I’m not even 30 yet but I can no longer handle nights out at all!  We met our sisters in town last night for dinner and drinks.  By 10:30pm, I was yawning away.  Albeit i had been awake since 6:45 because of rowing, but still, we had enjoyed a few cocktails which usually wake one up with the sugar and alcohol content!  Anyway, we were in bed by 12:30am (we stayed at some special hotel for Sam’s work it town!)

I must say, it has been a tiring week this week.  I went to the hairdressers tonight and that in itself zonked me out.  How is it that sitting can be so tiring?!  Whenever I go to the hairdresser, I normally drift off in to my dreamy-trance state and watch the music vids they have on.  However, all around are people chatting and I feel like I should be too.  But I don’t want to make conversation; not because I

Boo, the weekends go too fast. We had a long one this week too! Not that I am too fussed about going back to work per-say. But the getting-up early, travelling, general office stuffiness and post-work training all make Sundays especially so much more exciting!

Sam went and bought the PS3 Move yesterday. It is awesome! We have some sports game which we played yesterday. There is a gladiator combat game ad I whooped Sam’s arse on that! Today we bought a SingStar game which has dancing. We did three songs and it is so tiring. But it has video playback of you dancing and we look hilarious! Fun times!

Why is it, every time you just about feel on top of everything, something starts niggling away at you again.  I was feeling very happy and upbeat about everything when I got home today: I am on top of work and have only 10 mails in my inbox still, we are on top of the washing at home, most of my rowing admin is sorted, the bedroom is still insanely tidy from the weekend.  Then one little comment reminds you

The productive day was followed by the worst nights sleep I have had in ages. It was too hot, but too cold. My throat was killing me and I had very bizarre dreams. Then, when I woke-up, nose bleed. Hopefully the day will improve from here…

My laze around in bed was clearly the trick to a productive day!  I have cleaned our bedroom from top-to-toe and finished all remaining skirting board / door frame painting in there.  Hurrah!  It has been bugging me for a while.  I also made Sam some rock cakes, made a crumble (to have in a bit) and cooked Sam a steak dinner (salmon for me).  My finances are up-to-date and I re-potted my yukka which has been flopping around and

It’s chilly out this morning. Or, so it would seem but since it’s Sunday, I am lounging around in bed still! Every other day of the week, I would be far away by now, having endured the cold out doors to get where I was going. But Sundays, no, they are my day. Plus, today I am on call so I am being paid to stay in. Right now I am in my nice warm bed but tea and food

Ok, so exciting news. Yesterday evening I decided to indulge in a Series 4 Dr Who episode. Turns out the first episode you get in the series is the Kylie Christmas special! It seems I got my episodes in a jumble – silly me. Anyhow, this means I do have, in my eyes, the complete Dr Who collection! I might watch one now in fact with a nice hot cup of tea – such fun!

The parents Cook came to visit today and brought with them presents that could not make it pre-Christmas, a tin of Cadbury’s biscuits and a mini Rudolf-topped Christmas cake. It was most excellent. Amongst my feast of gifts was the box set of the full Series 5 of Dr Who. Bonza! My collection is now complete (save the 2009 David Tennant ‘specials’ of which one was good (Kylie one), two were mediocre and one (the Christmas one) was BAD! So,
