I am having some well needed ‘me time’ before I get a few bits done.
But I thought I would say hello to you all as I have been really quiet since returning from my holiday.
My bestie has finally given me my next instalment of Grey’s Anatomy- I’m on series five and I’m loving it….so much is changing but it’s impulsive viewing.
So here are some amazing quotes to keep us all uplifted and positive…
By leaving behind your old self & taking a leap of faith into the unknown, you find out what you are truly capable of becoming.
Work your hardest. Think your smartest. Dream your biggest. Be your greatest. Love you fullest. Smile your brightest.
Laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears & keep reminding ourselves that everything happens for a reason.
I am finally starting to believe in this but like anything it’s taking time.
So what would you like to see on my blog guys??? All suggestions appreciated.
Until next time 😃
Hellooooooo! Firstly I am sooo sorry for my silence.
Since returning from Salou I have been soul searching a little plus work has been madness I worked a week straight and by the time I got to my day off I was shattered. I have missed chatting to you all and I thought it was about time I said something.
I have included It’s A Beautiful Day by Michael Buble. Not only does it remind me of my holiday it is also rather uplifting and I thought I would share some happy vibes. It is gloomy and wet here in London today.
A friend of mine recommended me an amazing book called ‘The Wish’ which is making me feel a lot more positive about many things. I may even write a post dedicated to that once I have finished it. I feel like I am emotionally opening up which can be a good and a bad thing, as I am an extremely emotional soul.
Here is a quote that sums up everyday life.
Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in every day
Anyway I look forward to chatting with you all once again.
Until next time 😃
So I’m in Spain…having a fantastic time off to Barcelona tomorrow.
I have to be short and sweet but I just wanted to mention the big news about Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
Whether you love him or loathe him he’s been an influential manager within English Football. An awesome career!! Happy retirement Mr Ferguson I know many Manchester United fans will miss you.
Until next time

10. I know Sheryl sent me this but she has to be my final person. Not only is she an awesome friend but an amazing blogger check her site out here
I started writing this post last week but I haven’t been feeling great so I’ve been a little slack I do apologise.
I would also like to thank Matt, Sheryl and Tegan who have all nominated me for various blogger awards. I really am humbled now I am almost back to normal I shall be back.
The Community Pool is an amazing post that brings bloggers together.
Until recently I’d never really taken part, I had read the rules many times but never joined in.
So I posted asking for feedback. Since my WordPress journey began I’ve had a right mixture of positive and negative comments.
I have learn’t to embrace constructive criticism and I would like to think in doing so I am becoming a better person and blogger. I have also learn’t to ignore the nastiness, this is not always easy but I’ve learn’t you can’t please everyone. I know I’m not everyone’s cup of tea and that’s totally fine, but when people get personal that’s bullying.
Thanks to the ‘Community Pool’ I feel like I’ve got my mojo back.
Thanks to Tegan for her suggestion I’ve changed my background theme and I couldn’t be happier with the way it looks.
It takes a fresh eye to tell you the truth, my original theme was dated and tame. One of the main reasons I had kept it was because I liked the colour. I previously tried to change the theme and it had ended up altering my pages strangely. But now I have found a theme that suits me so thanks Tegan.
It does make me smile when I get some encouragement. Tegan sent me a comment saying how my new theme had made all the difference. Which is nice to hear.
I have also found a new friend and a fab blog to read in Mrs Robertson over at Avoiding Neverland.
‘The Community Pool’ is a pretty inspirational place for all bloggers. It doesn’t matter if you’ve only just started or whether you’re a veteran blogger. Each of us can do with some feedback and encouragement every once in a while. I have made friends, made changes, gained followers and found new blogs to read/follow myself.
As I’m in a relatively good mood I would like to say what would you like to see on my blog?
Also any questions for me?
I shall blog the results next week before I fly to Spain.
Until next time
Firstly, I would like to start by congratulating Wigan Athletic on reaching their first ever FA Cup final, after beating Millwall 2-0 at Wembley yesterday.
It’s an awful shame that a first in the clubs history is marred by violence and abusive behaviour.
Today’s back pages should show jubilant Wigan Athletic players and supporters but instead we have a collection of thugs causing havoc.
Following the violence 10 people were arrested, many supporters were left bloodied and a number of youngsters were in tears.
Millwall FC said it could not “allow the actions of a mindless minority” to undermine efforts made to lose the club’s reputation for hooliganism.
I feel sorry for the real Millwall fans because these hooligans who probably sat in the pub all day getting tanked up before the game just wanted a fight.
How many youngsters went to Wembley to witness a semi-final game ended up in tears. Many of them are probably too scared to attend a football match again.
The FA have said what happened is unacceptable and will launch an inquiry. I just hope they do something about this as it seems to be a running trend with a number of Millwall supporters, who are continuously ruining it for the real fans and the club.
Why they felt the need to fight amongst themselves is beyond me.
England will face Ireland in a friendly at Wembley next month. The security at Wembley will be re-evaluated and it also seems that many fans could lose out, as this game may NOT go on general sale following yesterday’s incidents.
Football is supposed to be a sport the whole family can enjoy. This violence has to stop, not only are English football fans getting a bad reputation it also does nothing for the beautiful game.
I’d love to hear your thoughts?
Until next time 😃
So many of my favourite TV shows had ended and I decided to find something new. From tweets, friends and colleagues I kept hearing about Breaking Bad. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I thought to myself too many people have mentioned this show. So shortly after I ordered series 1-3 as it was on sale and away I went.
When I first started series one I was like what the hell is this. A respectable teacher with a good family whose brother in law is a cop for the DEA. So why would this respectable law abiding citizen risk everything by cooking crystal meth in his spare time with a former student. It soon becomes apparent as to why Walt is doing this, it may not be honourable but his motives are from the heart. I won’t say why in case you decide to watch.
Although when I got to the end of series two and the beginning of series three I honestly wasn’t sure how it could go on any longer. What I will say is Breaking Bad is written excellently and you are never prepared for the twists it takes.
Having completed series three I have now hit a brick wall until I get my hands on series four. I am also told that series five will be the last, in a way I am sad but sometimes a good thing has to bow out when on fine form.
So for now I am completely hooked on series three of Grey’s Anatomy. The turbulent relationship between Dr McDreamy (Derek Shepherd) and Meredith Grey will have you on the edge of your seat. He’s the kind of guy most girls dream of. Is he perfect? Hell no he can also be an arse but that’s part of the fun.
I blogged about discovering Dr McDreamy when my bestie introduced me to series one quite a while ago incase you missed it Discovering McDreamy
So do you enjoy Breaking Bad and or Grey’s Anatomy?
Do you have a series that I should see?
Anyway, until next time 😃
