My Weekend Spontaneity + Other Updates!

My Weekend Spontaneity + Other Updates!

Life has been hectic lately, from working to working out to attending appointments and blogging, I just haven’t had the time to put 100% in to any one thing, so by the end of last week I was really looking forward to having a well needed rest, and just kicking back with my boyfriend.

Unfortunately, life never quite works out the way you want it to, and he had to go to Ireland for work, which meant I’d be all alone all weekend, and I wasn’t looking forward to that.

As much as I am an “independent woman who don’t need no man” sometimes, I’m a weak, emotional woman who really does need her man, and so when I found out that he’d be home earlier than I thought, I made a master plan to go all the way down to Birmingham and surprise him at the airport, but time was not on my side, it took me 5 trains and 5 hours, I turned up at his house unannounced, and frightened him to death (he thought I was a burglar) and at one point I was outside of his house calling him frantically, but he eventually picked up, I asked him to go have a look in his car for my purse so that when he came down I would jump out and surprise him – needless to say, he was surprised, and happy, and so was I, and it definitely cheered me up. Man, I’m such a romantic sometimes.

Update #1

About a year ago I was diagnosed with depression, it was quite severe and sudden the doctors had no idea what had caused it, it started in October and lasted all the way until February, it was the worst few months of my life… Well, a couple of weeks ago I started feeling those bouts of depression again, and I had no idea why or even why it appeared at the exact same time as it did last year without a trigger… And that’s when I was diagnosed with SAD (seasonal affective disorder.) I guess I can only be thankful that we finally discovered what the problem was, and that my mum seemingly knows a homemade cure (sun, apparently, lots of sun/sunbeds and I’ll be cured, so she says!) So if I ever seem a little down, or strange, don’t worry, I’m just a little SAD!

Update #2

It seems that my body has been undergoing a lot of stress lately, so not only was I diagnosed with SAD, but I’ve been suffering from terrible migraines whereby I am either going blind or blacking out completely, which can make sitting infront of a computer screen to blog, quite difficult – I’ve been given medication but it only seems to make it worse, le sigh.

Update #3

It’s almost Halloween which means shopping for decorations, couples’ outfits, and toffee apples (yay!)

Update #4

I have a queue now, of posts I hope you’ll love –  I know I enjoyed writing them, and they are all ultimately Halloween themed, so keep your eyes peeled for some awesomely creepy stuff this month, from creepy stories, to recipes, to my outfit!

  1. Sorry to hear about your SAD, hope you can find new ways to cope with it. I’m looking forward to Halloween too, yay for pumpkins!

  2. That is too cute! I love surprising people lol
    I studied about SAD in my psychology class! Before I even finished reading I thought that could be it. I really hope the sun helps!

  3. Hi! I can’t really relate to most of what you talked about, but as a new reader would like to support nonetheless by hoping for the best for you. In terms of migraines I feel your pain. Having one right now and know how disabling that is. Today, I already know approximately how and when my headaches come and the best ways to treat different types. Hopefully, you’ll find a way to avoid or prevent them as well.

    Hang in there!

  4. Great tips! I especially love the cork board calendar!
