Three Things Thursday

Hello! I hope your week has been all sorts of fun and you find yourself full of gratitude today. My three things for this week are: Mr Cheerful. I have been all over the place mentally and things have been incredibly stressful, but this week wouldn’t have gone so well without Mr Cheerfuls help. SO I am extra thankful this week for his patience, love and support. Home Sweet Home. Today I finally booked my flights home and although I am feeling really anxious about going back after two years away, I’m VERY excited to get back home to my friends and family. Also during my first week, it’s my best friend’s birthday and she has no idea I’ll be there to celebrate with her. Can’t wait to surprise her. Job Offer. As I’ve mentioned before, one of my biggest fears was going back home to no job, and having nowhere to live. As of today one of those prayers has been answered as I got offered a job and one that I couldn’t be …

Weekly Photo Challenge #24: As Pure As Snow

In response to this week’s theme Pure, “Pure” can convey wholesomeness, something undiluted, or simplicity. The Daily Post Photo was taken in Nagano (Japan) earlier this year. It is a mountainous, landlocked prefecture in the centre of Honshu, belonging to the Chubu Region. Most famous for the Zenkoji temple and snow monkeys. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Weekly Photo Challenge #23: Got Your Number

In response to the theme Numbers. Photo taken in Edinburgh during their annual Fringe festival. These guys were dressed as 118 118 characters, which is a U.K directory enquires number. They have quite a history with catchy ads, two of the most memorable ones being: Their first ad back in 2002, involving two men dressed as athletic runners. Using the catchphrase “Got Your Number!” (Wikipedia) And My favourite one, where the runners appeared in the style of the television show The A-Team, using the A-Team theme tune with the number 118 sung over the music. (Wikipedia) I do love a catchy ad! Enjoy the rest of your day.

Three Things Thursday

Happy Three Things Thursday  I hope you are well? Below my little list of gratitude for the week, Unspoken Words. I woke up a few days ago with this quote from my best friend: sometimes the people who are thousands of miles away from you can make you feel better than the people right beside you.  She is currently going through something really difficult and I’ve felt really guilty for not being able to be there for her. So this message means the world! Knowing that despite the distance, she still feels like I am helping is a really good feeling. A Healthy Distraction: in Books. There’s no better feeling when everything is a little hectic, than finding a healthy distraction for a moment or two. Mine right now is the book I’m reading, Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. It’s beautifully written and I’m enjoying the fact that even though I’m more than halfway through, I still have no idea how it’ll end. Recommend a read, even if you REALLY hate cheesy YA books.. Positive …

Contemplation, Week 12

Hello! Welcome to week 12 of Contemplation, where Desley from musings of a frequent flying scientist, chooses a prompt from her Kikki.K  A Sentence a Day Journal and invites us to share our response. * my post from Week 11, here * Today’s prompt: Right now, I feel .. Anxious, because I’m still trying to essentially get my s*** together in order to go back home. Also because I just had a job interview for a specific role, one that I haven’t worked in two years. So all day I’ve been pacing up and down stress eating my way through the contents of our fridge. Although the interview is now over, I am still anxious but now about the outcome. Hopeful that soon things will calm down and work themselves out. That as exhausting as this rollercoaster of a year has been so far, something great is on its way. After writing it out, I feel relieved. How are you feeling today?
