Well after last week its about bloody time I had some good things happening around here!

Apologies for being less active on the blogging front – I’ve had a busy week -but a good one so in case you’re getting ready to send out the search party and send these links to all my family and friends…I’m still alive…and happy for a change lol. -I’ll leave updates on hubby (really good) and ‘the friend’ (so-so) for another post.

Work is going well, I’m absolutely in love with the girl I’m working for. We spent a few hours this week sorting out her room in preparation for moving in a few months….I LOVE organising -even more so when its someone else’s as I don’t have that sentimental value kicking in and can be ruthless (with her permission of course) We get on great, we laugh constantly and so far its definitely refreshing to get out of the house and forget about anything to do with home life. Its nice to focus on someone else, to help someone else and to enjoy it, its rewarding -of course there’s the pocket money I make from it- but aside from that its just good…it makes me feel good.

On hearing about our recent parking fine my mum kindly sent me a little financial treat – I didn’t ask for it because we weren’t going hungry or anything but man I’m grateful. I suppose that’s what mums are for lol but at 27 -and married- it shouldn’t be necessary. It isn’t really – hubby felt like a let down – but I explained to him its just what she does; we didn’t NEED it, we didn’t ASK for it…but we have got it now. She’s like me…if she’s got it…you can have it and she never expects it back.

The same day I got a letter from my granny with some more cash in it…so we could ‘buy ourselves an ice cream’ which was another nice surprise. All in all we pretty much ended up with the entire parking fine back so I’d say that’s a win lol.

My Tesco club card vouchers came in…whoop whoop… and seeing as there’s an exchange going on I was able to double my vouchers giving me £20 to spend online (or in store but I chose online seeing as my local Tesco is probably the inspiration for THE local shop in the League of Gentlemen) SO…with well needed new clothes for me in my basket (boring basics like undies, socks and t-shirts that you never want to spend REAL money on) I went to exchange my vouchers and found that I still had previous credits on my account which I had never used…so £40 in total! Hello well needed new FUN clothes for me too 🙂 £40 worth of clothes (and you know with Tesco’s value that’s a LOT of items) AND free delivery if you pick up in store….so all of that for free 🙂 yay me Mrs bargain hunter! ‘every little helps’ and all that 🙂

English: wedding photography Français : photog...

Mine looked nothing like this (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I found a voucher in a ‘boots’ magazine for 50 free photo prints when you order online… Photos have been on my list of things to get since we got married. I love my photos but printing -although relatively cheap- just isn’t worth the money – or top priority when you’re trying to set up house. Aside from one big-ish print and 3 normal sized I don’t have any other prints from our wedding day; we sent our relatives discs with them on so they could choose and print the ones they wanted (cheeky I know). I had started a wedding scrap book before the big day documenting all the trials and potentials for dresses/cakes/decorations etc (even for the small occasion it was) and wanted to have photos of the outcome throughout too but that’s never been finished…SO…50 free prints (99p for postage) are headed my way ready to finish what I started – and send one or two to the older ones in the family as well.

Looking back over them and choosing the ones I wanted was actually really nice – considering all the shit we’ve been through this year- I was surprised at how nice it was to look back at them…AND it gives me an excuse to get the glue and out get creative 🙂

Speaking of creative…I’ve been asked by Lieutenant Mo from the Rome Construction Crew to write a few posts for the new RCC website which I’m really excited about so I’ll be busy doing those on the side too…better get my motivational/positive head on.

I’m off to work in a minute – yup working on a Saturday… but hubbys at work anyway so I figured I could either do housework, alone…for free OR I could organise for someone else, with company…and get paid 🙂 and tonight….oh yes…it is EUROVISION!!! WHOOP WHOOP! Me and my family used to watch it together, put a few pounds in a pot, score each act, tally up the total and pick one winner each…then whomever won (or came closest if none of our choices won) would get the pot. We’ve not been able to do that for the past few years but this time I’ve got my score sheets ready (roped in the hubby but telling him about the skin-tight outfits and fitties) I’ve actually placed a real bet (just a little one) and my mum is playing along at home with her phone to hand so I’m really excited; sad and tacky? yes! But loads of fun? Of course!

Anyone else watching it tonight?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

    May I venture that you are almost back to your ‘old’ self this week? New job going well, happy vibes, shopping, money coming in, photos ordered. Even Eurovision (sorry, can’t do it, can’t even be in the same room, must be my age) to look forward to. It seems to be a young/gay thing these days. Most younger people I know, and my gay friends, all seem to have parties for this dire songfest.
    As D. Bowie continued..’Turn and face the change’…
    As ever, Pete. X

    After being out of touch for a few internetless weeks, I’m so glad to see you are moving away from being Comfortably Numb – you are more like an Amazing Warrior Princess now. Run with it!

    That’s an amazing week that you so deserved. Fingers crossed that the happy keeps rolling into the year 2432. Just hit random numbers there. Not a big fan of singing contests, but I have to clean a house all day. I’ll miss television this weekend.
