Here's how I've interpreted the theme.
1. It was my birthday earlier this month and my beloved bought me a birthday cake that I think expresses me very well - I may be fast approaching the big 50 but I'm really a big kid at heart, so of course he got me a pink princess cake.
2. The below shop is in Inverness, sitting between much bigger buildings and yet I'm sure everyone notices this wee shop. Why - because it expresses itself very well, with over the top Scottishness, loud bagpipe music being piped into the street, and to top it all off, a fake owl sitting at the upstairs window.
3. This month we visited Portmahomack which is a bit further north than us in the Scottish Highlands. As we had a look around this small fishing town we came upon this garage door - these people obviously believe in standing out amongst all the quaint, understated cottages.
4. This is the window of a cafe in London called Antipode (can you guess why I like this place?). The window has a coffee cup (that's the large thing in the top left of the photo) and a cat drinking coffee - apart from that there are no signs to identify the cafe. The pictures are enough to express their individuality as an independent cafe that serves excellent coffee.
5. Final picture is of my workplace which is normally brown and green, but as we're raising awareness for World Cancer Day on Saturday, February 4th, today the building was lit up purple and our landscaped mounds have fairy lights all around them. As purple is my favourite colour I think it's fabulous. The purpose for the lights is that hopefully more people will learn about Maggie's and know that they can come to us if they are affected by cancer - we're expressing ourselves so that we're noticed.
So there you have it, my concept of the theme, Express Yourself. Before you go why don't you pop over to P.J's blog and see what my fellow bloggers have come up with - click HERE to visit.
Until next time, be good, stay safe, and make sure you express yourself well this week.
