What feels like the longest month is nearly over… Its been a roller-coaster one for me with having an op but there have been some lovely things also that have made my January be filled with smiles.
Let’s start with
MY PURPLE SUITCASE
I searched high and low for a suitcase as I needed one for all my worldly goods at the hospital, and just at the last minute I found this one for £30. It’s called a Grant carry on case if you were looking for one too. I know that if I need to spend the night away this beaut will be coming with me.
MUSIC OF THE MONTH
If you like listening to covers of songs then you may like to take a nosey at
This one I’ve picked out is actually his own I believe. He has such a lovely tone to his voice
FOOD I’M LOVING
There were these sitting on a shelf asking to be bought so I couldn’t say no.
I love white chocolate and these didn’t let the side down. Truly delicious. Hopefully I can find them again as they were from a small shop.
Whether you like a bap or bread, you got to try mushy peas on the bottom then a fishcake. Chips are optional.
I’ve always loved fishcakes since I was little but never tried this and if I feel like treating myself this will be it.
WORD OF THE MONTH
The song by Sia gave me the inspiration. I knew I had a tough end to the month, so the lyrics and that word got me through.
BOOK I RECOMMEND
If you love RuPaul or Drag Race you will love this book he bought out.
It’s full of positivity and inspirational quotes like this one for example
I love RuPaul as a person and not just as a performer.
QUOTE OF THE MONTH
This one describes me I guess and I love it when a quote speaks volumes.
What have you enjoyed this month?
I like most things with quotes on it as I think it’s really expressive and can say exactly what you are thinking without speaking a word.
Love a good mug so these are a few I’ve picked that stood out to me.
You like making statements with your makeup so why not with a make up bag and a witty quote on it.
The collection here of mugs and makeup bags are positive and quirky. Nothing wrong with plain but standing out in the crowd is loads more fun.
When it comes to those things that really mean something in your life, like big things. The ones that you have to make a decision on, depending how you feel.
So do you listen what your head is saying or how it makes your heart feel… here’s my thoughts on it…
Things that are going to impact your life, every aspect of it, of course Thought and consideration comes into play. But it’s really how it makes you feel when you envision yourself already having it.
I know when that thing has made me smile from ear to ear it’s a feeling of happiness and joy.
So I think I believe it’s heart over head. But each person their own look on it I guess.
As you may have seen I’ve been blogging daily… This is because I’m having surgery next week and I’m not sure how long I’ll have a painkiller induced mind for (away with the fairies)
I thought I’d keep writing to I dunno keep myself busy.
So today I thought I’d have a chat about some things that are my all-time favourite things
The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe is my favourite books from my childhood. It was so magical and I’m glad they then made it into The Chronicles of Narnia. Over the last couple of years I discovered the wonderful poet Erin Hanson. So I love flickering through the pages and relate.
These 3 films are a bit old school but I love them and have probably watched them enough to say the whole film word for word.
So random that my favourite food is chippy, sausage, sprouts and chocolate. Obviously not all at the same time.
While searching for a pic of my fave male and female actors there they were stood together and it suddenly dawned on me they were in Mamma Mia together. I think they are bloody wonderful.
My favourite animal did used to be a pig as I was growing up. But over the last 20 years I have loved sheep. I would love one as a pet, but would need a big field for him and then some friends so he didn’t feel lonely 😂
You can kind of guess what my favourite colour is… I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed but I’m half way there.
Hope you’ve enjoyed finding out what makes me happy no matter what.
When it really comes down to it, you become the person you believe you’d become.
If you spend all your thoughts believing you won’t make it, you will never make it.
If you spend all your thoughts thinking that it’s impossible, it becomes impossible for you.
But if you spend your thoughts and energy believing it is possible, it suddenly becomes possible.
Doors will open for you, ideas will come your way. Your dreams will start coming true. You have everything you need within you to live your dreams,
But first of all you have to believe
I know the weekend was probably great and you didn’t want to wake up this morning because Monday always happens after Sunday 🙈
So I’ve found a few positive quotes about Mondays
If you wallow in the fact it’s Monday you won’t get stuff done so go out and create the life you want.
I like to think of every week as a fresh, so Mondays are just that. Fresh starts to do great things with your life.
If you don’t have a plan for the days ahead you have no vision. So get planning.
I love this song. It’s a reminder that it takes a little effort but if you put your back into it you can do it, do it, DO IT. sorry was breaking out into song then 😂
Happy Monday… Make yours motivational physically and mentally.
