Happy Sunday my lovelies, and to all of my mums out there, happy mothers day (goes to you too superhero dads). What a surprise it is to be writing on a Sunday. Truth be told this was meant to be up yesterday but I had about a million and one things to do and I just didn’t have the time. Yesterday was just an overly stressful day, so when it came to 6pm and I realised I didn’t have a post ready, I kind of had the f**k it attitude.
Today thankfully has been the total opposite, I don’t think I have ever felt this chilled. I haven’t really done much today either and I have genuinely enjoyed the peace. I woke up at 9am which was a huge lie in for me considering I have been waking up at 4am then again at 7am each morning. I took my antibiotics for my hand (which is getting better, I am on the strongest tablets they can order in and the swelling is finally disappearing. I just have a purple hand at the moment), made a cup of tea and a bowl of coco pops and chilled on the sofa for half an hour, just taking my time.
Mum spent the morning at work, so I gave her, her present a few days ago, I brought her a grey tie dress and she actually liked it which was a total sock and I brought her an organiser pad. It’s not a lot compared to what I have seen other people buy for their mums but her birthday is in May and I am planning something big! Besides, my mum is super unbothered, just buy her a £4 bottle of wine and give her some peace and quiet and she will love you forever. Little does she know that at the end of the month I am treating her to a meal, so she gets to wear her new dress!
I did a few jobs around the house such as putting the shoes on the shoe rack (my siblings enjoy just dumping them on the stairs and wait for someone to trip over them), hand the coats up (again, we are just a lazy bunch, we hang our coat at the bottom of the stairs because “it’s easier to find”) and I did the hovering. Doesn’t seem like a lot but we all had jobs to do (after all there are 5 kids in the house, 6 if I include my dad). After I completed my jobs I decided it was time to head back upstairs and just chill in my room.
I decided that it was time to do my skincare around 10:30am because why not, so that’s what I did, I used some new products that I was gifted (reviews to come in a few weeks) and then I jumped into bed to catch up on some posts that I missed last night. I then decided to find my notebook and carry on with ideas for posts, I believe I am now set until 2036! Obviously there are posts that will be the same over the years, but the actual content of the posts will differ. I am dead set on making this a job but I also want to stay true to myself and not upload content that has no reflection on who I am and what I believe in.
I did a bit of reading too, I am currently juggling three books! It’s hard, I wont lie, but it’s great fun. I am reading a book ready to review for a brand and I am loving it! I am also reading a book my mum wants me to review on my blog because she enjoyed it and the author requested the readers to do a review. She believed that people will listen to my opinion because I am a blogger, I don’t really have the heart to tell her that my blog isn’t that successful. The third book I am reading is Wilde like me by Louise Pentland and I love it. I feel a lot of Louise’s personality through the book, I am looking forward to her second book which I believe she is currently working on (don’t hold me to that! I could be wrong, after all at the moment she is having a lot of mummy time with her gorgeous new-born ((newish born)) Pearl).
I have decided to delete my vlogs from my channel (again) but this time I have a great reason why, well it’s not actually great, but I have decided to take this whole YouTuber, blogger thing seriously (more serious then before is what I mean) and as of April I will be creating some great content vlogs and instead of using my phone I will be using a camera! I’m stepping the game up! Why April? Well I wanted to start fresh at the beginning on a month and April is the next month in line so why not then. I will certainly not be the next Zoella, but this year I really am putting myself out of my comfort zone and I feel like I am growing into a person I never thought I could be.
I have genuinely been in a good mood today, I think I am still having the butterfly effect from last night (I made some plans and I am actually excited for them to happen. 5 years ago these plans would have set me back into a dark, deep place that would have made me o some real stupid things, but here we are! I’m doing it!) I feel a little tired but I haven’t been able to keep someone off my mind and it’s just kept my mood up. Even my horoscope is on my side (check my Instagram stories to see what I am talking about).
After I have finished writing this, I will be filling out my weekly planner for Mays posts then I will be heading downstairs for a roast chicken. I am actually buzzing for my roast! I’m having Brussel sprouts (my ultimate faves), carrots and cabbage. Stuffing, homemade roasties, and Yorkshire puddings. It’s the little things in life that keep me happy. Then for dessert we have apple and sultana sponge.
After that I plan on going for a quick shower (TMI but I really need to shave my legs), make another cup of tea, wrap up in my dressing gown and spend the evening cosied up in bed catching up on some vlogs that I have missed this week. I don’t plan on doing much more then that to be honest with you. I have thoroughly enjoyed my lazy me day and I feel I totally deserve it. I know tomorrow will be back to another hectic work filled day so I am taking full advantage.
Overall, my day has been fab, I haven’t stressed about anything, I haven’t overdone it with work things. I think I am going to treat myself to these days more often. I am feeling the positive vibes and I am loving it.
That is all for my post lovelies, I could go on and on about how great today has been but I am sure that would bore the crap out of you, and me when I read this back. Thank you all so much for taking time to read my post, I hope you enjoyed it, if you did, leave a like and let me know in the comments how your day has been and how you have celebrated mothers day.
I hope you all have a wondering evening and I will see you again tomorrow,
