It's Been A While!

I've neglected this a bit in the past week.  I've been on placement working from 2pm until 8pm.  I love working those hours because I can have a lie in until 11 or 12 and don't go into work feeling all sleepy like I usually do in the mornings.  Well, that's normally the plan, but I was busy doing stuff most mornings last week.  Then it's nearly 9pm when I get home and the evening has already gone, especially by the time I've made dinner and sat down, it's nearly time for bed.  I was working in A&E though so it was interesting, I loved it!

I hope you all had a good Valentine's Day! Ok, I don't celebrate? it.  I hate it and really don't see the point.  Yes, I am a Valentine's scrooge.  I remember last year my boyfriend convinced me into going out for dinner and I hated it because we sat at a tiny, cramped table, in a very noisy restaurant, inches away from other couples, and the food took so long to come because there were so many people there.  This year I was working late so me and the boyfriend decided to swap pancake day with Valentine's Day.  So on Tuesday we made pancakes, which we really had no idea how to make, but they turned out yummy anyway.  Except the one that I made.  That one went quite wrong.  Then we are going out for dinner whenever pancake day is meant to be.
My Mum sent me a few little Valentine's gifts.  One of which included this lovely necklace.  I can't wait to wear it!

New Clothes!
One morning during the week I decided to go on a bit of a shopping spree.  Luckily the only things I saw that I wanted to buy were from Primark so I didn't end up spending too much money.  I NEEED to save money!  I bought two tops.

The green top was £5, not too sure on the cream one but it wasn't much more than that, maybe £8.

I also bought some hand cream.

I am always on the look out for different hand creams because I get terribly dry skin.  Especially when I am on placement because I have to wash my hands loads of times a day and they get really red, dry and sore.  So I thought I would try this hand cream.  It smells lovely!  Really bannanery.  I really do like this hand cream, it's very thick and does the job quite well.  Within a few uses it transforms my dry hands and makes my skin much softer.  Is it worth the £9.99 I paid for it?  I'm not too sure.  In my opinion it is quite pricey.  I would definitely buy this again, just not very often due to the price, but then I think it will last quite a long time as the cream is quite thick so you don't need to use much.

What else have I been up to?
I've been going to the cinema quite a bit recently.  There isn't really much else to do around here anyway.  The two most recent films that I have been to see are Man On A Ledge and The Woman In Black.  I really enjoyed Man On A Ledge.  It is as the title says, it's about a man on a ledge, and quite often during the film I found my stomach doing flips as I really don't like heights.  I got quite drawn into this film and really liked it.  I went to see The Woman In Black last night.  It's a 12A.  I am 21 and I found it really quite scary.  I get scared quite easily and have a fear of dolls (usually old ones) and clowns which this film included - I know this is a weird fear but they really freak me out!  Me and the boyfriend ended up holding onto each other as it had quite a few jumpy moments.  It was very easy to guess the storyline and I always knew what was going to happen next.  But the mood was set really well and I just found it really quite a good film.  I would recommend it.

I am now going to catch up on the Hustle while lying in bed drinking tea.
