A Needed Night with Friends

Girls Ruled Tonight!!

After a stressful and emotional week, it was good to end with an evening with friends, having a laugh. We played bowling and mini golf. I won bowling and C won at mini golf. All the boys lost.

I now have a whole 2 days off. I have plans tomorrow and then Dave and I have the next day off together. I’ve started to de-stress. By the end, I’ll be relaxing without thinking. Let’s hope.

What did make me laugh when we were getting ready for bed, was that Alfie has eaten a hole in Dave PJ bottoms. Not good but was funny. They’re now in the bin.

Cute and cuddle Alfie is in the dog house but boy is his a mischievious fluffy butt.

A Wedding

Today was my mates, sisters wedding. It was a gorgeous ceremony. The wedding breakfast was lovely. I was in some official photos as well which I didn’t expect but I like the idea of all the ceremony guests having a photo together.

We then had a break before the evening part. A group of us went to the hotel rooms that they’d booked. At one point myself and a friends girlfriend got stuck with a load of kids. Luckily we played games that occupied them.

I did feel sorry for the bride and groom for the evening part though. Majority of the day people had left and all friends that were invited for the evening part didn’t turn up. It ended up being 10-15 of us filling up the dance floor. Making use of the DJ.

Even so, it was fun. It tired me out but fun. I was ready for bed when I got home.

Long Overdue Catch-up

I can’t wait. In 2 days my best mate is coming to stay. We’re off to see Demi Lovato in concert.

From the sounds of it my friend, E has been having a bad time of it. Effecting her mental health. It will be good to have a proper catch-up. It’s been nearly 2 years since we last saw each other.

We write to one another regularly. E and I met in year 7; we were in the same form at school and did ICT together. Out of all our school friends, we’ve stuck around for one another.

At the right time, I want to ask her to be my maid of honour. It will be long overdue when we see each other. The eeks are bubbling.

Wedding Talk

I had a lovely girly evening with B; a takeaway and a film. Just what we needed. We talked about our weddings too.

I told her Dave and I were talking 2021 for ours. B said she’d better hurry up and decided. She’d want to get married before us. She has thought about 2020. See what D thinks to that one.

He might thank us for getting her arse into gear.

Wales: Day 7

The last full day of our trip to Wales. My last full lie in for at least a week, probably longer. We went for a walk. Keeping my daily movement up while on holiday. We watched telly, a film and had dinner together.

I even had a nap before dinner.

All the fresh air has caught up with me. We’re pretty much packed, just the last minute things tomorrow, breakfast and a tidy up before leaving by 10am.

Hopefully, there’ll be no HGV on fire this time to hold us up. We’re hoping to go to the cinema together tomorrow evening. Be nice to do something back home together before we go back to our daily life again.

This holiday I’d like to do again. With all of us, even if not at the same place. Be good to visit another part of the country.

Wales: Day 6

I still can’t get over me having lie-ins all week. There’s only once we’ve set an alarm for 8:30am. The rest I haven’t been getting up before 9:30am. To be fair, I am going to bed later but I still usually wake at 6:30am.

The first two mornings of the holiday I did see that time but I made myself go to bed again. It seems to have helped as the week has gone on. It just feels strange to me. In four days that’ll change again. I’ll be back to work.

Today has been a nice day. The weather was lovely and we went to Ruthin for the afternoon. We had a walk around the place, walked around the grounds of the castle and had a lovely lunch.

B and I had another evening watching reality telly. It’s amazing to me how many there are. Plus ITVBe has one after another some evenings.

Tomorrow is gonna be our last full day here. It’s been a great week and much needed. I’ll miss it but I’ll be happy to be back home too.

Wales: Day 5

We spent the day at the cottage. Watched telly, films and played games. It was a good day and my body needed it. I feel it’s taken its toll on my mind. A part of me right now feels I should have an anti-depressant. It has been a couple of days.

I’ve taken myself up to our room, leaving the others to carry on with their night. I haven’t had me time since before the holiday. Being day 5 it may be too many peoples for me in one go.

To be fair, that’s a good amount of days where I’ve not needed to be by myself. I’m gonna find something to watch until everyone goes to bed. Tomorrow is another day. If I feel the same I’ll have a tablet at teatime.
