Eldest got the job! After months of looking for something part time to do alongside her 3rd year at Uni, after countless rejections, after a handful of interviews and no luck, she has landed a beauty. And I'm so proud of her! Waitressing at the Grand Central Hotel at Central Station in Glasgow. Frank Sinatra, the Queen, Bob Hope, Robbie Williams... countless famous faces have been there. Minimum wage but she gets to keep her tips...
Which is just as well considering the parental love and support don't stretch to any kind of financial help just now, so she's understandably planning how to spend it already! There's nothing beats a bit of parental pride is there?!
In other news I thought an update on my new routine, on my new, improved organised me might be in order... Farbulous thank you very much. Feeling much less busy and much more full of myself (in a nice, unassuming way of course...)
And so here's what I've been looking at all day:
Hits the ground then bounces back up again. Happy August everybody!
Not to worry, this is when indoor shopping centres with teenagers come into their own...!
Took Eldest shopping to buy essentials for the new job (and to buy a frock for a date). She did very well on the Sale front and on adding up the full prices of everything worked out she'd saved £91!!! 2 dresses, 2 pairs of shoes and a skirt. And I repeat - a saving of £91. Who on EARTH pays full price for these things? And if they do, how can they possibly afford it all?
My outfit of the day, on the other hand, all from charity shops, cost under a tenner!
Cooking wise I've realised something. I clearly don't like washing up cos everything I make seems to be in one pot!
Stir Fry before the noodles. with courgette, pepper, sweetcorn, pea, green beans and a few slightly wilted asparagus. Was quite nice. Not my best though.
And sweet potato curry tonight. Leaving me with leftovers for tomorrow and ...
Not much else!
Looks like I've plenty in the cupboards but I haven't...
Beans on rice cakes anyone?!
One good thing about going through the cupboards though is discovering the last of a bottle of ginger wine that just begged to be poured and enjoyed. Perfect with some athletics and worky Facebook.
Thank you so much for all the lovely comments to my last post by the way. Lovely compliments and a distinct lack of advice... I absolutely love this blogging malarky!
Be back soon!
