Mad Hatter's Tea for Two

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see? "
-Alice in Wonderland.

So it's my beautiful momma's birthday today, so we went out for a lovely afternoon tea to Tigerlily in town. It's an understatement to say that I've been looking forward to it for ages. Even just getting properly dressed, done up and going out is so nice. Makes such a difference to how I feel, I seem to be wasting my life away in pyjamas and comfies! I also went into school yesterday. Wow. I mean, only for lunch and an hour of maths, but still. The awkward looks and stares whilst people seem to have forgotten you ever existed or just look at you as if you're an alien. The teachers were even worse than the girls with the stares, as I walked down the MES catwalk-isle of the lunch hall (avoiding any possible eye contact with anyone) the teachers just followed me with their beaming eyes. Sufficiently awkward. Being in such a busy environment is so overwhelming, I'm used to being just me, or me and my parents. But the cantine filled with 200 girls, with the horrific stench of the school food, was all a lot to take in. But none of that makes me miss it less, I still wish I were in there everyday with my girls. The welcome of "Oh..hello. Um..hi. ..Hi Laura, how are you? How are you feeing? ..Um..yeah." I got from my maths teacher was funny, he seemed somewhat confused about my existence, only to have one of my lovely girls to then sprint up the classroom and mount me whilst he was mid-sentance. Poor guy.

So all in all, it's been a good last few days. I watched Toy Story on Sunday night, Toy Story 2 on Monday night and was hoping to watch Toy Story 3 tonight, only to find out we didn't actually have it on DVD. So instead, I'm hoping to snuggle in bed with The Lovely Bones later. Despite not even watching the film with me last night, my older brother also managed to demolish an entire Toy Story birthday cake that was originally bought for mum in the time-scale of roughly two scenes before he got bored and pondered off.  But of course, Laura saves the day by being organised and having an un-eaten birthday cake already organised with candles and the lot. So he demolished that tonight as well. I was kept happy though as I got the ribbon of Toy Story stickers that came around the cake. #winning 

Anyway, back to the point. ..Well there's not really a point at all, but Alice in Wonderland and tea parties etc. I'm just so intrigued by Alice in Wonderland. Always have been. I confess, however, I've never seen the original Disney film, only the Tim Burton version about three-hundred times. It's amazing, so magical; the concept of a little girl who falls down a rabbit hole into some magical world where there's a smiling cat and a mad-man with a top hat and Queens and castles and amazing tea parties. One day, once I'm better (there's that sentence again) I'm going to have a Mad Hatter's tea party. Decided. Everyone shall come dressed in Alice in Wonderland attire, we shall have afternoon tea and cakes and frolock around as if we were in a magical land, because that's the kind of thing my friends and I enjoy to do. If I weren't allergic to cats, I would definitely own a Cheshire cat. With a disgustingly huge, teethy smile who can fly and disappear and talk. So that's one more thing to add to my 'Better List' (inspired again by sophiefeelsbetter) which is basically, as she described it, 'directly opposite to a bucket list' But to cut to the chase it's basically a list of things I plan to do once I'm better. It's still in construction and maintenance so one of my next posts will hopefully be idea'd around my Better List. I'm sure you're all edge-of-your-seats excited.

I again, apologise for the lack of nice pictures on all my blogs. I do take them..occasionally. But they never seem to be of people, unless it's me, bored on my Photo Booth or iPod just taking snaps of myself, which would be highly embarrassing uploading them on this. But i shall try harder, as I've said before!
