Caite's got a "sports related injury" today! haha

Oh what a night!!

Last night I went out with the girls and I had so much fun.  I did however end the night with that I think may be a broken toe! I'm not sure if I have actually broken it but underneath the toenail of my big toe it is completely black, and it is very sore.  At the minute it feels like someone is squeezing my big toe or has strapped a rock to it because it feels so heavy.  How did I do this?  Your guess is as good as mine!!  I have absolutely no idea how I managed to hurt my toe.  It was only when I got home that my friend saw my toe and asked what I'd done. At the end of the night I did walk out of the bar and through the street with no shoes on because my feet were hurting.  So the only logical explanations I can think of are that I stubbed my toe really hard on something orrrrr someone stood on my toe, either way it is very sore hahaha.

I had such a good time though and my "sports injury" as I keep calling it haha is worth it.  I think it was always going to be somewhat of a messy night when we started drinking in the apartment before we went out.  I did a smoking jagermeister or smoking jager bomb last night too...I do not like jager at all and I can't believe I actually drank it, it's always a little bit weird when you see the thing you're supposed to be drinking with smoke coming out of the glass haha.  There were bar staff walking around selling test tube shots as well in one of the bars and again, it was one of those nights where it seemed to be a good idea to drink those as well.

My Mum is a Nurse and so I called her today and told her about my toe.  With my Mum one of two things are likely to happen when I tell her stuff like this.  I get absolutely no sympathy (and quite rightly so haha) or she turns into Nurse mode and asks me if I've been to hospital to have it looked at. Today I got a mixture of, "Caite you shouldn't drink so much to not know how you've hurt yourself.  Have you been to the hospital to have it checked out? Is it sticking out the wrong way???".  Needless to say I am a trooper and I will survive this sports injury haha.

I'm back home now and I am absolutely freezing cold even though it's warm outside! When I told my Mum how cold I was with a long sleeved top on and a big jumper she just sighed at me and told me it was because I had drunk so much alcohol my blood was probably really thin and that I only had myself to blame haha.

As usual there were photos taken on our night out and my blog post wouldn't be complete without a few pictures of the night...I'll spare you from seeing the bruised toe though haha.









I thought I would be feeling worse than I do at the minute and that I would have a really bad hangover but I actually don't (my body is lulling me into a false sense of security isn't it? haha).  I think it's just tiredness at the minute because we hired an apartment for the night and I ended up sharing a room with one of the girls and I never sleep well when I'm sharing a room with friends.  I think it's because I get self conscious even though these girls are my best friends haha.  Even though I'm not feeling too bad I don't think I'll be doing anything crazy today haha.  It's probably going to be a day at home and not much else...but then again, Sunday is the day of rest right?

Been a busy couple of weeks....

I have been neglecting my blog again, I can't believe it's been 16 days since I last updated it.

Things have been pretty busy and I have been enjoying life with no contacts and no glasses.  The first event I went to glasses and contact lenses free was the Beyonce concert a couple of weeks ago.

Oh my goodness...Beyonce was amazing. I had such a great time with the girls at the concert, we went for pre-concert cocktails and then some great Italian food and then a few more drinks before heading into the arena.  Beyonce looked fantastic and sounded even better.  We had such a good time and then had a few more drinks after the concert.  Lets just saw there were a few sore heads the next morning when we woke up in our hotel room...the breakfast in the pub with the resident alcoholics was good fun and definitely did the trick to help any hangovers.

Last weekend was a great time too.  We had a little get together and had a few drinks and then headed out to the bar  I haven't had a big night out or get together for a long time and it was so nice to be out and about with my friends.




















And then it got messy haha:











Work is busy but going well at the minute and takes a fair bit of my time.  There are a couple of things happening at work which cause me stress and worry.  I find myself talking about one case all the time because I have so many issues with it and anxious to do the right thing for the children involved.  It's one of those cases which tugs on the heart strings and is one that definitely has the potential to make me cry and causes me worry...but I just have to keep going and working to the best of my ability and in the best interests of the children I work with.

I'm really looking forward to this upcoming weekend  It's another night out with the girls, a work night out and a girlie night.  It seems like it's been forever since we went out together and we have a birthday coming up so we decided it was the perfect reason to go out and have a good time.  It's also a long weekend next weekend so I'm looking forward to the weekend for sure.

Loving this song right now...I never get bored of hearing this playing in the car...

It's been a while....

It's been a while since I wrote a blog...two weeks in fact.  I can't believe where the time has gone for it to have been two weeks.

I guess enjoying the idea that my eyes are now better than 20/20 vision and that the life of my eyes has never been so good.  Work has been so busy too, it's a good busy.  I went away for the night earlier this week.  I was in Scotland for work which meant having to stay over in a hotel .  While it was nice to have a hotel room to myself and all the things I needed on expenses from work I thought I would find it quite a lonely experience.  I mean after the first hour or so of singing to myself or laughing along to the radio it kind of sunk in I have the next 24 hours by myself.  Not the worst thing but when you have no clue where things are and how or where to get dinner from I wasn't exactly thrilled about it all.  I have to say it wasn't as bad as I thought.  I was able to enjoy a nice relaxing evening.  The hotel was just a chain hotel and didn't offer room service or anything like that and I am not someone who likes to eat in restaurants by myself.  So I ended up getting in the car and finding the nearest drive thru and got myself some Burger King haha.  I haven't had anything like that in forever and I don't usually eat that stuff anymore but I have to say it tasted really good.  I had a Chicken Royale with cheese and some onion rings and I demolished them.

I made it back from Scotland and I realised half way back home that I had left my phone in the hotel I had been staying in and it took two days for it to be sent back to me...this is going to sound kinda bad but it felt like I'd lost a part of me without my phone. It's quite sad to think the loss of a piece of technology for a couple of days could have such an effect on someone.

So now it's the weekend and its a long weekend here so WOOOOOP no work on Monday.
Last night I had a few drinks at home with the girls and relaxed after a hectic week. The few drinks turned into a late night ...when doesn't it turn into a late night these days hahaha. Today I've had a good day too. My house mate and I took our dogs out to the country side and did a little hiking.  The weather was really quite nice and warm today (today's one day of sun will probably be the start AND finish of the British summer haha) . We were able to have a little picnic out in the country too which was nice. It felt pretty good to be able to get out and enjoy the fresh air and to let King Zeb and Coco run free for a while.   Tonight I have had a nice quiet evening at home and I'm currently sat in bed listening to music and relaxing.  In the past on long weekends I would probably have been partying and having drinks in town but this weekend I am more than happy to be having a 'quiet one'.  My batteries are in need of a recharge...AND...I have a fun little road trip next week when I go to see Beyonce in concert. I can't believe how quick that has come round, it only seems two minutes since me and my friends were trying to get tickets.

This is currently my favourite song. I hear it a lot on the radio when I'm in the car and I just love it. I'm a massive fan of Pink anyway but this song is pretty great...
