burgers and a boyfriend

I'm coming to the last of my green jelly, and all I want now is real food. or nutella.
[I found some of my food pictures. I can hardly keep going down the green-jelly road when I look at these]

what the heck? How is this a food picture? [its lovely to look at all the same]

ohgosh. the weather outside is wonderful. I just want to be at the beach- in the sun. not inside under my blanket with a headache. [the weekend is almost upon us!! something to make me happier]
peace out x

a jelly monster

Happy wednesday. Goodness, I can't believe the week is more than half way to being over. It's been a long week. I've been in bed with a throat infection since Monday [this is not all bad as my mother has made an endless supply of jelly for me] but after 2days in bed I felt bleh. So this afternoon I went crazy with nailpolish and hair masks and face masks- in the hope of making myself feel like I look better than I do.

[many episodes of the metalist and sex&the city has helped too]

And I've made some headway in Maia by richard Adams- which was painful in the beginning (mostly because It's all about the life of girl sex slaves- not the most amazing topic)

[tries to think of something witty to say but hunger gets the better of her, jelly and red velvet cupcakes are not an ideal breakfast!]

And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the Daffodils

As much a I try to convince myself that it's getting warmer, the weather seems to be working hard to oppose my happy thoughts. [Happily though, monday is almost over! and it's less than 3weeks until September holidays] [I haven't done this in a long time] happy cupcake monday! The cupcakes below are pumpkin cupcakes. ah! How I wish they were in my tummy right now. Yesterday G & i were reading poetry and when i read this to him i'd forgotten how much i loved it. [it reminds me of summer]

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

how to: not get your work done

Its thursday, my favourite day of the week, and I'm making toasted sandwiches which will go very nicely with the episode of the mentalist that I'm going to watch [to try and distract myself from my workload] So the other day G, who is always full of good ideas, suggested that I start a new blog- while keeping this one- on food. What do you think?

[I am working through Micah at the moment and so far these verses are still the ones that stand out the most]

"Look! The LORD is coming from his dwelling place;
he comes down and treads on the heights of the earth

The mountains melt beneath him
and the valleys split apart,
like wax before the fire,
like water rushing down a slope."
[Micah 1:3-4]

what amazing imagery. I hope your thursday is lovely x

post-sunday-lunch wafflings

This week I found our first spring blossoms [on the jasmine tree] I cannot believe that winter is almost over [and uncharacteristically of me, I can't wait for summer]Today I wore flowers in my hair & listened to jax pannik while I got dressed- I've been listening to them all week, their music makes me feel fierce.

Tomorrow G&I have been going out for 6months, which, when I think about it makes me so happy [I feel like it's been a lot longer than that] & I couldn't have dreamed up a better young man.

its been an icy could week. [i have found a new favourite blog]


My food has reached my brain, which is now demanding naptime. sleeptight all x
