When the kid is away.. Adults have midnight Mcdonalds

As I said at the end of last weeks post, Sophia went away all of last week to visit family out of Edinburgh, the first half of the week with my family and the other half with her dad and his family. When she first left I didn't know what to do with myself, luckily I still had shifts to do at work to keep me busy for a few of the days.
When it came to Wednesday, Ruairi and I decided to have a little cinema date which we rarely get a chance to do, we went to see 'War for the Planet of the Apes' and it was such a good movie! It had me laughing and crying all the way through.

After the cinema we decided to make the night all for things we wouldn't get to do usually, so we got in the car and went for a drive into town for a wee midnight McFlurry (I was absolutely freezing so had a coffee instead). Then we ended the night with staying over at his dad's house, which made me feel like a teenager again because having my own house means I don't usually go to other people's houses to sleep anymore.

It was kind of nice having some time to myself to just do things whenever I wanted to but as soon as I finished my shift at work at half 2 on Saturday I couldn't have gotten to my Nana's house any faster! Big cuddles from my little Sophia were definitely what I needed!

Going Dairy Free.

Quick disclaimer for this post, all information has come from my own research and advice from my doctor. There are photos on this post that show my skin when my acne was pretty bad so if that's something that could be uncomfortable then maybe this post isn't for you.

In around May 2017 I had decided that enough was enough when it came to my skin, I was sick of not being able to wear t-shirts or anything that showed off my shoulders/back, covering myself up all the time especially on warmer days wasn't ideal and my confidence was at a low. I had done some of my own research and found a lot of videos and articles that linked acne to dairy products, there was so many youtube videos which showed how much people's skin cleared up after they cut dairy out of their diet. I sat on it for a few days and continued to do research until I decided to just go for it, I ordered a big food shop to the house with nothing that contained dairy, I've found new butters and milks that I…

The Week off

Last week while I was working I was thinking that I definitely had a holiday coming soon but I had completely forgotten about it, so you can imagine my surprise when I was told that my holiday was actually this week! I wish I could say I've been super productive, I did originally plan to decorate my bedroom but with the time off being quite last minute I didn't want to hurry around and get everything I needed for decorating when I could actually just relax for once.

Monday to Friday were pretty standard, Sophia still had nursery so it was quite odd having time to just chill out and not be getting ready to leave for work, I also tried to make time for friends that I don't get to see that often which was quite lovely. After nursery on Friday my mum came through to pick Sophia up and take her away for the weekend, so it was even more weird not having to wake up super early on Saturday for either work or Soph.

Last night Ruairi and I had a wedding reception to go to with some f…

A look back on October

Sophia has been put to bed, the housework has been partially done and I've had a long day so it's finally time for me to sit down and talk to myself on here!

Another month crossed off of 2017, October was a good one! A wee holiday from work, lots of time with Sophia and HALLOWEEN! I wish I had lots of stories for each week of the month but life hasn't been that exciting really, I think the main reason I've enjoyed it so much is probably just because it has been nice and quiet and it is nice sometimes to just not have anything big going on. I'm loving the darker nights, warmer clothes and all the hot drinks I can have whenever I like.

Last Saturday after working a 9 hour shift at work I had to quickly get home and ready for a Halloween party with Ruairi and some of his friends and family, sadly with having limited time to get ready, the 10 minute make up was scary enough so I didn't take any photos that night, I went there with the mindset that I'd be leaving…
