Okay so firstly just let me apologise for not posting at all last week! I’m gutted with myself that I didn’t upload once in a whole week as I’m been blogging pretty solidly since mid July (aside from the week in Spain) but last week got super hectic and I didn’t have time to take any blog photos! But here we are and I’m also super sorry about my September favourites going up when we are more than a week into October. But they are all very applicable to October so no worries.
It is Monday and I am in my kitchen at 11.44 about to have my breakfast lol. I’ve been up since half 8, I’ve been for a run *reader faints in shock* and I feel sooooo much better about myself because of it. Although I did walk a part of the way back because I stopped in Home Bargains to buy A3 paper and tin foil and then saw Caffe Nero so I bought myself a coffee. But apart from that, I did actually run.
September has been a weird one. I spent one week in nice sunny Spain and then came back to Glasgow with a bump where I got a cold and tonsillitis. I also finished work, started university again, moved into my new flat and got a new job. Geez I’m exhausted even thinking about it all. Oh, and I also published my 100th blog post on Thursday. This lad is 101st. SO THAT IS KIND OF EXCITING, kudos to me to sticking with it this long in my opinion.
Barcelona won my heart, in a single day. It’s nestled cosily up there in my top five cities in the world (also included in this list is Amsterdam, Paris, York and Philadelphia) and I didn’t even spend 12 hours there.
This city is everything I expected it to be and more. It was bright, colourful, charming, quaint, chilled and laidback. The sun shone the whole day we there (not too hot which was lush because I would have been chaffing like nobodies business) and the whole city is alight with sounds, sights and smells.
I’m writing this post wrapped in a blanket on a Monday afternoon when I should be in class but tonsillitis has returned so I’m taking a breather day to feel better because tomorrow I have a hefty schedule of classes and then a meeting at night so I want to be in top-notch condition for that. I’m not a skipper I promise.
This month’s reading was a bit more of a struggle than last month. I am trying really really hard to keep reading for pleasure but I am neck deep in Thucydides and his history of the Peloponnesian War so after tackling that, I just want to burn all my brain cells by binge-watching Gossip Girl.
I’ve never been on holiday in September before. Usually I’ll be working my toosh off in school and getting settled back into the routine but because this year ‘school’ didn’t start until September 19th, four of my friends and I headed off to Spain.
I’ve also never been to mainland Spain before (I went to Mallorca in 2014) and I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did. I knew I would enjoy the company, the sunshine and the break from real life but I just really enjoyed the Spanish lifestyle.
