Monster Cold!! Dun dun dun!

Well I was off work for 2 days because I felt crap. I went back in again yesterday (Friday) and since I was in the literacy / role play area I really struggled because it involves alot of singing, reading and talking and my voice was threatening to disappear. I woke up early this morning to find my tongue and throat in agony (lower down, not tonsil stumpy pain) and I had no voice at all.

So this morning I whispered (painfully) a happy anniversary to Daniel. We're supposed to be going out for tea and I was going to dress up etc but I just feel like a phlegmy person. We're also supposed to be seeing Tangled beforehand but we'll see how we go.

On another note, we've moved the guinea pigs onto the dining room just so they get a bit more used to us. Luckily I can't smell at the moment!!

Day 50 A letter to your reflection in the mirror

Hello you ill person. You are lucky to have nice colleagues who want you to be healthy and advised you to take today off for rest. Well done for being arsed to shower and clean your teeth and face.

Me x

I suppose I've finished these now so I can actually write a blog about my life (which isn't that interesting).

My happiest moment today was finding that Topshop have loads of lovely vintage style clothes to peruse and they are doing free next day delivery. I shall be discussing the financial terms with my dear boyfriend later :D.

Also, One Born Every Minute normally makes me happy but with one lady chucking her guts up and another constantly saying "blood" and "bleeding" constantly it grossed me out instead. Urrrrgh. So I bagan watching Gilmore Girls instead. Much more civililsed.

Okay, I'm off to cocoon myself in a duvet/

Day 49 Hopes, dreams and plans for the next 365 days

I have already done this really.

I hope to save lots of money. We'd like to get married at some point and be able to afford little sproglings too. First we need to pay off our debts, then we need to be able to afford to get engaged! It'll happen. We just need to tighten our belts. It's better to know that we'll do it properly some day than rush and have a wedding that we're both not happy with / not have everyone we love there.

Beyond this I would like to enjoy my job. Massive tick here so far.

I would also like to go on holiday. I have 2 weeks booked off so far. The centre is closed for a week in August for a big clean and I have some time off at easter I've booked.

We'd also like to do more to the house.

Last day tomorrow x

Day 48 A photo of you right now


You can't have a photo of me right now because I look like a knackered old lady quite frankly! It's been such a long week (and it's only Thursday) because we've had Ofsted for 2 days, a monster of a 2 hour staff meeting yesterday from 6 til 8pm, lots of new children joining the centre, taking on more responsibilities and so on. Loving the fact it's Friday tomorrow though!!

Bye bye Bloggy

Day 47 Birthday wish list

I will try to write a birthday list but I still have 8 months to go! On my 25th birthday I ould like...

Nice jeans - kept far away from my work uniform so I don't feel like they'll only get covered in paint / dribble / breakfast

Tonnes of LUSH


Books - hopefully Terry Pratchett's Colour of Magic b/c my lovely Dad got me the DVD instead

Gluten free CAKE. Actual birthday cake with jam and icing.


A nice big bag to carry all my crap to work in. But not Cath Kidston as everyone in the place is obsessessed and I don't fancy having a slight variation of someone else's bag.

Things for our house - Gibbley things as my Stepmum would say. Pictures and frames and candles and cushions etc

World peace?

Ok, it's fairly vague but who know's what I'll get 8 months from now! Sorry for being flakey with the postings but I was in bed by 8 last night and am so exhausted with having a cold etc. Only 3 to go!

Day 46 Photos of personal things in your life (pets, family, house, ect.)

I am feeling insanely lazy again so you're just going to end up with pictures that already exist on my laptop.


This is Dan and he is awesome. 'Nuff said.

Mum. Utter cheese.

Stepdad (and his twin nieces)

Becky - Sister.

Dad and little little sister Evie. There are no photo's in existence of my stepmum. Well 3 in total and all belong to my dad / her parents...

Pets: I'll admit that I'm a crazy pet lady. We'd like a dog but not until we've had sprogs and have the time to take care of one.

Caramac the gorgeous, inquisitive gerbil!

Bounty is Caramac's cagemate and is very friendly. She's the easiest to pick up and likes a good cuddle.

Oreo the black and white pied gerbil. She is very terretorial but very cute.

Butterfinger shares with Oreo. She is shy but loves nose kisses :D/

Chuck is made of awesome. He liked to watch tv and youtube (example here).

Rodney! Likes to eat hay and curl up in a ball when we cuddle him.

I don't have pictures of our house so I may save that for another blog entry.
