violet sun

Monday, October 28, 2013

This time of year is my favourite - school is winding down, the weather is irresistibly warm and my favourite flower blooms and blankets the town in a beautiful purple carpet. Today was a pretty good day, it started out slightly ordinary (...bad luck-ish?) as I was pooped on by a bird as I walked up the hill. Then I sat in English with a clouded brain (Shakespeare isn't coming easily to me this year, I hate to say), then I had double History and nearly fell asleep in my seat! The topic is immensely interesting, but anyone that stays up until midnight will struggle to keep their eyes open for longer than an hour. I was watching the last Lord of the Rings film (silly me, on a school night) and simply couldn't pause it. That story brings me so much joy - I think it may be my favourite over Harry Potter. Anyway! It was a good day overall because we found out school leaders for 2014 today and I was successful in my application! Yay! I'm really proud of myself and my class mates. Next year will be an amazing final year. 

Anyway, I was really pleased with how these photos turned out - the lighting was so beautiful this afternoon! Tess and I spent most of the time mucking around; at one point I dived into the tree to fetch a bouquet of jacarandas and came out covered in grass and then I did several twirls for the camera and proceeded to collapse onto the ground in a dizzy heap. I need sleep. Yep, that's it. I'm off to relax... catch up on SOR homework and watch the latest episode of Downton. I hope you're all having a lovely Monday. xo

Maria I am in love with this ensemble, especially the polka dot top!

Ah, I am like you and don't know when I should be going to bed, so I walk around like a zombie at uni.

Have you caught up with Downton yet? I feel so bad for Edith, especially when it was all going well for her :( But I am so so happy about Bates and Anna now; had that major issue not been (fairly) resolved I would have been so upset!
