New pens

10 Mar

I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy new stationary, it’s pretty sad but true. Last week, I was talking with one of the lovely girls in my class about when I decided that I wanted to be a teacher. She said how, for a while, she had thought she’d like to be a teacher too because of how much she liked new pens and paper! It was so nice to hear this, I always think I’m the only one.

Birthday fun!

21 Feb

My birthday, in 28 pictures (can you guess how old I am??)

Firstly, it was lovely to be in work for my birthday for a change, it’s usually in half term. I got some sweet cards and gifts, two impromptu outbursts of happy birthday from my class and their lovely company when I opened my presents during lunchtime.

Lovely cards, from friends and family…

After work, we visited our friend and her gorgeous girls and I was treated to more birthday singing and a homemade cake…

We spent the evening with two more of my favourite people, who brought gorgeous gifts…

The next day was spent with family, it is my sister’s birthday five days before mine so celebrations are usually combined…

On Sunday, I went to a fantastic cinema in Birmingham (the electric) with my lovely friend, to watch Brief Encounter. This brought about some (rather unnecessary) black and white instagramming!

I do adore this film, a great end to my birthday weekend!

New year, new ritual

6 Jan

There are few things I dislike more than the end of Christmas, specifically taking down the Christmas tree.
So, this year I’ve decided on a new ritual…to decorate the house with fresh flowers once the tree goes.
It’s certainly brightened up the rooms after clearing all the decorations.

I bought this glass heart decoration from Ikea. I really like the weight of this decoration, it’s proper thick glass.
