Win Win!

The day has come....Adam has a new love in his life....welcome Mrs Xbox One.
I don't mind tho, it means I get lots of bribery bubble baths to give him time to play.... Now I know why Paul & Mike were so generous with my birthday present, good planning guys!
Harmony is restored in Chez P!

Brrr!

I am loving it, winter's my favourite time of year! Finally the evenings are dark & chilly so I can snuggle up on the sofa in my new onesie or venture out in my new Superdry coat (which finally arrived, no thanks to Hermes).
I know it's only November but I'm already excited about Chrimbo (even though I'm working for a lot of it) I'm using all my willpower to not put up the decorations already! Eager beaver or what?! I just love how everything feels so magical!

I'll be getting even more excited tomorrow when we visit Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. I had this great idea to go ice skating till I found out it was £32 for both of us for an hour....maybe I'll leave that romantical vision in my head...in reality it would been us trying to dodge kids falling over everywhere & then coming in after about 30min cos we're cold & have achy legs! Who says romance is dead?!

What does the 'P' stand for?

think I've figured it out...Pensioner!

Getting older isn't something that bothers me but it's been more evident in the past few weeks that I'm not such a spring chicken anymore.
Case No 1:
I went to buy sparklers & it said you would need ID. I worried cos my driving licence still has my maiden name on it so doesn't match my bank card...needn't have worried I was handed them without question (I am 29!). This proves I look older than I feel & they think I'm a responsible adult (which worries me more!)

Case No 2:
I went to buy Adam COD (the game not the fish) & when I went though the self-scanner the woman came over to agree I was old enough & ticked the box that said 'customer is definitely over 25.' Charming!

I'm not the kind of girl that rolls her eyes when they get asked for ID....maybe another point of being old....I see it as a mega compliment?!

Anyways I better go & get me slippers ready for a Friday night in with Adam, argh I am old....!

Baby you're a firework!

Last weekend after a 3year gap, Ally Pally hosted it's firework display.
I'd never been before so it was pretty cool to see the famous building at night in all it's glory!
The event was completely sold out & thanks to George & Claire having been before we knew exactly where to stand for a good view. While we waited for the show to start we enjoyed watching other displays all over London from our high vantage point.
The show was set to music & lasted about 20min with lasers too. We got lots of ooohs & aaahs for our money that's for sure!

Afterwards we set off on the hunt for mulled wine & a hot dog, once the mission was accomplished we went back to George & Claire's for rice pudding & a cuppa!
As I was writing this I was thinking how awesome the fireworks had been & how I love this time of year....that was till some numpty down our road set of a whole string of them just now. Ever heard of anti-social hours?! Grr!
