Pinterest: Love this (part 1 of three)*

As I've mentioned before, one of the reasons I *love* Pinterest is it's usefulness. Recipes, ideas, tips all abound. However, there's also funny stuff, touching stuff, inspiring stuff...and that, along with anything else I really enjoy, ends up on the 'Love This' board!


I love love love this song and thinking of it always conjures up sweet memories. When I was having a tough time over some stuff last year (deliciously vague, non?) a sweet friend sent me the lyrics to Pink's 'Raise Your Glass'. As someone who has always been a bit of a quirkster, it totally hit the spot and made me smile, and now whenever I hear the song I get a little warm and fuzzy feeling inside. Thank you, sweet Jenga!


I found this idea too late for 2012, but I might start it late anyway! Every time you have a moment that makes you smile over the year, you jot it down and pop the paper in this jar. At the end of the year you pull out all the slips and look back on all the loveliness the year has held!


I love the "hey girl" series, and the teacher based ones often hit veeeeeery close to the bone! JGL feels me, yo.


At the moment, this seems to be me every Friday night, ha!


I'm 5'5", which is the short side of average, and I've had to do this many, many times. Ach well, builds people skills, right?



I used to have a party trick where I'd do a Cookie Monster impression (hot tip: the fewer bites of cookies you take, the more realistic it looks!), and he always makes me chuckle. I have this cartoon on my wall in school.

Old school.


And to finish up, this is adorable. This little boy was born unable to hear, but a cochlear implant has made him able to hear. This video shows his reaction to first hearing voices. Warning - it's adorable (I wept!).

*Yes, I'm such a fan of silly/touching/sweet there are three parts to this post!


  1. These are fantastic! Short people = me. Shorter than you, I believe. And I LOVE the Cookie Monster cartoon!

  2. Thanks sweetie! I love collecting sillies on Pinterest!


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.

If you'd like to work together, or if you'd just like to say hello, my email is:
