Yesterday morning, we drove up to a town called Tamworth just north of Birmingham where my grandparents live. Some idiot decided to build this town on a floodplain so the whole town centre is totes submerged. And someone was actually canoeing in a field full of water, lol. My grandparents' house is one of my favourite places in the world. Maybe because it's so far away from where we live, I just feel so withdrawn from real life when I'm there, in a good way. It's so cosy and warm and they always make the best food and I never actually want to go home. Christmas there is always the best. Anyway, all I needed for the weekend away was this:
The Catcher in the Rye is such an amazing book. I lovelovelove it so much. It's actually taking me ages to get through because the print is so tiny - I've been reading it for a few days now and it's still not done. And of course my beautiful iPod came with. Lauren Aquilina released a free download of four remixes of 'Fools' so they've been playing all weekend. Also, my dad went shopping today and came home with this from Morrison's:
Good choice, Daddy, good choice. It tastes kind of like orangeade with a hint on bubblegum. Very naaaaice!
My mum, brother and I have been campaigning for a pet pug. We luuurve them. They're so cute but pedigree pugs have a few health issues so a puggle - a pug crossed with a beagle - is probably a better bet. If it's a girl, we'll call her Sharon and if it's a boy, we'll call him Colin. I think those names are so hilarious for a dog. Or Margaret or something. But we probably won't get a dog because it's a bit of a pain when we go away and stuff. Ah well.
