Sorry I didn’t upload a Five Things Friday last week I was away as you guys know and I didn’t have time to prepare one before I went away. I am back now though and I haven’t got any travel plans in the near future at the moment.
So I thought that I would start this series called Five things Friday now it’s not like I just made it up myself I’ve seen many bloggers do exactly the same post but on their blog. If you haven’t already guessed what it is then I’ll let the cat out of the bag every Friday I’m going to be looking back on my week and sharing with you guys five good things that happened that week. I think that it’s such a lovely way to keep a mini record of my life as you often forget those little things that happen on a daily basis.
The first thing is long car journeys as you would have known from my social media, videos or blog I have been in Cornwall over the past few days. It took us over seven hours on the way there and just over four on the way back. So I guess I’ve picked up a few tips for when I go on long car journeys in the future. Here are some of my tips make sure you have lots of snacks, have at least two drinks with you, create a good playlist, have a blanket, wear comfy clothes & take travel sickness tablets if you are prone to travel sickness.
As you will all know I suffer with anxiety especially travel anxiety so I decided to take two travel sickness tablets both on the way there and the way back. These helped me a lot and I managed to complete both journeys feeling fine which was a bonus. I also advice that you have at least one stop if you are travelling for a long period of time to go to the toilet and eat.
Last night and the night before I have been watching cop programs like there’s no tomorrow. I absolutely love them especially the ones based around motorways or cars. I don’t know but I’ve always loved cop programs ever since I was around 13/14 I especially love the program Police Interceptors. I also like watching them to increase my knowledge on driving therefore I hope I never get into a horrible crash like the ones I see on the program.
I will happily sit and watch cop programs continuously every night as I like them that much although I have to say I have watched many repeats. I get excited when I see adverts for new series and I have to remind myself when it starts so I don’t miss it haha.
As you will know I’ve been Glamping over the past few days in Cornwall and the one thing I loved the most was how peaceful it was. I was able to focus on myself for 10 minutes without the hassle of getting on a bus or going here or there. This is very important as we often forget to take care of ourselves mentally as well as physically.
Glamping was also great for learning to interact with others again. This may sound stupid but when you go glamping you often meet people you’ve never met before. Therefore you’re testing your social skills once again as in our everyday life we usually just talk to people we’ve already made that connection with. I met so many lovely new people who were all welcoming and helped out when I had any queries or problems.
Also TV related I have been loving Life On Marbs although it’s rubbish tv in comparison to OITNB or Gossip girl it’s a great program. I have been loving Natalie “The Duchess” the most as she isn’t afraid to say what she thinks. I really do hope she starts her own blog as her style is so in and she always looks fabulous.
I have to admit I am addicted to Life on Marbs even though some people would find it awful to watch. It is very like TOWIE (The only way is Essex) as I think it’s produced by the same company. However this one is based in Marbella so there’s a lot more sun, sea and partying.
Last of all is having relaxing days the days where you do nothing but read books, watch TV, DVDs or YouTube. I love these days as they are important in restoring yourself in order to make sure you have enough energy for your next busy day. Today as in Friday 21st today I am spending the day at home watching movies, catching up on blog related stuff, seeing family and chilling out.
Believe it or not Glamping or camping is actually quite tiring as you don’t get that much sleep. Well I didn’t maybe six or seven hours a night and then you wake up early because everyone else does. The days seemed much longer than usual for some reason as I guess some days we just lounged around and bonded with the other people at the camp site. But more on that tomorrow when I upload my Glamping blog post.
