Mundane Midweek :: Strikes and Domesticity

It’s Thursday, yet for me, it feels like Sunday. This is because I haven’t been to work today, due to industrial action. There aren’t many perks of a strike and the loss of a day’s pay, however it has given me ample time to catch up on my favourite blogs. I have to say, I’ve really enjoyed reading everybody’s Mundane Midweek posts, some of them have made me laugh out loud! If you’re unsure of what I mean, it’s an idea created by Charlotte of Charlotte’s Web, check out this post for a round up and other bloggers taking part.

Yes, I’m a little late jumping on the bandwagon but my day has truly been mundane. So mundane, I thought it deserved a post of its own. It started with the trusty alarm clock, set for 6.50am. I had such good intentions of getting up at my usual school time! Did it happen? Hell no. 8.30am. Oops.
Does anyone else get a ridiculous amount of emails about voucher codes and sales? Normally I delete them straight away, but I decided to open Debenhams’ offering. Betty Jackson.Black ‘Camilla’ bedding reduced to £19.50. Erm, yes please! 



After a truly frustrating check out experience from them, I thought I’d check out Topshop’s sale. There’s so much I want in the sale, yet so much not in my size in the sale. Cue more frustration. Those leather tan sandals will be mine! Then I spotted the Cath Kidston sale. Oh my days! I made two purchases, both as gifts for a friend. However, if this London Backpack would have been in stock, let’s just say I’d be very poor right now. 

I will admit, I spent more time than I should working today. But the reports won’t write themselves and I have *a lot* of work to get through in very little time. So the next few hours passed like a blur. My only breaks were to wash my bedding , empty the dishwasher and reheat some pasta for my dinner.

And what am I doing now to make the day truly exciting? Well, I’m about to cook tea and do some more work. Rock and roll.

How’s your day been?

As always, much love,
