Happy #3 – As I wrote a couple of posts ago I am feeling more in control of everything again and am finding the time and joy to start writing and putting up posts again. I really do enjoy doing this, and it does seem that some of you are actually enjoying reading it too, so thank you!
10 points to whoever can figure out what this is.
A massive thank you to Janine Basil who created my beautiful headband and helped me to get it on time when I ordered it too late!
This year was the 25th anniversary of Brighton Pride and the whole city seemed to be involved. The first Pride parade in Brighton was in 1973 but it wasn’t until 1991 that it became the festival it is known as now. You can find out more here: History
We followed the parade all the way through Brighton over to London Road where we met up with our friends, and danced in the street, watching the parade and cheering everyone as they passed. Everyone seemed to be having a brilliant time with huge smiles on their faces.
Once the parade had finished we went to Preston park to start the real party! It was fantastic, we drank, we danced, everyone was having a fantastic time. It seemed to be over far too quickly. I want to go back and do it all again.
Happy #3 – On Wednesday I had made plans to have dinner and wine on the beach with my friend Gemma after work. It has been a real scorcher of a day so we went to Tesco’s and bought a rotisserie chicken, salad and a baguette (and maybe some cake… perhaps….maybe…..) We made chicken sandwiches, drank wine and put the worlds to rights while watching a seagull trying to eat a fish. It was glorious.
Happy #4 – I have previously mentioned my favourite blogger/YouTuber Sprinkle of Glitter (aka Louise Pentland) before. I am a bit of a fangirl and think she is just plain fabulous. She gives young women a very positive message in an otherwise very pressured society. Something that I feel quite strongly about. If you keep up with her internet antics you will know that Thursday saw the release of her new book “Life with a Sprinkle of Glitter“. I have had it on pre-order since it was announced and was far too excited about it’s arrival. It came, its lovely. I am definitely a little (a lot) older than the intended audience but that does not mean I cannot appreciate the messages held within its pages. I could ramble on for ages, but it is lovely, and I am savouring each page like a delicious box of chocolates.
Happy #5 – On Sunday Jezz, Jo, Ed and I all went to the Odeon cinema to watch Jurassic World finally. I thoroughly enjoyed it, it’s silly, it’s loud,the characters are painfully one dimensional but sometimes you just have to let go and ride it out. It made me nervous, happy and nostalgic. And… well… dinosaurs!! WOOP!
Happy #5: On Sunday I had a really lovely day with the boy. We had a lovely lay in and then a nice cup of tea while watching an episode of House (now on the final season..boohoo!!) and then we went into town for lunch. We went to Noodles soup, one of our current favourite places to go for lunch. I had king prawn laksa with rice noodles, it was delicious! We then went to see The Avengers – Age of Ultron at the cinema. Can’t beat a bit of superhero action movie!
What songs are there lurking on your iPod that you are ashamed to admit?
