I've been listening to some records today. This includes my Carousel soundtrack. It is probably one of my favourite musicals (and films) ever.

Perfect to listen to on a Sunday.

Wedding photo

I haven't really got any pictures of the wedding to show off yet but the photographer has given us this one so far (this isn't our car FYI, we didn't have one, it was just outside our hotel)


And here is a picture of the cake, taken by my sister. Had to get Doctor Who in there somewhere! It was delicious.

I will post up some pictures of the honeymoon when I get a chance. We took so many it is ridiculous. It was amazing.

People are stressing me out more than they have any right to be doing so. Hnnf.

Wedding playlist woes

Making a wedding playlist is hard. I sense that as much as I'd love to see everyone doing the twist, people may not share my enthusiasm.

7 weeks left and counting.
Argh, still so much to do. Then off to America for almost three weeks for honeymoon. So exciting!

I'm not considering this to be an auspicious start to the new year. Huh.

I'd like to get a new tattoo this year. I still want my Kodama and a cat. I shall also strive to be more organised and trying to be healthier. I did so well last year and the last few months of the year it all went downhill. I need to look after myself better than I have been.
I need to read more too. I read really quickly and I got a lot of reading done on my commute back and forth to work but now that I drive I've lost that bit of reading time. I have a pile of books to read, for the first time ever. So less time on the laptop and more time reading.

I'd also like to be on a quiz show, like Pointless. I love Pointless.
Happy new year my little dumplings. I hope you all have a wonderful 2012.
