Affiliate Get Together In London

I usually don’t write about work, but as this was a party I am making an exception.

food-003After about 3 hours sleep (mainly due to Monkey going missing) I arose at stupid o’clock to head off to London with the boss man Mark. Thanks to Mark for buying breakfast – it was much needed! We went to a number of meetings around London before heading back to get ready to go out. 29th-march-2009-004On the way to somewhere (bad memory) I spotted a brand new form of advertising, basically, some people had steam cleaned mould in the form of adverts! I thought it was awesome and very inventive, mark not so much.

I had decided to buy a new outfit to hopefully show off my new slender figure – ‘lesbian’ was the comment I got. So I am not sure if that is good or bad!?! We had a quick drink in the bar with Elaine, Dave, Julie, Nick? (crap with names – Just found out, it’s Dan! oops) Jason and John – and to be honest the excitement, lack of food and tiredness meant the wine hit my head pretty quickly!

Off to the bar and a great job had been done organising, and I got to catch up with so many old friends and new faces that I had so far only met via the forum or msn! good times! I can’t be arsed to name everyone as I would be here all night, but you all know who you are.

A few games of pool, and yes I lost miserably, a distinct lack of available men for me to flirt badly with and lots more wine later and the night begins to blur. You see if people give me booze, I drink it. Apologies to anyone I met, I don’t remember talking to you, I most probably did something stupid, so sorry!

There is a vague recollection of the limbo (ragga ragga) and me doing the splits for the first time ever in my life (ouchy)

A few of us headed to Heaven (a gay bar, not the spiritual place) – So big up to J Lil, Mark, Mikey, Adam, Graham and Jo… I think that’s everyone! I hope! Bloody wicked night! Team XTreme you never cease to amaze me!

In we went at Heaven, and we had been in there no more than 5 minutes when Gay Porn Idol began, which basically consisted of 10 hot fit guys stripping and dancing. Number 3 got our vote. I think it was him who pulled out the ‘willy windmill’ – you gotta love a willy windmill! Here is ME DRUNK

Some more dancing later, and I have no clue. I know I got home at 5am, complete with Mark’s coat (it’s mine now) and very sore feet. I arose the next morning to much piss taking and many bruises. I was supposed to have anpther meeting but the boss man booked the wrong frigging train, so it was a mad dash to the station. I got home to be greeted by and angry Monkey and my parents. Oh the pain!

Here are the pics I managed on my shitty phone!

More Friends To Visit… Godly!

Bit late in writing this, but hey! I have been busy!

Some friends Jay and York-Sea came to see me last Friday! They arrived a little early so I sent them into town to have a snoop whilst I finished up at work. Come 4pm, it was home time (well, I left early) and off we all trundled to mine!

We all settled in before Jay decided he wanted to WALK (What??) to Tesco to grab some bits and bobs, then a stop at the chippy for tea! Hurrah for chippies! We soon settled in for Red Nose Day and watched the un-funny pap.

Bed time and morning soon arrived and we decided what to do for the day. To the relief of my ears neither of them wanted to do much but aimlessly potter, so we headed up to the moors and boy was it STUNNING. It is magical up there. Photo’s just dont sum it up. The sun was shining, I was with some great mates and the scenery was FAB. Oh, and there were ponies and rocks to play with! We had a brilliant walk up the moors and down again before heading down into town.

Into town for a potter, and we obviously picked up a tasty pasty (although I hate them, I had one anyway!) and we went in all the weird odd shops full of tat. Me and York-Sea were in heaven as Jay grumbled his way round behind us.

We strolled up to the Hoe which in the sun is incredible, truly gorgeous. We climbed to the top and the views just got better, I have to say the climb was pretty scary, I have no clue how the people actually lived there! A few too many whiskies and you would be in trouble!

We then pottered along the big wall stopping to skim stones, obviously! and for an ice cream. Mine was turkish delight and marshmallow, talk about orgasmic! Devon ROCKS!

Yet another Captain Jaspers, and no I still cannot manage a jasperizer! I shall defeat you one day oh burgery goodness!

We spotted some amusing signs offering fishing trips, singles in Plymouth and a personal fave in a cafe window – hippies use side door… We didn’t venture in!

Home time for some grub and a chill out.

Day 2 and we all got up early, got prettied up and headed to mass. Jay is a Roman Catholic and we all went with him to mass. I have to say, mass gives me tingles. I love the singing and the chanting, I just dont agree with the tosh the Priest says. But we can argue that case for hours!

We then headed round to Mount Batten, where I learnt to dive. I managed to pick up my official PADI card, that proves I can do it, before we strolled out onto the breakwater. We were once again blessed with stunning weather and there was a beautiful view out to sea (Plymouth Sound) and even better – THREE ships were in, meaning boys all over town! hurrah! We grabbed some food before heading back and York-Sea and Jay had to go :(

All in all a great weekend, relaxing, fun and beautiful, you two can come again!

The More I Gym: The More I Hurt – WTF???

I don’t know if this is just because all the jokes I made about being my body slowly failing are coming true or what but I am aching, all day, everyday. The more I go to the gym the more everything hurts! That cannot be right, i hope! If it is true, I’m going back to being fat.

Last night for example, I went to my regular Monday Body Pump. I put my weights up considerably, and felt the burn. I even managed some weights on my neck for a short while whilst squatting before the pain got too much.

I then went onto a serious Body Combat session (ended up as 1 hour 15) It was super intense as there were 2 extra instructors along with Di. Sorry to say this but I had no clue what they were saying, it was like DJ (with Plymouth accent) on the mike disease took over them both! Anyway, it turns out that a lady who used my gym for years and was well loved passed away, so they let rip on us in ode to her.

After that a good 40 minute walk (2.01 miles) and off home.

I got in, and could not walk. I literally collapsed in a heap on the floor in agony, from my canckles to me knees – absolutely everything hurt. I tried getting Monkey (my cat) to help, but she didn’t understand the tears. I eventually got into bed and applied lashings of deep heat. I’m still in pain today, but I keep pushing forward, it’s all about a higher cause. Getting slim again!

Anyone else suffer, or is my body fooked?
