Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone!

It is currently 11 in the ay-em the 1st of January 2013 =) I am happy to say that I am without hangover!

I worked yesterday, finished at 7, bought alcohol (Ruby Port and blue WKD to make cheeky vimto and some sparkling wine for midnight) and some party snacks and headed home. I was so so so tired, I did try to nap but it didn’t work, so at around 8:30pm me and Christine poured ourselves a drink and watched some of my youtube videos for the past year. We have had such a fun year! We’ve been lucky to go to many places and watching the videos really reminded me how much fun we’ve had and how many laughs and memories we have shared this past year. We agreed to make this year even better.

We played Rayman for a bit, then Lilly came home from work around 10:30pm. We got all dressed up and I decided we should write down our fav youtube videos and songs of 2012, so we did that, we down stairs where we plugged my iPad into the speakers and played each song, drinking, singing, dancing and vlogging of course! We saw the New Years in listening to ‘Call Me Baby’ haha, which is a cheesy but fun song! Christine wanted Gangman Style but I said NO NONONONONONONONO. I don’t think I could live in a year where that was the first song I heard. 

It was A LOT of fun! I have about 1 hour and 30 mins of video to look through and edit! Help!

Anyway, this is the dress I wore. It’s from ASOS, you can click here to buy it =)
The Necklace is from Accessorize, I got it about 3 months ago and it is not on the website =( and the shoes are about 3 years old from Internationale.

Trying to point at shoes, complete FAIL!
This is my back lolz

Here are a couple of pictures of me and the housemates =)

Oh oh, in other news, on Sunday at work one of the pipes burst. While I was the only manager in the shop. At least we were closed but there was water pouring EVERYWHERE all over the electrics and I was terrified. Everyone was asking me what to do and I am like I DON’T KNOW I AM PROBABLY NOT THE BEST MANAGER TO BE DEALING WITH THIS SITUATION. I logged it in with the help desk but they were saying they were not going to be able to get somebody out. I was like ‘you don’t understand, this isn’t just a drip, water is piling in’. It was all over and was quickly flooding the shop, down the aisles, down checkouts and down produce. I had to call the Store manager and he ended up coming down and loads of us spent like 3 hours trying to sweep it out of the front door until the man got here. I was so happy when the store manager came in, it meant it was not my responsibility anymore. I thought we were all going to die when the lights started flashing off and on so I got somebody to turn all the main power off. Disaster. Anyway, I had to stay back late to help sort it out, play with all the servers to get all the computers and checkouts back up and running and when I came in the next day, the temporary fix the man put in place had gone and the water was pouring in again. I wasn’t duty manager anymore so I just looked at it and thought ‘I am so bored with this now’ and walked off. One of the workers got stuck in the cherry picker as the water was running onto it. The controls of it are in the top. He had to get a ladder to get down and now the cherry picker is just stuck in the shop. Ha.

I have a few photos ๐Ÿ˜‰

In other news, apparently ASOS is not an acceptable word on Word Tricks =(

And there was a lady bird in my room the other day. WTF?

Anyway, I am going to get into the shower now, get dressed and attempt to edit this video! I also need to write out my post for the Liebster Award which L kindly nominated me for =) 

How was everyone elses new year! Sorry for the long post, I forgot how babbly I am. Maybe this is why I stopped keeping an online diary? I can talk a lot but not really say a lot. SADFACE.

    Happy new year! I’d be equally rubbish in the water situation, I’d have no idea what to do… Sounds like you had a fun NYE xx

    • January 1, 2013 / 6:21 pm

      I’m just happy the store manager answered the phone and came and rescued me. I may have cried otherwise!

    Happy New Year, looks like you had fun. Did my ‘forgotten songs’ inspire you to round up all yours from this year, sounds like a cool idea and good way to see in the New Year. You have changed the layout of your blog, it looks good ๐Ÿ™‚ your icons for FB links etc have died though, you might need to redo them, the links work but the pictures etc have gone.

    That sounds like a fun time you had at work, I can’t believe you photographed it!! Lol, didn’t anyone say “WTF Corinne, what are you doing photographing it?!” lol, funny/

      Haha, yeah it did actually!

      I have changed the layout. YAYAYAY. Are you sure they don’t work, it’s fine on mine, I tried it on 2 different browsers and then I tried it on my PC as well as mac and it seems to be working. HELP!

      It’s okay, I can take photos if I want I was in charge =)

    honestly love how fashionable you are!! :DD you’ve inspired me to want to keep a track on my outfit choices for this year. let’s see how long that holds up as i have this annoying tendency to never finish what i start. #:

    perhaps it’s the way you structure your sentences that gives your “englishness” away. lol. i’ve always preferred english authors over american ones so it’s maybe easier to identify the sentence-structure style. bit of a task for me to explain… never been good at those (explanations, that is). at any rate, it’s nothing against you. in fact, i might just like reading you(r blog) a tad more because of the fact that you’re english(!) biased, i know. but so what? (;

    thanks for the suggestion on where to get a good download.
    and i see your new year’s was well-spent!! no hangover, good going.

    congratulations on the award nomination. well deserved, i’d say.

    HAPPY 2013, LUV!

    • January 1, 2013 / 6:57 pm

      Hurrah, I will be looking out for your outfit posts for sure!

      I’ve never really thought about how I structure my sentences before. Ha. I guess I am rather a Yorkshire lass!

      nuffnangx is a blogging/blogger’s community. not too sure if they have a uk/eu division but i guess you could check? http://www.nuffnangx.com lol. i changed my commenting system to support my participation. (: and, it’s going to be interesting for me, too i think (with regards to outfits) as i’m planning to 180 my entire wardrobe. we’ll see how that turns out. i’m trying to head in a different direction style-wise although i haven’t entirely given it a lot of thought just yet. i think it’s going to be more dark colours, sombre, “grown-up” stuff that’s not necessarily goth. lol.
