OMG 3 MONTHS?!?!
Yes I'm ashamed to admit that thats how long since I last posted! I'd like to say that I've been horrendously busy and have loads of news and interesting things to share but in fact I haven't. My life has just been in one of those little dark holes so I just thought it was better to keep it to myself. Not that anything bad has happened, but I've just been feeling very down.
Anyway it's amazing the difference those little tablets from the doc make lol, oh that and the fact that in 9 days I'm going on a CRUISE!!
It's my very first cruise (yes I have reached that age) and to say I'm getting excited is an understatement. Everyday I wake up and write lists, lists of what I need to pack, what I still need to buy/find, jobs to do before we go, things my mum and dad will "need" to know as they are looking after darling Daisy whilst we're away.
We're "doing" the Norwegian fjords so what do I pack? So far the spare bed is covered with piles of trousers and crops, t-shirts, blouses, jumpers, cardigans, swimwear, waterproofs, scarf and gloves?? I know we're not restricted by weight as we're not flying but I still don't want to take my entire wardrobe "just in case"! And the of course theres what to wear in the evenings, 2 formal nights, 2 semi formal and 3 smart casual!! Thanks to loosing all that weight last year I don't even have a large wardrobe to choose from, I have had to buy virtually everything. All I can say is thank god for ebay as I have got some cracking bargains on new with label items. The best being an M&S silk evening dress label price £99 I paid £10.23 inc postage, a Joules summer dress from this seasons range label £79 I paid £11.97 oh and latest is a monsoon evening dress label £129 I paid £16.52 in p+p!!
Nothing like a bargain to cheer you up hey!!
I think between ebay and primark I have probably kitted myself out for less than £200 funded mainly by selling my outgrown clothes on ebay and of course G.
Then there's all the other stuff I need to take, netbook, mobile, binoculars, camera (new one on order from amazon due to arrive monday) books for me, kindle for G (check he's uploaded more books onto it) emergency sewing kit for loose buttons and dropped hems, crafty project to do whilst I'm away (sewing or beading?), portable harddrive, batteries!!!
Okay enough! I need coffee before I start to panic!
Then I can see what's on todays list ??
