Saturday: A whole day to myself

Posted by

Today I have decided to start up a new blog.

Dory Daily Diary is a place for me just to share little personal anecdotes that I want to and that kind of thing,

I’ve always wanted a blog and never really known where to start, so if people have any hints or tips please do let me know.

But the point of this blog is for me is to tell you a story each day, about stuff that I get up to.


F**k me!! Isn’t it the best?

I should put some caveats in… Myself and my SO live together all the time. We rarely have nights away from each other… And it is just one night away from each other. Much more than that then I’m sure I’d start to miss them. Maybe after three nights..

Today then I have a whole lot of pottering planned.

OMG The Art of pottering ok so there is a whole other blog post in that which I will get to soon.

So pottering… yeah today I am giving myself the day off, I have some work to do but nah that can totally wait today is about me chilling out!! I bought this amazing blanket the other day from Primark its pink, fluffy and SOOOO soft – I freaking love it! I’m currently sat on top of it on my bed typing away on my MacBook and it feels a bit like I’m sat on a cloud. And that is a good way to start a Saturday.

The pink and the gold go so well together I’ve had to stop and take pictures…



(its teddy bear fleece and its soooo soft – I might go and buy every colour they have going!!) (And just a quick thank you to Apple for making the most beautiful MacBook ever)

I have a STACK of Christmas magazines I am going to read at some point today. I might even… woah… I might even watch my first Christmas movie… suggestions welcome! I sometimes feel like I’ve seen every Christmas movie there is to see, so if there are any alternative Christmas films I should be watching let me know.

I also am going to eat some soup that I made yesterday.. I’m a little under the weather so whenever that happens I tend to make a batch of soup. Yesterday I made a leek, potato and apple soup AND another one.. a batch of Butternut squash soup. I haven’t tried the latter yet but the leek, potato and apple soup was freaking incredible! I put a little bit of cinnamon in it and it rocked my world. (perhaps I could put the recipe up for that at some point.. if I can remember it… a lot of my cooking is put stuff in pot add time and then taste taste taste chuck more stuff in taste again and eat).

So then I am going to do some proper reading. (Like an actual book!) Last week I reordered ALL of my books, I had to say goobye to some as well… BUT I realise that there are loads of amazing books that I own but STILL have not read. As hard as it was to sort through all of them it feels like I just did a massive book haul and I have all these shiny new books to read!

Last night I decided to start Adele Parks: Love Lies (its like 8 years old, and I’ve had it on my shelf for that long!!)


Have you read it? I am loving the grey with the pink so I just couldn’d help but take a pic…

I should let you know, that every book that has stayed on my shelves which did not fall victim to the book cull of 2017 I have VOWED TO READ! This means I need to read about a book every three days for the next 15 years of my life (which wouldn’t be a bad goal) so I thought I would start with Adele Parks over here. In the past I’ve read more of her stuff but this one I never got round to, I hope it’s a good ‘un.

My book collection and taste is vast… I seem to go through different phases, like I had a whole phase of dense history books, some of which I read at the time, some of which I did not. Some of these got culled but I have kept a few, but I just don’t know if I want to read about the American civil war on a winter weekend. Perhaps after Christmas. and then I have a tonne of plays (I loves the theatre), soo many poetry books, serious novels, lighter novels – all of this is a boring long way of saying I likes a lot of different books)

For dinner I’m having some chicken. I don’t know what I’m going to do with it but just something simple. Simple food when you are poorly is THE ONE.

Then I am definitely going to watch some tv, OMG!!! I THINK I HAVE GREYS ANATOMY TO WATCH.

Shall we all just take a moment to just send some love to Shonda Rhymes who created some of the best characters TV has ever seen. Thanks Shonda. Especially for Cristina. BE MORE CRISTINA was literally my mantra for 2007-2012.

OK and then I totally should get an early night. BUT I BET YOU ANYTHING MY BRAIN WILL COME ALIVE AT 10 PM. Thanks brain. Its awesome when you do that.

So anyway… I digress.

Weekends alone when the SO leaves AHOY!! I shall touch base with you soon and let you know how it went.

I hope that you are able to have some chill alone time soon, I’d love to hear about it.
