So this past weekend has been a ball! I had a nice wee weekend with my other half!
Started off on Friday when I met him in Glasgow at 11am and we went to see The Green Hornet. Seth Rogen looks better chubbier, I think it's only me who feels that way. I like the film but some the scenes that were shot, the WAY they were shot sort of confused me. The whole time I was thinking that nothing really interlinks and it's a bit jumpy ( not scary ). It was still a good film though.
Afterwards we made our way through to Edinburgh and I was super excited to see our hotel for the evening. After getting lost once or twice we finally found our way to the hotel and car park. We were worried about checking in because it was booked under my sisters married name and oviously I don't have the same name. It was fine though, the receptionist was really nice and we even had our own "bell boy"? to take us to our room. He was Spanish and called Ricardo....... After showing us to our wee room it was amazing! The bed was so comfy and the bathroom, WOW! We had a huge bath and a separate shower. After a quick nap we both got up and ready to go out, I looked like this
and he looked like this:
When we were set to go something went wrong, our door wouldn't lock! We tried everything before going to find someone who brought out a manager who basically had never seen anything like this apparently. He locked the door manually for us and off  we toddled fora wee walk before out dinner res at the Hard Rock. During our walk I got a phone call from the Manager (his name was Scott and he was the nicest guy ever) basically saying they couldn't fix the lock so he was going to move us to another room. Not just your average room but a suite! A SUITE! I was super excited. We didn't have time to go back to swap rooms so he said it would be okay to do it later.
Of to the Hard Rock we went. Funnily enough I've been to many Hard Rock Cafes but never the one in Edinburgh. It was small but cosy and had your usual memorabilia on the wall. I decided to go all out and get a cocktail for £10.80 and get a free glass! I thought it was a good idea as the cocktails themselves were £5 odd. I had mac and cheese with chicken and Marc had a huge burger! We also shared a starter and were super stuffed so we decided to wait until we got back to the hotel and order some room service dessert. This unfortunately never happened! 

When we got back to the hotel we were introduced to our suite - which came with complimentary Whisky and holy hell! It's the biggest hotel room I have ever stayed in! When they were cutting the key I look at the price list and apparently a suite is almost £500 a night! 

I loved it! The bed was big enough to fit about 4 people in it and was super comfy. We also got robes and slippers to make it that little bit more like home! Marc stole the slippers and I'm waiting for them to be charged to his credit card! I couldn't believe that we got upgraded to this all for a faulty lock! Now that is good customer service! If I had the money I would totally go back to this hotel and stay for longer. I would recommend it to anyone! For some reason though, the hotel had a thing for naked ladies! All over the joint I swear! Was amusing!
Here's some more random snaps:

After an awesome nights sleep in the huge bed we got up and checked out and dumped out stuff in th car and toddled off to find somwhere for breakfast. Neither of us are really sure of the area so we sticked of old faithful Wetherspoons for breakfast. I had pancakes, he had a Scottish breakfast. Was really nice actually. After munching and going for a quick walk we got back to the car to head to Paradise, most people will know this as Celtic Football Club.

After being together more than 2 years this is the first time he took me to a football game and I must admit I enjoyed it. He is such a big football fan and I'm thinking of getting him Hospitality at one of the home games for Valentines Day as Calvin Klein boxers only do so much. Who knows!
4th row from the front, behind the goal and we got to see Stokes score his goal. I probably wouldn't sit here again as the second half was boring as Aberdeen are crap so the ball wasn't up our end much! 
Afterwards we went home and chilled out and watched Predator. It was the first time I'd seen the whole thing. As much as I hate to admit it, I love Arnie films. So good! 
Sunday we lazed about like never before and then went out for dinner with his parents which was nice. The only one thing I disliked about it was the desert. When you think of Creme Brulee, do you think of creamy custardy goodness or do you think of freezing cold goup? It was terrible. I took one bite and couldnt eat anymore. Felt like I was eating yoghurt that had been frozen and had started to defrost. UGH!
So that was my weekend in a nutshell, a large nutshell.
This week I have so far applied for 6 more jobs, went to the job centre and had a 45 min chat with my advisor about Canada next year and bought this badboy:
Raspberry is the name and I'm looking forward to trying it out! 
My plans for tomorrow are to look out a wooden box I made in my standard grade craft class and have a telephone interview for Tesco Bank! 

Wish all the best throughts for me as I need all the help I can get becoming employed!
