That sounds nice. :) When are you travelling back?


I'm not doing much, really. I need to tidy a bit as Mum is coming to help me clean tomorrow. My bedroom feels completely overwhelming as it is such a mess. I think I might do a really good job of cleaning everything else (wet room and kitchen/living room) and see if she'll help me do my room when she gets here.

That sounds like a good idea.

In the morning. Looking forward too some quiet and my own space again, my family is great they are just very full on. It gets a bit much you know.

How is everyone this evening?

That sounds good, Sarah. Family can be a bit full on, I get what you mean - it'll be nice for you to be home. Do you have any plans for the week?


I'm OK. Tidying is going slowly. I have sprayed the bathroom with disinfectant, sorted out my "filing system" that was basically just to put everything on top of the microwave unopened. *rolls eyes at self* I have done two loads of washing up. I need to other things too, but slowly slowly.

Sounds like you are making lots of progress! Slow and steady is sometimes better

I'm working Wednesday but then am off for the rest of the week. Hoping to have a few quiet days not doing a lot!!

Quiet few days sounds good! I hope you get some good me-time! What do you have to do at work?

I need to do more tidying. *goes*

That sounds not too bad. What will you do with your quiet time? Anything nice for you?


I went! I disinfected the kitchen and cleared out a cupboard so I could put the hot chocolate that was in my side in it. Now I have a clear side!

*hugs Hannah* How are you feeling now, lovely? It's completely fine to put your woe in here. In fact, I would actively encourage it. I don't want you to stop saying things and I certainly don't hate you :)

Sounds like you're making good progress, Ducky :) Just do little things slowly and it won't feel as overwhelming. Do you think your Dad maybe realised he upset you when he commented on your bag, and was trying to make a gesture with the bracelet? Don't feel awkward about your gifts - he loves you and that's how he's trying to show it. My Dad is the same - not great with talking, but he likes to throw money at situations haha.

I bet you can't wait to get home Sarah.

Sams was quiet. Back to work tomorrow... half day on Thursday and day off on Friday though which will be lovely. It's not been nice without a proper Christmas break as I worked Friday and Sunday but it's okay. I'm really tired.

I feel bad I've only been here 4 days but it's more than long enough! 14 hours to go!!

I know what you mean, I have waitressed a few times over Christmas and it is difficult when you always coming and going and everyone else is celebrating festivities. Will you get any breaks in the new year? Look after yourself lovely x

4 days is a very long time to be cooped up with family! :P

I've not booked any time off yet as I need to save my annual leave for if I get invited for doctorate interviews. I probably won't be invited to any, but just in case! Regardless of what happens I'll try to book some time off for a rest :)

I will be hoping for interviews for you, Ali. :) Time off for rest sounds good!



I've just cleaned out the rats. They look happy! They've had hours out today. :)



I reserved a foot spa from Argos. Going to pick it up tomorrow. :) Its in the sale and I've wanted one for a while, so thought it would be a good use of some Christmas money. :)

Okay I am REALLY cheesed off!

I bought a dress from Topshop with some vouchers I received from a customer at work, a £60.00 dress only cost me £34.00. It arrived today, DAMAGED!

I am fuming. >.<

Oh no! I'd be fuming too, do they still have it online?

I'm going to have a look now actually... They should do! I'm going to take it back to a store though as I don't trust to send it back and them tell me that I've caused the damage. :S

OH CRAP it isn't available at the store I intend to take it back to. :S But it is at the Topshop in town. :S

Even though I have sent a complaint, and taken lots of pictures.

Plus, due to massive boobs the playsuit didn't seem to fit... Which has also annoyed me and put me on "I'm a fat ****" a downer. :(

I also ordered a t-shirt from New Look which is too small due to boobs. :( But I also feel like I'm too fat for it again. But I ordered another t-shirt and it fits perfectly.

I know it isn't my weight, I know it isn't. But I can't help but be made to feel like it is. :'(

That sounds frustrating about the damage, Nat. :( Big boobs are a pain. I have to get things bigger because of mine, too. *hug* It feels horrible, but you're right - it isn't your weight. It's because you're a busty lady! Which is no bad thing, not really. *hug*

Oh it is. :( I'm just really annoyed about it because it's something else I need to add on my list to do, which is already super long, and I don't have time to do any of the things on said list!

My boobs have got bigger the past year, and I'm still not used to their size. I like having big boobs (considering throughout the years I was one second flat chested, and the next had boobs) but I hate clothes not wanting to cooperate. :( Same about having a big bum too.

*hugs* Thank you Ducky for your lovely words. :)

I do have Wednesday off work though and my dad has said he'll come with me to sort it in town. I'm hoping I can pick up the size I want, without any muck on it. Either that or I'll get a refund and treat myself to a new bra. xD

I'm seeing my aunt Wednesday with my dad. I met her once as a baby, so I don't remember that AT ALL. xD So it'll be exciting, but nervous.

Hold on Ducky... I just noticed something... Are you... RED? Have you always been RED or have I just noticed something newww? :P

I'm glad it looks like it's going to get sorted. It's good your Dad is coming with you. :) Dads can be useful! :P


It's great that you'll be seeing your Aunt. That sounds nice. :) I can understand you being nervous. It she your Dad's sister? Has he seen her?


I've only been red a couple of days!

Well I didn't want to drive to town on my own to be honest, especially with all the sales going on. Plus it's always good to have a little backup... Especially as I can get really ratty when situations like this happen.

She's my dad's sister yes. :) He hasn't seen her since my gran died about 15 years ago. She's 20 years older than him so she's in her 80's or even 90's now. :| I hope she's lovely, in fact I know she'll be lovely. She said to my dad, "Oh bring little Nat over. I haven't seen her since she was a baby." :')

Ooo I thought it looked new! Well done to you sweetheart. <3

I hope you get it all sorted Nat! And I'm sure you'll have a lovely time seeing your aunt :) x

Hey Ducky, how are you?

I hope you're all okay <3

Thank you all for being lovely and reassuring. You're all wonderful <3
