How are you?
The last few weeks have been rather full on for me, and I've been getting up to all sorts of wonderful things, including:
On a new ride for Tom, because I need a car for my new job. This was justified by Tom citing something about better mileage, but I know he's never liked our snot-green one. Tom's new car is red and sporty (i.e. it has a spoiler) and I've inherited the green one, which I've decided to starting calling The Bogey Van. While not technically accurate, it's the best snot-related pun I could think of. If you've got a better one, please add it in the comments below.
Kickstarter Kicks - in the form of these incredible Tricera Hi-Tops. If I was ever going to spend more than £20 on a pair of shoes, I reckon these would be the way to go.

At my friends' wedding - the band was on fire and I was determined to keep throwing shapes for as long as I could. Thanks to the open bar, I have an ominous suspicion that I need to send individual apologies/ funding for therapy to all of the other guests for any underwear-flashing scenarios resulting from my overly-enthusiastic twirling.
Presents for my friend's birthday, and a present for the bride and groom of the aforementioned wedding (which I gave them in advance, but I'm now hoping also works as a post-twirling-event apology).
The birthday presents' wrapping hinted at the contents, with the comic book cover hiding a comic, and the dinosaur paper containing a necklace from DesignosaurYEAH.
A million and one DIY projects which I'm hoping to tackle this week, because Tom and I have taken the whole week off work. Hurrah!
A new jar to keep my coffee in. Crafting is probably stretching it really, as I just wrote on an empty jar with a glass pen.
The Mystery of Mercy Close by Marian Keyes, and a bit of Enid Blyton - to snigger at the rude bits.
The Marian Keyes novel was a good mystery, but much darker than I'd anticipated because the protagonist has severe depression. I've been trying to get back into the habit of using my local library, despite the weight difference between a book and my Kindle. I reckon lugging around the extra weight totally balances out the cheesecake.
At a seriously incredible hotel and spa, which I'm going to tell you all about later this week.
Finally, I would just like to thank Urban Dictionary for helping me to compose the most gangsta post I've ever written*, which I'm linking up to Hannah's lovely blog round-up, The Week That Was Captured(#TWTWC).
* I might have Googled "Hip Hop term for car". Sometimes I'm so trendy it hurts.
