There are many things in life that make me feel less of a woman. My inability to understand and use make-up, particularly eyeliner, constantly makes me feel inadequate. The fact that I'm neither capable nor willing to spend time doing fancy things with my hair is just something I've come to accept whenever I read articles about supposedly easy Game of Throne inspired hair tutorials. The world of fashion is a fucking minefield and I'm constantly in danger (or more likely guilty) of blowing myself up with my misguided attempts to dress myself. I can't walk in heels, I don't worship the ground Beyoncé walks on, I hate romantic-comedies and I think Amy Schumer is incredibly overrated. So, yeah, I'm not getting many girl points for my day to day life. However, the thing that really sets me apart from a large number of women is my weirdly strong feelings about candles.

This week has been pretty heavy work wise. I made a significant decision about my future there and am freaking out a little bit. I'm sure it'll all work well but massive changes are always unnerving. We've also been hit with a huge case of flu and everyone has been off ill. Subsequently, everyone else has been super busy to make up for it. I've been feeling myself getting ill as the week went on so I've had no energy to read on an evening. I'm definitely going to get ill over my two days off though so it'll give me a good excuse to spend all day in bed reading. In other news, after shopping last week, my sister and I have decided on a bridesmaid's dress. Neither of the ones we bought last week but a pretty nice option. I'm just happy the awkward fashion parades are over. Walking up and down and having pictures taken of myself is just hell. God knows how I'm going to cope at this bloody wedding. I must remember to take a book.

my favourite Shakespeare adaptations for people who don't like Shakespeare. I remember really wanting to write a top 10 list of my favourite adaptations but couldn't decide on anything other than the top 2. The first being the BBCs epic The Hollow Crown. The second is one probably my favourite straight Shakespeare adaptations of all time. So, in honour of the 400th anniversary, that seems like a great place to start. As it is also the play that inspired the name of this blog it seems like fucking fate has handed us a great opportunity.

So we're here on another Monday with another name. I'm changing my mind about this day of the week more than the guy in that fucking Katy Perry song. Although, I think the need to shorten my Monday posts is a necessity. It's been another example of me sitting with the page open in my browser being ignored whilst I try and stop myself spending more money. After yesterday's post and with the impending doom of tomorrow's review, Monday just gets lost in the drama. So I'll attempt this short format for a while and consider the possibility of changing to a Friday instead. At least that would give me a more balanced week. I am a little heavy at the start of the week. Working weekends means that I tend to be a bit shit at the start of the week. I dream of a Dolly Parton lifestyle: working 9-5 Monday to Friday. I miss my weekends.

This week has been a strange one. I'm back at work and I've instantly fallen back into the stressed, tired pattern that always plagues me. I really need to start stepping up my game to get out of there as soon as possible. There's only so long a person can go on pretending they want to work in catering when it's one of the last things they want to do. I've spent too many days of my life worrying about how may fucking avocados we need. In case you're wondering, it's fucking loads. As you can tell I'm pretty moody today. Yesterday I went bridesmaids dress shopping for my sister's wedding and it has left me with even more body image insecurities than before. Just when I thought it wasn't possible, I have to go shopping for a dress with my super sporty, super slim twin sister. But let's not dwell. There have been a few positives to the week.
