Anyway this week has been quite an interesting week because as I wrote about recently my mum and dad have been away in England visiting the Harry Potter studios over in London so really it's just been me at home. Obviously my brother is still around but he's basically been living with his girlfriend so asides from a few hours on Wednesday night I've been all alone. I actually haven't minded it. Once I got past the cooking for myself and trying to keep my schedule the same as it usually is I've quite enjoyed it and it's made me realise I'm quite likely to actually do alright when I finally make the decision to move out. I've been stressing a lot, mainly due to my dad recently so it's been good to get rid of him for a while to be honest with you, I don't like being lonely but being alone is different and it's not too bad.
My week's been marred by being quite sick again though, I was off work on Wednesday because I was feeling ill and bed ridden and on Thursday I was only in work for like 20 minutes before my boss made the executive decision to send me straight home because honestly I felt faint and like I wasn't there. Even though I'll be taking a big financial hit it was actually pretty kind of my boss to look out for my best interests and send me home, more worrisome is the fact I'm always getting sick it seems, I must have a terrible immune system and it's something I really should check out sooner rather than later too.
Anyway as the title says it's my mum's birthday this week, it's actually her birthday on Sunday in fact and obviously I want her to have a really happy birthday, my mum's set to turn 53 and obviously after the horrible year she's had where she lost her mother and after all she's done to help me with my depression and suicidal thoughts that I had in the past I think it's only fair that myself and my brother chip in to get her a really good birthday present. My brother might not even make the effort to come home for mum's birthday because he's busy at his girlfriend's but that's a different story that might annoy me more than anything.
Obviously I was stumped when it came to what to buy my mum because I am absolutely terrible at buying stuff for anybody but one of my Twitter friends Laura who's recently started a business with her partner selling Forever Living products jumped in to save the day and I ended up buying a few of her products. On a side note Laura is a really lovely young lady who has a lot of passion for her business. She's another person I've met online who I consider a true friend and excitingly I think she's literally only a few days away from giving birth so make sure to check out her website and her Twitter as well!

The main present I got my mum was this perfume that just sounded irresistibly awesome and like the exact kind of thing that my mum would just adore. I already know that she's quite a big fan of musky perfumes and the fact that this perfume isn't available on shelves it's an added bonus because my mum works in a chemist and generally already knows the majority of perfumes out there.
I also bought mum this bottle or really high quality spreadable honey although it was as a bit of a joke. Basically recently we've had a bit of an on running recurring joke with each other because my mum bought this honey that was supposed to be squeezable but it was instead all crystallised and hard but instead of taking it back mum insisted on using it anyway claiming that you actually pay more for crystallised honey and that it was ideal so basically I bought her this honey so she knows what real honey actually is haha!
The final thing I got my mum wasn't from Forever Living but she's going to love it all the same. It's the book The Cuckoo's Calling written by Robert Galbraith who most of you will probably know is the pseudonym of Harry Potter author JK Rowling. It's a crime novel written by JK so she would only be judged on the writing and now what her name is but I've heard nothing but good things about it and my mum is such a big fan of JK Rowling, to an extent where she's almost her hero I thought I'd buy her it as well.
So yeah, obviously the normal things such as a card and flowers will be bought for mum too but these are the main things I'm buying her and I hope that she has a special birthday. My dad spoiled Mother's Day for her but hopefully her birthday will be a different story, dad and mum have been getting on much better as well recently which is nice. I'm going to go here anyway, thank you for reading everybody, oh and have a good weekend since we're there already too!
