Redhead Rambles #38

Hello everyone and welcome to ‘Redhead Rambles’. The series does what it says on the tin, it is a redhead (me) rambling about her week. I share what I’ve been up to each week, how I’ve been feeling and what I’ve been listening to or watching. Occasionally I will my share favourite blog posts and links I’ve found useful or interesting.

  • Fridays seem to be becoming my ‘lazy’ day. I welcomed the rain and once again decided not to get dressed on one of my days off.
  • The sun was out on Saturday but it was freezing cold. I changed outfits three times until I was finally warm enough.
  • On Saturday night I noticed a sore throat and by Tuesday morning I was sick. I’ve spent most of this week not feeling the best. Once again I think it is a sinus infection, which I have suffered from more than usual this year. Basically this week has consisted of sinus rinses, paracetamol and probiotics.
  • I haven’t listened to music this week as I haven’t been able to sing or felt like it.
  • On Monday for dinner I had homemade pizza with some leftover roast chicken from Sunday night which was delicious!
  • On Tuesday evening I went along to a customer service course I enrolled in through work. I was going to pull out after seeing how personal the questions in the first module were but one of my colleagues encouraged me not to. I spent the weekend stressing about the course and because I wasn’t able to attend the first night a couple of weeks ago I felt out of the loop. Tuesday night’s class was fine and I even won a pair of Chanel earrings. I don’t think they are the real thing but they look pretty!
  • I didn’t sleep well at all on Tuesday night. I woke up with a dry throat shortly after 3am and didn’t properly get back to sleep. I had to get up for work just after 6am.
  • My blog giveaway closed on Wednesday. I will be double checking the entries this weekend and drawing the winner. The winner will be announced in Monday’s blog post!
  • As part of work we have a mobile library van which visits schools and community stops and allows people to get books out without coming into the library. On Thursday I went out on both the morning and afternoon runs and we stopped at a bakery for afternoon tea. I had a jam and cream donut and a sausage roll as a treat.
  • My online order from White Fox Boutique arrived and when I got home from work on Thursday I tried on the t-shirt dress and bodysuit. Both pieces are really nice and I posted pictures on Instagram if you want to see what they look like. I am a little bummed that after I ordered them the items were discounted even more but that’s what happens when you shop online sometimes.

How was your week?

    Aww, sorry to hear you were feeling sick this week, Chanelle! 😞I hope you’re starting to feel better at least! At my job, so many people are sick too. It’s the season, unfortunately. :/

    I’m off on Fridays as well, and try to get as much relaxation time as possible cause I work Saturdays. I’ve been so sleepy lately, so a good nap is in order today lol!

    Glad that the customer service course went well! How cool that you won the earrings too! Chanel or not, new jewelry is always a treat hehe!

    The homemade pizza and roast chicken sounds delicious, I’m getting hungry now. lol!!

    Ooh, just checked out your Insta and both pieces are super cute. Loving the t-shirt dress! x

      Changing of the seasons and going into spring here means a high pollen count 😦 I am starting to feel better today.

      I always feel sleepy too although not as bad as when I stayed with my ex-boyfriend, that sleepy was because my body was hungry and I didn’t eat all that well.

      So happy with the clothing pieces! 🙂

    There’s nothing better than homemade pizza. 😍 And that customer service course sounds great, I think any opportunity to enrich yourself is always an opportunity to jump at. 😊

    Hope you are feeling much better! Xx

    Oh girl that sucks I’m feeling like I’m on the brink of getting sick too I just feel it in my throat
    And that’s so freaking cool that you have mobile vans for people to check out books, I’d love to do that then again, going to the library is nice because they have a huge selection lol

      The change of seasons is when it tends to happen most, especially for us in the Southern Hemisphere going into spring and all the pollen being out and flowers blooming. I am about 85% better, the last traces always linger for a little while xx

    Hope you are feeling better! Whenever I start to feel a tickle in my throat I start downing vitamin c and tea! I sooooo don’t like being sick! With the weather changing it’s always the case. I’m guessing you are transitioning to spring in NZ?
