But all in all everyone has been lovely. Thank you xx
By far my favourite item was the WAH London nail art pen, it comes with a fine brush and a pen-like nib to do pretty patterns on your nails! It’s a bit tricky but with practise I think you can have some great fancy schmansy nails!
Happy #5: On Sunday I had a really lovely day with the boy. We had a lovely lay in and then a nice cup of tea while watching an episode of House (now on the final season..boohoo!!) and then we went into town for lunch. We went to Noodles soup, one of our current favourite places to go for lunch. I had king prawn laksa with rice noodles, it was delicious! We then went to see The Avengers – Age of Ultron at the cinema. Can’t beat a bit of superhero action movie!
We did end up getting into a huge debate about whether or not the yellow ones are lemon flavoured. What do you think? The packet suggests they are not flavoured but I am convinced the yellow ones taste ..well.. yellow! I think a blind taste test is in order.. I will need to get more!
Happy #2: Friday night was girls night, some of my best girl friends came over to my flat where we drank too much gin, sang very loudly and out of tune to Proud Mary. We danced and generally had a very silly, glorious time of it.
I am pretty sure this probably wasn’t a happy for my neighbours however. Apologies to them.
FIND THE HAPPY – Week 2 – Monday 13th April 2015 – Sunday 19th April 2015
I had my very first ski lesson on Sunday!
I was terrified. It seems the older I am getting the more terrified of things I am getting. It went okay. I fell over 3 times in my 3-hour lesson. About 2-hours in I wanted to cry and give up, falling down was quite a knock, especially when it involved a terrifying conveyor belt lift. It was quite fun going down when you got it right, but I did feel a bit like my lesson was a bit rushed and I really didn’t grasp the concepts fully. Just when I started to get the hang of something we would move on. There were 10 people in my class, right at the maximum so I think this is probably why we were a little pressed for time.
I am very much in 2-minds about it now. I didn’t hugely enjoy it, but I didn’t fully hate it. I was terrified and psyched myself out a bit I think. I want to like skiing, but I am not sure I do yet. I need to have a think and look at the lessons and how I am going to play it. I would be tempted to take the first 2 lessons again. I certainly do not think I am going to be ready for a ski holiday any time soon.
Aside from all this, it was a really nice day. Jezz and I got up super early and drove to pick up our friend (who is quite an experienced snow boarder) from his house in London. We stopped and had a breakfast wrap from McDonald’s (mmm naughty) then continued up to SnoZone in Milton Keynes. I had my lesson while the boys did their thing. They carried on a couple of hours after me and I had a little wander around the few shops they have there (might have purchased some pricey Roxy tops in the sale) and then sat with a cappuccino watching all the skiers. Once they were done we headed back to London and had Chinese, dropped off our friend and then came back to Brighton. Shower and bed. Exhausted! Skiing is hard work.
