Always The Sun

I almost feel guilty posting these photos. The majority of outfit photos I’ve seen lately have been taken with a snowy background, but in Bristol. we’ve had reasonably nice weather.


Top: Oasis | Skirt: ASOS* | Shoes: ASOS* | Glasses c/o LensWay

It’s still pretty damn cold here though, so I’ve been layering up – I feel a bit Michelin Man with three pairs of tights on! I love this skirt from ASOS, it’s as scarily pink in real life as it is in the photo!

This weekend has been reasonably productive for me – I’ve gotten lots of little jobs around the house done as I’ve been home alone. Two trips to Ikea, and I have enough storage to make things look nice and tidy, along with the beginnings of a herb garden. This is what happens when you get old. You get excited about gardening.

So, what have you been up to this weekend?

O Tannenbaum


So, another week or so and I forgot to update while on “holiday”. Oops.

I hope you all had a great Christmas break. We pretty much missed all of the fun, having landed at Heathrow at half 6 in the morning after a dreadful flight from New York with American Airlines (like I needed confirmation that I wouldn’t want to fly with them again!) then got a hire car and drove back to Bristol. (Same hire company that lent the boyfriend a SUV (I think a Chrysler Aspen? in California would only let him have a Vauxhall Corsa with an extra cost because he’s a “young driver”. Oh dear. He wasn’t too happy about the Corsa, since he normally drives a BMW!)

I went back up to Chester on Monday (as soon as the trains were running!) and spent a few days with my parents in their new pub and seeing Four Feet (current aim is to get all four in one room soon – maybe when we go see Take That in Manchester?) but am now back in Bristol with lots of photos to work through, lots of things to say, and a lot of mess to tidy up (because the boy decided to be productive while I was away and rearrange the whole house. I have my own office now, but that means there are boxes of STUFF everywhere. Ugh.

Oh, and thats the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree – so pretty (although I heard one girl say it was ugly because “it doesn’t have any ornaments on it” Riiiiiiight.)

Bullet (Point) Time

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the sound of a Hayley who is feeling so very very…well, meh

It feels like everything thats been going on in the past few weeks – hell, the past few months! – has finally caught up with me and hit me with a good dose of exhaustion, aches and a little tonsillitis just for a laugh. Oh, and eczema. Which is new.

So, in brief, because I’m a lazy biatch, here’s some bullet points of things that are happening

  • I’m off to t’Creech (which is a teeny little village just past Shepton Mallet, or Mallayyyy if you are being exotic) this weekend to help Louise out with some wedding stuff. I honestly can’t wait, because not only do I get to spend a weekend crafting, playing on the Wii and teasing the kittin, I also get to spend time with Lou Lou and drink gin and have her tell me I have been a silly moo cow.
  • I am far too excited about getting away from the city. I feel like theres something wrong with me.
  • Work is good at the moment, playing with lots of computers (and was far far too excited last Friday when three 24″ iMacs appeared. I lined them up on my desk and tried to keep them. Unfortunately pretty much everyone who went past me said I couldn’t try and steal one. What, like I was going to shove it up my top?!)
  • I’ve worked out a deal with Tim at work where I make the boys coffee, and he doesn’t make fun of me. As he said, a flaw in his personality is working out well for him, but I am enjoying the relative peace and quiet.
  • I had an excellent random night out last Friday, where the original plan was to meet Charlie for a glass of wine after work, but which turned into drinking half a bottle of wine, cocktails, a looot of vodka and some gin. Oh dear. Bad girl.
  • I am on a proper old school music kick at the moment. Right now I’m listening to Savage Garden. I remember buying their debut album in Little Rock, AR 10 years ago exactly on tape. Man, I am oooooold.
  • I am keeping up with my Project 365, although my pictures are a bit yawn at the moment cause of the lack of energy. Suuuuuuucks.
  • I am in LOVE with the new series of Scrubs. Seriously. If you’re a Scrubs fan (and honestly, who isn’t?) get watching Series 8 because it is Ah. Maz. Ink. Episode 2 set me off into tears, and actually, Episode 4 did a bit too. I am such a girl.
  • Speaking of being a girl, I ordered a hula hoop last night, in the greatest colour combination ever – sparkly pink and blue. It fills me with a scary amount of gleeeeeee! I informed Ed of this last night and he said I was such a girl. Um, well, I kinda hope so, because otherwise these things that make my tops go out quite a bit would be a bit wrong.
  • I don’t get why theres such a fuss about British celebrities all getting on the Twitter bandwagon. The thing I find weirdest are those who will @reply to the celebs to try and get a response. Maybe not weird, but a little sad.
  • The iPhone is just the best thing to have ever – I can blog, check my eBay and tweet from anywhere. Which means I do just because I can. Standing by the cheese counter in Sainos? Time to check if I’m still winning that scanner.

I’m so exhausted that its half 9 and I need to go to bed. Utter, utter fail.
