March, as February was a bit boring..

March was a strange month for me.

March was a month of ‘things to look forward too’. The Boyf and I were given the exciting news that we were celebrating my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary at The Ritz. Yes, you heard, The Ritz.

We had also made the decision to purchase a puppy, so that was another excitement for us. Both of these things were happening in April so more about that later.

March is also the month in which the Boyf was born.

Now I don’t know about you but I am a little bit of a birthday fanatic so naturally I had the house decorated, a candeled muffin ready and a stack of presents patiently waiting to be opened by the time the birthday boy woke up.

Unfortunately, I had to do a system reset on my phone which consequently lost all my photos and therefore I have no proof of how amazing my attempts were. Better luck next time.

The end of March was a hard time for my family and I. March 21st 2012 marks the day my great grandmother passed away. This is not a subject I feel ready to talk about just yet as it still feels very raw however I will say that my Nana was the most incredible woman and I love and miss her very much.

Stay tuned for Aprils shinanghans, what could be better than a weekend at the Ritz??! Continue reading


Other news from January

I accidently auditioned for Big Brother.

I travelled to Cardiff with a friend so she could audition, only to be told only auditionees were allowed in the building.

It was cold. It was wet. And the audition process can last up to 7 hours.

I had no choice.

Needless to say, I did not get past the second round! Continue reading

With that said, I thought I would give you a little sneak peak at what the first half of 2012 had to offer.

We shall start at the very beginning, I have heard that’s a pretty good place to start…

The boyf and I started our 2012 in the South of France, Sausse to be specific.  We drove the 22 hour journey in one shebang, up to Dover, across to Calais and down to the Alps.  Here are a few pictures of our time there:


Ok, that will do for now, I might post a few more at a later date.. stay tuned for what else I got up to in January.. it involves an unexpected audition.. Continue reading
