When I woke up....

Ahoy!! Happy Monday!! I hope the weekend was super :) Mine was movies, books and children's playtime!! I woke up this morning with a zillion things running around in my head, not the normal things most people think on, like what they have to do today and so on. But, things that really made no sense once I put them all together...I'll give you a run down.....

I had this image in my head, from the artist I talked about in this post and how I'd really love to be the one in the picture:

I had this song playing in the background, because you know...Wild Boys always shine.. ;)

I was thinking about when I read this book...read it if you haven't, but don't see the movie, it will ruin it for you, because the book as usual laughs in the face of the movie! Burroughs is awesome!

I was thinking about these socks and tights I have yet to wear and what I might wear them with..still no clue, but there you go! Just love them though :)

{top tights, bought at River Island & bottom socks bought in TKMaxx}

I was also thinking after watching the movie 'Tangled' lastnight with my husband & daughters, we want to get a Chameleon and I want to name him 'Karma' lol! To go with our 6 leopard geckos we already have :) Funny movie, my daughter was still talking about it this morning before school!

I also thought of the Phrenology head I have & how I searched high and low for one, no idea why, I just wanted one. I like to buy strange things (well strange to others, normal to me) and learn about them, but I have yet to get a book on Phrenology, have just read about it on websites. But, my vintage hat does look rather dandy on him!!

I also thought of this painting that I love, not sure why. But, I just love the blue colours and the mood created & how I feel when I look at it, just brings a sense of calmness to me.

The Lamentations of a Poet

I thought of all these things and just as I was drifting back to sleep, the alarm went off and my best thought was time to get up and feed my lil' beauty Noémie (1 month old now) while her big sister gets dressed for school.

So there you are, my morning thoughts, random as they come! I almost forgot it was Monday today, felt like Sunday...now I have the Bangles playing in my head (Manic Monday)...ahh it never ends! I do hope everyone has a great day & the sun shines for you wherever you may be!!

  17. Thank you sweeties!! Hope all is well!!

  18. Great post! Really sharing your morning thoughts for real! I, too, have music playing along sometimes...usually favorites of course. Music is emotional. The choice of song usually dictates whats inside.........therefore, I believe you were having a very pleasant and energetic morning for a busy mom!
