Hello :)

Hey! Just a chatty sort of post today as I'm currently lying on the sofa feeling a bit wet lettuce-y and rather sorry for myself! Once again I've picked up a cold/cough from the lovely kiddies at school and this, coupled with evil wisdom tooth pain, is making me feel a tad pap. I am enjoying the sunny weather of late though, as well as the fact that I've got another week off work after Friday, so it's not all doom and gloom!
 I don't really have many plans for my week off apart from some tidying- maybe. Hopefully I'll get to spend some time with my friends and family and generally have a good break. Actually, I've just remembered, I've got my first physio session for my back on Tuesday so that's something concrete. I'm a little nervous about it as I don't really know what to expect. I'm glad to be finally getting it looked at though as I've had back pain for years now (I suspect from working in day nurseries and the constant bending and lifting and carrying) and it can really get me down, especially when I get in from work and I just want to relax on the sofa but can't because every position hurts! We shall see!
Some more exciting news is that we've finally settled on where we want to go this year on holiday and have booked the flights. We are now going to Budapest for a week at the end of July, getting back just in time for my 25th birthday, which is also the same day as my friend's wedding. I can't wait! It does mean however that I will have to be super organised and plan my outfit in advance. I'm already having a nosey online but I'm quite picky about dresses and I don't want to spend a lot as my holiday will probably have wiped me out by then. I'd appreciate any recommendations for any stores/sites! Back to the holiday, it was really hard to decide on where to go as me and Stuart have quite different ideas of what makes a good holiday! He doesn't like lounging by the pool or beach as much as I do, preferring to be more active, so a city break seemed a better option. Plus Budapest have the thermal baths so I can still buy a bikini and have a dip. I need to shift a few pounds though as I'm not feeling my best lately. I wouldn't mind so much if I was more in proportion but not having much, at all, up top, means my gut to chest ratio is somewhat unsatisfactory at the moment so I'll have to work on that! I'd love to have a proper lazy beach holiday too with a friend but that's probably rather greedy of me! Unless I win the lottery or something equally as unlikely!
Are you looking forward to anything exciting? Hope you are all well!

Here are a just few pics from my last brief trip to Budapest in 2012. Can't wait to have a proper explore!
