I have just realised it has been about 3 months since my last post! On realising this, it also highlighted how busy those months have been.
So what have I been up to lately… Well I only went to Ibiza for a hen weekend last month! 3 days in 30 degree sunshine in an all inclusive hotel, with an itinerary including clubbing in Amnesia (Cream night), a VIP day at Ocean Beach and a final night watching the Balearic sunset from the beach at Cafe Del Mar. A fab, though very tiring, time had by all! True to form though, I was happy to get back to my house, with my own bed & more importantly my cats! I miss them after just one night away, so imagine how I was after 4?! (Don’t be surprised, I’ve already mentioned the crazy cat lady in me 🤗 ) I guess looking forward to getting home was also partly due to learning that I feel very differently in a group of 10, when I don’t know everyone, compared to a group of my own close friends. Considering it was a group of girls, I must say they were all great & I genuinely liked them all. However, it turns out that I struggled more than I thought I would, despite this. I knew 5 of the girls (close to 2 & more “friends of friends” with the other 3) and had never met 4 of them. Like I said, they were all great & I really liked them – but I still wasn’t able to fully relax. Even now I’m not really sure why. I wonder if I might have felt differently if I’d met them all a couple of times beforehand? I’ll revisit this at some point – definitely something in it!
Obviously a hen weekend means a wedding will follow… Now strangely, I wasn’t looking forward to this as much as I was looking forward to Ibiza. Probably just the thought of another couple of nights away from home, once again lots of people I don’t know, anxiety around doing the wedding makeup (the bride & 6 bridesmaids) & then the embarrassment of being the single loser with no plus one, at an event full of couples. Completely unexpectedly, after struggling with the hen do, I absolutely loved every second of the wedding! The venue was amazing, the weather perfect, I was more than happy with all the makeup, I didn’t at all feel like the single loser, I had a good laugh from start to finish & to top it off, I even came home with a crisp white hotel bath sheet 😃 Everyone does it, right? I thought it was a rule or something?! 🤔😜
To really prove how much I loved the wedding venue, I filled out a feedback sheet before leaving. After honestly stating how I found everything about it amazing, it then asked me if there was anything at all which could have made my stay even better. Remaining honest, I said they could have provided me with a husband! I also put on it that I’d like to hold my own wedding there. Obviously I am missing the fella to marry, which might prove to put a little spanner in the works. So I’ve booked it for August 2027. Surely I can’t STILL be single by then? Although I suppose based on luck so far, it’s more than likely 😏 I did ask them to provide me with a fella on the day, should I fail to meet “the one” by then 😂😂 I wonder who I’ll end up with?! 😂😂
Yes, so basically, even with Ibiza & a big wedding under my belt (as well as various other missed opportunities) – I’m still absolutely single! Not even a date to report. Or a one night stand! At least if I’d been used & dumped, I’d have something to talk about that involved the opposite sex… But no. Absolutely nothing. Nada. Zilch. I’m seriously considering applying to take part in “The Undateables” 😩 Mind you, with my luck they are probably not making any more now! Either that, or I end up getting a rejection letter… Not sure whether to laugh or cry at that prospect! Both I expect 😂😭😂😭😂 Beam me up… Haha.
