Today has been a shit day. But also a good day as I'm relieved to be out of a bad situation. I'm amazed by how nasty and childish people in 'management' positions can be. But I'm better than that, I refuse to be rude and insulting even if I'm treated like that by these people. At least I can say that I've always been professional.

So I've started my March Mission by taking a photo of what I wore to work today. I wore my Jasper Conran striped blouse, black leggings and a grey woollen pinafore style dress. I can't remember quite where I bought the dress from, I think it was a shop called Joy and I have a feeling it was from Leeds. However, it was £5 so it was definitely a bargain. I liked it in the shop, hated it when I got home, stored it in the wardrobe for years and now I love wearing it! Funny how tastes change.

Today I have been browsing Game Of Thrones related products and have decided I'd like a poster to go up in my study. I'm beginning to think that I'm not going to have enough wall space for all the things I want to put up around the house! I've also been doing a bit more editing of the photos from the airfield.

This evening I have been Pinterest-ing and doing a bit of photo editing. We had my Dad over for tea, which was nice, then the boy went to bed early leaving me to my artistic hour! I'm so obsessed with Pinterest at the moment. I'm using it to look for ideas for decorating my new house since I have a blank canvas; the main reason I wanted a brand new build. There's some amazing inspiration for anything you could think of! Lovely! I've also edited some photos from our third trip to the abandoned airfield. It was a nice day so we were able to get some good shots. I think I've come out with my best ever photo too! The lighting was just stunning in the toilets inside the lab building so it's created a shot I'm super happy with.

Today I went to work as usual. Had a nice catch up with my friends then came home. When I reached my car there was a rose underneath the windscreen wipers! I have no idea where it came from or who put it there! I haven't parked there for a while as I had a week off, so I just don't get it. It was a nice surprise though; it's not like that happens to me every day! I wonder if I'll get one again. In other news, I met with the producer from the film I'm working on this Thursday so I'm looking forward to getting stuck in!

Today has been a nice day off. Firstly, I had a nice lie in. Then we went to Willow Pool to take a few photos. Sadly it was a bit bare but we did have a nice lunch there. We stopped off at Walton Gardens and had a quick walk around the zoo. We then went for our belated Valentines Day meal at the Chilli Club, which is a thai restaurant in Lymm. It's amazing and I really recommend it! I'm definitely looking forward to our week away in March though! I'm desperate for a real break.

Today we had our kitchen refitted. It looks so much nicer and has given us much more storage space, we still don't have a lot of worktop shop which is a shame as it makes the room look smaller. However, our fridge is now neatly tucked away and people can actually sit around the table without it being a complete squash.

Put Your Paws In The Air:

Song Of The Day: Clea - Download It

Today took a trip to a couple of local animal rescue places to find out more about volunteering. I'm hoping that we hear back soon as I'm really desperate to start gaining experience. I was very tempted to adopt a dog or another cat, but none were really suited to us and our existing pets if I'm honest. Very sad to see so many unwanted animals who are just desperate for a home.

Today I have been rediscovering Hipstamatic. I love it far more than Instagram as it's more similar to real analogue photography as you can choose your lenses and films to get the look you want. I just love playing around with it and being experimental; it's a lot cheaper than wasting loads of film on dodgy photos. This was with the Salvador 84 lens, which is just crazy!

Surreal Mousey:

Song Of The Day: Lana Del Rey - Riding In Cars With Boys

Today I had lots and lots of Asami cuddles under the duvet whilst I did a spot of online shopping. It's so nice when she's affectionate as most of the time she just runs off. Whilst I was getting into bed I noticed that the (half built) wardrobe has a spoon hidden in the pattern of the wood! How random!

Secret Spoon:

Today we bought a wardrobe. This means I can finally start to sort out our bedroom. It's not the exact style I want, but the ones I want are super expensive so I'm going to be using this one for the mean time and then save up to buy my dream ones.

Today we bought muffins from one of the cafes in town. They do the nicest, biggest muffins I've ever eaten. I assume they're freshly baked as they're so soft on the inside but have a nice crunchy top. Perfect! I really can't remember what it's called but it's in the same shopping center as the Asda!

Today has been a real gloomy day. The weather has been terrible and it's been dull the entire time. I am very much ready for it to be spring with some warmer weather and lighter evenings. I'm also looking forward to wearing my spring/summer wardrobe as I'm getting bored of trying to find cardigans or coverups that match every outfit.

Soap & Glory:

This evening we have had a nice half hour or so playing with the boys. We also did the last of their spot on treatments for Quigley's mites so hopefully that will well and truly be the end. Quigley seems to be back to his normal self, nice and groomed with no little cuts/sores, so I'm glad he's much happier now. I'm also determined to find them a new even bigger cage, I've seen some huge ones that can fit multiple platforms in so that would be ideal, the only bad side is that they all tend to have wire floors which I do not like at all. The right cage is out there I just need to find it!

Ready To Explore:

Song Of The Day: Grendel - Dirty
Reason: Not listened to Grendel for ages, they were one of the best live bands I've seen though.

Highlight Of The Day: Takeaway Nandos

Inspiration Of The Day: A catalogue from Butlers that my Mum dropped off, it has some really nice stuff and seems decently priced.
