"You could come round mine. We could drink some wine..."

The monstrosity is finished.

Thank God. I'm still pretty ill and don't think I could bear any more mornings spent in the freezing cold church. I think I would actually have a breakdown. So that's a week of my life that I'll never get back but, secretly, I've actually quite enjoyed it. Don't tell my Mum that though.

Seeing as tomorrow is Thanksgiving in America I thought I would do a little 'things I am thankful for' list. Here goes...
  • The fact I'm seeing Lykke Li in Manchester tomorrow night. Cannot wait. I haven't been so excited about a gig for ages.
  • I'm also an incredibly lucky girl as I'm then going to see Roisin Murphy on Friday night. I heart her. Majorly. Then am off out for drinks and dancing with my lovely friend Tash.
  • I start my new job on Monday. Ooh, it's nice seeing those words written down. Employment = money = happy Helen.
  • I'm seeing the Mighty Boosh live on Monday. Cannot wait. Am still holding out hope that the person who was originally supposed to come with me will come round and do so. It could be so much fun.
  • It is Christmas in 29 days! (Yes I'm one of those irritating people that loves all things festive. I can't get enough. Get over it)
  • FailBlog. All your FAIL needs, daily.
And, in slightly less material terms, I'm thankful for the experiences I was lucky enough to have this year. I had some of the happiest times of my life, particularly during the Summer. I laughed till I ached more times than I can count. I danced till I dropped. Went on the best holiday of my life, to one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Went to four festivals and saw more live music than I thought humanly possible. I felt complete for the first time in my life and I cherish the memories so much. An entire Summer spent with my best friend in the whole world.... it doesn't get much better than that.

That was the happiest I've ever been.

Thankyou for that.
