A quick little post written from the warmth of my bed at 11:20pm on a Saturday night.
Yes, 24yrs old and in bed before midnight on a Saturday! ……And boy do I love it!! 😉
Now don’t get me wrong. I also love socialising, partying, going out, doing the “being young” thing. There is no denying that.
But not every weekend. Last year, most definitely. But I feel like a lot has changed for me this year. And I think I have too. I’ve now got less money, but more responsibility. I am now living out of home with my boyfriend, working, studying, desperately trying to become a budding new entrepreneur and then also trying to fit in friends and social outings in between everything. So in the big scheme of things, social outings are quite low on the priority list these days.
I honestly don’t mind it though. I’ve come to love spending Friday nights at home with my darling boyfriend. We treat ourselves to take out (a once a week luxury), drink together and either watch DVD’s or play board games. Yes, we are complete and utter nerds but I can’t deny how much I enjoy it!
Saturday morning tradition has become big breakfast days. It’s really the only day of the week we get to have breakfast together so we make the most of it by going to a local cafe and treating ourselves, or I’ll cook us up something yummy. Today, it was all me :).
We had coffee and chatted away as usual (mine had soy milk and honey).
Then followed them with more coffee, because why not? ;). I also cooked up some bacon and soft boiled free range eggs on toasted soy and linseed bread! I had half an apple too!
My egg once I cut it open. That yolk was too good for words!
The roller derby team I’m apart of trains on Saturdays, but since training is back in our old hometown over an hour’s drive away, I only go every second weekend now to save on petrol. Today was a training day :). I didn’t have time to eat the apple from breakfast, so I packed it for the car trip down, along with water.
My beloved skates! They’re definitely not the fanciest things in the world. But I learnt to skate in them so they hold a special place in my heart :).
After training, boyfriend and I came home, played Deal or No Deal (not even joking you!) and then I cooked us up a big pot of chilli with lean mince and lots of veggies (sorry no photos as the boyfriend’s phone is terrible at taking photos at night!) and then we watched a movie and now here I am, blogging while the boy sleeps away. Poor thing starts work at 6am tomorrow.
I’m honestly exhausted myself. After too much eating, drinking and not enough sleeping last weekend, I am thankful for such a quiet and uneventful one this week. My body is going to thank me for getting it to bed before 12 all weekend and for taking care of it as I should!
On that note, the clock is almost striking 12 and this little Cinderella is off!
Hope you’re all having lovely weekends!
Ciao for now,
