a stormy saturday.

29 August 2012

on saturday it stormed. hard. the heavens opened and summer was snatched away from right under our noses. lost forever to a grey and drizzly sky. that saturday i have never been more happy that i was a loner. 'loner' obviously being the term for me being the only girl in sw london at home by herself, not at the sw4 festival with all my friends.
as i sat there on my comfy DRY sofa, in my snuggly DRY flat, with goblin for cuddles, my toasty teapot providing yummy tea and a gooey terry's chocolate orange to nibble on, i thought if that is what being a 'loner' is these days then i am happy to be a loner forever. i was over the moon that i never got a ticket for sw4 in the end. while my friends were knee deep in mud, getting more and more drunk soaked as the storm raged on, i was snuggly, DRY and warm at home with my favourite things.
so what did this 'loner' do then with all this free time stretched out in front of her?? the possibilities were endless after all; she could write, she could read, she could eat, she could ring some friends that she hadn't spoken to in a while - oh wait, nope, they were mostly at sw4. woops - she could edit some pictures, she could play with goblin, she could do house chores - err no, that is a crap suggestion, scrap that - she could bake delicious cakes, she could then stuff her face with said delicious cakes???
the possibilities? endless.
so in the end she decided to watch Abduction.
you know that film with Taylor-whats-his-name-the-one-in-twilight in it?? yeah that one...
i cannot believe that i decided {a woman of mostly sound mind} chose to do THAT, out of all the possibilities i was 'given'...i chose to watch a  REALLY SHIT film!!!!!!
after about two minutes in to said film, i knew that it was only going to get worse and that the only good thing about the film would be the fact that it had to end at some point. there was a niggly voice in my head screaming at me 'TURN IT OFF! TURN IT OFF', but there was something stopping me. goblin was snuggled up on top of the controller. and he was snuggled up REAAALLL GOOD.
i didn't have the heart to move him so i just sat there in disbelief, thinking how on earth could a film be THAT bad. i munched through a little most of bens gooey chocolate orange and drank my body weight in tea to try and distract myself from the tv screen. at one point i muted it {by getting up and walking to the tv and pressing an actual button - thank you goblin, again & who knew actual buttons on the tv still existed???} and tried my hand at lip reading.
lesson learnt.
i am just as shit at that as i am at choosing films to watch.
as the film ended i was angry at myself for sticking it out. but what other option did i have? i stood at the window and watched the storm carry on. at this point i notice goblin has awoken from his slumber and is milling around my feet looking for cuddles. over my shoulder he goes and i am left thinking about how i can go back in time and prevent goblin from sitting on the controller.
after my unsuccessful afternoon i decided that i would get up, have a shower {hair wash was much needed - ew, sorry for the over share} and go meet ben at london bridge for a cheeky drink.
i was and still am surprised my jeans fitted me after i comfort ate my way through that film. what i didn't mention earlier was the box of maltesers and packet of biscuits i ate alongside the chocolate orange. 
little miss piggy over here.
bizarrely i actually felt quite confident with how i looked as i left the flat; nice skinny jeans, standard tank, new necklace, fitted blazer and freshly washed hair.
that was until i noticed that whilst walking to the tube my top had dropped down a good two inches and i was happily revealing my nice lacy bra to the whole of balham. i did think i was receiving an awful lot of smiles.

never a good look, unless you are a slut.
oh that reminds me..LOL at this picture.
that comes courtesy of my sis-wa's tumblr. you can find her here if you like.
she sure is funny.
rolling past the awkward moment at the tube, we had a nice evening in the end.
sunday morning ben's mum, caroline, picked us up and we all drove down to colchester. we arrived in the afternoon and spent some quality time chilling out and catching up with mum {with a little working thrown in}.
 monday morning we popped out for breakfast at the local cafe/shop/treasure chest.
aren't they cute photos?
yeah, right up until the point that tash grabbed my boob. i mean honestly, i would NEVER do that. it is SO inappropriate!
look at my face. am i enjoying this?
not so much here. thinking back, this was just after she squeezed my boob quite hard.
once again, super appropriate..
what my boobs are not big enough for you tash??? got to go grab mum's now???
pfft. i love how mums face stays the same throughout, completely unawares...
on our way home we did a spot of shopping at bluewater and i got to buy myself a few treats with my birthday money. zara jeans, urban outfitters scarf, notepad, river island skirt and a few superdrug treats. a good shopping trip for little old me. and a good old weekend too!
oh and tash?? isn't this picture a treat?
yes, i did tell you i wouldn't put it on here. yes, i lied. i had my fingers crossed. soz.


  1. Hahaha I dragged my boyfriend along to see that film with me... he was less than impressed with me. I think he played on his phone the whole time! I wasn't to know it would be that bad. I just chose blindly based on the cool thriller title!
    Love your outfit, I'm so addicted to blazers right now!


  2. Really you should blame goblin! Also, you tried your hand at lip reading?! LOLed all over the place here at work :)


Go on... stalk me a little..
