Week in Photos

Haven't done one of these for a while, just a few photos of uninteresting things, and food.
- Before heading to Wales a few weeks ago, we met our friend Alex's new kitten; Tigerlily. She's so cute and mischevious, we tried to take her to the cottage but she hid under the sofa^_^
- Myself and Luke playing on Kev's Mac. The rollercoaster Photobooth option's so fun :')
- If I can add cheese onto food at any point, I will.
- The perfect accompaniment to a rainy afternoon.
- Hope with Heather's dog, Ozzy, one of the rare moment he stays still.
- As above, I love cheese. This is my favourite comfort food - pasta, ketchup and cheese, nom.
- It was Jack's 21st a few weeks ago and his dad's friend's a photographer, so he got the oblig. cheesy group and couple shots. I really like this one though, so have it :)

Later tonight I'm going with Jack to see The Inbetweeners movie, loking forward to it so I hope this rain goes off :(
Has anyone seen the movie yet?

#106 - Riots

I'm sure you've all heard about the awful riots that took place yesterday and early this morning in London, which started out as a mere peaceful protest that got out of control and even caused riots in Birmingham, Bristol and Liverpool.
I don't understand how people can just do things like this and think it's a good way to behave, it's disgusting.

London bus set alight

It started in Liverpool at around 11 last night, near Smithdown Road and slowly made its way through the city centre, smashing in windows, setting cars on fire, anything they could think of.
Places like the Tesco on Park Lane and Baa Bar on Myrtle St were still open at this point but the staff couldn't leave and any customers were pretty much sitting ducks, waiting until it was safe. People shouldn't have to live lke this, it's appalling.

Gangs gathering together in Liverpool

My boyfriend and his friend's actually walked down Smithdown Road literally minutes before the violence kicked off. I felt sick to my stomach until he text me to say they were all safe. Yesterday was his 21st as well, just the luck hey.

People's cars were being burned and bricks thrown through house windows, and all they could do was stand by their windows watching it all and sending out photos to show people what was happening.

There are community clean ups happening all day I presume, to try and put some kind of order back into the cities. These are the kind of people who started the peaceful protest in London, not wanting to harm anyone or do anything but get their voices heard, and sadly it was ripped apart by mindless "people" who just wanted to do as much destruction as they could, despite their rioting having no real meaning behind it.
It's disgusting to think that we live in a world where this can happen so easily and spread throughout the country so fast.

I hope that everyone in the affected areas is doing ok and that nobody's seriously injured. I'm still unsure on what exactly got burnt and smashed up in Liverpool, it's hard to tell fact from rumour at half 3 in the morning.
This needs to be dealt with soon, it can't happen again, there'll be nothing left at this rate.

Align Centre
Hey guys, just a quick post on my lazy Saturday afternoon, nothing too fancy just making sure I keep blogging regularly so it becomes a good habit rather than something I feel I have to do even when I don't know what to write about :)

My Graze box arrived today, I'm really excited to try out the two on the left as they are new to me. (Is it sad to be excited by fruit and nuts?!) The two on the right are what I call old faithfuls, I've had them in about three boxes and I always click the "Send Soon" button when rating what I would like to recieve. Also I can guarantee about three of these boxes will be empty by the time I leave to go to Jack's this evening haha.

If you haven't yet tried a Graze box, use the code C3MVH3H to get your first box free and your second half price :)

I'm spending this afternoon catching up on WWE Raw and Smackdown, yep life-long wrestling fan here! Need to finish reading the two books I have on the go right now, can I add two of the best books I've read this year so far.
Fear and Loathing was made into a movie with Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro in '98, brilliant movie which keeps to the book as much as possible, something I always appreciate when books are adapted into movies. Also, the illustrations in the book are so surreal, drawn by Ralph Steadman who is from Wallasey which is just over the Mersey from Liverpool. His drawings can really mess with your mind in terms of what you think you see and what is actually there.
Everville is my favourite Clive Barker book, I've only read a handful of his books, but he's a fantastic writer whose work would be a great addition to your bookshelf!

How do you usually spend your Saturdays? :)
