Finally got a few minutes to myself after being so busy with work all week. It's been lovely to have a day where I don't need to get the bus. It has been a fun week though. I went to Pizza Express with my friend Amanda after work on Thursday and had some nice pizza that had a hole cut out of the middle with a salad in it, very yummy! I had frozen yogurt for dessert and Amanda had dough balls with nutella, I was very jealous. I bought a few lovely things in H&M which I will show you in an outfit post, hopefully on Tuesday.
I had 40% discount in Peacocks this week because I'm Cardiff Uni staff and went a bit crazy and bought two dresses, a top and 2 bracelets, I wouldn't normally splurge like this but how could I resist at 40% off?!
Last night I went to the World Book Day quiz that was hosted by my other job at Caerphilly Council. It's a bit lame that I didn't have anything better to do on a Saturday night but I did have fun. Library staff from all the neighbouring local authorities turned up and the Caerphilly team won for a second time in a row.
I've been trying out all the polishes that I bought on Wednesday and this is what the No7 'night night' shade looks like. It went on very easily and there is plenty of gold glitter in the black polish. It looks great on but it's coming off slightly at the tips and I've only had it on for a few hours. I think it might need more than one top coat.
I've not been reading much recently so I've got stuck in to these two books. One is about Barbara Castle who held the record as the female MP with the longest continuous service and she is the first, and to date the only woman to have held the office of First Secretary of State. She is a total inspiration to me and was dedicated to helping the people of the UK throughout her political career. I'm reading The Reader for my reading group that I run with my friends. It's a tad depressing but so far it's a great read. I've picked a bit of a chick lit book for our next group read because it can be hard work reading and discussing books with so many complex issues each time we meet.
I'm currently writing my first assignment for my short course I'm attending and emailing all the lovely people who joined up for the Pen Pal exchange so it's been a pretty busy day off.
