pinky pinky plonky

the farmer had a donkey
the donkey died
the farmer cried
pinky, pinky, plonkey

been missing my parents a lot recently, maybe that's why i've been craving the warm maternal fuzziness of pink. we had a beautiful christmas with everyone in brighton though, i got some truly lovely gifts, and my mum even made matthew a stocking! i'm sitting in his parent's cottage at the moment, sadly in a lot of pain (silly tummy) while he helps his dad rebuild their shower.

i hope everyone had a truly lovely christmas, and is looking forward to new year!!!

feeling icy

not sure why, but i've been in a very weird/awful mood the last two days. maybe i'll be able to breathe easier post-portfolio pick up, if not we're going to the pub after so that will almost definitely cheer me up a little.

on a lighter note, i bought the shoes! i wore them yesterday to a photoshoot organised by a friend and, well, highlighted where they rub... oh well, masking tape + tissue = plaster 2.0 and my saviour right now! i also cooked a lovely bit of comfort food, which i'm about to have for lunch now (+ an avocado, some cheese & lettuce) - adapted from the ever-lovely julie's recipe for winter squash crumble. i added some bacon (catering for the non-veggies we are) and mushrooms, and used parsley in place of thyme as we had none. it was blooming good! part of my exploration of new recipes... tonight we're having moroccan meatballs and herby cous cous! yum!

feeling warm (and sleepy)

good morning! we had such a lovely weekend (late dinner last night of fish pie and matthew's "i did it the proper french way" chocolate cake (it was blooming good) and a lot of lusting over these shoes in topshop on high street ken)

anyway for now (must get back to work! assessment tomorrow!) here's my mood in pictures and matthew from sunday. have a lovely day!

feeling colourful

sorry for the absence, i've been so busy with work and things! my portfolio is chugging a little too slowly for my tuesday assessment (panic panic PANIC) and i bought a new red skirt from cos. i'd show you but i'm too lazy to take a picture of it right now! today we've been wandering around high street ken, and i found some all together too nice boots in topshop (fantasising about selling some of my belongings to justify buying them) and covered myself in rose nuit de mai in l'occitane - total favourite smell for the last few months. might ask for it for christmas from matthew, my parents are getting me a landon metz painting!!!!!!! i'll spill the beans later.

for now, here's a song that i unashamedly dance to in cos. it's by a man named orlando higginbottom (the only name rival i've found to that was a man we met in cardiff called - and i kid you not (we checked his i.d.) nickodemus longbottom) and is pretty bloody fantastic. he also dances a bit like me (which i'm reassured by) and looks a little like eddie redmayne sometimes (serious famous-person-crush there). can't go wrong! enjoy.
