Storytime Sunday

Take a seat I’m going to tell you a story.

So I’m nearly 34 and I’ll tell you something… Even though I am not where I expected to be or dreamt of being… I have been on one hell of a journey…and it has made me the person I am today.

❤️

I have suffered abuse/bullying its made me be more aware.

❤️

I’ve had my heart broken it’s taught me it mends within time.

♥️

I have stumbled into poor health, it makes me stronger and fight harder.

❤️

I had a crush on someone of the same sex. It taught me that gender doesn’t matter.

❤️

I have accomplished things in life which shows me to never give up on something you want.

♥️

I have witnessed divorce with my parents it’s taught me that love doesn’t always last forever.

❤️

I’ve met people from all walks of life and it’s made me realise that everyone has a story and no two stories will ever be the same.

That’s my little Sunday storytime. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello October my old friend

I’ve waited for you all year October.

I love October because….

  • It is now officially autumn
  • It gets darker sooner so can get all snuggled up under fluffy blankets.
  • It’s my birthday in this month
  • Halloween… When not all the trick or treaters don’t come and there’s sweets left over.

It also not the best month for one reason: I lost my brother last year. So it’s always going to be a little bit sad. But I like to remember the happy times I had with him.

What’s your favourite month and why?

Music and me


Personally when I have a head full of problems that I just don’t want to sort at that precise moment in time, I always turn to music.

Different types help me in different ways

  • When I feel anxious and just want to chill, out I will go for something like a crackling fire or panpipes. Just focusing on the sound and the sound alone seems to soothe me.
  • If I need perking up because I’m in a grouchy mood then I’ll go for something that has a beat – think cheesy nightclub music. It brings back good memories.
  • If the tears are flowing because I’m generally upset, whether it’s hormonal or just somethings got to me, call me mad but I like listening to soppy love songs to just bawl my eyes out and get all the tears out all at once.
  • I do love just sitting with my mum and listening to her kind of music…which is the 60s as that was her school days/her youth. They really did have some great music out back then.

Here’s a playlist with some examples of the songs I’m on about.

What music do you turn to in your time of need?

 

 

What are you writing about?

From when you were small and you learnt to write your name….

Little did you know that you would be writing your whole life.

Though we all use writing differently.

If you are reading my blog and you blog too then you have a talent with your writing, or if you are an author I take my hat off to you too.

These 3 books play an important role in my life.

This is my journal where I write down whatever comes into my head I think is worth writing down and looking back at.

This one is where I see all the self care tips and those hacks and such like I put them in here so I know when I need some encouragement it’s in here.

Finally this is where I write all my ideas for blog ideas and of course my future book when I get round to writing it.

I write pretty much all the time as I adore it so much.

Thanks for stopping by

Let me think about it

It’s Saturday night it’s been so bloody hot today here in England.

so I thought let’s do a nice easy Q and A from the comfort of my nice cool bedroom.

OK its called 5 favourites and I’ve chosen 5 questions from the list…

Oh this is my thinking face too 🙈

  • 5 favourite celebrities : Micky Flanagan, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Phillip Schofield and Cameron Diaz (3 eye candy and 2 fab women)
  • 5 favourite words/sayings you use too much: peachy, beaut, I love it, you’re special, ya (like the German for yeah) that ones just become a habit 🙈
  • 5 favourite movies of all time : Bridget Jones Diary – the first one, Now and then, 10 things I hate about you, The kissing booth and of course Dirty Dancing…. There’s so many than 5 I’ll do a blog post on it at a later date.
  • 5 favourite pictures on my phone that are not people :

and finally

5 favourite quotes:

  1. live well, laugh often, love much.
  2. If it doesn’t make me feel fabulous I don’t want it.
  3. The greater the storm the brighter the rainbow.
  4. Love yourself like your not waiting for someone else to do it
  5. It’s not about the size you wear but how you wear your size.

Hope you enjoyed the read 🌸

My prom story – Throwback

I left school hell of a long time ago…. 2002 to be exact.

Round about this time was the last few exams and then prepping for the big event which was PROM.

So I had been beat up by a group of girls a month before and mum and me had bought my dress in a charity shop for £17.50 and i really felt special in it but because my confidence had been knocked severely it wasn’t quite the exciting night I had hoped for.

I was a bag of nerves, that feeling of oh my god I’m gonna barf on me pretty dress but luck was on my side. That was before we had even picked up my mates.

Got there unscathed and smiles when I saw all my mates.

Photos were taken outside the venue, this one above was me and one of my besties at school Soph. I didn’t have an ounce of make up on as my face still hurt from getting beat up but my sis did my hair really lovely so I half felt like a princess.

I probably stayed for half the night and then dad had to come pick me up because I started to panic.

I can actually say I went though and it’s good to look back at pics of everyone else looking gorgeous too.

This was our last day of school with my bestie Jessica aka Trev. Still besties now and I’m blessed that we still are just as close.

Thought since most year 11s will be going to their proms this month it’ll be good to chat about mine.

Thanks for stopping by
