Paint!



I really really want to paint my room! I only have a couple of problems; what colour? But, more importantly, can I afford it?
I am completely torn between a regency style green, or a country style yellow?
A bit of background; all my bedroom furniture is cream/ivory. I have a metal frame bed with bed knobs - also cream, I have a multitude of pictures that need to be put up but I'm waiting until I've painted. Lots of books and shelves, I just don't know what colour to paint!!!! Oooh or lilac!
I like these ideas (images found on google) <<
Can you see why I'm so torn!? They are all beautiful! Each would fit perfectly for different moods, the green for when I feel intellectual and want to read a book and escape to another world, the yellow would be lovely fo when I feel warm and perfectly English with tea and crumpets in bed with my love. But then the lilac is just pretty and calming, and also neutral - I still live at home with my mum, sisters and step father, so when I move out it would be easier for me to at least leave a room which would be easy to paint over, but as I have one more year at college then a further three at university in which I will still live at home in the holidays or when I want to come back. Oh the decision is just too hard!


My older sister is making scones tomorrow! I'm quite excited! Although I can't help, as I'll be working. Slightly annoying but I need the money! Especially as my tickets for V Festival have arrived! WOOHOO! It's going to be great! Provided the weather gets better. Going shopping next week for some new festival clothes!


What do you think about the painting?

Paris

Oh Paris was absolutely wonderful! My mind has forgotten about all the pain my feet went through and is now just left with happy memories.
Kieran and I did practically everything we wanted to. The things we missed - the Pere-Lachaise cemetary and a boat trip down the Seine, they give us an excuse to go back! The show at the Moulin Rouge was great, lots of boobies but still fantastic, the dancers were so energetic it amazes me!
We got back on Friday night, very late. I wanted to blog about it sooner but have been so tired then back to work.

We stumbled upon the cafe from "Amelie" in Montmartre by complete accident, it wasn't until after I'd eaten my "Croque Monsieur" that Kieran noticed lots of people taking photos of the cafe from outside that we realised! I noticed the Amelie theme to the cafe but it just didn't click!
I can't wait until our next adventure, but next time - comfier shoes! If we do another city trip I might invest in fitflops or the trainer version, if I'm going to be walking around lots again, I might as well improve my bum!
Must sleep now. Goodnight xx

One day!

Only one day to go until I finish school for the summer! Only 4 sleeps until PARIS! I am SO excited! The Moulin Rouge and croissants and Montmartre and it'll be wonderful! So romantic too! I really cannot wait, I've already decided I want to look classy and sophisticated, just need to go through my clothes and see if anything fits the criteria! Our hotel is so sweet too, the Hotel D'Argenson, it's right next to a "boulangerie"! Fresh pastries and that lovely smell of fresh bread, I wish it was now! Although I have so much to do.

I got a bike on Monday, it's so sweet and what's better is, it was free! It belonged to Kieran's mum, I have yet to take a photo but that shall follow once the rain dies down a little. I washed it yesterday. Now, it needs new tyres, but that's fine, I've already done my research and found some adorable ones, with white walls for £20-ish, which is fine, my neighbour is a bicycle enthusiast and I have already asked if he will help me in fixing it up, to which he agreed. I'd love to paint it, or have it painted (I'm not sure I'd be the best person to give a can of spray paint to) but that can wait until I have sufficient funds. It's an "Apollo County" and very retro looking, and I love it!

What else is new. Oh yes! Last day of the school year tomorrow! The day itself will be extremely dull as it's "Speech Day" and apparently, the new headmaster's speech is very long. But I will go, I suppose... No, I really will! I have to, not only is it compulsory but I want to sit for about 10 hours or however long it lasts as it's the last day ever for the girls going to uni and I want to say my goodbyes. I've written in leaving books, but those things don't give hugs!

On the subject of uni, it's beginning to terrify me! Where do I go!? Will I get in? What if I fail? What if I get rejected from everywhere? What if I can't do it? So stressful. I've settled on the course that I want to do, but I have to decide where I want to go to do it. Hopefully I'll get in, and be able to afford the time overseas during the course, otherwise I'd have to stay in England, and I really really would love the life experience!


I think this is my first post in which I've written a lot, however I am tired and the screen is making my eyes a bit funny.
