Like a baby

I am seriously like a baby. Today I’ve been out with my work friends, had 1 drink and some food and now I’m tired. Literally yawning twice a minute, my eyes are going. If I was given a blanket now I’d be gone. But it doesn’t help that it’s jumper session and I’m in the fluffiest jumper ever, so I’m cosy and full, so ready for a nap.

One of the reasons I didn’t enjoy working 9-5 was the fact I couldn’t have a nap. I enjoy having lunch and going to sleep, it’s a lovely think!

But I can’t just go to bed because I have an  interview at a pub in town. Not really what I want to go but I just need a new job. I don’t particularly want to do the last nights and weekends but I also no longer want to work the dreaded Sunday at the cafe so. Hopefully, if I get it – but I am experienced, it’ll be a job til I get one I actually want!

So I have a coffe and off I go, WISH ME LUCK!


Book review – This man

** – two stars – ok.

From the reviews from this book I thought it was going to be amazing, ‘book of the year’ so I was really excited to read it. But it was really just ok. Like it was readable ish, but if I hadn’t finished it I wouldn’t care.

The start was ok, and then she meets Jesse and omg then it just turns into the cheesiest story that I’ve ever read.

He was that handsome I couldn’t contain myself… you are a woman, pull yourself together! It’s just a man.

All he has to do is kiss and I’m his, I don’t bloody think so, grow up!

And the story just repeated itself so much. Meet, sex, fall out, kiss, sex, meet nex, fallout, kiss, sex over and over and over again. I needed excitement.

I don’t know if it’s because I am now used to reading thrillers now so that’s all about mistery and being gripped the entire time. But still I was reading it because I felt I had to finish it not because I was enjoying it.

And If had to read him say “I love you in lace” one more time I was going throw up on the book. It was just cheesy as hell.

The end was ok, I’m glad it wasn’t just ok and the twist what he does was very very good. But it has two more books and I am not going to bother.

So believe this review not the other, don’t really bother.


Why is this normal?

Er I’ve been working 9-5 everyday. I had today off and it’s been amazing and all I have really done is eat and sleep!

like seriously what kind of life is it working 9-5 I really do not want it!

I really don’t mind the job at all. I’ve been doing it all summer and I’ve got quite into it but it’s to much customer service for my liking so it’s nothing I could consider as a career doing admissions. Also a lot of the team have gone on holiday so there’s a lot more work for me so I don’t tend to be bored like I have been doing.

Its just the hours. How do people with a 9-5, full time, permanent job have a live? Like seriously?! I get up at 7 travel to work spend 8 hours there, get home, eat and that’s I’m ready for bed! And then you just have to do it all over again?! That is not a life just waiting for the weekend to what, sleep?

When do you exercise, see friends, drink and still get enough sleep?! This should not be a normal thing!

I honestly think I could absolutely adore my job and not what to do this 9-5 shit every week. There has got to be a better way!


Isn’t this petty…

So my mother has currently fallen out with me and won’t speak to me. Do you want to know why? Because I couldn’t go get her nails done with her because I had already invited the boyf round. Yep… thats it.

Yesterday I told her that James was downstairs. She said oh well I was going to say I’m getting my nails done, I said oh sorry, we can go tomorrow if you want, she said no, I need to go today, I said ok.

Then I was sat downstairs with the boyf. She comes in, doesn’t even look at us. James says hello, she ignores him, I said are you going shopping going shopping as well? she ignores me then just leaves. She comes back in the same mood.

Whenever she is like this I just stay in my room til she grows up a bit, because believe or not this happens more than you would think. My mother, a 60 year old woman, goes a strop all the time but this time is just ridiculous.

I’d spend the entire night before with her, she could of mentioned that she wanted to get her nails done, I went to tell her something in the morning, she could of told me then. No she only mentions something when I have already made other plans. She only tells me 5 minutes before she wants to go. If she had told me before 30 seconds before she wants to go I would of told James not to come.

I am a young woman, maybe just maybe I might have made other plans. I don’t have a huge social life, but if I do try and make plans for the weekend and now I’m being ‘punished’ for it.

I think its crazy. She definitely needs to grow up and maybe act like, I don’t know the mother in this relationship.

Normally I do just sit here and wait for her to stop sulking but yesterday I did so much for her and my dad. I booked two lots of cinema tickets, I checked them into their flights and printed there boarding passes off, I sent some emails for them, filled my dads iPod. I did all this and I’m in my room writing this because apparently I’m still a horrible person…

Oh I still haven ‘t said the best bit. Me and my mother are supposed to be going to the cinema today to go see the new mission impossible. It starts at 3.45, its 12.40 and still she hasn’t spoke to me so this is going to be fun.

I don’t even care I’m just going to sit in here til she comes in and says something because I am not apologising I haven’t done anything wrong!

Does anyone think I have done anything wrong, because if you do please tell me what it is because I would love to know what I am supposed to be feeling guilty over…. because to me its just very very VERY petty!

I’m back!!!!

I have just returned from my short break to Barcelona with the Boyf, hence why I have been absent and not filling up the reader with my problems.

I have had an absolutely fantastic time! Had lots of tapas, lots of beer, done so much walking and sight seeing and even more eating! The poor boyf he did’t come bcak to mine becuase he said he needed a days rest, he’s come back from our mini break knacked! oh well I enjoyed it, and I believe that when you go somewhere, especially an incredible city like Barcelona, then you have to get up, see and try everything you possible can. I was actually pissed because I wanted to go up the mountain to the temple but he looked abit tired the next day so I let it go, but next time I will.

I did see lots of Incrediabke things though.

However, while I did have a fantastic time and obviously I love my boyfs company. I am not going to lie he was driving me insane and we was only there 3 full days!!

He doesn’t listen to me, he’ll nod and say yeah, yeah, then 10 minutes latear ask me why were doing something, or why we getting this train, or what are we doing again. ERRRR i did just literally tell you, I said is that ok and you just looked at me nodding, as always. But then I say, I did just tell you, and then. her gets all mardy and arsey, and there is nothing I hate more on this earth than a mardy arsey boy! ERRRRRR. It just happended so much.

Another thing. I organsied the whole trip. I found it, I booked it, I fixed the airport situation, I found what we could do there, sorted more, transport, times, food, absolutely everthing to the last detail, did I get a thank you? no. Then if anything went wrong like we got on the wrong train, but I realised immedately and got off to find when we next one was, then he asked and found out, what happens, OMG i’m so amazing, oh did you just see that, I am so helpful, oh you were so stressed, oh what would you do without me. Yeah mate fuck off, you wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for me yeah?

Er, boys. I do love my boyfriend, I really really really do. I do know I am extremely lucky because he is lovely and would do anything for and is nice and good to me. But sometimes I do feel he forgets that he is also lucky. I do a lot for him and a thank you wouldn’t go a miss.

Boys, like really sometimes, is it worth it?

Organised only for holiday!

For once I’ve actually got organised as I go away for the week on Tuesday!

Move packed my bag and done my liquids and sorted my make up just need to do my handbag tomorrow night.

I felt like I had to get organised this time as I am working 9-5 tomorrow then we leave at 9 Tuesday so have no time then.

So today I just randomly saw my bag and thought you know what instead of doing it quickly Monday night I could do it now!

I have also took my smaller bag because I thought, Rachel you do not need that much! So I had an outfit a day, underwear a day and one spare, one pair of sandals and that’s it. Liquids: shampoo, conditioner, suncteam, mascara and lip balm. I don’t need anything else I barely wear make up anyway never mind on holiday so it’s fine.

Anyway. What I have learnt today!

Sorting your bag out earlier great idea!

Pack light and liquids light also!

And don’t do what I did and not get your euros yet! Oops!


Book review – behind close doors

**** 4 stars! – Very Good!

It was so good to have a good book back in my hands, finally! I read this in less than 24 hours – that is how good it was.

It is a fantastic book til about half way through the book I was thinking omg what the hell is going on, then BAM, you get the absolute whole plot in one chapter and it just gets better and better.

You literally just cannot put it down, first you want to know why this marriage is the way it is? then it wow, then well how is it going to end.

I also really enjoyed how it was written, Many many books now have chapters written in different people perspective, which don’t get me wrong I do love, but this book does it by past and present which I really really enjoyed!

My only issue for why it isn’t 5 stars is because I know that it is a book so it isn’t really but the fact a woman would allow this to even happen just wouldn’t happen because the woman in the book is a strong woman.

And I found the ending slightly disappointing, only slightly, like it isn’t awful ending or anything like that just slightly. I think it could of ended better, it was kind of expected and because how good the rest of book was I expected more? but the final sentence is incredible.

Do read!
