:) So today is a good day. I get paid my first 'grown up' pay cheque tomorrow. First time I've been paid monthly, also I'm earning a fair bit more than I was through the agency so I was very squeaky when I found out that I have lots of pennies to play with for the first time in a loooooooooooong ass time.

Money will be sensibly set aside for rent/bills and I will buy a monthly bus pass and put some in my savings account to make up for the all the dipping I've been doing. The rest is for FUN TIMES. Maelstrom is soon so there's money for that. Also I want to take my boy out for dinner. And I will treat Annie when she comes up next weekend. Woot. =D

This Bank Holiday weekend we're off to my parents to see my little brother before he moves all the way down south and then Monday that is extra and off will be for pjs and sleeping (unless the Other Half comes up with something clever to do)

Following weekend is Annie visiting and there will be lunch and shopping and then who knows. :)

Also... just to make this day mega awesome? Vampire Diaries season 2 is finally on the Virgin On Demand :D So it is vampire three-way angst on The Big TV for me. =D Oh Damon, you break my heart. Nom.

Also Also Also... Tattoo plotting is going very well. Am at the stage where I'm looking for the right artist as my idea is a little more concrete and easier to describe.

^-^

I woke up this morning, begrudging the early morning but really grateful for Waz's back to snuggle into and doze snuggled for half an hour before hauling myself out for a shower and work.

I went to work not stressed and contented for sleep and those cuddles.

I spent the day at work busy and under-pressure but laughing all the while.

I met up with Heather, my boss from Guide Dogs and we went back to hers and there was tea and catch up. Then she decided she would take me for dinner at a local restaurant - one of her favourites.

I ate amazing Italian food (mmm garlic, something I don't get to eat much because it gives Waz migraines, freak that he is) with great company and once again was amazed by the friendship slowly growing between us. She is a lady who makes me smile.

I caught up on all the gossip, felt loved for all the messages she brought with now ex-colleagues and generally felt at ease with her and myself.

I came home to my boy-man and tidied up a little, got into my pjs and soon there will be sleep times.

I slept well, did a solid days work, was spoilt rotten, have a full belly and now will have pre-sleep cuddles with the love of my life.

I am a lucky girl indeed today and not afraid to share it. It's nice to write positive things.

Holy shit I got my tax rebate and it was £400.00 so my pay cheque this week was the healthiest it's ever been =D. YAY. So being unemployed is less scary for a month or two. £200.00 straight in my savings account towards Wedding Fund. Bills/rent money set aside and some left over so I'm going to be really careful and make sure I don't spend it on stupid stuffs. Or anything at all really XD. My wage next Friday will also go straight in the bills/rent pot and then we'll go from there.

It means I can buy some crafty stuffs to keep me busy though. :) YAY.

Also yesterday Heather took me (courtesy of Graham) for an amazingly tasty lunch. Nom nom. Salvos - by far one of the best restaurants in Leeds. Today is booze-a-ma-hols for last day at work and next week is looking fun. Am going to enjoy my weekend and my time off and Maelstrom and try and keep my head up.

On an unrelated note - here are 100 facts about me which.. frankly are probably quite boring for you to read but certainly killed some time at work this morning!
100 things about meeeee )

So yesterday was pretty much the best day ever? Or at least the best I've had in a while ^-^ Waz and I trekked to Hull wherein there was aquarium happiness. There were all sorts of gorgeous sea creatures and randomness and omg little poison arrow frogs in the most breath taking shade of blue ever and jellyfish and so much giddy inducing pretty. Maybe I should have gone into marine-related research I'm sure I'd be happy. Oh hindsight you are a shitter.

After that we stopped on the way back for a quick coffee because oh MAN was it raining. Raining sideways. So we got soaked on the short walk back to the car. Then also on the way home the boy decided that lunch out would be nice so we did that. We stopped in one of out local pubs for a quick and relaxed bite and then came home for a few hours. Waz, bless him, took a nap and I snuggled him a bit while he snored and then started fussing with what to wear.

A short shower, left over cold pizza from the night before and dolling up later we head round the corner to Caroline and Leon's for pre-Wendy House boozing wherein I was surprised (totally surprised) with presents and birthday cake! Yay. I felt very spoilt and loved. Helen got me a rather lovely porcelain doll - she's all grown up and appeals to my tragic inner goth with her bride-in-black ensemble. She even has delicate little thin wooden wings. And she's a red-head so she appeals all round. Ann, who is a fantastic gift giver, made me a gorgeous purple and pearl dragon fly hair clip and a little half-apron with cherry appliques. I'm not sure if she made the pinny or not I forgot to ask but I think she did and it's beautiful. Plus Caz got me cake and bought me birthday drinks so I was truly spoilt all round.

I've never really been so spoilt before! I didn't organise anything party-wise this year so it was really nice to be made a fuss of, especially after the lame news on Thursday.

^-^ Yay. And now I think I shall go to T'Shop  and invest in baking materials so I can pretend to be a domestic goddess in my sexy new apron.
