Today I’m participating in Georgie’s monthly link-up “A Day in My Life” – be sure to join, I’m always curious about how other people spend their day!
I haven’t been up to much; I spent most of it resting, getting through my to-watch list (today I watched Monster’s University, yes I’m very late but 100% recommend!) and doing some house tasks whilst listening to Calm (a future blog post on this – thanks, Tiny May!)
It was relaxing and was great to spend some time away from work. Sometimes I really need those “stay at home” days.
Getting ready for outings always takes time for me. Surprisingly, it’s not because of makeup but more about choosing what to wear. After rummaging through my sister’s wardrobe (after deciding I had nothing to wear from mine), I picked up a red dress I gave to her but she never wore.
So later in the evening, I went out to dinner with my university friends before one of them goes away for an industrial placement. I felt like a proud mother on what she’s achieved so far – I love having such motivating and inspiring friends around that really drive me towards my own goals.
Now onto what we ate:
I had the chicken and mushroom pasta – I commented on how big the portions are. Usually, restaurants give out ridiculously tiny portions that I never leave full but today, I left full and actually very bloated!
One of my friends couldn’t even finish hers and had to ask for it to be wrapped away.
This is probably the second time I’ve seen someone ask for food from restaurants to be packaged away for later, I didn’t know you could do this until recently.
But when do I get to pack stuff away especially when I eat at places with small portions, ey?
And the best part… all for only £8.50! Other places like Zizis would charge pasta that only takes up 30% of the plate for £12 so I’m really happy to have stumbled upon this Mediterranean restaurant.
Once we left, we found out that there was a 10% student discount. It’s only 10% but still something, we all decided to always check before going in or asking for the bill.
Overall today was fun and relaxing. I think the summer feeling has finally kicked in.
Apparently, today’s the first day of summer. The sun did come out so I take that as a sign of hopefully better weather for the next couple of weeks, days or day or even a two hours at most (please?) ☀
I enjoyed the company I had, I even received a cute early birthday gift (birthday on Friday!) from my friend. As always so incredibly thankful for the gesture.
Now I should try and get some sleep for an extremely long shift at work tomorrow, which I strangely look forward to.
