Hey girlies, I am writing this with hours to spare before I’m up, up and away on my hols so I thought I’d better just do a quick summary. I have some scheduled posts going on my blog whilst I’m away but I will comment to all of you when I’m back. Or if I can sneak to an internet café whilst Darrens ♥ not looking then I will of course reply then. I’m not sure how I’m going to cope with no internet, no Twitter banter and no blogs to read! But I am super excited about going away. Our holiday to the Maldives last year was lovely but it rained for the entire second week, I didn’t come back the colour I wanted to be!

Slimming World – Ok, a few weeks back I told you I had finally reached my 1 Stone award which I did and I was so chuffed about it, so chuffed I drove straight to KFC and celebrated with a Zinger Tower Burger meal! *face palm*. It was also Darren’s ♥ birthday 2 days after that weigh in which mean a lot of Vodka got drunk and a lot of fatty horrible (lovely) foods got eaten. Hence me putting on 2 pounds and not going back to Slimming World. I really didn’t see the point in going to get weighed for them to tell me what I already knew then to try and fight getting the 2 pound off before I go away. I think I’m already in holiday mode! I haven’t put on anymore weight and fingers crossed I won’t whilst I’m away. I will do a summary when I’m back.

Go Ape – For Darrens ♥ birthday I took him to Go Ape at Leeds Castle in Maidstone Kent. It was all a big surprise and told him it was just me, him his sister and her boyfriend but when we got there 9 of our other friends were there too. I managed to pull it off with nobody blowing the surprise he was well pleased and I got a new dress out of it too! Go Ape is a tree top adventure place, with tree top high wires, tricky crossings using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire. The whole course takes 3 hours and was such a laugh, Darrens ♥ sister thinks I was a monkey in a former life. I’d go back tomorrow! Oooh Oooh Ahhh Ahhh!

Duty Free – I can’t tell you how excited I am at the thought of Duty Free shopping. Darren ♥ asked me what perfume I would be buying this year but to be honest I’ve got enough of that so will just be hitting MAC hard! On my list I have Vegas Volt, 109 brush, Strange Potion lipglass (if they have it) and a couple of eye shadows, I’m thinking Phloof! Or Crystal Avalanche.

Flip Flops – I have a flip flop obsession! I’m taking 8 pairs with me on my hols, the plan was to just take 2 pairs a white pair and a black pair. But I picked up 4 pairs in Primark for £1.50! They’re such a bargain and they weigh nothing anyway – right? Then I went to Asda and saw a pink and black pair for £2 each I just couldn’t resist!

Anyway that’s all for my summary, I do go on a bit don’t I! "Shut the ‘eff up woman!"

I’ll miss you all whilst I’m away, don’t forget about me!
