The Welcome Parade by Girltripped
Even though the last little while has been rough, there are still lots of good things happening.
♠ Being spoiled rotten by a certain amazing boy on my birthday, who even secretly assembled a candy-choc-whizz icecream cake complete with twenty-six candles!
♠ Even though my party didn’t go to plan, I think it was still good to have a Thing for my birthday. Can’t win ’em all
♠ We have a new kitten! Her name is Penny, she rules. Frankie the cat is starting to like her, it is the cutest ever
♠ As long as I keep breathing deep and staying focussed, I should still be able to pass my course. Graduation is next week!
♠ The universe sorting things out; positive focus
♠ Eating lots of yummy, warm food
♠ Being in bed reading while rain is pouring down outside
♠ The sun shining so crisp and bright this morning
♠ Arranging more beautiful, interesting pictures on my wall

Israel bows to pressure and agrees to ease Gaza blockade | Controversial atheism campaign to hit billboards – “The ads – which read “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life” – created a storm when they ran on buses in the United Kingdom last year.” It’ll be awesome to see these around town! | Invisibility cloaks and how to use them | Immortal avatars: Back up your brain and neverdie – “My first step on the road to immortality is to use Lifenaut‘s website to create a basic visual interface with which others, hopefully including my descendants, can interact.” | Scientists to map Ozzy Osbourne’s genetic code to find out why he is still alive | What is it with Iceland? – “The WikiLeaks advised proposal to build an international “new media haven” in Iceland, with the world’s strongest press and whistleblower protection laws, and a “Nobel” prize for Freedom of Expression, has unaminously passed the Icelandic Parliament.”

Right now I am going to make hot chocolate and listen to some sweet tunes.
