Theres something exciting and exotic about receiving post from overseas! I got an airmail and a package containing a long lost dvd which thrilled me to the core!

I'm finding chipped nail varnish a real bore today! Wahts the point in all the lovely colours if the second you touch anything it chips and looks nasty.

I am NOT a party animal!!

and am unashamed of this fact. The last 2 nights I had my prom (okayish but disappointing) and then my friends bday party. This meant that I got 10 hours sleep over 2 nights, which is less than I usually get in one! Therefore, having had a nap (my favourite!!)I decided to skip a party I'd been planning o attend tonight in favour of a cuppa and a biscuit in my bed with a novel about an Irish nun who is a detective. Not the typical 18 year old methinks :)

But I enjoyed it.

Things I love

Finding exactly the thing you are looking for
A cool breeze on a hot day.
Lemon Sorbet
Ginger Rogers movies
Gerbera Daisies that are almost black purple
Funfair rides
Standing in an isolated spot with the wind in my hair
Early early mornings, before the world is awake.
Kitty Foyle dresses
Photo booth machines
Waking up happy
A stranger saying something nice, for no reason other than to be nice
Tea and a good book.
Honeycomb icecream
Classic cinema
Nice underwear
Seamed stockings
Ticking things off lists
Making plans

I could go on but its long enough, it's been a good day so I decded to end by listing things I am grateful for. Religiously I dont know where I stand at the moment, so I guess this is a cross between a prayer of thanksgiving and a reminder to myself how happy life is on pessimistic days. God, if you're there, I appreciate it all :)

The Beginning

My other blog has a purpose, this is the opposite. An opportunity for me to note all the little things that crop up in my head. I don't do big emotional out pourings, its not my style. If you want to read theobservations of your average girl next door, who has a good relationship with her parents, doesnt have deep rooted insecurities and is happy most of the time, then you're in the right place.

This blog is named for a song which currently encapsulates my mood. It says all the things my romantic (hopelessly so) side would love for someone to have inspired by and written about me. But more than this, it literally is this blogs purpose, to bring together a little of all the things I am.

If noone ever reads it, I wont mind too much, it's for me, anything else is a bonus!
