A Little Bit Older, A Little Less Wise...

Today is a day for things that make me happy. These are some...

Baby animals, fuzzy lo-fi guitars, Father Ted, reading the last few pages of a really good book as slowly as possible because I don't want it to end, orang-utans, playing with the band, buckets of old vinyl at car-boot sales, milkshakes, tiger-stripes, licking the bowl, gold lurex, dark red nails, a pint of Blue Moon in a comfy pub, impulse buys that end up being treasured for years, Trans Ams....
...spiderwebs in the frost, truly brilliant pop songs, food fights, never sitting on a chair properly, lazy Sundays, grumpy cats, listening to other people's conversations on the train, 1980s Tokais, the smell of melting chocolate, spontaneously brilliant nights out, statement hats, unconditional love, ghost stories, good manners and the satisfaction of doing something really, really well.


  1. Happy birthday, by the way! (I'm hoping I guessed right from your post yesterday that it was today...) I hope today was a lot better than you were expecting it to be.

    P.S. I'm glad I'm not the only one who enjoys listening to other people's conversations on the train...Some of the things you hear are pretty randomly amusing, I end up silently giggling to myself thinking "This person truly believes that by shouting loudly to someone on a phone, in a public place, that they're having a private conversation".

  2. Is today your birthday?? Happy Birthday dear Penny! It's been an eventful year and I am sure this next one will be wonderful. And yes all the way to never sitting properly on a chair!
