Shopping with Jonny.

Walked home.

Bought a nice coat. And some trainers. And a bra. 😬

Just my beautiful garden. And a ghost balloon. And the sun. The sun is back.

Shopping with Jonny. 

And then watching him play a pretty computer game. With stealth killing, not shootings. 


A super fast and super successful shopping trip to Covent Garden.

Coming home to my housemates being fun and lovely. Plus a fantastically wanky shower head.

Oh and I ordered my new phone.

Icco pizza. Oh god I could eat a hundred in one go. I wish it never ended.
