Things I love Thursday 12/9/2013



Hello there!  Welcome to the very first Things I Love Thursday post from my new flat.  At the moment I’m writing this at my brand-new kitchen table, with sunshine streaming in through the windows.  It’s a glorious day, just perfect for writing about all the things I love.


This week, I love:

–          Having a flat all of my own.  There’s something quite liberating about living by yourself.  While it’s not all sunshine and lollipops, it’s pretty darn good.


–          Jelly’s lizard friend.  In the summer, there was a little lizard that would come and cling to my study window every evening.  Jelly absolutely loved it, and would sit in there watching it for hours.  I hadn’t seen the lizard for months.  On our final night in the old house, I went into the study to pack a few final things and there he was!  I went and grabbed Jelly and she spent the evening sitting happily on the stripped bed, chattering to the lizard and purring.


–          Sparkling wine in crystal goblets.

–          The Mighty Ducks movies

–          Being able to step outside minus my jacket without freezing to death.  Spring is definitely here!

–          Finding perfect furniture on the cheap.

–          Waking up really early without an alarm.

–          Crazy-detailed dreams.  Every night since I’ve been in my new house I’ve had really vivid dreams.  They’ve mostly been strange and nonsensical, about random things like throwing a surprise birthday party for my boss, or going skinny dipping with Johnny Depp.  It’s nice to be sleeping deeply enough to have such crazy dreams.

–          Ringo-cuddles.  It’s taken him quite a while to get settled in the new house, so it’s nice to have a little cuddle with him just to reassure him that everything’s going to be O.K.

–          Visits from my mum and her dog, Brodie.  Brodie’s a sweet little guy and he and Jelly are becoming fast friends.  Now that I live close to my parents, Mum has been walking Brodie around to see me a couple of times a week.

–          Being really thrifty and spending less on my groceries.

–          Caramel lattes

–          Borrowing books about vintage fashion from the library.
