Sorry for my terrible blogging, this last week has been a little hectic to say the least.
Last weekend we visited some of Ash’s friends and had a nerdy weekend away in the midlands.
We ate chinese take away and played Lord of the Rings Risk into the early hours of the morning and generally had lots of fun.
We have also been rearranging our flat as we’ve just bought a new desk for the grand price of 99p! We decided there wasn’t enough room for the both of us on one desk and that, even though it would be a squeeze, we could just about fit another desk in. Ash found a desk on ebay which is very similar to the desk we already have, just without the bookcase attached to the end. He bid on it and ended up being the only bidder! Lucky us!
We picked it up yesterday and tried to figure out how to fit it in. We’ve finally settled on moving our desks in front of the window and next to our bed. This makes that side of the room very cramped, but the side with a tv is now lovely and spacious, perfect for playing my kinect! 😀
We haven’t quite finished setting everything up (we have far too much stuff accumulated for such a small flat! It’s ridiculous), but when we have it’s should be small but far easier for us both to get on with our own things. Finally I’ll have lots of room to sew!
I’ve also been on a few nights out, one with work, another with my sister with lots of movember madness and a quiet drunken pub night with Ash. All we’re very fun and left me feeling a little worse for ware the next day.
I do have lots of fun posts planned for future, including a make-up tutorial, some tips for your CV and many more helpful things! I just need to get round to writing them…
Until next time!
This weekend I ended up staying over at my boyfriends bosses house. He was having a ‘pyjama’ party with lots of games and alcohol and invited us both. (Quite a big thing for Ashley as not many people are usually invited over to his bosses house) The job seems to be going well for him at the moment and he’s improving a lot. He thinks he might have made nearly £300 last week (pretty big thing with it all being commission based), hopefully he can keep up this good streak and doesn’t get many cancellations. I have my fingers crossed that he can work his way up to management soon.
The night was really fun, I had lots of drunken girly chats and we played lots of fun games and became very tiddly. In the morning we woke up and all watched team america, a film that never fails to make me laugh. Then Ash and I wondered off to the delights of Brick lane for some lunch. We had some lovely curries and a nice little chat to the friendly people on the table next to us. Then we went to the nearby market hall, for ‘research’. They had some lovely stalls, but as I was there for research I didn’t allow myself to buy anything. I spotted some little earrings in a bargain bin that were just adorable! I really wanted them but just couldn’t justify buying them despite them being reduced and really not expensive at all. Luckily Ash noticed how much I wanted them and decided to buy them for me. I was so happy! Sure they didn’t cost much, but just the fact they were a present from him has made me really happy.
The rest of the day was spent giggling, visiting his parents and giggling some more. We haven’t had a giggle like that in ages and it was really nice to finally spend some time together (without being stressed out or ill).
Oh and I of course sent some flowers over for my mother on Mothers day. A big bouquet for being amazing and always supporting my sister and I when ever we’ve needed it. She’s really been a rock in this last week and I hope she realises how much I appreciate her. She definitely appreciated the flowers and claimed to have teared up a bit when she received them.
Until next time!
