5 things that annoyed me yesterday and 5 things that didn't

5 Things that annoyed me yesterday
1. I discovered that there are many, many things I left off my to-do-list. Now I have to start another one. This is why I hate lists
2. I realised my new short hair cut looks awesome when done and wearing makeup but makes me look like a boy when I don't wear makeup. I either need to put more effort in or buy some cleavage
3. I bought some wax strips. Did a bit of waxing and then realised I should have stopped a few strips ago
4. I couldn't stop eating. I was an eating machine. NO, I am not pregnant, just a really, really greedy girl
5. It was really windy. This is why August is my worst month. It's alway so windy. My hair looked even worse when windblown and standing up full of static
This is a self portrait, please feel free to take the image and use it willy nilly 

5 Things that made me happy yesterday:

1. The two blind pimples on my forehead went away instead of turning into horns. I was a little concerned about that
2. It was magazine Monday. I picked up my two favourite trashy mags and they were full of trash
3. I crossed everything off my to-do-list (before I discovered my list was sorely lacking)
4. I managed to fit in a 10k run. This was only on the tready but I watched a movie that I need to watch for a review so it was good multi-tasking
5. I received my Finalist Certificate for 'The new Business of the Year' in the mail

What annoyed you about your day?

I am worried about that Khloe and don't even get me started on poor Rob.
Yes, I am serious now.

  2. Congratulations, babe! So proud of you! :)

    There were many things that annoyed me yesterday. Mainly myself because I got grumpy for no apparent reason with my lovely husband, who then tried to jolly me out of my grumps by teasing me. Um, dude, have you learnt nothing?!

    But it also made me very happy that he kept trying to entertain me, despite me being so horrid. x

    1. I hate it when you get the grumps and someone around you tries to perk you up. I like to enjoy my grump until I am ready to emerge. I hope you are happier today :)

    Congrats on getting your certificate :)

  4. Your self portrait looks a bit like one I did of Prince Harry in the buff. I'm sure you don't look like a rogue royal!
    Congratulations on your award!

  5. Oh my, a 10km run?
    How do you motivate yourself? Seriously, I would like to know!
    I'm just so exhausted with my two children that whenever I have a moment I can be found sleeping or just lounging which I need to change!!

    Well done on the 10km run and finalist certificate

  7. I had to work, which sucked as Mr. Mandie and the Small Child got to stay home. The barista who gave me a discount improved the day (I like to think it's because he might have a crush on me, but I think it's more because I was wearing my work ID tag and he thought I worked in the centre) Congrats on the certificate - go you! x

    1. He definitely has a crush on you. They don't hand out discounts willy nilly. Rx

  13. I finally bought an iPhone and then spent over an hour on the phone, plus a trip to the phone shop attempting to be able to use it.. Still having unresolved 'engineering' issues.

    Had a glass of wine and half a packet of reeces peanut butter cups and that made it all OK :-)

  14. ha ha you are a crack up.. i'm also glad your blind pimples didnt turn into HORNS ha ha I always rejoice when this happens!!! I really doubt you look like a boy, but I am scared of cutting my hair short in case i get those feelings and then that will be crap and i will have to buy a wig.

    1. What am I saying? It's all coming back to me now. Just remembered that I got told off at Godfreys for not getting my vacuum cleaner serviced. Serviced? Vacuum? What?!

      Delete
    2. What, who would know to service that? Next they'll be talking about washing machines, dryers and cars. Let's put our feet down now!

  18. The award is so exciting. I have no doubt you'll take out your category. As for making lists? I make one every day just so I can cross things off and feel I've achieved something. Sometimes I'll even write something on my list that I've already done, just so I can cross it off! True story ;)

  21. I always get one major forehead pimple a month and often right in the middle. Its a joke on me I'm sure :-)

    I've had a pesky cold for about 3 weeks and I felt terrible yesterday. Last week I had a great week for exercise - one jog, one swim, one yoga sesion, one surf - now I feel like I need to rest. So annoying, just want to feel great again.

    1. I am so glad I am not the only one :)

      I hate it when you are motivated but too sick to exercise. It's cruel. I hope you feel better soon. Rx

  22. I love your self portrait Rachel. I'm sure you don't look like a boy, you're way to glam.

    Congratulations re 'business of the year'!

  23. Well congrats on that awesome certificate. But even more impressive is that you can run on a treadmill and watch a movie at the same time. If I am not staring at my feet or at least concentrating really hard I fear I am going to stumble and be flung to the corner of the room. I must be very un-co.

    1. I need the distraction. You need to build up the tready multi tasking. I can also read and respond to emails now too :)

  26. I never read trashy magazines unless I'm at the hairdresser, and seeing as that hasn't happened for ages, I have no idea what's happening with Rob and Kristen. Please tell me it's not true?

    Also, I want to see a pic of you with boy hair? K?
