I found myself rooting through the junk cupboard at work this week, where discarded items from employees long gone have been left to rot. And I found this! Now, I am quite the nostalgia junkie...flashbacks to my childhood fill me with a wonderful warm and fuzzy feeling, so this mug really brightened my day. I had one like it as a kid, and when I shared this photo on Facebook it turned out I wasn't alone...we had a group warm&fuzzy moment!
I have posted the full-size version of this image at the bottom of the post, as this scale one doesn't show the detail. This is the bush at my front door, and the raindrops on spring flowers capture the weather of the week perfectly. Spring in Scotland sure is a mixed bag!
I finally got round to getting my hair seen to, and as my usual stylist is off on maternity leave I had someone different...who seems to have made me a bit darker than I usually go for. But I like it! I've been wanting to tone down my blonde before I hit 30, and this is very nice.
My wee pooch got in her first swim of the year! There is something about watching the unbridled joy of a little mad dog dashing about the beach and bounding into the water that is infectious. The rest of us were being whipped across our cold-nipped cheeks by the gale that was blowing, but we'd have been smiling right along with her if our faces hadn't gone numb!
Another junk cupboard find...my desk is turning into the office magpie nest! This makes me giggle, as not only is a Snoopy cardiologist a lot less intimidating than the human ones I work with, but the idea that a fast food chain gave this effigy of a heart doctor away with its kids meals is so ironic, given how closely linked obesity is with heart conditions. But most of all, he's pretty cute.
I went along to the postgraduate open day at Caledonian University, and as well as some handy information I also got given this pink canvas bag. I really am finding this statement to be true, and I am hoping that a Masters in public health may be the help I need to open the oyster of the career path I want to get into.
I live by the to-do list, and nothing makes me feel more accomplished than a to-do list all ta-done. Especially a beast of a list like this one was...and this was only my work list, my housework list was twice as long (and, um...not as ta-done as this one...).
Here's that spring picture in all its glory...
