I enjoy these times

Eclipse - The Twilight Saga

I went to see Eclipse last week and I gotta say, I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I mean, I REALLY REALLY REALLY LURRRVVEEE the books (I am one of those sad losers who knows the quotes of by heart and believes the characters are real), and I even loved the first movie. But I absolutely hated New Moon. Well, I disliked New Moon the book, out of the rest of the saga so I'm not so surprised, but as for Eclipse, well it's different. The book was AMAZING but as all book-turned-movies, I was heart broken. However, those of you who haven't seen it yet, by all means GO NOW AND SEE IT. My friends all enjoyed it and want to watch it again and again. But for me it did nothing. Actually, the love scenes made me cringe and the action scenes made me laugh. I'm sooooo critical. But I'm going to watch it again and see if maybe it was because I had VERY HIGH expectations of the film. Ahhh...oh well, enjoy my photos pre-movie.

Yes ,this is my wall and yes, I am a twihard, ahaha!

Team Edward?

Team Jacob?

Can't I just have both? (sorry about the weird face expressions)

Sewing Machine
My auntie had decided to get rid of her sewing machine, however I saved the day and gave the poor baby a new home - my bedroom.
I haven't started using it yet, but I know that is what my summer will consist of. I tried using it yesterday with the mother but we nearly ended up breaking it, so I'm waiting for my aunt to pay us a visit to help us. So I'm banging up some photos of it, so if anyone has any advice on how to use it I'll be very thankful :)

Isn't it beautiful?

This is the first official week of my holidays and I've got Work Experience! It's at a school specially designed for children with autism. As it's summer vacation, they hold a playsheme and I am volunteering with the activities. Today was the training session and from tomorrow till Friday I will come home tired and exhausted due to all the running around/activities.

'till next time, xoxo
