I can’t believe it’s Sunday again already. I haven’t really be very busy this week but somehow the time has gone past super quickly. We’ve had various family and friends visiting but now the festive period has passed it’s calmed down a lot.
I’m still visiting my parents at the moment and making the most of getting all my meals cooked for me and having central heating on all the time! I’m also making the most of all the chocolates and sweeties leftover from Christmas and am taking the opportunity to eat as many as possible. Once I go back down to my flat it’s going to be healthy eating only so I’m going to eat as much as possible this week haha! I have a gym membership which I hardly ever use, so I’d like to get my money’s worth out of it this year and try to go about 3 times a week. I don’t want to lose loads of weight but dropping a dress size would be nice (I, however, am extremely lazy so this will probably last about 2 weeks before it’s back to long lies and Doritos in front of the TV!).
It’s been great being at home and just lazing about doing not very much, usually watching TV with the dog curled up on the sofa next to me! He hates getting his photo taken, but I got a sneaky wee picture of him the other day. Sadly he’s not as photogenic as he was when he was a baby! His name is Moss and he’s 7 months old now, so cuuuutteee. I think the majority of bloggers are probably cat people, but I am most definitely a dog person!
I’ve also been doing lots of reading while I’ve been at home. During termtime, I have so much stuff to read for my degree that the though of reading for fun doesn’t even cross my mind. It’s such a shame because I really do love reading but I never seem to have time for it or be in the right mood to sit down and read a good novel. The other day I finished “The Radleys” by Matt Haig which was alright but not brilliant, a pretty light and easy read although it was very predictable. I’ve just started another book, “Even the Dogs” by Jon McGregor, which is quite good so far. I love his previous books (especially this one, so so good!) so I’ve got high hopes for this one. It’s a bit slow so far but I’m only a couple of chapters in, so I hope it improves! Have you read anything good lately?
I’ve haven’t really been out and about anywhere so I’m afraid I haven’t got many exciting photos for this week’s post. I’m off out this afternoon to look at laptops as I’m thinking of buying a new one. My current one is about 5 or 6 years old now and although it still works, it can be pretty slow and is rapidly running out of hard drive space. I’m trying to convince my parents to buy me a new one as it will be “essential for writing my dissertation to have a good laptop”. 😛
What have you been up to this week?
