2) The Day After Yesterday..

Saturday, was the day after Friday, but not the day after most normal Friday’s.

1) Thor's hammer!


The 12th of September 2014 was one of those days that shall be in my calendar. It’s the day that I walked out of one job and finally after much searching and waiting, walked into a full time one and in the process hopefully laying to bed all the money worries that have been there the last few months, it’s also the day one of the most perfect things in the world changed for ever. 330 more words
