I didn't think I liked surprises. 

Then I had a really great one today and we spent hours walking by the river until the sun went down. 

I'm also being taken to a fancy-ass christmas thing in not enough weeks for the dress situation to be avoided any longer. 

I'll be on asos for the time being hunting. 

We made it as far as the weir before having to turn back.

I am loving having a double duvet again, though I fear 6 pillows is too much.

I am a child at heart.

So this week has been self care week , or something like that. 

And whilst I'm not entirely subscribed to the whole notion, parts of it serve to act as a gentle reminder you still have to look after number one above all else. 

I've recently received requests for my spotify playlists because apparently I have above average music taste. Why, thank you. 

Music is my therapy though. 

I've been trying new things recently, one of which is waking up early.

Oh no. Wait.

Went to a lovely pub on Wednesday in Windsor - would strongly recommend for dinner...

I am desperate now to resolve my housing issue. I go through rounds of hating the situation and all involved and putting it completely to the back of my mind and forgetting it exists. Neither are good.

you have to participate

i think we are well advised to stay on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind's door at 4am of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends'
Joan Didion

You can't remake yourself completely. You can't completely disregard or discard older versions of yourself like incremental software upgrades, It doesn't work like that. Remember the clothes you once wore.

I'm so excited for this weekend, but nervous by how busy i will be. I need to book a day off and just sleep I think. 

It's starting to affect my training. 

I didn't make this. it was sent by an avid fan. because really, what does Duncan have to do with anything?

Though as was pointed out last night, that doesn't entirely matter any more.

you have your entire life to be a dickhead. take today off, go on.

remember when i asked for your opinion? no. me either.

If you're waiting for me to care we should both take a seat. it's gonna be a while

some day you'll go far, make sure you stay there.

sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut and give the impression you're stupid than open it and remove all doubt.

to be honest, you only annoy me when you're breathing. 

 you always bring joy when you leave the room

i'd tell you how i really feel about you, but i wasn't born with enough middle fingers to express myself.

earth is full. please exit via the route you came in.

I am the kind of tired that makes you brush your teeth with savlon instead of toothpaste.

Or that makes you mistake your shoes for a pair that actually match...

I've wrapped two Christmas presents so far this year. I've written numerous cards and as I write this there are tears in my eyes because my list has just gotten one name shorter. 

Funerals are hard. They make you realise how short life is, but you really aren't supposed to lose the people you love before christmas. It's just not fair. 

I wear black every day, so for this occasion I'll be sneaking in my dinosaur socks and will hide some pink in my hair. I think she'd appreciate that.

'because i was watching spice world' is an acceptable answer to everything today.

A few weekends ago, I had a house saga that outdid most of my usual adventures.

Set to be headed into London (via a lift in maidenhead) I had to run out to my car to grab some essentials.

once outside, I realised my mistake but by the time I turned back round the door was shut.

keyless, shoeless and clueless, I did what any average human would do. I sat down and played some games on my phone before accepting I would need to call my dad.


His response was calm.

'Sophie I honestly hope you've kept with tradition and have not managed to lock the house up. If not, we need a hammer. You'll need to ask next door to let you climb over.'

Next door, the neighbours who effectively regarded me with some level of disdain. Next door who sighed when they saw me, and sighed harder when I was standing in front of their house ringing their doorbell.

'Would it be okay if I climbed the fence and borrowed a hammer?'

She waved me through.

Thankfully I had not locked any of the doors and was granted quick access to my house.

Problem solved.

things i said once and will say again

'rock bottom is where heroes are made' - my nan when I dropped smarties everywhere. 

my ultramarathon prep is good. I ran last week and just ate a banana. 

i just panicked, threw a glass at the biggest spider i've ever seen and now i'm hiding downstairs. 

there's a reason i'm not very good at running. *points at jeans which have been turned up 5 times*

after seening an ad about how baby wipes were 'perfect for clumsy children' my dad has now added some to the shopping list

wanna hear something fun? not talking to me. that's fun

i'm no hero - when I run my soul leaves my body, much like everyone else's

jerry ripping the aux cable out of my speakers and throwing it out of the window is a surefire way to gauge he's not impressed

siri has bad attitude. make me a coffee is a perfectly good request. 

today would be the best day for a donation of 5 million. I accept most currencies, and smarties. 5 million smarties.

Yesterday was bloody magical. I am now the owner of the muddiest shoes in bucks and can confirm I was on the x-factor merely weeks ago. 

amusement level - on par with that time I ran into a glass door.
