Oranges, Lemons and Strawberries


Sometimes after trying on a few different things when trying to decide what to wear, I'll notice that my dress/skirt etc needs ironing. I'm not a fan of ironing so if I can get away with zero ironing efforts I'll gladly avoid the iron. Other times I'll notice that I only need a quick ironing and at such times I will do what I can be seen in the above picture. The perfect and quick solution: Ironing my dress whilst wearing it!


This is what I wore going out to dinner on Saturday: My new fruit dress!

After I had gotten ready and had applied my makeup I had to wait for John to get ready. What's this about women taking longer to get ready?


Here you can see my "new" necklace. It's a little vintage piece I recently bought. If you're not sure where the mention of strawberries in my headline comes from you can have a peep at my ears.

The Ever Dreaded...


My birthday is coming up soon as May is quickly approaching. I am turning the...erhm...big two-four. 

At work we seem to have been discussing age a lot lately. I would be inclined to think it has something to do with the fact that there are a lot of birthdays in the coming few summer months. 

Each year, no matter the age of the individual, it seems to be a matter of great despair: Turning another year older. Some people seem to shrug the day off without much worry (and thus they do not start early work on those worry lines, how clever...) and I belong - to some extent - to this group. 

What I seem to get caught up over is the fact that every year I get a new number to call my own, a number which seems so unfamiliar. You would think I'd be used to the idea of this new number now defining me, as I have had a whole year to prepare but every year it feels so strange, so bizarre. 

A few weeks and I'll be able to experience deja vú.

Addiction in it's Various Holiday Forms


I haven't been up to anything exciting over the Easter holiday. My few days of total freedom from anything work related have been spent mostly at home. I wish I could say I was strong enough to withstand the temptation, but I have in fact been stuffing my face with chocolate. This coming week I'll have to try and wean myself off the cravings for all things sweet. I still have a little bit of dark chocolate left, which as we all have been told is not as bad of a guilty pleasure as milk chocolate, but unfortunately I can't seem to find the scrunched up piece of aluminium foil with the remaining two pieces. Maybe it's just wishful thinking.

I've spent my days off with John and have only ventured back to my place to quickly pick up a few things here and there: My sweatpants, my camera, my ovenproof dish, potatoes and some other vegetables. We've spent parts of our afternoons and evenings watching the US version of The Office in long sittings of multiple episodes. While I never really watched the show before, I do think I'm completely addicted to it.

Holidays tend to bring out addiction in me!

Happy Easter!!


Easter is almost over and the long weekend is nearing it's end (Why? I'm pretty sure nobody wants to go back to work!). I hope you have had a nice Easter!

Pajamas and Bunny Slippers May become a New Trend


I may never leave John's new place. He has finally moved up to Dublin and not only am I no longer dependent on public transport in order to see him, but I am also no longer in need of a coat. Seeing as he now lives around the corner from me, about 15 seconds away, I could run over in my pajamas if I so wanted to.

*Happy squeal*
