Day 18 Set or share a goal

Happy Halloween! It's also my little sisters 7th birthday! Today is going to be a short update because I have a cold :(.

My main goal at the moment is to get a grown up job and save money! I have a new part time job to keep me going until then. Beyond that is marriage and small people.

Apologies for being lazy.

Day 17 A photo that makes you sad

This is a 19 year old me standing in our new (now old) flat. This photo is bittersweet for me because it was the begining of Dan and I being free from our parents, getting to do what we liked, when we liked. I'm sad because this was pre-uni and we no longer live there. Our house is much better but we made so many memories there that it makes me feel sad to have let it go. Now we drive past it almost ever day and although Dan doesn't get sentimentally attached, sometimes I wave like a crazy person in the flats general direction. Also, I'd like to be 19 again please.

Day 16 Provide pictures of 5 celebrity crushes

I had to have a really good think about this one. At first I struggled to think of 5 and then my boyfriend (of all people) listed the many celeb crushes I've had over the years, telling me that I'd have difficulty picking just 5!

In no particular order -

1. Will Smith

Ok, I found the most pervy picture of Will Smith in all his gorgeousness! MMmmm. This celeb crush I oddly share with my Step Mum but it's ok because he is beautiful.

2. George Clooney

George Clooney at event of The 80th Annual Academy Awards 

It might seem a little obvious and he's only a year younger than my Mum but he is the ultimate silver fox! I can't help it. There's just something about him.

3. Jason Statham

Every girl needs a bit of rough. Jason Statham is mine! His body is fit and he plays interesting characters I fall in love with. YUM. He is currently dating a Victoria's Secret model (boo!).

4. Matt Damon

Being gorgeous, funny and down to earth makes Matt Damon the perfect man. Plus he does charity work and married someone out of the biz.

5. Zachary Levi

This guy plays the lead role in 'Chuck'. My guinea pig is named after this character because we love this show. He plays a computer geek spy but, like most of these lovely men, gets snapped up by a beautiful blonde :(.

Some of the pictures wouldn't move to the right places but the sentiment is there. Day 16 completed!

Day 15 A letter to someone you wish you could meet

Dear Greg Wallace (of Masterchef fame)

I am obsessed with your programme and your fabulous comments about food. You seem amazingly down to earth and I am jealous of all the lovely people you meet and food you taste. When visiting a surgeon about my cataracts I read an article about you (between 20 eye tests and being chatted to by an elderly couple) and you seemed so lovely (but rich).

Please could we share a pudding sometime?

Love from me x x x x x x x

Day 14 A song from your childhood

When I was really little my Mum was obsessed with Simply Red. I swear it was the only tape in her car! I can remember sitting in my car seat listening to this song over and over. She also loved Michael Jackson but I think that tape entered the car at a later date :) So here we go, Simply Red's Money's too tight to mention.

Day 13 Whatever tickles your fancy

My extremely talented boyfriend (who IS probably reading this) made a fab video featuring our graduation to the Duck Sauce song (Barbara Streisand). I love the fact that my name is in a song. Anonymity is out of the window in this case! Hope you enjoy.

Day 12 Post a self-portrait

Just catching up with posts since graduation was a bit of a whirlwind. Was fab to see my Dad and all my Uni friends. My parents didnt kill each other after not seeing one another for years but it was a tad cringey and uncomfortable. Overall it went pretty well!

Now marvel at my artistic talents (harhar)

Day 11 Share your favourite recipe

Go here:

This cake is gorgeous and requires no cooking whatsoever! Everyone who tries it loves it and we've made it a fair few times. Sadly it is FULL to the brim with calories and now I have a wheat intolerance so Gluten free digestives for me but it is simply delicious.

Day 10 A letter to the person you hate most or caused you a lot of pain

Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I was a complete nervous wreck at my interview and then when I came home and the adrenalin had gone I just wanted to sleep forever. Apologies!

This challenge is a bit tricky too!

Dear Doctors of the UK,

You are only doing your job but you basically suck. I can barely walk into a hospital without breaking into a nervous sweat, even if I am not going to be operated on or have my vital fluid stolen (they should be in my body where they belong). Having had so many operations and been treated as patient X in front of all of your students has wound me up beyond belief! No one looks their best when they're in hospital and being handed your pants in a sandwich bag is just plain humiliating! (Although hunky doctor of appendectomy fame didn't seem too bothered... And is therefore exempt).

The worst part is that I will soon have to meet with you again to have lenses placed in my eyes, cataracts removed and a hip replacement. Please try to be nice even though it is in your nature to think you are better than me.

Not so much thanks,

Patient X

Day 8 A photo of you taken recently

This photo was taken pretty recently. This is me holding Chuck one of our lovely guinea pigs (Rodney is the other one)!

They are probably about 3 and a half months old now but when we got them at 6 weeks Chuck was passed on to me and I immediately fell in love with his tri-colour face :D.

As you can see, they are currently outside but we have just ordered an indoor cage so that they don't have to endure an English winter.

DAY 7 A YouTube video you find funny

In light of watching the new series of 'The Apprentice' here is a montage of Sir Alan Sugar and his minions, jumbled to sound funny. Alan Sugar is worth £8!

DAY 6 List of what you ate today

I'm just going to give you a list of what I have eaten so far today, so that I don't feel guilty for not posting at all!

  • Covent Garden Plum Tomato and Basil Soup
  • Quavers
  • Tea x 2
  • Tea Pig's Chocolate Flake tea
Not much, but I'm freaking out over my interview next week. Another place decided to ring me to offer me another interview (part time work) for the week after whilst I was trying to prepare for the first one. Slept for about 8 hours last night which was awesome after not sleeping for 3 days on the trot. As you can see my appetite is also suffering :(. Hopefully I'll be back to my normal food-guzzling self soon!

DAY 5 A letter to an ex

To ex-person,

You are an ex for a reason. I am having a much better time now. It was a long time ago. I'm over it.

Not so much love,

DAY 4 A photo of you taken over ten years ago

Originally uploaded by smiley_laydee
I am posting again to take my mind away from scary and more pressing matters...

This photo was taken much more than 10 years ago. It's on our joggler in the kitchen and it always makes me smile. Gappy teeth galore! Parents always seem to take pictures of their children in the bath. I thought I'd save you from seeing the potty photo!

DAY 3 Your favourite film

Die Hard

Disregard the creepy voice over man, this is an awesome film. I know I was probably supposed to pick a Disney film but since this is one of our fail-safe movies I thought it was the better choice. Perfect for Christmas (and any other time in our househould!) I first watched this when Dan and I started going out and we've watched all of the others since. I'm not going to tell you the plot, you'll just have to watch it!

Yippee kai yay Motherfuckera!

(if someone could tell me how to embed the photo that would be great!)

DAY 1 Introduce yourself / List your likes and dislikes

I'm Aimee. Better known as Meemo / Meems / Aimz to family and friends. My last name plagues me. For some reason no matter how many times I correct people I will always be referred to as 'Hannah', So there we go, my first dislike and we are a mere 3 sentences in. I also know that my surname is a palindrome and yes if Dan and I ever get married I will still have a Christian name as my surname (Kelly - if you're interested).

Aside from this, I am 24. Currently an unemployed teacher and hating every minute of it. Every minute that doesn't involve drinking tea and watching Gilmore Girls re-runs that is... I'm hopeful though.

I'm looking forward to settling down. I live with my boyfriend and best friend of 5 years. We share 4 gerbils and 2 guinea pigs and hope in the future to own a border collie named Copernicus (a la Back to the Future).

Ok, enough of that. Onto likes and dislikes:

LIKES: tea, baths, the smell of baking, gluten free cupcakes, gluten free pancake mix, fruit, sushi, Wagamama's, reading under a duvet, gerbera's, songs with piano parts, raspberry jelly, Gilmore Girls, my family, dressing up

DISLIKES: hospitals, needles, my retainer, taking tablets, how quickly my house gets messy, massive spiders, ironing, map reading, rude people, supermarkets

That will do for now I think!
