This week I’m reading…

Literally anything about the general election. This time two years ago I was working six days a week, twelve hour days for a political party. I was exhausted. This general election, I’m working for an MP and I’m not allowed to do any work. My work pass has been cut and my e-mail access suspended. I have five weeks off. I’m trying to get my politics fills in other ways. Sticking close to any news that comes out and the following everything closely. I love little gossipy bits last time. For example, I loved this little tidbit about a press officer screaming in 2015. I’m waiting for the 2017 version!

This week I’m wasting my time by…

Playing a ridiculous amount of Roller Coaster Tycoon. With five weeks off work unplanned, I’m finding it hard to fill my time doing anything at the moment. I did search through my drawers and unbelievably found my old Roller Coaster Tycoon CD. It must be from when it came out in 1999! It’s impossible not to waste a huge amount of time playing it. I’m 100% addicted.

This week I’m loving…

Clinique’s Take The Day Off cleansing balm. It’s sad but it’s one of the only skincare products I have that I look forward to putting on and taking off. Nothing has ever taken my make up off with such ease before and I’ve only just finished my first pot that I got for Christmas.

This week I’m eating…

Probably nothing as good as my friend Gemma who has just started her own blog about all the wonderful food she eats. You should probably check it out. 

This week I’m drinking…

Ludicrously thick mochas from a cafe near my boyfriend’s house.  It was so sweet I had to go to the nearest pub afterwards for a g&t to wash it all down. I think that means I won on two counts.

This week I’m researching…

The numbers of driving instructors back in my home time. I have such a long time off work then I might have to try and so something vaguely productive with it! Learning to drive is on my list of things to do this year. I passed my theory test not too long ago, so now I just have to take the plunge and do the actual driving bit.

This week I’m listening to…

Adventure Bar’s Spotify playlist. I love that bar and now I can save money at home with a Malibu and Coke and pretend I’m sat there instead. Seriously though, that playlist is a wicked form of nostalgia and happy tunes to get you up in the morning. I recommend.

What are you up to this week?

    Ooh good shout on the Adventure Bar playlist – every time I've been they've always played such fun music! I'll have to give it a listen too 🙂 x

    Hello! Time doing something you love it never wasted. Or so they say, enjoy five weeks off – it doesn't happen very often in life 🙂
