THE SUNDAY POST #15

001. I'm supposed to be handing in two pieces of coursework this week, and I'm nowhere near finishing either of them. So why am I writing this post I hear you ask? Because once again, I find myself stuck in procrastination mode. I'm in my final semester of my final year at University, and I just can't seem to get my work done. Is anyone else having the same problem?

002. We went for a walk around Cannock Chase this week. The weather was beautiful, and it was so nice to escape into the woods and hear nothing but birdsong. Is there anywhere you'd recommend for getting some peace in Manchester?

003. The worst part of this week was Friday; we were stuck on the M6 for almost five hours! We didn't move for two hours, everyone switched their engines off and opened their doors. Luckily the sun was shining and I had great company.

004. I started reading A Song of Ice and Fire this week.. talk about procrastination. I've been hooked on the TV series for a while now, and I can't wait for the new season to start next week. The book is really enjoyable so far, it's very descriptive and you get much more background knowledge and depth of character than the TV adaptation. If you love the show, you'll love the books even more. 

005. As the weather was so good this week, we decided to sort out the front garden of our house. First we had to dig everything out, as there were lots of weeds and rubbish. We came across snails, caterpillars and other creepie crawlies in the process, luckily I was wearing gloves! Then we laid down some compost and plant food and planted dahlias, roses, honeysuckle, freesias and begonias. Did anyone else get their green fingers on this weekend?

    1. Yeh it wasn't great, I'm glad I had company though! A football match would have been so entertaining, we just got to see a lot of men go for a pee at the side of the road x

  7. A few months ago I visited Heaton Park for the first time - it was lovely to escape the city for a few hours! I'm looking for some other places to visit within Manchester and would love to explore Chorlton and a few parks which are dotted around - hopefully they may bring about a little peace! Good luck with your final few assignments - I remember all the stresses all too well... but you'll be fine! :) Enjoy your week!

    1. I've heard lots of nice things about Heaton Park, and I'm sure there are plenty of other green parks in the Greater Manchester area if I just looked around a little.. It's always nice to escape from a busy city life. Thank you, hope you have a lovely week too x

  9. I definitely know how it feels to procrastinate from work!! Blogging always seems a great work distraction :) AH no way! Being stuck in traffic is one of the most frustrating things. Your gardens will look so pretty when the flowers start to grow!!

    1. I hope so, I keep checking for shoots but I only planted them last week! Blogging is definitely the best form of procrastination, at least it's productive x
