Day 74 – Gnold


Ok, so I come home and think to myself when I get to the kitchen table “ouuhhh shiiinnyyy! Is it a real gold coin?? What is it??” Β And when I finally get close enough to inspect it – I burst out laughing. I mean.. what the heck? WHAT is this coin?! How did it get to our house and onto our dinner table?! Lol!! For those of short sight it says “Gnomeland Devonia Gnold”. I do remember saying I wanted to win the lottery today at work, but I think the universe somehow misheard me. Lol. Seriously I still cant stop laughing every time I look at that coin. WHERE did it come from?! Gnold from Gnomeland?? Really? I somehow have a feeling my sister has been to our house and is filming me as we speak watching me inspecting this coin. LOL! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Day 69 – Pets at Home

Pets At Home Camden

Another day, sunny, fun, and relaxed! Spent the day with our baby Boston Terrier puppy, Oscar. Got him weighed again (this time with his bag) at Pets at Home in Camden, and in total it was still under 5 kg so I’m sure we should get good to go for our summer trip to Finland. I must say we really got so lucky in the location we chose to live in! Parks everywhere, pet stores, vets, etc. Love it! The big boy is growing so fast he’s already outgrown his first harness! So got him a new one and a new cute collar. Pics to follow soon πŸ˜› Then spent the day lounging under the sun in our park. Such a great Sunday! Do we haaaave to go back to work tomorrow? Do we? I’d love to work for Pets at Home (for their marketing department that is), because then at least I’m sure I could take our Oscar to work with me πŸ˜€ Pets at Home.. ya hiring? πŸ˜€Β 

Day 68 – Hog Roast

Hog Roast

Ok I may be slightly addicted to these… But damn they are so good! Hog roast from the Archway Saturday Market. I think even the market guys are starting to know me by now :/ Yum yum yum! Plus its literally just down the road from us so its hard NOT to get one ;P I Think I’ll try the coffee guy next week as well! Now for more fluids as I am beyond hungover today *bleh*

Day 66 – Men Holding Hands

Two Men Holding Hands

I’ve recently started to notice this in random places (not in Soho!) and more close to home. Saw it happen last week and thought “aww, how sweet!” and again today! I’m not a very hand holdy type of person… but I do have to admit that I’m glad I’m seeing more of this happen. Especially in areas I wouldn’t even expect it to! I love how two men holding hands is now more accepted and not really even stared at! I hope one day soon it’ll be as normal as children running around or birds flying above πŸ™‚ Keep it up guys! πŸ˜‰

Day 45 – Audrey Hepburn ‘Nothing is impossible’

Audrey Hepburn Graffiti

Had such a wonderful sunny day today with the hubs and our little Oscar. While walking to Waterlow Park I stumbled upon this Audrey Hepburn Graffiti and, I don’t know, it just made me smile! Even as wall art/graffiti she still comes off so poised and inspirational! “Nothing is Impossible” indeed πŸ™‚Β 

Day 44 – 99p Store

99p Store

Ok I know this might be sad… but I’m genuinely so happy we finally have a 99p store around the corner! It’s right between a Co-op and a Sainsburys and I’m sorry, but why the hell would I spend Β£3 for Listerine, or Β£3.50 for 1.5l of Tropicana orange juice, or Β£2.60 for a tiny Soya Sauce bottle, when I can get all of the exact same branded products in 99p.. for 99p?!? Not to mention I don’t even have to walk to ‘go out of my way’ to save because it’s literally on my way home?? I say YAY for 99p! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
