Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Princess of China” by Coldplay & Rihanna

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Which Tastes Better?”

Anything to Note =

My mum and I walked quite far down the high road as part of my 365 cardio in the hopes of a home-depot-esque shop called B & Q was still open. I mean we walked anyway, or my mum came with me to do some walking, but we did think that this store would be closed by the time we got there as shops close early in the UK and its Saturday.

Well, turns out it was open! And we had an hour till closing so we were on a mission to find black out blinds for the baby’s room and perhaps a shelf unit, and some bathroom taps for my mum to take to Greece. Oh and maybe a night light also for the baby. Things are expensive so we were hoping to find some good deals here!

Sadly there is no Ikea around here, and when she had gone to Ikea in Greece they had nothing anyway!!

This shop was huge and we actually managed to find some light blue roller black out blinds and a tap set on sale for my mum for Greece. We failed at the shelf and the night light but still got some things successfully, and it was down to the wire with checking out one minute before the shop closed!

Anyway, then we had to make that long walk back annoyingly.

And as we were walking my mum made some comment about how she had thought something was in her foot. And while in Greece she had found a piece of glass in the moving process in her foot. But she was not in any pain now, but had commented about that.

So we got home. Made dinner. Just watched a movie while we ate, and I looked over at my mum’s foot that was perched up and saw her heel was covered in red!

I was like – blood blood blood! Are you okay????

Lights came on and we were both looking at her foot for like half an hour to see what was wrong. I brought up earlier that she had made a comment about something in her foot, and the glass in her foot in Greece story she had mentioned while we walked home.

But we could not see anything. And there was no pain.

I checked my feet. Was it me that was bleeding?? Nothing.

It was so weird!

It looked like dry blood right there on her heel.

Then I looked at it again after half an hour and it appeared to me as quite purple in color suddenly. Almost too purple to be blood….

And then it hit me!!!

Earlier in the day I had had some Ribena to drink there in the kitchen so I must have spilled some on the floor and my mum must have stepped in it!!!

And sure enough it was Ribena!!! Haha!!!

It was just so odd that we were talking about foot pain, and glass in the foot, and blood while walking home and then hours later it looked like her foot was bleeding coincidentally. Ironically. Funny how that happens – when you talk about something and then it happens!

Even if it turned out to be Ribena!!

(For those who don’t know what Ribena is – its a black currant drink that is delicious so go out and get some!!!!!)

What would I do without my blackberry??

No seriously!

I have had in and out reception since I have been in the UK and it just makes me realize how reliant I am on my blackberry working. And when I have no reception or messages won’t send it is really really annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!

What does that say about me though??

That I can’t live without my blackberry??…..TRUE!!!

That I feel lost without my blackberry on me and working??…..TRUE!!!

That I get super impatient and constantly try to change the networks in order to make my blackberry send messages faster or receive them or do something??……TRUE!!!

AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

But it’s the blackberry’s fault with its red flashing and beeping that calls out my name…

 

But…

But….

But….

Being a blackberry addict doesn’t make me a bad person, does it??

It means I am constantly stimulating myself and exercising my brain and of course you have to consider the finger and hand fitness!! HAHA!!

 

I am not alone though!!

Let’s face it – EVERYONE is addicted to their phones! Especially you iphone users!!! You can’t deny that 🙂

 


365 ONE: day 195…Go To – Go There – Do That – Day

Cardio was = On My Feet Working at the Harlequin Bar

Dance of the Day was = “I’m Down” by The Beatles

Anything to Note =

Today was just a random day, full of lots of different random things that kept me busy….

First up – had to get up as Stuart was up early to play golf with his brothers and dad, but before he left his mother made a full English breakfast…so I had to be up for that!!!!!! I could smell the bacon and goodies downstairs 🙂 Nothing beats a good English breakfast!! Yummy!!

 

After that – Stuart’s mum and I went to the nail salon. We didn’t think it would be that long but got stuck behind a family getting their nails done….oddly, it was a family of young girls getting their nails done while another family waited and watched. Which was sad actually, as these girls were young and obviously this other family of girls were not allowed to have them done so they just had to watch 😦 They did ask a few times and got a little upset and stroppy when they kept being told “No”. Although it was bizarre – as these girls were super young and getting fake nails on!! It must have been for some event like a wedding or something…or I hope so as it was just weird!

 

Then off to Costa coffee – with Stuart’s mum to meet up with her special someone.

Then – heading to Stuart’s brother’s house to have a quick hello and cup of tea with the three little cute kids since Stuart’s brother was off playing golf for the day.

And then – home for a quick change and some crumpets.

Before heading to the – Harlequin to help out behind the bar for a dance show they were having in the theatre which was supposed to have 400 some odd people attend. They were understaffed and so I said I would help out. Arrived there at 6pm and instead of having time to look around and figure out whats what I was thrown in as there were already people arriving and queuing up. At first I started by helping others and then there was just too many people so had to dive in and do orders too. It was funny as I of course had to figure out the cash register and where everything was and how much everything was as well as figure out what the UK “drink slang” meant and what it was!! So as I passed Stuart’s mum or others I knew who worked there I would ask them sneakily on my way!! It’s quite organized though there so soon caught on but it was just a funny process – should have been my video upload of the day!!! If only someone could have been filming from the side!! Especially with some muck-ups like giving the wrong change, typing in the item three times instead of once on the cash register, not being able to find the correct pint glasses for the different beers! 🙂

Anything to Note =

Yesterday, and what feels like today already, I have been quite uncomfortable in my stomach. Especially up near my ribs when I am sitting up – which is practically all day then!

I don’t know.

The little schmonkey is just moving up there or putting his feet there or his hands there or his butt – last time I had a sonogram before I left NYC the woman doing the tests told me that his head was on my right side with his hands and his feet and legs on my left side, and his butt, his little bottom, were up near my ribs it sounded like!!!!!!

Great so his bottom is up near me!! Is it his little bottom that is causing me this discomfort in my ribs then???

Get your bottom down little monkey!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bottoms in the air…clearly an Anastassiou 🙂

I am at 30 and a half weeks now – which is CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s weird now as the “bubbling” that’s going on is still constant but it sometimes feels super weird – weirder than normal – like the little schmonkey is moving – literally moving his whole self or something as it’s quite pronounced and bubbly-er!! Like sometimes there’s a bunch in a row!

STRANGE!!

Sometimes it makes me go “Whoah!!” out loud and freaks me out a bit!!!!! Or a lot!!!!!!

Let’s face it – it freaks me out A LOT!!


365 ONE: day 185…Will I Make The Plane??!!

I am leaving on a jet plane…

It’s LEAVING DAY!!!!  It’s TRAVEL DAY!!!!

CRAZY!!!

I think I’ve mentioned this before in another blog, but it’s funny because Stuart and I are leaving today – Stuart for only two weeks right now – but we’re not flying on the same flight! We leave within 20 minutes of each other from JFK, from different terminals, on different airlines – me on BA and Stuart on Virgin (which is way better!). And we arrive within 20 minutes of each other at Heathrow tomorrow, different terminals.

It worked out cheaper this way as I had to get on a BA flight to be on the same return flight as my mum when I come back to the States, but the cheapest flights were not BA, so Stuart did one of those cheap-not-know-you’re-airline sites and got on Virgin – so that was cool!

So we’ll see each other when we drive to JFK tonight  and then I will see him again when I get picked up tomorrow morning after we arrive! Strange!!

If only we could communicate across the ocean, thousands of miles up in the air!!

If only BBM worked while flying haha!!

I will miss him 🙂

But we get to save money so that’s a bonus!

If I make it to the plane as still haven’t packed and am at the office…..aHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

So this is my last day in America until JANUARY!!!

For just under 6 months!!!

In 2012!!

That’s weird.

Next time I’ll be back in the USA it will be in 2013 with a little schmonkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BIZARRE!!!!
