I’m currently writing this sat in a nice warm, English pub with a drink in one hand and lunch in the other. I thought I’d need a rest after forcing my way through the last minute Christmas crowds and I was right. I’ve only just spent money on myself which I wasn’t that happy about but I needed an outfit for when the boss and I go out for dinner tomorrow night…I wouldn’t want to show myself up right?! Exactly. Thank you for agreeing with me ladies, I feel much better.
I got my credit card statement through yesterday and I laughed out loud when I read it; not because of how much I’ve spent but how the statement reads. In consecutive order, my payments read eLinens (duvet set), Ann Summers (underwear/sexy toy shop) and La Senza (underwear store)…I wonder if my statement gave a guy in the bank a chuckle lol.
I don’t think Mr Officer and I will be seeing each other tonight either. He text me yesterday to say that his daughter isn’t well again but said although he didn’t know if tonight was still on, he thought he should at least let me know what was going on. So he’s learning to keep me in the loop and not just ignore me which is definitely a good thing. I know, I know, how can we really be in a relationship if I only see him once a week but let’s face it, if nothing else, he’ll fill a gap until I go away lol. Seriously though, he knows I’m not putting my life on hold for him so I think we’ve reached a level of mutual respect and trust. It feels so good!
However, I am so tired today that I can barely function. I was working on the Safe Bus last night until 3 this morning and with temperatures hitting almost zero on the bus by the time I got home it took me an hour to fall asleep because I had to warn myself up first. You know when your skin is so cold that when it touches something warm it stings? Imagine me like that but all over 🙁 It was an eventful night to say the least but I’m glad that I haven’t got anymore volunteering to do for the rest of the year.
What are you all up to in the run up to Christmas? Aside from running around like headless chickens that is?!
