I had to use this photo for this week’s photo challenge. This was taken outside Cyber Candy, a candy shop in Soho. They have all sorts of lovely American sweet treats. It’s the one place in the UK that I’ve been able to find Big Red chewing gum. For those of those who don’t know, Big Red is a cinnamon-flavoured chewing gum. It’s readily available in the Philippines but ever since I’ve moved over, I’ve been feeling the withdrawal symptoms because I can’t just pop into a convenience store over here and just buy a pack of them. I just had to laugh because for those of us who watch the Simpsons, Duff is not an energy drink!
It’s a quiet but very sunny day.
I’m sitting at the registration desk that we’ve been running since Sunday and I feel sleepy. To be honest, am probably more tired than sleepy. It’s quiet, and there’s a lull in activity. I would probably give a lot to get the chance to curl up and take a quick (or not-so-quick) nap.
But that’s not possible when your job is to manage these events. Tomorrow night is going to be a long night! I always joke about the fact that my job is always in the way of me having a life. It used to be a joke, albeit prophetic, but now, I think it’s more a statement of fact!
It was hard to find a picture for this week’s photo challenge topic. But I thought this photo, taken at Hampton Court provided enough on the subject of contrast. I had forgotten about this photo. It was interesting to see how bright the blue skies were (although, now that I think about it, it was slightly overcast on the day that we went to visit Hampton Court!) and how dark the castle walls were!
Nope, not a paid advert. I promise!
Sometimes it’s just nice when you enter a competition for something and you get it. I love girly things and something nice arrived in the post today. I entered a competition to get samples of a new line of L’Oreal shampoos and conditioners. I was a teeny bit jaded about entering competitions like this, because, well, I never win! But my little package of joy came in the post today. What girly girl won’t appreciate beauty products, especially free ones? What was even lovelier was that they sent full-sized samples!
I can’t wait to try them later!
