such lovely photos allover flickr. you can make your page your own palette of JOY.

join groups, and contribute to pools to really get into it. these are a few of my current favourites.

simple pleasures

me and nat won the plant on a church fete raffle up the road, lovely timed house warming present to our selves for a one pound strip of raffle tickets.
thank you st werbergh's.

pick-me-up pictures

never seen a picture ive loved so much. this is summer. bought it for 3 pounds from maureen's shop in the arcade in Otley soon to close down. just hope I find more of shops like her's to cheer me up on my days off galavanting around


a late update on the bunting i made last month. didnt both with hemming the edges, far too time consuming for my impatient self, so just used pinking shears on the edges, little tip i got from the 'homemade' book i bought my mum. its very addictive. i intend to make many more lengths of it.

also this is the last image I have taken of my room looking like this. After much deliberation I have begun packing. two weeks before my leave date. and now my room looks more like this...

the only thing that helps me cope with the boxes is

little men

went to london. was overwhelmed with tourist spirit and subsequently purchased some souvenirs

constantly dithering between wearing tights or not tights

EBAY innit

join the make pennies for bills club


so i live in leeds working as a waitress. not my dream job, however much i love the boys and girls of HN who make my day every day. but i make the most of my time going places. usually consisting of ikea, bradford, saltaire, lincoln, york, otley if its sunny, sheffield's suburbs and manchester if i want to shop, but this year since i work my life away i decided not to pay off my overdraft but go on holidayss. so far i ventured on trips to berlin, brighton, paris and london.

my pictures can be seen here

my room

a way to start a blog, how my room looked a few months ago. Alot busier on the walls now even though I move out in a few months and will have to take it all down and pretend I didn't put anything up according to the rental agreement. teehee. ah well i find it hard to live in a blank canvas.

I have paperchains bought from the lovely ROSE and co. probably the nicest shop in leeds when it comes down to it. leeds needs so many more like it.
