1. It is not even the end of September (a month back home that signals the start of Spring, but really just a milder summer because we don't really have distinctive seasons at the bottom of the dark continent. Sun, sun, one month less sun, more sun. Edinburgh's summer is our winter. It is glorious. I miss vitamin D. Remind me why I left? *chants* first world, first world, first world...) and yet my adopted city has decided it is winter already. It's dark, wet, cold and windy. All my worst weathers in one.
2. Anyone else feel like Christmas is coming early this year? Or just Sainsburys in Edinburgh who already have an entire aisle dedicated to Christmas goodies. WTF. It's not even Halloween people. I feel like this may or may not be related to point number 1. Stop confusing the weather gods big Retail giants! Unless I get presents early, in which case, do continue.
3. I will see Jemily this weekend. YES. Despite getting the months mixed up (ugh, see 1. and 2.) as to when I was meant to be visiting, I managed to organise my life, get very last-minute leave approved, bought presents, restrained myself from playing with said presents (have had to box them up, because I am 5 years old with zero self-control), bought vodka (because, obviously) in no time at all. Jemily and I are mostly excited for the bouncy castle that will be at a kid's party we are attending, and the fact that we are going to introduce beer pong to Liverpool (with proper red cups specially sourced from America!). Outfits planned, bags (almost) packed, fun ahead.
4. And as it is Wednesday that means *drum roll* MENSDAY. Couldn't go buy another week without a yummy pic. You're welcome.
|oh jake. you are so pretty.|
