Round Up.

Herrow chaps and chapettes!

Not much has been happening since I last checked in with you, still working away and spending money on clothes and shoes.

I turned the ripe old age of 26, as you get older you realise how much birthdays are not a bit deal. BUT I did however have an awesome birthday night with my best buds! The theme was Man v Food, everybody was invited to make big/lots of food and bring drinks. I went for the giant cheeseburger and with Jaimie’s help it was AMAZING.
It was a very drunken night (even though I was horrifically ill, I had viral infection), it wss filled with party games, face paints and people popped on all the trinkets inside their party bags. I loved it and I love my friends.

I also happened to go on a long weekend away to the beautiful city of Budapest. I went with 4 of my buddies and we spent 4 days and 3 nights exploring, taking in the sights and sounds with a pub crawl thrown in for good measure. Budapest is stunning and the weather was quite good, surprisingly warm in October! There is so much history and it was great to learn about it.
I will definitely be going back and this time taking Jaimie as he is DESPERATE to go.

Other things in Kathryn news is that I have a new phone which I love, hiya Galaxy SIII! Burst my lip and hurt my teeth on a drunken night out. Went to the RBS Museum Lates with Lisa and her work friends, again another drunken night out. Took mum to Chamber Street Museum to see the Catherine The Great exhibition, which is a must (it has since finished). Dinner and a meeting with Jaimie’s family for his dad’s 60. Spent more money on clothes and shoes. Treated mum, dad and Jaimie to lunch. Gotten over a viral infection AND cut my fringe in… again.

Round Up/Pictures.

Oh hai there!

It’s been a while hasn’t it…

I was aiming to make the blogging a bit more regular, but I just didn’t find the time. I have been awfy busy working, going out or just being plain lazy.

Here are a few pictures for your lovely little peepers to enjoy, some of the things I have been up to and some sweet treats. I will be writing up another blog post this week, full of the new clothes and shoes that I have been buying, which since July is A LOT.

G & A get hitched!

Last Saturday my dad’s cousin and his parter of 14 years FINALLY tied the knot!  We were not at the ceremony as they wanted a small gathering, but the whole clan turned up for the party, which was fantastic!  It was held in a suite in The Dome on George Street where we were treated to some champagne and canapés on arrival and throughout the night, there was also a DJ who played songs on request, most of them had been put forward a couple of months in advance.  

Now, I like a dance and I was quite surprised to see that Jaimie, my non dancing boyfriend was hardly off the dance floor(!), I’m not sure if it was amount of alcohol that he had consumed or just that he was ‘feeling’ the music and was showcasing some of his best moves (of which he has very few…), however I was not complaining as we rarely dance together, he even had my great auntie up! 

Anyway’s it was a fab night for everyone who attended, more so for the grooms and we were all suitably merry by the end of the night! 

What A Weekend.

Well this weekend was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time(!).  I had the Saturday off which I spent with Jaimie and my nearest and dearest, during the day I was down at my local beach (Portobello) where Jaimie and myself met up with Lisa and puppy Mac for some fun.  I then thought it would be a nice idea to invite my friends round for some much needed banter and drinks, so I sent the texts round and they started arriving at mine at 8pm.  The night continued until 3am and it seems that everyone had a fabby time as did I (it’s been so long since I’ve been with my friends), but I was knackered when they left! 

Sunday morning I awoke and got ready for work (for a 10 hour shift!), sleepy and in a ‘I can’t be bothered going to work’ attitude, but I got into work for 12 and was amazed to see work completely dead.  And was so very very happy when my boss asked me if I wanted to finish early as work wasn’t going to pick up, I jumped at the chance!  So after two and half hours work I was cashed up and sent on my way!  I knew my buds where planning a wee trip away so I joined them on the journey to Cramond beach where walked along in the sand and just sat about enjoying the sun and the company.  I’m hoping next weekend can be just as fun! 






Annual 80’s BBQ.

Last Saturday was Jamie and Ali’s annual 80’s BBQ, which is held at Jamie’s maw and paws house.  Every year the boys spends copious amounts of money on the finest foods and alcoholic beverages, the guests will bring more booze and maybe some nibbles.  This year was no different, no expenses spared, the BBQ was in full swing when we arrived and Jamie’s dad was cooking the food, 80’s music was blasting, there was face painting and the trampoline and hot tub were out(!).  This is the second year that the hot tub has been used and the second time I forgot to bring a swimming costume, however this year that didn’t bother me as I got in fully clothed!  It was a fabby night and I got super drunk, I sadly had to leave at 10:30pm as I was working at 9am the next day. I’m already looking forward to next year!

A Gathing Of The Minds.

Last Friday myself and some of my buds headed along to our friend Chris’s flat for an early birthday party(!).  We arrived at 9pm and I was home by half 12, I am such a lightweight!  It was great to see him and other folks who I hadn’t seen for ages, there seemed to be a dress up theme going on throughout the night…..

Bye Bye Bye.

Since my accident (nearly 8 weeks ago) I have taken EVERY opportunity to go out, in 2 weeks I have had 3 all nighters(!).  

The first night out was for my manager Johnny who was leaving to work in London as a film buyer for Vue (Lucky bugger).  The night started off with everyone meeting in Walkabout for drinks, it was great for me as I hadn’t seen ANY of my work buds for the 6 weeks I was off.  After Walkabout we popped along to Buddy Mulligans down the Grassmarket, then Opium where I thought it would be an AMAZING idea to get up and dance with a gamy foot/ankle (smart move Marshall…), once we had been kicked out of Opuim and the dust has settled from a small confrontation the last place to go was the casino.  This place is a complete dive, but it is open all night/morning, by the time we got there everyone was starting to feel sleepy and some people decided to head home, but not me!  I was there until the bitter end and drunk drunk drunk!  I got home at 9am the next day.  It was a top night and an amazing send off for Mr Carr.
