Good Evening my Sweetlings,
Today I thought I'd make a 'Currently' post to share with you all of my latest little goings on, things that I always tend to forget to mention unless I specifically sit down to write about them!
I really enjoy reading these posts when other people make them, I'm such a curious creature when it comes to what people like to read, watch and do as hobbies. I want to endeavor to make one of these types of posts every month, just a little blog related goal, therefore I'll be putting the month in the title every time I do so that it will be easier to look back on them in the future.
Firstly, to start us off, lets all take a moment to admire this amazing picture of Brian Blessed. Words cannot describe how much I love this man, nay, I adore him! I admire him so much. In fact at some point I will attempt to put into words some of the reasons I find him so wonderful, but for now I shall just give you this. I will also tell you that I've printed off a motivational poster with this very picture on it, and I've written encouraging words that I can imagine Brian saying to me. I've put it above my computer so that I see it every day, and if I get scared at night I imagine Brian protecting me and chasing off nasties!
Now, without further ado (although who doesn't like a little bit of ado now and then?), here's what I've been up to...
Watching: So many things! I'm so excited that all of the programs I enjoy are starting to air again after what feels like forever. I've just started watching Pushing Daisies after hearing about it forever and I have to say I'm really enjoying it so far! Pretty Little Liars is back again, as is Supernatural and I know there are others I'm forgetting about. I'm also in the process of marathoning Game of Thrones with my Dad, today we watched 7 episodes of Season 1 and we're going to keep going until we get up to where the show is presently, in preparation for Season 4 in April, I'm so ready! After we finish Game of Thrones we're going to start on Supernatural from the first season, my Dad has never watched it so I can't wait for this! I love watching my favorite shows with people who have never seen them before. Regarding first watches for me, I want to watch The X-Files from start to finish, I was so scared of the theme tune as a child but I feel like I'm ready now! Also I know there's an episode with Mark Sheppard in it (Crowley from Supernatural) and I seem to have fallen quite in love with him! I also want to watch Angel, finally!
Reading: This is where I reveal that what I can only describe as Blessed-mania has overtaken me! I received one of Brian Blessed's books for Christmas and ever since I've been working my way through every book of his that I could get my hands on. I read 'Quest for the Lost World' at the end of last year, and right now I'm working steadily through 'The Dynamite Kid', both have been very interesting and often quite surprising! I have his two books on Everest to read next. I also have various other books on the go, seeing as that I find it impossible to just stick to one, so I'm also reading Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb. I received the book Tithe by Holly Black for my birthday so I think that one will be next!
Listening To: I'm super excited because I recently signed up for Pandora and it is so much fun! Last year I discovered the magic of 8tracks with their premade playlists, so when I discovered that I could make my own station consisting of all the music I really enjoy it was awesome. I really love being able to just press play and not have to worry about having to keep changing songs. If you'd like to listen to my station or check out what I've been listening to then you can find my profile here. Some of my recent favorite songs are 'Kiss Them For Me' by Siouxsie and the Banshees, '1940' by The Submarines and 'Clean White Love' by Lisa Mitchell.
Wearing: I've been feeling pretty poorly for the past few days so I've been living in my pajamas whenever possible, which mainly consist of snuggly tops and slouchy trousers with pretty patterns on them. When I do get properly dressed I've been wearing anything with daisy patterns on it, or comfortable knits.
Eating & Drinking: This year I've decided to become Vegetarian after spending a lot of time quibbling with myself about my feelings on eating meat. It had gotten to a point where I was getting upset after meals because I felt so bad about eating meat, so when I moved back to my folks I said to myself 'enough is enough' and finally went for it. I've been really enjoying trying different foods that I might never have tried before, and I have to say that I'm finding it interesting to observe my own thoughts and feelings about food throughout the change. I hadn't realized before making this change how much I saw meat as being somehow necessary to meals in order to make them interesting, or the subconcious feeling I had that it was just easier to eat meat because 'meat is in everything' despite the fact that I logically knew that it's far from true nowadays. Some of my recent favorite things to eat have been Sweet Potato Pakoras and Vegetarian Sausages. Oh and cheese with sweet tomato and chilli chutney, the best edible discovery of 2014 yet! Drinks wise, nothing out of the ordinary! Lots of tea!
Thinking About: The Faery Ball and Fayre going on in Glastonbury in March! I'm super excited because I've never been to one of the Glastonbury ones and I've wanted to for quite some time. I'm going to be sharing a room with my friend Moomin and getting to hang out with my Goblin Gang and I can't wait to wander around Glastonbury and do silly dancing with them. I've been planning my outfit since I found out I could go, I often get a bit lazy about my outfits at these types of things and then wish I'd put more effort in, but not this time! This time I am pulling out all the Troll Maiden stops!
Doing: Hanging out with my folks a lot and laughing at their silly antics. I've started collecting the hilarious things my Dad says online, he is super funny and I'm so glad to be able to experience that more now, having a retired goofball Dad is pretty great! Last night, after a difficult day of feeling icky and a bad bloodtest, I asked my folks if they would come and read me a children's book in bed. They both got totally into it, my Dad sat on the chair with my Totoro hat on and read Moominland Midwinter by Tove Jansson, including extra sound effects for jingling chandeliers and snowfalls, whilst my Mum sat in bed with me and we all ate Profiteroles and drank Tea. It was so wonderful, I was laughing my head off!
What have you been up to lately my lovelies? If you make one of these Currently posts I'd love it if you could leave me a link in the comments so I can come and read it!
