Sunday Blog - The Pit & Peak of the Week

Just to try and get a bit of order in my life I thought I'd start a weekly round-up and make this a regular feature for a Sunday evening. Every week I'll post my favourite part of the week as well as my not so favourite part.


It was my wee bestie's birthday night out on Saturday and because I'm currently off work I decided it was wise not to go. Absolutely hated not being there to celebrate with her and felt sorry for myself because my friends were away out enjoying the festival in Edinburgh and I was sat at home, sick, unable to have a drink and super jealous because apparently they were in a pub that played City High's "What Would You Do" which is really where I feel I'm meant to be.


I decided to change up my home d├ęcor a little bit. I bought this house and moved in last December and as much as it has all the essentials like furniture, electricals etc., it doesn't have a lot of personal touches to make it a home. The walls are white because it is a new build, and the tiles and flooring are all neutrals and warm colours so I've finally decided on a colour to put a little POP into things...YELLOW. I ordered the most adorable cushions this week and I swear I never thought I'd be old enough to get excited about living room cushions but hey I'm there and it feels good bro. Once I have some more bits and pieces I will do a picture post and also look for some opinions on what else I could add to the house (interior design is not my strong point at all).

Anyway it has been an absolutely gorgeous day today, think it was around 22 degrees which is "taps aff" weather here. It was so nice outside that I actually got up and showered and spent some time not cooped up in the house which has really cheered me up! Weird how a bit of sun can give you the motivation you've been without all week, huh?

Plan for the rest of the night is to try and coax my boyfriend away from Rocket League on the PS4 and chill out with a movie - probably Shutter Island as I've been meaning to watch it again for ages and it popped up on Film 4 yesterday so I recorded that bad boy. My favourite movies are usually horrors but I feel like I've made my way through almost all of them so if you have any recommendations I'd love to hear them.

Toodles xo

  2. I like the idea of a Sunday round-up. I would like to see the cushions in your home, as like a home-decor post, that would be cool :) x

    1. Thank you! I'm waiting on a cool fox picture for my wall so once that's here I'm planning on snapping some of my new yellow accessories for a post :) x
