So. Where the hell have I been? Here I am after my week (and a bit) away from blogging feeling (semi-)refreshed and ready to get back into action. This was the first blogging break I’ve taken since January when I started taking it WAY more seriously, and I think it’s done me good. So now I’m back, raring to go with a load more plans in the work and I’m excited! I’ve even got the Bloggers Who Brunch launch to go to tomorrow, how exciting is that??
So we should probably backtrack a bit. The last time we spoke was over the easter, so let’s go from there! On the Sunday we went to see Fast and Furious 8, which, I’ll be honest, I thought was going to be terrible, but I LOVED IT. Joe and I went for a lovely (if cold) day out to Brighton, where we managed to eat our way from pier to the lanes and back again. I swear all food just tastes better when you’re in Brighton.
That was the end of the good parts of my week though, unfortunately. As soon as we got home from Brighton, I felt a sharp pain in my eyes and bang, that’s the rest of my week ruined. After an attempt of a day in work on Tuesday, I was back at home feeling VERY sorry for myself with conjunctivitis. Magical. (Which also means I haven’t been able to wear makeup. *internal crying*) And just to make things a little bit worse, feeling super lightheaded and breathless. As soon as I got home, I laid down on my passed out. For four hours. Now that’s how you know something’s not right. Queue three more days off and a number of trips to the doctors. Fun fun fun. I’m terrible at being off ill. I get painfully bored.
So that’s where a lovely Lush bath or five comes in handy, right? Sadly not at my usual level of cosiness since I was warned not to have my bath too hot since I keep fainting. So, a lukewarm lush bubble bar was the remedy while I dealt with the REST of my problems. Seriously, think I’ve had one of the worst weeks ever.
Not only have I contested with the most frustrating not-illness illness (the kind where you don’t actually feel ill, but you most definitely in fact are), I’ve been dealing with stress coming from people I don’t even know. But completely un-shockingly, from the hell hole I used to work – where Joe still works. A teenage girl that works in the office with Joe has recently taken a – liking – to him. Messages, snapchats, phonically at midnight, just to add to my stress. But luckily, I have some of the best friends we’ve initiated a two-step plan. While Joe has told her to maybe slightly (totally) calm it, my friend James has used his matchmaking skills to low-key set her up with one of his friends. Although now it’s working and he’s just angry that he has to be a third/fifth/seventh(?!) wheel.
But now, here I am, still at home ill with some more doctors appointments and hoping this dizziness stops before the blogger event. Wish me luck!
