Monday, January 31, 2005
It's been a lovely weekend, I have bruises in places i didn't know could get bruised!

Get your minds outa the gutter! It's not what you think, honestly it's not!!!!

i'll skip fridays catch up cos I can't remember what i did!

Saturday....Shopping with hubby treated ourselves to nice things.

Saturday night nice relaxing night, preparing for sunday.

Sunday....My day i'll playback forever!

We drove the long drive to the mountains, making sure we had everything we might need incase we broke down, we set off with A D and their kids.

Hubby kept saying, doesn't look like theres any snow, looks like it all went in the rain last night. And then we saw it a patch, and then high on the hill another and the trees and all of a sudden we turned a corner and it was white, it was piled up high either side of the road.

I was so excited i nearly cried. I was jumping up and down in my seat. Yeah ok that sounds kind of sad, but this is a girl who hasn't seen serious snowfall since the 70'sand i was a liccle girly then. The snow was easily 2 foot deep plus *seriously hard walking through it!*

Once there we had a fabulous lunch in a hotel, vey very yummy and filling. And then drove round the mountain to the slopes.

The ski lifts were closed so we made do with sledging! Though since i can't ski i don't find that a problem! I'm gonna get lessons though.

I had, I have to say the most amazing day. I became a child again. We hurled snowballs, hurtled down the slopes as high as we dared, each run it getting slippier and faster and a little longer because it was getting so fast we couldnt even sit before we started sliding! A few mishaps, princess got tangled in net fence, hubby into a big block of snow.

Of course i don't do anything by halves. I spent most the time on my back, having lost grip of my sled, hurtling down head first at speed, in the delicate shape of a starfish screaming as i went. The screams turned to fits of uncontrollable laughter as i practically took out some bystanders! The run in the end got so fast it was getting difficult to stop! We were ending up on the patio bit, well it would be if it wasn't covered in snow of a lodge!

Princess showed absolutely no fear as she began to climb right to the top of the skislope. She wanted to go the whole way! We managed to talk her out of it, it was quite a climb with no lift working. She's a bit small this year maybe next!

My legs are black and blue, it took almost an hour to get feeling back in my bum on the journey home, as i got changed in the car snowballs fell out the bottoms of my trousers!

I came home very tired, still a bit cold, wet but with a very very big smile on my face.

Sunday 30th January will be imprinted forever in my memory box with my pics and film files taken as the most fabulous fun day. The day i became a child again if only for a few hours.




Scarlets first day in her new job today

Good luck babe xxxxxxxxxxxx


Today is monday......i've been out shopping all day treated myself to some lush new gymwear
oh and i've been to the gym.....20kms again folks! I'll be back in shape in no time.

Friday, January 28, 2005
A mad and crazy day yesterday. I started off bright and early with my physio assessment. I was crapping myself as i'm not exactly doing these exercises every day........

But I am fab...he was well pleased with me for some reason and says my mobility has improved! I was dying after i finished after being contorted. It really wears me out. Anyway he tells me he's decided to try another treatment with me....Accupuncture. Yes that's right i'm gonna get stabbed hundreds of times by tiny needles. Shitting myself? YES. Starts next friday so i'll give you a full commentry on my patheticness then. Incidently any of you had it before?

Thursdays are always a mad dash for me, but this one was a bit more mellow i spent a while chatting to minnow and scarlet before i had to go and get princess from school and get her to her swimming lesson. She has come on in leaps and bounds. I am so impressed. The teachers there are awesome. So on the way home i stop by the reebok shop.....new trackies needed, treat myself and get home.

Have a crazy idea. Phoned W and said " Is B home? Fancy fecking off to the gym?" Of course she said yes, so off we went. I felt so bad about missing a day. I'm really enjoying being back there.

20 kms later. Yes thats right 20kms later I staggered through my front door dead on my feet, but feeling pretty good despite the increasing difficulty i had standing up! A nice suprise Hubby decided to cook. He obviously was really pissed off with waiting for me to come back and feed them both. Whilst i was in the shower he was supposed to be cleaning the kitchen. only he didn't well he did a bit. He didn't even turn the dishwasher on.

What the hell is it with men? Why do they not include cleaning the cooker and wiping down the worktops as part of cleaning the kitchen. Their definition of cleaning is all to cock.

Anyway i'd better get my arse in gear.....i'm off to the gym for more punishment.

Went out last night. Nowt particually special, just a nice dinner with friends, wine beer and good company. Nice evening actually.

Princess has gone with hubby for her catch up swimming lesson, cos she missed one when she had chicken pox. I'm curently sat here in my dressing gown and slippers, i'm gonna go get showered in a mo i just thought i'd pop in and say hi while i had one!

Actually i'm off out with W. We're going to beautify ourselves, well actually we're going to pay someone else to do it! I'm having my eyebrows restored to normal, they needed redoing a couple of weeks ago really, and i'm going for a pedicure. I've never had a pedicure. I'm slighty nervous i think.

But it really needs doing. All that time wearing flip flops has wrecked my feet, they are hard and getting sore now. Even though i pumice them at home myself. So i'm off to get lovely feet.

Right better go

It hurts
It hurts
It fecking hurts

For the first time yesterday, since the op, i went to the gym. (Bare in mind i had the op in October.) So i hit the gym.

1 1/2 hours later. My legs are jelly like and i've had enough. I've got a serious sweat on and i feel elated i lasted that long!

Went home and had a shower...dressed like a proper girl for a change! Meaning that i wasn't in jeans or trousers. Beige cord skirt, knee high stilletto boots and a black cashmere sweater. I even left my hair to dry naturally, which means girly curls! I think hubby had a shock when he saw me it's been a while since i dressed girly, well cept for crimbo in my posh frock.

Anyway i was getting dressed up for a reason. I had a hospital appt. George. Got a telling off put on weight over crimbo, 2 1/2 kilo, but he says some of that is atributed to the work out! Gotta stay on that treadmill eating the stuff i'm told anyway and hopefully i'll be normal again by the summer.

Thursdays are always a busy day for me, Princess has swimming, straight after school. She's come on in leaps and bounds, her techinique is getting there. They are taught very strictly, very precisely, the teachers are scary but they get results. Her teacher was in the olympic team for synchro, and has been an olympic coach too. She is one scary lady if you upset her or put a leg wrong.

Went looking for a new bed after swimming. Hubby and I have decided to get a new one. We saw one in a window the other day and decided to chck it out for real. I fell in love with it. Wraught iron, solid, incredibly heavy, and white big cushions attatched to the beadstead, sleigh bed in iron with rolled solid wood top. very very lush.

Not having it. Works out in uk pounds to be over £1500 without the mattress. I shall look again. But it was nice and we both liked it which makes a change!

Anyway after a speedy dinner at maccy d's we popped home and within 15 mins i wsa picked up by W to go to bingo. Yep Bingo. Well its a night out. It was fun actually. I didn't win anything but got very close a few times just waiting on one number.

By the end of the night i had a numb arse, i could feel bruising starting on my butt cheeks from the exercise bike! Got home popped online had nice chat with friends.

Had 5 hours kip and got up well tried to. Slow deliberate movements. My tummy is killing me, those 100 sit ups were evil. I've done my best, got the housework done, i've even been to the deepest darkest depths of princess's bedroom and given it a sort out, and now i'm gonna rest.

if it sit still and just type i'm not too bad. My legs feel like i've been on a horse for a week!

i'll just sit quiet.

I've been a bit down again, have you noticed? So's Scarlet. Maybe its the weather. It's been fecking awful here, torrential rain, massive thunder and lightning storms, plus I didn't leave the house all last week due to princess's encounter with chicken pox.

But I've made a decision. I'm in danger of fecking up my resolution. So tomorrow I begin, again.

First thing tomorrow, well not first thing cos thats fecking early here! At 8am I have a date. With the gym. I haven't been for ages. Its time to get my trackies on my nice white trainers wrestle with a sports bra and get my ever increasing arse back to the gym.

I'm not going alone. W is coming with me. Support and encouragement and all that. It's not quite so intimidating as going on your own. I used to go all the time. Since we've been here i've slacked off big time. Mainly because it was too hot and i was about ready to pass out by the time i walked there let alone do anything!

Yesterday i went for a lovely walk. Princess's school had a walk in aid of the Tsunami. It was lovely. We walked down by the beach. It was decidedly yucky out it was threatening to bucket down and the sea was really rough. Still we did it and it was lovely all the kids holding hands excited to be doing their bit.

We've been having a bit of a dvd fest here lately, well thats not unusual cos the tv choice here is enough to make you slit your wrists! But in particular the last week or so we have been having a Dark Angel fest. Or rather hubby has sat drooling at max dressed from head to foot in leather kicking ass. Might make that my goal for the next 6 months......to change into her! Gotta slim that ass of mine down first though right now it'd look pretty scary in a pair of leathers!

We have had a little exciting news.

News 1) Princess won a competition on the local tv station kids show. We have no clue what it is......but its bloody exciting. I'll let you know when we know. I can't remember what the prize was! We entered loads over chistmas and the new year!

News 2) My precious parents have booked their tickets.......they're coming....at last! I haven't seen them for 5 months now. It'll be 7 by the time they are here. I'm so excited to show them my new home. They've never been so far from the uk before!

News 3) Inlaws have booked to come back in september again. Yeah i know, whats the good news about that? The good news is that they're not staying here! They're staying in a hotel!

and of course some very wonderful news.....

Scarlet. Her new job. Well deserved. Well needed. I'm so sure she will thrive in her new position.

She was a little down to say the least last night, and drunk. Hense my post last night which didn't really say a lot but meant a lot in the words.

I don't know if she remembers all we said. If you do babe, I meant it all of it. It's all true.

Do you ever wish when you looked in a mirror you'd see you as others see you? Not as you see yourself?

I do. All the time.

Maybe that's my insecurities. I'm pretty insecure i guess with everything. Not quite paranoid! But i'm not as self assured in real life as i would like to be.

Deeply rooted i feel in my school days as i was bullied, both physically and verbally. But in those days there wasn't the support, in those days you kept your mouth shut and suffered in silence lest it get worse.

I've coped, I got through school. I never looked back. Friends reunited? feck off. I don't give a feck about any of you, and you certainly never gave a feck about skinny little no tits me unless it was to belittle me, humiliate me, or hurt me.

I've done well. I'm happily married for nearly 11 years, been in that loving relationship for 14, i have a fabulous daughter, and a pretty nice lifestyle. You thought i was worthless. Well i've got news for you, you wankers........................ I'M NOT.

Oh feck i've gone off on a little one again........must be the weather i'm blaming it on the weather.
I hope the fecking sun comes out tomorrow i'm planning a good day.
Gym, george to give me a bollocking on my food managment programme no doubt, and off out on the tiles in the evening with W and some girls she knos who i don't yet.

I'm smiling......really i am, ok its a grimace


posted by Lou Lou @ 9:08:00 pm  
well, well, well..............
well, i did it.
handed in my notice today and start my new job in a couple of weeks.
this is a big thing for me to leave somthing, no matter how crappy.
there is always that little voice that pops in and says stick with it, you can make it better when i full well , i can't.
i guess its my lack of confidence saying you are crap, stick with what you know.
but tough shit for better or worse i have actually ignored that voice and jumped.

my day started pretty shite, actually but did get better has the day has progressed.

had a very drunken conversation with lou lou last night , i was feeeling very down in the dumps about everything and nothing.( bless her she did make me feel better, as she always does.)

well i have put a photo of myself on messenger, and she was saying ohh its a lovely one. (course she would say that cause if she did'nt, i would kick her in the ass. lol).
it really isn't, by the way. only one i could put on.
soooooo, i don't know how we got to it but we were gonna post my messenger picture and some ones of us together pissed and singing karoke.
i was being yeah fuck it lets do it, in my drunken bravado.
only to wake up this morning and go noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
fuck shit i better mail her before she does it, and in my haste i managed to knock the web cam nicely in my cuppa, then all over the fucking key board in my attempt to retrieve it.
thank the lord has dried out nicely and is working again.

so today was the day i went into my new job for a few hours just to see how the office runs and get to grips with the work load.
okay so i am running around trying to make breakfast for my son, and trying to make myself look intelligent.
when he is still in his pit listening to chris moyles. aggggggggggrrrrrrrrrr.
for the love of god and all that is holy in the world GET UP.
after lots of god its not fair, you're soooooooooo tight.
now i used say that when i was a kid, and it really made me laugh to hear it again.
still chuckling now.
so i get into new office things looking ok, they are buying the intelligent look, things are going smoothly until i sat at my desk to phone someone, and yes i broke the phone.
only been there an hour. ff;'s
they did see the funny side, and they still want more.
if there was an olympic event for clumsey twats, baby i would win gold everytime for england.

hanging on in there.

The Chronicles Of Life And Death

You come in cold,

You're covered in blood.
They're all so happy you've arrived.
The doctor cuts your chord.
He hands you to your mom.
She sets you free into this life.
And where do you go with no destination, no maps to guide you.
Wouldn't you know that it doesn't matter, we all end up the same.

These are the chronicles of life and death and everything between.
These are the stories of our lives, as fictional as they may seem.
You come in this world, and you go out just the same.
Today could be the best day of your life.

And you'll find out that in this world,
We're all just rats caught in a race.
But take your time, there's no need to rush
You don't have to live that way.
Before you go, you've got some questions.
That you want answered.
But now you’re old, cold, covered in blood,
right back to where you started from

These are the chronicles of life and death and everything between.
These are the stories of our lives, as fictional as they may seem.
You come in this world, and you go out just the same.
Today could be the worst day of your life.
Of your life, it's your life.

But these are the chronicles of life and death and everything between.
These are the stories of our lives, as fictional as they may seem.
You come in this world, and you go out just the same.
Today could be the best day of,
Today could be the worst day of,
Today could be the last day of your life.
It's your life, your life.

By Good Charlotte

Dearest Scarlet,

I know you're down i know where you are right now, i'm there too only thousands of fecking miles away.

MY Message is

Life is what you make it.

Don't sit back wondering

Make it yours

Make everyday the best you can have

Trust in yourself

Only you can make it good

The story so far..............................
Monday, January 17, 2005
Well folks long time, no speaky.

I have been poorly in my defence.
i have managed to fuck my knees up, and i am now on my second week of being off work with it now.
i have really lost the will to live, that i think is due to my mother who has jumped on the chance of spending some time together. ( bless her)
having conversations with her is not just painful but fucking hard work.
such as this one for instance.
took her to the local opticians, where her glasses cost a fortune my father reckons she would have got a better deal at specksavers.
so in we went to pick them up and she says " ohhh i don't care what your father says about kwik - kit, they couldn't have done abetter job than you guys"
yes mum seeing how they change peoples tyres, you crazy biatch.
so then i thought okay i hate going to work because my manager is a complete nasty fucker and makes me run the show on min wage, or stay at home and spend time with mother.
time for drastic action.........................

So i placed one great big firework up one's arse.
packed in my shitty little mind numbing job. (well about too)
I have taken another boring job in an office, but they are gonna pay me loads more money and hours to suit, i am a little worried that i will become very bored very quickly but, has someone pointed out that, once your little eccentric ass gets in there who knows.

so now just gotta get some money and move somewhere, anywhere or at least make up my mind where i want to move too. then do it
secondly i have to get a man.
got to be a nice man.
ohh scratch that any man who will service me goooooooood.
1 out of 3 ain't bad for january.

At last she is crusty! Princess has gone all crusty YAY Which means she could go back to school today! Which means I have a little me time!

Not that i've minded staying home all week looking after her because i haven't we've had some great quality time, but i hadn't left the house all week save to put the rubbish out! I must admit I was starting to go a bit stir crazy!

We had some friends over last night for dinner, which was nice, Princess was officially crusty yesterday so they had the all clear to come over. They'd all had chicken pox though, excepting the baby.

The baby. 8 weeks old today, cuddly, cute, baby smelling.

What was written here has been removed. It was self indulgent shite. I was feeling down in the dumps. I apologuise to any of you who actually bothered to read the crap.

I wants don't get i guess. i'll cope.

Just a quicky.........cos hubby needs me to get offline.

I've had some great news! Just for a change!

I''ve been into the city this morning to see my dermatologist re my scar. For a review on my treatment.

It's much improved, i have to continue for another 4 weeks using Dermovate Steriod Ointment on it and then it'll be as good as it'll be. I'm only to go back if i'm dissatisfied with the results. She feels I won't be I've made such great progress already. I'm so relieved. Today's appointmet was to evalute the next course of tretment, i was looking at injections into the scar or laser treament.


*for those of you who are new or just don't know, I had a lumpectomy in October on my right breast, and the scar was very unsightly keliod*

The whole area is much improved the scar tissue is softer and although there is still an amount of it under the skin and still a lump it's not as hard or big as it was. Also i'm not getting so much pain or discomfort now.

Yay Yay YAY

I'm gonna have a drink toight to celebrate, in the mean time wheres that chocolate?......

..::lost in music::..
Thursday, January 13, 2005
Am i a 15 year old stuck in a 31 year old's body? Filled with teenage angst and tragedy, a complete drama queen? Or am i a 31 year old woman who likes weird music?

Well maybe you'd think that if you looked at my cd collection, but then if you looked a little deeper, you'd notice my tastes are way more sophisticated than you would think. But still i love any music with a passion. Like reading i lose myself and lose who i am. Certain songs cast me back to that small skinny 15 year old girl waiting for my life to start, some send me to heartbreak, and some to the deep deep love i share with my hubby and pure happiness, Some just throw me back to the 80's, well ok a lot of them do! some make me cry, some make me jump around like a twat.

I think one of my favourite things to do when i'm home alone is kick back, stick the stereo on full turn up the bass and dance about like no one is watching, well they're not are they? But the sad thing is i do this when i'm out too....dance like no one is watching! Once i've had a few drinks there i am on the dance floor shaking my bootie for all its worth.

Music plays a very important part in my life, it strongly influences my moods, and vice versa my moods dictate what i have on.

Hubby doesn't really understand my love for music, or what i call music! All i know is i love it with a passion, and princess is turning into a mini me! He'll come home and turn it down! git. I have a shit memory, but music i can tell you the year, and how old i was. weird i know but thats me weird all over!

So how does it make you feel? What song is special to you and why? What lifts you up, what crashes you down?

Jumping about like a twat to the new good charlotte, chronicles of life and death

Wednesday, January 12, 2005
Well i was a happy girl for a bit yesterday, my dvds arrived from amazon. YAY. I am on the final stretch of completing my Adam Sandler collection! Decided to get a few of his older ones, ones i love. Infact there isn't a film he's done i don't like or laugh uncontrollably at. plus theres just something about the bloke. I can't explain the attraction i have for him i really can't God only knows he's not my normal type!

So I spent a while playing coaster, and a while watching an old favourite happy Madison, and then last night Bulletproof. Not his usual type of film the later, but nonetheless worth wathcing. A pricless quote from daymon wyans....."I can taste my nots already" had us rolling about. It takes a lot to make my hubby laugh like that! Still the guy is a comic genius, Adam Sandler that is.

Just as well really cos i had a shite night. Princess had me up 5 times in the night, either wanting more camomile applied or just cos she wanted me. Thankfully she slept in this morning, which means i did too! In fact i'm not even dressed yet, its gone 11am and i have had breakfast ad a little tidy up but done nowt else! I have to do the ironing some stage today cos i didn't bother my arse to do it yesterday afternoon in the end!

Oh well, feck all esle to say

have a great day, from the house of lurgy

Tuesday, January 11, 2005
The cross on the door seems to be working, and obviously there is one on the phone too, cos that hasn't rung! The day was quiet, i spent it watching dvds, cooking a delicious roast and spending quality time with my sweet child.

She's not taking this chicken pox thing well, you would think she has the plague the way she is carrying on! Don't touch me, i don't want to touch my toys they might catch it, don't want to do anything i will give germs to it. I have got germs. I'm itchy. don't put that on me, its cold. don't touch me i got germies.

Well the epic struggle to apply calamine lotion is not getting any easier. She has some majorly big yucky pox spots ans the poor love must be so sore, and yet she is freeking everytime i try to help her by applying calamine. Sadly its the only treatment for it. What the hell else am i supposed to do?

She's cheerful enough in herself as long as the bottle of calamine isn't nearby. We've read a lot of the faraway tree this morning, watched lizzie maguire the movie and now shes watching kids tv. which gives me a little me time. She wouldn't go to bed last night, she got up in the night and then got up early. poor little love just doesn't know what to do with herself.

I have asked that her teacher send some work home for her with a friend so she doesn't miss much. She's missing her swimming lessons this week, karate, youth club and yesterday she missed her first ever brownies. she was gutted. i slipped into the kitchen with my mobile to ring the brown owl and explain the situation so as not to upset her further. She was so looking forward to it.

I was hoping maybe she would doze a bit but no, shes far too interested in daytime tv, some diy thing is on, but coming from a child who loves alan titchmarsh that isn't so unusual! she really does you know.....goes nuts for groudforce says its rubbish now he has left it! bless.

well i'm gonna chill for a bit and play coaster and then begin the massive pile of ironing this afternoon....shes whinging now the calamine isnt working......oh god has anyone got a tranquiliser dart so i can put this stuff on her easily?

any suggestions?

It's gonna be a quiet week. A very quiet week. Just for a change!

Princess has chicken pox. Finally, at last after years of trying to get her to catch it she has it without even trying!

Two small bite like dots appeared on her tummy last night, many more have gathered now and by tomorrow i suspect we will be dot to dotting on her! Poor little love has been most weary today spending all day snuggled up on the sofa. Her appetite has been low. And shes had a wee snooze. Tonight after being in be about an hour or so she started screaming. For no apparent reason. She sometimes does this when she goes to bed really late and is overtired. She has a temperature so I guess that explains it. She really isn't a happy chick.

So we go from a few days respite from being the house of lurgy back to being once more the house of lurgy....i will be chalking a cross on the front door tomorrow to warn everyone they enter at their own peril!

I had so many plans for this week too! Damn! I guess that means I can't go to the gym tomorrow now! Gutted! But that also means i can't go on my course all week, and i can't go and get my eyebrows done, or hit the sales.

Princess is so much more important than all that.

I of course will be keeping her off school. I'll ring the doctors tomorrow to see if i can get her seen if she worsens. She will be absolutely gutted tomorrow. She was starting Brownies tomorrow afternoon for the first time. She's so been looking forward to it to say the least. She's been driving me mad since it was confirmed she finally had a place after being on the waiting list for months. I just hope she forgets its tomorrow. Something tells me she won't and we'll have tears.

Well i've not much else to say about the weekend, we spent it quietly, so nothing exciting to say! Just watched lots of dvds. Oh and we took it in turns to play coaster! Princess is pretty good at it already!

Well just a short one for today, hopefully Scarlet will be posting again this week, now shes back, and feeling a bit better. God only knows about that lazy git milky!

Laters all

Friday, January 07, 2005
I've been a bit remiss in posting lately, things had gotten on top of me, all the shit from last year had turned into this big black cloud and was raining on me constantly. But a few days ago I sat and made my new years resolution, i've only made one this year, i'm determined to keep it. I think I might even stand a good chance of keeping it! for a change i chose something practical!

I am gonna live 2005 to the max. I've got to. Life is so much more important to me now. It's not that it wasn't before i just hadn't realised how precious it was.

With the big move, and the lump and everything plus my other health problems things had just started to get a bit much for me, which isn't a great sign! Spending a lot of time on my own since i moved here wasn't helping. I was starting to crawl back inside myself where it's safe and nothing can hurt me. Not a great thing to do when I am supposed to be strong and brave and beating it all.

So i've not been myself lately really. I don't really know if any of you even noticed, those of you who know me really well did. They noticed before I did myself!

Well I've snapped out of it! I'm gonna be ok, no feck that I am ok. I am alive. The health problems i have will probably always be with me. I have to accept it and get on, and not be so fecking angry about it and accept there is no treatment, no firm diagnosis and that whereas it won't kill me it makes life uncomfortable at times. Yes certain things i took for granted in the past aren't so easy now, but i'll get by. There are so many worse off than I am.

So I've started 2005 with a bang! I plan to continue. No more sitting back on the sidelines, no more over analysing, no more worrying abut the little things in life. This is life baby and i for once am gonna live it.

Right, thats enough of that shit.

Quiet days this week for me. hubby back working now he's well again, Princess returned to school on Tuesday. So i've been home alone. What is a girl to do? I'll tell you, after moderate housework, put the kettle on, kick back, relax, turn on the pc, and play rct3. Of course I have been doing other things. Such as indulging in retail therapy online.......having cuppas with W, oh and i've been to do my course as well. I've decided to scrap the language one for a bit. The tutor was doing my head in to say the least.....silly cow.

Weekend plans? Well for once i don't have any. If the wind is up we may venture down to the beach. If the big snow dump comes this weekend as promised i might take myself off ski ing. Which is good for a laugh if anything since i have never been on a pair of skis in my life! I'm rather looking forward to it. We along with W and B are plannig to hire a chalet up the mountains over the next few weeks, which should be fun. The kids will love it. They actually get a decent amount of snow here, not like the paltry amount in the uk. So exciting!

Of course after about 15 minutes i'll be whinging that my hands and feet have gone dead....and that i'm cold but i'm not gonna let little things lie that bother me. I have my hand warmers for my pockets, my thermals, a small hip flask to fill with brandy......i'll be fine!

So i'm off now to check the email, reply to some if i have any....and make another cuppa, put rct3 on and enjoy the solitude! well enjoy not being nagged for being on the pc all fecking morning!!!!

So hoping each and every one of you are fit and well happy and content i'll leave you,
renewed in spirit

I've been out tonight.......and no just for a change a drop of alcohol has not passed my lips!

I've been out with the girls to the cinema! We finally got Bridget Jones 2!!! I've been patiently waiting for it to arrive for months, well years.

It was fecking brilliant. I'd go as far as to say maybe even better than the first, which i watch at least once a month.

A good sign with a good film is that i laugh in the first 5 mins. And boy did i and i never stopped. There were of course the gut wrenching moments, i sat there completely spellbound.

Of course it goes without saying the talent on off to letch at! The most darling Colin Firth everyones favourite mr darcy! And of course the delicious Hugh Grant. Yummmy he's getting so much better with age. I certainly wouldn't be throwing him out of bed! My facination with the hughmiester began when he finally cut that floopy shite hair of his for about a boy........my lust for him had grown since then. Love actually i think he is perfect as the prime minister. now if tosser blair looked like him, id vote for him! oh maybe not hes a tosser so even looking like hugh can't save him!

well i've come home, i could watch it all over again, so i finished the ironing instead! sad i know.

an interesting hair day today.......i french plaited it for the first time in forever, well to go out of the house anyway! I did it wet. I took it out tonight and in princesses words "wow mummy you are hermione" she is obsessed with having what she calls hermione hair! prolly cos she looks like a smaller version of her! (you know the girl from harry potter) it is incredibly crimpy! it looks rather pretty actually so i'm told by the girls. Still i think i'll keep it my normal dead pan straight or the days off when i leave it natural which means waves with a mind of their own!

my sweet mate dynagirl has been on the wine! shes had a sad time lately. thing shave come to an end for her. but hopefully 2005 will bring her what she needs in life.

scarlet is not well, just in case you've been wondering where the feck she is. actually she went away for christmas... and posting was not an option!
anyway shes back and i spoke to her earlier......she'll be back on form soon, hopefully feeling betterer.

right since this was a quicky i'm off.

Monday, January 03, 2005
After recovering from my lonesome drunken night of New Years Eve, we spent the day doing sweet feck all, in fact, we never even got dressed! Hubby wasn't too bad in the morning but by lunchtime he was sleeping again! I woke him at 6pm, which wasn't easy. So Princess and I spent the whole afternoon playing rollercoaster tycoon 3. I am hopelessly addicted!

Sadly not even here is immune to the evil that is the James Bond movie! I thought maybe, just maybe I would be away from it all here! But no. So there was nothing else for me to do but play coaster for the evening!

The 2nd, brought a much improved hubby. The antibiotics doing their job and he was up and about. Which was a good thing since our much anticipated night out was that night! We spent the day hubby resting, me playing coaster and princess playnig at her mates house. I managed to fall flat on my face whilst nipping out to the car in my slippers! I limped in sore, scraped and stinging hoping it wouldn't out a damper on the night, my foot was fecking hurting! Later on in the afternoon after a rest we did some Manic packing we dropped princess at my friends house where she was staying for the nigh and we drove off to the hotel.

C and D were just coming out the lift as we checked into our 4 star hotel! We took our bags to our room, an end room, with a massive balcony, it was the usual front one, which went right round the side It was as big as our room! The room was quite nice, not the best i have ever been in but a nice big bouncy bed took centre stage! The views stunning. Mountains one side and the fabulous blue sea the other!

We went back down to the lobby and met C and D in the bar while we waited for K and S to arrive. We supped very expensive cappachino and hot chocolate till they finally turned up! We realised the hotel was full of fecking saga tourists ffs. Got peed off waiting for S and K In fact so i left slightly before they did so i could start getting ready.

Whilst I was in the shower, there was a knock on the door, hubby was bringing S to see our room and balcony, they had been given the room next door but were moving due to there being twin beds in the room! So i get back into the shower. So i'm all clean and dripping and find the balcony door wide open and our room door open, i call hubby a few times no answer so i close both, and set about toweling my hair. The picture is me in small towel, which i am about to drop so i can start getting dressed. And then the bloody balcony door opens, I squeal, run to the bathroom, slip on the bathroom floor, scream, recover myself and lock the door. Hubby and S are pissing themselves laughing at me!

Anyway I finally get sorted, realise i've left my fecking mascara behind, the one thing i can't do without! Try and make do, D comes to my rescue with hers, Thank God, a girl just cannot do without massy! I decided to go casual for the night, hipster jeans, black cashmere rollneck and very pointy high stiletto black boots. Hair down, dead straight.

So we all meet in the bar, get a taxi to pizza hut for a bite to eat, they seat us at a table which i have to move to sit down and then move back so i am trapped in the bloody chair!!!! 5 minutes later they move us to another thank god i was getting really clostrophobic! We ate between us 2 pitchers of beer, 8 slices of garlic bread, 1 dish of chicken dippers, i dish of chicken wings and 3 extra large pizza! Gutty buggers!

So we bimble off to the local Irish bar, the same one as last time, we get tanked up. I manage to skillfully avoid once more singing karaoke,. C is pulled into a game involving some girl licking his chest...... some girl whos birthday it was also had to tongue an old guy, and a bloke had to grab a load of arses. There were quite a few older people in there, which is unusual, all tourists of course! we are pissing ourselves, as the guy doing the show comes towards us looking for more victims hubby legs it almost caught! We all get a bit more tanked up and await the club downstairs opening.

The club downstairs, is pretty busy, we buy yet more drinks, take the piss out of crap dancers and a group of 3 girls who were incredibly fat in incredibly small clothes! The same ones that killed every song they sung earlier, one of them looked like a guy in drag and another of them looked like nadia from big brother. They were very very scarey as they girated about. I have to say it was great sport bitching about them!

We had some odd moments when we discovered we all looked like twats under the uv lighting as our teeth glowed strangely! But then, alcohol makes you do silly things! well it makes me do slilly things!

I danced most of the time to pretty much anything, avoiding slimey locals trying to get close, obviously thinking we're tourists looking for a shag! I sidestepped a few more on the way to the loos too! Even one as i was about to enter the toilets! Well I know i was looking good, but so much attention, must be the blonde streaks!!!!! either that or the snug jeans! Even hubby got up and danced, amzing in itself.

I danced with S a few times, which was fun, but had the most fun dancing with C. We twatted about and whirled around, interpretting the words of the songs. We would have been great pans people!!!!! Until that is he was whirling me about i did this twirl thing, stetched out my arms and smacked a bloke stright in his face! Pmsl i was dying of embarressment, no well actually i almost pissed myself literally laughing. The guy was very sweet about it when i said sorry and kissed my hand! I made a hasty exit to the loos to regain my composure and my bladder!

I got through maybe 15 or so smirnoff ice red. I was pleasantly merry! Hubby didn't drink hardly anything, well compared to me anyway!, But he had been ill, hasn't he! C and I continued to jump about like twats, He and I had a lot of fun as Hubby rested and D chatted with him. S and K dancing. Had some fun dancing with K to the austin powers tune, all very coordinated and synchronised moves very slick, we looked fab!

Finally needing a breath I popped back to see hubby, who didn't look too pleased with me. I soon found out why! Apart from the fact i spent most of the night dancing with his mates strutting my stuff! It was gone 4am! He was wanting his bed! Rather he was wanting to drag me back to the hotel! So i downed my last drink rather fast, and boy did that one hit me! I was somewhat wobbly after that! K and S decided they wanted to stay so C, D and us got a taxi back to the hotel got our keys, the concierge gave us the wrong key, luckily i noticed as i compared the number on the card and key or we'd have been waking someone else up! Said our goodnights and went to our respective rooms! I by this time was sauntering about, a bit unsteady. Gagging for a pee.

We got to the room about 4.30am The hotel room was lovely and toasty, and in its dim lighting romantic even! As i lay knackered on the cool cotton sheets smiled smugly to myself that yet again i'd had a fecking fantastic night out, and the night was not yet over!

I woke up at 9.10am tiptoed about was about to get a shower when i dropped some stuff and woke up hubby. Just as well really cos brekkie was due to end at 10am!

At breakfast we got our table for 6, i feeling rather fragile, headed for the drinks, rehydration neeeded and we got some food. K and S turned up after an old saga biddy came up to our table and pinched a place setting, which i got replaced, later on she came and swiped more stuff from our table without so much as an excuse me cheeky bitch, i was so ready to give her a mouthfull!

Popped shopping later in the day, treated myself to some new trousers and homewood bound. The afternoon quiet till we popped out to get a takeaway, and then so bolloxed hubby fell asleep on the sofa as i fell asleep on sat on the floor next to the log fire. i've packed him off to bed now, i'm feeling refreshed!

So that was it, my night of merriment, last one for a while. I'm off out to the cinema with W this week though but it's gonna be alcohol free!
