The Good

Going for a jog to clear my stressed head.

The Bad

First-day-of-a-new-job blues. And an irritating woman sitting next to me on the train and tickling my bare arm with her fluffy cardigan.

The Unexpected

Only having one cup of tea at work, as opposed to the normal five.

The Good

Feeling more confident knowing that I had survived the first day of my new job.

The Bad

Realising how quickly this past year has flown by. I’ll be 22 this time next week. I’m not feeling it, unlike Miss Taylor Swift.

The Unexpected

Finding another new teacher at Zumba. What an earth has happened to our old one?

The Good

Having a BBQ with my church cell group, enjoying the last few rays of sun and devouring a huge burger.

The Bad

It got surprisingly chilly when the sun went in. Also the couple whose house we were at have two gorgeous rabbits. They let them run around their enclosed garden. But there was a drain without a cover on it, and I was constantly on edge, eagerly locating the rabbits with worried eyes for fear that they would fall down this drain and break their necks. It took a great deal of pleasure out of my caramelised onion sausage.

The Unexpected

Getting shut in the ticket barriers in the morning, beyond embarrassing. But a delightful unexpected occurrence was being picked up from the station. AND finding Sophie in the back of the car, all giggly despite it being her bed time. Such a cutie.

The Good

It being thursday which is delightfully close to friday. I think thursday’s are my new favourite day, they seem lighter and more hopeful than wednesdays somehow.

The Bad

Sitting on the train wondering why the carriage smelt so strongly of vanilla. Then realising that my yogurt had exploded in my bag.

The Unexpected

Opera in the middle of Trafalgar square during my lunch hour. It was unnecessarily loud for ingesting a salad.

The Good

I MADE IT THROUGH WEEK ONE OF MY JOB! Followed by a dinner of homemade mac and cheese and a big fat lime infused corona.

The Bad

Getting off later than I had hoped and therefore missing my train of choice.

The Unexpected

Squeezing in a much needed superdrug shop before catching the later train home. Squeezing the life out of time and his constraints.

The Good

Journeying up to Cambridge with the pals to see our lovely friend Abi for the weekend. We went punting for a few hours with some pimms, stopped for an icecram and a mojito, made the most of the Cath Kidston sale, bought a couple of punnets of local strawberries and soaked in the amazing weather. It was a fantastic day, followed by pizza, showers all round (separately of course) and a night on the town. Ideal.

The Bad

Being exceptionally hot on the dancefloor, because the clubs air conditioning had broken. I’m talking middle-of-a-desert-with-no-water kind of hot. Sweaty! Oh and having to get out of the cab before Phil Collins’ amazing In the Air Tonight drum solo. Worst thing ever.

The Unexpected

Having a very un-chatty taxi driver, they’re normally so keen for conversation. Not this guy.

The Good

Lie-ins. Friends. The Sun. All that BBQ’s stand for, which is mainly food and rays of sunshine thrown in for good measure. Strawberries and cream. Strawberries and icecream. Strawberries on their own. Plain and simple. Bare feet, burnt shoulders and laughs. And the sneaky nap here and there. Loverly.

The Bad

The weekend being cruelly cut short by Monday’s approach.

The Unexpected

Discovering that Glee’s Cory Monteith was found dead in a Hotel room, aged 31. So very young and incredibly sad. Life is short.
