He loves me, he loves me not

I’m sat here with soppy love songs blasting out of my iPhone, this playlist to be exact…

Takes me back to my school days of writing ‘Holly 4 Tom 4eva’ on my rough book, doing he loves me loves me not with a daisy and getting super excited when it landed on he loves me. The crushes on the older lads that you could only ever dream or write about. There’s plenty of entries in my diaries in the 90s of days I saw my crush and how my heart skipped a beat and all that crap…its so funny thinking back at it now.

However, I didn’t have a proper boyfriend until year 10. He was also who I lost my virginity to which was not how I planned to do it and be slightly underage but peer pressure got to me and well it happened…thought I was pregnant and told my Mum. Ooo the disappointment…soon after I told her my period came on the bloody irony literally.

I wrote about my love life here if you fancy a read…

I am however very single at the moment. I know what I want in a relationship – its just I need to find someone who can accept that yes my legs don’t work properly 90% of the time and I need loving that little bit more, who enjoys snuggling up but equally go on fun adventures..oh dear this sounds like I’m making an ad for a dating site…i’ll stop now haha.

Tomorrow is Valentines Day and I hope you enjoy it whether you are happily single or with someone who makes your world rock.

It’s been nice reminiscing. People say don’t look back but some of your most favourite memories are there.

Til next time…

A Random Q and A

it’s Saturday morning, it’s peeing down outside, how English…

Anyways I thought I would do a very laid back post today and find some questions from good old Pinterest to answer. Some may be quite interesting others may be a bit random, its all a bit of fun so let’s begin.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

I wanted to be an author. I wanted to write from a young age and my dream has come true. My book is now on Amazon.

which friends character do you relate to the most?

I would have loved to of said Rachael but I am going to have to say Phoebe because of her randomness.  I like her can’t sing to save my life but give it a good try.

whats your favourite accent?

I absolutely love the Irish accent. On a weekly basis, you would hear me and my mum saying words in an Irish accent. I find it funny that they don’t really pronounce TH. I like the welsh too but an Irish man talking just melts me.

Do you have any scars?

I have 3 keyhole scars from my gallbladder removal 10 years ago, a big scar from my bladder reconstruction surgery from 3 years ago. oooo and from troublesome skin, I have some scarring on my cheeks. All scars have a story.

Favourite swear word?

I am going to say fuck. I have after all the years of writing fuck on a text message and it comes up duck I have it sorted…put it in your phone book. no number needed and your phone won’t get it mixed up. I don’t condone swearing all the time just when it’s needed.

Whats your guilty pleasure?

I think most of my friends and readers know I have a weakness for silver foxes also even though he isn’t grey I love a bit of Colin Firth. Who doesn’t?

What are you wearing?

A pink cropped hooded jumper, black leggings, Disney socks, an oversized scarf and a hot water bottle…yes I am wearing it. it’s never too far away.

Favourite boys and girls name?

I love the name Frankie for a boy and Lola for a girl…i actually would change my name to Lola if I could.

Favourite movie ever

Bridget obviously….closely followed by Dirty Dancing and Now and Then…all very quotable I could watch them over and over again without getting bored.

A celebrity you can’t stand?

I can’t stand Michael Macintyre simply because I really don’t like a comedian who laughs at his own jokes before the audience has. Give me Mickey Flanagan any day.

Ever skinny dipped?

No never skinny dipped but I definitely wouldn’t say no…something about just being free and in the sea, it’s like a ginormous bath without the bubbles.

Do you like yourself?

I didn’t use to say 2 or 3 years back.I didn’t like looking in the mirror for too long and didn’t like my body shape but I am learning to love myself and all of my flaws. I am much more body positive these days,

There you have it a get to know me in question form. I probably will do more of these at some point they get your mind thinking.

Have a fab weekend

Til next time…

MAKE 2018 YOUR YEAR

Please don’t look back at this year in disappointment at what went wrong or what you didn’t achieve.

The past can not be changed but you can shape your future.

2018 will be your year if you put the effort in. It’s not just going to do itself…very few are that lucky.

Take it a month at a time and aim to write some goals down that you want to smash. make them manageable, break them down into points if needed. Trust me it’s so much easier. Don’t go overboard with too many goals maybe 3/4 is a sensible number.

Grab yourself a diary/ planner to write down all the things in the week you have to do. So you got your organisation on paper as the head can get a bit muddled at times. I had my planner pictured below for my birthday and I have made use of it every day since. It gets you into a routine and when you have completed all that’s on your weekly page you can feel accomplished which in turn makes you feel happier.

This one is from Hobbycraft but there’s so many out there to choose from you are spoilt for choice really.

You also want to make plenty of memories too and this little D.I.Y is perfect for anyone at any age. Grab a empty jar, you choose how big you want it. Write on a label something about memories or find some printables online like i did and stick it on your jar. Then start making memories – don’t forget to write them on a piece of paper and put them in your memory jar. When it is full or at the end of 2018 you can read them all and smile.

MAKE 2018 ONE TO REMEMBER

Here’s to health, happiness and magical memories.

My Christmas Wish To You

I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I will be back shortly after Christmas to do a few posts before we start the new year…

I’ve been blogging every day lately and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. However I do need to sort out a schedule of some sort for 2018.

Eat as much as you can without popping on Christmas Day. It’s the only time you can get away with it without someone saying haven’t you ate enough already.

Spend it with those that matter the most. It’s not all about presents it’s about love. Well it is for me. Presents are just a bonus.

Much love and enjoy xx

 

A-Z of Me

This is quite a fun little exercise to do and I had this in my notes section on my phone then I could add ones in and post it when I had the full alphabet.

So the aim of it is to be kind to yourself when using the descriptive words to describe yourself. It’s not that hard you just need to think a bit.

Here is what I came up with for me

2017-12-17 (1)

A short but sweet blog post for a Sunday but fun nonetheless.

Feel free to join in and tag me so I can see yours.

Living For The Now

Things that have troubled you maybe last week or last month, just niggly things should be pushed out of the picture.

Your life, the one you are working on to get as you want is

Today, not yesterday or tomorrow but today.

So don’t worry about what has happened or is going to happen.  Focus on the here and now, as tomorrow is never promised.

I firmly believe that worrying about things that can’t be changed is a waste of time and energy.

Put your all into things that you can make a difference to and be proud of what you can accomplish.

QUOTES ABOUT LIVING FOR THE NOW

The Pages of yesterday cannot be revised, but the pages of tomorrow are blank and you hold the pen.

Make it an inspiring story.

Til next time
