So I kind of dropped the ball on Sunday Sundries yesterday, huh? I have excuses, all of them good, but I've been making too many excuses for not blogging lately, and that must stop. Mission statement going on right here (also I have like 7 draft posts right now, and that is just too many).
Yesterday though- it was my mum's birthday (I made a cake, natch) and whilst I got her the best present in the world (we're going to see Dolly Parton in like 4 weeks!) I also abandoned her a tiny bit so that my sister and I could do the Colo(u)r Run- that thing that you see people doing on instagram like allllll the time, and go, 'God, that looks fun' so you sign up for it and... God, it's fun.
I say it was fun- queuing up for more than an hour in the burning sun waiting to start was not fun in any way, and I'm pretty sure they need some kind of better organisation or something because that was total bullshit. However- and I didn't think this would be the case but it was- the fun of the running and the colour was so good that it actually outweighed the fact that we'd stood waiting for it for longer than it took to run. Also, COLOUR.
The week before the weekend? I can hardly even remember it now. Except WAIT, yes I can- my dad came out of hospital at LAST, which freed up time in my life for doing other things, and I used that time to watch Frozen, finally (it's so good. Like, really good. I kind of want to watch it again right now) and to go out to dinner with my housemate-friend (she was my friend before she was my housemate so I don't know what to call herrrr) and also make a shitload of cake for this was the week of my mum and grandads birthdays, aka my busy season. It's all good fun though, whatever.
This week: all I can think about for this week is the fact that Orange is the New Black is out on Friday and there goes my weekend. I'm slightly dithering over whether to watch season one again (I watched the first two episodes this Friday) so I'll probably just see what ends up happening in the week, but the important thing is OITNB!!!!!!!!! (I might be too excited about this. I'm not sure, it's probably fine.) I do really want to get some reading done this week- seems like an obvious thing to say, but I feel like I haven't really gotten into a book for a long time, so I need to hunt one down that will make my heart sing with joy.
Or, I could just watch OITNB again. Whatever.
Other than that, I guess I'll just see what the week brings. I hope yours is full of all lovely things!
