JANUARY MONTHLY FAVOURITES

Even though there is only 31 days of January- this month seems to have gone on and on and on. How we can’t wait for it to end….

but first let’s talk through my favourites.

SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH THE ORIGINAL SERIES

I remember how I raced home from school to make sure I put this on before my brother hogged the remote control  when he got in.

I was pleasantly surprised a few weeks ago to see that E4 was playing reruns of this. So I am reliving my youth of when I wished I could have a talking cat like Salem and another world through our airing cupboard on top of our stairs.

  • Having my Niece over and going through all the nursery rhymes you can think of and watching her get excited when I knew all the words. She’s precious our Daisy
  • Got to speak to my Dad on the phone for 45 mins. This is good because he has Dementia so his attention span is usually poor. I love hearing his voice and he still calls me Hol so there’s still a glimmer of hope.
  • Going to my Cousin 40th Party this weekend just gone. The music was all the oldies and it was a excuse to have a few archers and lemonade. The hangover the next day was minimal so thumbs up.

OLLY MURS – EXCUSES

I have always liked Olly Murs style of singing. All his songs are really catchy. He’ll always get a Darlin‘ in there if you really listen…quite funny actually. It’s good to see him back on our screen in The Voice too.

ALIEN GIFT SET BY MUGLER

Oh my goodness me…after my friend sent me a little sample in a box swap we done I said to my Mum did she wanna chip in and get this gift set with me and it is the most sensual scent my nose have inhaled. Let’s just say I smell bloody lush.

finally I always leave you with a quote so this is my favourite at the mo.


I hope you’ve had some fab moments throughout January. Feel free to share them in the comments below.

September in my own words

I haven’t really had a September if I’m honest with you. Currently writing this in my hospital bed at nearly midnight. Body is just not cooperating with me read my post here to see whats been going on.

Anyways i wanted to write what did bring a smile to my face this month.

I have never met a woman quite like my Mum. Who will drop everything when someone is in need. She always makes me smile/laugh daily. Without Mum I’d definitely be a broken girl ( i mean woman – I’m nearly 33 believe it or not )

If you are a regular reader of mine you’ll know that a new electric wheelchair was something that I’ve wanted for a long time to help with my mobility issues and i needed to raise enough money for it. I have now got it and although I’ve only been on it a handful of times inbetween my hospital stays its made so much difference.

You don’t know how much of a favourite my bed is to me. It is so comfy and when i can’t move about on bad days my bed makes it all better. Having my home comforts is paramount. you really can’t fit in a holdall when hospital visits are needed. Its really true what they say there really is no place like home.

FILMS THAT CHEERED ME UP

Pretty woman because it’s such a great snuggle down film and i just admit Mr Gere is just a gorgeous human being and who isn’t jealous of Julia’s legs and luscious curls.

Bridget Jones Baby. I have watched this film a few times and it still makes me laugh. I always wanted to be Bridget cos she always ended up with Mr Darcy, lucky cow.

Lastly I’ll leave you with a song that means alot to me.

Hope you’ve all had a fab september and here’s to autumn in bloom in October and my birthday.

What a lovely weekend

Although the weather wasn’t too great i managed to enjoy my weekend.

It started off with a visit from my future sister-in-law Kerry and my cute niece Daisy.

We had some entertainment with all the songs that Daisy is learning at nursery. Shes only 1 and a half I can’t get over how she remembers things and she pronounces my name beautifully now which totally makes me smile.

On Saturday evening I was invited out for a few drinks with some friends as there was some music on at our local pub. It was an excuse to dress up a little. Typical woman I dressed all in black all apart from my boots, which were these pink beauties.

I really had a good time and to top it off at the end of the night i had some cheese and chips. Haven’t had them in years but the takeaway was still open on the journey home so it was rude not to.

It was nice to go out and nobody made me feel crap about being in a wheelchair. Makes me feel more comfortable about going out again of a Friday or Saturday night.

Sunday was a nice pj day with some cheesy films on Netflix and Amazon prime video.

The only downside to the weekend was a biggish spot decided to land on my chin. Never mind that’s what concealer is for.

Hope you all had an awesome weekend

Drunken Times – looking back

Nothing beats a night in with your Mum and your favourite tipple putting the world to rights and reminiscing about the days when I was always out on the razzle…

  • Having a big bottle of WKD before going on out…
  • putting on umpteen outfits before deciding the first one was just fine.
  • Not being able to have the music on too loud in my room as Dad would shout up he was trying to watch the TV. I didn’t record the top 40 for nothing.
  • Making sure you went to the bank sober to get out your money for the night as anything could happen if we were to go once we were fuelled with alcohol.

Some of my best nights out were with my sister…even though there’s an 8 year age difference it doesn’t seem it.

Our Dad would say you best wear a coat and my sister saying I don’t want to pay £3 to hang it up. She always got away with it but not me I took one and paid too. Being the baby of the family I was wrapped up in cotton wool.

When there was someone’s birthday it was an excuse to dress up and there was a fair few of us too so we were out in force.

Here are a few pics of me and my sis from the ages of 18 til about 23

How I have grown up and how I can look back and say I enjoyed my ‘Just Legal’ years and have plenty of stories to tell. I could probably fill a book with them actually

Now there’s an Idea for my next book.

Whatever you’ve been doing this weekend I hope you’ve got memories to keep.
