Its the last day of May so i thought i would do the same as last month and do a currently loving.
So without further ado here is a nosey at whats made me happy during May.
Tequila and teabags is a new read for me but i can tell its going to be a fav for sure it has been written so relatable to many twenty somethings facing life changing choices its a story not a self help book i can’t wait to find out what happens.
i am absolutely loving YouTube and these three totally different girls are the videos i’m binge watching at the moment.
You guessed it i have a chocolate favourite again. its not going to be one for much longer as i’ve over indulged this month and put on 4 pounds. So next months WILL NOT be chocolate. But these are so bloody yummy and i’ve always been a fan of Turkish Delights.
As you know i love to write in any form and i wrote a poem for my mums birthday and this was it, may i add she cried. Bless her.
i haven’t found anything so pretty and comfy at the same time until now i have a pair of pom pom sandals from Primark of all places and for £10 i wish they did this style if shoe in every colour my feet felt so supportive.
I have always loved Miley Cyrus ever since Hannah Montana and when i heard her new song i was like yes the old Miley is back and she hasn’t failed to impress. It’s beautiful.
Click on pic to listen on YouTube its been listened to 98,000,000 times. Not all by me 🙂
Quote of the month…
This has to be one of the most touching quotes to a creative soul like myself and many of you of course from the legendary Robin Williams.
Let’s rewind all the way back to the year of 1996 when little me was in my last year of junior school age 11.
It was a Sunday night so my usual routine was watch Bullseye have a bath and hair wash and go to bed. However Mum had decided to go to bingo so Dad was left in charge. I was left to get on with washing my hair then I got out the bath reached for the yellow towel wiped myself and screamed….I had turned it partially red.
“Daddy Daddy I’m dying”
So dad came to the rescue… well kind of. He goes “ahhh these things happen at your age where does Mum keep the panty things” “I’m a girl Dad not a lady and mum had a hysterectomy years ago, she doesn’t have a period anymore.” So it was make do and mend til mum came home about half an hour later. Mobiles weren’t about then to ring to tell her I was in distress. So while mum was shouting house at bingo I was bleeding and right there and then I knew that not everything that bled would be fixed with a plaster. A load of rolled up toilet roll had to do overnight.
Early in the morning Mum had whipped to the shop just down the road as soon as they opened to get me some Bodyform pads and then she explained what to do and how often to change them and sent me off to school with a note for my teacher. As lovely as my teacher was she left my letter on her desk for all to read. Of course it had to be a boy who read it and before I knew it was ‘Hollys got her period’ was spread all around the class. How bloody embarrassing. (Excuse the pun.) We hadn’t even had sex education at that point so over the next few days one of the support teachers took me under her wing and taught me a bit more about it.
I remember getting up from assembly off the floor running to the toilet and crying my eyes out as I thought I was bleeding to death as it was all in the toilet. I was too young to understand but it made me grow up so quickly.
I’ve been bleeding for 20 years now (monthly not non stop) and to look back and think of how it all started is quite scary but I love to have a period as I know my reproductive system is working. I say love… I yearn for it to come as I hate the hormonal stage and as soon as it comes I can’t wait for it to go.
Looking back on the week we just had…
On Tuesday I took Mum out for a meal as she had to work all day on her birthday Wednesday. The diet went out the window as we made little piggies of ourselves. It was lovely and then we walked home which hopefully burnt off the yummy banoffee cheesecake.
On the hottest day (Friday) i suggested to Mum it was too nice to stay in or around our neck of the woods and maybe we should jump on the bus and go shopping. We came back with some lovely things. 2 baths were definitely needed to cool down when we got home.
The weekend was quiet apart from the enormous thunderstorm early hours of sat mornings.
This week I don’t really have anything planned so I’m going to see where it takes me and report back. I hope you all have a fantastic week 🌸
Today we can say we have some summer sun even though it’s not technically summer until the 21st June.
If you live in England you will probably agree with me it’s bloody hot. Normally we toy with the idea of wrapping ourselves up in blankets or briefly putting the heating on but the weather man is being good to us.
I somehow got the pale gene so I have to be a tad bit careful when exposing myself to that glorious sun. If only I could go starkers in my secluded back garden.
Beach days are something to look forward to and my little niece is growing up fast so sandcastles and a baby splash in the sea is definitely worth taking my camera and maybe there will be some talent too. Shouldn’t take pics of them just observe.
I will definitely be doing some more summer posts just thought I’d write a quick one today.
Look after yourself in the sun, keep protected and please don’t look like a lobster it’s not an attractive look and you’ll hurt like a bitch 😁
I always tried to fit in back in the day now I make sure I stand out a mile. You don’t have to change completely just be yourself.
This always reminds me of Macy Grays song ‘I try’ . In life things are going to trip you up make it look like you were meant to and it was a dance move all along.
We all make mistakes some big, some small just remember what it taught you and move on with life. Nobody’s perfect.
When you are trying to be strong you want someone to believe in you and give you the support you want. Well here’s the sign.
No truer words spoken. A quote is like a lyric if you understand it it can have the biggest impact on your life. Ideas make dreams a reality too so never stop writing down your weird and wonderful ideas.
Well I thought I would make this post a weekly thing. Which will be a summery of last week and a look at the week ahead.
We all know things don’t always go to plan as last week I blogged every day but I was recovering in bed from swollen glands and low blood pressure but I didn’t want it to get in the way of my passion for writing. Plus it peed it down for the majority of the week so I wasn’t overly fussed. However the week did end on a happy note my brother, his partner and baby girl visited and we managed a stroll into town. Then we went to my uncles for a lush roast dinner. If you’re not from England you are seriously missing out.
So today’s Monday it’s 23 degrees which is rare for British people but long may it last that’s all I say. We are having our garden made over the best input I get to do is paint the shed a pretty colour so I’m looking forward to when I can get stuck into that. I purchased a hula hoop so it’s my new hobbie and I aim to be a pro by the end of the summer. Wishful thinking 🙂
It’s my Mums birthday Wednesday so I’m going to spoil her rotten cos she deserves it she’s something kind of wonderful and I owe her my heart she does so much for me since becoming ill and before that too.
Whatever else the week brings let’s hope it’s all positive.
Gonna go grab the sun cream as pale old me doesn’t fancy sunburn. I hope you all have a fabulous week.
Much loves 😘
Friday – The day that you know that you just need to get to 5pm and you can wave bye bye to your worries til Monday
Plans are made for the weekend whether it’s fun filled or a nice relaxing one. The saying goes live for the weekend.
It’s crazy to think they are only a word but mean so much.
As I’ve got older I just see where the mood takes me of a weekend. Back in the day it was clubbing and drinking and being hungover…those days have long gone.
The good thing about the weekend if you don’t have to work is switching your alarm off and sleeping in til noon if you fancy.
Then when it gets to the end of the weekend don’t look at Monday as being full of dread until the weekend keep this quote in mind.
