Ironjawz Army!Β 

So I have been meaning to do this post since December last year… I’m terrible I know, but anyway, I got a new Warhammer army for Christmas!

Let me introduce you to the Ironjawz! An awesome, badass army of Orruks,!


They are currently built and sprayed in my parents conservatory and I started painting them on Sunday, I’m doing the classic yellow armour with bits of red thrown in on some of the little details, Arran has done the spraying for me, I decided on white as the undercoat as I think it will help bring out the yellow much better than if we sprayed them in black, so far its working!

Here is a pic of them all sprayed and ready to paint!


We have also already had a few battles with them, against Skaven and Dwarves, so far they have kicked ass and won all but one fight, it’s great! I’m not used to winning this much, however Arran has now bought a new army, the Kharadron Overlords, heres hoping that the Ironjawz can still hold their own against them!

These guys are also so much different to my Dark Elf army, I’m loving them, I have so much more motivation to paint them, I think it’s because they are so different and much more colourful, don’t get me wrong I still love my Dark Elves, I just needed a bit of a break from them as I was lacking the motivation to paint them!

So yes! watch this space, these Ironjawz are going to look awesome when they are finished and lets hope they can keep up their winning streak and destroy their new opponents!!

The Mummy Diaries: 37 Week Update!!

So we finally made it, 37 weeks! I am officially classed as full term now and baby could come any day! Super excited doesn’t even come close to how I feel right now!

Last week I had my 36 week midwife appointment, everything is looking good, however, he had decided to move up out of my pelvis a bit instead of going further in, which was a little disappointing but ah well such is life right, can’t rush these things, he will come when he is good and ready! My next appointment will be tomorrow at 38 weeks, so fingers crossed for a bit of downward movement!!

According to my app Ovia, baby is the size of a tackle box at 37 weeks, weighs just over 6lbs and is about 19 inches tall! All of his organs are fully formed and he is totally ready to come into this world and meet us, hurry up dude!

I finally finished his bedroom this week and his new moses basket arrived as well, I will do a separate post with some pics of the nursery and his moses basket all set up, we also finished washing all of his clothes… he has so many clothes it is insane! ooh and I also finished packing his hospital bag and made a start on packing my own, though most of the stuff going into my bag is stuff that I am still using so will have to all be put in last minute!

Definitely starting to feel a lot more tired now, sleep hasn’t been easy, I tend to wake up loads of times in the night and then once I wake up it takes about an hour or so to get back to sleep, but it will all be worth it, I am definitely looking forward to being able to sleep somewhat normally again once he is here, the things you don’t appreciate like sleeping on your back instead of your side all the time are the things you miss the most I think, so I am really looking forward to being able to do that again and just generally have my body back!

Ooh, I almost forgot, we had a breastfeeding class on the 13th, it was pretty interesting, though the jury is still out on whether I will breast feed or formula, I think I will give it a try for sure for at least a week but my heart is not set on it being the only way I feed him, if I end up bottle feeding I won’t be disappointed, fed is best after all and as long as he is happy it doesn’t matter.

So yeah, I think that is all I have for this weeks update, I am thinking of doing weekly updates now until he arrives, so I guess my next one will be next Sunday/Monday for 38 weeks!

P.s. we still haven’t picked out a name!!!

Introducing The Mummy Diaries!

So The Mummy Diaries is the name that I have decided to use for my posts about pregnancy and beyond, I feel like it is fitting as I will be a mummy very soon! and I wanted to distinguish these posts from my others, so there we have it, The Mummy Diaries is my new series! I was considering starting a whole new blog for this series but I struggle to keep up with this one sometimes so having two that I’m trying to post on would probably be a bit of a nightmare!

Anyway, keep an eye out, i will post an update on my pregnancy every two weeks and then there will be other random posts inbetween!

First up: Baby Haul coming March 1st!

2017 Relaunch!


So 2017 is finally here, time to start all that new year, new me rubbish that everyone always loses motivation for by the middle of Jan… Fortunately I have decided to stick with being the same old me that we all know and love! except this year I’m actually going to make a proper go at relaunching this blog… Can you believe it’s been 4 years this year since I started this!

Starting today I am going to aim to post twice a week (for now), Tuesdays and Fridays, I like this schedule cause it means I get a couple of days in between each post to think of new posts and as I occasionally suffer from bloggers block i definitely need this time and I definitely need to start off slow again and build myself back up, I need to rekindle my love for blogging, cause I really do love it!

Along with my new schedule I have updated my theme, changed my layout a little and added some new pics for my header bar! trying to make it feel a bit more fresh, hopefully all of this will help right, I mean if you fall out of love with something its best to start fresh… that’s my theory at least!

So here’s to 2017 being an awesome year and I will be back on Friday with my first post on the new schedule!! (Which is some pretty big news btw)

Happy New Year!

Things have been quiet recently but I thought I would drop by to anyone who still checks in and say HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

I know it’s like 3 days late but hey better late than never right! 

Hope you all have an amazing 2017, anyone got any new year resolutions they wanna share? I’m not very good at making/keeping mine so I tend not to make them πŸ˜›

2017 is going to be a great year, I can feel it… literally 😜

Back Online!

It’s been a while hasn’t it!

I’ll keep it short, but it’s been 5 months since i last posted, that’s quite some time and a lot has happened since then… but i am back online finally, with not the worlds greatest internet connection but it shall do for now until Sky can be bothered to sort it out for us πŸ˜€ i’m just happy to finally have internet again!

After my last post i took a bit of time out to deal with my emotions and such, in that time i completed uni, graduated, moved house and got a new job! so yeah its been a busy 5 months for me and every time i come back here after a few months break (There have been a few) i always feel like i’m starting over, i suffer with bloggers block and never know what to talk about, really i should just not overthink and let my fingers do the work right!

Anyway, i have a few ideas for some posts, i’m creating a new schedule now, i will be posting twice a week, Tuesdays and Fridays, so feel free to stick around and join in discussions/thought sharing, i am always excited to hear what others have to say!

Til then Happy Monday everyone and i shall see you all tomorrow!


New Phone!

About 5 days ago my iPhone 4S finally gave up the ghost and died on me, it refused to turn on or charge 😦 I was on pay as you go so I figured this was as good a time as any to get a new phone and get on a contract! So that is exactly what I did πŸ˜€ 

I now have the awesome iPhone 6, which I am currently blogging from! The screen is huge and the picture is so sharp, I got it yesterday but I had to wait 3 days for it….. 3 whole days of excitement and anticipation but it was totally worth it! 

It’s so big!!

In other news….. 9 DAYS TIL DISNEY!!!
I am so very very excited! We are doing the Halloween Horror Nights at Universal and I can’t wait, I’ve been watching loads of YouTube videos about it and it looks so damn good! 

Our tickets finally came as well so now it feels even more real! 


I will try and blog while I’m away, even though I know I’ve not been very good recently πŸ˜› 

Anyway, hope you all have an awesome day and I shall see you in the next post!


Summer Jobs!

So I have a job!

I am now working at Marks & Spencers in Tamworth!

I love it there, I work in the Cafe and its great, I can honestly say that I enjoy going into work, I mean I still have days where I don’t feel like it, but everyone there is so friendly and nice that I genuinely enjoy working my shifts πŸ˜€

I started at the end of June and my contract is until the end of August, I really hope they keep me on, even though I go back to uni in September, I am going into my final year so I wont be in uni that much and if they keep me on I can just travel back to go to work, or, if im lucky I can ask for a transfer to the store in Stafford, that way I wont even have to travel home for work!

But we shall see, I have to actually be kept on before I can start thinking about that πŸ˜› but here’s hoping I do, I really like it there and I definitely need the money!

Yay for getting a summer job in a posh shop!

New Theme…

Got a new theme guys…

What do you think of it?

I decided to get a premium theme for a change, not sure if I like it or not though…

Let me know what you think in the comments πŸ˜€


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!


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 πŸ˜›

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!
