Cartoon Memories

30 Oct

Hey guys, sorry it’s been so long! Lots of fun things have been happening. I wish I had taken more photos to share with you all.

Earlier this week the new boyfriend came to stay and I have some photos of that for you!




Yesterday I got a care package through the mail, all the way from Finland, from the lovely Anne!


The package at the top is milk chocolate with Moomins packaging! Does anyone else remember the Moomins? I didn’t realise they were Finnish! I used to love the cartoon when I was a child. The package on the left is salty liquorice. Anne warned me that they were an acquired taste but I have to be honest- I couldn’t even eat a whole sweet. They were not pleasant! I am going to take them to my boyfriend’s next week and make him eat them! He claims to like everything!! I’ve yet to try the crackers and dark chocolate but I can’t wait! Thanks Anne!

Today I got my hairs cut and dyed. Anyone remember Doug? In one episode he went to get his hair cut but said he was getting his ‘hairs cut’ which was appropriate as he only had about 8 hairs! I loved the theme tune of that cartoon.



Sorry about the bad photo! The hairdresser noticed that my hair is not nearly as thick as it used to be. I had noticed I was losing a lot of hair a few weeks ago but hoped I was imagining it. I’ve never had thick hair but it’s really lacking now. Maybe I need to use Flax seed again, or just start taking a multi-vitamin again.

I’m going away for a whole week from Monday as I have an interview up north on Tuesday and I’m going to a fireworks party with the boyfriend in Dunblane on Friday. I’m hoping you guys will keep me in your readers or on your blog rolls until I can get back to blogging regularly again!

Do you remember The Moomins or Doug? What was your favourite cartoon when you were a child? Have a great Halloween weekend!

    Ahh I remember Doug and the Moomims! My dad bought some of that salty licorice from Ikea once, he was gutted!! He will eat anything too, I’m looking forward to seeing what your bf thinks of it!

    Hiya! I know, it’s a shame that I give up Zumba but as I said, the instructor is ot as good as the other one. There is another Zumba class on Thursday but it’s a different type of Zumba: a slower one 😦
    I might go back to it later. And you have you started it????
    Your package looks good. Ive got friends at work from Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark and they all eat this salty liquorice 😉
    Oh, when are you gonna tell us more about your new Boyfriend???? Come on Girl 🙂
