Today has just started for me really woke up not long ago so I'm gonna mostly focus on what I'm grateful for about yesterday. Although today it is a lovely sunny day. :-)
and it is still the weekend.
For yesterday, I slept in a little bit and relaxed and listened to uplifting stuff while I gamed :-)
In the mid afternoon, i met up with a girl from a friendship ap to go to this place called LOL "The Selfie Factory". The backdrops were cool, funky and fun and we had some laughs seeing what was next. Got a few photos that I felt I could share on my social media so later I did and I got a few likes and a compliment. OH! how could I forget? I got a free bra today LOL gorgeous colours and I got a mascara free and free socks! Just plain black socks but that's perfect for wearing under leggings for e.g. about 5 pairs and I was wanting socks for when it gets colder! ALSO! The mascara and socks came all the way from America! But it was so lucky, I went out to buy lunch and thought, shall I lock the front door or not? We have a sort of porch? Indoor area between the outside door and the door that goes to the flat.
I thought, when I was going out for lunch, shall I lock the outside door or no, because the inside door is locked anyway. But I decided NOT to because I wasn't going to be long.
WELL! When I got back, the parcel from America was there on the porch, the bit in between the outside and inside door!
I don't know WHAT would have happened if the outside door had been locked! I guess they'd try another day surely it wouldn't go all the way back to the States? But having come from all that way, I'm so SO glad they could just leave it there for me and I got it safely! I think the bra arrived just before.
Nice lunch. Maybe I take that local cafe for granted sometimes but they have nice and reasonably priced food! And lovely dinner too.

Massive storm clouds and brilliant sunshine together over the sea!
