so today i decided to actually leave the house and head into town for some retail therapy
at least that was the plan, would you believe it... i came home without buying ANYTHING!!!!
anyway, i went in to meet Charlotte (shameless plug link to her blog here - Loretta Jane's Vintage Boutique) and my friend Alex who goes to University in Australia and is on the island at the minute visiting her grandparents.
i know i'm not the most social girl in the world (more of a social moth than a butterfly!) but i really enjoyed today, it was nice just to spend time with some friends and have a nice catch up (in 'the Alpine' cafe... of course)
+ i hadn't seen Alex since last September time so it was extra nice to see her again
big thanks to them both for keeping me company

ok enough about my Saturday
i also have 2 brand NEW little illustrations to share with you
those of you that follow me on Twitter or are friends with me on Facebook will probably have already seen them but... oh well!
i was sitting in my room yesterday morning listening to some music (Disney songs... again) and i started sketching little doodles of things i'd quite like to make embroidery pieces of
and what do you know... i ended up drawing these
the first one is rather yummy looking and clearly wants to be eaten...
and the next one is very super duper 'Sweet'
i'm still determined to at least have a go at embroidering them both
i have some new smaller embroidery hoops to work with so we shall see whether or not i can manage to sew a couple of cupcakes
* * *
in other news, i appear to have re-discovered my sweet-tooth!
i don't know if it's a result of the cupcake drawings or something else, all i know is i have eaten far too many sweet things today!
all i can say is so much for the New Year diet...
i'm currently surrounded by a packet of Reese's Peanut Butter cups
because i fully looooooooooove LOVE American sweets (candy? sweets... same thing) and i could literally sit and eat things like Reese's, Hershey's, Flipz, Twizzlers, Butterfingers, Nerds, Red Vines... etc etc ALL DAY LONG!!!!!
sadly the only one on the list i can find locally is the Resse's goodness
if i want anything else i need to visit sites like this - USA Candy
but just to show that i am still ever so slightly British (not that it matters anymore since the company isn't even owned by the British any more...)
to my right i also have a bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs
add to this the Caramac ice cream bar...
and an iced donut...
+ a can of Sprite...
well i don't need to tell you this isn't the healthiest bunch of snacks in the world!
suffice to say, i am clearly going straight to dieters HELL!!!

oh before i go, i noticed earlier that i've recently had my first every page hit from Jersey!!!
this is awesome news to me since i luuuuuurve Jersey very very much!
i've been lucky enough to have visited it twice in recent years and i love it there
i guess coming from an island myself i find it all very familiar visiting a place like Jersey, but that doesn't bother me, just makes me appreciate the place more!
thank you, whoever you are x
* * *
that's it for today i think, it's a Sunday tomorrow but at the moment i can't think of who to dedicate a Super SUnday post to so i might have to skip it this week!
i tend to post one every other week anyway so maybe i should just make it a fortnightly thing?!
ah well we'll see!
that's all folks...
