London Town

The Scotsman and I are on the night bus to London tonight for 4 days of being tourists,escaping Glasgow greyness and general debauchery and decadence.

Oh,and yeah,the first step of our visa process.EEK! All going well,hopefully this time next year I will be married and living a lovely hippie-punk life in Kiama.

Anyways,being the geeks that we are,we are hitting the Natural History Museum,Emirates Stadium for him (I must clarify I am not an Arsenal fan - the EPL bores me if I'm honest),hopefully some sun in Hyde Park and just being happily lost tourists eating our way through the delights we can't get in the culinary abyss that is Glasgow.

If there's any hidden gems that we must absolutely see please drop me a line.Link
Oh,And I am off to track down the new Grace Kelly 'To Catch a Thief' barbie.I've developed a habit of collecting fierce bitches in plastic form (and yes,she was a princess and oh so elegant but to me,Grace Kelly is still a fierce beeatch - and that is meant in the most complimentary way.)

Hola! And a lil' frangipani obsession.......

Firstly I have to say CONGRATULATIONS to the fabulous and gorgeous Linzerello on her engagement and her fantastic loss so far.

Well,after a long absence due to total shame and embarrassment of falling of the wagon for yet the millionth time I am back and will keep climbing this here damn weight loss mountain till I win!

Yes,I'm an Aries.Too stubborn and determined for my own good sometimes.

And thank you Miss Margarita for kicking my ample ass into gear

And,I think I may have found my (registry) wedding dress........and it's got frangipanis on it!!!!!! FRANGIPANIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is totally epic in my world.Oh yeah,I blogged about it before,didn't I? Well that's the kind of delirium that a lack of frangipani's and hibiscus for 7 years has done to me.

Anyways,enough floral talk.

Well,the budget cuts have come into effect at work and it's probably been for the best.Yeah my wallet has shrunk from a 'beer wallet (as in 'champagne taste,beer wallet') to a buckfast wallet.Don't know about the Scottish delight that is buckfast? Check this................

However I am less psychotically stressed out and seeing the lovely Scotsman on a regular basis.And I have my Sundays back after 13 years which may be slightly,but only just,more epic than frangipani wedding dresses.

The Scotsman and I have a whole week off together starting Saturday afternoon at 5pm and we are hitting London town.Not much relaxation for us though,it's all in the name of his Aussie visa.Recently I feel my life has been consisting of sleep,work,visa stuff,sleep,work,visa stuff,sleep,work visa stuff..............

Fingers crossed it will all be worth it in the end.We dream of a hippy punk lifestyle.Veggie patch in the garden,morning walks on the Kiama beach with a Harlequin great dane,sunshine and Linkfrangipanis in the air,me cooking and baking for all my loved ones and him doing all the cleaning ;P And maybe a wee baby frangipani one day............................

I was going to go back to the gym today but apparently there's a small chance of an apocalypse tomorrow and we could all..............well,you know...............die.

Should the Apocalypse not eventuate I shall resume tomorrow with the wedding dress plan of action (i.e. re-start 2,089,756).

In the meantime,check this out for major food envy........
365 days of breakfasts Seriously making me re-contemplate my breakfasts or lack thereof.

Blogging will resume after the Rapture.........or not.

I have just discovered where I can buy a frangipani print - pin up - wiggle dress,featured on the cover of Vintage Life magazine.

This has been motivation enough for me to go for a long walk and eat a salad for dinner.

Total FAIL!

Sorry I've been away so long and dropped off the blogosphere.

I've been in a self imposed exile as I was so ashamed of being a total FAIL on the weight loss front.I have so much to tell you all and lot's of photos to share on what you are about o read but I've lost my camera USB.Promise they will come soon once I haul my ass to Boots to put them on a CD.

So much has happened since my last post on stress..........

I turned 31.

My awesome wee sister whisked me away to Barcelona for 3 days as a birthday surprise where much stalking of Messi,Iniesta and Villa ensued..........as well as much inebriation and gluttony.

The cuts have come into work and I think I will be able to get by on what I've got.

The Scotsman and I now have every Saturday night and Sunday off together.

I'm feeling so much happier and stressing far less,though I'm probably a stone heavier :( FAIL!

I.GOT.PROPERLY.ENGAGED!!!!!!! The ring hasn't left my finger since.
