Sunday Sundries- It's a four day weekennnnnnnd!

Well hello there friends, and welcome to my good mood! Said good mood is mostly down to the fact that IT IS SUNNY TODAY
And today I have had CAKE and also READ IN THE GARDEN
It's a good time all round, is what I'm saying! And my understanding is that tomorrow is ALSO a public holiday in America? I like that, gives some nice cross-Atlantic synchronicity (and I think we all know that I like to pretend to be American. It's a thing.)

Anyway, this week just gone! It started off horribly with this big gross headache that kiiind of didn't go away until Thursday, or at least lingered at points up until Thursday. I had to have the day off work on Monday and everything, but I soldiered on for the rest of the week (awww, how brave am I? Hardly at all.) Nothing hugely groundbreaking happened, BUT I did go with a couple of my friends to watch live TV being filmed, which was REALLY EXCITING! I've been to see a few pre-recorded shows being filmed before, which was fun but kind of takes forever, whereas with this, it was, obviously, just like it is on the telly!

And also a light blew up juuuust above where I was sitting, but I was FINE and so was everyone else, so nobody panic! I don't know if you've ever been to see TV being filmed before, but they have kind of a warm-up person to chat to the audience and in this case get us ready for, like, applauding correctly and stuff (No retakes! Live TV!) and in one of the ad breaks the guy was like 'you're so lucky this wasn't a pre-recorded show because everything would have had to stop for HOURS while they were sorting the light out', and then David Mitchell was all like 'yep, we'll just continue to put your lives at risk instead' in a hilarious and sarcastic way and, oh yeah, I LOVE HIM.

So anyway, that was pretty much the highlight of the week! I'm willing to bet my anecdote just thrilled you there.
And yes, now I have this 4 day weekend thing! Yesterday I maaay have done a tiny bit of book shopping (BAD LAURA) and also made a cake for my Grandad's birthday (which is tomorrow, but we had the cake today-don't ask) and today has mostly just been a festival of eating and reading and laziness, and long may it continue, I say! Tomorrow I don't have many plans- I'm going to see my Grandad so we can give him presents, and I might be going shopping a bit, but also I'd like to catch up on some bloggerising, but MOST IMPORTANTLY I'm going to see Les Mis on Tuesday and I couldn't be more excited!
And by party, I obviously mean cry my eyes out to song, but we all have fun in our own ways, amiright?!

Quick note: Next Sunday is when I'm doing the Race For Life (still haven't seen a conceivable way to get out of it [I'm kidding. Mostly.]) SO *gentle nudge* if you wanted to sponsor me, you can totally still do that! I wouldn't mind, you know. Whatever. Ahem. And I think I've said this already, but if you have then THANK YOU so much! You're the loveliest, all of you.

OK! I think I'm out of here. I'll be off to soak up some more sunshine, or possibly to write some more blog posts (Ha!) and then watch the new (!) Arrested Development episodes! (I feel totally... Cheaty being excited by the fact that there are new episodes, because I literally finished the third series YESTERDAY, but still I am excited. Just try and stop me!!) So yeah. That's what I'll be doing! You?


  1. Awww, your weekend sounds lovely. I'm glad you kicked your headache though, talk about way to bring a week down...

    I managed to sneak outside for five minutes at the shop - I spied a sunny free bench out the bathroom window and ran for it - and I had, like, an hour sat outside when I got home. No book though, just birds and cats and some live music from an event down in the valley. Being alone with my thoughts but IN SUNSHINE is much better than doing the same thing inside because it's raining. :)

    I hope you have more cake and Arrested Development and other lovely things to come yet - I think I might go watch some more 2 Broke Girls. It's so much funnier/filthier than I realised, and I have a total crush on Kat Dennings. That's a good reason, right?

    Love ya like chocolate buttons, xx

    1. My weekend's still going! It's pretty awesome :). The headache was SO GROSS though! I think I made it worse by just laying around A LOT, but I was totally trying to be gentle with myself, but it meant that whenever I got up it was kind of like 'WOAH headrush' and then, also, PAIN. But anyway. I'm ok now!

      Doing everything is better in sunshine. It really is. I know that when I'm down it's one of the only things that gets through to me, even if it's only in a kind of muffled way (like with everything... Aw, seriously, I love you and I feel so bad for you pumpkin!!)

      2 Broke Giiiiirls! I watched the whole of Season 1 like, avidly, but I've barely watched any of s2 at all, which I should probably rectify, because like you say 1) SO FUNNY, and 2) I am so in love with Kat Dennings and also her boobs. ALSO there's the whole cake porn aspect, so yeah. That's pretty cool toooo.

      I LOVE YOU TOOOO!!! xxx

  2. I hope you're having a fantastic long weekend! They are the best :)

    1. Aren't they just!! I'm still having a good time, but I so know I'm going to crash on Wednesday when I actually have to go into work! BUT I'm not thinking about that yet cause I still have another day to go!

  3. Your weekend sounds awesome. I envy the cake and lazy time!

    Yayyyyy for your Race for Life next weekend! I'm sure you'll walk it magnificently! Are you planning on any post-walk congratulatory book shopping or food eating?

    1. It has been awesome. Although I did forget to have any cake today :( YOU SHOULD MAKE SOME CAKE AND ALSO LAZE AROUND SOME! ;)

      I think I'm going to walk it excellently hehe! I'm hoping to do it in less than an hour, which seems sort of doable? If I walk fast? I don't know, but I'll let everyone know how I did, of course :). I'm not sure what I'm going to do afterwards! I'll either be going round my nan's for lunch of possibly (veeery tentative plans) going to have ice cream with the friend I'm walking it with- definitely need to discuss it with her because I am SO down for ice cream :)

  4. This is such a happy post, I love it!
    I am going to bake a cake today, possibly I will then eat it in the garden!

    1. Hehehe, YAY! I was SO happy yesterday, it was mad! I have actually been slightly grouchy today, but shhh, we'll just ignore that! Haha.

      Did you bake a cake and eat it in the garden? I hope you did! I nearly froze to death in the garden earlier, but that's neither here nor there, really haha.

  5. I am jealous that you have a four day weekend cos now my three day one looks PITIFUL.

    Did you watch/have you started watching the new AD episodes yet???
