Mission Caite...hangovers acceptable but not necessary

So I ended up not getting the early night I really wanted to have and get some much needed rest and sleep and I find myself being distracted by other things in the house.

Today had been my day at university instead of at work. I only have 4 lectures between now and the end of 2013. Yep, that's right just the 4 classes and 1 assignment to write.  At least I think that's the case anyway.  It's a part time course because everyone in the class works full time but who knows I might have read things wrong.  All I know is its a pain in the backside having to get to the university in rush hour traffic and then battle with people wanting car parking spaces. Every time I head to uni I always think to a 2nd Master's Degree that important??? I know I certainly don't have the energy for it especially with how busy I am at work.  Oh well...the opportunity to develop my professional capabilities and to say I have an undergraduate degree and 2 masters degrees is pretty good.

It's back to work tomorrow and it promises to be another busy day. I am looking forward to the weekend and slightly worried at the same time. I'm going out down town with the girls from work on Saturday and I know it's going to be messy. Every time I go out with this group of friends something always happens and usually to me haha. The last two occasions involved me breaking my big toe and the other other occasion I bruised my other big toe quite badly. For some reason when I'm out with them as soon as I know we are heading for food and then home my brain immediately communicates with my feet and makes me feel pain. So in my drunken state I think it's a great idea to take off my heels and walk through the streets with no shoes on. I have even gone as far as taken my shoes off out them under my arm to carry them and then be stood in the food place asking the guy serving us if anyone has handed any shoes in to them because I have lost mine...not realising that they were under my arm all the time. On the other side of this I find it hilarious and I always have a great time with my friends and I am looking forward to the night...and it's Mission Caite returning home with no broken body parts...hangovers acceptable but not necessary.  

Just have two more days of work to get through first...

The alarm went off far too soon this morning...

...I don't know why but last night I struggled to fall asleep which is weird because I was actually really tired.  So when the alarm went off this morning I just let it go off and off aaaaand off and I ignored it pretending it wasn't there because I was finally comfy and didn't want to get out of bed.  At one point I gave myself a pep talk about getting up and the end result sticking one foot out of the bed and on the floor as the rest of me lay under my duvet...that constitutes getting out of bed right? haha

I eventually managed to get my sorry backside out of bed and was very slow this morning in getting ready.  At 9:10am I was happily singing away in the car (I was teaching Katy Perry a thing or two on how to sing her latest song - Roar haha) when my boss interrupted and called me...he asked me if I was in work and I was all "ummmm no" and then he asked if I was running which I replied "ummmm noooo...I mean yessss?"...I wasn't sure I should tell him that I was actually sat at home tending to my farm.

Yup that's right my farm!! No I haven't changed professions nor have I moved back to the country but instead I have been sucked into the game on my phone that is sweeping my friends at the minute...building a farm, harvesting crops, feeding animals, making cakes, butter, you name it, I can probably make it haha.  It's starting to become an obsession!! I don't want to miss my boat orders (yeah that's right my farm is by a river that a cargo boat comes down and stops at my farm for orders)...this thing is getting so bad that I have woken up in the middle of the night before and I've checked my farm...I wish I could say I need to get out more but I have a pretty good social life obsession with my farm game continues!! haha!!

I did some work with a teenager and I have to say instead of her kicking off and going on the rampage she was actually pretty funny.  She asked me a million of questions.  The best ones were "How do you get your hair extensions looking like that?" to which I just looked at her and laughed and said "my what?" she then responded with "your hair extensions, your hair isn't real is it, no-one's hair is really that long and nice".  I couldn't help but laugh at her when I told her my hair was allllll my own and then she proceeded to inspect my scalp and my hair to look for hair extensions haha.
All my owwwwwn hair :-)
 Then she said to me "let me look at your eyes"...a bit freaked out I sat in front of her and showed her my eyes. She said to me "I can't see anything", to which I asked her "what are you looking for? a line around my eye where they cut it when I have laser eye surgery?"...."YEEEESSSSSS" was what I was greeted with haha. I had to explain to her that my eyes had healed and there were no visible signs of me having had eye surgery and that I no longer needed contact lenses or glasses...she was amazed by it haha.

Tonight I'm pretty happy that I got home from work pretty early AND I didn't bring my work laptop home tonight so I can relax with the girls.  We decided we weren't going to have a drink throughout the week until the weekend but lo and behold when I opened the fridge when I got home I saw a couple of bottles of wine and a few bottles of Sweden's finest chilling in there. Looks like the girls had plans of giving in to our plan...and of course I'll have so much willpower and resist....who am I kidding? haha.

Pamper day and a good night in :-)

Again I'm sucking at this updating thing haha.

Life is always so busy that I just don't seem to get time to update as much as I'd like.

So tonight I am having a night in with my two housemates and it's fantastic.  We are in our onesies and having a few drinks as we watch Saturday night TV.  I couldn't think of a better thing to do tonight.  I went out last night and I had a great time but tonight I'm so happy to be home on a Saturday night.  I need a nice relaxing night, which is what I'm getting...I can't say I'm completely sober because the drinks have been flowing tonight as we have relaxed but I am feeling pretty good.

Today I had a make up lesson with a make up artist from a big brand.  I am the kind of girl who feels awkward being on show when I'm having something done in public. My housemate is much more confident in the whole people seeing her on display for everyone to see as they walked in.  However  I was sat in a department store with my face having no make up on and then having a make over feeling self conscious.  I relaxed as time went on and I was really happy with the result.  My housemate and I went for one particular thing that my housemate wanted and both ended up with mini make overs. Obviously with the make overs there were a number of products that were used on us...and as we were so pleased with our make up we ended up buying the products.  So between us we basically spent almost £200 on products (there weren't too many products for that money). Crazy I know but the products did really make a huge difference and we were both really pleased with the results of our make over.  We both had pretty stressful weeks at work so we decided that a little splurge on something was OK. 

My life at work is starting to ease up a little bit thankfully because I have been crazy busy and it's been a hellish time and I have been stressed and bordering on miserable.  I have been working day and night on stuff that has needed to be done, my Manager got the brunt end of my miserable mood when he tried to make light of things and told me I don't do much work! Oh boy did he get an nasty stare and a "don't even go there" kind of look haha.

I'm really looking to update my blog and the style of my blog.  I have no idea what I want it to look like but although I don't update it very often at the minute, I have invested a lot of time into this thing. and it desperately needs a fresh look...any suggestions as to who could help me with re-vamping this thing please let me know!!

Work hard, Play Hard...

I have been awful at updating this thing recently. I don't know where the time has gone but one minute it's the summer and the next it's almost winter and soon Christmas will be upon us. The last few weeks have been absolutely crazy. I have been so busy with work that I have barely had the time for anything else. I quite literally have lived and breathed my work for the last while.

I am slowly starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and I cannot wait to reach that light because there have been times when I have thought I wasn't going to be do everything that I've needed to do. I also haven't been the greatest person. My boss tells me that even with the strained stress look on my face I always have a smile and I am always laughing so he hadn't picked up on how truly stressed out I have been. I have even had people asking me if I've spent the night at work because I have been in the office when they arrive in the morning and I'm still there long after they have left the office for the day. So in another week or two I will be a liiiiiiittle bit less busy and stressed out...thank goodness haha.

Today however I managed to get quite a lot done so I decided to take advantage of my productivity and decided to call it a day relatively early AND I didn't bring my work laptop home with me tonight so it's a work free zone tonight. So what better thing to do after finishing this blog off but to go and dance the night away with the girls. I'm just at my friends house, getting ready and having a couple of drinks and although I'm writing about work it feels great knowing I don't have to think about it tonight.

I certainly need a night off from the stresses and hassles in my life not only at work but also outside of work. My love life is as non-existent as ever hah. There was a potential but it looks like that's not happening...great guy but we are both clearly too stubborn for each other...shame really. Buuuuut onwards and upwards as the Brits say and time to get on with life and letting the less stressed, care free Caite push her way back to the surface.
