i seem to have come down with a bad case of LJ related apathy. nice things keep happening and I want to tell people about them, but I am always thinking of them when i am nowhere near LJ, and then when I am in a position to make a post I find that I cannot be arsed anymore.
But, while I sit here waiting for my face mask to dry so I can peel it off, I shall make use of my time in briefly going over the nice things that have happened.
On Friday Ros came over and dragged me (well, I say dragged like it was a real chore and I would rather have been somewhere else, which is as far from the truth as it could have been!) to a party of one of her work mates. turns out her work mates are really cool people, and their friends are cool also (and include many people I know/recognise) so that was fun. We were drinking in the flat till about eleven or so, and then we went over the road to the Face Bar, Readings "alterntive" club. I say club, its more like a goth school disco. Anyway, fun was had, and we eventually rolled up at my house in a taxi at half 2 or so. Jamie was still up so we chatted for a little while and then Ros went home.
Weekend was fabulous because I did sweet F.A. for most of it! There was much rugby (my team beat Saracens, but didnt qualify for the EDF semi finals - boo! - and the Barbarians kicked South Africa's ass in a very satisfactory fashion. there was also the first Sevens tournament of the series, although we didnt win anything there). Saturday evening we were supposed to be joining Minty and the Reading ex-Stormwolf types for a celebration of Minty's birthday, however the world conspired against us and we were unable to go. Jamie made it up to me (for I had been looking forward to Pie) by taking me to Frankie & Benny's for food, as we had nothing in the house to eat due to us having already planned to eat out. I was brave and had a fish dish, but overall it wasnt great.
Sunday we popped into town and Shopped (although not as much as I would have liked, for Jamie needs new clothes but he wasnt in the mood to go clothes shopping). I bought new makeup (new foundation, new nail varnish and new lip colour) for the Christmas Party, and we generally had a nice time wandering about. Then we came home and relaxed some more.
Work on Monday was good, because there was new manager (only temporary, unfortunately, but a damn sight better than the last one!) and basically, we had a brief chat in the afternoon and it left me feeling incredibly motivated and happy, which was very good. As a result, I have been more focused and driven in work (not in a crazy way) and its a good thing. hopefully this will continue.
As mentioned before, there is a Christmas Party and it is tomorrow evening. So its a themed party (www.bestpartiesever.com
) "To Russia With Love". I will be wearing a black and gold chinese style dress (rather short), with black tights and my lurvely black fetishy boots with the open back and the straps. I am getting my hair cut (and therefore straightened) tomorrow afternoon, so will hopefully look absolutely fabulous. Will put pics up on Facebook most likely after the event (as then work people can see them).
Jamie is being a sweetheart and has taken Friday off work, so he can stay up late and come pick me up afterwards (last year I had to leave at midnight or I'd turn into a pumpkin). Party finishes at 1am, but last year carried on at someone's house, so I have no idea how long it will go on for this year!
I feel all clean now, for I have peeled off my face mask and everything. Am looking forward to getting my hair cut though, my hair has been getting a little uncontrollable of late and it will be nice to get it back under control.
