From 2012 to 2013

Did you know that according to the Chinese calendar this New Year will be a year of a Snake. How exciting! 



I do hope that this wise snake will make everyone's year better and more exciting! 

As for me it will be an interesting one... Full of adventure hopefully and new beginnings! 

As for 2012...it was an interesting year. 

I found new job... decided what I want to do... lost some weight and gain some muscles... crochet a baby blanket with tassels.... became better at cooking... 

2012 was also the 1st year of marriage... 


Nothing new there... I mean the marriage doesn't change anything much... well now Steve calls me wife. 

I have met some awesome people!


And am actually super sad to leave them in Cardiff... 

and the old friends.... 
Me b@%ches! I am already missing you greatly!




For 2013 I hope for happiness and less stress then 2012... 
I guess I will not be thinking about our big move next Monday...

Happy New Year to you all! 
May 2013 be the best year yet! 


Lots of love

My Addiction... TV Series...

So I had these 5 days off for my birthday... Oh it was so lovely! 

I went to see Hobbit twice, by the way it is much better in 2D....  I also saw Rise of the Guardians... very nice... so I though "I shall find something else to watch"... It was actually Hobbit related well dwarf from Hobbit and major men candy Aidan Turner.

So for the past few days I have been watching Being Human... and today I am up-to-date!


BBC people do the great series... if you don't agree, check this list out! 
Coupling, Black Books, Dr. Who, Life on Mars, Spooks, Sherlock, Pride and Prejudiced .. even Eastenders... Now last one been on the screens for decades now! 
And what great writers, actors too.. Also.... Men Candy Alert!
Jack Davenport, Dylan Moran, Colin Firth, Matthew Macfayden, David Tennant, Jack Barrowman, Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch and of course Russel Tovey and Aidan Truner... 

So I sat down and I actually found it hard to move from the sofa for few days... All I wanted to do is to watch being human...
I am always a fan of a good vampire, werewolf and ghost story... Like True Blood or Buffy.

The dialogue is so beautifully written, everything is very touching, complex and just amazing language, the plot is great too...(well at some point it got a bit too much... read on)...  The characters feelings and emotions are so touching... you just really feel for all of them... Everything on the edge and  highly emotional. And it has been filmed very close to home in Bristol and Barry Island!

Yes, languege is amazing... I am still thinking about this and have to say it is well written. All about how we all re humans and monsters at the same time

So where I was watching the end of season 3... Oh My God! Such a great ending... so sad! Yet happy... 


and then there were new characters... But I stuck with it and what a pleasant surprise, it got better! I am very much looking forward to New Year and new series of Being Human... Actually I think of James one of the bar staff at the "office" is very much like Hal.

I am toying with idea of giving the American version at the moment... Unless some one can recommend something else...
Talking about the ending of being human season 3... We were at the pub couple of years back that is and some random dude was telling me how "omg I cannot believe this happened on being human, I am so devastated" needed a hug... I felt the need for a hug after ending of season 3 and season 4

23 again!

Nobody think I'm 27, even I don't think I'm 27.... And I am being asked for an ID all the time, so logical thing was to tell everyone that I am 23...

At this moment I am feeling more like 127... but it will pass...

We went to Bill's restaurant with hubby. It was lovely... service style is a bit strange but maybe they haven't quiet got this yet... Table wasn't great but I guess one day I will learn to book a table for my birthday!


This amaretto sour was soo good! So I had two:)
We skipped the starter to save space for dessert. I had great mussels and fries. Lovely sauce with skinny fries on the side... dream!
Hubby had some very good looking lamb stew. These dumplings were too good to pass on but yet, I didn't fancy them, might have to go again!


Now this is a massive pumpkin cream brulee. Not quiet what I expected, thought it might be with some warm spices in it... Like pumpkin pie... but not quiet. I think there is some space to improve... 
In the evening we had friend over, played board games and drunk some... well mainly me and Dickie and Owen... Viera been attending Christmas parties all week long and Dessy and Mike had to dash to another do and they had to get up really early since Dessy had to be at work 1st thing in the morning!

I got some great presents, including a book on preparing to half or full marathon! Thank you Viera, I might even give it a try and hubby is taking me to Paris... OMG! I'M FINALLY GOING TO SEE PARIS!
Don't know when yet... lots to do before that...
Oh and this...


Now I smell like flower explosion! 

Thank you everyone who wished me happy birthday! This made my day extra special! 
Internet is great! I got wished from all over the world! 
Love you all guys! xx

Some of these dwarfs are too hot to be dwarfs! Hobbit

This is what I said to Owen after watching The Hobbit...

We both were very excited about this film coming out... How can you not be when from every single magazine cover there is Martin Freeman just staring at you with his hobbit ears?!


and he was from Office.... and now he is internationally recognizable!

I actually never been to the cinema on the opening  night... 
Opening night at Cineworld was a bit different where was a dude who gave a speech and even sang the song. He seemed very excited about the whole thing:) 
I haven't actually read The Hobbit an unexpected journey... I did start reading it once, but some how it just didn't go. And surly I did not read the lord of the rings... Too much walking around really!
But I do appreciate it... amazing fantasy work, the whole language was invented... And Peter Jackson did an amazing work.... 
Also according to this film the dwarfs are either Irish or Scottish...My favorite accents! Even if one of them is actually from NZ and did not have many lines for reason of a strong New Zealand accent... 
It is actually my favorite type of film... with mud, strong characters, adventure and sword fighting! 
And men candy! Lots of it!

However... 
The heroic young price dwarf is actually Richard Armitage... that was a bit disappointing... 


Well he is a beautiful man, but his facial features are just too prefect in way... and so uninteresting! However this .... 

is so much more exciting...
But maybe I think that because I love me a man with beard...
Hope is not lost on the men candy aspct of the film... 
There are Martin Freeman (who is super brilliant)Ian McKellen (who is a dude!!), John Nesbitt (his hat was just too funny!) and Aidan Turner.... hmmmm! 


I do like men hairy with beards!:) 

But all the funny and silly men candy to the side it was a very entertaining film! I will be watching it again and again!
And I will highly recommend it... 
Got to say however....
I do not think 3D is a future... If it is a cartoon, then yeah 3D is cool... but some of the scenes of the film just were too blurry. Monday is Hobbit day again... Taking husband too:)
Some moment were very funny... well Hobbit was supposed to be a kids book after all... 
Another technological development...Orcs do not look as scary as they used to... but special effects are so visually stunning... But I'd still prefer the usual two dimensions for my bearded men candy!


And once again! GO to the cinema watch Hobbit it is brilliant!!

things I love at this moment...

I know some might think its all hippy shit... well I know husband will. But I'm a real Sagittarius!.... I'm ever changing... also it's hard to be a December baby... FIY my cake day is this Sunday (16th December)..

At the moment I love Bush in my headphones....


I think I really started to enjoy bush since seeing them live in Mancherster in Academy.. when I was blown away...




Ripped over sized clothes with Dr. Martins on my very small feet... (only certain models fit and I don't fall out of them)



Dark and sad films....

Dark like Flat-liners


and sad like Painted Veil...



I think I just need an occasion  to cry... it releasing the tension! One must have a reason to cry..like a sad film.... otherwise it' not fun!

.... and I'm hoping to have a fantastic birthday celebrations... nothing fancy,just food, drinks, board games and people that matter! 
and Moonrise Kingdom DVD :) hint people!!

Beautiful Bath

It is super exciting to be moving to Bath... its a super pretty place...



But then again it's super scary... leaving the life of 7 years behind... 
friends...
I don't know where anything is... I know that there is no Cineworld or PureGym...
So any advice about where to shop where to go and what to do will be highly appreciated!!

We found the flat, big move is on the 7th of January! 
Super stressful...Oh and new job! Will need to remember everyone's names... again! 
 but I'm actually looking froward to work with Sarah and Jon again...
