I’m pooped. And not only because I hosted a lingerie party yesterday.

A lot of it is to do with still recovering from last week’s cold. A lot more to do with changes at work.

Today I wasted spent the day dozing on the couch, having what Mrs Woog calls a soft pant day. And it was good. I watched about 15 episodes of How I Met Your Mother and I relieved the kitchen of the leftovers from yesterday’s tea party.

I’m the type of person who needs a bit of “white space” in life; some time to breathe, relax, pfaff. If I don’t get that white space my anxiety gets all… angsty. So soft pant day is one way of getting that space in my life.

I also love getting massages when I’m stressed, but I’m usually too tight to actually pay for one. Last week I was gifted a voucher by Groupon to test out their service and share my thoughts with you guys. As soon I saw there was a massage on offer nearby, I jumped at the chance. Groupon is one of those (many) discount sites that offer services, experiences or goodies at a cheaper rate. So far I’ve found the buying and booking process to be good, though you’re always at the mercy of the third party providing the deal you’ve bought. I’ve heard stories of poor service through friends (about this and other deal sites), but have been happy with can happily report so far that I’ve had a positive experience. The only downside being the time I have to wait for my massage – about 3 weeks.

It’ll be interesting to see how the rest of the experience goes.

Have you ever used a site like Groupon?

  1. I used to use them all the time…. but I had to put a ban on it! Too easy to impulse buy!
