Moving on...

Have become quite frustrated with blogger of late, and so I'm 'shutting up shop' here and moving to pastures new. Come and visit me at shumasays for random my posts ;)

Another year, another birthday

…and another city visited….spent a very sedate and cultured weekend in Berlin. Is it not funny that you can meet a person very randomly or through mutual friends; and than agree to meet in a random city not knowing whether you will actually get on with them without the other friends being around and find you have so much common. Human behaviour never seems to stop amazing me. I’ll be posting photos from my trip soon, for now enjoy this photo of a slice of my favourite cheesecake in the world ;)

music monday...oops

I've been going to the gym religiously recently, and so came home last night; and warmed up dinner, watched Glee and then went straight to bed and forgot to post my music monday recommendation - oops.

My music choice for this week is by a band called Horse In the Sea (who I came across by chance - i know it happens frequently to me) and really like their song Can't talk to girls. You can hear the song at http://horseinthesea.bandcamp.com/track/cant-talk-to-girls

Have a good week.
