| I'm super proud of myself right now - Mood:Good|
Monday November 13 20172:16:23 PM |
|So today I went out to eat with my husband for lunch. We tried a new tapas place and the service was great and the food was really good too. We each ordered a coke, which was served in a half pint glass packed with ice. |
We ordered another coke after we'd finished off the first ones, and I watched the bartender open a can of coke and spread it out between the two glasses.
Then our bill came, charging £2.50 x 4 for the 4 drinks.
Anyway, I'm really proud of myself because when it came time to pay, I asked the waitress about it, telling her that a half pint can only fit 10 oz and that with the ice, it was much less, not to mention I'd watched a single can of coke be split between the two glasses.
And she was just like, "Yeah, that's a bit too much" and then went and took the charge off.
I'm not one to usually speak up about things...but I'm determined to become that type.

|For me, five minutes ago, watching the episode of Futurama where Leela meets her parents. I must have seen that episode at least half a dozen times before, but something about it today just really hit my emotional wreck side. |
I got some fancy chocolates today and some flowers. I've already eaten half the box!
How are y'all? What's the Saturday night plans?

|As of my last appt, the midwife told me the baby was still breach (head up), but I don't know how to tell if he's moved. I guess just wait until my next appt. It's weird because I swear I feel feet at the top of my stomach. |
I was told by two people today that I "looked like I was done". But it's true. I am.
I won a £20 voucher at work for having my name mentioned the most on customer service surveys in the month of October! That's exciting. Haven't won this since April, and that month I had to split it with another because we were mentioned equally.
I also have £10 in vouchers at The Body Shop to use. Might buy myself something pamper-y for my birthday!
On my way home, I embarrassed myself. I saw a couple from afar who looked like they were going into the end house.

| I only have 7 days left of work - Mood:Good|
Wednesday November 01 201711:14:29 AM |
|Thurs/Fri this week, W-F next week, then Th-F the week after. |
Then maternity leave...and Thanksgiving...
I'm so glad that maternity leave is coming because my commute makes my 7.5 hour day 12 hours long
I had about 7 days left of holiday which I've spread out over my last month. Today being one of those days. Spending it watching Stranger Things. Wishing I could watch with no bra on but I can't because we might have the builders come by to check on the bathroom floor.
Oh well. If they're not here by 5, it's free the boobs time.
Still have a bit to get ready for the baby. Hospital bag, washing all the clothes/linens/etc, finishing the nursery. So it'll be nice to have the time off for it.

| Is this weird? - Mood:Good|

|I always make the bed before I get into it. Even if it's right before I'm getting into it. |
I have to make it first. Not necessarily pulled super neatly if I'm about to get into it, but the fitted sheet always gets repulled over the mattress just to make sure it's tight.
Anyone else do this or am I insane?
I'm really excited to have dinner tonight. Baked potato (oven baked!), salad, and steak. And...with...blue stilton! Because after 7 1/2 months of no blue cheese I just found out that the risk of listeria from blue stilton is so low that the NHS has said it's perfectly safe to have while pregnant!
I watched Gerald's Game last night. I didn't really remember the book until watching the scenes unfold. Really enjoyed it! Still no Okja.
What's going on YT? How's everybody feeling?

| Sickly - Mood:Good|
Thursday October 05 20172:30:17 PM |
|We just moved into our new house and it's been days upon days of really crazy chaotic frenzy. It's taken its toll on me and I've come down with some sort of illness. I took today off in hopes that I would feel better, but unfortunately I feel even worse tonight than I did at the start of the day. Not sure about going into work tomorrow at this rate. |
I just ordered some Chinese takeaway, some spicy chicken and hot soup will hopefully help.
My hubby is much sicker Not man-flu sicker, but legitimately very ill. I'm trying to take care of him the best I can but he's hard to take care of. Thankfully he was able to take the night off from work.
I think his is the result of cleaning our old flat which had a fair bit of dust/mould. Maybe mine too, who knows. Or maybe it's from the flu shot!?
When was the last time you were ill?

| Randomly craving Lucky Charms - Mood:Good|

|I wish I knew somewhere around here that sells them! I mean, I know you can get them online but I want some like...now. |
Instead I'm having loaded mashed potatoes with chicken nuggets for dinner.
I got a new bra the other day and subsequently my back has hurt so much less the last two days.
Also thinking about organising a bake sale at work to raise money for relief efforts. There are so many. Anybody have any good suggestions?
Also, can someone please clarify the past tense of blow dry for me? It always tangles my tongue.
At work I had to attend the weekly meeting my supervisor usually attends and give the stats he usually gives. I wasn't looking forward to it, but it turned out there was cake!
And our house sale is getting down to the wire. Keys in hand in 9 days. So very exciting. We got to go inside the other day for the first time!
