Mundane Midweek



My midweek really was mundane. Charlotte's tag is really taking off so why not join is what I say? We do basically the same job and sometimes I like to pester her with work questions, so she already knows how mundane I can be. I read this excellent article about the gloss we all put on our online lives so once in a while it is nice to remember we're all a bit boring sometimes.

On Wednesday I was late to work because I missed the train, so had to stand all the way. It stresses me out being late. My morning was spent at my desk and talking to almost everyone in the team (I'm always chatting or "networking" as I like to put it) until lunch came. I went to the gardens I posted about here and I ate a Pret baguette and got cheese all down me. I'm supposed to be doing healthy eating but fell off the wagon last weekend head first into a Feast and white chocolate chip cookies. I didn't realise the Feast had chocolate in until the next day, that's how bad I am at healthy eating.

Lunch was the highlight of the day really. I went back to work, ate some granola bars, sent emails, "networked" and worked through my to do spreadsheet. That's right, I have a to do spreadsheet - colour coded and everything. I stayed late to make up for the time I'd missed in the morning which meant I had to stand on the train home - twice in one day, can you imagine?!

Lee was working late so I came home, put a wash on and cooked a fish pie for one from Watirose accompanied by a homemade mojito because I'm a borderline alcoholic and I deserved a little treat to celebrate midweek... I then filled my time by watching Location Location Location, Whatsapping my friends about my new blog idea 'The Shit Life', eating biscuits and then hate-watching Glee. Lee came home, took the piss out of me for watching Glee and we went to bed.

Mundane huh?

  1. I HAVE A COLOUR CODED TO DO SPREADSHEET TOO!!!! Oh man, we don't only have the same job, we're basically the same person. I love 'networking' - sometimes I just network all day long

  5. I love all these posts, they're so satisfyingly NORMAL! Sometimes when I read other people's blogs I can't help but get a little envious of how 'perfect' their life seems, so it's really nice to know that, underneath it all, we all have to go through the same mundane things everyday!

  6. I love that you have a to do spreadsheet!! But I'm confused- HOW did you not realsie a Feast was chocolate? It's like ALL chocolate?! I'm glad your day was as standard as mine, and that someone else hates being late as much as I do. xx

    1. I know, it was genuinely a low point. The fact that it happened a day after as well, too much embarrassment! xx

  7. Oh man I need a Feast right now. Also I am jealous of your to-do spreadsheet. My knowledge of spreadsheets is based on half listening in Year 9 ICT lessons many moons ago, and covers just enough of the basics for me to be able to teach 8 and 9 year olds how to set them up last year, pretending to know what I was talking about xx

  8. Being an adult is so overrated! But way to reward yourself with beverages and super classy television haha.
