OMG how true can these things be...

When I was in Adsa today I got a wee mini Bop It. Hadn't played it for about 4 years, but OMG I had almost forgotten just how much fun it was. So simple yet so so so addictive - last time I played they kicked me out the log cabin cos I was so annoying with it (was all K's fault for bringing it though). Will need to have a party soon cos it is mucho funno when you're all pissed.

Photoshop was excellent last night - quite complicated but really really good results.

Got to dash cos little Bop It is sitting beside my kepboard looking at me.

Begin Again

After a really really hellish week last week, which brought even more bad news towards the end of the week, it's time to get over it.

As luck would have it, I managed to persuade C to go to the Killers with me, only to then get a text from B this morning to say that she knew someone who'd like to go with me too (I don't know who - the msg was a bit cryptic but I think it is someone i don't know) - have ended up with 4 tix so will see how it goes.

Went to visit Mum earlier cos she got back from hols yesterday morning - she brought me loads of nice stuffs (included Chanel No 5, which I love and had none left), she also had an invite for me to a party in Feb, which should be good cos G's going too.

Going to start my clear-out later - also going to get rid of my other monitor as G & A bought a pc with a monitor thrown in so they don't need it anymore and it is a bit heavy for my glass desk. I'm aiming to get shot of around 50% of clothes and 20% of shoes and bags (although realistically it won't happen - I'll end up just buying more storage boxes!).

The week with no number

Since I don’t believe in giving days or weeks a rating of less than 4, this week shall henceforth be known as the week with no number.

Got off to a bad start yesterday when I got some really bad news when I went into work. That sort of put me on a downer for the day

Was looking forward to going to John Cale last night, but it didn’t materialise – went to Photoshop instead, which was good but quite difficult. Loathe myself for having something to eat when I went home though, as trying not to eat after 3pm. At least TBC came yesterday, although it’s still lying in my bag as wasn’t in the mood for it.

Today isn’t much better to be honest – still hate myself for letting myself go so much that I am just a big blob. To make matters worse, I can’t even get anyone to go to The Killers with me – all my friends are either busy or don’t want to go – so it’s looking like I’ll have to go on my own, which won’t be nearly as much fun.

So basically, at the moment all my high hopes for this year are fading fast already – hopefully next couple of days will bring an upturn.

Just Stuff

Just a little update on things so far... Friday nigh was great, although meal at Est Est Est was very average (and overpriced). Had such a laugh at the Jam House as it was a really good crowd that turned up. I had sore feet by 1am, which wasn't too bad considering I had had my new shoes on since 8 in the morning without a break. Got home about 2:45 and just went straight to bed.
Yesterday I didn't do much - just the usual boring housy stuff, then went with M to see H & O in their dance show. They were really good (so were E & R, the other 2 girls I knew who were in it). Was finished by 10:30 so nipped into Asda on the way home (but forgot to get milk again and really fancy tea or coffee - can't really be arsed going to the shop though so will just have hot orange instead).
Got some cards and jewellery to catch up on today, but I sort of know what I'm doing for most of the stuff so should get it finished today.
Hopefully going to John Cale with N tomorrow, so will report back.

One Hundred Percent...

...going to The Killers next month. Thinking about making it the start of a long weekend as it's my birthday that weekend and I don't normally do anything for it.
Also added to my list of things I need to start doing:
  • Use a different handbag each day (or thereabouts) instead of using one for months and having the rest all piled up in boxes.
  • Ditto shoes and boots
  • Eat a breakfast - I loathe eating in the mornings, but I must learn to do it - had some Special K this morning and it was ok.
  • Chuck out some clothes

Will add more when I think of them.

ttfn xoxo

Burn Babeh, Burn

Wooohoooo ordered the Burning Crusade today (even though I've not even been on WoW for a week). Should come tomorrow, but going out tomorrow night & Friday & Sat so may get a quick couple of hours on Thursday. Did sensible stuffs too like order some stuff for making necklaces to add to my non existant stock.
Managed to pick up some garments on my hour long (!!!!!) shopping trip on Saturday - only have a couple of take-backs in amongst them, so I'll do that on my way home on Thursday night. Killing time atm til I go for my hair cut - can't wait cos I look so skanky with the last week or so.
College class started back last night - it was great to get back into it. Sneaked a peek at the macs when I was going along the corridor.
GTG cos either need to clean desk before I go back out or think about cleaning it and do it when I get home again.
ttfn xoxo

Reality Strikes

Well, that's almost my first full week back at work and it really hasn't been too bad at all (although I'm struggling to get up in the mornings, which isn't like me). Very positive about this year though (even if I do already know a few bad things are going to happen). I've not posted the last few days cos all my waking, non-working hours have been taken up by watching the darts!!!

Lucky Mum is off to the Caribbean tomorrow - so jealous.

Going to
The Jam House for a leaving night next Friday, so need to try to pick up a new outfit tomorrow lunchtime. Oh and getting hair done on Tuesday, which is great news cos the other day it looked so skanky I had to wear my fave Chanel lipgloss just to make me look half presentable. Was going to do the whole skirt and high heels thing today, but the weather was shit so opted for trousers and boots instead - I swear bloody crappy Scotland is the biggest hinderence to my glamness.

Got C & A coming for dinner on Sat, which will be fun as I'll get to do my Nigella bit, then drink copious amounts of champagne, red wine and amaretto :D:D:D. Must rem to shift remainder of underlay that i put in the dining room when I got the hall done though.

Anyways ttfn bloggy-types, hopefully I'll post tales tomorrow full of the joys of walking into the first clothes shop I see and finding the perfect outfit right by the door (although knowing me, the tales could well be of a tantrum I have in a clothes shop cos they don't have anything I want).

In 2007 I hope to...

...do the following things (plus some others)
  • work less play more :D:D
  • make a shedload of stuff and do a craft fair
  • drop some weight
  • become more glam
  • get back to the gym
  • try to see my friends more
  • throw some parties
  • not change too much (cos I love being me)

Hopefully the above things will make me more like the old Lisa. I've also got a couple of things I really wish will happen, but obviously I can't write them down or they won't.

ttfn xoxo

The Luck of Lisa

Today was the best ever first-day-back-at-work-after-the-holidays!!! Heating is broken and building is absolutely freezing so we got sent home at 11:30. I am so happy cos it is like getting another day's holiday - and I really couldn't get motivated today :D:D:D
Off to do something productive with my bonus half day :D:D:D

Happy New Year

Well 2007 is upon is and I hope it's a bit cheerier than 2006. Best just to say 2006 wasn't really a personal best for me - seem to have got to that stage in my life where all my friends have gotten married or are in long-term relationships, so never seem to be available for nights out etc - I suppose this is just something I'm going to have to come to terms with, although it's difficult for me cos I love going out so much.

2006 did bring some good things. Went on holiday with Mum and we got on fine, which was a relief. Also managed to get some decorating done and new carpets in the rooms that needed them. Worked far too many hours, which meant jewellery and card making had to take a back seat, which was really disappointing for me - I had so many plans and ideas for stuff, but no time/energy to put them into action.

Hogmanay plans didn't go quite according to plan, as weather meant Stirling Castle got cancelled. Went down to M's though and we had a nice night watching tv with the girls.

Back to work tomorrow - this seems to have been the shortest Christmas break ever - been really tired and drained all hols so that's most of the stuff I had planned to do still not done.

Anyways I have a list as long as a monster's arm for all the things I want to do in 2007 both personally and to make me a better person.

ttfn - hope 2007 brings you everything you wish for.
