The Monday Blog!

Well hello there! It’s Monday again, I know I can’t believe it either! 

This weekend was very chilled for me and involved quite a bit of baking and boogie-ing in the kitchen! 

On the Friday night I got home from work and I was completely pooped so our planned meal and few drinks out went completely out the window! We also had our house to ourselves for the weekend for the first time in ages which for a couple is amazing! Alls I wanted to do was  put my pyjamas on, bake and have some cheeky prosecco from the comfort of my own home! 

After baking cookies I was struck once again by the baking bug and we baked our own pizza dough and made pizzas whilst dancing to BBC Radio 2 with the boyfriend. Pizza is my favourite food in the whole world so I was totally made up with my pizza, prosecco and freshly baked triple chocolate cookies. Friday night was just bliss! The perfect antidote to a long day in work! 


On the Saturday I had a looong lye in which was just amazing after hardly sleeping the last few nights. We lazed about most of the morning having bagels and coffee for a late breakfast before heading into town to pick up a few bits. Of course, I couldn’t resist a look in Utility to see all the cute house things! I picked up an exercise mat from Sports Direct which I’ve really needed since starting exercising from home and the boyfriend got some new trainers. 

After that I left the boyfriend in town because he was meeting up with workmates for a drinking sesh. I went to my dads and had a little chat with him before heading home. 

Now I know this sounds silly considering I’ve lived away from home before but this Saturday was the first Saturday I found myself home alone and I was actually OK with it! 

I got in and baked a few more cookies before pouring myself a glass of the left over prosecco and attempting some yoga on my new exercise mat. I know usually alcohol and exercise don’t mix but because it was yoga it was really relaxing especially as I lit loads of candles. 


I don’t normally exercise on the weekend but since it was yoga and I was home alone I saw it more as a way to treat myself by relaxing and stretching my body. Surprisingly I actually enjoyed it.


After that I run myself a nice hot bath and used one of my lush bath bombs (shoot for the stars) to turn the water a beautiful blue and gold. It was devine not having a man knocking on the door asking to use the loo! 

Once cleaned, I went back downstairs, put on a onesie and ordered myself a Chinese (well it was Chinese New Year!) I picked a film to watch whilst eating my Chinese. FYI, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies which wasn’t that good if I’m honest! Asides from that I really enjoyed my night alone! I discovered it weren’t as bad as I thought it would be! If anything it made me appreciate the peace and quiet of an empty house and some alone time to do what I like. 


On Sunday me and the boyfriend spent the day painting the kitchen some more so it was a messy day! But it meant we’ve finally got it done! Now we just need to add our decorative pieces and we’re done! 

Anddddd, that was my weekend! I know it’s been proper relaxed and low key compared to others but every weekend is different! I hope you guys all had a lovely weekend and I wish you a beautiful week!
