Perks of the Job

Guess where I'm going next week?

I'll give you a clue... it rhymes with morida. 

Yes! That's right! I'm going to Florida!

Tis a poor show that I have not blogged about this before now... but is also not massively surprising considering everything else I have not blogged about. I'll be going away for three weeks with the family I work for, for their once in a life time trip! 

Getting everything ready for this trip, plus the usual work load has proved... tiring. But it'll so be worth it!

I can still vividly remember my mum and dad taking my brother and I there when I was about 10. Having kept it a surprise for weeks and weeks, (under the ruse of going to Portugal) my mum let the cat out of the bag one evening, we got excited that no one could sleep properly that night, mum included!

I wonder if I'll love it as much now I am proper grown up?

If I could move I would like to go for a stroll, perhaps a meander through the park and up to Packwood to sit in the church yard with my book. If I could get off the sofa I might like to have a shower and take last nights make up off. As it is I am stuck here, trying not to vomit. Oh well, at least I didn't puke on my own shoes last night, unlike a certain Miss Phillips. Yes mum! I am home! Proud much? Boyfriend has gone snowboarding for a lads only holiday- I am bothered? No, because I went out last night for a pub crawl / dance in Eddies and drank far too much red bull and a bit too much vodka.

I anticipate that Rebecca will not be getting out of her pajamas in the foreseeable future.

A weekend away!

I've just got home from work and am about to jump in the shower, then throw some clothes together for my weekend away! My cousin is getting married to his very lovely fiancée at the end of the month and I'm very excited to be going on her hen weekend in Bath. Comedy club, spa and I'm sure... A bit of cake! Of course I'm not ready at all, but I have an hour before driving to Bristol to meet them. Happy weekend to you all!

Cross Stitchery

I made this last week. I wanted something quick and easy to make, this fit the bill perfectly! Not sure where it shall live though...

I just found this t-shirt under a pile of junk in my room (I am nearly 30 and hope to be tidy one day). Further evidence towards the merits of zombies?
I couldn't possibly comment on the truth of the statement... Nevertheless 'tis a grand garment.

Rebecca Loves Zombies

In my last post I proclaimed my love for books. I also love a few other things... including zombies.

Boyfriend particularly enjoys a good zombie film, it's always good to have a shared interest or two with your other half isn't it? The Walking Dead anyone? Yes please, I think it was 'dead good,' and am looking forward to series 2.

I particularly love the music made by a Mr Robert Zombie. Touring the UK for the first time in 12 years, he rocked up in Brum in February. Well worth the astronomical price of the ticket and has carved that special place in my heart reserved for zombies just a little deeper.

World book night!

Lisa Marie at This Girl Is... posted about World Book Night today, which I had completely forgotten about! I love books, the look, the feel of them, the way you can be totally transfixed by a different world that was created in the mind of another.

Tonight being the night it is, I thought I'd share this picture (yes, it's blurry quel surprise?). This photo was quickly taken on my way back to Warwick one drizzly day last year, it's an old shop with a cool name outside of Leamington Spa. I wish it was still open!

Happy World Book Night!
