Hey there!

So apparently it's been almost a month since I last updated this blog. Oops. Sometimes I trick myself into thinking I've posted something when I just haven't. But anyway, here you go.

As much as I'm hating the fact that winter has reared it's ugly head once again, I figured it at least gave me an opportunity to wear this jumper again, so I embraced the snow. Very briefly. Then I ran back inside into the warmth. Thank goodness for central heating.

I really hope this is the last snowfall we get, at least until Christmas! The novelty has most definitely worn off and I'd really love some warmer weather! Anyway, hopefully I'll be booking a holiday soon - when and where, I don't know, but that's not the point. I need a break!

Jumper: Linea at House of Fraser (Christmas gift)

A little something to remember

Today, The Oatmeal posted a comic about a topic close to my heart. Go read it!

A tale of insomnia

Last night I felt a little bit poorly when I got into bed, so was finding it difficult to get to sleep. So I got my i-pod and put on The Silver Seas because their songs are so gentle that I thought it would help me sleep. And I was right, when the album finished, I turned off my i-pod and was feeling nice and relaxed, and was just about to drift off when inexplicably, the scene from The NeverEnding Story when Atreyu's horse drowns in the mud popped into my head. Suddenly, I'm not only wide awake, but filled with sadness from this movie scene which traumatised my childhood. 

So anyway, after that, I drove myself crazy trying to think of the horse's name (it's Artax, I had to look it up today - I just couldn't think of it). Then I started humming along to the score of the movie in my head, and all of a sudden it was nearly 4am and I was still awake.

I hate nights like that. But I now really want to watch The NeverEnding Story.

Currently reading: Linger. I accidentally lied in my last post, I was still reading Shiver but I got the titles mixed up.

25 facts about me, 21-25

This is way overdue, and my Dad gave me most of these (plus extra, which I'm not including because they're super embarrassing - why do parents have to remember everything?!).

21. For my 9th birthday (or thereabouts) I had a pool party on our compound in Saudi. One of my friends had bought me a new pool toy; it was like an inflatable caterpillar chair or something. I really liked it anyway, and when we got to the pool to have the party, my Dad got into the water and tried to jump up and sit on this caterpillar chair and the seat part of it popped, leaving me with just an inflatable caterpillar head. I was distraught and hysterically cried for ages, quickly eradicating any guilt my dad felt by overreacting to such an extreme. But the injustice of it all - I didn't get to play with it once! Another traumatic experience from my childhood.

22. We were on holiday in Sri Lanka when I was little and in our hotel I got into a lift on my own for some reason, leaving my parents frantically trying to find me while I hopped from floor to floor.

23. When I was small I used to make up songs about what I was doing and just sing them. There's video evidence of this. I was a musical prodigy.

24. Another Kenyan safari story - at the beginning of our 3 hour safari, I vomited on the floor of the van which I'm sure made it a wonderfully smelly journey for everyone else on the trip!

25. I used to prefer rainy days to sunny days. I think a lot of that came from living in Saudi for most of my childhood, where it is sunny the majority of the time, so it was always a novelty when it rained. Now I like an even balance between the two. I do still love a good rainy day though.

So that's it, that's my 25 facts, although it was more like 25 childhood memories! How people managed to come up with 50 is beyond me!
