TiLT – 4 September 08

1. Chain links, Clifton suspension bridge, 2. Sugar Plums, 3. Cupcat, 4. hot pink cupcake with black bow, 5. 2am donuts, 6. IMG_2518, 7. zodiac mosaic – virgo, 8. Basket o Shoes, 9. .959.

Everythings just super at the moment, I am feeling all content and good and stuff!

  • Weddings! So we had Dad’s wedding in July (which I meant to write about and put lots of photos up here, but I forgot. It was just a crazy day, lots of drinking and motorbikes. And Dad’s beard was cut off and lots of money was raised for our friends baby who is all poorly) and then theres a wedding in October that I’m looking forward to quite a bit (can’t believe its so soon! I’ve not even bought a dress yet!) Then last night, I found out that my friends who were supposed to be getting married in a few years have brought the date forward to February! So soon! I spent an hour and a half chatting on the phone last night to the bride, discussing whats going to happen (because I’m special) and lets just say, its going to be AWESOME.
  • Accounting Geek Reunion 2: Return of the Geek 08. Last year, Adam, Deanne, Louise and I all gathered in the ‘Creech and had a reunion which involved mooses milk, Wii and cider. I’m planning another reunion next year, and its gonna be bigger, better and more mooses milk fueled.
  • New Jobs. I started a new job last Tuesday, out in Stoke Gifford (or as I like to call it, the Giff) and it is infinitly better than the data entry stuff I was doing in the centre of Bristol. I’m working in the IT department, basically sending people things they want and telling them if they can’t have it. I’m really enjoying it (I know, its only been 2 weeks, but you can still tell can’t you?). The only downsides to the job are that (a) its out in the Giff. Which was the commute I wasn’t happy to do last time. Things are a bit easier now I live closer to the train station though and (b) I can wear what I like to work, which might not seem like a bad thing, but I am crap at choosing outfits. Ah well, I’ll just have to go shopping!
  • Cabot Circus! Its getting closer, closer and closer! I am stupidly excited about the opening of lots of shops, etc. I have heard rumours that its not going to be ready on time – GWR (the local radio station) keeps saying about when it will open and apparently on the site, everyone just laughs because they think they are a month behind schedule. Noooooooo!  Don’t do this to me!
  • Photography. I seem to be going forward with the whole photos thingy, and its very exciting! I would love to know more stuff though, and would go on a course if it could show you how to take interesting photos, not just technically good photos. Am I just babbling now?

Anyway, time to go get a train and read the Metro. Theres another good thing about commuting!

TiLT – 21 August 08

Wow, its been a while since I’ve done one of these!

1. colourful happiness, 2. pretty maids, 3. Mini cup cake collection 2, 4. pink/red thursday (4), 5. a quote, 6. flickr HANAMI

  • Black Kids! I’m going to see them tonight at the Thekla, and I can’t wait! I just wish I could take my decent camera with the super awesome lens. Ah well, it just gives me a chance to try out the new camera.
  • Birthday Shenanigans. Hang on, that needs some exclamation points. And caps. BIRTHDAY SHENANIGANS!!!!! I’ll be 25 on the 12th Sept, and have sorted out a weekend of funness. Friday we’ll be out in Bristol centre, working our way down Park Street, and ending up in a drunken stupor at Ramshackle. Saturday day, we’ll probably go to the zoooooo and or go shopping. Saturday night, I’m hoping for a super old school houseparty, with giant bottles of wine, random stealing missions (cups down the pants!) and crazy dancing. Unfortunately there are no horses up on the Wells Road, so we can’t feed horsies vodka and coke.
  • Helen is coming to Bristol for my birthday! (and thus should be a point on her own because she’ll beat me up) as are Rachel and Gemma (although I’m not sure how definite they are at the moment!)
  • “We Used To Be Friends” – It seems odd to link this into the above point, but its one of mine and Helens favourite songs. Not least because of the amazing dance we have to it, or that its the theme tune to our favourite TV show, Veronica Mars.

    A long time ago, we used to be friends // But I haven’t thought of you lately at all.
  • Macs! Not just the computers, but in this super summery weather (i.e. torrential rain) I’m very thankful I have my new coat from Topshop that keeps me snuggly dry and is pretty damn cute as well. It makes me feel dressed up even when I just chuck it on over my PJ’s to run down to Tesco for milk.
  • Hot Chocolate. Oooh. Definitely something thats kept me going through this weather. There is a drinks machine in work thats (thankfully) free. Number 55, Chocomilk, om nom nom nom.
  • Weddings. I got an invite for two very lovely peoples wedding which is in a few months, and I can’t wait because it will be super awesomeness. I’m already looking at dresses, in a sort of 50’s style. The diet starts after the birthday. But looking for dresses can happen all the time!
  • Chris Moyles. The highlight of my morning! I’m listening to him at the moment, and I just can’t help but laugh! I’ve been listening to him since he was on the afternoon show back in 2000 (bloody hell, when I was in Lower Sixth!) and now since I can leave my flat 10 mins before I start work, I can listen to most of the show. Gotta love the parodies!

TiLT – 26th June 2008

I thought I would start doing a weekly sort of post, to sort of sum up the cool things about the week, and I remembered about this semi-meme on iCiNG (I love the site, but man, that was actually painful to type like a 13 year old tEeNy.)

So, here are the things I love this week:

1. vintage tea set with cupcake, 2. IMG_2202, 3. Cocktail train, 4. Rocotillos, 5. IMG_0755.JPG, 6. First steps, 7. IMG_2135, 8. 9 Oct 2007 : Candy Floss Pink!, 9. suck up! a.k.a. you suck! :)

  • Tea – Tea will never leave my love list. Its the best thing ever. It calms you down, it wakes you up in the morning. I’m sitting here now with a mug of PG Tips in a (shh) Starbucks mug that accidently dropped into one of my bags a few years ago. I’ve tried to use other mugs at home, but somehow, it just doesn’t taste right.
  • Lip Gloss – I have no idea why I love lip gloss so much, but I have like two trays in my make up box of just lip colours, balms, glosses, sticks, pencils, etc. And most of the time I forget to put it on. My most recent purchase was the new L’Oreal Infallible Lip Colour, which has been made into a more handbag friendly case. And it stays on for aaaaaages. (I realise thats kinda the point, but shh)
  • Clifton – Its a more affulent area of Bristol, where students of the University of Bristol also normally live. I lived there a few years ago, the last time I lived in Bristol, and its somewhere where I just feel quite relaxed. Its so close to the centre, its so beautiful, and they have gorgeous little shops where you can just poke around in and find little sparkly things for the house and yourself. Ooh, my favourite.
  • Glastonbury – Yes, its Glasto this weekend. It’s not really my thing to go and sit in a muddy field, but I am looking forward to the coverage on the BBC, the themed nights out (Ramshackle is having a “Glasto-Shackle” where you get in for £2 if you wear wellies. I’m tempted, but its not much of a bargain if I have go and buy wellies first) and because Bristol is the closest big city, random acts will be stoppin by and doing gigs and that – Franz Ferdinand were playing at the Thekla on Wednesday, sadly I couldn’t get tickets (argh!)
  • Meeting New People – I did some temping last week for a few days, but met some new people, we went for drinks last week, and we’re hoping to go out tomorrow night. Its actually quite nice to be getting out of the flat!

What is making you happy this week then?
