***I went out for lunch today. And ended up spending 130 pounds. Oopsy. Okay, part of the money went towards a 30th birthday present for one of my friends, AND the aforementioned lunch. Feeling a bit guilty, but at least it was birthday money and money I didn't spend while I was on holiday. And I got a couple of nice outfits and some cute pyjamas, so I guess I should just enjoy my purchases.

***I'm STILL wondering how the idiot on our coach transfer to Malaga airport yesterday managed to leave his suitcase in the hotel . . . AND NOT EVEN NOTICE!!! Freaking weirdo.

***Despite eating and drinking waaayyy too much in Spain (half board so ridiculous amounts at the buffet morning and evening, too much bread and pate and/or cheese eaten on the balcony at lunch, waaaayyy too much Sangria and cava - the only thing I did right was avoid full fat fizzy drink, which is usually my downfall on holiday), I only put on 0.8 of a pound in weight. I'm pretty relieved about that. The diet will begin once again on Monday. And this time, I mean business...

***I'm pleasantly surprised at the weather here. I was expecting Glasgow to turn wintery while I was in Spain. But the past two days I still haven't been wearing a jacket, and I'm STILL too warm. Weird... Oh well, I'm sure autumn will hit properly any day now. Boo.

***I'm annoyed at the X Factor and the way it assumes I have no life and will devote both Saturday AND Sunday nights to it. Particularly annoying when tonight's show lasted nearly three hours. Um - excuse me X Factor . . . when do you expect me to actually, I dunno, LEAVE THE HOUSE???

***I'm back at work on Monday for the first time in over a week. And there's only two reasons I'm not completely dreading it. One is because if I have new clothes to wear, I don't mind work as much. And as for the other reason . . . well, I don't think I need to elaborate on that one.

***Oh and I only have one half day left of annual leave to take before Christmas. This is going to be a long couple of months. Argh!!!

***Considering I had nothing to say, this has turned into a longer post than anticipated. Off to drink more sparkling rose wine now. Ciao!

Any nice plans this weekend?


  1. Haha, I know, sadly X Factor will ALWAYS win over Saturday night plans (or at least put them off 'til later!), who are you rooting for this year? I am so in love with Matt Cardle! :)

  2. I quite like Matt too, I have to admit. I also loved Cher Lloyd's audition but I was really disappointed with her performance last night. That Tracy girl, the wildcard one (I can't remember how to spell her name) really impressed me though...

  3. You totes need a DVR or something to record X-Factor.

    I'll see if I can get a picture of my new bracelet for you. My camera isn't of very good quality so I won't make any promises.

  4. I don't normally watch X Factor but was round at a friend's house on Saturday night and ended up watching it and pretty much the only comment I made was when I suddenly burst out with "OH MY GOD IS IT NOT OVER YET?" when the 13 millionth ad break came on.

    I can't believe someone managed to leave their suitcase in the hotel - classic!

    Holiday money is meant to be spent without guilt. I say just enjoy it!

  5. I hope your weekend turned out well!
