It had to happen. No really, it did. I wrote and published this, a full explanation of my internet-quietness this year (in short: pregnant, baby due in two weeks) and the VERY NEXT MORNING, the baby decides it’s finished baking … Continue reading
Sometimes it takes someone to say something you don’t want to hear to make things happen. I was watching a photography seminar online delivered by an amazing tutor last week, when the topic of blogs came up… needless to say, … Continue reading
I am a bit of a geek… perhaps caused by the very cool (and by cool, I mean ‘so-uncool-I-almost-can’t-handle-it’) pink glasses I started wearing from age nine? Or too much watching the news and reading books? Anyway, it turns out … Continue reading
I have been an incredibly slack blogger. So, in the interests of getting back into a good habit, here’s some stuff I’m loving at the moment.
The Big Bang Theory.
It’s just SO, so good. The current series has just finished (thank you Sidereel for the ability to watch ahead, without an actual tv), so in between re-watching the previous series on DVD and you know, working and having a life, I’m pretty sure I can make it to September when it restarts. Such is my level of TBBT geekiness, we own the same shower curtain as Sheldon & Leonard… If only the new house didn’t have an actual shower door.
Perfume & pretty new trinkets.
Kent bought me some gorgeous perfume for my birthday and I can’t work out if I’m more in love with the fragrance itself or the bottle… it’s just so beautiful!
Technically I was shopping for a birthday gift for a friend, but accidentally ended up buying some pretty shiny things for me. Oops.
Adele’s album, 21.
I’ve had it for months and I still can’t stop playing it. She’s A-MAZ-ING.
Being a homeowner.
No really, if you’d told me a few years back that I would love the idea of owing the bank the equivalent of the GDP of a small nation and that if anything breaks it’s on us to sort it, I wouldn’t have believed it. Pfft. I even look forward to the mortgage payments going out of our bank account! I probably need to get out more.
Just a random selection of things that I’m loving at the moment.
Birthday week – This Thursday (same day as the Queen’s actual birthday, still no invite to share cake, despite all we have in common) marks the end of my 20s, yet still I’m excited – what’s that all about? Pretty sure I was supposed to be dreading being 30, but I’m looking forward to it the same way I do Christmas… thankfully I’ve long since reconciled myself with never again being asked for ID, so let the cards and expensive gifts start rolling in.
To My Wife – it’s a tumblr blog written by a single guy with a load of thoughts about his future (as-yet-unmet) wife and their relationship, some are funny, some are touching, and the whole concept is a bit swoon-inducing. It’s so, so good. If you need further convincing, there’s only a sentence or two a day, so it doesn’t take very long and will make you smile.
Feijoas – Yum.
Gossip Girl – yes, I’m about twice the age of most of the show’s fans, but I just can’t resist a show full of gorgeous, rich people, locations and things… and I’m a sucker for teens who speak like grown-ups. But only on the telly (well, On Demand, really).
