day 15. a photo of you and someone you love. This is me with two of my friends, we are at the playground near my house. I really can't believe it was almost four years ago! I love this picture:)

I've kind of decided that you won't see other people's faces in my blog. I could ask permissons from everyone but I haven't told anyone that I'm writing a blog. I just feel that it's something I want to keep to myself.

i love my mum

day 14. a photo of one of your favourite family members. I don't have other photos than these of my family so here they are again. However, mama is my favourite of them. My mum's the best mum anyone could have:)

i've got 99 problems but a snitch ain't one!

Shirt - Karkkainen
Blouse-thingy - River Island
Skirt - Somewhere from London
Shoes - Barratts

I had a Harry Potter day today. I actually had an amazing time:) I visited Voldemort's grave at Greyfriars (Thomas Riddell -> Tom Riddle), and had lunch at the elephant house, where Rowling spent time writing Potters. How cool is the toilet!

I'm so happy about the fact that I've visited some HP places. Besides these two, I've been to King's Cross, the bridge there and platform 9¾, and the London zoo where the snake scene from PS was filmed. Aaa, that's all I think:) I do love Harry Potter, if you didn't notice♥

the hardest word

day 12. a photo of you. Ehm, I think this is one of my outfit photos that I've never posted. I have some on my computer from the previous weeks. Oh well...

day 13. a photo of your best friend(s). Aye, my cat is my best friend. Some may think it's a bit sad but. I've known Cleo for pretty much always and she's always been there for me. I can tell her anything, she'll listen and she won't go and talk behind my back. She shares all the things I love to do, eats with me, reads with me, watches old movies with me, sleeps with me and all that.

Oh, this makes me miss her so much! And Cleo's eyes are scary in this picture:( Normally she's prettier.

Yesterday was my hostsister's birthday. We went out for tea, to Coronation Restaurant in Gorebridge. The night was nice and the food was lovely.

Body - Mama's old
Skirt - Self-made
Jacket - My aunt's old
Bag - 2nd hand

Shoes - New look

She also had a joined 18th party with one of her friends. That was last Saturday and it was gid. I didn't have a camera with me but I might still have some pictures from that night. If I have you might just see them someday.

day 11. a photo of your favourite film(s).

Pride & prejudice image

Pride & Prejudice is my favourite of favourites. The film's  (almost) as beautiful as the book. And I do think this version with Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen is the best one. Lizzie is probably the character to whom I can relate the most.


Gandalf: [humming] “Down from the door where it began. And I must follow if I can.”
[The hobbit closes his book and stands, listening. Recognising the voice, he smiles then runs to the road. An old man, wearing a gray cloak and a pointy hat, is driving a horse-drawn cart filled with fireworks and such.]
Gandalf (singing):
“The road goes ever on and on,Down from the door where it began.Now far ahead the road has gone,And I must follow if I can…”
Frodo: [folding his arms] “You’re late!”
[The old man does not look at the hobbit at first, and then turns slowly, with an annoyed expression on his face that begins to twitch.]
Gandalf: “A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.”
[Both he and Frodo slowly begin to grin and crack up into laughter.]
Frodo: [leaps onto cart and hugs the old man] “It’s wonderful to see you Gandalf!”
Gandalf: [laughs] “Ooh! You didn’t think I’d miss your Uncle Bilbo’s birthday?”

Lord of the Rings was love at first sight. A lot of my friends say they think only the battle scenes are interesting but I love the beginning with the Shire and the travelling toward Mordor and everything. I'm also a bit ashamed to admit that lotr is one of the only books that I like more as a film. It's not like I didn't enjoy the books but I prefer the films. The events happen quicker and there isn't years - or decades - between them.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is brilliant. I don't know, I just love it.

i only want what i can't have

I've been looking at these once before and they are still as charming as I remembered. I really love typewriters so this'd be ideal. They are so beautiful!

USB Typewriter -- Super Sterling with USB Port

In Finland I have two typewriters, one was my dad's and one mama's. I'd really like to use them more, but I don't know what to do with them. I've used them to write letters sometimes, though handwriting's much nicer. So it'd be lovely to have one as a keyboard:)

USB Typewriter for PC, Mac, iPad -- Black Royal

Oh, and I don't know if it's just me or is the text or something about this looking different.

Pictures from here and here.

i have no friends, and i don't like my family


day 8. a photo of your favourite band/musician. The Beatles, the best.

day 9. a photo of your family. My brother, sister, me, my cousin and mama. Ehm, this was taken when I was 15. That says something about how much we spend time together.. Naw, we do see each other but no-one can bother to take pictures of their family. At least I don't.

I was busy studying yesterday so i did two days today. (Actually I just ate all day and went to bed early..) I've done all my prelims for this week and I think they went ok. And I ope they went ok. Everyone in my English class were saying they found the close reading easy and I was sitting there by myself thinking that I'm the stupidest person in the room to think it wasn't easy. Still I'm quite positive I'll pass. And I still have more prelims to come..

i'll send all my loving to you

day 7. a photo of someone you love. Cleopatra Alexandra Arthur-Jones♥ I've had her since I was about two and she's not only someone I love but someone I love the most. Mama called me yesterday and said my poor baby's ill, I really hope she'll get better:( She's the only thing I actually miss from Finland. Just look at her wee face, too cute.

/edit She only has otitis and is getting better:>

funny graphs and charts

day 6. a photo that makes you laugh. I couldn't find any funny photos from myself so I decided to post this picture. Can't say that I actually laugh a lot to this but I find it, and similar things, funny. I can spend hours on websites full of these thingys and laugh by myself. Or at least laugh in my mind. I have a lame life:)

Picture from here.

day 4. a photo of the last place you went on holiday. My organisation's mystery trip. The first one's from Glasgow but I'm not sure about the second. It might be Oban, Dunoon or Inveraray. The holiday was nice:)

Oh, I can't wait for the next holiday! Three weeks to that, I think. I don't have any plans but I know I'll enjoy my holiday even I wasn't doing anything extraordinary.

Wednesday, 19 January 2011


Haha, I started this 30 day thingy well! Day three and I've already missed one.. I've also realised how hard it'll be to find different photos to all these. I use my host family's computer, so my pictures are in Finland. I can only use pictures I've taken after August, oh and the ones I have on facebook. We'll see how this'll go:) !

day 2. a photo of yourself a year ago. This is almost exactly a year ago, in January at least.

day 3. a photo that makes you happy. I'm so cute! Ü

better to be hated than loved for what you're not

Shirt - Topshop
Vest - H&M
Trousers - Mama's old
Tie - NCHS
Shoes - Barratts
Bow - Self-made

No need to worry, I won't start posting my school uniform every day, that'd be just silly. However, this is what I wore today. Before this year I had just a few black clothes and it's strange how I now have to wear black all week. Well, I also wear grey clothes even we aren't really allowed to..

Actually I should be revising as the prelims are getting closer. Next week :| ! It might happen that I forget to revise today and spend my time here instead. I wouldn't be surprised.

he says don't think, don't talk

I had a nice day yesterday:) Went uptown and I was going to the museum but then I noticed that The National Gallery had a small display by the young Vermeer. So I went to see that and everytime I go to the Gallery I have to go and see the works of the impressionists too. (Ok, I haven't been there more than once before this but still!)

I bought a new diary from there and I really like it. It's Turner's Bell Rock Lighthouse and I think it's rather pretty. There's also my old diary in the picture, I really couldn't live without one. I write an awful lot all the time and carry a diary with me to pretty much all places. I don't often (I first wrote never, but that'd be a lie) talk about my feelings or anything like that, so I kind of have to write my thoughts and feelings down. And in fact I find writing much nicer than talking.. :)

I might've popped into some shops on my way home and bought my new lovedress♥. Peter Pan collar + coral, ah. I'm seriously thinking of buying more of these in different colours. I've been thinking of sewing a Peter Pan collar dress for a while but nothing has happened. It wouldn't be that hard so I might give it go, within a year or so.. I even drew myself in the dress to the first page of my diary, it's so pretty::)

Oh, I blurred my number so I wouldn't get any funny calls. But I like getting mail so I left my address almost completely, haha. It's not actually mine but my host family's. Don't send any rubbish to them!

New look, £16.99?

Cardi - Primark
Dress - Mama's old
Top - Bday present from France
Belt - Mama's
Tights - Seppala

And now I'm going to spend the rest of my day with Stephen and innocent♥.
