Blog Interview!

For anyone who would like to read it, my blog interview is now up on Rachel's blog: Life of a Sweetaholic :)

Happy Reading! xxx

Weekly Ins and Outs / Project 365

As I have been a bit slow writing this up, it will be an overview of the past two weeks!

- Tuesday 14th was of course Valentines Day...Liam and I don't really do anything that special on this day, although it was our 2 years and 9 months and Tuesday is generally our takeaway / meal out day! :) 
I was a nice girlfriend and bought him a Spurs training shirt and the new Final Fantasy game (which I didn't give him until after the meal otherwise we wouldn't have got to go out I'm sure!!)..hence no longer getting any attention off him anymore haha. He was lovely and bought me a me 2 u bear, Professor Layton game and a gorgeous card. I don't know about any of you but I LOVE cards and almost cried with how cute it was and what was written inside.Later on we went out for a curry which was lovely....being obsessed with hearts and seeing heart balloons everywhere made my day! 

- Part of my new year resolutions are to try to clear some of my clutter and get a bit of money saved up...I managed to sell about 20 items on ebay which wasn't bad and is a little dent into my overdraft. - I will be listing more on Wednesday so keep an eye out! 

- At the weekend (18th) Liam and I went home for his parents 25th wedding anniversary. We all got dressed up and celebrated as a big family which was lovely! I had steak and chips...didn't get a photo of the food but was so yummy!

- I am trying to get better at making good food, and although I can't say I properly 'made' this, Liam has really got me into fajitas. So simple and easy to do, but so on Monday, we used a fajita kit....soo good!

- Tuesday was of course Pancake Day! One of my favourite days of the year. I like my pancakes simple...lemon and sugar and had great fun making them with the housemates :)

- At the weekend I went parents and I went to watch my brother play hockey in Birmingham and then in the evening I caught up with a couple of friends at home who I hadn't seen in ages. We had such a fun night, loads of giggles and ended up going out into town just the three of us. What was better, was that work was paying me holiday for that weekend - love getting paid for not being there!

My brothers personalised hockey socks! Haha :)

 - Valentines Day was going so well, until I broke the blind in Liam's room..oops. It kinda just decided to not move properly and now doesn't close. That is almost why I waited until after the meal to give Liam his new Xbox game, to try to make up for the blind!!

- Got some guy on Ebay telling me he has paid for two items when I have only received one Paypal payment as he has just pressed that he has sent payment for the other...what's more annoying, he's Spanish and speaks very little English so it is so hard to try to explain that I need him to pay for the other...arghhh.

- When I went home and had a lovely meal with Liam's family, the next morning I went to move my car onto their drive after his brother and sister-in law had gone home, and my handbrake decided to break. Liam and his dad had just joked to make sure I didn't scratch his dad's new Jag, so when I rung in a frantic panic and just screamed "Come outside" as I didn't know what to do, they thought I had actually bumped into it! Thankfully, it is now all fixed and I can park all fine.

- Whilst my car was at home for the week getting its handbrake fixed, the garage also decided to look at another problem...It has started leaking water into the drivers footwell and behind the seat...after looking on google it seems to be quite a common problem with 54 / 05 plate corsa's! :( Bad times.

Hope you've all had a good couple of weeks! xx

Big Sorry!

Hi everyone, So I know it has been a while since I last posted as I haven't really done much recently and kind of didn't know what to write. Therefore I haven't kept to the Project 365's...oops! But I have now decided to do a 'Weekly In's and Out's' using photos that would have been from my Project 365. These will be posted on a Sunday (as much as possible!) starting tomorrow!

I have quite a bit to catch up on, including a blog giveaway for my blog's birthday earlier on in the month! Have been saving up the pennies to buy you all some goodies to giveaway! More details tomorrow! :)

Am back home for the evening tonight, looking forward to meeting up with some friends and then back to Manchester tomorrow!

Gina xoxo

Valentines Quote x

Yesterday (Valentines Day) I was on Facebook and saw this story...Even though being sad, it really made me think..this is exactly what true love is! So lovely!

“So today I was in Hallmark buying my mom a Happy Birthday card when I noticed this old man standing in front of the Valentines card section contemplating which one to get. I decide to go over and I ask him “Are you getting a Valentine’s Day for your wife?” in which he replies “No my wife died 3 years ago from breast cancer but I still buy her roses and a card and bring them to her grave to prove to her that she was the only one that will ever have my heart”

Quote of the Week!

Happy Valentines Day!

I know lots of people don't celebrate it but Liam and I do..we don't go all out but like to get a card for one another and perhaps go out for a can see my discussion about it last year here! This is one of my favourite days of the year...just because of how much I am obsessed with hearts so it is perfect for me!!

I have just got back from work and am waiting for Liam to get back from uni to exchange presents and then go for a hungry! 

Hope whatever everyone is doing, single or in a relationship, that they have a lovely day and night! xxx

Project 365 - #008, #009, #010. #011, #012, #013

Soo, I am a very bad blogger and am slacking somewhat in the Project 365!! However, I have still taken a photo every day and have decided to do a weekly project 365 showing the 7 photos from that week...almost like a weekly in's and outs!

So, for the past almost week..

#008 - Thursday 2nd February - all I did was work! (sorry for the photo not being my own!)

#009 - Friday 3rd February was all about job interview day! I managed to secure an interview for a teaching assistant at a really amazing school in Manchester. Sadly, I didn't get it :( but I got through the first stage whilst we were there to actually get an interview! Better luck next time! Obviously this wasn't me, but this is how I felt having the headteacher, deputy head and head of the department there!

#010 - Saturday 4th February - It snowed!! :) This was the first snow I'd seen all housemate and I had gone to dunelm buying a few bits for the house and next minute we looked outside and it was snowing! :) Liam and I then went to town to get a few bits and this was the view out of the Arndale centre!!

#011 - Sunday 5th February - Liam and I had noodles and chicken for tea, have to say it was scrummy!! (is that even a word?!)

#012 - Monday 6th February - Nothing much happened today but I have decided I want to start madly saving again! - I want to make sure I go for a nice summer holiday this year, but also neeeeeed some new lenses for my SLR camera so any spare change is going in this little pot that I can't open :)

#013 - Tuesday 7th February - Again, just worked all day, found out I didn't get the job :( boohoo! and spent all evening listing items onto the Bay of the E that is Ebay! Take a peek ...items end a week on Friday!

I have decided that Saturday's or Sunday's are going to be my day / night of posting the Project 365's so this week will be a shorter one as have posted loads just now!

Can you believe tomorrow I have been blogging for a year?!! Something exciting will be coming up! xxx

Project 365 - #007

Soo I had a huge surprise today going into work and looking for old payslips when I came across one for this month...I was at home for the whole of Christmas and hadn't worked, but they'd put holiday pay through for me...amazing surprise! 

(Obviously, for security I have just found an image off google for today's post!)

Hope you've all had a lovely night - I've been feeling all mushy watching One Born Every Minute again!
