Tired and muddled, muddled and tired. Wake up calls and confusion.
West End Festival
I must go to all of the things. Give me a shout if you fancy joining me.
First time in ages since I’ve listened to...
Great Gatsby, classic cinema and the Charleston at...
merchantcityglasgow: A Charleston Brunch, a Great Gatsby inspired fashion show and a 1960s style Tiki Bar will transport the Merchant City back in time for Vintage Glasgow. With just under three months to go until the big event, designer and curator Wayne Hemingway unveiled the full festival line-up for the two day celebration of all things vintage. Music, fashion, film, art, dance, food and...
Just got (provisionally) invited to Thailand this...
Being about to start a new job and my finances not being what they used to be, I’ll only be able to manage two and a half weeks at most (with my friend being there for about 6). But still. Thailand. Things are looking up, finally
For the first time in my life, I am genuinely questioning whether I want to have children. I always thought that I did. But now I’m not so sure. It’s very strange. I’ve always loved being around kids, loved babysitting my mum’s friend’s kids, helping my mum out with her work, cooed over baby photos and laughed at the silly stuff they did. Hell, I looked after 3 kids...
May or may not have ended up listening to Busted tonight. I blame Amy.
You want to travel with them. You want to see what they’re like going through...– How You Know - Talia Ralph (via barbieandken) This is one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever read. (via herflickeringlight)
So very proud
to be a part of the organisation I’m volunteering for. Got some real hands on experience today and was kept very busy. I feel like an adult. I may be exhausted and look like shit, but fighting for other people’s rights is more than worth it.
Now case working for The Unity Centre
a voluntary organisation for asylum seekers at risk of detention. Such worthwhile work. I know that it will be grim, unbearable and at times almost hopeless, but it needs to be done. Helping people who really need it is what I want to do. Also got a cheeky once a week babysitting job lined up. I just need a big girl job and I’m all set.
Back in Glasgow!
Still jobless though, but still!
Just back from my final bit of work in France; babysitting for the parents of one of the richest families I have ever come across. The youngest kid of the family I worked for is in the same class as their older child (she has a younger brother, so it was just the two of them). Their mum (or should I say, mom) is one of the most fascinating people I have ever come across. I know her from picking...
littlenewsfromfrance: Message de la Garde des Sceaux, Madame Taubira (que certains de mes amis appelle désormais Maman Christiane XD) aux jeunes homos : “Gardez la tête haute.” Take that, bigots.
As much as I endorse positive body image and good...
I can’t help but think that people who post nude or almost nude photos of themselves on social networking sites are going to get bitten by it in the ass one day.
Not wearing suncream
in 25 degree heat with bare pale legs. Very pale legs. Cooked Vicky. I had a lovely picnic though.
Back home on Monday 29th.
Resigned. The mum and I both cried. My heart is in pieces, but I know (or at least hope) I’ve done the right thing. This city is beautiful and these kids are little stars. I just deserve more than this. Even though I would be leaving in a month and a half anyway, I hope that they won’t resent me for it. Thanks for all your support tumblr. This is the toughest thing I’ve ever...
It always struck me as peculiar, too, when the Spice Girls briefly championed...– Russell Brand on Margaret Thatcher http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2013/apr/09/russell-brand-margaret-thatcher (via buildings-on-fire)
