I haven’t done a life catch-up in a while. Because usually nothing happens. Unless you’re interested in stories of me doing three loads of washing in one day and therefore feeling like a superhero?
Didn’t think so.
But the past couple of weeks have actually been pretty busy. I turned 24, went out a couple of times and celebrated Halloween. I’ve had lots of chocolate and cake, failed my diet (hahaha) and realised that my boobs now make every single thing I try on look too slutty to wear in front of my family members. But I’ve been having a lot of fun lately, despite my outfit-ruining boobs. Anyway…
Two weeks ago, I took my friend to see The Ladyboys of Bangkok, because I’m an excellent friend. We went to the late (9pm) showing, which is exactly the same as the 7pm showing except the audience are really, really, really drunk. One girl tried to climb on the podium with one of the performers, then refused to get down when the bouncer came for her. It was funny to start with, then it got incredibly awkward. Despite a few idiots, it was a good laugh, and I thankfully didn’t get dragged onto the stage to dance.
Last weekend was spent doing lots of Halloween stuff. I made buns with my family on Friday (mine were definitely not Instagram-worthy), then we went to a Halloween party on Saturday night. I went as a sugar skull (see the photo above) and we spent the night dancing and eating and dancing. Andy taught my auntie how to do “cool” dance moves, so she now knows how to “get her guns out” and do the running man. The only downside was getting my dry-clean only jacket covered in beer, which means I’m going to have to pay to get it professionally cleaned. Or I can smell like beer forever, which might not be such a bad thing.
Last Sunday, I went to my parents for a birthday takeaway. My sister gave me all my presents early, including the loveliest Tofu Cute lucky bag. I got these beauties inside:
She also bought me insulting amounts of hand-wash. Do I really smell that bad?
My Mum and Dad gave me my birthday money early so I could spend it on my pre-birthday shopping trip! BUY ALL THE THINGS!
Yeah, Monday involved a lot of shopping. Andy took me to Pandora and let me choose a few things, and I ended up with a beautiful silver bracelet, a black leather bracelet, two charms and a ring. I also spent my birthday money from my parents on books, a bear mug and a weekly planner (I know, I’m boring). Then I made Andy wait for an hour in New Look while I decided what to buy. I ended up with a pair of dark grey, skinny jeggings, a top, some amazing boots and some earrings. Andy ended up confused about why it took me so long to choose such a small selection of plain clothes. Oops.
On Monday evening, my sister came round and we carved this pumpkin:
Nearly cut my hand multiple times, but it was worth it. And, I don’t care what anyone says, there’s nothing classier than a Koffing sitting on a Domino’s pizza box.
Tuesday was my actual birthday, which involved my family bringing round lots of chocolate and cake. In the evening I went to the pub with a few friends, where I was given a plastic tiara and some helium-filled balloons to wear. Because there is absolutely no shame in sitting in your local with a load of balloons attached to your head…
Obviously, the helium ended up being used childishly, with a few of my friends breathing it in so they could sing Stayin’ Alive effectively. And I ended up violently smashing the chocolate shell on my cake with a spoon, and making a huge mess on the table:
Stay classy, guys. Someone has to be!
On Wednesday evening I went to see Doctor Strange, which I really loved. I wasn’t expecting it to be quite as good as it was, despite Benedict Cumberbatch’s weird American accent. Definitely one of the best films that Marvel have done!
In other news, my iPhone 6S decided to break recently, so while it’s being repaired I’ve been given a replacement. A replacement with no Internet, a screen smaller than a postage stamp and a ringtone that would make your uncool Grandma cry. Which explains why I’ve not been doing my usual “blog-hopping on the bus” thing. I should hopefully have it back on Tuesday, but Carphone Warehouse can’t seem to find what’s wrong with it, so who knows. Maybe I’ll be playing Snake on my old-fashioned phone for a while…
How has your month been?
