Rising sun 


So this weekend along with a tonne of shopping I also managed to knock another one off my list. 

I went and watched the sun rise.

Now admittedly the field I sat in was not as cool a place as some of the others I’ve planned (beaches and forests while camping) and failed because I like sleep too much.

And unlike the other plans I didn’t have any company. But I think watching it on my own made it all the more magical, it was just me surrounded by nature. 

I live in the middle of a built up town so not ideal sun rise watching location. Luckily there’s a lot of gorg countryside just a short drive away, and so I got up stupidly early and drove out to a field near my dad’s little village.

 I did get seriously worried while driving that Saturday was not going to be the day I got to see the sun come up because it was overcast and cloudy. But luckily for me as the sun rose the clouds broke up, and those that were still there looked so pretty and colourful. 

And I totally get why people say you should watch a sunrise, it really connects you to the world around you. Just sitting there in the dim light with my warmish cup of tea (like all addicts I take it any way I can get it) and doing my deep yoga breathing I could clear my head and really think through some things that have been bugging me these last few weeks. I think being alone made it that much more spiritual and made me really think in a way that joking around with someone else wouldn’t have. 

Anyways that’s enough of the spiritual stuff, I’m really not good at putting my life into words, much better at making up stories than telling my own! Enjoy some of the fab pictures I took! 💖

I would have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for those pesky kids 


So another one bites the dust! 

I have been to, hosted actually, a murder mystery.

It was muddled and chaotic and there wasn’t enough people to fill all the characters (which by the way when the extra guests are not necessary you should not be expected to question them!) but it was still a blast!

We did a Death in Paradise themed murder mystery, hence my lovely tropical vibe in the above pic 🏝🏝

Obvs I roped the usual suspects into it; V, J and S all came dressed to impress as well as  our friend B who was a total babe filling in one of our key characters. As you can see some followed my lead with the tropical theme and others went with their character briefing  (leis were distributed to all).

We also had a low maybe so that space had to be filled by player number three:

Voiced by lady V when the cushion needed to talk. 

Anyways we had dodgy French and Irish accents from yours truly, V playing four characters at one point and a lot of confusing questions that ended in Humps declaring me the murderer!! Obvs I was already in the know before he did the big reveal but we all got to guess and my fellow murder mystery show binger V guessed correctly and even got the motive and scenario! 

Until the next item! 💖
