T minus 12 hours

Music: Big Calm - Morcheeba

That's T minus 12 hours until my first date with Craig.


The bare facts are:

Craig and I are going out for drinks.
Craig has the house to himself this weekend. 
(Well, if you don't count his younger brother).

I know I’ve got my friend Nicola’s spare bed reserved for the night, but I’m kind of hoping that we end up back at his place...

I never thought I’d hear myself saying that, but I’m determined not to get freaked out by the whole sex thing this time around, and I'm seeing Craig as just a bit of fun.  My "back in the saddle" guy, if you know what I mean. 

The last time I was single after splitting up with my long term boyfriend, aka The Evil Cockbag, I was pretty much petrified of the thought of any other bloke seeing me naked.  I suppose that's what happens when you've been with someone for nearly four years.  Well, that's what happened with me anyway.

I know it’s officially our first date, but I'm not ruling anything out.  If it happens, it happens and I won't make myself feel bad about it. 

Sex and the City's Samantha Jones eat your heart out.  Or something like that...

AAAAAGGGGGHHH!  Sod that.  I am freaking OUT!

(Note to self:  Must remember to buy some condoms.  You know, just in case.  Oh, and shave my legs).


  1. Ok BREATHE!!!!

    It's just a first date, you are going to be fine and fabulous and witty and drop dead gorgeous :D

    Have fun tonight cant wait to hear how you get on

    Keep smiling

  2. Maybe it's just me, but I think the condoms are the guy's job!!

  3. You don't want to go without though. Midnight condom runs are such a mood killer :P

    Just have fun! What happens happens :)

  4. GOOD LUCK!! Egads! I feel your fear, but am sure your wit and charm and youth will leave him gaga. Can't wait to hear how it goes!

  5. Have fun but be safe!



  6. Ooh you'll be on the date now, I hope it's going well....

    Aargh delete, delete! Can't believe I've just admitted to being online on a Saturday night! Er I'm actually in some exclusive club commenting from my phone while I'm in the toilet. Yes, that's what I'm doing!

  7. Have fun and good thinking about condoms!

  8. first day, it'll be fine, but do keep the legs shaved =]
    let us know how it goes

  9. hehe just be glad you aren't the poor very well prepared guy who was in the queue in front of me at Cafe Nero yesterday... he was about 16 ish, and was messing with his wallet getting ready to pay when his "be prepared" condom fell out and on to the floor without him noticing... I felt obliged to tell him as otherwise it would cometo the crucial moment and he'd miss out! Never seen anyone go so red!!!
    I then felt obliged to tell him what I'm going to tell you, Better safe then sorry, now stop blushing and drink your hot chocolate."

    Hope you had a fun date ;-) xxx

  10. C'mon, time for an update Kate! What happened? Your readers (particularly those without lives of their own!) absolutely need to know!...


  11. not to put a damper on things but will be worried bout what he thinks bout you if you do have sex with him on the first date?
