Two of my friends from my year abroad are coming to visit me for the next week and a bit! I'm SO EXCITED. I haven't seen Nora since April last year, and Chris since May 2010! We're going to be visiting London then doing a roadtrip of sorts to Bath, Stonehenge, Brighton etc. I'm so looking forward to be able to spend so much time with the two of them.

I won't be blogging (not that you'd notice, since my update rate has been appalling lately!) in that time, obviously. But I'll hopefully be back with lots of fun photos, like these darlings:

Confession: Dan and I are massive Pointless nerds. Dan usually watches it while I'm getting ready for work, which often results in my getting v. sidetracked from the getting ready. If we've nothing to watch, we'll iPlayer an episode we've not seen. We might have secret aspirations to be contestants on there. In lieu of that, though, I managed to get us tickets to see it being filmed!

So on Thursday we headed up to London (with stops at M&Ms World and the Tate Modern along the way) to BBC Television Centre.

We were in the second row from the front so we had a great view. It was really quite a small set, bless it. I did take some photos of the actual set, but since we weren't technically supposed to, I shan't post them on here just in case I get an angry email from the BBC ...

The most interesting thing - for me (and I think probably Dan!) - was seeing how tall Richard is. He's a giant! 6' 7", I think the warm up guy said he was. Actual giant. He looks so normal sized in his chair (though I now understand why the chair is so imposing with its tall back!), then he gets up and BAM, huge human being.

We got to do lots of 'ohhhhh'-ing as the numbers on the column go down, and lots of cheering and clapping. It was rather good fun. Although it's a lot less tense in real life than it seems on the TV. I think this only fueled mine and Dan's desire to be contestants! Maybe one day ...

Bad Emma.

Oh dear, I've been a very bad blogger. Hi, remember me? I have absolutely no excuse for my lack of posts other than the complete lack of incentive to write anything. Poor show, Emma, poor show.

Since I still feel I have nothing much to post about but feel obliged to post something, here's some lovely and funny things:

If I had spare money, I would buy this dress. As it is, I'm being good and resisting the urge.

I want my hair this colour. Also, Lana Del Rey's songs are so haunting and beautiful. I almost don't want to like them, but I do. Here, listen to one of her songs:

I love this quote ♥

Oh Scarlett, you so purdy, even when you're sweaty and frowny.

I'll try and motivate myself to post more. I will, I swears.
