Monday summary

26.7.10

Evening all! I hope your Monday was happy and healthy? There's nothing like blogging again to make me feel like my old self! I have missed my little space on the Internet.. hope you missed me!

What are you happy about this week? Here are my 5 good things:

1) My family. They are so supportive and generous and always at the end of the phone when I need them. My Mum has been doing a great job of feeding me when I forget to eat! And doing my washing. I love you Mum!

2) Music. I have been finding peace and comfort in music a lot lately. I love old music - I often think I was born in the wrong era. This song makes me so happy:


3) Plans to see Inception this week or next. It looks amazing! Have you seen it? There's something about the amazing special effects combined with the fact my 2 favourite actors, Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon Levitt, are in it that makes me super excited to see it!

4) Being thrifty. It's the new splashing out dontcha know! :) Things are going to be tough for the next couple of months and I plan to spend wisely! Charity shops and car boot sales will be my new best friends. Oh also, remember I took part in the Next bloggers contest and wrote this little article? Guess what.. I won! I got a Next voucher for £100! I will be like a woman with 2 right hands in Next Home!!

5) The idea of decorating my own place the way I want it. It will be my little space that I can fill with whatever I choose, and there's something very exciting about that prospect!

  1. I have been eagerly waiting to see you post again. You inspired me to start blogging (I hope to get better in time!) I love reading your blog and I've read it all the way back (promise I'm not a stalker). You just seem so down to earth and lovely. I wish you all the best and you will come out of this better than ever!! x

  2. I always get the feeling that i was born in the wrong era. I should have been in the 60s going crazy over The Beatles or in the 80s screaming about Bon Jovi!

    It must be a great feeling being able to decide how you want to decorate your home, i hope you have fun in the process! xxx

  16. Hi Victoria,

    I've been out of the blogging circle for a little while and am only now catching up with missed posts.

    I'm so sorry to hear about you and your boyfriend. I hope that you get back on your feet soon. As for living alone, it's the best thing that ever happened to me. When I broke up with my fiance I had to start from complete scratch and I think it really helped me develop as a person, re-discover my true self and help with my self confidence.

    You totally have to see Inception. It's one of the best films I've seen this year and you have the added bonus that Leo DiCaprio/JGL/Tom Hardy are totally perv-worthy :)

    Keep your chin up
