Where did Sunday go?

So true!

Saturday has always been my favourite.  I get to spend all day with my husband, watching football and having a drink.  The only thing is now that we are in Toronto it is a whole different kind of brilliant!

Instead of the match kicking off at 3pm, it’s 10am.  Instead of having a couple before the game, having a 90 minute break then going out for the night afterwards, we drink throughout the game and carry on afterwards.  Instead of spending too much, we spend FAR too much!

So when we wake up on Sunday morning groggy and with banging heads, we always vow ‘Never again!’ But what we really mean is ‘Can’t wait for next weekend.’

2013 has me worn out already…

and it’s only 6 days in!

Celebrate good times!

A quiet New Year’s day prepared us for a very unquiet January 2nd!  We were going to Liverpool to watch Sunderland, and staying over at our friends Darren and Dawn”s house in Manchester.  Anytime we are with Darren and Dawn, whether it be for a few sociable drinks or a big night out, it is always messy.  This trip was no different.  Double D seem to have that effect on us, although I am sure they will say it is our fault! 😉

Flying home for Christmas!

Flying home for Christmas

As great as Toronto is, and even though we have had the most wonderful time there, where better to spend the holidays than at home with family and friends?  Dorothy got it spot on with her famous statement, there really is no place like home.

Christmas Party with Marty!

Christmas party with Marty

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way! Oh what fun it is to see Sunderland win… AT ALL!! 😀

Get in my bonny lads in red and white!  You have kicked off my Christmas party this year, and just when we needed it too.

Anyone who knows their football will tell you that Sunderland AFC are not on Santa’s nice list this year.  We have been terrible and we desperately needed to win today/tonight (depending on your time zone) and win we did!

No plans means one thing… hic!

Beer and sports

This weekend, Phil and I decided that we would basically chill out, for the first time since being here we didn’t have plans to do anything so we thought we would relax and see where the wind took us!

And that is how the weekend came to be able to get summed up in 5 words.

Drink.  Football.  Pubs.  Boxing.  Hangover.

So with that summary telling the story, the only thing left is to look through my phone and post the tomfoolery I caught on camera…

My Toronto birthday!

Birthday advent opening!

The 4th December.  My birthday, and officially the best advent calendar door to open, bar none.  Getting a year older becomes less of a celebration once you’ve hit and partied away your 21st birthday, but spending it in Toronto really takes the edge off, it has to be said! 😀

Just the ticket!

After nearly a full week of resting up and taking it easy out here in Toronto, I was feeling good.  So good in fact, that we thought we would celebrate by starting the weekend early and having a few little Thursday night drinks!  We had a lot of plans this weekend, so I was definitely pleased to be on the mend.

A little detour… Toronto I’m a comin’

Flights are booked, bags are (not yet) packed, wounds are healing nicely, I think it’s about time I joined my husband!

As you know, if you have read my other posts and/or bio, Phil is currently in Boston (Massachusetts, United States of America) and I am currently in Southwick (Sunderland, England).  Not that far really, give or take 3174.6 miles.  We are not only at opposite sides of the Atlantic, we are living completely opposite lifestyles!  He is working hard from morning till night and I am hardly moving from under the quilt recovering from surgery.  But this is all about to change!
