So this is what you normal folks do on a weekend..!!!

Busy, busy, busy weekend in snowy Harrogate. Went into the shop for a couple of hours with The Goddess, to get any remaining parcels sorted. I went to pick her up at her and Jays apartment and have a cuppa. We all had a real girlie giggle whilst she was getting her face on, chatting about this and that. It was like old times when they where at home with me. Awwww...!!!  Their flat looks gorgeous, with all the Christmas decorations up.
Whilst at work I got a craving, so cooked bacon, mushroom and brown sauce butties when I got home. We then wrapped up and went for a long walk in the snow. How healthy are we..??? lmao. I then got the privelege of watching football on the telly, but soon made my excuses and caught up with some journaling....
We spent the night lounging and watching dvd's. Now you all know I love my Danny Dyer films and I had bought this one a while ago and never watched it. Well its just frikkin fabby dabby.

 Its called The Borstal Boy and it is a love story set in the second world war. It is based on the life story of the Irish Brendan Behan.
The film was actually made in 2000 when Dyer was unknown, and not released until 2008. It is a very poignant and powerful film about the bond of love, but be warned it is incredibly emotional. Heres a little overview of the story. Don't watch it if you want to see the film as it gives the ending away.

Today started off really lazily, we had intended to go boxing and do a good workout but neither of us could be arsed, lmao. Eventually we got our acts together and wandered into town. Now James is a TK Maxx devotee and is always telling me of the bargains. I meanwhile can think of nothing worse than having to rummage, and have called it Takky Makky's for years. So we had a challenge, if he could find me a fantastic bargain, and I mean fantastic, then I would be proved wrong. I was feeling really confident until he appeared at my side with these little beauties. WTF.!!!

Now how cool are these..??? They are Ed Hardy's, and I am in big lurve with them.

 So now, I, Angela Dyan Reaveley, do solemly declare that I eat my words, and officially love the place.

so I,m going to leave you with some of the finished journaling from earlier, I am on a roll and completed 6 pages altogether..!!! Not bad eh..??? Think I needed it to calm me down before the dreaded Meadowhall tomorrow, lol.

I,ve been practising my drawing again and really getting the hang of it now.

This one is all Sakura pens, and I did it in bed whilst he was sleeping..

And this one is no doubt how I will feel after shopping tomorrow..!!!

Enjoy xx
