Little moments of bliss....

Life's fairly bumpy on some big things at the mo - it's one of those time where some plates seem to be shifting and all you can do is knuckle down, hold fast, and wait for the calm to return. I think it's on it's way. And I know, as always, that a few stresses and strains are par for the course, and that blessings are there for the counting. Here are just a few that are totally making me smile at the moment:

The Elbow song 'One Day Like This' ( Thank me later :-)). How can you resist the lyrics "Holy cow, I love your eyes...."?

Arranging scavenger hunts for my class - they love it!

My lovely, lovely friends. How blessed am I? I am consistently spoilt with texts and calls and emails and letters and love and comments, and I have people in my life to love and care about and share things with. I love my friends.

I am going to see the Foo Fighters tomorrow. At Wembley. Oh heck YES! When they play this song ( I just don't know what I'll do. Love them so, so much, and I only got tickets on Thursday! The gig sold out ages ago, but they released a few thousand tickets this week. And I got two, for Mlle Wilson and I. So, so thrilled!

Tomorrow, there's no Saturday school. So instead I can lie in, write a few reports, come in and straighten up my classroom...then go to London.

Hugs and kisses and cuddles. Mmmmmmm.

Mix CDs. Especially awesome ones!

Looking at photos of recent fun (and less recent fun) and just remembering how wonderful the people around me are.

Good books, and the chance to curl up and read them.

Planning stuff for the Summer of Fabulosity. Oh, it's so on.

And now, it's 8 o'clock Friday, I've worked my socks off all day, and now there's a bottle of wine and some take out with my name on it. Brilliant.

Have an amazing weekend, gorgeous folk!



  1. Ya for you! I am new to the blogshere. I am actually going to Austin Texas to see the Cure on Sunday! Can't wait. Have fun at the Foo Fighters concert!

  2. have an amazing weekend to you too cutie, xo

  3. Hey, enjoy - you deserve it - and having been through some major seismic shifting myself lately, things will settle down and be good. I promise!


  4. I tagged you for a meme, so you don't have to steal them anymore ;)


  5. I like the line "drinking in the morning sun." Hahahaha.

    Hope the Foos were awesome!

    Saturday school. IMHO those two words should *not* go together.

    Hope the bottle of wine was good, and go SOF (summer of fabulousity) go!

  6. Hope you have/had a fantastic weekend and enjoyed some lovely weather :-)

  7. Counting your blessings...oh, yeah! That bottle of wine and take out sounds perfect right about now. I've been sick and need some food brought to me (a bottle of red wouldn't hurt either!).

  8. I hope you enjoyed the foo fighters!

  9. I think a post-concert review is in order, and that's a fine list of things that help when things turn sideways on you.


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

About Me

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.
