Feeling Like a Spy...

I've got a part time job, kinda, working as a mystery shopper :-)

Naturally, I can't tell you much about my 'assignments', but I did one yesterday, which was fun!

I wandered around, checked out the different departments, and made a purchase (for which I get reimbursed! Free stuff!!!)

I totally felt covert, but also, really self conscious! Like, 'How do I normally behave??'  'Are people looking at me?' 'How do you talk to staff?'

Then I had to write a long report on my experience and stuff, that was the boring bit, but I was worrying I'd forget important details...

Fun, I hope to do it again, little bit of cash is never a bad thing.

One Chilly Morning...

I woke up this morning to a definite chill in the air, the kind you can feel while still wrapped up in blankets in bed, and makes you hope you never need to leave the slight warmth they are providing.  I hate that chill, for one thing it makes mornings ever so slightly worse than usual, but it is also a signal that the weather is changing for winter :-(

I don't hate winter in general, I like the idea of roaring fires, and cute jumpers and hot chocolate, but the fact that the weather is cold enough that these things are essential, makes me sad.  I'm just a warm weather person, loving beaches, and sunny festivals and wearing skirts and vest tops and sandals.  I like being HOT.

But, there is no escaping it.  So, preparing to layer up, turn the heating on in the next couple of months and dealing with the British winter, again.  I just thank God that this year, we're in a house with a working timer on the central heating- last year it was manual and the on button was down stairs :-(

Have you felt the chill yet?

Had my first Zumba lesson this eve, with the wonderful Ruth and her Mum.

It was so much fun, I've always loved dancing and I did feel like I was getting a good work out!

I had to take it kinda easy, as I haven't done any kind of exercise in aaagggeeeeess! Unless you count walking round shops- which does burn the calories, but isnt really hard core:-)

Totally going again next week, it was brill!!

Pudding Date

Settling in to our new town, finally working out some ways to try and live cheaply, Hubby and I went on a pudding date this evening, to Cafe Rouge.

The idea is that we eat at home then head to a restaurant to have pudding, thereby enjoying the excitement of going out in the evening with out forking out a ton of money for the pleasure- we do worry about becoming hermits sometimes.

However, Hubby enjoyed a large glass of wine with his pudding, so the bill came to roughly the same as a meal out in a cheaper restaurant, heyho :-)

Perhaps we're finally get used to being poor once we've started bringing home some money?  You never do know...

A late nights randomness

I'm up late, not quite feeling ready for bed yet, though the I know I will be shortly.

I'm feeling rough, nothing major, but a sore throat all day and a constantly runny nose.

And I've had one of those days where I have really only eaten one thing, Peanut butter and bread, with the odd chocolate too.

I always find those days odd, like, there is really nothing else I want to eat, so, why not just eat what I want.  I do worry about them though, really haven't had my 5-a-day, or any substantial food.  But, I'm full, and I hear peanut butter is actually good for you. 

Never mind, hey, tomorrow I'll be a model balanced diet citizen.

The new advert for lable maker asks a bunch of people to lable themselves, mine would be: Unfinished.

Not knowing where my life is taking me, sifting through the options of next steps and plans leaves me feeling like I'm still building to something.  I'm just not done yet.

Any ideas for your lables?

Crafty Insperation

So,  the job hunt continues after an unsuccessful interview for a TA job yesterday.  I handed in my CV to Newlook today, which I'm hopeful for, be nice to have a low pressure job, plus I'd get discount.

So, in the mean time, I persevere with craft, as it is one thing that certainly makes me happy and not feel like I'm waisting my time.

And here is some inspiration, I think it is full of great ideas! Glad I found it on Pinterest.  I find pinterest so funny, having an obsessive personality, and loads of time on my hands, I have had to set my self a limit of time that I'm aloud on it for: Max two sessions a day, 30 min a piece.  Self control, its nice to meet you.

I go through peeks and troughs of creativity, and I'm always on the look out for something like this, to give me a push and some inspiration to get back in to a creative mindset. So, i guess I must get on with doing some of the things on this list.

British Heart Foundation

I've started volunteering in the local BHF charity shop to keep my self busy for the last 3 weeks.  I've only done 3 hours a week, but it's been fun. 

I do stock stuff mostly, which means that I get to see all the new stock and put aside items I fancy before they even get on the shop floor- sweet!!

I hope I get to keep doing this for a while, we'll have to see if I can fit it around work when I finally get some =)
