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…

All the single ladies

If like me you are a single pringle this will very much apply to you…

So just because its Valentines Day on the 14th of Feb doesn’t mean you have to feel down in the dumps about not being coupled up with someone. It is only another day after all.

So I have come up with some things us single ladies could do if we really didn’t want to feel unloved this Valentines Day.

Treat yourself to something online

You know that thing you have had in your wishlist on ASOS or Amazon for ages…go get it girl. You deserve it. It’ll make you feel happy won’t it what have you got to lose…well just as long as you don’t break the bank getting it.

Have a pamper day

You know as well as me that a good old sesh of pampering yourself is so relaxing and therapeutic as hell. Grab all your bath bombs, scrubs, face mask and candles and move into the bath for the afternoon. It’s the best feeling when you’re looking after yourself and feeling good about it at the same time.

Bake or buy yourself a cake

Nothing tastes as good as a piece of cake…ask Matilda’s friend Brucie Bogtrotter – in fairness he ate the entire cake maybe don’t overindulge,  just a tiny bit of yumminess. Go to your local supermarket or bakery and grab your favourite cake or the ingredients you need if you are going to put your whole heart into baking one. Grab a spoon sit down and enjoy each mouthful.

Go for drinks with your girlfriends

Maybe there are a few of you in your friendship circle that don’t have a significant other. There is no better excuse to go for drinks with your friends you don’t want to be alone and nor do they so drinks to celebrate how fab you all are sounds like a perfect plan.

Last but no means least

Good old Netflix…..Chill on your own and watch what you want for as long as you want with all the snacks and blankets you want.

Hope my single readers will maybe do one of the things above…failing that just hibernate undercover til Easter.

Thanks for reading

til next time…

Good Moaning its Monday

08053266f93f9b6a579aba208df983f5

Oh my goodness really is it really here? I want the weekend to be here already I hear you say. I bloody hate Monday. Well, guess what…..

c276586d93d63b4519bd4608398d0d3e

For years and years the word Monday sends peoples blood pressures shooting up, as they dread the start of the week ahead. The weekends gone and its ages until it comes back around again.

Heres some humour to get you out the Monday blues…

I’m picturing Rod Stewart right now but he looks pretty hot with his crazy hair so not every mullet is hideous.

 I guess that we can look at it as not every Monday is the same and some you will shudder at and others you will grow to like.

You needn’t be in a slump for the entire day, starting a week on a bad feeling is just asking for a shit week ahead.

Put a smile on your face, a big pair of positive pants on and make a list of goals you want to smash for the next 7 days and stroll into the week with your head held high.

I found this quote and thought I would add it in at the end32104f8553e2209ffef6d647f9a2c346

Much loves and a Happy Monday to you all

Stages of a relationship (in pictures)

You look at each other and instantly fireworks spark, you have butterflies and yeah you’re in there hook line and sinker.

 On the date your true colours shine through and they think your something kinda special.

Life is peachy and you can’t get enough of being with each other. Affection overload. Maybe the L word might slip out. 

Then one day they say they will be round to pick you up and you are at the window looking like an idiot cos they stood you up 

The where are you call turns into ‘ i don’t think this is working it’s not me it’s you…no I mean it’s not you it’s me’

Of course tears will be shed they were the reason you smiled, the adventures you had,just them made you feel like nobody else could.
Soon enough you see them walking around with someone new, they downgraded and you can’t help but giggle to yourself.

As one door closes another one opens and guess what you will be head over heels with someone else 

and your face with your friend will be just like this…..

What makes me tick √

Let’s delve a little bit deeper so you can get to know me a little better.

Being happy in life is one thing we all strive to achieve daily.

Heres a few things that bring a smile to my face and that can turn my frown upside down.

A playlist on Spotify

This one I am loving at the moment, I made it myself and it’s got some new songs and old on there. A song is quite a powerful thing, get the right lyrics and you got a happy listener.

Perfect Eye Candy 

These four men are just mmm.

  • My love for Colin Firth when I first saw him in Bridget Jones over a decade ago. He can be my Mr Darcy any day.
  • I managed to bag myself a VIP ticket 2 years ago to meet Paul Hollywood and got talking with him, real down to earth and very easy on the eye. Don’t know how I managed to not stutter or faint.
  • When I was 10 I went to watch Phillip Scofield in Joseph and the amazing technicolour dreamcoat. Little did i know he would become the fine silver fox that he is today. Being 3 rows back watching him perform in a loin cloth would have been more appreciated my age now.
  • Lastly, Adrian Grenier caught my eye years ago when he was the curly-haired lad in Entourage then in The Devil Wears Prada. I don’t know there’s just something about him.

mmmmmmm

A Poem with meaning

Being a lover of writing you can always find happiness in words.

This is one I have recently stumbled across, its written by a talented poet Erin Hanson. There is plenty of her work on Pinterest.

A Hug

Ever since i was a little girl i have been a hugger. I don’t go overboard with one but sometimes its just what you need. No matter who it’s from it doesn’t necessarily have to be the loving kind just at the right time.

hug

There you go, now you know me a bit better than the start of reading this.

what makes you tick?
