New Year’s Eve

Yep that’s right it is New Year’s Eve and the time is 7:18pm. You are probably wondering why I am not currently downing shots with my friends and dancing on tables. Well that will be coming later. I have to wait for Melissa to finish work at 10 before we can start the drinking shenanigans. So instead I am at this moment sat in my dressing gown and feeling reflective. As is I am sure a lot of people are tonight.

So what have I come up with from this year. Well I think I have been very fortunate when it comes to events. I have been on a lot of holidays (however my credit card is feeling the pain). I have moved into my own place with my best friend and we have had many nights of laughter and silliness.

I have had my family around me to support me when I have been down and pat me on the back when things have gone well.

However I have also had some not very nice moments. I have had the dramas with Mr FWB, starting with ending things on my birthday, followed by telling me I was mistake and ending it with sleeping with one of my work colleagues and flaunting it in front of my face. God he is an arse.

I have also had some issues with friends. Realising that some people are not exactly who they try to make out they are.

I have had emotional breakdowns like when the time my bed broke and funnily enough again today when it broke again!

I do however though I think this year has been a pretty good one. There is nothing I really regret and I think on a whole it has made me a better person. I have had to deal with challenges and overcome sadness but I did it with a smile on my face – or eventually the smile was there.

So what does 2013 hold for me? It is hard to say as right at this moment I do not have any plans. I am hoping to go snowboarding with my Mum in February and I want to tackle some bucket list things like learn to play the guitar and learn another language but as it stands right now there is nothing. Pretty free which is a good feeling. I am not going to make resolutions like stop seeing Mr FWB as I think I would fail on that one however I am going to focus on myself more and if that means I have less time for him then so be it.

I also plan to lose 10lbs in 3 months, I have signed up for the gym for that amount of time so hopefully I will achieve my goal. Other than that I don’t plan to make any.

All I really want is to grow as a person and learn as much as I can.

I hope you all have a great New Year and thank you for reading about 2012. I hope you stick around for 2013 as I feel there are going to be a lot of stories to tell and dramas to report on.

There always is in a Single Girls life J

Where to start?

Well as I posted yesterday I have been very busy recently. Firstly I will start with telling you about my holiday.

It was brilliant!

My family and I had a great time seeing different bits of America and it actually made me feel a little bit like I was travelling again. We stayed in some lovely places and I even got to go horse riding. Not doing that again! There wasn’t really any dramas except I suppose when we got a flat tyre whilst in the middle of nowhere and had to race against time before the air completely ran out. My Dad also proceeded to lose his glasses out the window whilst trying to check the tyre and an emergency stop and race back had to be arranged so we could collect them again.

Las Vegas was a lot of fun however I didn’t win the millions I was hoping for. My friend who I shared a room with was a complete gentleman and there was no awkwardness at all which was good. My parents 40th wedding ceremony went without any issues and the whole event was brilliant. I do not think I have laughed like that for a long time.

I got home about a week ago and the following night I went out for Melissa’s birthday celebrations. I think everyone enjoyed themselves or at least they seemed to. Melissa was so close to having sex with Smallsie however after a lot of trying the boy failed to “perform” and they gave up. Poor guy! I think this has left her even more frustrated and I am seriously starting to think about hiring someone to do the job. At least if they can’t perform I will get my money back J

Obviously this week was Christmas and it was really nice to spend it with the family. Last year I was away travelling and I think it made me realise what I missed. We spent it at my sisters eating food and opening pressies. What more can you ask for!

Now I am back at work, boo! Tonight I am off out with Melissa and a couple of other people. As we are not too sure what we are going to do for New Year we thought we would have a mini celebration tonight.

I suppose you are all wondering how much contact I have been having with Mr FWB. Well it has been quite a lot actually. We spoke whilst I was away and we have seen each other a couple of times since I have been back. Nothing overly exciting to report though. I suppose I am just waiting for him to mess up again.

Anyway I am going to finish up there. My fingers are starting to ache from the lack of typing I have been doing recently

Hope everyone is well and have a great weekend!

What a crazy few weeks!

Sorry I have not been around much this last couple of weeks but with holidays and Christmas it has all gotten a little crazy and busy!

This is just a quick post to let you know, I am still around, I am still blogging and I promise to give you a good update tomorrow.

I am working over the Xmas period but it is quite quiet so I am sure I will have plenty of time tomorrow to write a lot. I do warn you that it will be a really long post. 3/4 weeks of no communication will do that to you J

I hope you all have a great Christmas and like me ate way too much!

Speak again tomorrow


Thursday, 6 December 2012

I go on holiday soon!

Ok so I may be slightly excited about my up and coming holibob J

As I am sure you are all aware, Monday I am off to LA and then to Vegas and I cannot wait.

I really cannot remember how much I have told you about this but the whole reason we are going is because it is my parents 40th wedding anniversary and they are renewing their wedding vows. Amazing that they have made it to 40 years and I could only just manage 2. Goes to show how times have changed.

I am a little sad for Melissa. She had finally met a guy she had quite liked but he turned out to be just a plain old idiot. It is a shame really as her intentions were only to sleep with him and what young guy doesn’t want that. Oh well on to the next one. I am determined to find her someone before her birthday or failing that on her birthday!

I was hoping to have some saucy stories to tell you but I have been so busy I haven’t had the chance to booty call Mr FWB. We have however had some very interesting text message sharing sessions, if you know what I mean (insert winky smile) J

I am however out tomorrow night for my teams Christmas night out and when the drinks are flowing and the Christmas spirit is around who knows what can happen. I am not just talking about with Mr FWB either!

I promise to update you this weekend on the nights events and I really do hope there is a story or two to tell!

I love weekends away!

Sorry once again guys for my lack of blog update. It has been crazy here with Christmas pressie buying and packing for trips. None of which have been bad things J

Last week pretty much went by in a blur. I went to the cinema with Mr FWB on Wednesday which was fine. Film was good and it was just a comfortable easy night.

Thursday I went out for a work Christmas dinner. It was nice because it was free J. I managed to resist the temptation of heading into town for drinks with everyone else and actually went home to get a fairly early night ready for the excitement of Friday


So for anyone who hasn’t been to Rome it is a lovely place. There is so much to see and do and with only a couple of days there we seriously went at it with all we had. We saw the Coliseum, the Vatican, the Spanish Steps and The Trevi fountain. We saw other bits and bobs on route as well but these were the main ones we wanted to see.

It is a strange place as they have these wonderful sights but they are sat on a roundabout or at the end of a shopping street. It didn’t take away from how great they were but it is a shame they haven’t preserved the areas a little more and refrained from building around them.

I had a great time with my Sister and we pretty much spent the whole weekend laughing and drinking wine. What more could you ask for!

Yesterday I got home and started preparing the house for the Christmas decorations. Tomorrow night Melissa and myself are going to put up the tree together. Then the place will really feel Christmassy J

I have quite a lot planned this week but so I actually blog more than once a week I will provide another update on Wednesday! I may even have a saucy story or two to tell!

An eventful but entertaining weekend

Hello all my lovely readers. Sorry I have slacked in posting about my weekend sooner.

So where to start. Ok Friday night. Off I went out with people from work for a leaving do. It was a really good night. The people who were there were nice and good company, even Mr FWB who for once in his life didn’t annoy me at a work event.

Actually the complete opposite. He spent time making an effort to talk to me and then strangely enough kissed me infront of people. This was totally out of character and not like him at all. We weren’t even drunk.

Anyway we of course ended up back at mine where my lovely bed that recently bent in the middle saw itself head closer to the floor! J

Saturday night I went out with a friend who I hadn’t seen for a long time and it was really nice. We went for dinner followed by lots of drinks.

Once again a silly man showed his true colours. One of her male friends who is in a long term relationship joined us but was trying very very hard to play away. Not cool man, really not cool!

Anyway we didn’t let that spoil our night and successfully passed out back at the hotel – good times!

This week I need to really think about packing and then maybe what I want to get people for Christmas. Ahh its coming too soon!

Tomorrow night I am off to the cinema and then Thursday out for dinner. Of course Friday is Rome!!!! Yippee.

Round the world

So instead of doing some work today I decided to plan my round the world epic trip.

Wow there a lot of places I want to see. I feel this is going to be quite costly when I eventually get my backside in gear and actually book it. Does make me very excited to think about though. After my last mini journey I have definitely got the bug.

When you have been away for a while and the trip is coming to the end you start to get really exciting about seeing people. You then get home, get back to the real world for about a week and then decide that nothing has changed whilst you have been away and life is actually quite boring!

I have pretty much felt like that since I came home in Jan. Now time to change it. As my Dad has always said, if you have a problem and you can fix it then do, if you can’t then move on. I can fix this so I shall J

Tonight is Ceroc night and I am really looking forward to it. It will be nice to do something with my Mum and I may actually pick up a move or two!

Tomorrow night I am out for a work colleagues leaving do. I wasn’t going to drink but I have pretty much thrown that idea out the window. I am not really looking forward to seeing Mr FWB out as he always seems to manage to annoy me at these work type things by being all over some other girl. I think I am cool with that now but I guess we will only know after tomorrow night. At least Mr Wise will be there to hold me back if I see red.


Tuesday, 20 November 2012

I go on holiday next week!

Ok so this hasn’t just dawned on me but I hadn’t really thought about it till now. I go to Rome next Friday. It has come round so quickly.

I have started the plan of action for when we get there. When I went travelling I had to cram a lot of sightseeing into such a short space of time that I know the best ways to tackle it. I am normally a go with the flow kind of person but when time is short I like to have a plan.

I am looking forward to having another tick in the box of places I have seen and actually worked out that by the time the end of the year has arrived I will have been in 7 different countries. Ok one of them is England and as I live here so that may not count but I am putting it down anyway J

My weekend just gone was good. Friday was chilled with some TV watching. Saturday I did some exciting house work followed by some even more exciting food shopping. I ended the night by of course and you all know it is coming, going to Mr FWB’s. Well a girl has needs after all!

Sunday I went to the Christmas Fayre and it actually made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I haven’t felt this way about Christmas for such a long time and I don’t know what the change is. I suppose just over all I am a happier person than I was before.

I still don’t believe Christmas should start before the 1st of December though!

Tomorrow night I am supposed to be going to the cinema with Mr FWB but again not sure if that will happen. Then Thursday I am off to Ceroc dancing with my Mum.

We bought a voucher ages ago and rather than let it go to waste we have decided to actually make an effort and go. I pretty much have 2 left feet so this could be very interesting J


Friday, 16 November 2012

Just a quiet one

I am having a quiet weekend this weekend. I was supposed to be out with some friends from work but unfortunately due to spending all my money on booking holidays I had to pull out. I think it is being rearraged though which is good for me.

Tomorrow night Mr FWB has asked me to go round but I am not sure if I will or not. Maybe I will wait to see if he asks me again and then decide.

Sunday I am going to London to an Christmad fayre type thing which should be good and might start to get me into some kind of festive mood

Sad news about Mr Wise. He was supposed to be leaving us to move away but it looks like that will not be happening for a while. Whilst I am happy he is staying around for a while longer I know how important this was for him so that makes me sad. On a brighter note it just means we get to have more time day drinking and heart to hearting like we did the last time we went out J

Anyway I hope you all have actioned packed enjoyable weekends!

Something that may shock you

I recently told you about my friend who ended things with her husband and had started a relationship with someone else


A couple of people who know me that know I write this mentioned how they thought she must have been having some sort of affair before it ended. Now I say some sort of affair as we entered into discussions about what classed as an affair. I do not know legally what is claimed to be an affair but I do not think texting another man should necessarily be classed as an one. I am not saying I think it is right but I do not think it is having an affair.


The reason behind this post is to tell you that she in fact was not having an affair and it actually turns out it was the husband who had been. That was the main reason for the marriage breakdown and therefore her kicking his sorry arse to the curb

So for anybody who read the earlier post and assumed she was in the wrong let this be a lesson to you. Never judge someone when you do not know both sides of the story!

It gets easier but should it?

Firstly I will start by telling you about the good weekend I had. Friday night myself and Melissa went out to our town and drunk and danced a lot. Apart from Melissa trying to palm me off on any guy that walked past it was a good night.

Saturday we went to a comedy night and all three acts were really funny. This is surprising as usually you get one bad one but not Saturday.

Yesterday I went to my parents for a good old roast dinner (can’t beat it) and then spent the night watching TV and eating snacks J

So now for the reason behind the title of this post. Saturday Melissa and I were talking about relationships and getting hurt etc. Comparing notes, who had the worst this, that and the other! We were also discussing how many times we had been hurt in some way by a man and came to the conclusion that the more it happens the easier it becomes to get over it. Now whilst a lot of people think this is ok I am not so sure. Should it really get easier and is it just turning us into hardened people. I think it is hard to give yourself to someone fully when you have been hurt and therefore when it goes wrong is the easiness of bouncing back just a result of this. I remember an old friend of mine and myself used to always go “oh well there goes another one” after a break up. Is that the right attitude to have? I really do not know. I hope I am not turning into a very heartless person when it comes to relationships as one day I do really plan to settle and be happy.

Sometimes we must be hurt in order to grow.
Sometimes we must fail in order to know.
Sometimes we must lose in order to gain.
Because some lessons in life are best learned through pain.

Right or wrong?

The funny weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you are all having a great day.

I have called this the funny weekend because tomorrow night I am off to a comedy club with some family and friends. I have decided to drive so instead I am drinking tonight.

Melissa and me haven’t been out for a very very long time together so tonight we have decided to have some good old fashioned drinking and dancing fun. If there happens to also be some man fun as well then so be it J.

Who am I kidding there is never any man fun when we go out. We are always too distracted with trying stay standing up right! Yep class all the way.

Haven’t really got much else planned for the weekend. Really need to start saving my money for the up and coming Rome and Vegas trips I have planned.

I do lead a very hard life!

Anyway hope your weekends are fun filled and if you don’t wake up ashamed of your actions from the previous night then you are not living life to the fullest J

Friend dilemma

Just thought I would give a quick friend dilemma update.

After a lot of going back and forward I decided to message him and explain the situation. I told him that I hoped I had not led him on in anyway and that I hadn’t complicated the friendship at all.

He replied to tell me he understood and he would never do anything to ruin our friendship and everything was fine. We will now be sharing a room in Las Vegas together and fingers crossed things stay ok.

Mr FWB was messaging me Monday night and things led on to him telling me basically he hadn’t had sex with anyone since me. I do not for one second believe him at all as I have been to Thailand and I know what goes on! Anyway I haven’t really spoken to him that much since and again I am not that bothered. I may arrange one last hurrah for old time sake and get it out of the system but we will see J


Monday, 5 November 2012

Another great weekend!

These are happening all too often. Not that I am complaining but I feel the bad weekend genie is going to strike soon and I am once again going to be left in a drunken crying mess over some boy or some totally insignificant comment someone has made (don’t judge you know we have all done it).

Anyway until that happens I am going to keep on talking about the fun I have had!

So Friday night was my second Halloween party. To begin with when we walked in it all seemed a little strange. Not so much like a party and more like a formal dinner with people dressed in funny clothing. This however soon changed once the drinks started flowing. So that people were not just stood around staring at each other they put on games for us to play.

The first game was where you balance yourself on blocks and beat each other up with padded weapons until one of you falls off. I won that one J

The second game was to wrap a guy up as a mummy! Even though me and my partner did a fab job we lost to the other side! Booo!

The next game was a tug of war. Again myself and my partner beat the other team. Actually we didn’t just beat them, we annihilated them! Never judge a girl by her size is all I can say.

Finally we ended with a little sing off karaoke. I was pushed up to sing and with my cold I cannot imagine that was pleasurable for anyone to hear!

All in all the night was a great success and enjoyed by everyone J

Saturday night we went to my Aunties 60th birthday which involved buffet food and Salsa dancing. What more could you want! We didn’t stay too late though as I still wasn’t feeling great.

To answer the question I am sure you are all thinking (or not) Mr FWB did in fact contact me. Both Friday and Saturday night. Nothing interesting to report from that one but I was quite surprised to hear from him.

Tonight myself and Melissa are off to the good old bonfire and fireworks. Melissa has never celebrated the 5th of November before so once again it will be another experience for her!

I hope everyone had a good weekend!

Halloween take 2

Tonight I have another Halloween party to go to. This one is at my parents work so myself, Melissa and my Sister have been invited.

I am going to recycle my outfit from last weekend as there were no pictures taken so not many people will know. Unfortunately I have quite a bad cold which is rubbish but I am working on the fact there will be alcohol and that cures all kinds of problems.

Tomorrow night I am at another party for my Aunties 60th birthday. This time I am driving though so I won’t have alcohol to see me through. I hope they have tea J

Mr FWB came back today. He messaged me when he landed, nothing interesting really so I didn’t reply. I am not really in the mood today to chat or see him. I have no plans to see him this weekend so it will be interesting to see if he contacts me or not. Will I be bothered if he doesn’t? I don’t think so!

I am not sure if I have mentioned her or not but a friend of mine Amy recently broke up with her husband. I believe she ended it after quite a while of being unhappy. She is now with someone else and because of this fact she is getting a lot of backlash from people. I think this is very unfair. For starters it really isn’t anyone’s business and secondly if she wasn’t happy what was the point in staying that way. I don’t know if she is having some kind of midlife crisis (this isn’t really the right saying as she is only young) or not but I do think she needs some time out to work out what she wants and if this means seeing other people then so be it. I am friends with her husband but my loyalty will stay with her as she is one of my oldest friends. If she does end up deciding that she has made a mistake then she will have to hope it isn’t too late. I am sure she has thought about this though!

This all just made me realise that it is your life and you need to spend it being happy and not spend it trying to please others.

Have a good weekend all!

The 100th post

Wow this is actually my 100th post. I cannot believe I have gotten here so quickly.

I was thinking today about all the things I have wrote in my previous posts. The ups and downs, the naughty bits and the just plain fun ones. I couldn’t really remember everything and thought about reading them all back, then I realised that I really just didn’t want to. Some things really hurt me when I wrote about them and I didn’t want to remind myself of them.

I also think I would kick myself 100 times for everything that has happened with Mr FWB as I know deep down that it is all wrong.

He is coming home from his holiday this weekend and I have to say I am not looking forward to it at all. The past 3 weeks have been really nice and man stress free. I haven’t worried about running in to him or hearing from him. Or knowing that when he clicks his fingers 9 times out of 10 I will go running. As mean as this sounds I really wish he would just stay out there. Guess it just gives me more motivation to get away next year!

So a little Dana update. Well she went on holiday with her man friend and it would seem they are now together. She has finally gotten the man she has always wanted but now that she has him I wonder if it is all she thought it would be. Only time will tell I guess.

Now for the others;

Olivia is still single which amazes me but she seems to be happy with it so good for her

Melissa still needs to get laid. I was trying to set her up with the Blur (our friend) but she seemed a little off about it. Maybe she needs some convincing, or alcohol! J

Steven is fine. Working really long hours so we don’t get to see him that much. Unfortunately we have drifted as friends and are really just roommates now. It’s a shame but I suppose these things happen!

Mr Wise is still waiting on some information about his move, he got the job he went for yay, but it does mean he will be leaving booo! Guess we will just have to make sure we have lots of days out before then.

There isn’t much else to say today other than Happy Halloween and I hope you have all enjoyed reading my 100 posts as much as I have enjoyed writing them!

The great weekend and the dilemma

My weekend as expected was really good! Friday night I stayed in and carved a pumpkin. I was going to do two but got bored after the first one and gave up. He wasn’t that bad in the end J

Saturday I did a touristy thing with Melissa which was nice. It’s funny how you don’t ever do the tourist things close to you until someone makes you. I guess you always figure they will be there so you can come back to them.

Saturday night was the murder mystery. It went down really well and everyone enjoyed themselves. I didn’t actually get that drunk which was surprising but I think it was better that way as I didn’t feel terrible when I woke up. We went into my ex local town and danced the night away J

So now for the dilemma. It would seem one of my friends – let’s call him Kevin – has a thing for me. Now Kevin is lovely and I have been friends with him for years but I do not and never will see him like that. I knew a couple of years ago he liked me but a couple of people explained to him it wouldn’t be right and he left it alone. Now it seems he has decided to try again.

The problem is he is coming to Las Vegas in December and was supposed to be sharing a room with me. Obviously that can now not happen and we need to rethink the sleeping arrangements. I feel bad as he is a lovely guy but just not my type. Now do I say something to him and explain and possibly make the friendship uncomfortable or do I leave it alone and pretend I don’t know! Ahh this is so difficult. Either way I don’t feel happy about it.

Any suggestions would be very welcomed!


Friday, 26 October 2012


So my favourite time of year is Halloween.

All the other holidays -  Christmas, Valentine’s day etc. are all focused on people getting together and especially with Valentine’s day it is all about being with someone. Halloween is not like that at all. It is about dressing up with friends and usually when you are older getting pretty drunk and playing games.

Tomorrow night I am off to my sisters for a murder mystery night. For anyone who hasn’t played you basically get into characters and someone dies. You then spend the night trying to work out who did it. As I am hosting this one I actually know who is the victim and who is the murderer but it isn’t spoiling the fun for me. I am actually looking forward to trying to throw people off.

I have decided this year to go as a witch! The outfit is well…… interesting. Let’s just say none of you would let your children/younger sisters go out wearing this but as I am a grown up, I am allowed.

After the party we are heading into the local town of where I used to live and I cannot wait. I have not been out there for ages and the people who I am going out with are some of my closest friends and we never fail to have a good night.

I haven’t been out drinking for such a long time. I hope I can still keep up J

Tonight is mostly going to be spent carving pumpkins. I have never been good at it under supervision so good knows what they are going to look like if I am left on my own!

Anyway hope you all have great weekends as I am sure I will be J

Sorry I am so bad

And unfortunately I don’t mean in the sexual good kind of way

I have neglected my blogging duties and for that I would like to apologise.

Work has been so very busy and as that is what is funding my travelling I have had to focus on that! Damn work getting in the way of things.

Well my holiday was as I said very lovely however as it was quiet I had a lot of time to think about things. Being left with my own thoughts is never a good idea. I thought a lot about Mr FWB and how I really felt about him. It is confusing as I do like him but I genuinely could never be with him. He has been away on holiday and when he didn’t contact me I didn’t mind but when he did I was happy. Silly feelings getting confused!

Anyway I promise to update again tomorrow and to make it a good one!

Dana is back off her holiday now so I certainly need to get some information about that one J


Monday, 22 October 2012

Im baaaack!

Hello all! Have you missed me? Ok don’t answer that one

Well I am back and refreshed and feeling great. I am actually giddy I think J

There is no particular reason for my upbeat mood right now, I am just really loving life and no before you ask I am not high!

My holiday was lovely. It was a great chance to relax however when we first set off it seemed that everything that could go wrong would! Firstly there was a problem with one of the roads we had to go down which meant there was a lot of traffic and too say my Dad is not a patient man is an understatement. When we finally picked up speed we ended up hitting a low flying pigeon! Too be fair it flew into us and we were lucky it didn’t smash the wind screen. Poor thing! L

When we finally arrived at the airport we were delayed by an hour which isn’t that uncommon so we were not too bothered. We made it safely to the other end where we then proceeded to wander around the airport looking for where we would collect the car from. After about an hour of going up and down in lifts we finally found the car hire station – with its hour long queue. Great fun. Good news is the guy was so fed up of moany people that when he got to us and we spoke politely to him he actually upgraded our car for free. Result!

Then came the secret squirrel mission. We had to drive to near the apartment and head into an industrial estate where we were told to find a safe hidden behind a door to collect our keys and boy it was well hidden. We finally found it however when we entered the code we were given – nothing. Yep that’s right it was broken!! So a quick phone call to the emergency number and out someone came to open it for us. The rain had apparently broken it (this was the only time it rained when were there so pleased with that). Anyway keys in hand off we went to find our apartment.

The rest of the holiday was spent sunbathing, eating and drinking. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a week.

I am going to have to cut the blog short I am afraid as I have to do some work (my super sidekick is once again off) however if I have time I will carry on tomorrow J

Hope you have all had a great week!


Saturday, 13 October 2012

Were all going on a summer holiday

Well I am anyway! Just a quick note to say I am off sunny Spain and as I do not think I will have access to a computer there will be no posts!
I promise to fill you in on all the juicy gossip I have been saving up when I am back

Hope you all have a great week! See you soon!

The funniest thing I have heard in a while

So last night we all went out for a friend’s birthday. We ate and drank a lot! Mr FWB was there and yes that’s right he ended up back at mine.


I have just this second received a message from Steven asking if I had a good night and that maybe we need to get signs on our doors saying whose room was whose. I didn’t have a clue what he was going on about so I asked him to explain further. Well it turns out Mr FWB got up in the middle of the night to go to the toilet and got a little bit lost. He ended up walking into the wrong room and tried to climb into bed with Steven! Something he clearly failed to mention this morning when I was dropping him home.

Thank god Steven was ok about it as I can’t imagine many men would find the funny side to that. I have literally just sat here crying my eyes out with laugher with people around me thinking I am crazy as they have no idea what is going on! Good times.


Monday, 8 October 2012

Woo hoo I did it

That’s right people. I completed my first ever half marathon! I managed to get round in 2 hours 30 mins which was slower than I had hoped for but I did not anticipate all the hills on the route. Wow they were killers.

I am in so much pain right now though. I feel great for doing it but my body hates me!

That’s one thing crossed off the bucket list J

Now time to relax before my holiday where I am going to do some more relaxing!

As for other things the weekend held for me. Friday night I stayed at Mr FWB’s. He is a really strange one. When I decide we are nothing more than FWB’s he comes along and does something random that makes my brain hurt. Friday night he recorded a programme for me to watch because he knew I liked it. So strange!

Anyway yesterday after my run we celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving and I have to say I haven’t had that much fun at dinner time for a very long time. My family were there along with some friends, Steven and his lady and a couple of Melissa’s family. The atmosphere was great as everyone was having a brilliant time and all got on really well. I have to say it was the perfect end to a hard but satisfyingly achieved day!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and to all my Canadian readers “Happy Thanksgiving”

The time has nearly come

Ahhh! It is nearly here. The half marathon. People keep asking me if I am ready for it! Well I can put one foot in front of another so as long as I don’t suddenly forget how to do that I should have no problem. The issue is how fast I can do it!

Yesterday I booked my trip to Rome with my sister. Very excited about that. Another cross through my bucket list (yep Rome was on there).

I really need to get my act together for going on holiday next Saturday. I am so unprepared for it which is totally unlike me. Hopefully tomorrow I will have some time to pick up the essentials and go through all the summer clothes I had neatly packed away (chucked them on top of my wardrobe).

Also this weekend we are celebrating Canadian thanksgiving. After my half marathon I plan to eat my body weight in Turkey. Woo hoo!

Hope you all have a good weekend!

I go on holiday soon

With all the preparation for my half marathon I actually keep forgetting that I am going on holiday next week!

I have to say that it is well needed and Mr FWB has just informed me that he is looking to go away the day I get back. That means we won’t see each other and possibly have no contact for nearly 3 weeks. I think this is a good thing because as I said I need to draw back from him and this is certainly one way to do it!

I have also just made plans to go to Rome with my sister the end of November which is really exciting as I have always wanted to go there.

I promise one day I will start saving for my travels however I think that if I am spending my money at the moment on going to different countries then technically I don’t need to save that much for next year! J

Oh a funny thing happened today. My work have provided us with uniforms to wear on Sunday for the half marathon. To say I would look better in front of Henry the VIII as a jester would without a doubt be an understatement. It certainly gave all my work colleagues a good laugh. I have however declined the offer to wear said outfit and have decided to opt for my own running trousers.

It is getting so close now. I cannot believed I signed up for this 7 months ago. Just goes to show how quickly time passes!
