But at the weekend, along with approx 300,000 other nutters, me and my girls went to meet a friend at the seaside - and I got to wear that Miu Miu-esque dress from South at Littlewoods (!) I'd been salivating over - and my bikini (unprecedented).
There were many, many cocktails, Travel Lodge Tapas and a nightclub en route home. Not all of it is fit to print (I was too tipsy to operate my camera by the end of the night - and I'm still hungover) but here's what I did manage to capture of our Grand Day Out...
|One busy October 1st beach|
|We hadn't consumed too many cocktails at this stage...|
|Wee aeroplanes drawing love hearts in the sky always adds a certain somethin' somethin'|
|I spy serious cocktails at Hotel du Vin - a round of "Life's a Gamble"|
|"Rose Petals" - chin chin|
|You know things are getting serious when you slip down a little hole in the Latino Cantina (?)...|
|...and when Cava Sangria tastes this good|
|By the time we hit Vodka Revolutions there is Red Bull involved...|
|...and a wild look in our eyes|
