Exciting Times… Covered in Snow

Its snowing in North East England in November- IN NOVEMBER.  This is bloody ridiculous.  It is far too early to be this cold.  I am beyond freezing.  Yesterday morning i woke up to a thin layer of snow, there was a little bit more lying last night and we took our bichon frise puppy, Daisy May, out in the snow for the first time…

Then last night I went to bed thinking all was right with the world and id wake up today to a snow free city but instead, i woke up to this:

I’d like to say that the snow melted through the day but unfortunately this hasn’t been the case and we’re now stuck with loads more snow and the roads have iced up.  It looks gorgeous for a winters day but its only November and I did have an interview for a job today so this really wasn’t the best weather to be walking around in a suit in!  Michael and I are having a duvet day tomorrow as we’ve gone food shopping today and stocked up on the kitchen essentials and some goodies to munch on.  So we’re going to watch a few films with some nibbles and the heating on!

These are exciting times for little ol’ me….

I went for a job this morning at a very well known company and I got the job!! I was so nervous as everyone else who was being interviewed was so much older than me and the interview process took what seemed like forever.  I was there from 8am until 2pm but it was all worth it in the end and great to see a company who really takes pride in choosing their employees and properly screens them, rather than just employing any Tom, Dick or Harry like some places do.  I couldn’t keep the smile from my face when I walked out of the building.  Ive really wanted to work for them for a long time, its a great job with lots of opportunity to progress and they’re a fab company to work for.  I don’t start until January so at least it means ill have Christmas off work… even if that means not having many pennies to spend.  I literally jumped at the chance of the new job but when I came back down to earth I realised id made a little mistake…

Its Michael’s birthday in February and since he’ll be 25 I wanted to take him on holiday so I’ve been putting a little aside every month to take him away for a week to celebrate his birthday.  In 2011, we’re not planning on going away until winter time at the end of the year so I knew that he would not be expecting a holiday in February.  The idea was that I would tell him id booked a local restaurant for his birthday, then tell him that they had cancelled and that instead I had booked him a table at El Molino Blanco (very snazzy restaurant in Tenerife that Michael LOVES) instead so he would be like EH? BUT THAT’S IN TENERIFE!  Gosh I’m giving away all my secrets here!  So yeah, anyway, that idea went down the pan when I realised I would be away when the training for the job was taking place and as such I wouldn’t be able to do both.  As the job is going to be a great benefit to us in the long run, I called the travel agent to see if there was anything I could do about the holiday.  There was, if i paid a little extra.  Needless to say we are no longer going on holiday in February but in less than TWO WEEKS TIME. Oh em gee am I excited or what?!?!  I think my dad is going to enjoy having the house to himself while we’re away as well!  Ive still surprised Michael with the holiday— I wrote it in our wall calendar and casually asked him to check the dates of something for me.  He’s over the moon.

After the year I’ve had, I’m hoping today is the start of things to come!!

I hope everything is going well with all of you.  Ive got lots of posts in the pipeline- rates and slates that kind of thing, including a great dupe for YSL Touche Eclat- i never thought id see the day.

Oh and ive noticed that ive got a couple of new followers since I last posted- THANK YOU so much.  It really means a lot to me that you would take the time to read my blog.  Please tell me if there are any posts you’d like to see more or less of.  I dont want to end up boring you all to tears…!

What have you been up to? Tell me your news =]
