A Day in the Life: January 2015
This was a while coming and I apologise for the delay in organising this, but I am taking over the A Day in the Life linkup that Manda started last year. I’m excited to be taking over this linkup. While real life has gotten in the way, I have finally set this up!
The linkup dates can be found on this page, along with a banner to link to the linkup. I know today’s one is a bit late in the month, but if you decide to participate, I hope you find time this week to do so. The linkup will be open until the end of the first week of February, though.
Today I stayed at home. It’s currently the Australia Day weekend (a bit like the Fourth of July in the States), so we get Monday off as well. I love long weekends. Since working full-time I have really come to appreciate the weekends and having a good relax. I slept in this morning, and spent some time on my phone messaging Nicholas, who returned today from a short trip to Melbourne. I’m spending time with him tomorrow, which is the first time in five days… which is a bit strange when you are used to seeing someone almost every day.
I got up eventually, and talked to my parents and Brandon about what groceries to buy at Costco. I refused their offer to buy pizza – while I love the cheese pizza at Costco, it’s practically drenched with fat. Sooooooo good though. Not something I want to have every day, or even every week. Dad and Brandon went, and my mum stayed at home with me to help me re-colour my hair. I coloured it about a month ago, red, but it came out a bit uneven. Sometimes there just isn’t enough hair dye, especially if you have long hair. My hair usually looks super red on top and the body of my hair doesn’t get much. At least my roots were touched up though. While she did that, I filed my nails to give them a more rounded shape. They are really long right now.
Our shower was giving us a bit of hell today. Actually, it has this past week. The cold water isn’t coming out in very large amounts, making having a shower in this summer weather quite uncomfortable. I had a warm shower, washing the hair dye out of my hair. Mmmm my hair is so soft and smells nice right now. :P
I have been having nasty migraines this weekend, which I think are from the heat and changes in temperature from the air-conditioned room to the non-air-conditioned rooms in our house. I tend to get “sun headaches”, which hurt quite a lot. I took painkillers and had a rather long nap in the afternoon, not before I used our new foot and calf massager my mum bought yesterday, and before doing some freelance work.
I have to admit, the massager is really good, though it probably made my headache worse. I also have ticklish feet, so it always tickles a bit when the massager vibrates. You can turn off the vibrations and only activate the kneading motion, though. It’s getting pretty addictive to use because it feels so good. Hahaha.
I’m glad I got some freelance work done, though I still haven’t finished the project I am currently working on. It bothers me a bit because I am taking so long as I have so little time, but my client is really understanding and I appreciate that. I will definitely get it done super soon! I have no plans of giving it up at all. I really want to finish it.
After my long nap I watched a documentary titled George Harrison: Living in the Material World on television. We recently got paid television – or something like that, I don’t watch television enough to know haha – so I think there are probably more interesting things to watch. Not that it will make me watch more, since I am not really a television person anyway…
I spent most of the night watching that and chatting to Nick, in a pretty tired, can’t-be-bothered state. When I woke up in the evening though, my headache had disappeared and I felt much better. Here’s to lazy Sundays.
