Gratitude

I’m honestly quite surprised that this month’s bujo is proving more popular, so my Instagram follower count has been increasing very quickly. 4K followers! I thought people wouldn’t like the slight change in style, but I’ve always been bad at predicting what people like anyway! Regardless, Im so very grateful for this blessing and am very thankful to everyone who likes my amateurish art!

The Undecided Couple

I’m calling us The Undecided Couple from now on. We had to toss a coin to decide dinner tonight. And 4 years ago we had to toss a coin to decide whether to have a wedding ceremony!

Evil Forces

Evil forces are stopping me form watching Harry Potter! Our new 4K TV arrived today. After waiting 18 days, then 4 days (ref. Oct 5) to watch the movie, I could have, today, except when I went to iTunes Store, the complete collection isn’t there anymore! It was still there an hour before!

Now, only single movies are available at £10 instead of £40 for 8! I sent Apple an email but in the meantime, more waiting!

Did a 65-minute walk today despite being very cold and tired!

Good Forces

It wasn’t evil forces after all! It was a blessing in disguise! The Harry Potter complete collection came back to the iTunes Store £10 cheaper than before! I mean it’s a small amount but waiting for a total of 23 days for that saving seems worth it, lol. Now I’ve got all the 8 Harry Potter movies in 4K with extras for £30!

Artistic TV

I love our new Samsung Frame TV! It turns into a piece of art when the TV is off. There’s all kinds of styles of art to choose from and we can keep changing it. Only problem is Piers and I have very different tastes in art so I expect I’ll have to change it more often than I like!

Gratitude

I’m grateful for all the silver linings and blessings in disguise I’ve encountered in my life. As much as I love ranting and as much as I fall into depression, I do deep down believe that things kind of work out eventually and happy things do happen. and when they do, feel very grateful because gratitude enhances happiness.

Migrating Swans

Big noisy swans have been flying past our house quite a lot this month. I wonder where they’re going. I wish they’d stop here!

The Long Wait

It’s taken me 18 days to finish listening to Harry Potter book 1. I tend to have to rewind a lot because my mind often drifts away. It’s like I have audial ADHD.

I’d been dying to watch the movie but wanted to finish the book first and now I have! As I sat deciding whether to get the movie on iTunes or Prime, I noticed that iTunes has it on 4K, which reminded me that Piers just bought a 4K TV but it won’t arrive until Tuesday! That’s 4 more whole days I’d have to wait if I want to watch it on 4K! Sigh.

Mad Weather

I love the weather in England! One day I’m wearing 3 layers to bed and the next day Piers is sunburnt!

Dark Quest/Gratitude

I’m grateful for chocolate! I’m still bummed about having to give up milk chocolate but I’m learning to like dark chocolate.

I have a new mission! I’m going to try all the different brands to find the best! It has to be at least 70% cocoa, which I think is tastier, anyway. How fun it will be!

Netflix and walk isn’t working out for me. Holding my phone up at eye level while walking (to protect my neck) is causing back and shoulder strain. Luckily, I have a new Audible credit today!

After deliberating for a month, I’ve decided to give Harry Potter a go because Stephen Fry! I adore the man’s accent. Plus it seems like almost everyone in the bujo community are HP fans and I am feeling left out.

I read the first four books like 18 years ago (OMG) and also watched the first few movies. The books were a gift and I enjoyed them enough. Just not enough to feel compelled to continue with new releases.

But my BeatsX earphones have been broken for many days now. I can’t use my wired ones because stupid iPhone 8+ doesn’t have a jack. My Beats Solo3 is out of juice. I have audio devices galore but I can’t use any!

I am so pleased with my decision. Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter is better than I imagined. He makes dialogue funnier and just brings the whole thing to life. I might even give Sherlock Holmes a try after I finish the HP series!

I love going for walks again now!
