Old Tricks

Yesterday I did something I haven’t done in a while.

I went skating.

Not Rollerdisco skating, but on inline skates. I haven’t even been to a skate park since school when my boyfriend of the time was an avid skater and we all spent summers eating ice cream at the top of the ramps and learning how to do tricks.

Comfy and Fierce! See my outfit on Lookbook

Ok, so the boys did the tricks, I mainly sat at the top of the ramp eating ice cream, but it was fun all the same.

I was surprised how quickly it came back to me, although I guess we have been rollerdisco-ing a lot recently.

Ash, as usual, was doing all his little tricks, spinning, skating backwards and snaking.

I have almost got the hang of snaking but still need a bit more practice.

Both myself and Ash want to become a lot more active and get out of the house more now that the weather is finally becoming warmer, so I should have a lot more chance to hone my skills.

Still a little wobbly…

But before that I have lots and lots of sewing to do!

A Famous Cousin

Yesterday I went straight from work to the south bank to meet up with my aunt, her partner and my cousin.

There was an Alternative Families festival thing on at the South bank Centre and, with my cousin being adopted and living with 2 mums, they thought they would take a trip down to see what was going on!

There was lots of cool things for kids to do all day, with alternative fairy tails (such as King and King and Tango Makes Three) talks about alternative families and much more.

We even found a jolly farmer with some baby animals we were allowed to feed and hold! I wont lie, I almost stole one of the lambs because they were so darn cute!

Looking extremely tired from my long week at work…

Tiggs (as we call her) managed to be picked for an interview and they used her footage, probably because of the most adorable quote ever:

‘Anyone can be a family, as long as they love each other’

We are all so proud of her, she’s come a long long way since she was first welcomed into our family when she was quiet and extremely shy. Now she is such a bright, bubbly, loud and completely lovely little girl! I definitely think she spoke some very wise words there and her mums should be very proud. In fact we all should be, and most definitely are, proud.

She was also asked if she would like to appear on a future TV show called ‘My Life’ which she was very excited about. Again it is a show following Alternative families and sounds very exciting.

Tiggy kept saying ‘This is the best day of my life!’

I think she’s a star in the making!

The news video can be found below with her adorable quote, another cute boy and a book about Penguins! 😀

From Cinderella to King and King

‘Till next time!


A little bit of drama…

Pretty Smiles!

A lot has happened since my last post…I’m definitely managing to live my life to the full, only hopefully i wont create a bad name for myself.

This wasn't such a good idea...

Sunday night a guy came over for a few films. Unfortunately he’s a friends ex and she got word that he’d stayed over.  It’s not like i’m getting with him or anything, he’s not exactly my type. She came up to me last night and started having a go at me because you ‘never get with a friends ex’. Personally i’ve never understood that rule, i mean Ok if they’re like your best friend and theres a lot of animosity between them and the guy, but seriously, i barely talk to this girl anyway. I really felt like i was back in secondary school again. Surely if two people fall for each other then no-ones got a right to break them apart. I would never dream telling the Ex’s new girlfriend (who was kind of a friend) to back off despite how much they’ve hurt me, i don’t have that right. Nobody does.

Boob is trying to escape...

Yesterday was average, just at uni doing uni things. Then i went out to party. Unfortunately i was on wine, which i’ve figured really does not end well. I barely remember anything, and the things i do remember are really fuzzy.  I did how ever manage to get with a guy i’d been talking to all winter. I hope he’s not just after one thing as i actually think i could really like him. I guess i’ll find out.

Today has been a typical hangover day. Didn’t get up till late, didn’t get dressed for quite a while, failed at doing any work in the library. Now i’m having to quickly do 1000 words for our Choreography Proposal which needs to be handed in tomorrow. I’m so tired it’s likely to be crap, but oh well. I don’t think it goes towards my grade. Lets hope not anyway.

Better actually get on and write this proposal so i can go to bed.

It is going to be so hard to get up for a 9 O’clock tomorrow.

Stay happy!
