Just Wishin'

At the moment Jon and I are saving up to move to another city, and all the fun stuff that goes with that, so obviously all our spare money is going straiiiiiiight into our savings account! So that just leaves me to go on websites window shopping all into all sorts of different stuff that I'm gunna have to wait for. Such a hard life eh?!

Here they are:
  1.  A few weeks ago I got a fitbit, and whilst I love it, it's not the daintiest. I looked different straps on amazon and found THIS beeeeeeautiful rose-gold one.
  2. My bag at the moment is a teeeeny tiny sparkly back pack, which is useful for most days, except on a day when I'm at work because it's so small my lunch doesn't fit in it! This bag would be great because not only is it simple, but it's mahusive! Great for big lunches! 
  3. This one, quite simply, was on our Jon and I's wedding list for our bedside tables, and as a result we were only bought one! Haha! We just need the other one to match!
  4. I have a big pink fluffy dressing gown that I love. But I saw this one, which is made out of towel material. Just think, getting out if the shower and wrapping up in a dressing gown shaped towel?!?! YES PLEASE!
  5. I saw this on a friend's fridge. It's magnetic and a whiteboard and you can write on it the meals you've planned to have in the week, and your shopping list and I think it's great!
  6. At the moment I epilate all my unwanted hair, which is ok but is sooo not good for ingrown hairs! They're all over my legs! Could an IPL hair remover thing-ma-bob be the answer?! I don't know because it's expensive. But I'd LOVE to try it one day! 
  7. I know this is boring, but a stainless steel dish drying rack seems ideal. We have a purple plastic one at the moment and it gets grubby so quickly! Ahh adult life! 
  8. I have ALWAYS wanted a big professional camera. And now I'm making youtube videos regularly, I have double reasons for wanting a good quality camera. 
  9. A big chested lady can never have too many decent bras, and all mine are so old they're missshapen (attractive!). 2 basic t-shirt bras would be great. 
And that's it. Maybe once we've moved and saved I can go on a massive shopping spree and get all these. Or maybe I'll just keep wishin.

I have a cold, a spot on the bridge of my nose, I'm watching FRIENDS and I'm waiting for my nails to dry.

I had a revelation yesterday.

I read a quote from someone famous that said "I'm not a morning person. But I'm not really much of a night person either." And I realised that that's me. I get cranky when I stay up late, but I'm also cranky in the morning. And that's ok. It's also ok to not know whether you are an introvert or an extrovert. I don't know either. Sometimes I love being around people, and sometimes I love being alone. And that's ok.

People are so diverse; not just as individual people to one another, but also as individual people. One day I could feel one way, and the next day I would feel completely different. And that's ok.

I'm not a morning person, and I'm not a night owl. I'm not an extrovert or an introvert.

London for Work

7:30: So. I'm sitting on a train.  It's half 7 and I've been up since 6 even though I had rehearsal till midnight last night. I'm on my way to London to go to somewhere for work, although I have no idea what it is. All I have is a postcode. I've never been to London by myself before, and the last time I came was two years ago. This could be interesting. Feeling a little tired and anxious to say the least... 
11:04: I got to the place where I needed to be 40 minutes early, signed in and told the receptionist that I knew I was ridiculously early so I didn't mind waiting. I waited for 20 minutes until the receptionist came and found me and said "hey, I'm really sorry but the event's been cancelled. We sent your manager an email on Monday to let everyone know" 

So now I'm in London with nothing to do. It feels a waste to go straight home but I don't know what I want to do. 

11:07: So I was on the tube ready to go home, and the lady on the the tube just said, "Change here for the museum of London" Sure, why not! I hope it's free!

11:09: Just got beeped at and almost killed by a motorbike cos I didn't look before I crossed the road. I forgot the crayzee roads of London.

11:04: Yes!! It's free!

11:20: Stuck in the museum of London. Literally no idea how to get out. There're so many primary school children. 

11:29: There were so many children and so much information it was hard to concentrate, so I'm off to the national gallery. 

11:37: My phone crashed. Twice.

12:07: Entered the national gallery.

13:03: I've just left, inspired by creativity and now I'm going home.

13:11: I tripped. Awkward.

13:32: Tripped again. This time up the stairs in the underground, I almost landed on two ladies and one gasped. Very awkward. 

13:55: Tripped up the escalator in Paddington station. This is getting ridiculous now.

14:10: Got a coffee before boarding the train back home. 

14:16: Walked into a closing door on the train, making quite a loud bang noise. I just carried one as if nothing had happened...

16:44: Got off the train, and now going home. 

That was a wierd day, but I learnt that I'm a badass who can do London and the tubes, even if I trip up a lot.
