900 followers! oh my goodness!



Oh wow. Long time no post. Very, very, very long time. I've been bizarrely busy. It seems everything I've been doing as of late has just torn me away from the internet. What a shame, what a shame! But hello! How are you?

Firstly, may I point out my new header by mermaidens, mistress of the most gloriously cotton candy coloured blog I have ever had the pleasure of laying my eyes on. I'm so very happy with it. It's much fun being turned into a drawing, so I do suggest you go to her for a header of your own.

Secondly, somehow during the past two months of posting absolutely nothing, I have managed to reach 900 followers! Good heavens! I'm at 900 exactly so NOBODY UNFOLLOW ME haha.

To those who have recently bumped me up to this milestone, thankyou! To those who have followed me from the beginning, thankyou even more. I am so grateful. Awful at sounding it, but I truly am. Thankyou thankyou thankyou.

As is customary for blogs haha, I shall put together a giveaway to be ready by my next post (I promise it won't be 2 months this time). So stay tuned!

A small update, as it's quarter to midnight (I told myself I couldn't go on the computer until I'd finished my reading haha). Since my last post, the most major thing to happen to me is visiting Australia! I visited my parents, old friends, old places. Bizarrely enough, it's all pretty much exactly the same as I remember it. Here are some random photos I took, as usual.

So much tasty fresh food! The one big thing I miss about living in Australia is the fruit.

...an aesthetically appealing bubble tea chain haha.

The amazing Gould's bookstore in Newtown!

I totally forgot I hadn't seen these little guys in so long.

The old study spot - the State Library!

Daytime cocktails in Glebe.

Ginger and raspberry tea from Corelli's complete with a TINY TEDDY. They should sell this everywhere.

It was sunny and blue EVERY SINGLE DAY.


Anyway, so despite the fact I had a great time in Sydney, I felt homesick for the UK from literally the second day haha. It's weird that Sydney doesn't feel like my home anymore at all! I loved how warm and sunny it was, but I pretty much immediately started craving English autumn.

Here are some pictures from when I got back to the UK.

Weird picture of Charlie and I at Seaton Delavel Hall! haha

A sweet pig from this farm we found in the middle of Newcastle! haha

And finally, me getting into the autumnal spirit.

So yes! It's definitely past my bedtime now (back at uni now) so I must be off! But I shall post again in the near future. I miss my blog! 

Bye for now!
