I've started to knit myself a new hat for winter. But to be honest i wear hats all year round!
I found this hat on Ravelry and started knitting:
So far it looks like this (knitted in some old Rowan wool I've had for about 4 years!):
The colours aren't overly clear (badly need to buy a new camera! Mine is over 5 years old now) but it's a dark brown with a bit of a purple tinge to it and I've put a stripe of light yellow with it, the wool I used for my pencil scarf. I hope it doesn't turn out too tight, I like them so slouchy that I can hardly tell it's on my head.
Yesterday (Friday) I went to ALTON TOWERS!!!!
It was seriously the best day I've had in so long. We got up early for it, which was worth it in the end as we went on SO many rides! I drove there, my first long (ish) distance drive since I got my little car. Thank god for sat-nav's! Anyway, here are some pics:

The whole day was pretty awesome. Hardly any queues and only a little bit of rain at the end. Didn't get home till nearly 9pm, then after a couple of crumpets for tea it was time to go out again.
I went into town to see a band called 'Organ Freeman' (facebook page here).
They are pretty brilliant and so funny to watch. I've never seen a bad as entertaining as them. This is them, but I did not take these photo's. HERE is the page for the photographer.
I'm deffo going to get one of their t-shirts!
IT WAS A BOSS SHOW! GO AND SEE THEM!
After the eventful day... I fell asleep as soon as I got home:

New purchase alert! Zelda manga anyone? How did I not know this existed? It was buy 2 get 1 free so I got the first two and then got something I'd never heard of, but it looked cute.

I'm very excited that FOREVER 21 have announced that they are opening a store in Liverpool. I always loved the clothes on their site, and the store is going to be HUGE! Canny wait!
I don't have much other news. I have a pretty big week ahead at work but I will still no doubt be updating my TUMBLR, TWITTER and FACEBOOK so go and follow me on those! GO GO GO!
