My week in square photo's & 140 characters. Ep. 9.

A slightly delayed weekly round up...

This week has been a little bit of an emotional one, but not in a sad way, but in a very anxious way. And I guess it's put a few things into perspective for me, and also given me a little kick up the bum that a few things need to change. I'm letting certain things get to me and make me feel crap, and well, we don't need any negativity of the sort around these parts, do we?!

Anyway, this week didn't get off the best of starts... I probably should've known things were about to go downhill!

I did however, then sit down and was able to smash a few blog posts out and get a little bit of the last of my Christmas shopping done! I dip in and out of watching YouTube, and I'd also just finished watching a few video's when I started to contemplate starting it again. However..
This week was an exciting week in some places though, as I managed to hit 8k on Twitter!

A good proportion of my working week this week was stuck in traffic. There were a few bad accidents on my way to work, meaning this was my view for approximately 2 hours on Tuesday morning! I rocked up to work at 9.45 having left my flat at 7am, and I wasn't even the last one in!

At least the sunrise was pretty to watch to keep my occupied!

And then the rest of Tuesday didn't get much better. Work was okay, but do you know when your day is just a little bit of a write-off and you're just not in the right mindset to do anything productive..? Yeah. So I doodled Liverpool instead. Obviously.

Fast forward to Thursday evening, and this happened.

Speaking of Instagram, don't you just love the new bookmark feature?! I know a lot of people are saying it's a little bit like Pinterest, which I can totally see. But I've been getting a little bookmark happy and I've been saving a load of posts in there for inspiration. And, if I'm completely honest, I'm a little jealous of my own bookmarked feed haha!

Weekend outfits.

This weekend marked exactly one week until Christmas (how amazing is that!). However, there seemed to be some men who had only just realised this fact on Sunday morning.

Strong effort, guys.

If there's one thing I love to do at the weekend, it's get up (reasonably) early in the morning and go for a walk if it's a nice day. Particularly when the days are cold and clear and crisp, it really wakes me up and puts a smile on my face. One of the reasons I love it is because there's never anyone else around at that time!

Oh, and who could forget this Butterkist delivery that arrived! I'm so, so excited to try some of these flavours!

And finally, I'm so glad so many of you guys could relate to this tweet! 

How  was your week? Are you feeling excited for Christmas?
