Life is a funny thing / yet again another list coming your way...

30 April 2013

Life has been good to me lately.
Busy, but oh so good.
I suppose it's why I haven't been around these parts as much as I used to (commenting, stalking, tweeting etc) but I am hoping that things will start to settle now and I can find a routine that means more time to blog. Or I stumble across a part-time job that pays the same as my current full time job. That would be nice too.

(Today's post will be a series of random thoughts/things/links/opinions delivered in a good old list.)

In May I have decided to take part in Jenni's "Blog every day in May" challenge which I am actually really excited about! I'm thinking of it as a kick up the proverbial blog bum.
//
Talking of bums. Mine seems to be getting bigger despite losing some weight. I have yet again ripped two of my work dresses around the bum this week and it is only fecking Tuesday. I feel sorry for Ben and Sylwia who will have to deal with the fallout of this situation.
//
Last night me and Ben spent an extortionate amount of money and time in Sainsbury's, Boots and the trusty Poundstore. It was one of those shopping trips where you have to stock up on EVERYTHING. Cat litter, dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll, toothpaste, mascara, dinners for the week, wine, fresh veg, washing tabs, loo roll, face wipes, bleach, mouthwash....the list was huge and it sure added up to a hefty amount. Carrying it all home was difficult to say the least.

My weekend was awesome.
Awesome.
Awesome.
Awesome.
Saturday was spent chilling out watching films with Ben and Goblin (Goblin actually watches the films - is this normal??) before getting all dressed up and dolled up to go for dinner and drinks for our friend's birthday!
It was quite weird getting ready at 4pm and leaving the house while the sun was shining and kids were still about but it all felt more normal as soon as we got a few jugs of cocktails in.
//
Saturday night was also super amazing because I got to meet the hilarious Michelle for the first time! As a way of saying "Hi" she actually grabbed my aforementioned bum and from that point on I knew we were going to get on perfectly! We had such a laugh with these guys that I am very much considering a trip to San Francisco to go visit them!!
^^ I don't know what we were doing here so don't ask! ^^
^^ Pure Bromance ^^
^^ We weren't keen on having normal pictures taken of us. ^^

Sunday morning was tough.
HANGING.
But we dragged our asses out of bed and went down to East Grinstead to spend the day with Ben's family.
We ate, we snoozed, we read, we watched terrible films (The Brothers Grimm), we ate some more, we snoozed some more and I spilled boiling hot tea all over Ben's foot.
It was a good day.

Oh before I forget...my dress for Saturday was only £13.
THIRTEEN POUNDS!!!!!
Don't I look chuffed as a snug bug?? I still am chuffed about it.
You can find the dress here and my shoes here too.

Discovering these pants in the Poundstore made my day yesterday.
Should I buy them? Model them on here maybe?!!
I'm thinking yes.
