That part of the weekend vs this part of the weekend

Could my title be any longer?!

Well I hope that you all had a fantastic weekend, mine was so odd!lol…I lost track of time because I worked on the weekend for the first time in my life, threw me right off! I stood up for a couple of people for them just to turn around and did something even stupider. Then there was also the friend who sent me this message about how Facebook reminded them we’ve been friends for 6 years and how we should catch up, even though it’ll probably never happen. Almost felt like they were trying to make me feel guilty about it, except they’re the ones who kept bailing, so I stopped asking,lol

Despite all of that though I actually had a really great weekend. I worked for the first time on a weekend and with only one other staff member, and didn’t break anything. Got around the seeing a movie I’ve been wanting to see and didn’t suffer from any anxiety. While working on the weekend has totally thrown me off a timetable, it was a great learning experience. I felt like I actually did learn things. Had a nice glass of Jack Daniels and then the next morning made myself the most perfect hot chocolate, if I do say so myself.

The best thing about the weekend was though I actually got to relax and recharge. I have had to go out every day on the weekend for the past three weekends and it’s been really annoying. I’ve enjoyed the time I’ve spent with people, but there’s nothing like being able to spend most of the day in your pj’s and just chill. Especially when you are cooking some beautiful beef in a slow cooker.

This weekend has inspired me!…Watch this space for more…

Happy Weekend

One of the things I like to do on a Monday is by reflecting what I did over the weekend, over and over again, making sure I revisit all the good memories. Long weekends tend to always be good weekends. Whether they be public holidays long weekends, or if they are just not having to work on the weekend and then not working either the Friday or the Monday.

  • I watched April the Giraffe give birth live…That was great!
  • My brother flew in from interstate for the weekend.
  • Got to spend a whole day with my family, mothers side.
  • Ate so many hot cross buns.
  • Two days in a row where I did absolutely nothing…BLISS! I was very organised this weekend. I got all the food shopping done before the weekend.
  • Didn’t do any retail therapy, which is probably a first and a good thing really.
  • Organised some things for my birthday coming up.
  • I had a pleasant conversation about belief and politics, with no arguments.
  • Reading a book in the sun, without getting burnt! Even though it’s supposed to be Autumn now.

What about yourselves? What do you like to do to cheer yourself up on a Monday? Did you have a good weekend?

What about you?

As you can probably all imagine I am little tired this Monday morning, luckily I have no work, but you always wake up at the same time anyways. I am so tired though I cannot think at all what to write for today.

So I thought that I would ask how your weekend went, how did your weekend shape up to be? Here a few things that happened over the weekend from all over the globe:

  1. Kenya torches Worlds biggest ivory bonfire to save Elephants
  2. Barack Obama roasts Donald Trump at Correspondents dinner
  3. Indian teen shoots himself in head taking selfie with gun
  4. Survivor rescued 13 days after deadly Ecuador quake
  5. A-League Grand Final: Adelaide United beat Western Sydney Wanderers 3-1 in thriller to take first title!

 

Easter Monday

I hope that you have all been having a really great Easter Weekend, and I am sorry if you had to work over it. I’m not sure about countries overseas, here in Australia though, we have the Friday, Sunday and Monday as Public Holidays, so it’s a nice long weekend.

Easter Monday (obviously) comes the day after Easter Sunday (or in my case, Happy Chocolate Day)…Easter Monday can also be known as “Bright Monday” or “Renewal Monday”. I kind of like those two names, it feels like you start the week brightly and renewed sense after not having such a long time off of work since around Christmas time. Of course you can take it in the literal sense of Jesus Christ coming back to life after three days.

What did you all do with your weekend? I hope it was sweet!

Easter Monday

A long weekend…

So it’s a long weekend here in the Down Under country and I have got a few things happenings this week, seeing people that I haven’t seen in quite a while. (Which had nothing to do with my previous relationship, I just haven’t seen these people all year).

However yesterday was the last time I have ever expected to “talk” (I use that term very loosely, very hard to have a conversation with someone who wont talk back) or see my ex ever again. There was one question that I needed an answer too and he did give it. I think though he’s answer didn’t really explain why he had started to treat me so badly AFTER we broke up. I have never before had to beg anyone to talk too me and I have never had to stop being friends with an ex so soon after we broke up. I have honestly been appalled and disgusted by my ex’s actions, but when people ask me why do I think he’s done it…All I can say is…I honestly don’t know.

What I can say though with 100% certainty is that it is on him and it is absolutely not a reflection on me or the type of person I am. I feel so happy about this. For 30 years I have struggled to feel good about myself and I can¬†finally be at a place where I can say “Nope, it’s definitely you”lol…I am not a bad person and do not deserve to be treated as such, I might like you, but I like myself best =D

Middle Week Slump

I have always been one of those people who has always hated Wednesdays. It’s not the beginning of the week when you feel (slightly) ready to get into a whole new week and it’s not close enough to start enjoying the end of the week. Although I am aware of in some industries like hospitality and retail, they don’t really get “weekends”.

Sometimes though I have been wondering I am the only person who actually dislikes Wednesdays? Even when a friend sends me a “Happy Hump Day” picture, doesn’t normally getting me going. Since I’ve stopped my blogging challenge I am struggling to find something to blog about that is not on a Friday or Monday as well.

Today I have just been having idea after idea in my mind and ¬†for some reason I am lacking the motivation to get these ideas started. It is almost like I have so many ideas it’s overwhelming unmotivating. I am starting to wonder if it is a good idea for me to start a fantasy novel, I don’t know if there is a set age date and I have no formal training to do so. I was listening to Enya all day and when I wasn’t working I had “The Hobbit” on in the background and I started to imagine a love interest for Thorin in my mind. Then during the rest of the day I started to create a back story for her, I came up with an perfect name and came up with a whole new race in Middle Earth. I am seriously considering investing in a smaller laptop (Notebook) just to write and get these ideas down and see what I can create!

I guess I’m writing to find out…How do you get past that mid week slump (if you have one)?
