Sunday Sundries: Just A Quickie...

Greetings, little internet friends!

I don't know why you're so little today, but apparently that's the thing I'm going with so let's keep powering through. This is more of a post to say that I'm not really doing a post today, which I know is really helpful and enlightening to us all. Yesterday was the Bath Bookshop Crawl which was magnificent, and if I had more time this morning I'd do a full post about it, buuuuut, I don't. However, I will write a thing about it during the week, and you're all going to love it (BECAUSE I COMMAND IT).

Other than that magnificence, the week has been pretty ordinary, or what has not become the new ordinary for me. I went to work every day (wuuuut), saw a friend I haven't seen for aaaages on Tuesday (and CAUGHT A BLASTOISE OMFG CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! I mean, I love my friend and we have so much fun hanging out, but the Blastoise was really the highlight of that day) and generally carried on with the work of getting used to the rhythms of my new life.

Maybe the most notable part of the week was going to see my nan's house for the very last time before it finally sold on Friday. That's the second time I've had to do that this year, and it was predictably horrible and poignant and nostalgic and all the rest of the soup of emotions that come with death and mourning. The fact that I now don't have any grandparents houses to go to makes it hit really really hard that they really and truly are all gone, so it was a bit of a sobering midweek experience.

I'm hoping to avoid any more emotional trauma this week, though. I'm only working 3 days because apparently I am a terrible new member of staff (but also, y'know, I've got stuff to do). It's looking like the kind of week that it exhausts me to just think about, because I've been trying to do this thing where I plan my meals out ahead of time so I know exactly what I need to buy, and it seems like I'm only going to be home for 2 meals all week which is a tad ridiculous. And potentially expensive, but still. Yay to having friends and doing stuff, I guess!

But enough about me, tell me about you!

  1. I'm sorry about the emotionally draining visit to your Nan's.

    But on a happier note, OMG I can't even find a squirtle so WELL DONE on your blastoise
