It’s Cold Outside..

September 12, 2010 6 comments

Daylight in the UK ending at around 8pm at the moment, suddenly noticed it’s got flipping freezing too. Cannot believe it’s as late as September. This summer has gone so quick, and as usual our summer ended around June time, just average days without much heat.

Had a odd summer, have been single for many years and recently started wondering if I should actually be with someone, having my doubts about it, but certainly more open to meeting a new man. Miss having someone around, miss missing someone. Really started to change thinking differently about lots of aspects to my life.

Felt guilty not posting on here, haven’t bought as many different products last two months, had awful experience with one company, put a whipped soap on my skin, within 30 seconds my entire chest and arms looked like I had been out in the sun for 10 days solid. Was burnt .. BIG time.

Been buying lots of Haus Of Gloi, still 100% addicted to their products, only Elevenses is the one scent I’m not keen on, but then I don’t like tea smells. Been buying all the limited edition and Reverie products. Will do a review of the Halloween items that should be on my doorstep in the next day or two I hope.

Anyone who stills read this say Hi, have noticed I’ve had a lot of hits but have really struggled recently posting anything anywhere. Even Facebook friends are asking where I have been!!

Tomorrow will have to read up on blogs etc, past week have been so busy, my son was away on a school hoilday, I had a few things to do, and been totally obsessed with the UK Big Brother and the lovely romance between Josie and John James. Who I admit to having a huge girly crush on. *swoon!!! Love the 24 hour online streaming however I’ve not had much sleep!!!!!!!

Have a few hauls hoping coming the next week, and will finally get around to posting a collective Haus Of Gloi haul blog as I’ve had all the scents for past few weeks now.

Don’t Bite Me

July 10, 2010 2 comments

Cooking pasta earlier tonight ended up in a rather nasty attack.

So… I’m there draining the pasta, minding my own business.

Pan in hand, I feel a sting, a real nasty pinprick.

Look down to my left leg, to find a huge, scary and damnright evil and quite frankly arrogant looking spider with it’s fangs in my leg.

How dare it. And where the heck did that come from.

Just managed to push it away from munching on my leg any further.

Evil Spider sat there looking up at me, with a smug look ready to pounce again. I was too quick for it though, and it soon found itself outside.

Luckily didn’t drop any pasta in my random UNPROVOKED spider attack.

This was about 9 hours ago, and I still every so often feel like I have a spider running along my skin. And a few times have just jumped at the thought of it. I’ve had like 3 phantom invisible spiders crawl along me whilst writing this, scarred for life.

Knightmares are in my future.

Another Birthday Has Passed

July 9, 2010 5 comments

Thank god the day is over, starting to really dislike my birthday, every year I attempt to do something wacky, odd, special, and it never works out.

Was just any other day. Just changed a number that’s all.

Next year am not thinking about it in advance, and will try and make sure no one remembers it!!!!!

No More Squirty Shower

So yay the shower cord got fixed, have shower working.

Cleaned up the gazillion flies. In the stupid friggin heat.

Woke up to find my sons hamster had died in the night. He was about a year old. We buried him and said goodbye. Bless him he was so friendly and just stayed still on my sons arms when he held him the last year. Awww. Gone to hamster heaven to run around in a big hamster wheel.

For Fudge Sake.

July 3, 2010 2 comments

This evening has been bad.

Really friggin crappy bad.

Firstly was having a late night shower, was in a bit of a hurry ~ wanted to watch something on TV live, and gave myself 35 mins to shower and be ready in time for said live TV thingy.

And halfway through washing felt something pop. And the shower cord/pipe started squirting out water in three different directions. Also noticed on the base of the pipe there was a balloon of water building up. Then only half of the normal amount of water from the showerhead came out.

My shower is half shower half bath mixer. And is all combined so cannot simply remove the cord it will need someone to come do that.

But it’s now Saturday.

And the Estate Agent who I rent from is not the quickest person getting things done. I just KNOW she won’t get someone out on a Saturday to fix this.

We’re in the middle of a rare English summer. Need my friggin shower working and not squirting water all over the friggin floor.

Rang my dad to basically just let off steam and he didn’t understand the stress of no shower until next week. Or my anxiety over it all.


So a few hours later, I go upstairs to make my bed. The bedroom window has been open all evening, and my window is by a outside light which is left on all night.

I switch light on to find 23,473 little flies (give or take one or two), daddy long legs, all sorts having a insect orgy by my light. ARGHHHHHHH. Underneath my light is my bed.

Just thinking of how many flies have dropped onto bed is driving me nuts.

May have to sleep on the couch tonight until I throughly clean bedroom out tomorrow.

Ah for feck sake. Normally wouldn’t mind. But know tomorrow I will be trying to find a way of making shower work. Last thing I wanna think about is going on a mad fly hunt too.

Petty I know but it’s nearly 2am. Tired, been a hot day and so friggin frustrated.

Poxy flies and squirty showers. 😦
