Mundane Midweek #2.

Tuesday, 18 June 2013

My Mundane post covers Monday. Not midweek at all! However is there a more mundane day than a Monday? Methinks not. Here goes, prepare yourself for a rollercoaster of excitement.

Woke up at 7:45. Hay fever is so bad at the moment, my head felt like it had been stuffed with cotton wool. Which does not make for a pleasant start for the day.

I'd been go-karting with chums on Sunday, little did I know this was a work out in itself (no power steering) so woke not only to hay fever fuzz, but also screaming shoulders feeling like the muscles were tearing every time I moved. Consider yourself warned, avoid go-karting at all costs. (I was crap and came 2nd to last, I have spent my entire driving-life being told to drive slowly and not hit corners at full-whack, and just couldn't get the fear out my head while whizzing round the circuit)

Got up, moseyed (word?) about for a bit, proceeded to get ready for work. It was a lovely morning, not too bright but very warm so put on a pretty dress.

Put on mascara, proceeded to immediately sneeze 4 times (damn you hayfever!!) smearing mascara under my eyes, achieving a panda-like effect. Had to start the whole dreaded make-up application process from scratch.

Got to work, banged out a couple of press releases about high-level disinfection in hospitals (it really is as exciting as it sounds), managed a photo-shoot involving lots of medical instruments, an adult sized nappy and fake blood.

Button popped off aforementioned pretty dress, felt mildly uncomfortable for the rest of the day as was showing far more back skin than I'm entirely happy with.

Lunch consisted of some rice followed by a banana. Its a week before payday and supplies are running low in our household, lunch will be similarly boring until fundage arrives.

Afternoon was spent in boring PR meetings, replying to emails and cruising t'internet.

5:30 - yes! Home time! Dashed out on the dot, headed home. Steve was, for once, home before me due to an early meeting so we cooked dinner together (sweet chilli salmon stir-fry, in case you were wondering).

Ate dinner, watched a few episodes of The Simpsons.

Toyed with the idea of going for a walk as it was a lovely evening, however decided against it as were both still stiff and sore from go-karting. In hindsight, a walk would've sorted us out but the sofa was far more appealing at the time.

Watched a DVD lent to me by a work colleague - the most god-awful film I have ever had the displeasure of watching - 'he's just not that into you'. Perhaps I'm being a little dramatic but really, it epitomises everything I hate about Rom Coms...

Went to bed and that was that.

  1. You're right, that film is terrible. Who knew Jennifer Aniston could be that annoying?

    Hannah -

    1. I know, she was so disappointing!
      I love your alphabet challenge - may have to give it a go myself.

  2. I have also tried go-karting and I agree, I can't go fast around the corners either. I came in dead last.

    1. I only came 2nd to last because a friend had to pull out due to motion-sickness!


I heart comments!
