Logo Billionaire Review

Yesterday was Christmas and as a tradition at the night time we play board games in the evening. One of us usually gets a new board game as a gift and that is the game we play. This year it was Logo Billionaire.

I had seen this game advertised and if i'm honest i was not very excited about it.

We popped the box open and got going, like all new games it was complicated to begin with. Nobody really understood the rules and what we were supposed to be doing. The aim of the game is to create companies and earn a Billion (I think).

We muddled through and after a little while and a little wine we were beginning to enjoy ourselves. 

In all I will not say that this is my favourite game it is no contest Monopoly wins every time but it could be more fun if you have a proper sit down with the rules.

Working on Christmas day

For those of you who like me are working on Christmas day or have worked Christmas day this year and are feeling a little bit glum about it, Cheer up.

For those of you who like me have had a strop and a paddy about having to be professional and wear anything other than pyjamas on this day that should be dedicated to getting drunk eating chocolate and stuffing our faces, Don't be sad.

To begin with i hated the idea that I had to work, I work in a hotel you see and we do not close EVER!! I did not want to read about how every one was enjoying themselves on facebook and how many presents everyone had because I was miserable. So far though my Christmas has actually turned out great, I got up early and opened my presents for my Fiance and my Mum and Dad ( Brothers included) . I opened the presents that my crazy family had got for my puppy. Had some Breakfast ( Crumpets - YUM) and set off to work.

Everybody is in the Christmas spirit and it has made working not so bad.

At 3 pm when I finish I will be heading over to My Fiancés parents to have dinner and open more presents. There will be food and games and surprises i'm sure.

I get to see my family on Boxing day to eat more food, play more games and give them their presents ( which i love doing just as much receiving gifts).

I guess the moral of my little post is to make the most out of a bad situation, Having to work has made the time i am at home more special.

for those of you that do not have to work today MERRY CHRISTMAS

and those of us that do MERRY CHRISTMAS WEEK :)

Book Writing

I would love to be crafty like many of the other bloggers but i was gifted with musical talent instead. 

I am however gifted with a great imagination ( I am just not very good at putting a plan into action) so long story short.....

I am thinking of taking up writing. I wanted to write for fun. I was kind of inspired by the series i am reading at the moment by Addison Moore. 
it made me feel like i could do this too.


So what i am wondering is if any of you guys write? Any tips?

Things that scare me when I am by myself at night time!

So last night Jon (my fiancé) was working nights and it was my first night in our new flat. We are still moving things over from our old flat and so we do not have the television on the wall. I do not usually watch a lot of television especially in the evening so I did not turn it on and here is what I realised......

I am a huge wimp!!!

Here is a list of everything that scared me.

* shadows
* that it was too quiet
* there were unusual noises
* lots of corners that bad men could hide behind
* Noises I made myself
*my phone ringing

Obviously I was a very nervous person last night but I don't know how I would cope if something actually scary happened!

What scares you at night time?

Manchester

This weekend me, my fiancé and our best friends took a trip to Manchester. We went to see the market which was very festive but extremely busy, we were literally walking around like sardines. 

I met up with my Nana, Auntie and Cousin. We found out that my cousin is having a baby!!!!! so very exciting. we had a lovely lunch and did a lot of catching up as since i moved down south i don't see my family as much any more.

I think that Manchester is the best place to do Christmas shopping and catch up with friends. 

We ate dinner at a very funky TGI Fridays and ended the night in club AXM which is an amazing place to be cheesy!!

Roller skating disaster

Me and a friend have been looking at fun ways to work out without having to go to the gym. She came up with the idea of roller skating at a roller disco. 

Now to be honest I wasn't very excited as I'm not very good at ice skating and I imagined it would be much of the same. 

We arrived at the venue and bought our tickets, swapped my comfy converse for some not so comfy blue roller skates. The hall was set out like a school disco everyone was sat around the edges so I got up. 

Slowly I started to skate around the ring. About halfway around I lost control and fell to the ground. I landed straight on my tail bone owch. I got up and carried on with both my bottom and my ego bruised. 

After the incident I continued skating And had lots of fun I would recommend it to anyone wanting a fun way keep fit..
