Staying In Bed For A Week

Staying In Bed For A Week

large (6)

Do you ever get so fed up of work, and life, that you want to close off the world and just stay in bed for a week or two avoiding all human contact? That’s exactly what I did this past week – I stayed in bed, sipped tea, ate a lot of toast and watched a LOT of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, it was really kinda something.

I didn’t just take a week off work to sip tea and eat toast, as wonderful as that would be, I do have a genuine excuse, uh, reason… I have a cold, but it’s sorta dying out now, thankfully.

Although I was ill, I feel as though that week off was well needed and has done a lot for me, I think all of the sleep has actually made me a happier person, which I guess means that whole “sleep is important for your mental health” thing is true, and really bloody important; I have never slept so much in my entire life.

One of the more major things that happened this past week is that I realised a change of career was in order, I think I’d really like to work in Social Media Marketing or Publishing full time, since someone once told me that if you do something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life, and if that is true then that’s what I want to be doing – can you believe there are jobs out there, and people willing to employ you to blog, and handle their social media platforms? Hell, I do that every day and night anyway, I could do it in my sleep. But really, it’s what I want to do full time.

Another thing, that kind of baffled and upset me happened… every year I draw/design a birthday cake and then I take the design to this wonderful lady at a cake shop here in Blackburn and she works her magic and produces THE BEST 3D NOVELTY CAKE YOU’VE EVER SEEN based on my designs and believe me, she can do literally anything, and then I give it to my boyfriend, and he loves it, and then he eats it, so anyway, I took advantage of the time I’ve had off and I drew the best thing ever that I wanted turning in to a cake for my boyfriends birthday and then I took it to her shop… only to see that it had closed down… I was so taken aback by this, so I contacted her to see what on earth was happening, and she informed me that she’s moved to Scotland… well, as you can imagine, my heart shattered, and I began looking for other people/places to make the cake for me, but within an entire 20 mile radius, there was NOBODY who specialised in or created 3D Novelty cakes… guys, it’s the 21st century, why doesn’t anyone make 3D Novelty cakes? Don’t try and fob me off with plain, old, boring fruit or sponge cake with a picture printed on to icing, I WANT A 3D NOVELTY CAKE, goddammit!!! I’m not sure what I’m going to do now, other than attempt to create it myself (wish me luck, I’m gonna need it!) I might even start attending cake-making classes for times like this.

Another thing is that it was mine and my boyfriends 1 year anniversary on Sunday (yup, also Valentines Day, wooh) but sadly, I couldn’t see him due to being ill, and I didn’t want to infect him so we promised to celebrate the weekend after… It was about 10am when I heard a knock at the door and was greeted with a huge gift box, with roses, chocolates, and a balloon inside… It was the most romantic thing anyone’s ever done for me, and it made me love him even more! When I questioned him on it, he simply said, “it’s Valentines Day, I wanted to show you that I appreciate you!” He’s such a beautiful human.

I’m really looking forward to getting back in to a fitness routine and going swimming this weekend, I have missed staying fit, and I think I gained a few pounds! 

I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day, and have a great rest of the week!

Welcome to my little corner of the interweb. I constantly strive to chronicle my existence through written word; which is much of what you'll find here. xox


  1. Wow, this is so strange, it’s like I could have written this exact same blog post! We have so much in common! I would LOVE to go into digital media marketing- maybe someday soon! And I totally feel you on wanting to just spend a whole week in your apartment/nest. I’ve had plenty of those days. Glad to hear you’re feeling better!

      Ha, that’s brilliant – and so cool, because I adore your blog!!! I actually got three job interviews this week in Digital Media and I’m so happy, going from Nursing to that is gonna be such a huge plunge, but hopefully a positive one! x
