Plastic hearts, Sleepovers and Cucumbers

Long post alert! This is going to be a long picture studded post. Since I am very much behind with my Pearly Delights posts, I am posting pictures covering a period of two weeks.

This view often catches my eye when I am at work.I just love watching people getting by doing their business. Sometimes I watch the traffic on the round about in the background. On a busy day, I hardly get the time to just stare and dream but when I do, I make the best of it.

I have always been fascinated by butterflies. How they are transformed from being an ordinary looking caterpillar to being to this amazingly beautiful creature, one of God's amazing creations. I loved how the author of this quote summarized her view of a butterfly.

I went to watch a play of the The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. It was brilliant. The acting from the children was impressive and I could not help but notice the proud faces of parents. The set up was amazing and I wanted to take some pictures but that was not allowed so I had to make do with taking a picture of the programme.

I am making a bit of progress on those cooking skills. Look at that, I even managed to throw in some veggies. I am so bad at eating vegetables, I just do not like most of them but I love fruits, at least.

No, that heart there is not my handiwork. After going for a mini shopping I found that nicely cut heart in one of my shopping bags. Maybe one of the shop assistants got bored and cut out some hearts from one of the bags and one of the hearts ended up in the bag with my shopping. Whatever could have happened I choose to believe this was message to me from God reminding me that He loves me.

What more can I say. I felt like this was a reinforcement of the message I got from the plstic heart the previous day. Oh how He loves us!

What a laugh I had when I saw this poster. The person who made this poster sure has an imagination. I guess some people do need to be reminded to be responsible citizens otherwise they simply won't bother.

Someone is artistic in the house I live. We have a big board in the kitchen were we can write important messages for everyone's attention. Someone put up this, nice!

A sleep over! I love sleep overs. Good friends of mine invited me to sleep over at their house on the eve of my birthday. They said it wouldn't do for me to wake up alone on my birthday without anyone there to say happy birthday first thing in the morning. Aaawwwwww.

The big day and here is the cake. It was a delicious cake baked by my friend Ruth. I am grateful to all my friends who took time out to make the day extra special.

Some of the presents from my birthday. Those chocolates uuuhmmm yummmy thanks Lizzie, I will think about dieting and stuff like that later.

I got this funny birthday card from my friend Cherie. It made me laugh. I wonder if this is what I will be saying when I am way way older. I am going to be 28 -ish for as long as I say so ha!

This picture was taken in one of the Prets in London (yeah went over to London for a visit),  which one of my favorite cafes. One of my closest friends works there and I was waiting for her to finish work. Have you ever tasted their sandwiches my my they are some of the best on the market.

On the train on my way home from London. I woke up so early so that I could be at work on time. You should have seen my puffy eyes, it would have been a good time to find out if cucumbers work for puffy eyes :)
