Sunday Summary #130


1.Sunshine 2.New sunglasses 3.Strawberries 4.Sunday morning

Sorry to shatter any illusions you may have had that I lead an exciting life, but this week I have done literally nothing of note. Life has mostly been filled with work, trips to the Post Office to send off Ebay stuff, and a wee bit of online shopping. I bought a new duvet cover from Debenhams (Accessorize Folksy Set) which I loooooove, and I am now using brand new sheets as a good excuse to spend the whole of Sunday lounging in my bed. I also ordered a few things from Lookfantastic, including the Alpha H Liquid Gold which I have been meaning to try for years. I've only been using it for a few days, but I think I really like it!

I have been enjoying the sunny weather this week but it is, dare I say it, a little too hot for me. I know, I know, it's like 23 degrees! I am pathetic. I've always been much more of a winter person, and luckily this is about as summery as Scotland ever gets. I do love summer evenings though, when it's warm enough to sit out in a beer garden and it doesn't get dark until nearly midnight. Bliss. The other day, Sunglasses Shop sent me a lovely pair of Sheriff & Cherry* sunglasses to help me cope with the summer, and I couldn't have picked a better pair myself.

The next couple of weeks look like they're going to be a bit more exciting, with birthday parties, blogger events, and a wee trip to the Highlands with the family, but for now I think it's back to Netflix and replying to emails. Seriously, I would pay someone good money to reply to my emails for me - most boring task ever!

What have you been up to this week?

  2. I LOVE that heart shaped dish.
    I love the light evenings too, its so nice to sit outside.
    But it does trick you into thinking its earlier than it is, and before you know it your going to bed at 1am

  3. sometimes i think it's awesome just to do nothing.. we spent this weekend, sitting and eating. and it was perfect! xx

  4. My Sundays as always spent behind a desk at work, it sucks, But I don't get that Monday feeling because I get Mondays off!

  5. My summer break solely consists of me binge-watching TV, lounging around in bed, and of course, online shopping, so I totally get you! ;) Have you been watching the newest season of Orange Is The New Black on Netflix? I am sure I was holed up in my room for a whole day just to finish!

    Sometimes, it is nice to have down time and just relax. Then you feel more motivated to be productive afterwards! :-)


  6. I *adore* your bedspread. Supremely jealous of your Sunday too. ^_^
