Would you like to know what happiness is?
Happiness is receiving an e-mail on a Friday afternoon at work saying, ‘Well done guys and dolls. Have your yearly bonus a few months early. All the best, CEO.’
I’m lucky in my job that I get a yearly bonus. I’m also lucky that I have a very small commute and that it’s the least stressful job I’ve ever had. Well, apart from when I worked in a bookies at University and only did the evening shifts, which meant watching soaps and ITV dramas for 4 hours and getting paid £7 an hour for the priveledge. Oh University.. I miss you.
As I’m away from my University days and a partial fully functioning adult. I’m going to do the sensible thing and save all of my bonus to make my house deposit fund look a little brighter. Or a deposit for a new car if the hospital say I’m going to go blind. I’m coming for you Audi A3, you’ll be mine one day.
But, if I already owned my own house and wasn’t being a boring adult. Here’s what it would definetely be going on:
I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m quite happy to give my beach holiday a miss. Instead, I really want to explore different cities and experience different cultures. When I say explore and experience, I mean getting drunk with my boyfriend in a bar, eating some local cuisine and people watching with the odd tourist attraction. At the moment, I’ve got a real craving for Rome (and New York obviously). I think Rome would be my ideal city as Italian food is my favourite food, I love wine and I’ve always loved Roman history. However, I’ve always said I’d have to loose a stone to gain a stone if I was ever to visit.
If there’s one piece of furniture I really hate in my house is this crappy old shelf in my living room. When the Geek and I moved into our home we literally had no furniture except a TV and a bed. Luckily with us both being the youngest our families donated and bought us the essentials and bits they no longer wanted. We live in a bit of a miss match house but I’m not buying anything nice until it’s my own house. I eyed the Kallax shelving unit in IKEA and it would replace the crap shelf perfectly. It’d also hide all the crap I have on the crap shelf and just make it look a little nicer.
Happiness also equals a new Radley handbag. The Geek bought me a gorgeous one for my birthday back in October but with eye drama, I’m now having to carry around a lot more in my bag. Unfortunately, my blogger planner has been replaced by a glasses case and eye drops. I’ve been eyeing up the Essex Road bag for ages and still haven’t taken the plunge to buy one. I just think they’d be fabulous for popping all my bits and even my laptop!
My Mac book is slowly dying. I say my Macbook but it’s actually The Geeks, but still, it’s dying. I had to pray to the computer gods the other night because it kept shutting itself down every 5 minutes the other day. Luckily, I think it pulled through and we’re A-OK now. I think it will be fast approaching to buy a new one. It’s sad but I do prefer the Macbook to a normal PC. I’m sorry world, I have become one of those people!
I know the blogging world has gone a bit crazy over Ted & Muffy boots but they are seriously beautiful. I love boots; they are my favourite type of shoes and I’m always sad to say goodbye to them as the weather gets warmer. But, I’d save these bad boys until September as they are gorgeous and would look fabulous come September/October!
I really need a new watch. I’ve been without my watch for a while now and my wrist has felt bare ever since. I really want a statement watch and I love this Radley one. My watch before was Radley but was very dainty. Now, I want the complete opposite. I’d be happy with it in either the Rose Gold or Stainless Steel but at the moment, I love the Rose Gold!
What would you get it you had a little splash of money coming through?
