02:59 pm - Rant
F*£k this bloody business! Planning a wedding overseas has to be one of the most stressful things ever!! I can't wait until I am back in NZ with a very large cold beer/wine/anything alcoholic with my family and friends in more favourable weather!!!
Yep, I am stressed!

...I guess the world hasn't ended then? Phew, I just spend a fortune on lingerie yesterday and want to be able to wear it to my wedding :-)
Invitations in the post in the next week or so...where does the bloody time go? They are starting to talk about Christmas already!!

07:27 am - I can't stop smiling
I am expecting the men in white coats to turn up. I am happily sitting on the tube and people are staring at me, I don't avert my eyes, I smile right back. This week has just been crazy.
So, who is free in January to attend my wedding? Chris got down on one knee on Valentines Day and after saying yes, we promptly had several glasses of champagne and rang up both sets of parents. I woke up the next day with several love heart balloons in the lounge. We went out for dinner and apparently I was taking the balloons off other people's tables. We got a cab home and I squashed all the balloons in and sang very badly to the cab driver. I hope Chris doesn't change his mind....
Plus, we had an offer accepted on a house yesterday!!! :) I think I need a cuppa and a lie down.....

01:48 pm - Detox
I thought I would never see the day....I have had too much booze. My kidneys are sore and I keep burping up acidic stuff. I am seriously going to try not drinking for a month to give my poor body a break.
One week with Chris' parents in Yorkshire has done it and it is only New Years Eve.
On a lighter note....Happy New Year to those partying in NZ!!! Miss you all

08:53 am - Ships in the night
I passed my boyfriend on the train this morning. I can't deal with it when Chris is doing night shifts. It is even worse when he rings me at work and he is tucked up in bed and he eats all the cookies!!!! Roll on the weekend

12:20 pm - Just a little bit scared....
Well, I feel like my mood is changing at the moment and I don't know what to do about it.
I have decided I hate my job. I get up every day at 6am and it takes me an hour on the train and the bus to get to central London whilst fighting my way through hordes of people. (I gave up on the tube ages ago...just plain unpleasant) I then work in a job which hardly pays well (in London terms), with loads of stress and all my good mates here have left and got new jobs or are definitely looking. The attitude in this work place is at an all time low and no one wants to come to the pub with me at the lunch break to have a wine to dull the pain. I look forward to getting home at 5pm (if I am lucky) and the only thing good about the whole day is to snuggle with my boyfriend on the couch with a lovely (you guessed it) glass of wine...or maybe a bottle. Don't get me wrong, my homelife and social life is great, but that isn't everything....
I guess what I am working up to now is that I am seriously thinking of coming home. I don't think I am giving up, I just think i want different things from life now. I want to live in a house bigger than the small one bedroom flat we are renting and I want to have my family just on the other side of the city not the world.....
But I haven't lived in NZ for so long and moving is terrifying.......

07:41 pm - Mr Grumpy
I would be lying if I said that I am happy to be back in London.
After having 3 weeks off I have my first day of work tomorrow and my sleep patterns are still a bit erratic due to the jet lag. Unfortunately, my boyfriend Chris has been bearing the brunt of this behaviour and being the selfish person I am, I get bored, and need some company at 3am in the morning!! This morning I had to deal with Mr Grumpy who was a trifle tired after my early morning ramblings. But I made him a lovely 7am cup of tea and promised him a pub lunch in our local pub today(due to the fact today is a bank holiday monday)
Otherwise, my holiday back in NZ was far too quick. Many thanks to everyone for just being yourselves, Chris and I had a wonderful time. We both found it really hard to get on that plane back to London!!! It gets harder to leave everytime.
On a brighter note, it is actually lighter and sunnier in London today! Woohoo, I won't feel quite like a vampire when I get up tomorrow morning.
