heres to funny times

 { I love laughing!}
I have just finished my contract at work and although i've been moaning about waking up at 4 am every day, i think i might actually miss this job. But.... now i have time to play with friends and i can enjoy sleeping for 8 hours a night for the first time in two months!
 i like sleeping! 

Charity Work

 So last weekend my friend Natalia and I went to a friends tea party to raise money for the charity where Nat works called Link Community Development. Annie who held the Tea Party is running a 10 k marathon for the charity next month - well done lovely! 

     "Education is a basic human right. At this very minute, this right is being violated for over 24 million children in Africa.

Working in Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, South Africa and Uganda, 

Link Community Development is improving education for children, giving them a chance to escape the poverty into which they have been born." 

It's a brilliant charity and in September Natalia and I will be heading over to there office in Uganda, 

to help in the schools.  

I will also be filming a short documentary following the charity and filming a few other things to put on their website - i can’t wait to go!

check out their website here, they have lots of fun ways of fundraising......

some of my favourite things

i am currently obsessed with 30 rock, owls and my Sophie Dahl cookbook. maybe i asked for the book beacuse i'm curious to know how she lost all the weight, i'm sure that's why most people bought pots of tea made with love (image fffound)
blue skies and fluffy clouds

maybe this one and his badger bits {grey hairs in his scruff}

we like weekends

   {i love this gorgeous photo of a little one and his nan}

Spending quality time with each other and friends is the best way to spend a sunny weekend. 
we swam, had lazy day time naps in the park and watched 30 rock.

a little about moi

I've been working long hours this week and will be for the rest of the month. I've been cranky because of this and I'm so tired i can't think properly.
I feel like I'm working so hard and putting in so much effort and not getting any satisfaction out of it.

I'm really not sure what i want to do, and that's okay with me. i like not having plans. i find that life never goes the way i expected it to, and as a result it's made me a lot happier.

at the age of 18 i travelled around the world on my own. i met so many wonderful people, that shaped me into the person i am now.

I went to university to study publishing at 19 - i only lasted 3 months. i hated it and i knew it wasn't for me instantly. it took 3 months to get the courage to admit i wasn't happy.

My sister found me work experience in t.v at 19 and I've been working in the industry ever since. it found me, more than i went looking for it. it came at the perfect time.

I met Glen from moving in to a house share with friends from work. We were friends first and then it just happened....... we feel madly in love with each other.

I have always felt that there was something missing in my life which i couldn't explain. not even to myself. i found what was missing when i went to Malawi last year.

I didn't go looking for any of these things to happen, but they did and it's made me the person i am now. i am so grateful for all of these adventures that I've experienced. I am a nicer, brighter, happier person because of it.

when times are hard and i can't face getting out of bed and seeing the world, i have to remind myself what i have achieved, and still can.
