I Want This Tee Shirt!

I’ve been on WordPress since November 2013, and have only just discovered that WordPress sell clothes!

I REALLY want this Navy WP Logo T Shirt, so I may have to invest in one sooner or later. And at $15.00 (£7.35 for my fellow Brits), it’s an absolute steal! I hope the delivery costs

Has anyone got one? What’s the quality like? Let me know in the comments!

On Screen Moments That Made Me Cry


Willow and Oz say goodbye (Buffy The Vampire Slayer): I’ve just started re-watching Buffy, and Willow & Oz are my favourite couple in the show. Even their break up is done out of respect for each other. It’s beautiful.

Marley and Me: the ending. I’ve only put myself through watching this film once because it is so emotional it’s unreal. I never thought I could love a dog so much.

rose and the doctor

Rose and The Doctor say goodbye (Doctor Who): We all know this one – ‘Doomsday’ is such a powerful episode (they both are). Although Rose was never my favourite, I definitely felt for her when this happened.


Seven Pounds: This is a roller-coaster of emotions. When you watch the first scene, it’s confusing. But by the time you get to the end and everything makes sense – oh god is it emotional. This is the kind of film you need to watch alone, it’s beautiful and painful at the same time.


Dobby dies (Harry Potter): Probably one of the saddest moments in the Harry Potter series. We all came to love the crazy little house elf, and he protects Harry to the end.

Catch up: What I did in Dartford!

As you know, I went to Dartford after my sister’s visit on Tuesday. Here’s what I got up to on my visit!

On my first night, I went to Mom’s crib presentation night (basically, it’s a card game). It was in support of Cancer research UK so they did a raffle – I lost. But I did get to catch up with some old friends!

Random selfie from Day 2!


My Mom is a big kid, so I bought her some Tigger slippers in Primark (they were on sale!). And ages ago I bought her this Eeyore

I went to see my brother, Dan for some beer and pizza! It was so yummy and it was great to catch up with him!



On Day 3, I went to Bluewater with an old friend from school. We had a laugh, but shopping gets a bit dull when you have nothing specific to buy so I ended up in the Disney store and HMV.  Then I went home to watch Disney movies with my Mom (actually, I watched movies – she was asleep.)

Oh, I found Hubba Bubba in the corner shop –  I couldn’t resist!bubblegum

Selfie on the train home! I look so miserable.

We all know I’m a bit of a shopaholic, so what did I buy?
