It’s the weekend! Get yer blather on
Morning ladies.. Anyone have any nice plans for the weekend?
Morning all! How are you Polkadotty? I have no nice plans, just housework, exercising, job hunting and interview prep. I am home alone as my fella is away!
Shygirl you’ve just described my weekend plans too except the job hunting as my mobile internet isn’t that great… still waiting for eircom tech to call…..
Where is everyone?
@Orla hope the bf got back all right
@Evie have a fantastic time today, take your time & pamper yourself
Have a great weekend beauts xox
Dinner and night out is cancelled…gutted. After doing a review of our finances things are going to be very tight for the rest of the month and we just can’t afford to go out. We’re still offloading the small fella on the inlaws for the night cause we need a break, even if we can’t afford to go out, at least we’ll have some time alone. Hope everyone else has a nice weekend.
EvieM sorry to hear night out is cancelled, but a night on the couch with a movie will be nice too
Yep Andrea he got back grand now, hes been dragging me around a model shop all morning so I’ve just managed to get my own back by dragging him round some second hand shops in search of tea cups… and I’m happy because I picked up 5 lovely ones with saucers for £5!! Off home for some lunch now
@Orla, sounds like a bargain!
@EvieM, a nice takeaway with a lovely bottle of wine? With a good movie, and it can still be a lovely night.
Doing a bit of DIY with my dad in the kitchen (cutting a piece of furniture in two, to be precise), then going to this opera tonight. After viewing two trailers I’m pretty sure leaving after the 2nd act won’t be too difficult. Note to self: if I don’t buy tickets in the first place because I don’t like the show, buying the bestie’s tickets because he’s away isn’t a good idea.
At least, I’ll use this to pretend I’m all cultured and cosmopolitan (in French slang that would be Bobo…) and impress my colleagues with my exotic weekend activities.
The weather is gorgeous here by the way, hope it’s the same for you. Have a nice weekend.
Hey everyone! Have a lovely anniversary dinner tonight, going to get my hair done now in honour of the occasion!
EvieM – ooops didn’t mean to be insensitive *morto*
Now that Aisling mentions it…complaining about ‘having to go out to the opera’ is pretty rude too. Sorry…. *hangs head in shame*
Hugs Evie M. If its any consolation I can also afford to go nowhere. I have had 2 nights out in 6 months. Its hard having no money. I am dependent on my fella financially, and its the little things I miss. I just had a coffee in town as a little treat, whereas this time last year I would of thought nothing of it. I am not a material person, but I do miss being able to but clothes, etc.
EvieM & Shygirl welcome to my boat. Sister gave me her clubcard & vouchers so I can get InStyle as a treat. Best Beauty Buys issue. Will spend the day looking at all the stuff I cant afford. Was in Boots and saw that 17 have a offer, buy a mascara and get a free eyeliner. The eyeliner has three points on it like Too Faced 3-Way Lash Lining Tool.
If it wasn’t for this place I would crack up! You guys keep me sane. I hardly ever get instyle even though I love it. It does have good freebies like mascaras and hand creams.
Ladies I don’t know how ye do it.. I’m extremely lucky to have full time work and I find I still struggle at times.. Hope ye both get snapped up ASAP!
Thanks Polkadotty. I’ve applied for jobs that I don’t even want to do, because you have to apply for just everything.
@shygirl, EvieM and Gossiipgal, sending positive vibes and hugs your way. I really hope you’ll be able to find something soon. I know it’s a difficult situation and wish all three of you all the best.
Thanks very much the frog. Onwards and upwards!
@Hatfield I’m in a similar situation myself.I didn’t think anything about buying a cup of coffee and a treat when out, same goes for magazines. I would just throw 1 or 2 into the trolley. Now I skip the hot drinks due the price of 1 out versus the price it would cost me to make one at home. It’s hard but sometimes reminding yourself that you are not the only one that this happens to and that it will get better for all of us soon, helps. Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Recorded to be all domestic goddess-ey and try my hand at making bread. It turned out nice for a first attempt
Evening ladies, only hoping in, have a great night ashling
I’m sat on the couch painting my nails enjoying me time, have dinner with the boys family tomorrow and his mother is defo related to Hitler so not too keen about it to be honest..
Evie that’s a shit buzz hope time for two at home is lovely though xxx
Me and a friend had a good chat today about how we both worked our stars off in college and are not reaping the rewards as such, just have to keep on trucking as they say and it really is the little things that keep ya going through these shitty times, chins up ladies, yee are all fab and it will get better xxx
The Frog Thanks for the vibes. Only thing keeping me sane is my volunteer ‘job’. I work (full time) in an office for a charity. Have applied for a paid job which is more or less the same as what I’m doing but haven’t a hope in hell of getting it as there are so many going for it.
EvieM don’t worry about not being able to go out tonight. Just the fact you & the hubby have the house to yourselves & can have a couple of hours to lay on in the morning is nice. I do feel bad for you that you aren’t out but I understand.
Due to my health I’v been unable to go out in the last 2 years as most of my time is spent in hospital or at home in bed. However, when I do get to go out for e.g to the cinema I’m so happy You wouldn’t believe I was originally a girl that would dance 24/7 if possible & had never been ill. Now I just hope im in each day. However although I’m a late poster, I just want to say thank you as you girls have kept me going mentally through this.
