press play and enjoy while reading.
so, tomorrow i'm off to manchester, in pretty much exactly 24 hours. i have been all packed since sunday because i had a traumatic last minute packing experience last time i went to england, last december. i made an exact packing list this time, so exact in fact that i listed the number of knickers and colours of certain shirts. i thought this time i pack in mainly white, black and marine style shirts. and jeans. this way, everything will kinda fit together! plus a few dresses. i eventually decided to wear the new black dress on richards graduation on thursday. so soon!
i will be gone and happy for the next month pretty much. there will be tears on the 25th of august because i get overly sentimental when i have to say goodbye to the family, and, of course, to richard. i'm hoping that the shopping i will make there will console me after.
also i will miss everybody here in the mean time. had such an extremely nice evening yesterday because rita spoilt us with food and snacks and drinks from all over the world! she's a flight attendant you know. it was so nice, thank you rita! and i had to say my goodbyes to mona because she will be leaving for a serious amount of time while i'm away already. trendy montpellier is the place. but i'll be so happy to meet everybody when i'm back again, especially since we will all still be on a uni break. and despite holiday jobs and internships, there will be more time than usual to meet and be girlygirly.
went to see my parents on sunday and couldn't resist rummaging in my massively big barbie box, where there are treasures such as my keypers, a beverly hills 90210 brandon ken, tyco quints, a cupcake doll, cherry merry muffin dolls AND four mini cabbage patch kids. i have been looking for those in particular and i wouldn't stop rummaging in that dusty corner of my former room until i found the 4th and cutest mini cpk:
there's one that looks like me, plus longer hair, minus 10 years:
speaking of vintage toys. the other day i was looking for a safety pin in that practical wooden box on my desk, but found another childhood treasure instead. my lufthansa "kid+teen" super jigsaw. it's way better than your usual jigsaw because you can play this for hours on end. thing is, i'm really good at this, i can fix it in about 5 min and there is no special trick to it, except maybe that you should see to it that you put in the chunkier pieces first. i'm so good at it, that my mates in school thought i fooled them and secretly memorised several ways to finish it. not true! i'm just a clever dickie. luckily i found this before i go on a lufthansa flight. maybe i will get an extra sandwich if i casually play with it during my flight, hah!
just how cool is this? this is better than sudoku and tetris combined. pleasure for hours and hours.
german "summer" is kindly preparing me for 4 weeks in england. rain rain rain. and the occasional rainbow! it must be rainbow time because saturday, late in the evening, i came home from my nan to witness this
and guess what, this morning i accidentally woke up at half past 6 and looked outside the window to find this
amazingness. the only reason i have a picture of the early morning rainbow is that i sleep next to my mobile, sad. as ifff mario testino would ring me in the middle of the night telling me he wants me for a photo shooting, haha!
will post again later, recent outfits need to be broadcast.
