Lazy me!


Its been too long... but everything seem to get to me. I m not keeping well with my New Year's Resolutions...
I haven't been looking for new job... I had a great offer. Great pay, better working hours... for a company that does the internet conferences and meetings, use of my linguistic skills too. But it then we would have to move to Gloucster... Great opportunity but timing all wrong.

Hubby got a promotion! Now he's a sous chef. To be honest with you, it is about time...  :) I am very proud of him.

I shall be more chatty, promise!

been a long time

Well I'm afraid I have been bit preoccupied with my work...

Absolutely terrible things night shifts do to your body. I have not been able to sleep normally (on a normal day I go to sleep at about 11.30 or midnight and wake up around 8.30) I have been struggling to wake up every single day, ended up sleeping till 11 or midday. Terrible! I am definitely more productive in the mornings.

However I did learn one or 2 new things...

2 out of my long night shifts I had company 2 gentlemen, Stuart from Scotland and Jonny from Holland but who lives now in Belgium. They drunk the whole bottle of Mongan's Spiced rum. Well from Jonny I found out that everyone should go to Amsterdam on Queen's Day 30th April.

And Stuart is missing his wife greatly. She got ill and died with in 3 month. Incredibly sad! When he was talking about her, all I wanted is to call my family and tell them how much I love them.

Well on top of everything I have a cold or a flu... feel terribly poor. Lucky to have such a fantastic hubby who is waiting on me!! He has been making some amazing baked mushrooms, pics and recipe to follow in next few posts!

I cannot wait to feel better. Only 6 weeks until my 1st 10K this year

goon and the lady

I enjoy films and going to the cinema as often as I can. That is why about a year and a half ago I got my self cineworld unlimited card and I never looked back! (information about this card can be found here)

Lately I went to see The Lady with the girls... No dry eyes here! Such an inspiring story! I do hope that things in Burma will improve

With hubby we went to see something silly and very funny. But yet, Goon was very inspiring at the same time. It tell you that there is space in the world for everyone ... even for a "nice guy. dumb as a puck"

keeping up with resolutions

Well I finally made it to the gym today:) Yay! But was later then usual, very unimpressed with myself, also due to some item of kit malfunctioning couldn't stay on the trade mill for too long... Better planning for the future. And shall set the alarm and not relay on my dear hubby to wake me up.

Also it went very well with "cook more" resolution. Made lovely pancakes last night :) didn't eat any....

Big plans for tomorrow: hoping to go running if the weather holds up. And make a big post about that flap-jack cereal bar... but for now must start getting ready for work.
