“I’m no good at anything. Not men. Not social skills. Not work. Nothing.”

So yesterday was an epic fail on my part. Come 6 o’clock I had a large glass of rose and the instant wave of happiness from that first cold sip was the decider that I am only a few public fuck ups away from being a 23 year old Bridget Jones.

I have had a slow start today, an undeserved lie-in. .a leisurely shower and well, I still haven’t done any work and its almost 2 pm. But. .there is still time for that! I have recently discovered the app ‘Evernote’, and whilst I think I may be incredibly slow to the table, I still am enjoying using it! I am one of those who gets so much joy from the planning, the list making. . highlighting, my god I love highlighting. It’s the task that I have spent three hours planning that I can’t be arsed taking on!

So with that reality looming, and taking on board that yesterday I did sweet FA. . I am going to make sure that today I definitely achieve at least two of things things off my latest Evernote list!

Right after food. . can’t think without food, so its all part of the task. . =)


Home Alone

So I have the next week alone starting from now and apart from the odd shift at the pub I have nothing to do, nobody to see and two very boisterous dogs to look after.  So to prevent the impending madness that is surely coming my way I am trying to plan ahead so that the loneliness doesn’t consume me. It’s got me thinking about those teenage horror films where a scantily clad girl will be ordering herself a pizza and making popcorn about to watch a movie alone. . and I am wondering, is this a real thing people do?? Can I even order a pizza for one person without having to add another £5 worth of food on so that I meet the delivery price. . .


Asking for suggestions because I don’t want to die of boredom this week. . I may even attempt the pizza delivery, see what happens!!! Kind of feels lame buying a pizza for myself…a bit like going to the cinema alone. . hmm 

Well would you look at that. . .

I have a number of new followers, so Hurray! .. and hello 😀 And thank you to Daniel for pimping out my site, I knew there was a reason I liked you.

As a sort of update from yesterday’s blog post, my puppy Beamish has been admitted to the vets for now, which is awful as my other older dog is now wandering around like a lost soul. . and has began humping his blankets. Grieving process huh? 

So still not feeling the love at the moment. It seems to be a non-stop crapfest. So I am using this to vent my feelings as apparently that helps? So this won’t be very literary at all Im afraid, but hopefully people enjoy reading casual chat? . . . You do right?

My mission of the day is now to at least start Pride and Prejudice, I have to read it for my module on Friday, so that is doable. . . I think. 

In other news: My kitchen has no eggs and no cheese. I don’t know what to do with myself now. Do people still eat just toast?? 

Don’t go just yet. . I promise these posts will improve. . almost certain of it!


I lost 4 1/2 lbs!!: )

Sooo, today was weigh in day! After my first week back on the diet I have tried as hard as I can, even though there have been a couple of events that require alcohol! I did it though, lost 4 1/2 lbs!! Very pleased with myself, but as a “treat” I bought a wrap from the shops on the way home, only to find it has 26 syns in it!!! Which for those who aren’t familiar with the diet, is absolutely scandalous! And so not worth it, it wasn’t even nice, it was soggy and frankly I could have eaten a few chocolate bars for the same syns and enjoyed it a hell of a lot more!

It made me realize how so many people (including myself in the past)think that sandwiches are a healthy option. I absolutely adore bread, and sandwiches, but they are just so naughty! I could probably eat a healthier ready meal. Just because it has bits of salad on it doesn’t mean its healthy, it has took me a long time to figure that one out 😦

Now I am sat watching lose women (which I bloody hate!) feeling very sorry for myself after my “treats”. So back on the healthyness later and going to make a slimmingworld meal of cheese and mushroom pasta 😀

I do love this diet!


Checking in. . 08/07/2012

Okay okay so I haven’t even managed to do a blog every other day, but here we are so let’s crack on. So what have I been up too since last time? Well I have not done a lot of reading! Shame on me for that. . and nor have I give my looming dissertation any further thought . . so educationally wise I have not done myself justice at all this week!

Spending money? Yeah, another thing I said I wouldn’t do but have yet to stop doing. It was my friends Hen do last night which is a guaranteed money squeezer of an occasion and I threw away a good £40 on drink, taxis and much needed take away food. So well done Fiona, I am letting not just myself down, but all the blogees I keep making empty promises too. .

What have I learnt? I have learnt to make more attainable goals. So today’s is to get through another 100 pages of 50 Shades Freed as I would like to move on from this trilogy before the end of next week! I think another thing I need to start remembering is that people, will not always treat you the way you treat them, and to stop letting that kind of thing bother me so much. I guess it is always disappointing when somebody reveals themselves to be less loyal than you thought them to be, but I guess that says more about them than me so hey ho!

New goal. . . I want to save up. . . *deep breath* for a kindle!! I THINK. It is paining me to admit this now after all my arguments against them, but ever since beginning the 50 Shades trilogy I have found a great desire to be holding a kindle! That probably says a lot about my sillyness as it is only a book but I think I would have been able to read it outside of my bedroom if I could disguise it as something more innocent!, and therefore be done with it by now! Also, I am not sure if I am ready to stop buying books, but do I have the space for any more?? They currently surround my bed and I don’t want them to be damaged, so maybe a kindle is for the greater good?!

What do we think guys? Kindle? Bookshelf? Stop buying books that I can’t accommodate?
