Week #16

Hi! How are you? So last week I was thinking I was gonna get straight back into blogging again but I kinda forgot I was still ill and the IVs were making me super tired. Add in a heatwave (you may have seen this mentioned a little on social media...) and I was literally no use to anyone! Also, after almost a month in hospital it did take me a while to adjust to home life. But the good news is I've been gradually wearing oxygen less and less this week, currently I only need it for physio, exercise and just occasional moments when I'm a bit out of puff where it's so hot - so, woohoo! Also IVs are over and I had my first proper shower in over a month which was beautiful.

IKEA meal

On Friday I went to IKEA and I was very restrained...I stayed away from the cacti, the metal white pots and all the other blogger clich├ęs because I'm saving for summin' special (more on that later though!) But obviously I bought two cakes home with me. 

Another thing I did do this week was go to the cinema. Me and my cousin went to cool down and of course ended up in the only screen there where the air con was broke but that only meant it was a good excuse to get a load of ice cream and drink a disgusting amount of fat coke with ice, so swings and roundabouts ;) We saw Jurassic World and I was so excited because everyone was banging on about how amazing it was...EXCEPT EVERYONE FAILED TO MENTION THAT IT'S BLOODY SCARY.

To be fair I watched an original one with crappy 90's CGI on a teeny telly in hospital and it still frightened me so how I didn't clock that a new version on a massive screen, in the dark, in 3D would also be frightening (CHRIS PRATT IN 3D DOE!)

I used to be all like 'I would well go to Jurassic Park' well HAHAHA I'm a liar because there's no way. I don't even like going to the aquarium because I don't like the jellyfish or sharks or even the coral. The thought of blue whales terrify me, this is why the worst dinosaur in the film for me was most definitely the underwater one. Even typing this is making me shake. I know, I'm a wimp and this is not normal behaviour for a 22 year old. But the sea is so deep and blue and massive it's possible these monsters may still exist there, so it's a rational fear and is why I shall never go anywhere near the Bermuda Triangle

But although I was annoying the other 20-odd people in the cinema by making too many wimpy noises I did actually really enjoy it, in fact it was the highlight of my week and I recommend you catch it if you can if you haven't seen it yet!

Have you had a good week? Have you seen Jurassic World? What dinosaur do you think is the worst? Oh and THANK YOU for your lovely comments, the day after I published my last post I panicked because I was worrying I looked like I was having the biggest pity party ever. I'm not and I wasn't, I'm allll good :)

  2. Yay I'm glad to know you're a little better now, that heatwave was pure evil! I've never watched Jurassic World but I'm probably more of a wimp than you are so I don't think I'll be watching it any time sooner. You must have amazing self control because I could never not get things from IKEA..

  3. So good to hear you're doing better, Josie:) And I actually took my boys out of school to see Jurassic World on opening day. We're kinda dino-obsessed in our household. So sorry to read though that it scared you...well, it was kinda scary and violent, but just think....Chris Pratt:D

  7. I really want to see Jurassic World! I love all of the other films in the series. Ahaha, so this has just reminded me of the Jurassic Park ride in Universal Studios. It's basically a log flume, but it has this big build up where you go around in a boat and see loads of friendly dinos. Then, it's as if you've gone into a restricted area with little velociraptors and finally a massive T Rex before you go down the flume! What made me laugh, is that these guys went on it because their family members told them it was a gentle boat ride, and they thought that the bit in the restricted area was real and started freaking out! xxx

  9. I can't say I agree - I really didn't like Jurassic World! I thought it was silly a bit cringe, and quite sexist :( I did enjoy Chris Pratt tho! And the sea is deffo scary, it fascinates me at the same time though. Glad to hear you're feeling better :)

  14. Haha omg you're so cute. "i don't like jellyfish sharks or even coral!" The dinosaurs in that movie were pretty scary though you are right. How did you stay away from the Cacti at IKEA though? Next time I make the 2 hour trip, I will be getting so many plants.

  38. Glad to see you back and feeling a bit better! I don't blame you for not getting straight back into blogging, I was struggling during the heatwave with my bloody hayfever so I can only imagine how bad it must've been for you!! Haha I refused to go and see jurassic park with my boyfriend, I knew it would scare me cos he would only go and watch it in 3D at the IMAX and that's way too realistic for me. Glad I'm not the only one that's scared by sharks in the aquarium too :) xx
