Summer Summer Summer!!

I haven't been updating much as of late as I have been busy with the move and getting settled in. I have so many lovely pictures I need to show, so I will try to get some time to update!

In the meantime, here are some recent summery pictures. We have been enjoying some warm and wonderful days lately and I even donned a bikini and sunbathed on the yard. Now I just need to try and fit in swimming in the sea before the summer goes away.

Such a Little Thing

Isn't it funny how something very small can make you feel nostalgic? The other day I found this larva on the lawn and I was instantly catapulted back into the summers of my youth. We had a shed that had a lot of stinging nettles growing behind it and there used to be lots and lots of these stuck to the nettles. Me and my brothers would pick them up and look at them, and they would do exactly what they did when I found this little one: roll into a ball. I haven't seen one of these for years!

Sexy Heels, Stupid Gravel

I wore this apple green Brodeire Anglaise dress for the very first time the other day. Not only is it terribly cute but also one of the few dresses I have in green! The shoes that got the honours for this outfit were a pair of chunky black wedge heels. 

I have worn them once before and know that I am fully capable of walking in them, even though they are one of the highest heels I own. Unfortunately and embarrassingly enough I managed to do something that I have never done before though: I fell while walking in these heels! Fortunately there was nobody to witness my embarrassing incident, other than Karl, and I had thankfully not broken or sprained anything in my fall. I did scrape my knee though and ripped my tights... The ones on the knees would not have been so bad, but I felt embarrassed about the big gaping hole from which my toes were poking out! I firmly blame the gravel I was walking on though and not the shoes. The shoes are sexy and cannot be blamed!

I am a bit in love with the cardigan as it not only features cherries but also a tiny and adorable polka dot pattern in green. The only bad thing about the cardigan is that it has such short sleeves and sometimes in the heavily air conditioned office I will feel chilly.

I can't get over how cute this necklace is! The tiny little flowers look so delicate.

As you can see it was very windy when these pictures were taken!

When Can I Move and When Can I see My Friends Again?

It is only a few days until payday and I hope to be able to move into a new place during next weekend. I haven't been able to go and view any places yet, as money has been very tight at the end of this month, so I am slightly scared of not being able to find anything nice quickly enough.

Right now it feels as there are a lot of loose ends surrounding the move: I'm not able to view any places yet, so I don't know if the places I may be interested in will still be available when I can, it is too early to start packing any of my stuff, but then again I have so much packing to do that I don't know when I should start packing. Ah!

What keeps me not going crazy is the idea of being able to see my friends a lot more frequently and without the hassle of a 45 minute bus journey into the town in order to do so.

These pictures are from when I went to see Pilvi in town not too long ago and we went to a Tea Garden (more like a neon carpeted dungeon). I generally am not into tea at all, but the fruity variety we ordered - called Grandmother's Garden - was incredibly tasty!
