A snapshot #5

001: Countdown begins! How scary is it that December has arrived already? I am not usually that much of a fan of Christmas having worked in hospitality since I was 15 for five years and in retail for the past five years. The festive period just means work to me. But this will the first christmas in five years that I will be spending the whole day with the boy so I can forget about working at 6am on Boxing day.

002: London Town. Back working in the city again this week. Oh how glad I am to be back! I am really enjoying it, loving being back writing again! Liverpool Street is a right touch too as I am there within 30 mins, much better than the hour journey to my last job!

003: 20 inch pizza anyone? Nomnomnom. My friend is now the proud owner of a two bedroom flat with a mortgage and everything! Slightly scary but as what was expected we all piled round there and ordered lots of pizza (two 20 inchers for £18. SCORE!) and got very merry on lots of wine! Perfect night in! I must also mention my very beautiful friend Jay who I spent the evening with, she was moaning that I don't mention her on my blog. Love you!

004: I have had a very lucky week this week. I first of all won Clothes Show tickets from Orly. Admittedly I didn't realise it was in Birmingham but I have managed to persuade my nan to come along! Secondly I came third in Style Eyes Ethical Fashion Competition with this outfit! I was very lucky to win a pair of simple canvas shoes, thank you so much Ceri! Lets hope my lucky streak continues eh?
