Sunday Rambles once again

Hey chicks!

Time for yet another ramble on…yes, you guessed it, a Sunday! What have your smiles & frowns of the week been?

Smiles
*Me and S are celebrating our two year anniversary today 🙂 I’m so unbelieveably happy with him, I can’t describe! I love him to pieces, and here’s to the next two years!
*Thinking about my paycheck at the end of the month – been doing loads of overtime – so kerching!!! Haha!
*Winning another blog giveaway over at Norfolk Crafts.
*Having a whole weekend off for the first time in ages – its absolute bliss!
*I am absolutely amazed at the amount of followers I’ve gained in the past few days. Obviously, I know that my giveaway is probably a reason for this, but I welcome all followers with open arms. I’m also astounded at the amount of giveaway entries I’ve received! Don’t forget to tell all your friends, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
*Being awarded the The Versatile Blogger Award by Charlotte – I love you girl!!

Frowns
*Spent a lot of yesterday evening in bed with a headache. Managed to get rid of it in the end though!
*Missing Vix’s posts while she’s out in Goa! I absolutely adore her blog, and you can find it here
*Generally getting really behind on blogging and everything. I am incredibly sorry girls, I am trying my hardest but obviously doing thirty hours overtime in a week is a bit of stretch compared to what I’m used to! I don’t ever want blogging to become a chore so I am trying to post regularly, but it won’t be everyday because I just can’t manage that at the minute, as well as keep up with the housework, maintain a relationship with S and my friends, and find time and sleep! I will still continue to try my hardest for you girls, though – and I look forward to seeing even more entries into my giveaway!

Any girls got a blog that I haven’t got round to following yet? Leave me a link in the comment section, and I’ll be sure to take a look <3

Grand National Day!

Hey girls,

How are you all?
As everyone knows, as it’s all over the tv, the internet, Facebook and blogs – it’s the Grand National today!
Who have you backed to win today at 4.15pm? My picks were Chief Dan George and Oscar Time.

My dad and boyfriend strategically pick their horses based on odds and jockeys – I just pick horses who have familiar names – and it works for me! I once did a English school report on Galvani, and my parents went to the greyhounds a few weeks later when we were on holiday. There was a dog called Galvanize and it won for me! 🙂 It has happened a few times since, so I’m hoping my luck will be in today.

I chose Chief Dan George because my cousin is called Daniel and my uncle is called George, and I chose Oscar Time for the same reason – I have a cousin with that name!

No odds for me, I just like the names!

How are your weekends going? I’ve got the whole weekend off for once, and I’m loving it! Out in the sunshine – it’s lovely- although I have a few bees stalking me as we speak! I went into town with S and my Dad earlier, put our bets on, and we went to a greasy spoon cafe. Dad had good old bangers n’ mash, S had a bacon & cheese baguette, and I had a veggie breakfast. I am not a vegetarian, but I love mushrooms, hash browns, bubble and squeak etc, so it makes more sense to get that for me 🙂

In a little while, my mate Em is coming round and we’re going to play Buzz on the PS3. I can’t wait! It’s been far too long since I’ve had a Saturday off (unless you count my birthday three months ago…which I don’t :p)

What are you planning to do for the rest of the afternoon?

For now,

Sunday Rambles.

I am so tired! I did a 9am to 7.30am shift today, done 30 hours overtime this week, doing even more this coming week and my next day off is Saturday! I am aware my blogging is suffering as a result but I am trying my hardest to get on as much as possible, so bear with me lovelies!

Smiles
*Getting twenty more followers in 24 hours, and LOADS of giveaway entries since I last logged on. Thank you so much, and don’t forget to tell everyone you know!
*Wrestlemania tonight at midnight – my boyfriend and our friend Dunk are major wrestling obsessives and I must admit I do enjoy a bit of WWE myself.. Can’t wait to watch this tonight!
*Thinking about my paycheck at the end of the month… lots of yummy overtime!
*Got the weekend off next week – YAY! Will also be mine and S’ two year anniversary 😀
*Entered over 200 competitions (not including blog giveaways) on days when I’ve been able to blog 🙂

Frowns
*I am so tired, it’s unbelievable.
*Much as I love the fact that I am going to get loads of pennies at the end of the month, the fact that my back is REALLY painful is not helping 🙁

How have your weekends been? Don’t hesitate to leave a comment below 🙂

Monday Rambles

Hey everyone,

How were your weekends? I didn’t get round to posting a ‘Sunday Rambles’  this week as I had work all weekend, however I thought I’d post it here.

Smiles

*Winning the giveaway at Serendipity Child ðŸ™‚
*A wonderful guest post by Jem at Beautiful Clutter
*Receiving my pen pal letter from Laura at A Daisy Chain Dream – yours is on its way, honey!
*Getting more followers once more.
*Getting more enquiries about penpals and guest posting.

Frowns
*Working all the hours I could this week, working even more this coming week.
*Still feeling pretty rubbish – the bug has only just gone.

Short post today, I’m doing 11-8 shifts most of the week, and a 10 till whenever shift on Sunday. Will try to post where possible – have a couple of days off, but I’m taking my Mum out for Mothers Day on one of them as I can’t go out on Sunday.

What are everyone elses plans for the week?

For now,

Homemade goodies & hopefully a new camera!

Homemade goodies & hopefully a new camera!

As I said earlier, S has been busy today making loads of yummy food! I have taken a picture of the curry (the cupcakes were all eaten before I could get a pic) however it isn’t of great quality as I’m still waiting for my new camera – I should hopefully be getting it tomorrow 🙂

This is homemade chicken curry with extra pineapple, cooked in the slow cooker. There is rice there, it’s just hiding under all the curry goodness. We cheated with shop-bought naan breads, poppadums and mango chutney – but boy, was it delicious!

I’m liking this new found love for cooking that S has – I’m definitely getting treated well out of it! What yummy treats did you have to eat over the weekend?

For now,
