♥ Gel nails
The day my fiancé and I were due to go on holiday I decided to treat myself to some gel nails which I'd enviously eyed up on other women for ages. Unfortunately, the only salon open wasn't my salon of choice, but I was desperate to finally get them done. The lady didn't speak English very well, and this being my first time in a nails salon, not being able to communicate properly was a bit of a problem. I'd planned on overlays but she said my nails weren't the same length so she clipped them all off (to my dismay, I'd been growing them specially) and on hindsight, she could have simply filed them all to the same length. She placed the horrific white tips which I'd been hoping to avoid halfway down my nail and left them square, so I was left with stumpy looking fingers. They grew out quickly, and having them taken off was a pain and cost yet more money. Never again!
♥ Health Scares
My fiancé and I had a bit of fright the other morning. As I got up to hug him as he left for work, I fainted and collapsed on the floor, my body started shaking and apparently I was also making weird noises. I eventually came around and was very bewildered about where I was and how I'd got there, it was all very scary.
We went to the doctor who reassured us and said fainting can sometimes lead to the body twitching so luckily it's nothing serious and apparently it's quite common for 'young, slender women' to faint. Still, I'm booked in for an ECG just to check all is ok. I've had dizzy spells and occasional faints for the past 7 years and have been to see the doctor about it numerous times before, but there's nothing you can do about it so I suppose I just have to accept that standing up and stretching result in seeing stars for a couple of seconds.
♥ Looking for a job
The job market is crapola at the moment and I'm struggling to find a new one. I want to get into marketing but it's that rubbish situation where you can't get a job without experience, but you can't get experience if no one gives you a job. Grrr.
