I know you're jealous

I can't wait until after the wedding, I'm planning on doing something other than the odd trim with my hair. Whether that's a fringe or cutting it off, I'm not quite sure yet. I'm currently loving these styles.

I tried having a side fringe years ago but it didn't last very long, it wasn't very thick and I played with it all the time causing it to become greasy so in the end I grew it out and that was that. I would still really like one though but I'm not 100% sure I'm brave enough.

Summer has arrived

In the form of potted bedding plants at least. It's been a strange day of drizzling rain, clouds, high winds (causing one side of my body to freeze in work) and now glorious sunshine. It really is lovely outside.

Yesterday, after I managed to drag myself up to get dressed at a very late hour, my mother and I went off to Peterstone to visit a nursery to pick up some flowers for the summer pots. It's somewhat of a tradition that has developed over the years between my mum and I. Tonight is the night they're going to be potted, but before they were planted into their new homes for the next couple of months I took some photos. Not very good photos I'm sure, but photos that weren't taken with my iPhone!



Mug four...or five today.

Something other than a photo

I have a new bed, I'm finally back in the land of the double bed and oh how I've missed it. It was installed yesterday and what a difference it's made to my bedroom! It actually feels like a grown up room now and strangely it feels more like a bedroom than it did before. The mattress is, at this stage, perhaps a bit too firm for me so I may have to get hold of a mattress topper to see if that makes things a bit more comfortable.

Thanks to imcountingufoz I have been introduced to a new online shop (this one should you be wondering) and right away I have found the perfect summer dress to wear to Jon and Mike's wedding party on the 29th but woe! they've sold out of my size :( Gutted. There's so much on that site that I would love though but I'm being good. The being good today is a result of shelling out nearly £100 for Matt and I to go and see the Harlem Globetrotters on 6 June. About three days ago Matt and I had a rather sleepy conversation (on my part) and he told me that he's always wanted to see the Globetrotters, last night I was browsing online looking to see what gigs are coming up this year and there were the words telling me that they're in Cardiff on the day Matt flies in! I had to double check with him to make sure I hadn't dreamt our conversation as it seemed too good to be true, but no, I hadn't dreamt it. I have no idea what to expect from the whole thing but Matt informs me that it'll be "amazing". I'm looking forward to it as I'm sure that if he's having fun I'll have fun.

I've been in e mail communication with the vicar that's marrying us and we've arranged to go and meet him on the 9th June to have a chat and have a good look around to church to see how we want to decorate it (!!). I'm thinking about e mailing him just before and asking him if I can take my camera, then I'll be able to share some photos on here. It's so small inside, I love it. I'm hoping that me, my dress and my dad will fit down the aisle.

I'm off to Marseille on Saturday for the night, I've heard mixed reviews on what it's like there but as I'm only there to watch Cardiff Blues vs. Toulon in the Amlin Cup final. I'll be back in Cardiff by 11pm on the Sunday, yay for having to get up at 6.30am the next day.

The plans for my hen do are being organised by my maid of honour, the plans have changed so many times thanks to me changing my mind but I think I've finally settled on the idea of having a bridal shower at home. I know that Ann Summers has been mentioned but other than that I don't know what's happening. It's ages away yet but I'm already nervous!

Soup for lunch

It's not turning out to be what I need on a day like this.

Tuesday, 4 May 2010


Following on from this entry, I bring you this entry to show the difference in supermarkets (and perhaps classes).

I have just spent £15 on the following at Asda:

Box of Cadbury's Brunch Bars
Pack of bagels
Two large bags of mixed salad
A small cheese and onion quiche
Pack of pesto salad (pasta in pesto sauce and pine nuts to go with salad in case you were wondering)
Two mini pots of salad dressing, one French and one balsamic
Pack of croutons
Cotton wool pads
Nine pack of Walkers crisps
Ham off the bone
Eight yoghurts

Bit different from my trip to Waitrose isn't it?
