Thoughts

  • Luther was bloody amazing.
  • I’ve got work tomorrow, and the next day. Six days straight of work is pretty intense but I’m enjoying. Need to have a pamper evening on thursday night.
  • So work, going round Chen’s, driving lesson, going back to Chen’s, chilling out into the evening with the girls, a massive pile of biscuits and Mean Girls.
  • Not too late to wash my hair is it.
  • Do I wash my hair now or get up early tomorrow to do it?
  • Need to get started on some of my school work.
  • But now, time for Glee.
Was only out in the sun for an hour and a half, with Charlotte, Jasmine and Lauren. Got a tan on my shoulders and back. Achievement completed!!
Got Fiona’s birthday present.
Was listening to music at full volume, still managed to fall asleep whilst listening to it, for half an hour. In my underwear. Didn’t endeavour that nap.
Went to Nando’s for the first time in sooo long! Love it there loads!

Sherlock & snacks night with the famalalalalalalam. Nice end to a day of choosing second year college options, working, going to the opticians (twenty: twenty vision yes sir, apparently the lack of focus in my left eye is insignificant), having several cold beverages, and going on a family walk. Oh and I got lots of new earrings which is good.
Cheese and chive potato skins, dips and assorted crisps. Snack night is the best night. Today ain’t so bad.

Did my hair, did my makeup & decided on some pretty substantial goals for the next couple of weeks.

It’s 22:41, I’m naked in my bedroom with no makeup, listening to David Bowie..

And I feel beautiful & empowered & life is great.

Who needs boys, who needs anything when you’ve got a wonderful family and eleven of the best friends anyone could ask for? Not me, that’s who.
I hope this feeling lasts a long time, that’s what I say all the time, but I think this time I have the strength to stay this way. I think this time I am strong enough to be Mrs-Cup-Is-Half-FULL, instead of just putting on that facade.

Why want the moon when you already have the earth? See what I’m saying?

NY WAS AMAZING!

I’ve been asleep for seventeen or so hours, fell asleep during Only Fools and Horses yesterday and didn’t wake up until just now. Now that’s what I call a good sleep.

New York was so good though, saw all the sights: Statue of Liberty, Chinatown, Wall Street (didn’t meet my Daddy Warbucks though) Tiffany’s, Empire State Building, UN Building, Grand Central Station, was so, so good. Went to all the shops, particular favourites include VIctoria’s Secret, Forever 21, the M&M World, and the mahooosive Disney store.

The food was great, massive waffles with ice cream and fruit and chocolate sauce, every morning, huge chicken wraps, nachos with guacamole etc etc, and the hotel was pretty nice too, except it was so big we couldn’t find our hotel room for about half an hour and we ordered extra pillows on room service three times and they never came. Oh also we flooded the bathroom.

Lessons learnt in New York:

  1. Don’t get in a black cab because it IS a private chauffeur (not me, it was Carly and Sara).

Yep, that was pretty much it. Anyway, New York was such an amazing trip and I really can’t wait to go there again. Ahhh! xo 

The countdown to New York: 3 days. 
I have a cold at the moment, but I’m completely optimistic and reckon it’ll be gone by Wednesday, ready for me to finish packing for NYC. Talking of, I got my dollars today. Dollars are seductively unreal, like Monopoly money. I want to bathe in them.
Life is sublime despite my croaky voice and slightly running nose: I had chicken chow mein for dinner whilst catching up on Waterloo Road: I am a woman of small pleasures, believe me.
Hair cut tomorrow, very much looking forward to making small talk with a woman I undoubtedly don’t have very much in common with at all for an hour, for fifty quid. It’s okay, in situations such as these I whip out my phone and do phone admin: log appointments, reply to emails, network etc etc. In reality I won’t do this at all, and will take the opportunity to acquaint myself further with the daily news (hello Daily Mail app) or play Temple Run 2. Plllllaaan. Hair better look gorgeous.
In a creative writing sort of mood.
I am losing my voice very slowly. This will please people tomorrow. (I know my body so well that I am 100% certain that it’ll return by tomorrow night, also I’m sort of psychic) (I jest)
I was going to have an early night but I got somewhat distracted and went downstairs to get myself a Lemsip and ended up watching the news for an hour.
Life of me. xoxo

Red lipstick, batwing top and high wasted trousers: could I be more Alex Drake?

Let’s drink to that

I’m in one of those moods where I just feel so free and happy. I’m not going to list thousands of reasons why I feel like this, but just let me tell you that I’m incredibly blessed to be surrounded by people who love me. I am very lucky and sometimes you just appreciate what you have.

I think I’ve had a change of heart. I feel like I just want to do things that make me feel contented, and that’s what I intend to do. Let go of the things that get me down, and concentrate on going out with friends and dressing up all pretty and then going home for a deliciously romantic bubble bath for one. That’s what I want.

I’m pretty blissed out as you can probably tell, and I’m finding it hard to be critical about anything right now. The only thing I’m really disgruntled over is the fact I want to see Phantom of the Opera and Rocky Horror at the Mayflower and I can’t afford any of them (unless I go by myself, which I am quite tempted to do..). Ah well. 

Hello future. xo

I’ve had a lovely day! Got into college super early at about ten to eight and had a croissant, which is a great way to start any day, no? Then I only had tutor and media, and our teacher wasn’t even for media anyway, so it was so relaxing! 

Went out to a garden centre with my mum for lunch and I bought a Yankee Candle, it’s ‘Fluffy Towels’ scented and smells like fresh laundry and is absolutely blissful, and I’ve got that to thank for this feeling of serenity I am experiencing right now.
Seriously, I’m absolutely blissed out. I have an exam in just over fifteen hours and I should be doing some manic studying, but I’m not. I’m just happy.

I did have a work meeting today and I was curled up in the staffroom shaking and feeling nauseous and also slightly like I was having a hot flush, but once I got downstairs and we started the meeting all was alright! After the meeting went to McDonalds with my family and also Sara and girls. It was nice.

That’s been my day, hope everyone else has equally boring lives! xo
