You're sticking one tit moment on top of another tit moment! That wouldn't happen in real life!

Hello Monday, where did you come from?!

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I had a lovely one - I was working from home on Friday so I was able to meet Sugar Plum nice and promptly at 5 for some very fast after-work shopping (I bought a hair accessory to wear to her wedding) and some coffee and a chat. I usually work from home on Friday so it's becoming a nice little end-to-the-week ritual. Nic and I then had a nice quiet evening in with some DVDs and vegetarian toad in the hole. YUM!

Nic and I headed down to London on Saturday to do a bit of shopping and meet up with some friends. I bought my dress to wear to Sugar Plum and N's wedding and a few other nice dresses from the Fever shop, and I paid a second visit there with M later in the afternoon. It was very pleasant, but by the end of the afternoon my face was beetroot red from the effort of trying on so many dresses! I got the dress I wanted for the wedding, and the tartan 'Lavrel' dress, and another nice frock from the sample rack as well. It was lots of fun! Nic and I had a lovely potter around Soho, and paid a visit to the Vintage Mazagine shop so I could have my picture taken with Jon Pertwee:



We repaired in the afternoon to the John Snow on Broadwick street to have a few drinks with some London based friends, before heading home a little worse for wear in the evening. As always with going to London (for pleasure rather than work) I enjoy myself hugely until it's time to go home, and then the thought of getting the train back up to Leam is unbearable! Luckily we had the company of the lovely M for the whole journey so it sped by.

Nic and I have both been feeling rather under the weather this week - I have been coughing and sniffling for some time now and he caught my lurgy. Yesterday he was feeling particularly grotty so we had a duvet day of DVDs and tasty food. It was lovely to stay in the warm and drink lots of hot drinks, and I managed to finish the throw I have been making to go on the back of the sofa:



I'm very pleased with how it turned out and am already planning my next project!

I'm going to have a busy few days. I'm off to Leeds this afternoon for a conference tomorrow, and then on Wednesday I'm off to Manchester for another conference. It isn't long until work breaks up for Christmas and I head home, so I'm going to enjoy this little boom before we drop into the pre-Christmas lull. Unfortunately I haven't the time or the money to explore around Leeds or Manchester this time around, but that's probably just as well for my bank account as I still have a little bit of Christmas shopping to do. Luckily I don't have a lot more to do, but enough for it to be on my mind.

Other than that, I don't have anything exciting to report. Maybe after I've been up north for a few days I will have something more interesting to write about! Until then, here are a few more pictures from the weekend:

I never get tired of trying on Nic's hat.

Some nice characters we encountered in the John Snow. I think this is Popeye and Bluto. Nice!
