There be none of Beauty’s daughters
With a magic like Thee;
And like music on the waters
Is thy sweet voice to me:
When, as if its sound were causing
The charméd ocean’s pausing,
The waves lie still and gleaming,
And the lull’d winds seem dreaming:
And the midnight moon is weaving
Her bright chain o’er the deep,
Whose breast is gently heaving
As an infant’s asleep:
So the spirit bows before thee
To listen and adore thee;
With a full but soft emotion,
Like the swell of Summer’s ocean.
George Gordon Byron
It’s not to stop smoking.
Though it should be.
It’s not to join the gym.
Though it needs to be.
It’s to be brave.
My Dad’s always said it’s a waste of life being shy.
And I see his logic. I’m fed up of missing out.
So I’ve begun to really challenge myself.
When I start to worry I ask myself ‘do I actually care?’
And the answer’s always no so I smile and carry on.
Already I worry less and I laugh more.
I’m officially hooked on Instagram.
If you haven’t got it then get it!
Here are a few of my more recent shots.
I use Camera+ first to edit the images then
sometimes use an Instagram filter.

I adopted Nody
Did I bang my head?
I can’t remember.
It’s pretty painful.
But no sleep.
I don’t remember.
I’m so confused?
Do you remember?
My brain feels cloudy.
I just can’t remember.
Am I ok?
Should I worry?
My brain feels cloudy,
Never, ever, ever knew before today that HP stood for Houses of Parliament! And there’s even a photo them on the bottle!
How amazing. I’ve gone through my life - with these bottles everywhere - at home, in the pub, on supermarket shelves, etc, etc - and not once did I ever study the detail.
I just thought ‘HP’ was probably the inventor’s initials.
I feel enlightened. How can I have never known or noticed that?
I remember being told by someone that our brains do not have the capacity to record most of life’s detail, so we focus. We only absorb an incredibly minute amount of information from the world around us, compared with what exists, to enable us to function. This bottle was among the millions of everyday things that are blanked from existence from my mind to make room for what’s to take it’s place.
HELL YES McVitie’s have teamed up with WWF to give people the opportunity to adopt a penguin. Love it!
Here’s the info about the campaign I’ve nicked from the WWF online article:
We’re launching a new promotional campaign with McVitie’s Penguin biscuits to help draw attention to the plight of real penguins in and around the Antarctic.
This joint on-pack promotion with United Biscuits will run across the entire range of McVitie’s Penguins – one of Britain’s most popular chocolate biscuit brands. As part of the new Protect the Penguins scheme, McVitie’s is giving away over 2,500 WWF penguin adoption packs – 30 every day from the beginning of March until 23 May 2010. Plus there will be 30 more offered in a special late prize draw on 16 September 2010.
For a chance to win, you just need to buy a promotional packet of Penguin biscuits, go to the McVitie’s Penguin website and fill in some details from the pack. You’ll then be entered into the daily prize draw. While you’re there, you can check out some of the penguin facts and fun on the site.
Every winner gets a free WWF Adelie penguin adoption package for a year. The pack includes an adoption certificate, a cuddly penguin soft toy, a stand-up image of an Adelie penguin, a greetings card and a fact booklet. They’ll also receive three updates from WWF throughout the year.
If you’re not one of the lucky winners, you can of course still visit our adoption page and buy a penguin adoption pack directly from us.
WWF and McVitie’s
United Biscuits is also donating £100,000 to help our conservation of penguins in the Antarctic and our other essential work.
WWF’s director of corporate partnerships, Patrick Laine, says: “This collaboration with the much-loved McVitie’s Penguin brand is the ideal opportunity for WWF to raise awareness and funds to help conserve wild Adelie penguins and their Antarctic habitat.” United Biscuits say: “WWF is the perfect partner for our McVitie’s Penguin brand, and the relationship marks the start of a long-term commitment to help support the conservation of penguins and their habitats. Why have they not done this sooner!!!?? Brilliant! Watch out for the tv ad too!
This caught my attention from a cafe window.
