We're gonna live it up, I promise, just hold on a little more!

This title is a lyric from Friendly Fires' great song about my favourite city- Paris!

I've been up and down lately, fighting the bank to make a payment so I can get Pumpkin Peach stock (I'm moving my account as soon as this payment is processed as to take a month to make a CHAPS payment is disgusting!) and was very close to getting a good job, which I eventually didn't get.

I'm not sad, even though it's been a tough time for us in general. Instead of focusing on the bad things, I choose to focus on the positive things. I'm getting a pair of new glasses and planning our holiday for this year. We're still undecided, however I'd prefer Skiathos, a Greek island.

I'll revamp my CV and enjoy the company of my friends, whom I don't see as often as I'd like as they're all scattered around the world!

Wishing you a great week ahead, I leave you with my new fad (apart fromVictorian Lemonade, of course LOL):

If life gives you lemons...

Trade them in for some of that nice Fentimans' Victorian Lemonade I've been going on about :)

My best friend from childhood has posted on her blog a series of oracle style questions and I'm going to oblige:

If I were a month of the year, I'd be.... July, because it's so nice and warm! I'm always complaining that I'm cold. Somebody said I should live in Brazil!

If I were a day of the week, I'd be.... Saturday! It's great when I wake up on a Saturday morning and know I've got two days all to myself!

If I were a part of the day, I'd be... Mid-Morning! That's when I feel most alert.

If I were a marine creature, I'd be... one of those fish that clean sharks' teeth without being eaten!

If I were a direction, I'd be... Right. I'm right handed, so it seems natural.

If I were a virtue, I'd be.... Friendliness. I love to have friends and I'm a very loyal friend.

If I were a historical character, I'd be... Josephine Bonaparte. I like the good life!

If I were a planet, I'd be... a planet not from this solar system, but somewhere faaaaaar away.

If I were a liquid, I'd be.... pomegranate juice! All nice and sweet but good for your health!

If I were a type of rock, I'd be... Uluru in Australia! It sure stands out.

If I were a bird, I'd be... a Dodo, just so I can say they're not extinct!

If I were a plant, I'd be... a David Austin Rose! Pretentious but ravishing!

If I were a type of weather, I'd be... sunny and scorching hot! See above.

If I were a musical instrument, I'd be... quite clearly an electric guitar! I've missed my vocation!

If I were an emotion, I'd be... gurgling with delight!

If I were a sound, I'd be... the sound of wind thorough a willow tree.

If I were an element, I'd be... air. Just because it might be warmer!

If I were a song, I'd be... "Atmosphere" by Joy Division.

If I were a film, I'd be... "Amelie". God, I love that film! It's about my favourite things in life: Paris, love and doing good!

If I were a TV Series, I'd be... Little Britain! I find it very funny.

If I were a book, I'd be... "Words in a French Life" by fellow blogger Kristin Espinasse.

If I were a fictional character, I'd be... Felix Krull from " Confessions of Felix Krull", an unfinished novel by Thomas Mann. We're both ruthless LOL

If I were a type of food, I'd be... a fancy main course from a Michelin starred restaurant.

If I were a taste, I'd be... the taste of Morelli ice cream! All creamy texture, no matter what flavour!

If I were an aroma, I'd be... sandalwood!

If I were a colour, I'd be...turquoise. It's my favourite colour!

If I were a fabric, I'd be... fairtrade cotton.

If I were a word, I'd be... Now.

If I were a body part, I'd be... the hands. You can't do anything without your hands.

If I were a facial expression, I'd be... a smile.

If I were a school subject, I'd be... Literature.

If I were a cartoon character, I'd be... Licia, from "Kiss me, Licia" or "Aishite Knight"

If I were a shape, I'd be... the hourglass! :)

If I were a number, I'd be... 25. That's how old I'll be this year!

If I were a car, I'd be... an old Fiat 500! Those things are tiiiiiiiny!

If I were a garment, I'd be... a pair of indigo skinny jeans! You don't see me out of them.

I hope you've enjoyed this long set of questions and answers and are more than welcome to do it yourselves!!!
