I just sent a photo from my phone to green ink - cool! [I am a bit clueless when it comes to technology, so this is a breakthrough!]
Just some random randomness for you all today - as you can see from the photo, this is what's on my desk at work. I might also add it's the tidiest part of my desk.
My calendar is various cast shots of the musical Chicago. Jerry Springer is currently playing Billy Flynn in London, and I saw him yesterday. He was standing by the stage door of the theatre. I was walking to the foodies market in Covent Garden, to get some much needed homemade chutney off North London Kitchen!
I like having Vaseline with me at all times. I was put on the drug Roaccutane four years ago, and it gave me unbearably dry lips for the year I was on it. I got so used to carrying it around with me I've never dropped the habit. I usually get the aloe vera (in the green tin!) but Rosy Lips is fast becoming my summer staple, with its sweet and sticky gloss-like effect. The little bottle of L'Occitane moisturiser smells divine (lavender, tea tree and geranium) and is especially nice to put on my hands if they feel dry, or on my shoulders after a lunch break in the sun!
The little London bus was actually a gift for my godson, but somehow I ended up keeping it. Maybe I'll get him a black cab instead. The bus is an 88, one I take quite regularly!
The Eiffel Tower is part of a dismantled keyring I bought in Paris last October. The Russian doll was brought back by a work friend on her trip to Moscow.
The rest of my desk is a mess. I have a chronic cough module I'm editing to the left, and a pile of empty water bottles to my right, with about three months worth of unfiled paperwork in between!
I also have an empty strawberry box - I had strawberries for breakfast this morning, and I love the box so much I don't want to throw it away. The box is from Belgium and it has "seize the day" in four languages on it!
This week I've been loving:
♥ The amazing weather! I am tanned to the max, just from running to and from work each day, and from sitting outside in my lunch break
♥ All you could eat Ben and Jerry's ice cream at my work summer party on Wednesday night!
♥ Concert for George. I've been loving this for weeks, but this morning I've had "My Sweet Lord" going in my head and its made me think of it again. This was truly the most beautiful thing I've seen for years, and I cried bucketloads. A lot of what I saw inspired my manifesto.
♥ Thinking happy thoughts, and reading uplifting things
♥ Pimms and G&T's
♥ Loads of lovely library books
♥ Writing with my fountain pen
♥ Searching for LPs in Camden market
♥ Rum and raisin ice cream from Marine Ices, Chalk Farm
♥ Darrell Lea liquorice and cherry ripes, bought for an exhorbitant price at the Toast Festival, but a much needed taste of home
♥ Homemade muesli, with the addition of goji berries this time
♥ Cleaning out my pantry
♥ My own homegrown strawberries
♥ Sexy strapless dresses
♥ A near daily yoga practice
♥ Frozen yoghurt with raspberries and mango
♥ Reworking my short story I wrote last week, and a poem I wrote last Christmas
♥ My hair drying in ringlets in the sun
♥ Sleeping with sheets and fans on for the first time in nearly two years!
♥ Brunch at Giraffe
♥ The promise of the weekend and all the fun I shall have in it!
What are you all loving today?
In the words of my strawberry box - Pluk de dag! Cueille le jour! Plfücke den Tag!
Seize the day.
Happy weekend everyone.
