Sexy underwear or Granny-pants?

sexyundiesUsually women feel the urge to clean out every cupboard when they are either frustrated, need the space for more stuff, pregnant and about to give birth or just damn OCD.

Anyway, I have experienced all of the above. Lately though, it has been more about need the space for my son’s stuff!! Cause he is taking over every part of my life and house. To think it was going to be hubby who would do that only, well think again.

So I was being a little too thorough when I decided that I didn’t need to only put away my endless summer clothes (that I never wear in this country), but to also go through everything I own again and decide what to keep and what to chuck. My husband usually gives me his old shirts to clean with, well I just chuck everything of mine. Can you imagine if I decide to wear it by accident again, after cleaning a  table? THE HORROR.

It was getting pretty embarrassing every time I had to answer the door and the person on the other side would have to see a strange woman with uncombed hair and like old pyjamas. So you get a bit hot in the face, or you just don’t care… but either way you end up saying something like “I am a busy mom” to try and excuse yourself. They all seem to nod with understanding, but I bet you deep inside they are thinking, “This woman is not coping!”. Whatever, I like my pyjamas and I can stay in them as long as I please! No, seriously though, I need to get a grip.

I have thrown all my old pyjamas away. It seems my mother-in-law always brings me new pyjamas when she visits and I think she is probably hinting at something. 🙂

After reviewing my shirts, I decided it was time to review the underwear section of my wardrobe. My son, who was sitting by my side, seemed very interested in my bras. He kept dragging them around and throwing them in and out of the box. I think he may become a boob man! Disturbing thought.

I noticed I had all sorts of underwear and then it hit me. I have been collecting underwear through the years and each one represented a part of my life. Who would have thought underwear does that? First it was hipsters and boyshorts (the young years), then it was the G-strings and thongs (sexy times)… we all know what the dental floss is for? Trust me I don’t anymore really.Then it was the tangas(feeling a little less sexy and a bit more mature), followed by normal briefs and bikinis(settled). You don’t want to know what comes next!!

GRANNY PANTS – the pregnancy era!

I remember being in the labour room and about to give birth, the head midwife comes into the room, zaps a photo of my butt (in the granny pants) and threatens to post it on Facebook! saying… “Who the hell wears that?” They were horrid, BUT comfortable.

So that’s life in the shape of underwear.

I have now decided that we really could use some variety and have a balanced underwear drawer. Who knows when I will need GRANNYPANTS again. By the way, my husband finds them hideous, but hey did he become and elephant?

To IPhone or not to IPhone that is the household question!

So, recently my husband and I have just had it with our Samsung S3‘s. They are driving us mental! They freeze up for no reason at all, then you have to restart the wifi sometimes cause it doesn’t work,  or the phone will decided to restart on it’s own for no good reason etc.

I went to Vodafone and complained about the phone so that they could do something about it, but you know it had recently been services so what were they really going to do with it? Update the software,…. it was the latest version! The guy at the till told me that he also has a Samsung and he has had no problems with it. Ok, that’s nice. My husband and several friends have exactly the same issues as me, I am not fabricating!

In the end I decided to go for the IPhone, ok maybe it was those pesky, repeating emails about upgrading to the new S5. It makes sense right?  I mean everything at home is apple. But the thing is, well.. the phones are getting ridiculously expensive and not offering much more than the older versions.

The major difference between the IPhone 5 and IPhone 5s is the chip set, the biometric reader (big deal) and 2 hours extra battery life. The processor anyway seems to be the same.

I think the weirdest thing is that there are people out there buying the IPhone 5c’s? WHY?

There is no difference between the two phones. In the end you just paying a hell of a lot more money for a plastic casing, why not buy yourself a £10 cover?

Apple has apparently discontinued the manufacturing of the apple 4 and 5’s and there are forcing you to pay more money for the new handsets. That is a bit of disgrace, but hey.

iPhone 5 iPhone 5C
16 GB £529 £469
32 GB £599 £549
64 GB £699 n/a

It looks like I can’t wait till the end of next year, and what more can they really do to improve these phones anyhow?

So I will have to settle for an IPhone 5s on a contract for 12 months, with a discount from Vodafone on a corporate deal. Works out cheaper than a 24 month contract and you can upgrade in a year again!

By the way apparently there is a long wait for the gold version and it looks kinda cheap.

On a phone where you can’t put extra memory, I highly recommend getting the 32GB version. It seems silly to go for less in this digital age. And please, please, please don’t be the odd person that buys a green or yellow IPhone 5c!
