Moving Home… 4 Weeks In.

So a month ago on the 8th I moved back home to my parents house, along with Arran, in preparation for when baby comes (Still no sign of him! he’s now 4 days late!!!)
The last 4 weeks seem to have flown by, maybe because we have been keeping ourselves busy or maybe just cause of our imminent arrival, I’m not really sure, either way I can’t believe it has been a month already!

Living back at home hasn’t been too bad and I feel like Arran has adjusted to it pretty well also, I was worried that it would be awful, losing that freedom of having your own house and doing whatever we want whenever we want, but it has felt more or less the same, granted we don’t have as much space to ourselves here and have to live in a way that is considerate towards my parents but on the whole things have been a lot easier than I thought they were going to be.

The main reason for the move was so that once baby is here we would have the support of all my family, seeing as all of my family live within close proximity of each other it makes being able to drop on someone for help a lot easier than had we still been living in Burton, where we had no family or friends, I also didn’t want to be alone with a newborn once Arran went back to work.

We will also save quite a bit of money by moving back into my parents house which means we can hopefully save up for a nicer house in a nicer area, I will hopefully be able to go back to work even if its only part time a lot sooner than if we had been on our own which means we will have even more money saved up and of course another big thing is we will be able to have time to ourselves without having to always be mom and dad cause there will usually be someone on hand to help look after baby, which will be nice cause there are quite a few movies coming out in the next few weeks that I would love to go see!

So yeah, on a whole moving back home hasn’t been too bad, a lot easier than I thought it would be, but it is definitely not a permanent solution and once baby is here and we’ve had a month or two to adjust we will probably start re-assessing our options and maybe look at getting our own place somewhere close by, that way we have the best of both worlds, our own house and family support close by!

Fingers crossed!

Sunflowers!!

So it’s been less than a month I think since I planted my sunflowers, they are now biggish and we (me and my mom) finally got around to planting them in the garden last Sunday (23.04.17) I planted 75 seeds in trays and roughly half of them germinated, we then planted the 12 best ones in our garden, 6 red and 6 yellow! We still have some good looking ones left over which I will be giving to family, this is usually what I do when I plant a ton of seeds, cause who doesn’t love to be gifted Sunflowers!! 🌻🌻

Some got eaten by snails though as I’ve been keeping them outside in their pots so they can get the most of the nice sun we have been having!

Anyway, here are some pics of how they looked before we planted them in the ground!

And here are some pics of the ones we planted in the garden!

Sadly none of my dwarf red ones grew, not sure why, I did the same with them as with my others, I guess they were just dud seeds, was quite looking forward to seeing what those ones looked like as well, but nevermind, try again next year!

These giant ones though are supposed to grow up to 14ft… will be interesting to see how big they do grow and I will definitely post updates on them here too!

Enjoy 🌻🌻🌻

Happily Ever After? :D

For real this time…

So… It all started a few months ago, my best friend, Nick, told me he loved me, at the time I was already in a relationship, that I thought was the one (I was wrong), so obviously I rejected him and im ashamed to say that I used the line “I only love you as a friend”, of course I fancied him, he is a very sexy, funny and caring guy, but I didn’t want to admit it cause I thought I was already in love, but I now realise that I wasn’t, I also was afraid that things would get weird between us…

Anyway, everything went on as they were, except now I knew that the flirting actually did mean something, it wasn’t just playing, he genuinely meant something, I think him telling me how he felt brought us closer together, when me and Gilly broke up he was right there with me to help me feel better and take my mind off things, sadly though I only had him for a day or two cause I had to come home for summer, even after I came home though he was checking up on me to make sure I was ok 🙂

Our relationship started one weekend in Stafford, he invited me up for a chilled weekend playing games, which we did, originally my intentions were completely innocent but then I started realising that he is my best friend and an awesome guy, and my intentions became less than innocent ;P fortunately his were too, he initiated but I set the conditions of it being just casual, though after that weekend I knew it was going to be more than casual, it was the best weekend I had, had in a very long time 😀 and then it all just sort o snowballed from there, I’ve spent my summer working and going to visit him and he’s been working and visiting me 😀

We of course are now officially boyfriend and girlfriend and it is very much not casual, I love him and I know he loves me, he is amazing and makes me laugh hysterically at the most stupidest things, I don’t know how he does it but he does, he makes me happy and above all he is my best friend, I can tell him anything, this is the most open I have ever been in a relationship and it feels so nice not to worry about where you stand or how they will react to what you say 🙂

I love him ❤

Anyway, that was my way of telling you guys that I have a new boyfriend and he is awesome!

Hope you’re all as happy in your lives as I am in mine right now!

Thunder… :( 

So as I sit here writing this it’s half 2 in the morning and for the last hour I’ve been watching two storm fronts come over…. 

The rain has just started pouring down, the Lightning is lighting ups the sky and the thunder is apocalyptically loud…. I must say though that when it comes to thunder storms I am the biggest wuss going, I have a love hate relationship with them, I think they’re awesome cause nature bitches, but, then they also scare the crap out of me cause they are so loud! I also have this fear that my house will get struck by lightning, I know it’s very unlikely but still it’s not an irrational thought…

Right now I’m sat at the end of my bed with my duvet wrapped around my and my teddy in my lap, watching the storm through my window, it’s took about an hour for it to get here, before it was just lots of lightning and the odd rumble of thunder, now though I’ve seen fork lightning and people’s car alarms have started going off, it’s also a monsoon outside…. Pretty convinced that this is the apocalypse… 

There is no way I’m getting back to sleep until this storm has passed over! 

Our storms in the UK are pretty weak compared to the ones you get in America, it’s not often i see proper fork lightning where I live, probably like three times ever in my life, two of which were tonight! But they are still damn scary! Or maybe it’s just me… One good thing about this though is after the last few days of really hot weather at least the air will be clear and hopefully less humid…. Maybe

Anyway, I’m going to go cry in the corner under my duvet now, hope none of you guys are being kept awake by these storms! But, if you are let me know how bad it is by you!

P.s. Looks like we have another one coming in, this is going to be a long night!

Time To Pack

Sup guys, how’s it going?

I’m not feeling so great today, didn’t get much sleep cause I’ve had so much going round in my head recently so I’m pretty damn tired today, I’m also feeling a bit ill, not sure if it’s hayfever or a bug, guess I’ll find out in a couple days!

Anyway, 

Today is my last day in Stafford til September 😦 which unfortunately means it’s time to start packing my stuff away… I hate packing, it takes so long! Especially seeing as I have so much stuff… Takes me two car loads to get it all home 😛

My parents are picking me up at 11am tomorrow and then I probably won’t be back til September when I move into the new house!

I’m looking forward to having good internet again when I get home, still using that crappy BT WiFi :/

Anyways I’m gunna go start this packing! Hope you all have a great day and I shall see you tomorrow!

Steak & Lava…

Sup Guys,

I was watching this the other day….

http://lavaburger.viralthread.com/grilling-steak-on-lava-is-the-manliest-thing-youre-gunna-see-today/

Is it just me or does that not look awesome!!

Also, I find lava has this really weird appeal to it, like it looks so good, nice and warm, you just wanna get right in it…. No? Just me then…

My brain tells me its a dumb idea but then the rest of me is like, it looks so inviting!

Maybe I could be a contender for a Darwin award 😀

Or I just should steer clear of volcanoes and the like…

Damn now I’m hungry…
