Week in Review

This week I was gutted to hear about the deaths of two of my favourite people in the world. Yes, it's unfair to be over dramatic about a celebrities death as it's not like you knew them personally. I grew up watching and appreciating Victoria Wood on TV, from Dinnerladies to Acorn Antiques, I found them all just so, so funny. Not only have I always admired her wonderful sense of humor, I also appreciated her determination to be a woman comedian and how well she worked with Julie Walters. How can you even start with Prince as well? For as long as I can remember, I have adored him. Purple Rain is by far one of my favourite songs of all time and I'm just shocked that his talent has been taken from us so soon. I think what scares me the most is how young Victoria Wood and Prince were, it just seems so unfair for their family and friends.

Obviously my weeks consist of work five days a week and trying to squeeze in a social life in between! On Wednesday, I met up with Ellie and Gemma for another incredible delightful desserts. It was fab to see them and to have a well deserved catch up. On Friday, me and my work mates headed to the pub after work after the boss let us finish a couple of hours earlier, what a top bloke! I was supposed to head to a gig on Saturday night, but after a few complications, me and Gemma decided we'd go for a few drinks in little old Stourbridge instead. We found a table, got two bottles of wine and were good for the night. Particular highlight was at around half nine when all the lights turned off for the 'disco' to get started and a family were still eating their dinner! That is what makes Weatherspoons painfully fabulous. As me and Gemma got into a deep conversation, which is the norm after that much wine, she told me how lovely it is to see me happy and in a job I enjoy. This made me feel all lovely and warm inside and really appreciating the way my life is panning out at the moment.

Today I spent the day with my grandparents. I often forget about the fact that they would have had loads of jobs before I came onto the scene 22 years ago, so we sat and talked about their lives and as you can imagine, it was really interesting! Nan also showed me the jewelry that  family members had given her over the years. Her Aunty Win, so my great aunty, sadly passed away last week. Win gave my Nan a few items over 20 years ago and she let me have Win's engagement ring. I'm not massively into jewelry, but I love this ring. It's so simple but pretty and I think because it's got a family sentimental value to it, it just means so much more.

Next weekend is going to be a mad one and I'm fairly excited about it! On Friday, me and my friend Viv are off to see Noel Gallagher and Saturday is my mom's hen do. On Sunday, me and my friends will be off on a night out for Viv's leaving drinks before she heads off to Liverpool and the following week will be the lead up to my mom's wedding. So, it's all fairly exciting. I still need to get my outfit for the wedding this week...so wish me luck!
