I'm Never gonna Stop the Rain by Complaining...

A weekend of rain...

I've realiced I'm really thankful me and Karl chose this apartment when we were looking for a new place. We looked at a few places that were much, much smaller, but only about 50-100 € cheaper. I could not have survived the oh so many rainy days of Ireland inside a small cubicle with a man and a child on 3 out of 4 weekends in a month.

I've had a rough day though, me and Karl have been fighting a bit. It's never fun to argue, but all relationships have good and bad days. 

I am tired and worn out and will be headed to bed.

Scrubb, scrubb, scrubb

Yesterday was spent shaving, scrubbing and lotion rubbing: I tried self tanning cream for the first time.

I was very, very careful to be very thorough when exfoliating and tried to put very minimal amounts of the cream on my face. I didn't get any streaks, but it did seem a bit strong on my face.

I was more than happy with the results of the hair removal cream I used though. I had tried Veet a few years back, but the cream had the most diabolical smell and it left my legs red, irritated and extremely sore. This time around I didn't have to worry about not being able to walk as the cream didn't leave my skin feeling like a battlefield. I guess they developed their product in these years I haven't used it. The only thing that bothers me about using a cream like this is that it doesn't remove all-all of the hair. It usually leaves some left that you have to finish off with a razor. No - I do not like shaving.

I guess a girl cannot have it all. One thing I will have though is another episode of Desperate Housewives before I go to bed. Goodnight...

Goodbye Summer, Hello Irish Rain

I'm a bit disappointed the summer seems to be over in Ireland already. It has been doing nothing but raining the last few days and temperatures have been low. It was Karl's birthday today but the weather was dreary and we stayed in, having a cozy evening of movies and takeaway.

Scratchy doesn't seem to care, she looks comfortable and contented.

Summer, Sun and Excuses

Rules everyone should abide to when blogging:

1. Do not start only to not continue.
2. Do not blog once a month with opening sentence being one of the following:
*I'm so sorry I haven't blogged lately
*I'm not dead yet, I just haven't blogged lately

As for me, I haven't been particularly busy. I have been doing more than usually and spending days in the sun and on the beach, but I wouldn't say I have been busy with constant risk of stroke. I have however realized I'm in need of a holiday, risk of stroke or not. As the finances are at the moment it looks as if me and Karl will have to wait 3-4 months before we can go anywhere though. We might get something scraped together, but I'm not getting my hopes up. Karl's car has been very expensive the last few weeks with repairs, insurance and tax eating up a lot of our paychecks. 

I will stop my yearning for a week by a pool and post two of my favourite songs at the moment.

More from me soon!

I really love the music video for "California Gurls". I wish I lived in a wonderland, don't we all?
