I've Changed

It's 9.50 and I'm working at home...

I haven't done that for years!

It's not something I actually agree with, but at the moment I'm literally running out of time during the day and all I'm actually doing is typing up my notes while I'm watching TV.

It'll help me in the long run... !


May / June Date Nights

So in my lack of posting, I'm very late with reporting May and June's date nights - but they DID happen!

May's date night was Sky Box Office Night.

We've had Sky for a few years now, but we've never ordered a box office movie. Can't really explain why, we just never have! 

We watched Flight - the Denzel Washington film - but were both REALLY disappointed! If we'd not paid to watch it, we probably would've switched off. 

June's date was to have a day at the coast. 

Originally, the plan had been to have a day out, just the two of us, but we ran out of time with everything else that was going on. 

We did, however, spend a weekend in Brighton in June. With my mum. Not necessarily romantic, but it was lovely all the same, and we did make a point of having some time on out own. We played in the arcades, drank lager and lime, but we didn't paddle in the sea - it was a bit cold, to be honest!!

We had a really lovely weekend.

As you can see, I'm making progress with my "take more pictures" resolution, too - more than 300 over the weekend... whoops!

July's date night is my responsibility, and I'm very much looking forward to organising it... Plans are already in place and I CANNOT WAIT!



Feeling Crafty!

Hello lovelies

So sorry it's been so long again. I literally don't know my arse from my elbow at the moment. It's nice that I'm busy, but equally frustrating. I'm incredibly tired, and don't remember the last time we had a weekend where we weren't doing something. And I think it's set to stay the same until the end of SEPTEMBER! Man, it's mental!

Anyway, in between starting a new job, being incredibly busy at the weekends, trying to get my arse in gear with losing weight and everything else going on, I have managed to do some crafting, which has proved quite therapeutic!

I found this via Pinterest and showed it to a friend whose brother was getting married. She was looking for something a bit different for a present for them and liked this, but wanted to do it herself... It turns out she's the least crafty person in the world, so she came to mine and I made it for her...

Her brother and his new wife loved it, so that made me quite happy, too! 

Once we'd made that, someone from (old) work saw it, and asked me to make some sort of calendar that her sister could use as a countdown to her wedding for the last 4 weeks. Again, thanks to Pinterest, I found this, and reproduced it to make this!

The lady that asked me to make it framed it and gave it to her sister yesterday at her hen do along with a dry wipe marker so that she can add to it for her last month as a Miss! 

I also made another hen do memory book this week, (as well as a penis pasta necklace), but I don't have pictures of either of those, unfortunately! 

I've got plans to make a present for the wedding (or maybe two, I'm not sure yet!). 

I'll keep you posted!
