weell happy halloween to everyone =)

my halloween plans are no longer existant, unfortunately, because they were great plans. i was supposed to dress as a bat and jump out at innocent children & people who were on a ghost tour. and i was so looking forward to it. and then after that i was meant to be going to see 'quantum of solace' but my head was really sore so i didnt bother.

mais maintenant je suis bonne, et

i would be a vegetarian if i lived on my own and had to cook all my own food. i prefer baking. i love baking.

my blow torch finally arrived so il be forcing creme brulees on my friends soon :) i found this cool recipe for lavender creme brulee, which sounds like it could be lovely.

currently using my dads laptop to write this, our computer is displaced to the conservatory atm, and is internet-less, which means i cant upload my own photos (however shabbby they may be). which is a bit of pain. il take loooads so then when i get back to the old computer there will be showers and thunderstorms 0f my photos.

until then i sourced this (pretty strange) photo of me avec friends at a goodbye-dinner for a friend. thats the most rubbish thing about getting to the end of school, having to say goodbye to people.

is anyone still in contact with most of their high school friends? i need to know there's hope! people are amazing.

i wont even point myself out. safe to say, i the crazy looking one. (not the crazy looking one at the front though, hahaa poor monkle). it was a really nice night.
i am seriously excited - on saturday im going to a continental christmas fair, where there's going to be little stalls with people from france & germany & italy & spain selling christmasssy things. & crepes!! is it posisble for anyone to resist the magicalness of the crepe?? i think not.
so school today was absolutely freezing, and i yearned for hot chocolate and a warm mince pie.
the heating & electricity is being a bit dodgy there.
& when i got off my tremendous bus (im learning to drive, but i much prefer buses and trains, i think im a really shy person who cant live without people..) i looked to the clouds & saw the coolest shapes. i saw an animal with the head of a dragon & the body of a dolphin, & a duck on the back of a wolf.
why do people blog? not trying to be nosy, i think im just curious. i think i do it because im too lazy to write everything down in a diary, i think so many things my hand starts to hurt.
i write the funny way, like a hold my pencil/pen a strange way, and it rests on my ring finger, so i have the horriblest lump on my right ring finger. i call the lump ronald.
and i hate my feet.
and reverse parking. gosh its bad. ohh and roundabouts, and accelerating quickly (im secretly an old lady). i enjoy driving slowly so i can gaze at the clouds & the hills & the scenery, its lovely around where i live =)
anyway, im off to do some modern studies hw on china. very interesting, i love politics =)

i love writing lists. my diary from last year is basically a list-a-day.


today was a lovely day. people are so nice & i lovelove friends soo much. they know you so well they're super-sensitised to your emotions & can tell straightaway if you're not feeling great or anything. its amazing.

i got my 'the snowman' advent calendar =D its great. i got it in M&S and (i am 17) I was hoping that i looked old so the guy at the checkout wouldnt think i was buying it for myself, maybe for my younger brother or sister or something, but the first thing he said to me was "Ooh you're very organised, aren't you? Not wanting to miss a single day??" & so my plan was foiled & i hung my head and mumbled "yes". once again i must accept that i am a seventeen year old girl trapped in a permanently five-year-old girls body. its aawful.

the house is all cold atm because my dads away & i have to keep the fire going, but i always forget to put logs on it until i suddenly realise that im really cold & by then its gone out. argh. so i am finding immense comfort in my tea =) &&mince pies <

i would totally eat them all year round, except then they wouldnt be special anymore. like hot cross buns & christmas cake & saying i love you. have to save it so its extra special when you do.

peace&happiness to all. & il end on a list..

tea =)
i kinda realised after i'd posted that below that i should probably explain 'tout le monde'. firstly, i love french, although ive not taken it in sixth year at advanced higher (errmm i always get confused about what the english equivalents are, i think advanced highers are as levels? and sixth year is the last year... if that makes any sense). soo yeah, i love french, and i was going to study it at uni, but i changed my mind.. im now headed towards studying politics with history maybe.
and umm i live in scotland, which i really really like, even though it rains a bit, and its kinda gloomy sometimes.

but the days when it looks like this ^^ you realise the bad weather is totally worth it =)

soo i digress.... (constantly, by the way)

i love writing lists. i love tea (mm..incase it wasnt sorta obvious) & biscuits. i love people, & friends & family, & i love love. i love happiness & smiles. i love walking up hills & bathing in the silence & tall grass. i love snow & christmas (best time of year). i love cloudspotting & seeing shapes. i love running in the crazy way. i love baking. i love cinemas.

& muchos happiness to everyone =)


erm.. weell this is the first post ever. not entirely sure how to work this thing, am slowly getting to grips with it. and hopefully this blog might become respectable in the near future :)
till then, peace love & happiness.. <3
