"PAPER HAS MORE PATIENCE THAN PEOPLE".

Reading: The Diary of Anne Frank (Unedited version)- Anne Frank.

Do you know that feeling where you have a Cheesstring for breakfast, have a hole in your cup-a-soup so miss lunch and can't find your mug for a cup of tea at work PLUS due to admin error the clinic your working on is booked wrong so you don't actually get a break all day so end up being so hungry you want to eat furniture? Yesterday I had that feeling, and a cheesstring and several glasses of water from 7am to 6pm may be enough to live on but its not fun.

I honestly cannot express how annoyed I was yesterday- lately the admin/management have decided to take it into their hands to propose a few changes on the ward I work on and this last week has just been a nightmare, and I won't bore you with all the details but it looks like the permanent staff numbers are being cut (whoop whoop agency work) but no body actually feels like learning what I have been doing for the last year in order for them to secure a job. As such all the increases in clinic have affected me. I'm the one who has do to extra hours, I'm the one doing extra paperwork, and I'm the one missing out on breaks.

Which is a long way about trying to apologise for being a poor blogger this week- thank you so much  for every comment I have received and yet to reply to- I promise that is my task for this morning!



Hat: H&M
Necklace: Topshop
Shirt: eBay (Similar here)
Skirt: eBay
Tights: Primark
Jacket: Bay
Shoes: Charity shop (originally American Eagle).

Being near breaking point for killing Chris and eating his remains (ignoring the fact I'm vegetarian) I dragged him to Pizza Hut as soon as he came round. This is the cosy outfit I wore that was basically hiding a number of sins- the fact my hair REALLY needed a wash and was taking on a wild 80's look (which I rather like) and tights to hide my unshaven legs.

The locket necklace in another amazing find- yay another long necklace that's not a cross! But my all time favourite item I'm wearing is the striped shirt. Despite the constant jokes I get about refereeing (its like people think its the first time I have heard it) I love the it! In fact I really like black and white stripes in general, and often wonder why I don't fill my wardrobe with them. A company that also loves stripes in Motel Rocks which I often lust over owning. This sleevelesss shirt is a very close match for my shirt, and this dress is beautiful, but I think this body suit is the top pick (and if you are wondering how to style it the beautiful Becca has an amazing example).


We were  placed in 'kiddy-corner' where every parent decided that children could run around and shout and throw food and pretty much fur riot- which we didn't really mind in the slightest as we had a amazing waitress! My boyfriend asked me how do we go about getting another drink and he barely finished the sentence when she arrived with another! Telepathic waitress! She also turned up the music for us in attempt to drown out the screaming and was just really attentive to us.

Me and Chris found it a little funny that we were clearly the only couple there not on a date- just out for food, and joked constantly about our lack of need to impress. We have just got to the point were we are that comfortable to just 'exsist' with each other. Also we watch a dad offer his son the chance to try rocket for the first time- he was not impressed. He was waving his arms and wiping his tongue and I can't even explain the facial expression- but was very cute. He even tried it a second time- same reaction, and to be honest its very close to the reaction I give when I eat too much rocket (I only like a tiny amount) and when Chris tried it. I don't know what it is about rocket that no one really seems to like- does anyone else react this way?

  12. Haha I completely wear tights when I haven't shave too! It's my go-to for winter when I'm clearly not getting laid, getting in a bikini and I just can't be stuffed so I go yep, cute printed tights it is. Not to mention with all the different patterns and textures you can get, can't quite imagine why you wouldn't want to wear tights anyway :)

  21. I love your blouse - I have one literally exactly the same!!! I also get the referee jokes. So original! You look HOT in this outfit. so cool :)

    You and Chris sound just like me and Andrew! I don't miss the excessive amounts of dates etc though, I love being with him and being a family.

    I've heard Hole on XFM a few times now! XFM is all I really listen to these days, and maybe radio1 when I fancy a bit of pop. Thanks for your lovely comment on my outfit - what magazine was it? I haven't read a fashion magazine in months due to the fact I'm disgustingly poor :( Can't wait to get back to uni, get a big fat student loan, and be able to afford things like Love and ID again

    1. thanks. Its not that i miss dates its that i can no longer physically gate- ive lost that need to impress.
      on xfm? the few times i have listened to it i hated it maybe i need anouther try
      it was vogue and of course i dont buy them (hello poverty) a surgeon brings them in for the unit. if i even got a student loan i still dnt think i could have afforded them.

  26. Such a gorgeous outfit! And living on a cheesestring sounds like crap, I'd eat my boyfriend as well I think, but Pizza Hut sounds better. Ah thanks, now I want pizzaaaa! :( And I've never noticed your acne, so don't worry, you look very pretty!

  27. I love the blouse! Have been looking for right one, I am too big busted to get away with most of them. Sorry things were a nightmare at work, hope things get better for you eventually.

    80's grungy look is the way to go

  29. Oh dear about the food situation! I've had to work through my lunch breaks many a time and I've gotten so cranky I've actually nearly strangled my work colleagues or decided to go in the toliets and sit in the fetal position for the rest of the day. Oh the brighter side though, your outfit is lovely, I like the shirt and the hat! Very chic!
