Bean Bags!

I am all about having the most comfortable reading nook. Below is a link to some really gorgeous reading nooks. Please feel free to talk about your own!

30 most beautiful reading nooks (Ebook Friendly)

My question though is, what do you think about bean bags? There’s one I found recently and I’ve never had a bean bag before so I don’t what the “etiquette” is. I would love to hear some recommendations or any funny stories you’ve had with bean bags!

Weather or not?

18. The Weather

I am just going to start this post off by saying that I get that I wrote the “Weather” that was part of the point =P

It’s kind of hard to write about the weather and talk about what I’m grateful for because it is always changing, and at the moment there are so many fights going on about climate change…and how some people are fighting it, when it’s just a fact of life.

I guess the thing that I am most grateful for is that with each season comes a different kind of celebration. Also with weather comes different feelings, like how when you first start to see Spring again, that first whole day of sunshine and it isn’t too hurt. It just makes you happy. Even though Winter can make you feel completely miserable, is there anything better than being able to snuggle and curl up on a horrible day, with a hot drink?

The weather can be such an inspiration and help you to create new things. There are only certain things you can make at certain time of the years. Well technically you can make things at any time you want, but some things are just more suitable.

You can:

  • Cry in it
  • Run in it
  • Be inspired in it
  • Blame it for why you can’t go out
  • Be warmed up by it

This Birthday weekend starts now…

My actual birthday is tomorrow (Saturday), but I have things happening from now. So you probably wont hear from me at all for a couple of days, apart from one post that’s already been scheduled. I tried to get something that would get everyone together, but other people sharing the same week as me had different plans. So now I’ve got to see three different groups of people at different times.

Although I am excited to see people I care about, do you find that Birthdays tend to very rarely go the way you want them too? People ask you what you want too do, but they don’t really mean it? Even presents start becoming a disappointed, I had all these people ask me for my wishlists and now they’re all telling me that they’re just going to give me money? Like, what’s the point?lol…I couldn’t buy the things I wanted because I thought one of them were getting it, and now they’re all sold out. I have to celebrate my Birthday, not on my Birthday, but on someone’s non-birthday too and my partner wants to go straight to one celebration, without seeing my Dog and I want to see my Dog.

My Mum even said that we could have a combined Mothers Day and my Birthday thing and I said “HELL NO!” We’ve done that for the last couple of years and I end up doing the dishes all by myself, even though my cousins kids are perfectly old enough to help, while they complain about how bored they are. Including last year when I had hurt my leg and hobbling around in pain…Happy Birthday to me!lol

Yes! Just Yes!

I don’t think that I even need to write a whole post about this one!

19 F@#king Infurating things about Women’s clothing! (Buzzfeed Article)

I have actually been trying to get another jumper/sweater that I can just wear around the house (I only really have the one) and I can say that I can completely relate to Number 8,9 and 17 at the moment!

I got it =D

Not only did I get a great accidental photo of this smiling fruit …

but I got it…I got my first step into my dream job =D

I have been fighting to get a position in the Library field, for such a long time now, and in a small town it is an incredibly hard feat. Once you tend to get into a Library here, you tend to be in it for life. Even with all my education and volunteer work, I wasn’t even getting close. I always got overlooked for other people who were already in the industry, but wanted to work at the location I wanted too. I came pretty close earlier in the year, but nope.

It was literally a catch 22, I was always told, you would fit in great here and we wanted to give you the first step in the door, but we’re going to give the job to someone whose already working.
