A Week in the Life

Hi Guys!

I’ve never done one of these style posts before, but I love reading them and finding out what everyone has been up to (I’m just really nosey) so I thought I would give it a try myself and I hope you all enjoy seeing what I’ve been up to!

I was meant to be in University today but decided not to go as the lectures that are on don’t relate to the course essay question that I’ll be submitting in a few weeks time. So instead I woke up around 9:30/10 AM ish and sat and watched TV for a few hours (boring I know). I was planning on posting a Halloween Biscuit post tomorrow, but I made the biscuits today and when I iced them I realised just how AWFUL they look! So that wasted a few hours of my day but on the plus side I do have lots of biscuits to eat now and I’m not complaining about that! I spent the rest of the afternoon (and into the evening) binging episodes of Netflix, working on my dissertation and arranging future blog posts.


The only picture I took of the biscuits before I iced them!

I was meant to be in University again today but decided not to go (bad student I know!) but because of how far I live, sometimes there isn’t any point me doing a 4 hour round trip when I can get on with lots of reading at home. When I say lots of reading I really mean sit in bed and watch Netflix all day but we don’t really need to talk about that. I met my friend for some tea at Pizza Hut and it was SO lovely to see her as I hadn’t seen her for a few weeks, we both ate so much food (obviously had dessert) and I came out feeling like I was about to burst! I spent the rest of the evening feeling sorry for myself because I ate so much food I had a stomach ache.

Myself and my boyfriend are moving out of our house so today was a packing day. The house that we’re currently in is our first home so when we moved in we didn’t really have much, but now we’re leaving there is just so much to pack away into boxes and move! It’s crazy how much stuff we’ve gathered over the past year and a half (and how much rubbish I’ve thrown away). The house is now currently filled with boxes (which are all too heavy for me to move myself may I add as I filled them too much) so I’ll have to wait for my boyfriend to come home as he works away, and he can move them instead! After packing all day, I spent the evening at my mum’s spending time with the family.

Up bright and early this morning with a 5:45 AM start (yawn!). Back to University today but its not too bad as its only for a few hours and then I’m not in again until Monday (hooray!). I had a meeting with my dissertation advisor at 10 AM and I’m extremely happy that I actually seem to know which path I’m going to take now, it all gets so confusing when I have so many ideas running around my head! I had my final dissertation lecture, grabbed a subway and headed back to the car for the 2 hour journey home. I spent the evening helping my mum run a stall at a local craft evening, she’s a baker and run’s her own business called Debelicious Cakes, she has her own Facebook page here if you would like to have a look, her cakes are incredible!

I’ve been looking forward to this day all week! Even if I don’t particularly have much planned on the weekends I do love it when the week rolls round to a Friday. I think it’s because everyone’s usually in a good mood! I planned on getting so much done today but that didn’t really happen (when does it?). I started moving a few boxes into storage and making the house clearer which feels fab as I now have more room for activities! I spent the evening at my nan’s with the family watching the village fireworks from her garden, it’s started to turn into a little tradition which I love as its always something to look forward to this time of year! Every year I’m usually so busy taking pictures of the fireworks I miss out watching them properly so this year I put my camera down and just sat and enjoyed them!

I didn’t have anything major planned for today so I woke up around 9AM ish and just had a leisurely morning pottering around the house getting bits done. I feel like there’s so much to do lately and so little time which majorly stresses me out. So I’ve been writing a list every morning of what I want to achieve in that day so I can just focus on a few things and don’t feel too overwhelmed with everything!  I spent the evening having a meal with my mum at Frankie and Benny’s as neither of us had any plans, I had the brownies and ice cream for dessert which was delicious! I always look at the dessert menu in any restaurant before the main menu, as dessert is obviously the most important part!


My sleeping pattern is all over the place at the moment so I woke up ridiculously early and couldn’t get back to sleep. I didn’t mind though as I had a full day planned out with some friends shopping! I picked up my friend Jordy and we travelled to Norwich to meet Emma. We had some lunch at a really cute café and had a nosey around the shops. I even bought a Christmas present (which I am extremely happy with as I had been looking for it for awhile!). All the shops had their Christmas decorations out and all the Christmas lights up which makes me feel so festive! It was such a lovely day as I hadn’t seen either of the girls for months! Once I got home, I ordered myself a Chinese then had a long soak in the bath and caught up on x-factor!


So that’s what I’ve been up to lately! I hope you all enjoy this post, it’s something a little different but I’ve really enjoyed writing it and its something I can look back on!

What have you all been up to lately? I’d love to hear!

Happy Reading!

Love Kirsty x

    Sounds like a great week. I too have been going to lectures and skipping some, as well as starting a new temporary job and getting Christmas presents. Thanks for sharing x

    I loved reading this! It’s so fun to know what other people are doing during the week! I’m so boring, if I did this it would be like 2 sentences per day. 😂
