An Awesome Feeling…

On Saturday 14th December 2013 I got up early on my day off and headed to Bromley Intu centre to Christmas wrap and raise awareness on Make A Wish Foundation.

It was a lovely morning, the morning crew consisted of me, Amanda, Michael and Claire. Plus the awesome Emma from Make A Wish. It really was good fun getting festive, wrapping presents and raising awareness. Very early on in the morning we met a lovely woman who looked like she’d seen a ghost. Her son had benefited from Make A Wish Foundation and she was eager to give back. Her story was both beautiful and heart-breaking. Emma was awesome with her. Later on, we met others who had benefited from the charity and a lady who had helped grant a wish.

A truly enlightening day that I thoroughly enjoyed. I hope to do more for Make A Wish Foundation next year. Today I found out we raised an awesome £550. I am still hoping some kind friends, family, colleagues and followers will add to my personal page http://www.justgiving.com/Hayley-Thorpe1

Make A Wish Make A Change…..

So on Saturday 14th December 2014 I shall be giving up some of my time to wrap presents in a local shopping centre for Make A Wish Foundation. I decided that I want to raise some extra money for this amazing charity. So I have set up a Just Giving page http://www.justgiving.com/Hayley-Thorpe1
so my friends, family, colleagues and followers can help me support the charity. I would love to wrap all of your presents for you but I just won’t see all of you, seeing as we all live in different places.

I am sorry for my silence again…I have been a busy bee but I hope to check in with you all whenever I can. Thanks again to all the wonderful and supportive friends I have made just on WordPress. It’s been a testing time but I won’t be beaten by negativity and pure cruelness. I really do appreciate whatever you can spare I have set myself a target of £100 without whatever I get on the day and I already have £15.00.

Anyway I shall love you and leave you with a quote that I believe we should all be saying to ourselves.

Start every day with a new hope, leave bad memories behind and have faith for a better tomorrow.

Everyone Needs A Little Boost.

Hey Guys,

I feel awful for neglecting you all, the sad thing is I keep meaning to post. Although I have been a tad busy in lots of different ways. This week I promise my Think About It Thursday will be finished and published.

In the meantime a good friend posted this quote on Twitter and I believe it’s something we all need to tell ourselves once in a while….

Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.

Just a little inspiration….

Hello I am so sorry it’s been so long. I won’t bore you with reasons. I will document part of my trip to France at some point. I think I need a good 48 hour day lol.

I just wanted to share this quote with you all.

I am trying to embrace positivity again. Had a few testing times but I know I can get back. I would like to also take a moment to thank the truly amazing Matt. Not only is he an awesome blogger but a true friend…check out the Kingdom https://thematticuskingdom.wordpress.com/

It’s Thursday so I should finish and add on today’s Think About It Thursday before the day is out….

Inspirational Monday #4

When life gives you every reason to be negative,
think of one good reason to be positive.

Oh how true this statement is.
Although some days finding that positive sure is hard.
I sometimes think we’re looking in the wrong place completely, whereas other days it’s there like a beacon.

Have a fantastic Monday…..:) I guess I should get up.

Think About It Thursday

When I first discovered this writing prompt I was intrigued. I have been trying to do more regular posts and this was like a beacon at the right time. So I should be at least posting Inspirational Monday’s and Think About It Thursday’s each week. (SHE SAYS)

At the time I was busy and therefore couldn’t sit down and answer the questions, so now I am taking the time to answer the questions from last week and this week. I think that means I still have missed a week????? I can always catch up if anyone’s interested LOL!

What does Nature mean to you?
Nature is the beautiful outdoors, the countryside, the wildlife. Taking some time out to sit outside among nature itself is calming.

What do you hate?
There are a number of things I hate spiders- because I don’t like them crawling on me and they look terrifying even if they are tiny creatures. Rudeness- just plain upsets me there is no god damn need for it. Bullying- for those of you who have been reading my blog posts for a while now you’ll understand this. The last thing I will say is I hate seeing people I care about down or upset, it breaks my heart.

What annoys you?
Cheating, lying, bullying and the fact that this world can be cruel at times.

What is your least favorite holiday?
Valentines Day!

Do you Exercise?
Now I am going to be honest. I was in a real good flow before I went to Spain but since my return I have been extremely lazy. Although in my defence my work shifts are all over the place. So I don’t have a steady pattern. I am hoping to correct this once I have returned from France.

If you were to go to prison, what would it be for?
Well I hope I don’t ever have to. But if I were to go to prison it would be to protect someone I love. So a close friend or family member. I would put my life on the line for those I hold dear to me.

What is the name of your imaginary friend?
With my strange imagination I am a little sad to say I have never had an imaginary friend. But I think it would be a he called BOB!

Schrödinger’s Cat.. Dead or Alive? Dead!!! Just because!!!

Where did you meet your best friend?
I met Emma through a boyband who are no longer around. We were waiting in the same place at the same time and got chatting. We had both seen each other at various events but hadn’t really spoken properly until 2002-3 ish Haha!! We are quite in sync. We like lots of the same things, like Irish boybands, our love for theatre and we have the same middle name Louise.

When you wake up, what is the first thing you see?
Honestly! Normally my phone as I am regularly turning OFF my alarm.

Also feel free to leave your answers in my comment box I am intrigued to see what everyone else comes up with.

Thank You!

I just wanted to take the time to say Thank You to each and every person that has liked,followed or commented on my blog.
It’s strange how things change. A short while ago I was ready to pull the plug on this blog. Thanks to pure nastiness. Yesterday I overtook my current record for follows in a day. This made me smile and made me realise there are some lovely people out there who seem to like what I have to say.

So thank you to every single one of you who have made me realise that blogging can still be fun. I have made some awesome friends and I have found some fantastic blogs along the way.

I feel that Inspirational Monday’s have not only made me feel better and more positive. They seem to be getting a lot of views which is nice. If you’d like to take part feel free to comment on my page with your link. I am also still happy to take on Guest Posts.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Until next time 🙂
