That’s better December 6, 2010

So I’ve spent my lunch break:
1) queueing in the post office (for what felt like forever)
2) moving my new blog to wordpress and copying the 4 measely posts I had on blogger over – how exciting!

Miles prefer wordpress already, although I’m still not happy with the theme so expect that to change!

This weekend I mainly hibernated due to the bad weather! The pavements were like solid blocks of ice so apart from trailblazing in the new wellies to Sainsburys and hitting the gym, I did very little on Saturday. I did get my bake on and make a steak, ale and stilton pie which was amazing if I do say so myself! Then on Sunday I hit town with the rents for some Christmas shopping (I wasn’t very successful – I just bought myself a nail varnish and some lunch!)

Obviously I watched X Factor, and I loved the Glee performance!

I personally thought it was a true testement to the fact they can actually sing! And I have   massive girl crush on the girl who plays Brittany in the show – she is stunning!

The Black Eyed Peas on the other hand…………….I just dont get it! I have loved most of their past music, but this latest dirty dancing track, well I just dont get it!

Any X Factor opinions or more exciting weekends than mine?! xxx

With the recent flurry of snow in the south, my heels and boots dont seem to be cutting it. Even the horrible trainers I wear to commute still mean I get to the office with frost bite in my toes! And now with the snow turning to ice, it’s either adapt or hibernate (and I dont think hibernation is an option!)
So I spent yesterday lunch break hitting Oxford Street for some suitable footwear. I looked on a few websites for some cheapy wellies, but when I found them they had zero grip on the bottom and would definitely result in me going flying! My ideal pair would have been:
Hunters wellies classic short in graphite – I love them!! But for £60, I dont love them enough – especially just before christmas! So instead I opted for:
“Office Croc Print Welly 2 Black Shiny Rubber” – doesnt the name just roll off the tongue?! But I love them – they are wellies without the obvious look I’m wearing wellies, and today I willingly walked to sainsburys just to plough through the snow! And with glasto on next year, hopefully I’m a step closer to fitting in!
How are you all coping with the current weather situ?!
