As I'm typing this, it's Sunday evening and I've just finished meal prep for work tomorrow. It's my first day back after two weeks off and I am pretty heartbroken about it! In the past two weeks the mornings and nights have gotten much darker and with me doing compressed shifts (12 hour days) I'm expecting to see very little sunlight until at least Thursday.
This does mean that we're edging closer to Halloween though. I wonder if I can make it to October before I whip out Hocus Pocus...
1. Time off work
Being able to wake up naturally > getting woken up at 5:45am by a stinkin' alarm. When I'm off work I sleep healthier, exercise more and am generally in a happier state of mind. A whole different person. One day I'll be able to work from home for myself, I just need to figure out how.
2. Horror movies
This was my Friday. Lights out, doors locked, curtains shut, thinking twice about going to pee alone. Horror movies are definitely my favourite kind but I'm finding it hard to find good ones that I haven't seen before so any recommendations are welcome!
3. Girl time
Another bonus of being off work meant I was able to spend an evening in Glasgow with my two sisters & two cousins. We went to Steak and Cherry on Sauchiehall Street for dinner and cocktails and had planned to move on afterwards, however my little sister felt a bit fainty so we all jumped in a taxi and took her home, and spent the rest of the evening watching cartoons (she's an animator - cartoons galore in her flat) until our late train home. My heart felt a bit full afterwards. <3
4. Pokemon Go!
STILL. I find this game really therapeutic - it totally clears my mind of everything else going on and keeps my focus on something I enjoy. Plus, they've made the Pokemon even cuter than in the tv shows somehow?!?! I'm also loving the Trainer Tips YouTube channel, definitely check it out if you are playing the game and haven't already done so. Although be prepared for Pokemon envy. And food envy.
5. The Office box set
We all have a movie or show that is just a total comfort blanket don't we? For me it's The Office (US version). I picked it up a month or so ago from HMV for £30 however have just noticed it's down to £27 on Amazon! Michael Scott is my favourite character of all time. Followed closely by Prison Mike. The programme is golden.
6. Games night
As you may have seen in this tweet, we exercised our rights as adults and moved the living room around to have a games night. And by games night I mean I
forced gently encouraged my boyfriend to get involved in Sims 4. See - being an adult isn't all bills and trying to carry four shopping bags at once.

How has your week been?
More specifically, I'm interested to know:
What's been your favourite catch in Pokemon Go?
If you play the Sims, what do you do to keep it from getting boring? I think I'm cheating too much and it's making me lose interest.
And finally, what is your go to movie/tv programme to have on for a little comfort in the background?
