straight onto Pinterest for more ideas!
