    It’s really weird trying to explain the differences between Catholicism and other branches of Christianity to people who aren’t religious because it ultimately ends up, “Well this is Catholic, this is Catholic classic, this is Catholic-lite, this is diet Catholic, this is new taste less calories not as popular Catholic, and this is I can’t believe it’s not Catholic.”

    • me: whats your opinion on tampons
    • little brother: they're little fuzzy sticks on strings
    • me: then you are ultimately more mature than most boys

  • Ladies who lunch.

    Had a nice day with my grandma :’)
    Went for a national trust lunch at Tyntesfield (by she volunteers there and gets a discount).
    Then traipsed around a local graveyard looking for some people she had read about.
    Then did a Waitrose shop and had drinks there.
    Followed by unloading the shopping at home and seeing my granddad.

    Going to miss them :’(

    You know when you use a biro and you get ink on your hand from where it’s leaked a bit…well I didn’t realise and just touched my new phone case which I’ve had a day and now it’s covered in biro. CRY.

    That’s why I always use proper fountain pens.

    Every year in September, I post my top 10 outfits according to tumblr notes (here are the 2013 and 2012 posts). This year, only last year’s number one stayed, but it dropped to the tenth position. My observation is that you guys seem to prefer darker coloured simpler outfits!
