If at first you don’t succeed

What a good weekend. I actually managed to stay in the whole weekend and it was nice. I wont however be able to do that again for a while as I have a lot coming up. It was nice to relax though. Smallsie and The Creep didn’t make it down which was a shame as they had to work so me and Melissa went to Stonehenge and then attempted to watch a film Saturday night (we couldn’t get the PlayStation to work so mostly sat watching a black screen).

I have decided to try out internet dating again. As I said my friend had success on there recently so figured I would give it another shot. I am going to ask her what she did though when it came to going for dates as I think she had a few.

This week I am quite busy with the end of the month at work and then our half year end party on Friday. I also need to try and fit in getting my hair extensions put in and going out running. I think tonight we are off to a pub quiz as well which should be fun.

I hope everyone had a good weekend and a note to my super sidekick – it’s great to have you back! -x-

The sun is shining, everyone is happy!

Again I need to apologise for my lack of blogging recently. Work has been very very busy but my super sidekick is back next week so I will be able to sit back with my feet up and blog until my heart’s content.

As the title suggests the sun is shining. Finally the rain has given up and a heat wave has come. This is lovely however it is a pain for my running (not that I am complaining). My new trainers arrived the other day and I finally got to use them last night. The weather made it hard to run but the trainers were amazing. I have never been this excited over a piece of sports equipment before. Oh dear what is happening to me!

Also my hair extensions arrived but unfortunately I did not anticipate how big my head was so I need to order more. Hopefully these will arrive next week.

Tomorrow night is the start of the Olympics so we are off to my Mum and Dads for a Fondue and to watch the opening ceremony. Then Saturday we are going to attempt to do a little bit of sightseeing by going to Stonehenge and then have a bbq. A couple of mine and Melissa’s friends are coming again. I think I can give them names now as they are making an appearance more and more. We shall call them Smallsie and The Creep. I will let you know why these names another time J.

Anyway I hope the sun is shining where ever you are as it really does make everyone happy!

Another great weekend!

This weekend myself and Melissa went to see some friends. It was such a great weekend. We spent Friday night catching up with one friend whilst drinking wine and reminiscing about our travelling days. Then on Saturday night we went out into their local town and drunk and danced the night away. Drinks were only £1 each which was amazing but did result in it being a little messy.

I unfortunately couldn’t find one single guy to catch my eye. I honestly do not know what is wrong with me at the moment. I genuinely cannot find anyone attractive. One of my friends has however managed to meet a really lovely guy from online dating so I was thinking of maybe giving that bad boy another try. We will see.

We are definitely going to try one of these lock and key parties soon though as they look like fun and another couple of my friends met doing that.

Haven’t got a huge amount planned for this week. Just going to do some more running and hopefully my hair extensions turn up soon so I can put those in. Not sure if I have mentioned them before but as I said to my friend when he asked why I was getting them, simple – boy breaks girls heart, girl dyes hair orange (by mistake obviously) girl dyes hair back to brown and then decides longer hair is the answer. Any girl reading this will know exactly what I mean J

Trip to Vegas

As you all know I am going to Vegas in December which is great however I have no one to share my room with me L

I honestly did not think it was going to be that hard to find someone however it is pretty expensive and people just do not have the money to spend right now. My brother in law thinks I should find a guy, check his bank balance and invite him regardless of whether I like him or not. It may come to this soon if I cannot find anyone!

On a brighter note it is nearly the weekend and on this one myself and Melissa are off to see some friends we met travelling. I am really excited to see them as the last time was before new year. I think tomorrow night is going to be spent travelling and then catching up. Then Saturday we are going to a concert and out on the town. It sounds like the girls have a lot of things lined up for us so it should be a pretty action packed one.

I am in a bit of a funny mood today. I am not sure why but I think I am just tired. Too much burning the candle at both ends. I spoke to Mr FWB yesterday (we work together as you know so it is hard sometimes not to) and I told him we cannot be friends and it was to be work chat only. I hope he just sticks to that as I am always easily swayed back into the old ways.

I am however quite proud of myself at the moment as I have managed to get my running up to 4 miles. I think this is quite an achievement for me as I couldn’t even run a mile without stopping before.

Anyway have a good weekend all (I know there is still one day of work left but I don’t think I will get to blog tomorrow so I will say it now)

What a weekend!

Well that weekend was certainly eventful. I don’t even know where to start!

Ok so Olivia arrived Saturday lunch time and I was so excited to see her. Just before her arrival I had a great idea to dye my hair back to blonde. The only problem with that was the previous Thursday I had dyed my hair nearly black. Now I am not sure if any of you have ever tried to strip your hair but the following happened – first we put the eggy smelling liquid on my head, covered my hair with clingfilm. I then proceeded to sit and wait for the colour to be stripped out whilst dreaming of having beautiful blonde hair (also in my mind there was few highlights as well, not really sure how I thought this was going to happen). Anyway I can confirm that blonde hair was not what I ended up with. More an orange with black patches mixture! OMG disaster.

Bless Olivia when I showed her she tried to keep a straight face and say it wasn’t that bad but as I was not blind I knew the truth! Anyway a quick trip to buy some more hair dye and back to brown I went. Well that was a fun game.

So that night a couple more of my friends arrived and we decided to head into town. Now I would like to mention that the previous night before I found out about Mr FWB’s goings on I had told him that I was going out so he knew where I would be. Yep that’s right he turned up with one of his friends. Now I wouldn’t have minded so much however when his friend saw me he mouthed “Oh sh*t” to Mr FWB like I was some kind of drama causer. It also showed that whatever Mr FWB told his friend, clearly made him out to be some kind of saint and me a crazy woman.

I decided to ignore them both and went and had some drinks with my friends. We left soon after to only be followed by them to the next pub. I then pretty much spent the whole night trying to avoid running in to him which kind of ruined it a little bit for me as I couldn’t really relax.

Overall the night was good but it could have been better if it hadn’t once again been for Mr FWB!

Anyway yesterday was spent chilling and eating a lot. Diet starts today!


Saturday, 14 July 2012


Ok so I had to do a quick update on the FWB situation. The dirty dog was only messaging me last night whilst out on a date with another girl. How do I know this? Well the fool went to where one of my best friends works and she saw him.

Once I found this out there were tears and frustration but most of all I was just angry. I honestly believe this was exactly what I needed to break the ‘spell’. I text him and told him to never contact me again and that I was sick of never being good enough. He didn’t reply but I honestly didn’t care. I said my bit, end of.

I thought this morning I would wake up feeling really sad (like has happened in the past) but noooo I woke up feeling angry with him and kind of free. This is a good thing I think.

I really am too good for him. I mean Christ the guy really does not have much going for him at all. I wasn’t going to say anything but the other day he crashed his car and now is going to lose his license for drink driving. Can you say loser!

Anyway had to quickly get this out. Now time to enjoy the rest of my weekend with Olivia and Melissa! J

Proud of me!

So I am a little bit proud of myself. I haven’t had any contact with Mr FWB since Monday. For me that is really good. I have completely resisted the urge to contact him. It has also helped that he has not contacted me too but hey that’s not important.

I am still frustrated that I do have the urge to contact him though. I mean I know he is bad for me, I know he uses me, I know we will never be together. So why do I still want to keep going back for more. Maybe I will invent a drug which people can take that helps them get over someone. I would be a millionaire. As that is likely not to happen I guess the only thing for it is to find a rebound. Just something that can make me think there is more out there than just him. Time to start mission “One night stand”. I feel like I should have music playing as I say that. Bit like something a superhero would have. Just call me Supershagger. Ok may need to rethink that name. Wish me luck people.

I teased the other day about Dana. Well now that she is no longer with the boy I can actually tell you that she may have had a little kissy session with both man A and it turns out (she told me at the weekend) man B as well in Ireland. Naughty girl. All of this whilst texting the boy telling him that she wasn’t doing anything. She has also been (and for some time it would seem) seeing an old flame of hers. I honestly cannot keep up! I can barely remember one guy’s name let alone 4. She is clearly a practiced lady at this.

Anyway nearly the weekend! J

Time for a new start

What a great weekend. Melissa got the job! Yay! So Friday, me, Dana and Melissa went out to celebrate. We were joined by a couple of other friends and it actually turned out to be a really good night. Lots of drinking, silly dancing and being eyed up by old men. What more could you ask for from a night out! J

I did however once again fall into the trap of messaging Mr FWB. I was very close to going to his but luckily for me he fell asleep so I didn’t.

Saturday night we had a Summer ball to go to with my parents, Sister and brother in law. It was really funny. We watched people attempt to learn the jive and then bet in a casino. We actually won quite a few times unfortunately we were not playing with real money. The night ended with Mr FWB drunkenly texting me practically begging me to go to his. I ignored him!

Sunday we just chilled out really. We have so much coming up that it was nice to have a relaxing day. We (me and Melissa) have booked tickets to go to see a couple of our friends next weekend and this weekend we finally have Olivia coming down. I cannot wait to see her! I am so excited.

So the time for new start once again refers to Mr FWB. I think I actually want to start dating again and I can’t do that with him hanging around. I am currently sat making plans with Melissa as to where to meet new potentials. As for the previous potential, he is out of the question.

I need to remember to update you on the men in Dana’s life – lets just say a little more happened in Ireland than I may have let onto before!

Hope you all had eventful weekends!

A possible potential

Wow this week has been busy. My sidekick at work has been off so I have had double the amount of queries, problems and stupid questions to deal with. What fun! She is back now though so I am taking a break to catch everyone up on the goings on in my life.

As the title suggests there is a possible potential. It is very early days and has kind of come out of the blue. He is a friend of a friend and I got talking to him about a month ago when we went out in London. I had known him for years but we had never really had much contact with each other. Anyway he messaged me on good old Facebook the other day asking how I was and how he had enjoyed chatting to me on the night out. We have since swapped back and forth a few messages. I am not sure how I feel about him (Melissa thinks I should go for it but I think she really means sleep with him) but I honestly don’t know. I think if he asked me out for a drink or something I would more than likely say yes but we will see. I may be jumping the gun slightly and he may just be being polite.

I am currently waiting on the edge of my seat to hear whether Melissa has a job or not. I am keeping my fingers crossed. We have a lot of plans which involve money so it would help a lot if she got one J

This weekend we are off to a summer ball with my parents. Again fancy party dresses, dancing and cheap drinks. My 3 favourite things!

So it looks like Steven is getting a little serious with a potential of his own. He didn’t even come home the other night the naughty boy. Good for him though!

The housewarming

This weekend was our housewarming party. It wasn’t really a party as such as we didn’t really invited that many people. We just wanted a quiet BBQ and to begin with that is what we got. It then turned into a drunken visit to town mess. Of course!  Two of mine and Melissa’s friends from travelling came to see us which was great as we hadn’t seen them for so long. Melissa however got a little drunk (ok very) and decided she was going to try and make out with one of them. Unfortunately for him she would have made out with a table leg given half the chance (yes she was just that drunk). After we got back to the house she decided she was going to have a heart to heart with said guy. The only problem with this is she does not actually remember what was said. We are now waiting to find out if she declared her undying love (this would not be true) or was actually honest and told him he was lovely but not the man for her. In the meantime we are avoiding all contact with him for fear of a marriage proposal.

I myself was not innocent in the foolishness. I decided I would send Mr FWB a barrage of text messages ranging from wanting him, to telling him never to talk to me again. Yep we all get a little silly when we drink don’t we. Wont be doing that for a while (ok well not until Saturday anyway) J

Yesterday was Canada day so we went up to London where the celebrations were taking place. It was really good fun and I may have found a new love for hockey. Going to try and get to see a real game soon so we shall see if I still find it as exciting. I also tried Poutine for the first time. For anyone who doesn’t know what that is it involves chips, cheese and gravy and apparently very popular in Canada. It was good!

This week I am going to have a chilled one. I need to save my money and not drink! Apparently it is bad for your health. Who knew.

Oooo I believe Dana has broken things off with the boy! I am not too sure of the details but knowing Dana as well as I do I am sure it won’t be long before there is someone new on the scene, if of course there isn’t already.

I think we are going to try a lock and key party soon with Melissa so I will report back on that when it happens.

Hope everyone else had a good weekend and for all my Canadian readers, Happy Canada day for yesterday J
