This is one of them days when everything that could go wrong..

Didnt get to sleep till 5am, when the birds were singing
My phone was ringing and so I stumbled towards it and answered and it was my boss asking me if I realised I had work today..
And it was 10am
So with a croaky sore throat said Ill get my clothes on and give you a call when Im at the station
Franticly ran around throwing on clothes, and then realised before I ran out the door that I looked like a trucker
Then after getting the train my boss picked me up and literally less than a minute into getting into the shop I slipped and fell on a concrete floor and the pain went from the top of my arm down to my foot, and this was in front of a dozen or so customers all gaping and gasping simultaneously, and I just lay on the floor on my back with my legs in the air like a dog waiting to be tickled
For the next 3 hours I sat in whats basically just a shed, freezing my charlotte bits off, but was glad to be working again because Im skint
for my boss to then say right were shutting up the shop! meaning I was yet again only getting payed £12 as opposed to £35 =|
and finally, my boss drove me to the station and seeing as I only had two minutes till the train came I ran like mad and as I was running towards the train it pulled out, and I had to stand on the platform for 30 minutes till the next train. But I did ring Kate whilst sitting at the station and ranted for a while, until my phone went dead and cut us off :D

Favourite Films

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is the best film I'v ever watched, it transports you to another world and its one of them films that when it finishes you look at love and life differently, and you get wrapped up in its atmosphere

Elizabthtown is a film to watch if you like romance, but without the cheese, and an actual good story behind it, and isnt just centred on romance
watch this film :) its heartwarming, and one of my favourites :)

Amelie, which has now become a classic is a beautiful french film full of imagination and is an incredibly enjoyable film to watch

Factory Girl is about the life of Edie Sedgwick, she was the underground twiggy in 60's New York, Andy Warhols muse, and Boby Dylans lover
A great drama, it made me fascinated with Edie Sedgwick's life, and her fashion too

My mum trying on her wedding dress aged 19 in 1972, it was given to her by her auntie who who wore it for her wedding in the early 1950's and promised my mum she would keep it for hers. I really hope that no one has thrown it away and its still in an attic somewhere because If I ever get married Id love to wear it myself

In times like these we turn to Music, Literature and Art

Take a trip down the yellow brick road, I dont think youll find anything

Cracker Neclace

Urban Outfitters has an amazing collection of necklaces and lockets at the moment, and in trying to choose which one I wanted for christmas I ended up getting stuck between about five of them! But the one I picked in the end is the one I think is most me, its the Vintage Compass Necklace

Floating deadwood

Only enemies can speak the truth. Friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty.

I saw you today and realized how far apart we've grown. I know I should talk to you and ask you how your doing. And I really wish I could. But it's just occurred to me that we're strangers now. You dont know me anymore, much less want to.

Talk about it

Where is your phone: Upstairs in my room I think

Your hair: is currently brown, I think this is the longest Iv gone without dyeing my hair a different colour, a month or so it is :) But I am starting to daydream about blue haired people..
and it constantly in a pony tail that sticks out like I have an antena as Im growing it, goodbye pixie cut!

Your mother: Asleep in the spare room, as my dad snores are like a bomb going off every 2 seconds

Your father: I have a feeling he actually has a secret life as a hitman, his phone talk gives it away. Quite man except for when hes talking about roads. no hes funny too:), and has a pathetic exuse for an afro, its not an afro at all

Your favourite food: Pancakes, but not mine because I cant cook anything. And when I think Iv made a pancake I eat it and its some sort of omelette. Ready made microwave ones are the way to go!

Your dream from last night: I cant remember, but when I do dream theyre always bizzare and sinister. Its odd because I have really dark dreams but Im barely neurotic.

Your favourite drink: A good brew.

Your dream/goal: To travel and live in a few countries, have adventures

What room are you in: Computer room thats just wear we throw all the junk, broken doors and towers of balancing lamps, its a zen room.

What are your hobbies: Dancing more than anythinggg:) Even though the only time I dance is at parties and around my house when no ones home. A fixation with vintage clothess, and Iv started stretching my keyboard fingers.

What is your fear: Nothing springs to mindd, but I do have fears!

Where do you want to be in 6 years: 6 years, Ill be 23/24 so I really dont know. In a city like New York, Amsterdam or London. Happy, With a hot boyfriend ;), partying, having a job I lovee, living quite comfortably and travellingg when I can.
But probably the polar opposite will happen, Ill breed gerbils and work as the school caretaker.

Where were you last night: Last night is a bit of a blank!

Something you are not: Im not the elephant thats always sitting in the room with you. And Im not alot of other things!

Muffins: I always get bored half way through, I prefer the idea of muffins to actually eating them.

Wish list items: >Faux leopard print coat
>vintage brown faux fur coat
>a book or two
> Ynot photos, a battery charger for my camera which is one of those things which you need and have done for months but never ever will get round to it
>lots and lots of dvds for when my tv eventual gets here, oh and an old squishy sofa for my room to go with:)

Where did you grow up: Here in Little Sutton, since I was a neonyte.

Last thing you did: Besides the computer I came down here to find out which button on my keyboard would make single finger chords. I gave up.

What are you wearing: white tights, a grey vest, black vest, and a pair of zebra print hotpants.. I dont know how I got this way

Your TV: is still in the post! and I want it so badly!

Your pets: Dougal, has reallly big saucer eyes. He has a thing for carrying out daily escape missions and today I caught him dog fighting in the rain when I thought he was napping.

Your friends: I have Old, new and somewheree in between. Im gonna start collecting some more I think!

Your life: Its okay, mildly good mildly not great. I kinda just want it to be next year, but at this moment Im actually feeling pretyy content and happy.

Your mood: Content, fairly good mood but im tireed

Missing someone: Ehh yes. But I think forever lost!

Vehicle: I want a three wheeler electric bike like my nans got. But no I dont have a car, I have to get trains. I cant wait to live in a city, somewhere that dosent take 3 trains to get to somewhere 20 minutes away.

Something you're not wearing: theres alot of things im NOT wearing. Im not wearing Kevin my koala bear, wait that sounds really really weird for people who dont know of Kevin.

Your favourite store: Raiders Vintage in Liverpool, and Pop Boutique.

Your favourite colour: Red.

When's the last time you laughed: I laughed at this welsh guy on the Graham Norton show saying he wanted to hold his baby first when he was born because he wanted it to be like the lion king.

When's the last time you cried: I always cry at films and tv. I even get moved by things like a good dance sequence. But I really rarely cry in real life so I think it makes up for it. I think it may have been the Gilmore Girls...

Your best friend: Katie Magee

All things leopard, except actual leopards

Lately Iv had a crazed want for anything leopard. It began with a pair of leoapard print tights. Now Id like leopard point ears and a coat. Im getting a coat for christmas I think, if only I had a scanner. Theres an mazing black and white photos in Glamour Magazine of a girl looking stunning in one. Also theres a fairly fine line between tacky trashy leopard print, and quirky cool leopard print wearing.
A vintage brown faux fur coat would be a nice christmas present too, I never understood why the hell people liked fur coats. But if you have the perfect one its a different matter all together.
