The Sunday Catch Up #36

 
Happy Sunday campers!

Before I get into this week's post, look at my cute little McDonalds Christmas cup! Whilst they may not be as snazzy as Costa's or Starbuck's, they're still ridiculously cute and festive so they deserve a mention, aww!

Anyway, I hope we are all feeling fabulous despite the slightly shitty week we've been treated too. Last week I didn't have anything exciting to report on (hence the lack of Sunday catch up post) but this week I have heaps so grab a biscuit and put your feet up.

I WON A RETURN FLIGHT WITH JET2
This week Jet2 were giving away 20,000 return flights (that's 1 every 15 seconds). All you had to do was name the 10 destination pictured correctly and you were in with a chance. I must have played it about 200 times and by the time I got the flights I had the images memorised but I'm so so glad I persevered! After some discussions with the boyf we decided to use the flight to go to....BERLIN!  We haven't booked it yet but we've got some dates in mind so will be doing so as soon as possible.

WHAT'S MY AGE AGAIN?
Blink 182 announced a 2017 tour last Sunday and I was all set to take some money out of my savings to buy tickets but I didn't have to 'cos my Mum bought them for as a Christmas gift - YAY! I was a bit apprehensive when Blink 182 announced they were replacing Tom and making a new album but I had nothing to worry about as it's one of their best albums. I cannot wait, bring on 2017!

THE ELECTION
I wrote this post when I heard the election results and although I'm not in (as much) shock anymore, I do worry how the vote will affect the minorities of the USA aswell as the rest of the world. Trump's first speech as president was quite humble (for him), congratulating Hillary on a fight well fought, aswell as saying it's time for the USA to unite - Despite his campaign being mainly based on division. Personally I believe that actions speak louder than words so we will see.

LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW
I woke up to a blanket of snow on Wednesday - As it coincided with Trump becoming president I have a slight suspicion that hell might have frozen over. However as I didn't see a single snowflake last year due to travelling, the snow got me pretty excited for the upcoming months and I just hope and pray that it sticks around for Christmas!

BUSTER THE BOXER AKA THE STAR OF THE JOHN LEWIS CHRISTMAS ADVERT
Well the John Lewis Christmas ad has been released, it's practically Christmas YES! Normally the ads are tear inducing but I feel that this year they had a preminition that we would all need cheering up. The creatures in the advert are adorable and I love how goofy Bounce the Boxer is.

And there we have it! Another week down and another step closer to Christmas. Have a lovely week!

  2. Ahhh loved this roundup - first of, Christmas cups from Coffee Shops are my absolute favorite. Secondly, you won a flight? How cool is that? And Blink touring again is insane. It's like my childhood (and the childhood of all other 90s kids) has all of a sudden gotten a second wind. The election really was a shock - well not so much a shock cos I really thought it was going to happben, but a disappointment. Hearing the rise in racist acts that have followed in the days after the election make me really scared for the future.

    1. I know, I couldnt believe it when I woke up and Donald Trump was president. I just hope that people stay safe and help others around them! I can't wait to go see Blink 182, I think this will be the fourth time I've seen them? Arghh!
