19 & 21

I missed 20! But that's ok because it's a leap year right?

This is the wall above my bed. I adore photo walls with mismatched frames. I hope the boyfriend knows that when we live together, none of the picture frames will match! My mum is great at spotting nice photo frames at car boot sales. The little gold one set her back a whopping 20 pence!

And exciting news! The boyfriend and I are going away to Thailand at the end of May! Hence the beach photo as my work computers desktop. He asked me the other day "are you sure you definitely want to go to Thailand? Because we can go absolutely anywhere" I said the desktop has spoken! Before we went to Egypt last October I cemented our decision by changing my desktop to a beautiful Egyptian beach. I'm ridiculously excited! I haven't quite saved up all the money yet (although flight money is set aside already) but I've bought a bikini so I feel I'm well prepared!

On the job hunt front, I had yet another meeting with a recruitment agent yesterday who said she had a very good feeling about me so keep your fingers crossed!!

My weekend in pictures

Lovely weekend and the weather really cheered everyone up I think. My roses from Valentines day have started to wilt :-( so I'm having a go at pressing them. Hopefully they'll turn out nicely and I can put them in a nice frame.

We went to a new pub in my local area called Tapping the Admiral. Really lovely little North London pub which I really recommend. It's tucked away from the high street so it has a nice local feel about it. We spent the afternoon watching the England V Wales game there. The nice pub couldn't really make up for the result. That was a tense last few minutes of the game! I loved the signs posted around everywhere. The one pictures was my favourite. I think this should be a standard rule for all pubs :-)

And lastly my chill out outfit for today.

Introducing one of my cats Astro. He's a lazy bum and likes to lie around the house like this all day. He's the only cat I know that likes to have his belly rubbed as well. Tomorrow I'll take a photo of the other cat Juno for number 17 :-)

14 & 15

Two outfit posts in a row. The second outfit post is actually a very exciting outfit post because it's the outfit I've bought for meeting recruiters :-) I'm so happy I had a massive tidy up of my CV, got it down to 2 pages (it used to be 4 *ahem*) and within a few hours of applying I got call backs from not 1, but 2 recruitment agencies wanting to meet with me eeek! The first is today at 2pm and the job is an office manager in a swanky west end office, and the second for next Monday is a PA role in a nice little estate agents office in Primrose Hill. Wish me luck!! 

And the first outfit, well I couldn't very well go shopping without buying something fun for the weekend could I?!?

 Date night with the boyfriend. Something to take my mind off horrible job hunting. Here's what I'm wearing out.

Skinny Jeans - Eiffel Tower t-shirt, grey cardigan, blue scarf, floral tennis shoes.

Pancakes! And what I wore.

Can you believe Shrove Tuesday came around so quickly?? This year is already running away and it's barely even the end of February! I think it's just one of those things, when you get older years seem to rush by at a rapidly increasing rate. Before you know it, you blink and a whole year has rushed by!

The job hunt is still ongoing. It is a bit disheartening when you send out something like 20 CV's and covering letters in one day and don't hear a whisper back, but I'll persevere. Now I know why people say that looking for a full time job IS a full time job!

About 9 months ago, in a moment of... delirium?...Insanity?....Drunkness??....I seem to have signed up to run the Adidas Silverstone Half Marathon. My race pack arrived today. This s**t just got real....

09 and 12

Eek I've been a bit lazy over the weekend. I did have all sorts of nice plans to have a wander around the Southbank with the boyfriend on Saturday but rain (and him having a monstrous hangover) sort of scuppered those plans. Instead we had a lazy morning around the house and had lunch out. Both of which I forgot to take 365 photos for. Yesterday I went bowling with my sister and boyfriend. I don't know what happened but I used to be quite good at bowling. I was absolutely horrendous! But at least we had fun :-)

My recent 365 photos display my favour t-shirt from GAP and a dodgy pound coin I was slipped over the weekend. Something tells me it might be a fake....

The job hunt is also still on going but exciting news! The boyfriend and I went for a walk yesterday around some new build sites in North London. He hinted (rather blatantly I might add) that as soon as I'm able to afford to move out of my mum's (which depends entirely on someone else hiring me so pleeeaase somebody hire me!!) we'll more than likely start looking into buying a place of our own. So beware employment agencies out there, you're about to be inundated with copies of my CV!

What I wore to work today. Speaking of work, I'm desperately searching for a new job! I had my appraisal last week and was completely deflated when the penny dropped that absolutely nothing about my role will be changing over the coming year. Not even my pay! :-( So it's out with the old (job) and in with the new..hopefully. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that one of my many job applications comes back successful.

Aww my wonderful boyfriend had some roses delivered to my office yesterday for Valentines day.
After work he took me out where  I was wined and dined with some amazing food and live jazz music at The Foundry in Camden Town. Such an amazing evening and I couldn't have asked for a better person to spend it with.
Last night on a whim we decided that we should go to Thailand for our next holiday. Cue saving money like a maniac and scouring websites for good flight deals! We haven't even booked anything yet and I'm already excited!!

New shoes!! There's something special about having a pair of shiny new shoes. Especially when they have funky tassels on them.
And today is Valentines Day! What better day to wear my pretty new shoes out?
The boyfriend has booked us into a secret restaurant tonight. He won't tell me where though. I do love surprises!

The more observant people will notice that I've jumped the gun with this blog and gone straight to number 6 in my 365 project. You'll actually find the rest here But I've fancied starting a new blog for a while now (one that I might actually keep up with!) and what better excuse to  upload photos and drawl on with my random thoughts.
