Stockholm, Sweden!

Play this song whilst looking!

Photos from my trip to Stockholm!

Autumn leaves, Stockholm city.

Phallic looking hotdogs...haha

I absolutely LOVE this photo. The wee lima was running around the trees and it just happened that I clicked at the right time and got it mid jump!
Cute letter boxes

Things I'm Loving!

This week I'm loving...

STOCKHOLM!! Such a beautiful, amazing, peaceful, clean city! I could definitely live there!

I'm loving Skype. Just had a wonderful chat to my parents!

I'm loving my new winter jersey - 80% wool and a bargain!

Excuse the blurryness and CRAZY eyes!
I'm loving this video on youtube. They also sing a really gorgeous version of a song called 'Home', but I'll let you look that up! The wee girl's expressions in the chorus are sooo precious!

I'm also loving this girl. She was on Britains Got Talent when she was like 6, and now she sounds like this! Here's her young, and here's her now at 11!

Things I'm Loving!

Here's a few things I'm loving this week..

Sunsets and sunrises. They are amazing. And I'm lucky enough to see them both everyday (for the mean time anyway, it's getting dark at like 6pm now!!)

I'm loving working in a multi-cultural school (there are NO white kids in my class...) and celebrating Diwali, which also means parents give you gifts! I received these today..

I'm loving bargains! I'm such a stinge with money when it comes to spending it on clothing (food is another thing) and these are my latest purchases!

I'm loving that I go to Stockholm tomorrow! Yippee!

I'm loving my phone cover! I would say new, but I've been meaning to put it up for weeks now! And it's so easy to find my phone in my handbag now! Hello bright red!

I'm loving the fact that I'll hopefully be able to Skype Meg next week! It's been weeks!

I'm loving the moustache paper clips I saw at a little market stall (I wasn't allowed to take a photo..)

I'm missing my parents so much, and my Nanna and Grandad, and my sisters, and all my friends! But London is amazing. In the nearly 5 months that I've been here I've experienced so much and done so many cool and crazy things that I would never get the chance to do in Wellington! 

I also miss having the internet - I'm using my portable WiFi from my phone to post this!

I miss blogging all the time!

I miss going to pintrest and spending hours looking at things!

I miss taking and editing photos!

But this is things I'm loving! And whilst I miss all these things, there are so many more things I'm loving! It's all about time management and making the most of what is in front of you! So off I go to have another glass of wine - after all, that is what's in front of me!

Over and out amigos.

Things I'm Loving!

Better late than never right??

Most importantly - this is my 90th post! 

I'm loving this song which I think you should all play - it's beautiful

I'm loving this cheeky Mr Fox that decided to laze about in the morning sunshine on our back fence! He's so cute, I wish they were pets! (I'm also loving the editing on the photos, that's why they're up there twice with different filters - I couldn't choose just one!)

I'm loving ALL this chocolate my Mumma sent me! I am not going to over indulge cos I'm meant to be slimming now!

I'm loving watching the sun rise on my way to work, and watching it set on my way home. Soon there'll barely be any sun so I'm making the most of natural beauty!

I'm loving that this time next week I'll be in Stockholm! Can't wait!

Watch this space for my new purchases I bought over the last week! There's some really choice things!

Weekend bliss

After leaving work a bit earlier than I should have on Friday, I was thinking a nice quiet evening in bed with a glass or two or bottle of wine would be splendid.

On the way to work - sun rising.

However, that was not what actually happened.

On the way home - sun setting.

I got home after a call from my flatmate, asking me what fun thing we should get up to that night. We decided on cooking dinner together. And joining the gym.

So we walked to the gym, joined (after a hilarious attempt at telling them we were a lesbian couple so we could get a 'partners' membership which was cheaper; I could not however keep a straight face and kept on laughing. I think they got the hint that we just wanted the cheapest!) and then we were on our merry way to Sainsburys.

After spotting the £3 pumpkins, we thought we both deserved a hilarious night in.

And hilarious it was.

I lugged a 9kg pumpkin around for 45 minutes whilst we swanned through the isles deciding what to get. After 20 or so minutes, we decided on this:

Our meal must contain a food from all 4 festive holidays - Halloween, Christmas, Valentines and Easter. 

Harry, my 9kg babe, chilling out in the fire place. 

Happy Easter!

Merry Christmas!

Pink coloured smarties - happy Valentines day!
Despite me not being able to dairy, I threw that intolerance out the window for the evening and indulged in some much needed dairy goodness. We had loads of fun!

And Saturday night was fun times for all as well! Getting home at 6am was probably not the highlight, however, I don't really mind because it was nice to let my hair down and boogie on down til the wee hours of the morning!

Things I'm Loving!

You know those weeks, where you have to dig deep to find some lovin'? 

Like really deep? 

And then you can appreciate how amazing life is, even though you think it's the worst week ever?

Well it was one of those weeks! So here's my lovin'!

I'm loving this song.. play it!

I'm loving the crisp feel of Autum. It's definitely here - even after the Indian summer that we had last week!

London Fields

Jandals in Autum?? Hells bells yeah!!
I'm loving this cheeky wee squirrel.

I'm loving spending time with my cousins over the last few weeks. It's nice to have a few choice family members here!

And I'm loving this little treat I'm leaving you with.

You should all brace yourselves.

It's pretty choice!


(I found this on my memory stick - it was a photo that my friends put on my 21st photo board...)

Clearly I'm really stoked about wearing a 60's costume to school!

Things I'm Loving!

This week I'm loving...

The two new editions to our flat!
Meet Leo (the black one) and Tallulah!

The sun! It has been so hot this week, 25-30 degrees most days!

On the way to work

Whitechapel Rd on the way home.

Going to Brighton!
It was such a beaut day on Saturday so my flatmate and I caught the train over to Brighton! The beach was packed but we squeezed into a spot and lay our towels down, then went for a swim, followed by a walk along the pier. We left as the sun was going down and it was amazing. I wish I had taken my SLR with me!

I'm loving this old little sign that's at East Ham train station.

I know I'm about 6 years too late, but I've jumped on the James Blunt wagon. I found his Back to Bedlam album on my ipod and it gets played very frequently! My favourites are Tears and Rain and High!

And lastly, I'm loving this 50p coin I got. There are loads of different 'patterned' ones around, but this is my fav so far!
