Spider Attack

This weekend has been pretty good! I caught up with a couple of people I haven't seen in far too long, which was lovely. On Saturday night I went out with some friends and wore this dress I picked up in TK Maxx on Thursday. I think the print has sort of a hippyish vibe and I haven't worn lilac since I was about ten so it was fun to wear. I was designated driver (this always happens because basically I'm the only one who can actually drive), yet still managed to get up and dance on a table with everyone else - how embarrassing.

On the way home, something terrible happened. I was driving along at about 3am when I saw something move on the dash board - it was a spider roughly the size of a small dog (Exaggerate? Moi?). I pulled over before I started properly freaking out and was stood at the side of the road in the middle of nowhere with all the doors open begging the spider to leave. Someone even stopped to see what the problem was - I felt pretty stupid telling him it was just a spider that was stopping me from driving. Anyway, I couldn't find it so I just had to get back in and speed the rest of the way home. Since then I've been driving with the windows open or the roof down hoping that it will blow out. *Shudders*.

I also saw Miss Lauren McBride the other day in Liverpool and we stopped for a quick chat. She has the cutest bike ever and is very smiley! Why is it though that you always bump into people when you look a state? I was melting in the heat which is never a good look. Over here warnings have been issued about the 'heat' with one woman saying we should help people who are slower than us to get into the shade. My mum and I cracked up laughing at her. Other countries can cope with extreme weather, but here in the UK, a snowflake, a few too many raindrops or rays of sun cause absolute chaos. It's ridiculous.

I am just rambling on now because I am seriously tired so I should just quit whilst I'm ahead and go to sleep. Good night!

  4. How's this for creepy? The other night I noticed a spider on the ceiling right above my bed, and when I tried to smash it with a broom it fell on my pillow, where I quickly smeared it all over my pillow case. I'm still shaking from that one.

    And what a lovely dress! Pastels usually aren't my thing, but the print of this dress is so interesting that it balances the sweetness of the color palette perfectly.
