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.

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

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

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!
