Hands up if you made it over a life-hurdle yesterday? No, I still haven’t got a job, they’ve actually been a bit slow on the ground so far this week.
I passed my driving theory test! No more dumb DVD revision, it was the revision part of it that made me wish I’d done it when I was 17. I haven’t had any kind of exam in over four years, and I hope that that was the last one I have to do. I was so nervous, not just because a load of questions were ones that had never come up while I was revising, but also because it would cost silly-money to retake it if I did fail, but I didn’t so it’s out the way. I got 44 on the theory and 56 on the hazard perception.
So, after visiting the Job Centre yesterday, which turned out to be fine because I’ve switched advisors, I had a ton of time to kill before going on to the test centre. An annoying amount of time in fact, not enough to go home, but too much to spend mooching around. What better way to waste time though than to shop?
I actually was pretty bad yesterday and spent more money than I should have, therefore basically breaking one of my New Year’s Resolutions. However, up until then I hadn’t really spent any money apart from a couple of things in the Christmas sales and Christmas presents… I’m not going to try and justify it, yesterday was a crap-money day.
I even bought room-spritz, just to come one step closer to my free Body Shop gift..
Anyway, here are a selection of the things that I bought, which I like, and although I feel remorseful for my bank account, I think I made some wise choices, anyway, I had a bit more money than I thought I would so…

I had no idea that the Yumi sale would be so amazing. Yumi is usually a brand that I tend to stay well away from because usually I see everything as overpriced, although what I really mean is that I can never afford anything. But I saw these two bargains and I had to have them, they’re such nice shapes and really flattering, with quite original patterns. I know, I know, another horse-print dress, but I promise, promise, promise, this is the last one and this one is a bit different. I love the cityscape one, the birds fly really high on the back. I kind of get the usual £40+ price tag at Yumi, because they’re both really well made, but I’m still umming and ahhing out of principal because I think they are more realistically worth what I paid for them in the sale… then again, I’m poor so what do I know?
I’m so, so nervous for this interview with Mirrorpix on Thursday, but excited, because what if I get it? I don’t think I would want to move out on my own though, going back to a house that just has a cat and no one else screams loneliness and potential madness to me.
