Where Have I Been?

Well hello there everyone! I know it’s been a day and an age since I last posted, but I do promise, I am not lying when I say that I have been very very busy!!!!

For part of my time away, I was actually in London. I only went for two days, but it only took me two minutes to realise that it is somewhere that I would never ever want to live. Don’t get me wrong, the actually City itself is lovely and I live in a city already, so I think I am probably a city person, but I just cannot stand the rudeness of tube goers. I get that we are all trying to get to the same place, at the same time and that there are many of us doing this all at once, but I am literally and physically covered in bruises for the amount of times I was push or banged into! I’m just not cut out for the tub lifetstyle, it will never be for me. I’m not for the tube etiquette, the tube heat or just the bloody tube in general. Give me a good old fashion bus anyday! I’m basically just not cut out to be a Londoner ( a full time one anyway), so to anyone who is, I raise my hat to you! You wouldn’t want me anyway, I’m too nice!

But while I was in London, I took a lovely River Boat Cruise, which made me realise, I like being on the water. Now, don’t expect me to be telling you anytime soon that I have given up my current abode for a canal barge ala Rosie and Jim. But I would love to travel to work by boat everyday, it’s rather nice (expect for the tipping but we didn’t have any of that).

I also, and rather excitingly, went to see The Lion King and it was amazing (say it in the style of Craig off of Strictly to get the full effect). I’ve never been to see a West End show before and it was so good. I mean, full props to all the people backstage, cause that thing ran as smooth as a babies bum (vulgar I know, I apologies!). I obviously couldn’t see the people backstage, but I couldn’t imagine how many people were there or running the show. But everything, from the sets, too the actors, too the musicians, they were all fantastic. I loved how they didn’t just stick to the stage either and how they came down the aisles, especially the massive *spoiler alert* elephant at the beginning (it’s really not a spoiler because if you haven’t seen the Lion King by now in your life, then you must live under a rock FACT!).

I have been a bit of a theatre lovey lately, because I also went to see in my hometown (I say town, I live in a city, that only really just qualifies as a city!) an armature dramatic products of Disney’s Beauty and The Beast. I just love the film of Beauty and the Beast, especially the songs and the candlestick Lumiere (I think that’s how you spell it) and it was amazing too. Just as good as anything you’d see in the West End and really well put together and performed. It ran smoothly too, even when my friend Helen nearly took out Belle at the beginning when she was walking down the aisle. To be fair to Helen, we weren’t expecting anyone to walk down the aisle, so it did come as a bit of a surprise, but luckily Helen got herself sorted just in time to let Belle past. It could have been a lot worse!

I’ve also been enjoying the Tennis, although I’ve realised that I do not know half of the tennis players that are currently playing. Non of my old favourites or the ones that I know seem to be playing in it anymore and theres no Andy Roddick 😦 I shall have to watch Wimbledon carefully and latch myself on to some new players to follow. But I’ll be cheering on Murray, I’m currently watching his first match!

That’s all for now, but I promise, cross my heart and metaphorically hope to die.


Thought Of The Day: Not a whole lot really!
Nails Of The Day: A duo of OPI “Did it On Em” and Sally Hansen “Loves Me Not”, with some Wimbledon themed nail art.

Wimbledon Finale!!!

I was going to add a nice little image to the top of this post, like I have with my other posts, but due to a sport injury on my left arm, it hurts to much to be fancy with photoshop. Well, I say sport injury, but unless you count extreme shopping a sport, then you might want to score out the sport part of the injury. I banged right into one of the columns in the middle of New Look yesterday! It hurt!

I got some lovely things yesterday on my shopping trip with Helen. I wanted to post some pictures, BUT New Look Online doesn’t have the dress I bought and I don’t think Internacionale has an online shop. I got two tops and some boots in there. I think I’ll take a picture of the dress and post it, as it’s beyond wicked!

Anywhoo, back to the actual title of the post. I can’t believe the Wimbledon final is here already. I think it’s going to be a really great one this year. I’ll be cheering on both players, as I think they are both really great at Tennis, and as much as I would love Andy Murray to win, if Federer did, I wouldn’t be upset either. I just hope that it doesn’t go on for too long cause sometimes, if there pretty even match, it can get relentless.

I think I should re title this post as hardly any of it is about Wimbledon lol.

Song Of The Day: No song today! Not really had music on yet!
Nail Varnish Of The Day: Nothing either! But my new Bundle Monster stamping plates arrived on Friday so I will experiment this afternoon!

The Woes of HR!

I have attempted today to resubmit my work self payment claims, because our online HR system is so mind numbingly stupid. I have been trying to get this done since January and everytime I do it, something seems to go wrong! I am hoping this is the final time that I have to do this, as it is a nice sum of extra work money and I do have a purpose for it.

Managed to watch a good bit of the tennis today! I am so pleased that Andy Murray got through to the final! I can actually enjoy it this year. I don’t think I actually watched it last year, but I am not going to miss a Murray Vs Federer final. While I will be behind our Brit 100%, I will also be supporting Federer because I think it would be nice if he won another one. But then again, he’s won so many, it would be good for him to let someone else win for a change!

Song Of The Day: Demi Lovato – “Your My Only Shorty” (I hate the title of the song, but by God is it catchy lol!).
Nail Varnish Of The Day: Same as yesterday!

Edible Hats


Is there such a thing as an edible hat! Because having told my sister that if Andy Murray didn’t make it through to week 2 of Wimbledon, I would eat my own hat, I have now been proved disastrously wrong! Granted, I am more often proved wrong than right (I said that both Avatar and Superman were going to be a whole load of hype, I now love Avatar and own Superman on DVD). However, I still remain faithful to my assumption that Twilight will be a whole load of crap, even though I have never watched it! I just know lol!

I defiantly don’t have anything against Andy Murray, I just have other players that I prefer, although they are now out. Andy is currently playing and my live score BBC website link says it is one set all against Ferrer (Roche lol! If he and Federer ever play it is going to be a nightmare of names lol!).

I would like to say something about my work, but I am not going to run my mouth off about it on my blog! I am a bit annoyed but I am only thankful that come September, I don’t have to do it anymore and I am really not going to let it bother me. It’s water off annoying ducks back!

Anyway, it is my day off tomorrow and I already know that I have to get a few layouts finished. as well as my Style Stealers article for Portrait Magazine. So I’ll be busy.


Song Of The Day: Demi Lovato – “Give Your Heart A Break” (just discovered her album it’s fab!)
