Adopting an iPhone, to be more exact. Due to some fuck-up by my operator, they told me I was due an upgrade in December. But I want an iPhone NOW!! phone calls and some dodgy on-hold music later I was told I had extended my contract by 6 months last June, something I do not remember doing. I do remember getting free texts for promising to stay with the same operator for further 6 months, but at no point was I told I was extending my contract which I explained to my "designated customer service representative". She promptly put me on hold again to speak with her "team leader" and then returned to tell me they had decided to let me upgrade now. Oh, joy!

I had a whole story planned on how I needed an iPhone for work, or some other crap like that but turns out it was enough that I've been a loyal customer for years. I'm also getting a new wireless modem in pink to match my laptop. I'm in gadget heaven now.

Due to some barbecuing and wine-drinking last night, the manicure I gave myself at around 1am this morning is looking slightly less fabulous in the cold light of day than it did when I was going file-happy with my polishing block. I'm just glad the nails are my own instead of some acrylic monstrosities I paid a small fortune for.

Early Morning

I'm sat here in my PJs, it's just gone 7.30 in the morning on a Sunday, and I feel like sharing.

I'm in the kitchen, sipping on my second cup of coffee and slowly waking up. Lily the cat is laying on the kitchen table trying to catch an invisible bug off the wall. Tom the cat is fast asleep under the kitchen table on his favourite chair.

Mr S worked late last night and woke me up when he came to bed at around 3am. I'm fighting the urge to go and wake him up just because I want company.

The house is blissfully quiet apart from the radio breakfast show. For someone who functions infinitely better at night time, I do like my quiet mornings. I don't mind getting up early just so I can have my coffee in peace, read my emails and catch up on the news without rushing.

All is quiet. Love it.

Happy Things

All these things made me smile

* Little Lion Man by Mumford and Sons
* Loud music in the car
* Meeting someone called Agamemnon (I'm serious)
* Giggling at nothing in girly company
* Smell of successfully home made focaccia bread
* Fresh flowers from Mr S
* Being told I looked pretty by a stranger
* Rediscovering shoes I'd forgotten I owned (they're very very pretty)
* Finding one Rolo in a bag I thought was empty
* Realising you're never too old to buy all things cow-print
* Lush Ltd hair products
* Sharing childhood memories with my very first best friend
* Arranging all my DVDs according to genre (I told you I had OCD)
* Finding out my brother and I have some strange things in common
* Bridget Jones
* I Lick My Cheese
* Finding my Fall Out Boy CD after thinking I'd lost it

...and so much more. All this just over the last couple of days. I'm feeling so very contented the cynical part of me wants to slap me.
