Where has the time gone?!

Wow, I can't believe I haven't blogged since Tuesday!  I think this is the longest I've gone without posting since I started my blog in March!

I've been so busy lately, it's crazy!  So I've not had much time for crafting, I'm afraid.

Wednesday night I was out drinking with friends - it was such a fun night with lovely friends.  Many of these were consumed by me:

I remain as classy as ever, with my drink of choice!!!!  And on a work-night too - shocking behaviour!  ;o)

Then Thursday night was a more cultured affair!  I went to see a Shakespeare play performed outside in a really pretty walled garden in Basingstoke, where I live.  It was organised by my work's sport and social club.  Luckily the weather was lovely, and we all had a picnic before the play started.  (Anything that involves food is a winner for me!!!)  The play was Love's Labour's Lost:

I'd never actually heard of it before, but thought I'd go along as it was something a bit different to do!  One thing I liked about it was that the costumes they wore were 50s style costumes, which was a nice touch.  Don't you just love the dress in that picture?!  I'd love to be swanning about in a dress like that!

The play was performed well, and there were some quite funny modern twists put in.  I'm not sure I'm the biggest Shakespeare fan, but you've got to try these things, and it was a nice pleasant evening.

Then Friday... I went to...

...the Take That concert at Wembley!  I was never that bothered about Take That the first time round, but I do like the new songs they've done since they got back together a few years ago.  I'd heard that their last concert was really spectacular, so when some of my friends were getting tickets to go to this one, I thought I might as well tag along!

It was really good fun - I really enjoyed it!  My first big concert!

Then yesterday afternoon/evening I was at a bbq with more lovely friends - I had such a good time, and have secured myself a very sexy t-shirt tan!!  Gorgeous!!!!!  ;o)

So... things have been pretty jam packed since my last post!!

Excitedly I have just noticed that I now have 49 followers... so only 1 to go until Giveaway time - woohooo!!!!  Hello and thanks to the new followers, and sorry to everyone for my lack of posts lately.

Talking of giveaways - the Krafty Cupcake is running an amazingly generous giveaway over at her blog:  here.  Check it out!

Sorry that there is nothing crafty in this post - I'll have to up my game for the next post!  (You'd think that since becoming single I'd have far more time for crafting, but I am so much more busy now than I used to be - I don't know quite what's happened!)

Hope you're all having lovely weekends!
