I was pretty disappointed to learn that my home broadband isn't going to be installed for "up to" three more weeks so I popped down to my local o2 store and picked up one of these little gadgets. It just so happened to be on special offer (buy 30 days internet access and get another 30 days free) which was a nice bonus! So far, so good. I like that there is no contract and I can use it on-the-go instead of relying on my iPhone's browser.

I purchased this dress a couple of months ago when I went shopping with my friend in Dublin. I hadn't worn it because the buttons on the front are slightly loose and I planned to sew them (which I have yet to do) but today I decided it had been sitting around, un-loved, for too long. Its quite figure hugging and side-ways I think I almost look pregnant thanks to my awkward belly, but its the perfect shade of pink and the little ruffles on the hips sold it for me. I know most girls prefer to wear clothes that "glide over" their problem areas but I can't resist a nice bodycon dress. Our weather has been beautiful this week and perfect for dresses without tights!
My new room is still a mess for the most part. I put some of my things away but didn't unpack everything as we had a little problem. A few days after moving in we noticed there were a lot of woodlice crawling around the house, every time I went into my room I would find a couple crawling around. I didn't mind at first as I thought they would disappear but I was wrong. I tried spraying the floors with insect killer, which seemed to stun them for a couple of seconds rather than kill them. Then I used an insect killer in powder form and it worked a treat - but there was still a LOT of them crawling around the house. One morning I woke up to 28 dead woodlice on my tiny bedroom floor! They aren't harmful but they're unpleasant to look at. I'm a complete baby when it comes to insects and other creepy crawlies! In the end we had Rentokil come and spray both inside and outside of the house which has sorted the problem. The house had been locked up for quite a while (6 months) and the previous tenants never heated the house in the two years they lived here, hence the large amount of woodlice.
Speaking of the previous tenants..I hope this house doesn't turn out to have strange things happening like my old one! There's a tiny room at the back of the house which has an odd history. The walls are white but they have burn marks where candles had been lit close to them often and there's a medal above the door (which I later found out is used in exorcisms!). I was in there with my landlord and he told me how the previous tenants used it as some kind of worship room. They had an alter from a church in there too although i'm guessing they weren't practicing a Christian religion as the town church is nearby and visible from the back garden. When they lived here they operated a little video store in my town and I remember having a conversation with one guy about Kevin Smith movies. He seemed nice for the most part so i'll just try to think about him in that way, rather than worshipping..whatever.
