This was possibly our most stressful performance project (up until our Graduation show came along anyway!) But it was also possibly one of our best performance projects. I miss these songs. And I miss singing with you all.
Love you 3MT (Musical Theatre) x
We are Ladies what lunch! ..”Tea for two, Madam?”
The weekend Hannah came to stay :) [09.02.13] – I had been wanting to visit this little tea shop for soooooo long, that I was thrilled to bits to finally have the perfect excuse!!!! The food was delicious and the cakes divine. I had lovely company, and the interior is so quaint; I was in heaven. The service was a little disappointing, however the ladies (waitresses) looked the part with their little pinnies and sweet vintage styled hair do’s!
If you are ever in Brighton, it is definitely the perfect little hide away for cream tea’s and warming yourself in this freezing cold February weather.
Hannah and I have been friends since before we can even remember.
Having parents with friends who live near by and just so happen to have babies around the same time – knowingly or unknowingly – set those children up for some life long friendships.
Hannah and I were born within a few months of each other. H being the oldest; she celebrates her birthday in September and I popped into the world in 6 months later in March. Like a little spring lamb ;)
For years to come, H and I were destined to be best friends. We were a pram apart and lived mere moments away from each other for the first few years of our lives, until our parents jobs altered things and moved us away from each other. Not that that changed much. Growing up, we saw each other a few times a year as our Mum’s took it in turns to drive the 3 hour journey to each others houses. The grown ups would spend their time discussing grown up things, while we would spend our time building blanket forts, playing with dollies and barbies, dressing up the dogs in silly outfits, practicing piano, playing on the swing, riding our bikes and tormenting our younger brothers!
But then of course, secondary school happened. And then not long after that University. And things just started getting harder to arrange. Until suddenly we realised, that we hadn’t seen each other in a year! An entire year!?! Communicating rarely and briefly over Facebook became all too common, until one day we decided, enough was enough. We had to see each other in person!
And that we did :)
How I love and miss this room when I am away.
Emptied my dressing table earlier and turned it into a desk! How I love sitting at it. A warm cup of tea, lamps on to trick my brain that it’s not bed time yet and The Sound of Music DVD playing in the background. Oh and every now and again, that cheeky monkey of a dog likes to join me! Just look at that fluffy pup :)
I know I am a little bit late for a new diary, but I just couldn’t resist this gorgeous diary from Paperchase! This was my last ‘splurge’ of spending, and it was bought as an incentive to get organised!! I am still yet to write in it as I am scared of ruining it’s lovely pages. (what a geek, huh!) But today, I am taking the pen by the..horns? and going to scribble away to my heart’s content!
I have jumped on another trending band wagon! All you fellow apple/droiders can now find me on Vine!

If any of you are playing around with this app too, please say! I’d love to see some more videos! :)
So I missed the first of February, Pancake day!? AND I was late to wish the internet all kinds of Valentines day Love!??! What have I been doing?!!! Well, I can tell you what I have been doing, a whole load of nothing. Days and days have been wasted. Life has drifted past me the last few weeks and I have no real excuse as to why I let it be so.
But! I have finally come to see that now is the time to sort it all out. I am ready.
Life throws us curve balls all the time that can often knock us off our [once] straight and rather clear path. Learning to deal with these changes, can sometimes take a while and you shouldn’t be too hard on yourself when that happens.
I have been trying to tell myself for weeks, that it’s ‘ok’ to your time when this happens. And it is! Of course in life, we all have our priorities; bills, family, work.. and all of that can regularly become to much. So when it does, it is ok to take your time to get your head around it!! No one is perfect, and – trust me – no one is judging you! However you choose to deal with your life is ok! Just remember not to loose sight of what is important and don’t shut out those closest to you. Stop, breathe, listen, relax and then [when you're ready] DO!!!
I write this while sitting tucked away behind a counter in a little shop, hidden within the windy and narrow paths of the South Laines. And, I have to say, it feels quite idillic. Accompanied with a cup of tea and the sining of the radio. If only the sun would decide to join us. You can’t have it all I guess, eh!
Happy Saturday! Hoping you have a great weekend :)
Happy Valentines one and all!
I have recently been neglecting my little blog.
For which I deeply apologise to it.
I have been feeling rather uninspired as of late, but it’s onwards and upwards!
More photos, more writing and more smiles to come :)
Until then, I hope you all had a glorious Thursday and that it was filled with love and happiness.
