Goodness me! So much is going on! But i’m having a blast and feeling like the luckiest girl in the world…armed with a diary and maybe a bit of a wink.
How you all doing? Good?
Well Christmas is now over. It was the most wonderful time of the year. But now let’s pack up the tree and get on with the last few days of 2017. (These last few days are like ‘no mans land’ where you have no clue what’s going on, what day it is, or how to wear anything other than pyjamas anymore? I don’t wear pyjamas…I just wear diamonds. 😉 )
I need to make sure I blog every day. I keep getting caught up in the art of ‘good times,’ that I forget that I’m actually a writer and the whole point is that I tell you the story…That’s the part that I adore the most!! But whatever, i’ll get into the swing of it. I always do. It’s just been a crazy bit of time!
So, i’ve been spending a lot of much needed time with Ruby & Junior. We’ve had the most amazing chunk of ‘family bonanza’ ever. I guess everyone has! We’ve laughed. We’ve cried. We’ve ‘all sorts.’ It’s been great! I might have pulled my hair out a few times! It’s a single mum’s way. J However, I always look for the love in their eyes. And there’s been a million moments, over the last two weeks where they’ve been so filled with utter glee, that the world has been their absolute oyster. Ruby’s now decided she’s a vegetarian and Junior likes my boobs.
Junior: Can I give you a massage?’
Me: ‘Yeah. That’s so sweet.’
Junior: ‘Good. I’ll start with your boobies.’
I’ve had my LAST 2017 blow out!
I met up with the girls, Fairytale Blond, Double B and Mel on Boxing day.
This was after I had bumped into one of my good friends Jenna at the bar in Ego. I don’t know what happened? But I’m waiting to buy my drink. I’m stood there with my card out and a smile. Jenna rocks up to wish me a ‘Hiya’ and a ‘Merry Boxing Day’ (as I was about to do late lunch with my Mum, Dad and Brother) and as we got chatting, a guy to our left.. in a flat cap stated he would’ve bought my drink for me…THEN the guy to the right of me…DID! I know? How bizarre? He just said I looked really ‘patient,’ and wanted to buy me my drink? I’m the luckiest little shit! Little ‘Patient face’ Me! 😉
Me: ‘How did that happen? What’s gone on?’
Jenna: ‘It’s just Wunna innit. It’s just you. He bought you a drink and then lovingly went back to his wife. Lol. I’m meeting up with Danielle later..’
After the loveliest dinner with my family…(I ate crazy carbs, I never eat crazy carbs,) I tinkered my little self to The Carleton to meet the girls, where we popped open Prosecco bottles, drank fruity gin, shared *clinks* and told stories to each other that would burn your unholy ears, as fairy lights surrounded us and post Christmas bustle *busied* its way through the crowds.
I love the girls. They’re great. But as always…it got messy. They told me that we were DEFINITELY not going into town.
Fairytale: ‘We’re off into town!’
We ended up in town…and I hate going out around Pontefract! I always try and sneak off. Lol. But I didn’t, this time. I’m SO GLAD that I had those ‘earlier carbs.’ I did shots, like I was 20. (What am I even doing? I hate shooting anything. ;))
Drinks were guzzled. Dance floors were shimmied upon. Fairytale got brassy. (I love drunk Fairytale. She is the most innocent one out of the group, but give that girl a prosecco and she is SASSERILLA! Mel might have fallen over on the dance floor in a beautiful beige faux fur…She kinda popped back up, with her hands in the air with an ..
‘I’m alright! I’m up. I’m alright!’
…and Double B, who was my Team Companion for the evening, kept trying to BEG ME to stay out to the crack of dawn, whilst telling me she loves me and squeezing into my loo.
Double B: ‘Staay out!’
Me: ‘NO. I’M 37. I’M GOING HOME!’
Double B: ‘Well if you’re going home. I’m going home!’
Double B: ‘I don’t wanna go home!! Staaaaaaay OUT!’
Me: ‘GET LOST.’
Anyway, we drank at the Green Dragon, we danced in The Malt Shovel…We ginned it up at Tap & Barrel…We even wiggled around the Barley Mow for a bit.
Me: ‘Why is everyone old in here?’
Double B: ‘You’re not even the oldest one! Guess how old she is?’
Me: ‘Why do you always play the Guess How Old I Am Game???’
We even bumped into one of my old friends Benny P. He’s straight, but like you’re ‘Gay Best Friend.’
Benny P: ‘I’ll go to Biggies, if you’re going..’
Me: ‘I’m not going….’
Benny P: ‘I’m off home then…’
Then Gary’s Mel called ‘Fairytale.’ Prince Jonathan…Fairytale’s Boyfriend, showed up at the pub, AFTER a call…and I looked down at my phone..ofcourse hours later… and Gangsta J (Double B’s boyfriend) had Facebook called ME!
You know you’re all in trouble when that happens. Lol
But it was such a great night. We all just had a final 2017 blow out
The taxi home cost a flipping BOMB and Double B made the executive decision to start pretend fights with everyone in the queue…before buying chips.
Me: ‘Stop shouting things at them…cos you’ll get away with it, but they’ll turn around and have a go AT ME! Lol!’
Earlier in the night, we had sang our personal rendition of the beautiful song..
‘Move Bitch Get Out The Way’
…on the patio at The Carleton, for the night stars to enjoy.
It really was a treat. There are certainly Grammy Awards in our future. I should’ve plonked a stiletto out on the floor in front of us, for tips.
We were lost in a world of girl!
Such a fun night.
HOWEVER NOW….that’s it. I’m done. Party season is OVER. The corks are back in the wine bottles.
*Cheeky Sip. Cheeky Sip. Wedges Cork BACK IN*
The tinsel has been bundled away until next time.
And being a kitten who DOES NOT DO ANYTHING for New Years Eve…(People are always astounded by that, as i’m obviously meant to be one to be waving the flag of ‘party’ like a hooligan in heels and diamonds.) But i’m not. I can’t be bothered.
If you are out…I KNOW that you’ll have an AMAZING TIME. It’ll be fun! Many moons ago, in LA, where I did my 20’s…I rolled into some New Year? I can’t remember which year I rolled into? But it was at 10am on Jan 1st, in a taxi, with my then roommate Justin, with some pornstar in the back, that he had found and utterly fancied. They did actually date for a while. (We were both even in sunglasses because it was SUCH A BRIGHT Hollywood morning. )
At that point, I decided that I would never EVER rock into a fresh new year…UNFRESH.
I don’t mind a few drinks at home with friends, or AT friends, or with family and spirit. I’m fun. I love celebrating.
But for me…the clock strikes twelve and I will sail freshly and peacefully into 2018, like some kind of Oriental Goddess. (Something like that anyway? You get the picture!)
I’ve had a great year and i’m gonna take you back through it soon. I kinda like staying in the present, as you just don’t know what lies ahead and the past is just a chipper memory now. If you stay in the moment and enjoy it, you’ll always be happy. We still have a few days left of 2017. Don’t let life slip through your fingers. You’re a long time gone. Enjoy it!
Love! Live! Celebrate Being You! It’s the only thing you can do BETTER than anyone else!
I have an exciting 2018. Everything’s NEW. Everything’s Snazzy. I have everything crossed!
You are going to be shocked!
Thank you for all the love you’ve been giving me. I adore it, with every inch of kitten soul! Thank you!
I’m getting a ton of messages from people who are wanting to meet me, or be part of the blog.
I will tell you that I have a TON of ‘Meet & Greets’ next year, where you will have the opportunity to ‘selfie take’ and embrace a bit of Wunna Land. And yes, you will also have the opportunity to be part of the blog and come play ‘Diaries’ with me.
The best chick that i’ve met recently, was a girl by a bubble gum machine in Doncaster, who not only had a huge stem of brussel sprouts sticking out of her posh handbag, but also asked me for change to buy sweets. Lol. She wasn’t a child. She wouldn’t tell me her name. She was a grown up and hilarious. A bit odd. But I do like the odd ones, don’t I. 😉 She was SO odd, that my Mother became a little alarmed, SO ALARMED that she followed me for the next 40 steps, incase I got GOT, my a lady with brussel sprouts. Lol. (Mums eh!)
I look forward to seeing you all.
All the loves….
Thank you for following my life!!
