a friend called mirri...

.... and we're off to bournemouth today!! yayyyy!
the sun is shining... the sky is bluuue... and we're off to the beach!
this means i can't post for a few days but just to amuse you all, i went a bit mad on ebay yesterday...

H scrabble ring - £2.99
floral top - £0.99
owl cushion £12.80

now, i'm going to have a little rant about one of my fave stores, urban outfitters. okay, so on UB this beautiful owl cushion is retailing at £24.00... and that's without postage and packaging (which let me tell you is a complete rip off at about £7.00). now, on ebay (woo!) this SAME owl cushion, PLUS lots and lots more colours and patterns, is just over half price and with FREE postage and packaging!!!
moral of the story; always check on ebay before committing to paying high street prices.

started an anti-slug campain

okay, so it's now been raining non-stop for the past 3 days, and to be quite frank; i'm bored of it. i'm bored of being wet, i'm bored of waiting 27 minutes for my bus in the rain after work, i'm even bored of my amazing supersized frilly umbrella (that was hard to say). but, most of all... i'm bored of slugs.
slugs... seriously.... why are you here? what is your purpose in life? to eat my dad's vegetable patch and to climb up my windows?? why. as i walked home (yet again, in the rain) from the bus stop earlier this evening, i quite literally had to weave my way through the hundreds of slugs that littered the pavement. but, the real question that plaques my mind; where do these guys hide when it's dry and sunny?
i've seen so many baby slugs but a baby can't grow into big slug in a day? do they have sex obsessed rain orgies, when it chucks it down? why oh why oh why. so many questions about these vile, slithery, slimey critters.
and now, i semi feel bad for them. why is it everyone always feels so upset when they step on a snail, but not a slug? i know i for one do. i get the feeling i've quite literally broken their home. i always picture snails as having little tvs and sofas inside their shells. i know they don't but it gives a somewhat homely feel to living outside in the cold and wet.
i stepped on a slug the other day, it literally exploaded.
i was bare foot.
and i gagged.

that kind of sums up my tale really.

i want these frames soo bad!!!
i have a slight obsession over alice and wonderland and 'shabby chic" grandma type quirks and well, these kinda fit the bill, ever so slightly. i can see them above my laura ashley bed right now... i want to fill them with pictures from my manual minolta slr. i love the effect film cameras have. and i love the surprise element of not being able to see what the picture looks like (despite still looking at the back of the camera from habit). i just love film. digital can go die. film for the win!! & i can't wait for beautiful new camera to arrive!

£25.00 for three.
Urban Outfitters.

ode to topshop sale

i seriously, seriously need to stop spending. but i literally can't. i've lost so much weight that none of my old clothes fit me anymore... therefore, new clothes! (this is my excuse anyway). the chinos are a size six. someone needs to feed me. and quick. then i might be able to fit into my clothes again.
but being skinny is fun.
and new clothes are definitely fun.

listened to this song non-stop all week

weird dreams

i have always suffered from strange, vivid dreams; ever since i was a child. i used to dream of dragons, witches, super-powers, space, being chased, teeth, indiana jones, trains, swords, vampires... everything under the sun.
i am heavily into dream interpretation and believe that every dream reflects your waking mind. every time i have a dream, i flick through my dream interpretation book and see what it reveals about my subconscious. normally it tells me i shouldn't take things to heart... but that's nothing too different from things i already know.
my reoccurring dream consists of my alley way next to my old house and my set of back doors (there are two). i am being chased down the alley (its not like normal dreams where you can't run fast enough - i run fine) it's just, i can't close the back doors in time. whatever it is manages to stop me locking the door. so then i run to the kitchen door and attempt to shut that, but again, it's too late. this is the most frustrating and frightening dreams i have. i have woken up in a cold sweat from these dreams before. they are chilling.
strangely, until now i never thought to look up one particular dream which had me puzzled. i am not one for sleep walking and i very rarely sleep talk. but this one night, i was lying asleep next to my ex-boyfriend when i suddenly start shaking him awake demanding why he was going to kill himself. i was literally shaking him awake. he woke up very, very confused and then i think i must have woken up because i had no recollection of why i'd asked him that. so, like i said... i have just decided to look it up:

To see someone commit suicide in you dream, highlights your concerns for that person. Consider what characteristics and qualities in that person you may be trying to "kill" and annihilate in your own self. Perhaps you hope that you are not like this person and are making attempts to get rid of those traits within your own self.

it seems that my subconscious was a whole step ahead of me and had him figured out before i did. and that's the reason he is my ex.
i really do find the subconscious fascinating, like, how is it your dreams have hidden meanings? i am really regretting not taking psychology for a-level now, it would have been so up my street. i always think about things too much, i think outside the box. i love knowing theres so much more to life than everyday things.
life is short, so live it as best as you can; filled with as much fun as possible.
