Daisychain summer ♥

summer is very nearly over now, and it has been rather sad and horrible at times, but i have had so many lovely and wonderful adventures too, and they are not over just yet.

I have had trips to the beach, to London, to pretty little villiages full of the cutest shops, visits to see family and get togethers with old friends. Days at the park with my lovely boyfriend, shopping with mother, and legoland with my little brother. I have stayed up ever so late to lay outside under the stars, I have been 'uncle' rosie to my gorgeous niece and nephew, and have gone to watch Harry Poter at the cinema, almost making me burst with excitement!! I have visited castles and art galleries, and had tea in the prettiest little tea shops, and spent afternoons in the garden barefoot, drinking tea and drawing and pressing daisys in my little notebook.

Today my adventure was to oxford to go sphereing. If you dont know, shereing is where you are harnessed inside a gigantic blow up ball and rolled down a very big, steep hill!! It was so much fun, very strange and giggley. It was an extra birthday present my mother arranged for me and my father. I made myself look very silly when i got myself stuck trying to get into the ball, and when i screamed when it first rolled over, making everyone giggle at me who was watching!!

oh!!!! There is someone very special i would like you all to meet :)

her name is poppy, my dear little hamster. she is absolutely adorable!! she was the last one in the pet shop, and i just had to take her home with me! she is very exciteable and runs all over your lap, and all over the carpet and my bed, crawling in between my teddys and my covers. she has a lovely little house that goes inside her cage, a little white house with pink bedding and a blue roof with a blue chimney, that she sleeps in. and when she is awake she climbs all over her lovely large cage, that has an upstairs and a downstairs and a bridge and ladders. she is very funny and ever so cute!!! Her favourite toy is my little pink teapot, which she climbed ito when I had let her run around one day :) she loved it so much I am now keeping it in her cage for her!!

the etsy shop is not yet finsihed!! I have got rather stuck with materials as i have so little money, and also time, as now my little brother is on his summer holiday I have been looking after him lots!!

I move into my new uni house in two weeks, the house with the mint green front door. It is a lovely little house, and although I will miss home and my family terribly while I am there, I am so excited about moving in and decorating the house and making it very homely. and of course, the fact that my wonderful boyfriend, David, will be living their with me. It has felt strange going from living in our flat together to living at home again. I cannot wait for me and David and poppy to make our little home together!! ♥

next weekend is camping adventures in the isle of wight. i adore the isle of wight and cannot wait to go!!

    I'm glad that you had a nice Summer even though it seems you had some ups and downs.
    I don't think I could go sphereing, since I'm very sensitive to motion sickness, but it does sound like a lot of fun!

    Oh, oh, how little poppy is cute!
    She sounds like she is a lot of fun too!
    I hope you have a nice move, dear.

  14. I love the ribbon tied round the wardrobe doors! It makes me think they are hiding secrets. The Little White Horse is such a nice book. J.K. Rowling said that it inspired her when writing the Harry Potter books. I can see why! Have fun with your new hamster, dear!
