Things I Like

1. I Knew You Were Trouble by Taylor Swift.  It's wrong how much I like her music, but I'm cool with it!  The video's a tad pretentious (skip to about the two minute mark for the cheesey pop goodness!), but there's very few things I won't forgive T.Swizzle.  I hope she tours in London again soon.

Every single song gets stuck in my head!

2. On the subject of music, this came up on my iPod the other day and made me smile.  It reminds me of the seminal cheesey teen film Get Over It; listening to indie music on grey, rainy, northern days; and my lovely friends Matthew and Siobhán, who had it as part of their wedding last year. :)

3. The fact that there's still a decent whack of holiday time left - time to read and relax and plan and prepare ahead of the return of the littles.

4. Taking time to exercise.  From today I'm doing a 100 day challenge where every day I have to exercise, even if it's just a 15 minute bimble during a non teaching period.

5. Planning new and fun lessons and tasks for the gang!

6. Books.  My reading challenge last year really reinvigorated me and I'm looking forward to lots of fun reading in the next few months.

7. Being back on Weight Watchers.  I hope I can keep my motivation up through January, because by then I think it will be a habit, and easier to do!

8. Long bracing walks listening to some of the cheesiest and most fabulous music ever created!

9. Thank you notes.  Fun to write, fun to receive.

10. Looking forward to trips and girldates and holidays as this year unfolds.

How about you?

  1. I love that Badly Drawn Boy song. I now think of M when I hear it (and my brother crying). Funnily enough on the day I barely noticed it as I was a bit overwhelmed at the moment it was playing!


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.
