Daily Blog Post- Friday 22nd Jan 2016

Hello and Happy Friday!

My many, many apologies for not daily blogging over the last couple of days. On Wednesday I had a very typical day at work and came home, had dinner and went to bed. The day was not worthy of blogging about. Unless you wanted to know what I had for dinner!

Yesterday I spent most of the day in bed, in my trusty pyjama’s, so again nothing note worthy to report (such a rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle huh!).

Today I really haven’t done much else. Again been in my pj’s and in the flat. My lovely monthly friend came for a visit (you catch my drift ladies?!) so I have resulted to another lazy day. I hope to be back to actually doing stuff with my life tomorrow. I can’t fester in my bed much longer.

I don’t want to go into too much specifics, but every month, pretty much like clockwork my body will go to it’s monthly cycle (sorry if this is TMI btw!) and I get cramps for about 24 hours. Normally I result in taking some paracetamol and grinning and bearing it. But I find it does dictate my life to some degree. If I know when it will appox be and I have something planned for the same time, then I have to think realistically if I can do said plan as otherwise I will be only good for lying on the sofa or bed. Christmas and the day after my wedding have both been times I have cursed mother nature.
But equally there has been times I have been grateful for the luck of the date it’s been on.
I have been to the doctor’s but I’ve not had much joy other than been given some strong painkillers, which didn’t work and made me feel sick. The pill isn’t an option as I have family medical history that would dictate it wouldn’t be best for me to take it.
So I tend to get through it in my own way. Sucks, but that’s the card I’m dealt.

So anyway, I have found this a useful day to update my blog and do a bit of socialising on line and being able to engage with you lovely lot (or just you as I don’t know how many people actually read what I write!).
I did find out from my colleague today that the managers had chosen me (little ole me) as the Roofraiser (basically an employee of the month incentive) for January! Not that I want to brag but there are over 100 staff in my work, so I’m chuffed that they thought I was worthy of such an accolade 🙂

A day of randomness…when looking through some old photo’s with Dan, as he writing a book and needed some photo’s to go in it, I found this letter, coinsdentally from exactly 17 years ago today!
I wrote to a pop magazine called Big! (showing my age) to ask for a fanmail address for a long time defunct American boyband called Take 5. This was before I had email, so they had to reply via snail mail! Nowadays I would probably just tweet them!

On a different note, I do have an event to attend to tomorrow down the road. My husband is part of a local self published author group and they had a writing competition going via the local paper and they are awarding the winners tomorrow. Local and well known author Kate Mosse will be there, and I have been asked by Dan to help take some photos. Could be interesting how my photo’s turn out!

I’m also looking forward to being able to wear my new Sleek cosmetics eyeshadow pallette tomorrow. I haven’t used Sleek products before, but after watching a youtube video with a vlogger using it, I wanted to give it a go.

I might try and go to a local car boot on Sunday, as it’s also down the road (useful living by the town centre!) and see if there are any goodies to be found for something to do with the day.

I might also try to go out somewhere with my sister as she owes me a day out!

Anyway I’ll leave it here as that has brought you up to speed with my day. Hopefully be back tomorrow with another daily blog post! Thank you eternally for reading!


P.S. Sorry for the lack of photo’s with this post. My spotty face and greasy hair should not be seen. I’ll endeavour to make up for photo’s tomorrow!
