So be sure to pick a room with a nice flat untextured ceiling
I won't really do it! I usually buy him pretty good presents so I don't think balloons will suffice!
All of the ceilings in my parents house are like that too!! Imagine that, xmas morning, balloons popping everywhere, now that would have been funny!

I'll just be a good girl next time and give ALL my passwords to the other half. Is it sad that I can't wait to get them back after my exam this evening? Incidentally, 2 hours to learn an entire course should be enough right? Im normally not this lazy about exams but this year doesnt just hasn't clicked with me yet.

On the plus side, I went shopping yesterday to cheer me up and got 2 tops for a tenner each in Warehouse as well as a lovely necklace and bracelet (10 euro and 6) seems theyre ticketing their sale items early this year, they wernt even on a sale rail or anything.

Popped into M&S after work today and stocked up on food. I love opening the fridge and seeing loads of yummy things! Yay!

Had the biggest wagon of a model in at the shoot today. Two hours late, and in a foul humour.

Days like this are rather annoying.

Wagon is one of my favourite insults ever. Just brilliant!

I'm heading out to Dundrum tomorrow (if I see Liffey Valley again I'll cry) to get some last presents together, and somehow get an epiphany on what the OH would like?! I got him 3 small things already and over the past two days I've worked out that I got him something he needs (useful gifts FTL!), something he has acquired over the last week and something he doesn't really like. PERFECT!

Does anyone know if there's a Topman in House of Fraser?

Is there another House of Fraser than Dundrum? But yes there is a topman. Fairly small though. I always thought that FTL stood for For the loss but i dont think that fits (maybe cos I think useful gifts are the best gifts)

This is NOT a lesson for life. Trust me on this.
