MIA…

Oops I’ve been a bit MIA haven’t I!

I’ve been really busy at work and for a change I had a social life last weekend and it was a 3 day weekend. Friday I had some mother/daughter time and treated my mum to afternoon tea. It was really nice just relaxing and chatting (and eating yummy food) as my mum lives 200 miles away so we don’t get masses of time to do this.

Saturday was another cold football game. We didn’t win but we did draw 4-4 which is more goals in one game than we’ve had all season. Then Saturday night aka Valentine’s night my hubby and I went out for a meal with my parents. We went to the local casino and the food was amazing especially the seabass. The gambling wasn’t so good and I came home £40 down but a good night was had by all.

Seabass

Tuesday I had to go to London with work which meant getting up at 5am and being on a train by 7am to get there for a meeting at 11am. Due to my injured foot I can’t use the tube as the stairs kill my foot so I use a private car at a fixed price for getting around. The weather in London was glorious so it was great to be driven around, window open, taking it all in. It was very busy what with it being school holidays and I only just made it to the office on time. Trips to London not only mean getting up at stupid o’clock but I don’t get home until gone 8pm. The meeting finished slightly early which gave me time to take up the 3 for 2 offer in The Body Shop and luckily the train was quiet on the way home so I could doze (although this always makes me nervous in case I miss my station and end up in Glasgow!). A very hungry me snaffled a couple of rounds of toast upon arriving home and headed straight to bed.

Ok so last night we went to a surprise birthday party which was awesome as I’ve never been to one where the guest of honour had no idea. As it was a surprise we had to be there at 7pm. Now i enjoyed getting ready and did my hair curly (see picture below) and for the first time in a while my eyes behaved and my eye makeup looked good (another eye update post is coming).

Both my hubby and i were drinking and as they didn’t serve prosecco i stuck to bottled beer (classy i know). The birthday boy arrived just after 7.30pm but to be honest by 9.30pm i was really flagging. So by 10pm we were in a taxi on our way home.

Now my hubby and i aren’t spring chickens but neither are we old – I’m 34 and he is 40 but man we felt old last night. I guess we prefer now to go out for a meal with friends or family or go to a pub where you can actually hear each other. We also really enjoy spending time with our family’s at home, particularly on a Saturday night after footy at my folks second home (they live 200 miles from me so bought a place here a few years back).

Now that may make us boring but so what, when you get to your mid thirties and work hard like we both do, our down time needs to be exactly what we want it to be. We thoroughly enjoyed last night even though we only knew a few people but i went straight to bed when i go home as i was knackered.

On another point, i enjoyed getting ready to go out and love making an effort however i hate taking off my makeup when it looks good! Does anyone else feel like this?
