How many people do you see posting a meme on a Sunday night about how much they’re dreading Monday morning? Or who religiously count down via ‘humpday’ until they’ve finally got that Friday feeling? We all do it but considering most of us require our jobs so we can actually keep a roof over our heads, put food on the table and keep up an excessive shopping habit, there’s not much chance of us quitting tomorrow to ‘follow our dreams.’
I have long been a Wagamama fan girl and I can never say no to the offer of a Katsu Curry. If I had to eat one meal for the rest of my life then that would probably be a major contender. Despite having an extensive menu that sounds the bomb I never really stray from my beloved Katsu so when the guys at Wagamama invited me down to try their new summer offerings I was there before you could say ‘free green tea.’
I have never been much of an outdoors person. I grew up in the countryside and although much of my childhood was spent ‘playing out’ and I lived in a town so small that we could and did walk everywhere; that’s about where my ‘outdoorsy’ side ends. I’m much more at home when I’m parked on the sofa and god forbid someone suggests an outdoor activity or even worse, camping.
Lately I’ve been in a bit of a ‘book lull’ and despite my inner bookworm being desperate to get stuck into a juicy new book I just couldn’t be bothered to start a new one. On a whim one day I picked up The Fear and thanks to this book I’m officially back in the game and flying through paperbacks like there’s no tomorrow.
Finding the perfect gift for a loved one is in fact a task I find thoroughly enjoyable. I know a lot of people dread having to hunt down a birthday present, these are also the same people who stick to the humble gift voucher every year, but not me. I thrive on it. The main reason is because I love seeing the look on someone’s face when I get them a gift that is just so ‘them.’ If you tend to veer towards present disasters, then these fail safe tips will ensure people remember your gift long after the big day.
