One of "those" mornings.

4 June 2013

When a morning starts with nearly cutting your thumb clean off you know that you are going to have to take certain steps to ensure the rest of the day doesn't follow suit.
If it was up to me, I would have taken the day off, iced and wrapped up my thumb and hung out with Goblin (probably with the same expression on my face too!)...but unfortunately the world doesn't work like that and squidging myself up on the sofa feeling sorry for myself simply wasn't an option.
Instead, I added a teaspoon of cacao powder to my green smoothie (to make my thumb feel better okay!!), put on my 'good bum jeans', spent an extra five minutes doing my make-up and grabbed my old school iPod so I could listen to some good music on the tube.
Simple things, but things that meant I left home with a smile on my face and bopped all the way to work.
And the icing on the cake? Glorious and clear blue skies.
Morning redeemed.
And quickly, I would just like to introduce my latest pet giraffe (the tall one on the left for those of you who don't keep up to date with my pet giraffe's, unbelieveable as that is!)
I have yet to name him/her though so any good name suggestions would be totally welcome!!


  1. Oh no! Hope you're not in too much pain. Morning's like this suck! Goblin looks so cosy I would have wanted to join him too!! I need the 'this home' quote for my house, I love it and have also seen a rather large giraffe that I want for the porch. They are my daughters faves! I hope our day gets better :) x

  2. I hope there was some McFly/Busted/NSync on that old school iPod, that's all I'm saying x

  3. Hope your day is improving!! I think the new giraffe should be called Freckles :) xx

  4. Orlaith thinks the giraffe should be called 'mum' or 'black' so there you have it

  5. I know those days. Glad it improved. And I think Godfrey for the giraffe

  6. If only we could all live it up like Goblin, he's a cutie!

  7. Ah, the power of good bum jeans! I hope your week has improved since then!

  8. Good bum jeans fix everything :) Glad things turned around, and your new blog design looks so great. I like what you did with the place ;)


Go on... stalk me a little..
