30 kermit the frogs

Friday marked our school's annual birthday, this year being its 131st. It is arguably the one day of the year where we are allowed to 'let loose' a little, which is a slight understatement. Rather deafening chanting in the corridors, warrior striped cheeks and dance competitions summarise the day, not forgetting the finale at the end, where the 4 school houses compete to win the much sought after 'Belitha Cup'. This year, my house, Watson, sadly did not win for what would have been the 3rd year in a row, but we came in a close 2nd. And you know what they say, 1st the worst, 2nd the best...
Before I shower you in green images, I will explain why my friends and I resemble Kermit the Frog; each house has a colour - either blue, green, red or yellow, and Watson's colour is green. Here are some snaps from throughout the day (not the best quality but they're just to give you a general feel of the atmosphere!)

Hope you're all having an excellent half term if you're English, if not then I hope you're just generally having a nice week!
P.S Jessie J is fast becoming a guilty pleasure of mine, 'Price Tag' is adorable! Thoughts on her?

Greetings loved ones,
Sorry for the absence of blogging, I have had a dismally large pile of schoolwork that managed to engulf and almost drown me, so I have been slowly getting through that, and haven't been allowing myself much leisurely time. 
Now, for those musical fanatics among you, you will have noticed that the title to this post is indeed a reference to the much adored musical, play and movie, My Fair Lady. This half term, we started studying the play "Pygmalion" in class, which I later found out is the basis of My Fair Lady. I have never been much of a musical fan, but I found myself utterly engrossed in this comedic and empathic story line. I have also developed a girl crush on Audrey Hepburn, and I must shamefully admit that this is the first movie I have seen of hers - she has instantly converted me to Hepburnism. Oh and she was absolutely beautiful!


Now, on to another exciting topic; it was my birthday last Thursday! I was initially planning to do a birthday post and explain the events of my amazing day, but due to the aforementioned homework, it was a no-no. So I will give a brief interlude:
I received the most amazing and longly sought after presents, including a certain BlackBerry Curve 8520! ♥
 Much to my dismay, Parents Evening just happened to fall on the evening of my birthday, so instead of celebrating, I had to sit through an hour and a half of coffee-breathed teachers explaining to my parents that I talk 'an unnatural amount'.
However the next day,  I went out shopping and for a birthday meal to Finesse, a Chinese buffet restaurant, with a group of friends which was lovely and worth the wait!

 Aah, that American Apparel tee shirt was one of my beautiful presents, after a gruelling 18 months of lusting after it! :D

 Sorry for the awful picture quality, both images were taken on phones.

I hope you are all having a delightful weekend!

P.S. My face, as posed and unnatural as it looks in the dungarees image, was in fact very natural! I cannot remember what I the joke was, but my friend Naomi made me laugh just before it was taken and bam, I came out looking like a panda. Just saying.
