A Catch-Up In Pictures

I’ve been meaning to blog for a while, but for some reason, keep putting it off. So here is a little recap of the past two weeks for you while I try to remember about the Race for Life and write it down. Blogger fail.

The queues for the museum on the first day of the Banksy exhibit. Two weekends later, the queues seem to be worse!

They’re not so good at being a top secret rogue agency if they have a banner on a shop off Whiteladies Road.

Topshop does it again with corsages that were bigger than my face.
I kinda want one.

The wife took me on a date to celebrate doing the Race for Life and bought me an ice cream mountain. I could only manage half.

My headaches have been getting so bad, I am taking a pack of these every day.
Of course, the doctor has been a real help. Can you sense the sarcasm there?

Randomly found these chemistry books by the train station last week. An excited student trying to get rid of them?

Pints of tea are the only way to survive train journeys.

Although VitaminWater also helps. I like this one the best. Mostly because it sends me a little hyper and tastes a bit like Um Bongo. I miss Um Bongo.

Who doesn’t love strawberries dipped in chocolate (and then eaten with raspberry sorbet)?

Five Things

Ah, meme time. Not at all a way for me to procrastinate from doing something useful.

The very lovely Zoe gave me five words she wants me to explain more. The words she gave me were ceriselle, crafty, tea, Bristol, race-for-life (“hey, if I use hyphenation it’s one word :-P”)

So!

ceriselle
ceriselle is the name of my website (well, its a nameless site, thats the domain name. I get confused on that sometimes.) I’ve had this domain name for a few years now, and it replaced halcyonic.org. ceriselle is a made up word, from the French words cerise which means cherry and elle which is normally a female thing (its been a while since my French classes) I like it because its a very curvy word! And why is it in lower case? Because it just looks a bit odd to me when its capitalised!

Crafty
I’ve always been a bit of a crazy crafty lady. The earliest thing I can remember doing is some jewellery making when I was about 7. I don’t just mean threading plastic beads onto a bit of elastic, but making earrings with fish wires and head pins. I picked up jewellery making again when I was looking after my mum in 2005 (it was something to do in the day, not working is surprisingly dull!)

Tea
Tea is a massive part of my life. Honestly. I couldn’t make it through the day without at least 3 cups. I think the true addiction started in our final year at university, when I lived with Zoe’s husband James. We would take it in turns, along with another housemate Ed to make tea – we got through many many cups, especially around essay and exam times!

Bristol
I’ve written about why I chose to move to Bristol a few times, there are just so many reasons why I am here! My dad and his wife live about a mile away, quite a lot of my friends from uni live around here and its just so different to Chester (my home city) in so many ways!

Race for Life
Of course, Race for Life is an important thing to me at the moment. Cancer Research is something I support because my mum and both my grandfathers died from various smoking related cancers. (Its also why I hate smokers, obviously). Doing the Race for Life is my way of supporting a charity I like. The other charities I support are Macmillian and Help for Heroes.

If you would like to take part, comment on this entry and I shall try to think of five things I want to know more about from you!
