Today I worked until 1pm and drove home singing Chris Brown’s ‘Beautiful People’ at the top of my lungs on repeat for around 20 minutes of the journey. Proceeded by Olly Murs. Loud. With the window open a bit. A few weird looks at a set of stop lights later, I got home, got in my bed in my uniform and went to sleep. Woke up. Put my pyjamas on. (I know, right.) Made pasta for tea, watched Simpsons and South Park. Played with Charlie, fed her apple. Came up to bed. Procrastinated, painted my nails glittery black. Wrote a blog post. Set my alarm. Kept emergency carton of apple juice on bedside table for thirsty moments in the night. Pondered how grumpy and tired I would be in the morning having had no sleep. Decided life is too short to worry. Got bad belly ache. Blaming dairy filled hot chocolate which was minty and very nice given WWIII going on in my tummy. Damned lactose intolerance. Wondered why I have written my blog in this format. Came up with no answer. Decided I am too tired to carry on. Rubbed eyes. Put phone down on bedside table.
I recently saw a friends post titled ’10 things I cannot live without’ and decided I wanted to try one of my own. Somethings may be really soppy, and a lot of things I could probably live without, but I just wouldn’t like to.
Okay, number one.
I am one of the very lucky ones to still have all my grandparents alive, plenty of aunties, uncles and cousins, fantastic parents and a lovely brother. I love them all so much.
A very old photo (I’m bottom row, second one in) my cousins will kill me 😀
My other half.
I needn’t write much here. I really love him 🙂
(This was about three years ago… he has facial hair now and everything 😉 )
Yes… I’m an awful apple geek.

My beautiful engagement ring
this is the photo of it from Ernest Jones’ website. It’s so beautiful.
My beautiful Charlie
She is my gorgeous baby hamster 🙂
My beautiful baby Wolfy 🙂
My beautiful baby with my friend Sam 🙂
My musical instruments.
I couldn’t possibly put all the photos on of my instruments, but I have a fab 1920’s Bentley piano sat in my hallway which is a pleasure to play, a Yamaha flute, a Selmer clarinet and a Bundy saxophone.Love playing them all 🙂
My beautiful Citroën C1
It is exactly that colour too!
My lovely network of friends
Friends are a wonderful part of life and they bring you through so many things, I love mine all to pieces.
Of course, writing this post, most things are very materialistic and I’m so lucky to be privileged to own them all. I really couldn’t live without food or water and there are so many in the world that go without.
This is my song of my month! I know I’m going to listen to it so much that I hate it but its constantly on repeat at the moment.
What have I been up to in a week? Well, aside from working, I went to Manchester Christmas Markets (so worth a visit), finished my Christmas shopping (!!) and for the most of my holiday so far, been in bed with stomach flu. Yay.
Today is Tuesday and the first day I feel remotely human, so I’m paracetamol-ing it up and heading to Nando’s to meet my best friend and then later tonight meeting up with Lee 🙂
Tomorrow I have to take my brother to a college open night which frightens me somewhat that he’s old enough to be doing that now.
Thursday night is Academy cheap drinks night – woohoo – I love Academy, and a cheap drink 😉
Friday, probably recovering.
Hopefully I’ll be able to blog between my social happenings 🙂
My lovely Nando’s eating chum Emily and I 🙂 x
To all my blog readers, especially the growing numbers from beyond the UK – hello! – thanks for sticking by despite my absence.
The last few weeks have been so busy it’s untrue and despite my efforts to try and keep up I’ve miserably failed :-(.
So, over the last few weeks my life has consisted of a cycle of working, sleeping, eating and sinking the occasional Jameson or Guinness when I get a chance in going to the pub. Three times in four days, I might be getting a reputation here…
Ah well, so, since the fireworks, what have we had, mostly working and making sure the hamsters are still alive, seeing friends, having Indian takeouts, going to a remembrance service, going to the gym and more work. Fun.
I’m actually writing this while trying to get ready to see a friend and failing to multitask so on the premise I’m already late, I bid you goodnight and thank you for still reading my sparse posts!!
My lovely friend Sam and I from our school days who I am meeting tonight! 🙂
So, I apologise for the lack in postings, I’ve been back to work (boo) so it has been a case of tea, cuddle Mr Emmy, sleep.
I also discovered I have views from as far as Russia and the Czech Republic. Hello there!
The weekend was a very busy one, as it is time for the British tradition of Guy Fawkes night (or Bonfire night, depending on your persuasion) today, on Saturday, myself, Mr Emmy and another couple who we are close friends with visited the Trafford Centre (fantastic place) and came home to a mini fireworks party. Sunday was a chill out day, roast dinner and a quick trip to Tesco followed by Homeland (oh yes) and my weekly fill of Damien Lewis (enough said).
Tonight, being actually bonfire night, myself, Mr Emmy and the ninja turtles Lee and Zee (see what I did there?) headed on down to Preston Grasshoppers rugby ground for a display. Very nice. A bit chilly for my liking but it hasn’t really got above 3 degrees Celsius for the whole day.
What a wonderful night! Looking forward to my lie in 😉
So Friday, finally.
Oh, and happy November everyone.
Worked the last two days which actually has been okay and now it’s the lovely weekend!!! So tonight I’m getting ready to see the lovely Mr Emmy and I had completely forgotten that I said I’d meet my friend for a drink. Oops.
Anyway, listening to some Imogen Heap and putting my gladrags on and I hope everyone has a cracking weekend!
P.S, don’t forget to be safe with your fireworks guys!
