The moment your room becomes your mood board… Grateful! – Grateful for the cellotape. Grateful for the blank white walls. Grateful for the reminders. This is how. And this is why. / Carnaby Street – I love you more and more. You’re like my spiritual candy shop. =) / Ash – happy belated birthday celebrations! I love my new necklace! Hahaha. Very classy. Tell Josh he did well =p Hope you had a good rest of the night buddy. See you at The Force soon 😉 xxx Love x

Day 342: Brain scans, Catch-up with DJ, Jamaican economics, Sorting out my yoga insurance, Zoo Lates and Getting paid!

Grateful for my catch-up with DJ today… This photo was taken way back in 2006 when we were just finishing high school. Can’t remember what I said, but it must have been something along the lines of: “Hey Deej… guess what? One day, we gonna make it BIG!” 😉 What’s that you say? Oh. Oh yea… #futureplanning! 😉 / Been thinking a lot about Jamaica economics recently. Don’t ask me why. Just know that I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn about something other than chicken for a change! =p / Grateful for Yoga-Link and being able to sort out my insurance today =) Good to see #futureplanning Project #3 out of 4 is well under way =) / Nothing like hanging out at the Zoo (and watching a man stuff a condom up his nose!! =S) on a friday night 😉 Thanks Illy! =p x / I love pay day as much as I love chocolate. Hurray!!! Honestly, that felt like eternity! =/ =D / Today, I saw the first concrete part of my dream …

Day 294: Teaching my 5th yoga class, Power Naps, Anna’s Birthday Party and Tash’s Sticky Toffee Pudding…

Grateful for all those who came to my 5th yoga class today. / Grateful for power naps. / Grateful for being present at Anna’s birthday BBQ and celebrations today. This photo makes me smile, because it reminds me of home, and a very wonderful time in my life. / Badge, thanks for dropping us off at the tube =) / Tash, your sticky toffee pudding concoction tonight was absolutely divine. One day, your kids are gonna love you for this!! 😉 / Grateful my local Sainsbury’s had mange juice, “catheter” bags and straws in stock. Made my birthday treat so much easier to arrange =)

Day 278: Clothes swapping, Matrix & Futurebound and more birthday cards!

I love clothes swapping. Especially with my Kit-Kat. / Matrix & Futurebound = 3oh3! mixed with a bit of Chase & Status = the latest thing to get my fists pumping and heart thumping and foot stomping at work (and future runs)! = GRATEFUL! =D / Thank you Uncle Donnie, Aunty Noreen, Hanna, Uncle Alan, Aunty Pauline and Joy for my birthday cards =) Hopefully see you all soon xxx

Day 277: Birthday pressies from work, My new freeview box, Lama Gyurme and The Offering Chant…

Thank you everyone at work for my birthday pressies! / Thank you, Graham, for the extra free, freeview box! TV at last, hurray! / The Offering Chant, by Lama Gyurme, is without doubt one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Forget about trying to understand the lyrics and translation… Be open, be receptive, and the meaning will present itself to you as a very intimate, and very personal experience in the deepest recesses of your heart and soul. Decipher it by feeling, not by thinking. x

Day 245: David Andrew, Kat’s Birthday Party and getting my Carhartt jacket back!

Thank you, David Andrew, for showing me what could potentially be my new home. / Thanks, Phil, for the better than average house viewings and the entertaining chats between properties. It makes such a difference having an estate agent you actually can have a proper conversation with! / Today, I finally got my Carhartt jacket back. Ohhh how I have missed you sooo!! Thank you. / Thanks, Sue, for holding on to that stuff for me! / Kat, Happy Birthday. This is how you will be remembered on this day: Happy, Gift-Ted and a budding photographer! =) Love love x

Day 126: Granddad's 80th's, deep fried mars bars and my big crazy Scottish family…

Today, after about 5 years of searching, I finally finally had a deep fried mars bar. So here are photos to prove that they are not a myth and that deep fried mars bars actually do exist. And I really really wish I did not like them!! / Glad Dad and I made it up to Scotland for my Granddad’s 80th birthday and my Aunty Mags’ 50th. Always a riot when we go up the road =p / Thanks Aunty Pauline and Alan for putting me up. / Thanks Joy for being so patient with my indecisiveness shopping around town! Cannot wait for the snow 😉 See you in a couple months… =) x
