Pyjamas All Day.

Currently still in my pyjamas, on the sofa with a blanket on me, a cat snuggled beside my left leg and one laying on my chest. I am ill, I have been in for over a week with a really bad cold which has felt like the flu (but not as severe), this has resulted in me taking 4 days off over 6 days. Now as I am a contracted worker this means that I don’t get paid for any sick days that I have so the next two pay slips are going to be crap! Yey!

I thought, as I lay here on the sofa, my lungs feeling weak and my cough sounding like an old dog barking that I might do a wee update post. It’s been a while, some months since I posted I thought why not update my blog with the many goings on on my life (I lie, there are hardly any…). So here goes..

I’m still in my temp job which has been extended until the end of April, which only gives me a couple of months to secure a permanent job, this is not stressing me out at all. NOT ONE BIT. NO STRESS HERE, BUDDY!

I’ve rediscovered my love of reading and books with the thanks to the library. I used to love reading and then I got a Kindle and I realised I didn’t read as much because I actually loved holding a book in my hand and turning a page. I’m currently reading The Acid House, by Irvine Welsh (side note, my cousin was one of the producers on the film, which I’ve still not seen…). I’ve also read Girl Unknown, The Inner Fix and I’ve got The 4 Week Body Blitz currently out on loan, unfortunately I’ve been to ill to start it BUT that will change shortly when I’m fighting fit.

Last year I dropped quite a few lbs which has resulted in my body shape changing and me feeling so much better (*please ignore the fact that I am currently ill), I’ve been wanting to drop the weight that so sneakily creeped up on me over the past few years and with the impending ‘Marshall / Wilson’ wedding I wanted to make sure I look decent in a pretty dress! I’ll be keeping up the lifestyle of exercise and healthier eating long after the wedding (fo’ life, yo!).

Speaking of wedding, it seems that after being engaged for over a year we have finally decided to get married this year. THIS YEAR, 2018. In under 10 months to be precise, we’ve provisionally booking our wedding date and it seems that we will be signing on the dotted line this coming Sunday. I’m looking forward to actually getting it booked so we can start to put things together and organise all the bits and bobs that go with organising and planning a wedding. Like most, if not all ‘brides / grooms to be’ I have an Amazon Wish list and a Pinterest full of ideas.

Well I think I’m going to leave the post here as I’m feeling pretty tired and might head back up to bed for a well needed snooze.

See ya! 🤧

Round Up.

It’s been a while since I’ve bothered to write a post, don’t get me wrong I’ve thought about it (a lot) and had ideas for posts but I’ve been ‘busy’ watching telly and being generally a lazy bitch.

As I type this I’m in the bath with a face mask on looking all kinds of alien like, listening to The XX and to get me back into the swing of things I thought I would do a wee ‘Round Up’ post.

So what’s been happening I hear you ask… I went on holiday with my friends to Croatia, changed jobs and companies at the end of August, got engaged in September and I also turned 30. THAT IS IT. To be honest 2016 was a good year for me, the new job and getting engaged were the two biggest things that happened. Leaving a call centre and taking on a more administrative roll has been an absolute fucking delight! Anyone who has worked in a call centre will know how utterly sole destroying it is, the people are great and I miss all my old work pals, but I cannot be happier to have left!

Onto the ENGAGEMENT, I will be, at some point in the near future ‘Mrs Wilson’ (or ‘Marshall-Wilson’ as I would like to be known). Me and J are in our now 10th year (!), that’s a bloody long time to be with someone so it was inevitable that it was going to happen (and I had an idea that it would be before my 30th). The proposal was nothing fancy or cheesy it was done after dinner in our house (*to be honest he could have asked me in the car driving to the shops and I would have said yes). Thankfully I am OBSESSED with my ring and it fitted so there was no need to resize it, although for the first couple of weeks my ring finger would swell up (I think it was trying to reject it!).

We’ve had the obligatory engagement party which coincided with a Halloween party held by and for my family and now we in the very early stages of planning so hopefully in the next couple of years we will have tied the knot.

I’m hoping that 2017 will be another good year for us and we make changes to the house and organise our wedding, but no doubt there will be some bumps in the road (which will be tackled head on), but I hope whoever and where ever you are that you enjoy what the new year brings you. For now I’m going to top up my bath with hot water as it has gotten cold and contemplate getting out in the next half hour before I turn into a prune.

Hopefully (and I say this every time!) I will be and bit more consistent with this blogging malarkey! But for now, bye Felicia! 👋
