#44 Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit

"Why, " the man in the brown hat laughed at him, "I thought everybody knew 'Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit.' If you say 'Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit' - three times, just like that - first thing in the morning on the first of the month, even before you say your prayers, you'll get a present before the end of the month."

How can it possibly be the first of March already! This year is flying by so fast it's hard to believe! It's been a mixed bag today, highlights included: Reading plenty of my new book, Twenties Girl, by Sophie Kinsella, and enjoying it, enjoying mini Easter eggs and cooking with my friend Lauren, watching CSI:NY (always a highlight) and perusing travel brochures. 

I think any downsides are very insignificant today, after reading that PC David Rathband committed suicide this morning when I woke up I felt so incredibly sad for him and his family. His life was ruined in so many aspects when he was shot, and it goes without saying that I strongly feel if the man who shot him was still alive now he should be charged with his murder. You know I still get so angry inside when I remember that all happening and all those absolute morons calling him a 'hero' - what kind of society do we live in when people cheer on that, call some horrible man shooting people a hero? And don't even get me started on when it was his funeral and that imbecile woman turned up at his funeral with her kids, was actually lost for words when I saw that. 

Am looking forward to catching up on a lot of blog posts this weekend as well as doing a few of my own! 

and, because I am not a fan of posts without pictures, heres one of my favourites on my computer, I may have posted it before, I can't remember: every few weeks, or months, when I start to wonder what I'm exactly doing with my life, what I'm exactly saving for and what I actually want to do, I start wanting to travel, and I love this picture, it makes me want to get myself in gear. I really need to make plans instead of losing my thoughts in the mundane tasks of every day life ...



  1. Twenties Girl is fantastic isn't it? One of my favourite Sophie Kinsella books. I laughed my head off in places but there's also some sad bits. I wish they'd make it into a film, I think it'd translate really well on screen.

    I'm with you on the sad news about PC David Rathband, such a tragedy.

    I need to get myself in gear too. Maybe 2012 is the year we both do it! Hope you're well Carla x

  2. I read Twenties Girl its probably my favourite book ever. It made me laugh and cry so much.

    I agree re PC Rathband such an inspiration and feel so sorry for his family.
