The wanderer has returned....

Hello there!!  It's been a while hasn't it!  I can't believe it's been over 3 weeks since I last blogged!  I'm sure you are all wondering what I have been up to.

Well, to be honest, not much really.  I have been totally engrossed in the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy and almost everything else got put on the back burner.  Even my mother had to call me up to check if I was ok as I hadn't posted on facebook for a while! lol.

I have to say, I have loved the books and found myself hooked almost straight away.  I know alot of people hate them and find the writing awful and repetitive, but although yes, it is a bit repetitive, I didn't find it that bad.  No worse than say The Vampire Diaries books or alot of other 'chick lit' books that I have read.  I'm going to be honest and say that I find reading a trashy chick lit book like this much easier to read than a well written classic such as Jane Eyre.  I have tried to read Jane Eyre, but so far haven't been able to get as far as Chapter 5!

Other than the books, I have also got myself a new tattoo.  I already had a tattoo of the boys names on my inside wrist, but felt that it was a bit plain, so I got a design added on to it.  It has almost finished healing and I am really happy with it.  I am already planning my next tattoo!

I am doing pretty well at darts and have won a fair few of my games!  I am really quite please with myself at that.  I never thought I was very good and although I am still not fantastic, I am holding my own in my games (well apart from the week before last when I couldn't score more than 35 on each turn! lol). :-)

In other news, I am planning a girls night out in a couple of weeks.  I am a little disappointed with the lack of uptake from my friends, but so far there is me, my upstairs neighbour and possibly my little sister going out.  I am really looking forward to having a night out and in desperate need of letting my hair down.  My outfit is pretty much sorted and I have *finally* made a start on the handbag I have been planning to make with some gorgeous 'tea for two' fabric that I bought a few weeks ago.  I am hoping to finish the bag tonight, so hopefully will be able to post about it tomorrow.

Well, there you go, that is what I have been up to in the last few weeks.  Hopefully I will get my blogging mojo back and will be back much more often this month!
