All hail Ale

Got into work today and my colleague opened a box he received whilst being away. The box was from our MD and inside to every one's delight were bottles of Ale. They were distributed out between those in distance ready for the end of play. The day went passed quickly, obviously the Friday feeling getting everyone in the mood. It was a will I/won't I for drinks after work but eventually decided that I was in the game. Work finished and we got involved with the Ale, really weren't for me though so switched to Southern Comfort and then onto some drink my friend had brought in which contained gold. Yes Gold! Freaked me out seeing all the bits floating about but I had two shots and onwards and upwards. Stayed out for a couple which was selfish as my girls not feeling too good so I am now joining the dog in the kitchen... and we're cleaning each other!

On the Piste...

Not one to spoil the fun, honestly as that isn't my style, instead you have the option!

If you don't want to know where it is then don't click on the above link. If like me you grew tired of the drip feed of clues as to the destination then click away. I have to say that I am really intrigued by what could be on the agenda although I think that it's a move the company may regret looking back on the state of certain individuals at previous parties. Over drinking, injuries, personality extremes, behaviour issues, being evicted from the venue and this is just my list of wrong doings. Should be a good night anyway although I will be Cinderella and will be leaving early to hook up with my girl. That still leaves many of the usual suspects though so expect a list of who did what and where!!

Love the chocolate factory

Spoke too soon about being organised as tonight showed that things can mess up so easily. Got home from work in good time, headed towards my mums as my children were being dropped there. Halfway through the journey I got stuck in traffic so my journey became the extended edition with the making of and also bonus features. Managed to listen to my Kanye albums through and then after cursing my way through the traffic I arrived. The greeting I got was great, kids said hello and my brother yelled from upstairs. My boy had missed the toilet and there was 'chocolate' everywhere! Delightful and I loved my quiet moment with it and cleaning his clothes, lovely. After this we headed to the shops to pick up some advent calendars. With December days away needed to be prepared for them. Rushed got dinner for them, shovelled it down and then dropped them off before heading to my girls. Wednesday club is great fun, just ask these guys...

It's that time of year

Your friendly neighbour!

Tonight got in from work and kicked off our neighbourhood stay safe scheme, amazingly next door also kicked off with a disagreement. You couldn't plan these things I swear! Anyway we got into action and it's early days of our new scheme but we sat ourselves on the stairs and listened as the disagreement took place. Not sure what it was over but I hope that when me and my girl disagree we don't sound like this haha. We don't though as I feel it's not about arguing as we have both had our fair share in the past. Makes me wonder if our old neighbours were doing the same back then!

Eventually I reached the top of the stairs as I only really started to head up to go toilet. Interrupted again though as I tried on my new skinny jeans my girl got me, they were a wicked fit and they made me look good as well. Only down point is I couldn't get them off!!! One foot was fine but I think where I injured my foot a few years back that it still bears some swelling. It took me a good ten minutes to wiggle them off. The price of fashion hey! I love it!!!

PA needed??

Not anymore as I feel like I am in control of my affairs, it's taken a long time but I feel confident and organised. I won't say that I am where I want to be as far from it as I want so much more but I feel like I am more in the right direction than ever. I am into my early starts at work now as unlike before getting in way before the start of the day I am able to build up into work mode. Tonight was all about shopping, although we are watching a few things on Ebay so we were also connected to the site through the mobile. We are geeks but hey someone's got to do it! I am becoming a bit of a master at shopping, if it became an Olympic sport I would enter as tonight I saved a fifth of the total bill. High five I hear you so, no I want a ten!!!

Every face tells a story!!

Today was the usual madness, my girl had a lay in which was all good but also bad which was my fault entirely as this kind of messed up the game plan. My boy had a party to get to at 1:30 so once we all got in gear it was plentiful fun, beautiful action. After arriving I was slightly nervous that it would be the mystery birthday part two put it was all good. He is so me!!! Earlier he had stripped all the labelling from his camera and was marching into the party looking eager. The camera looked wasted so I said could I take it and he said that he was taking it to the party to take photos of his friends, Get in there haha!!

Anyway after the party escapade I dropped my daughter to her Nans for a few hours whilst we headed over to Bluewater for a browse. Usual shopping activities and looking for the deals although not too many about it seems but picked up some lovely clothes for my boy. On returning from the shops we arrived back at my Mum's and the children were busy with face paints. My boys looked good but that wasn't going to last as he soon got to work on it himself shortly afterwards.

While this was going on Spurs were coming unstuck against West Ham. Poor old Spurs can't seem to string any sort of run together! Me and my brother practised chest bumps but this looked awful on camera so we moved away from our male affection. Next up the girls got involved with the facepaint leaving me and the boy to hit the attic and look for a single receipt and also to find stuff to sell on eBay. Success in both departments so with the Xbox 360 winging in for repairs the Nintendo Wii will be soon on route. Gaming for Christmas looks like being on the agenda. Maybe?!?
Also found some gels and hair sculpting products in the attic which I passed on to my boy and he looked delightful once he had finished. Headed home at this point and after a pit stop at McDonalds and drama at the Esso where some guy ran out with a purse thinking it was my girls only to be chased by the correct owner. I also nearly got reported for petrol theft and then there's the running out of battery, sim problems and the late running of their mum. We laugh so much!!

Life in a cup!!!

Quite a mad ending to the day yesterday, hence the lack of a real update. Well as you could see I was busy, from arriving in the office and being shocked at the mess of a colleagues desk. To lunch where I designed myself a fake ID from the movie Superbad. Not actually seen the film but I know the part that it is referring to. After work we cooked ourselves like Pop Tarts at the sunbed shop and then it all went a bit pear shaped.

Bouncing back today and was it the road to redemption. Not likely as after collecting the kids from the Church function we headed to the shops and then on again to Costa. Never again! I am boycotting them, not for the taste, service or time frame. Nope, I am steering clear due to their poxy drink carriers! Got in the car drove down the road and it was like we were in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory as it went everywhere. Anyway this is why I spent hours trying to calm myself and in doing so managed to get all the cogs in the system working again. I feel a Power Up coming....

Woah I got a fake ID

Note to self...

If you're going to come in later than your colleagues expect anything to greet you on your arrival!! All I have to say is that I had nothing to do with this at all!!
