I think a life update is most definitely required. I mass produced and scheduled 18 or so blog posts a month ago so I could be absent to deal with life, which meant my posts weren’t very ‘real time’ and comment-backing wasn’t as thorough as usual!
Although I have actually decided to change my regular commenting routine. I used to visit and comment on everyone in my blogroll at least every two days (as well as replying to comments left on posts here) but after realising that many of my blogrollers aren’t as generous with returning views/comments, I’m sticking to just commenting on blogs whose people say hello here! Those are the people I love and cherish!
It’s much more time efficient -no point in killing myself trying to comment on 50+ blogs every day when I’m getting nothing in return!
I’m a little crazy when it comes to Blogging Manners!
So work has been crazy (yeah, yeah, yeah…we’ve heard that before) and I’m really trying to work out a schedule that gives me adequate blogging time without losing that thing called Life.
I had last week off work, which I was planning on using as an Organisational Week (clean up the blog, catch up on emails, iron clothes, meet up with neglected friends, clean that weird stain off the kitchen cupboard…), but my brain freaked out and commanded my body to do absolutely nothing but eat nice food, watch Grey’s Anatomy and the Gilmore Girls and meet up with people!
I celebrated Halloween by paying homage to my Shakespearean counterpart from A Midsummer’s Night Dream and donned a Grecian outfit (which was technically a Roman outfit, but poTAYto/poTAHto and all that). Super fun night, even if it did stick me with a two-day hangover and a broken camera.
I do love my brand new Nikon Coolpix (although it’s missing the comfort of clutching onto my now broken HP), which I picked up after work yesterday, so I’ll have to get snapping for practice purposes!
Also worth mentioning is the GORGEOUS pair of shoes I bought from Awear!
I have spent three years looking for a pretty pair of black shoes with weeny heels, because I can’t walk in any heels over an inch high and flats just don’t look right with a fancy outfit or at an interview.
I’d received a voucher for Awear and decided to try my hand at this Online Shopping business. I never normally buy clothes online as I have an unusual shape and I ALWAYS have to try clothes on before I buy them.
I initially picked out a lovely dress, paid for it with no problems whatsoever and within a couple of days there was a super pretty pink package on my kitchen table (seriously, I wanted to marry the packaging)!
Unfortunately, the dress just didn’t sit right on my ‘special’ figure, but it was actually ridiculously easy to exchange it in one of the stores (unlike one of my Halloween costumes, where the company expected me to pay to post it back to them and wait for two weeks for a refund even though THEY had messed up on the size) and there I found THE shoes I’d been waiting my whole life for!
They make me so happy!
