    Dolly's diary....... 22nd May 18 at 5:21 PM
    Hello my name is Dolly and I love lists

    I'm going to start this new post and the first promise I am going to make to myself and you is to keep it active and up to date as I have seriously lagged with any previous attempts for one reason or another.

    So a bit about me then;

    * My name is not really Dolly
    * I am a single pringle
    * I am 35 years old
    * I live and work in sunny Glasgow
    * I LOVE Harry Potter, Harris Tweed, stationary, lists and tequila
    * I'm a family and friends orientated person
    * I'm all about the happy and the positivity

    Will be back soon with my first of many lists

    Dxxx

    So just back from my daily trip so Superdrug. They have Lighterlife products which are soups and shakes for fast days, they are usually £10.99 for a box but they have started reducing some of them.

    They are £5.00 now then they might go down to £3.00 then £1.00, I'm holding out hope that I can get about 8 boxes when they reduce them right down, just hope no one else has the same idea as me!

    I always seem to try lay in bed until like the very last minute then end up rushing about. My sleep pattern is normally all over though so at times I have an early night but end up getting up earlier in the morning haha so the early night doesn't do much good.

    Here's hoping you get the bargain you are waiting for on the shakes

    INOD - Quite right, I'm the same I am up and out the door in about 15 minutes! Slept on again today, whoops. Will be 8am start from next week, might allow myself one late start a week on a Wednesday if I need it.

    FFDan - Same! I just want a solid 12 hours of sleep for one night, is that too much to ask!?!?

    Morning Dolly

    I would just be happy with 8 hours of sleep ha. Although i do inflict the tiredness myself sometimes, i tend to watch a boxset and lose track of time. My work pattern can also make it difficult to get a routine bedtime.

    Ah same, I really try not to watch anything in bed now during the week at all.

    If I could have a 12 hour sleep once a month I would be living the dream, I'm such a bad sleeper and always have been really. Up and down all night - so annoying.

    Gonna go for dinner before it with my mum, sister and my mums friend who is over from Canada right now. Think she will be going home soon so it's a good wee farewell night for her.
