Recently ... [3]

+ So, because I apparently have THE shortest attention span like, ever ... I've changed my blog's design again. Not too much, but I just decided to make the colouring of it a bit more autumn/wintery. I'm pretty proud of it, yo. Especially the menu mouseover effects. I am such a nerd. I really need to get out more.

+ I've now got over 80 followers! Eek. I feel pretty proud of that, too. Thanks guys, for thinking me interesting enough to follow. And especially you guys who comment so much - I feel really lucky when I see some blogs that have a similar amount of followers but don't get anywhere near as many lovely comments as I do ♥

+ I've been drinking tea lately. Which is weird, because for years I was convinced I didn't like it (again, weird considering how my mother loves the stuff. She seriously drinks about 5 or 6 cups a day). But one morning in work I needed something warming to wake me up, and since I HATE coffee, I thought I'd give tea another try. And you know what? I actually liked it. Once I'd added some sugar and milk, at least. So now when someone in work offers, "Anyone want coffee? Tea?" I can actually reply with, "Tea please!" It makes me feel all grown up. Yeah.

+ I was going to do a post a couple of days ago about Kim Kardashian's marriage. Or lack of it. But it turned a bit ranty so I didn't post it. The gist of it was, though, that I'm fed up of celebrities treating marriage so casually. Marriage is supposed to be something that is forever. And yes, of course I understand that some marriages break down. But so many celebrities just don't even seem to try to make it work. Marriage absolutely isn't the next step of a relationship. If you can't even be bothered to try to make a 72 day old marriage work, then there should be some law to stop you remarrying. I don't understand how some people can get away with claiming that allowing gays to marry will ruin the sanctity of marriage, when 'celebrities' like Kim & Kris are out there, spending millions on a wedding, then waltzing out just when something slightly doesn't seem as fun as it once did. It makes me angry, to be honest.

+ And with that, Dan and I are off to the pub for some dinner and drinks. Yes please.


  1. Grrr it makes me angry too- especially considering the sh*t load of money they spent on it which could've gone to about a billion worthy causes... and yeah about the gay marriage thing, it clearly makes a mockery of that doesn't it? Anyways, glad you like tea now, although sugar is a big no no in my book. :p xx

  2. New layout it ADORABLE. Seriously, I love it.

    Yeah, that 72 day marriage thing gets under my skin. A) If you marry somebody, you should have taken the time to get to know them and their way of life and make sure it coincides with your own. B) You should be adult enough to realize that marriage is NOT easy, especially the first year or two. Ugh, some (not all) celebrities are so wasteful and frivolous. It irks me.

    Ok.. off my soapbox.. :)

  3. I just discovered your blog, and I love it !

  4. Congrats on all the followers. I'm trying to make myself like tea, but it just isn't going very well. Maybe I'll have to try it with milk and sugar.


Comments make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :)
