My week

The first week of 2017 is already over, it wasn’t a bad week getting back into work was hard but not too bad maybe because I started back on the Tuesday and only had four days, which helped.

This year I am trying to blog more as I feel I’ve lost the love of it just a little, I have been thinking why I started it in the first place, it was because I wanted an escape route as I was in a very unhappy place. I hated my job and I was being treated horrible by a manager and it was killing me each day so I started blogging as a way to escape at times.
Thankfully I decided to get myself away from that situation and I’ve become a happier and healthier person for it. It’s amazing how a bully can have such a horrible effect on your life even as an adult.

Over the last week I have been thinking what I want out of 2017 and I want to be happy which I am at the moment, healthy somewhat at the moment and have savings which I use to have, Since  I started working in town (I am around the corner from Penney’s) I can’t seem to save at all.
This year is going to be about saving and trying to cut down on how much I spend in Penney’s and shopping in general.

Last week I did thing’s for myself that I enjoyed doing and took time for myself instead of sitting in front of the T.V.
January is a depressing month so I spent Wednesday evening pampering myself having a bath, face mask, eye mask which came in a hamper, my Mam got me for Christmas. I also got a white fluffy dressing gown and white slippers to make it feel like a proper pamper session.


On Friday evening I finally used the new pyjamas I picked up in Penney’s/Primark last year but left them in work over the Christmas so finally got to use them, there is just something about new pyjamas that always makes me happy.


The weekend was very lazy weekend mainly because I have no money so Sunday we brought the dog to Dollymount beach to go for a walk.
We got a new dog three months ago I really believed after are last dog died we would not be getting a new but after 5 months we realised the house didn’t feel the same. I was thinking of buying a dog as I would love a Basset hound or a French bull dog but we have always rescued dogs after really thinking about it I knew I couldn’t purchase a dog. Our search for a dog began now of course I wanted a puppy and I also wanted a female dog as I have never owned a male dog before. So of course I didn’t get a puppy I got a two year old boy dog, which has worked out perfect he has fit right in and has a great personality and loves a cuddle.


Lots of Love

  1. That was a nice read Carol. I know I’ve said it before but you’re my hero the way you left that toxic woman behind 👊

  2. Listen I think as adults so much bullying and bad treatment never comes to light… but sure the bully in the playground doesn’t change. The world is dotted with them. Fair play to you not taking any more shit!

    The pjs are so cute xx Siobhan

    1. Ah thanks Siobhan, it only took me seven years to leave lol. Your so right as an adult your are embarrassed to admit this is happening to you and feel powerless thankfully I had the guts to leave best thing I ever done. 😘😘
