NHS WTF & 2019 Plans!

Hope everyone had a good Halloween and either got some awesome treats or made it fun for everyone else! I’m currently away visiting my fiancé for the last time this year -insert sad face here- and we’ve been having a lovely time as always.

We went to The Rasmus in London which over all was great even though they used FAR too many strobes right off the bat and we had to move from the front of the gig right to the back – even then I had to stand with my back to the stage because it was so bad. And that was while wearing my red lenses.

#MeToo

I know that I ultimately don’t owe anyone any explanations about absence and lack of posts; however I also have this innate inner need to do so – I don’t like being misunderstood.

Everything will be below the cut as there’s going to be talk of sexual assaults and harassment.

An Epiphatree! (I forgive you, you’re still a bastard though.)

Yes… That is a Simpsons Movie reference – because it felt right!

You ever have those moments where you read something and go through a thought process and –BAM– shit hits you like a truck?

Yeah, well I just had one of those moments at 2am while scrolling tumblr because I still can’t sleep at night (that is a WHOLE OTHER BLOG for the future. Not now.)

Why weight-loss praise makes me feel conflicted.

This is a subject that I haven’t come across myself, personally, aimed towards me. Ever. I’ve been through this second hand with friends who have lost weight, for whatever reasons, and it’s something I have spoken to them about; especially those within the BoPo community.

The mass consensus is that it leaves us feeling any/all of the following..

  • “Squicky”
  • “Squiffy”
  • Uncomfortable
  • Conflicted
  • Angry
  • At a loss
  • Generally confused

Life updates and stuff!

So, it’s that time of year again where I sit, or lay, and reflect upon the last year of my life. Thing I’ve done wrong and learned lessons from, things that went incredibly right through nothing but luck (😂) and things that I wish had never happened.

So what am I thinking of? What sticks out? Read on and find out.

Hotel Hell

It’s Sunday, October 1st and we’re much more relaxed than we were yesterday.

I booked us in originally for the Blair Victoria Hotel via amoma.com …. Which I was directed to from Hotels.com. Two nights for £116.47. We arrived after travelling all morning, couldn’t check in till 2pm so we put down our bags and then went to find food; we checked in at 2.30pm ish and crashed on the bed.

Woke an hour ish later and had a good look around…. And were pretty horrified.

This is the bottom of the door to the en suite. I actually slipped while trying to shower because there was no non-slip flooring and then the water pressure messed up meaning hot/cold and back again. So we gave up on that…

Also i dont want water from this to touch me…. Ever.

The above is the extractor fan in the bathroom.

So we complained and we were moved from floor 3, room 26 (6 sets of stairs btw!) To room 40 in the basement. It was bigger with a better bathroom. Upon closer inspection however….

Black Mould incoming. The beds were damp and we couldn’t have the window open or all we could smell was an overflow pipe.

We spent a good four hours trying to find another room, thankfully MIL is amazing and got us into a new hotel at very short notice.

The stupid thing is that the owners of the previous hotel KNOW about the problems they have because they’re “planning a refit next year”.

I’m now gonna have to fight to get a refund from the place i booked it through (who are saying i have to go through my travel agent…..).

Maybe Judge Rinder could help? 😂

OH ALMOST FORGOT!! The Blair Victoria is 2 stars…. The Collier’s Hotel, that we are now in (who are AMAZING) are a 1 star hotel and are SO MUCH BETTER. I swear this is what it feels like to be in The Ritz.
