Sunday Catch Up #1


This past week hasn’t been the best, as probably shown through my lack of posts. I haven’t been very well, and have been struggling with the stress of Uni work amongst other things. Also, with it being my last week of Uni before two weeks off for Easter, I’ve been busy doing lots of Uni related things, and haven’t had a very exciting week.  So instead of telling you exactly what I’ve done this week, I thought I’d give you a list of some of the things that have made me happy this week. 


Pizza Hut 
My boyfriend and I have an intense love for pizza hut, and probably visit at least once a week, which is probably why Im so poor! The main reason for our love is the free salad, which we get full use from, in fact I actually eat so much salad that I can’t finish my pizza and end up taking it home. This does mean my lunch for the next day is sorted tho, so I end up getting two meals out of it! Another incentive to draw us back is a 2 for 1 offer. If you complete a survey from your receipt your next meal is 2 for the price of 1. This usually means we end up going back for a second meal, either during that same week, or the week after.

Songs from Musicals
This week I’ve been looking for things to cheer me up and put me in a better mood, and the best idea I’ve had has been singing and dancing around my room to songs from musicals. I love musicals a lot, with Lion King being my favourite stage production and film, so blasting the songs loudly and singing along has improved my mood like nothing else.

The Sun
We’ve finally started to get some sunnier and warmer days in England and this has really made me feel happy. Feeling sad when the sun is shinning is so impossible, and I hope the sunny days keep coming. 

Going Home 
On Friday I got on a train and made my way back to Milton Keynes to see my friends and family for a few days. Being at home after months of being away at Uni is so great, everything is clean, theres a choice of nice things to eat, and most importantly I get to see my baby…

Seeing my Baby
Being back home with my baby has been one of the best parts of this week. Tilly is my family dog, a Staffie who is a total softie and wouldn’t hurt a fly (mainly because she’s deaf and wouldn’t even know it’s there). Getting cuddles in bed from her is one of my favourite things to do, and I miss her so much while I’m away at Uni. 

My Best Friend
Luckily while I was home my best friend was as well, and last night we got together for a big catch up as we haven’t seen each other since December! She is at Uni in Portsmouth, and Im up in Preston making seeing each other during term time almost impossible. Being able to meet up for a catch up even if only briefly was what has made me happiest this week. I wish I got to see her more, and Im gutted she will be working in Portsmouth all summer so I won’t get to see her much then either. Although it does give me an excuse to go down to the seaside and visit her! 

Hope everyone has had a great week. What things have made you happy this week?

  1. I'm so glad you're feeling better! I have to say singing and the sun has been a MASSIVE perk for me this week! 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' being my ultimate favourite! <3 xx

    1. Thanks I feel so much better today, feeling crappy is the worst. Thats such good song to sing and dance to, I also love a bit of 'I will always love you' when I really wanna annoy my house mates. Singing loudly is such a release! :)

    1. Thanks so much, Im feeling better today. Going to try and chill out as much as possible over Easter, but can't have a total break as have so many essays due in May so need to get writing! Pizza Hut is so great, I really love the salad, and always get the 500 calorie pizza, which I think tastes better than any of the others! :)

  3. Pizza Hut is so bad for you but so good - there is nothing better than the pizza buffet. Also my favourite musicals songs include any thing from Funny Face of Singing the Rain they are fantastic and really cheer me up. Great blog - I love your pictures! x

    1. You can get a 500 calorie pizza there now, which is actually really nice I think, so with the salad bar it doesn't have to be that naughty! :P Although I love their cookie and ice cream pudding which is definitely bad! Songs from musicals are great at cheering people up I think. And thank you :)

  5. Sounds like a perfect week :) being at home is the best after you've been away for a while, you also have the cheeky advantage of having delicious home cooked food too :p I hope you feel better soon and the next few weeks are filled with things that make you happy as well :D Also if you have exams coming up at uni, best of luck!!! :) x

    1. haha, well I normally get the 500 calorie pizza which is smaller than a normal pizza, and then I only eat about half and take the rest home, and the rest of my dinner is the free salad :)
