Hi honey-pies, how are you all? I've been AWOL these past couple of days I know...I've just been feeling a little stressed (brought on myself). I know most people will wonder how I can possibly get stressed seeing as I don't have all that much going on in my life-but I've just been procrastinating about doing stuff, rather than getting it done. I've been more tired than normal lately too, so it's taken more of an effort to get anything done. That said, it's nothing major, I'm just going to have to start making lists (uh-oh the dreaded list making) to get things done, not for the "seeing what you've achieved" and all that bull, but just to keep me on track. Anyway, there's so many posts I've wanted to write and just never find time or feel motivated enough to do-so I'm going to try and catch up this weekend (I have 3 The Shoe Girl Diaries posts to make too). Here's a pic of me-just to fill the gap seeing as Blogger still haven't rectified the spacing issue!
It was my little sisters b'day yesterday (29, scary) and I've been looking after my little nephews so haven't really had time to do anything other than check emails (which I have a ton of), so I do have some excuses. Can you believe my oldest nephew (4) said yesterday "Aunt Gemma is so old she should probably be Great Granny"? In a way it was cute that he remembers my Granny, in another way I almost smacked him-cheeky little brat. This came right before he told his little brother to "put away Aunt Gemmas broomstick" referring to my walking stick! What pleasant little boys I have eh?! Anyway, as way of compensation for my lame post making, here are some discount codes and things that are floating around...

River Island-you won't believe this, have an extra 50% off sale items for a limited time, an EXTRA 50% off! Thankfully the stuff I bought last week has sold out anyway so I've not made a loss there, but I re-ordered those gold shoes I sent back ages ago (a size bigger this time obvi) and also got these green ones too (thought they were a similar shape, so ordered the 6 as well) plus a whole load of other things I don't really need but they were like £2 or £3 and I couldn't resist!! Unfortunately they didn't have the bags I liked...
