The Best Things

This has been a good weekend. Fact. Today has barely started but I can just tell it’s gonna be a good ‘un.

Yesterday involved:

– sunshine (mainly)

– a picnic in Castle Park with one of my best friends who amazes me more and more each time I see her.

– realising how much I LOVE life.

– getting an early birthday present, and it being exactly what I NEED/had been wanting to buy.


(thank you again Becca!)

– Barry M crackle polishes on two for Β£5 in Boots. Well, it’d be rude not to


– Laughing like a maniac on the bus home because of a flurry of text messages involving a very random in joke.

– Having to go back out to hold Mum’s hand as she took her car to the car wash. The fact she’s scared of it really makes me smile!

– The return of Britains Got Talent!

Today involves:

– More sunshine!

– Spending time with Trudi who I don’t see enough of any more

– Also seeing my grandparents, with Trudi, because she is family.

– Granny shorts




Vintage Laura Ashley random ebay purchase. Thankfully verrry cheap!

– People! All of you people who make me laugh, entertain me on twitter, leave gorgeous comments and take my BBM virginity!

What has made your weekend great?
