What a rip off

After dithering about it for absolutely ages i finally made my mind up last night to go and see eddie izzard at the metro radio arena. And since i had spent the evening laughing my socks off at jason manford on the telly i decided i'd go and see him too at the city hall in newcastle. So i heads upstairs to book the tickets and to see where my seat was. Not to bad a seat for jason manford, but cos i've left it so long i'm up in the gods to see eddie izzard LOL. Mind you the booking fees and handling fees etc are a complete rip off, £35 to go and see eddie but by the time you add all the fees (including £2 to print your tickets off at home !!!!!! I went for the £2 and have them posted to me LOL) it has cost me £42.50! Jason wan't too bad but still an extra £3.75 on top of the ticket price for booking and handling! Just have to wait until may for eddie and ocober for jason now! Still it'll give me something to look forward to :-)

And on the plus side i lost two pounds this week to take me to over seven stone gone, 99.5lbs to be exact :-)

What a week!

Hard to believe this time last week i was all ready to head off to manchester to spend the weekend with dawn and mandy down in manchester. I had a fab time and the scrapping mojo has well and truly returned, so much so that i rejoined uks and when mandy said her team had a vacancy if i fancied joining i took the plunge and dived straight back into the fun of uks :-)  so i am now a member of the scrap apples team :-)

Had a hell of a week at work so will be glad when 5o'clock comes tomorrow night and i can relax for a couple of days, planning on doing a wee bit of xmas shopping and then lots of crafting, have lots of xmas cards to finish and some more scrapping, might even do the weekly and house challenge LOL

Away for the weekend

Having a weekend away in manchester this weekend, am meeting up with some of the ladies i talk to over on uks for a crop on saturday and sunday but decided to have tonight in the hotel as well so it wasn't too far a drive on the saturday. Have been all over the place cos i decided to head into skipton to visit the craft shop there, then came down to the hotel but too early to check in so went off to the runway viewing park at manchester airport and watched the planes take off and land for a bit before heading back to the hotel. Very impressed with my £19 a night room with it's huge kingsize bed and lots of windows and huge bathroom too :-) will probably just eat in the hotel tonight and have a drink in the bar before heading off to scrap all day saturday and sunday :-) let's just hope the mojo has returned LOL
