Working Weekend.

So today was quite a busy one. Working in retail, you expect the chaos on weekends. I prepared myself with a grande americano. While standing in the queue I noticed the "Pick Of The Week" cards on the counter. I think whoever is picking these books and songs must have the same taste because they always catch my eye. Disney. Emeli Sande. Today, it's a song by She & Him, called Why Do You Let Me Stay Here. It's Zooey Deschanel (squeel! my fave!) and her music partner M. Ward. I've enjoyed their albums all the while thinking nobody else cared about them! Obviously somebody does. Go on, give 'em a search on the old Youtube whatchamajig.


My beautiful Shannon left work today, I know two in a week! I'm mortified, as Shannon and I started work together in the same week back in 2008. We're off out for a night on the tiles next weekend but before the fun begins we had an emotional moment as we said goodbye in work for the last time. I bought her a stunning red velvet cupcake from a gorgeous little 'cupcakery' in Cardiff, it's called Sugarswirlz and you can find it near New Look and Millie's Cookie's in Queen's Arcade (here's a link to their website). They're a little pricey for an everyday treat, but a present for a friend for £2.20 isn't that much. No expense spared for my amazing Shamalam. She's reported back that it was incredible cake! I'm so sad she's left, she always cheered me up. xoxo

  2. I adore She & Him, especially their Christmas album - am I the only person in the world who has Christmas songs on during my early morning commute?
    The cupcakery provides a stunning array of cakes that actually are more art than food. I'm glad I had someone to buy one for as I am on a diet where low fat cream cheese is the naughtiest it gets.
    Thank you for reading, Kate! :)

  3. Awh thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog! It is nice to know people actually READ what I have to write. Shame you couldn't enter the Next competition and your so lucky to work for them with the employee discount! I work in a supermarket on the weekends. BLAH. And Next didn't use to be my cup of tea but I'm really impressed with their items at the moment! And the She & Him download! I got mine in Starbucks the other day. I love Zoeey Deschanel and her sexy husky voice! And who can resist a lovely cupcake?

  4. Awh thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog! Yours is great too! Nice to hear that people enjoy what I write for a change! And your so lucky to work for Next with all that employee discount! I never used to like Next that much a couple of years ago but their range and versatility of clothes lately has impressed me...it actually appeals to young girls too! Shame you can't enter the competition! And the She & Him download, I got mine from Starbucks the other day too! Love Zoeey Deschanel and her sexy husky voice! And of course, who can go wrong with a little cupcake?
