That Friday feeling

Friday, lovely Friday!

It's been a while since I've done a 'stuff that makes my face happy list' and what better time to do it than on a Friday lunchtime, as the clock ticks ever closer to being released from employment prison!

  • My training for the charity is going amazingly well. I'm really really enjoying it and although I know it's going to be extremely challenging and, at times, upsetting I can't wait to move on to the next stage and actually start taking some calls. Already I can feel that the way I interact with people has changed for the better and the topics we cover are opening my eyes to things I'd never even thought about before.
  • My birthday was wonderful, in all respects. I got some amazing presents, had lots of wonderful meals out and got to spend time with virtually all of my favourite people. My waistline hasn't thanked me this week but nice cakes, pizza and burgers are what birthdays are made for! This week I'm all about the nettle tea, brown rice and lots and lots of fruit.

Where the wild things were...
  • Linus in hats. Is there anything better than drawing hats onto photos of the best cat ever? No. No, there isn't. I now want an exotic shorthair kitten more than I want a teacup pig. But only just.

  • Drench. A simple yet disgustingly addictive game that will steal your life.
  • Learn Something Every Day. Full of entertaining and surprising nuggets of information, presented in cartoon neon technicolour, which is always the best way to make people learn things.  My favourite is the following. Because I'm a bawdy little monkey.

  • Miscellaneous other things include: 'The Men Who Stare At Goats', great film; grapefruit for breakfast; these boots, I like animal-themed clothing, whatevs; Neutrogena 6 hour protection lip balm, the only thing that keeps my smackers moisturised in this cold weather; taking photographs, 365 has completely invigorated my love!; Ben & Jerry's frozen yoghurt; edamame with wasabi; Vitamin B6; brightly coloured pens and nice notebooks; The Inbetweeners, as ever; spicy chilli peanuts and.... the Miike Snow album, particularly Black & Blue. It makes me cry slightly.

PS: Don't forget that my giveaway ends at 9pm tonight if you'd like to enter!
