Weekend “working” from home. .

So it has been no secret that this week I have been working from my house at a new job. Or should I say I have been struggling to work from home.

This last week has felt like being back at university, where everything else is the most appealing task. I now have a pristine bedroom, and have lost a shocking amount of money via Amazon. Curse you online shopping.

So I thought I could make someone else feel good about their achievements this weekend by sharing a few pictures of my lack of them. You’ll notice the the general theme of anything-other-than-workness.. ๐Ÿ™‚

โ€œI’m no good at anything. Not men. Not social skills. Not work. Nothing.โ€

So yesterday was an epic fail on my part. Come 6 o’clock I had a large glass of rose and the instant wave of happiness from that first cold sip was the decider that I am only a few public fuck ups away from being a 23 year old Bridget Jones.

I have had a slow start today, an undeserved lie-in. .a leisurely shower and well, I still haven’t done any work and its almost 2 pm. But. .there is still time for that! I have recently discovered the app ‘Evernote’, and whilst I think I may be incredibly slow to the table, I still am enjoying using it! I am one of those who gets so much joy from the planning, the list making. . highlighting, my god I love highlighting. It’s the task that I have spent three hours planning that I can’t be arsed taking on!

So with that reality looming, and taking on board that yesterday I did sweet FA. . I am going to make sure that today I definitely achieve at least two of things things off my latest Evernote list!

Right after food. . can’t think without food, so its all part of the task. . =)

Manchester :)

I have spent the day wandering around sunny Manchester with my mother and I fall more in love with the place each time we do our little pamper days. Ignoring the regular bouts of mental preachers and pushing past the masses of people all going the same way as you, Manchester is magical. We spent the afternoon having lunch, with wine of course. A little bit of the fancy shopping that is required, (who can resist the big yellow Selfridges bags- they come with their own sense of fancyness!), and then on to Harvey Nichols for a few cocktails!ย 

I have to admit that this little day trip probably won’t go unpunished as I will no doubt wake up for work tomorrow with a vodka hangover but for now it all feels worth it!!! I have to give massive props to the sales women at the perfume stalls in Selfridges! They don’t have know how to get into your head, and ยฃ80 lighter I think my mother would agree!ย 

Anyway today’s trip has made me so much more excited for the Manchester Christmas markets, and in turn, Christmas all together! I am hoping for a good one this year, so no pressure Santa ๐Ÿ™‚
