My questions and answers

1.What was the last thing you did for yourself? (Watched a movie you liked, bought yourself a treat, had a pamper day).

I had a few lazy/relaxing days last week to let my body unwind.

2. What genre of movies do you like to watch? (Romance, action, thriller, comedy, horror).

Romance, Comedy, Action I’m not to fussy with movies really.

3. Do you enjoy: your own company/being around others all the time/ a happy medium both alone and with others? (Or something I’ve missed?..I feel like I’ve missed one out😂).

I enjoy my own company and having time alone but I need to have others around me from time to time.

4. What 3 words do you think best describe you?

Caring, Loyal and Trustworthy.

5. If you had the last word on any important issue in the world and your plan would be put into action immediately to help, what would it be? 

To stop all wars as what is the point in it all, more and more people are losing their lives because of wars around the world.

6. Have you ever been pranked by someone before? What did they do?/ Have you ever pranked someone else? What did you do? (Either one 😂).

The one person that does this is my boyfriend,he’s done a few things over the years that we have been together,an example is when I was helping with something and he told me to do something,so after me doing it for a few minutes he burst out laughing because I didn’t need to be doing it and instead i just looked like an idiot,he found it hilarious…i didn’t.

7. Do you have any goals in life that have stayed with you since you were a little kid? What are they and have you accomplished any of them?

I don’t know really,the only things i can think about from when i was young was silly little things that are the types of things that all kids say,it was only when i got older that i made real goals.

8. Do you have any brothers or sisters? Or are you an only child? 

I have one brother who is 5 years younger than me.

9. Does the weather affect your mood? Rain/sad, sun/happy, rain/happy, sun/sad, or other.

Yes it can do but not all the time,depends what I am doing on that particular day,ive been fishing in the pouring rain and hail stones before and still enjoyed it.

10. How do you feel when someone comments/likes a post on your blog? 

It makes me feel good,to know that a person has read what I have written and liked it enough to let me know whether they just like the post or leave me a comment.

11. When and where are you in your element (most happy) 😄.

I would say when I am with my boyfriend as i can be 100% myself around him,and thats when i am most happy.

Weekly recap-20/3/2017-26/3/2017

I had the week off from work last week so I spent the week at my boyfriends house.

Monday

I had a lazy day as my boyfriend was at work all day,so I spent the day watching YouTube videos on my laptop,was nice to be able to relax though.

Tuesday

Spent the day with my boyfriend,we spent the day watching films on TV,we then went swimming in the evening 8-9:30.This was really good and felt so good afterwards.

Wednesday

Spent the day catching up with friends with my boyfriend,we went round the house of our friends,spent a few hours there catching up,then went to our other friends house for a catch up with them and even had dinner cooked for us,which was delicious.

Thursday

Boyfriend was at work again so spent some time watching YouTube videos on my laptop,I have recently got back into playing the sims,and love the sims 4 so played on that as well for a few hours.

Friday

Boyfriend at work so another lazy day,had a nice morning just relaxing,but in the afternoon I started feeling unwell,so stayed in bed hoping it would go away,ordered dominos for dinner(naughty),it was yummy though, I had ham, bacon and mushroom pizza, nachos and dominos cookies.

Saturday

I woke up feeling not good at all, I had tonsillitis which I hate because when I have that I cant eat anything but really soft food or soups. We had made plans to meet up with some friends of mine, my boyfriend didn’t think we should go because of me being ill but I still wanted to go (that wasn’t going to stop me).We met them and went for lunch(which I didn’t eat much of because I couldn’t),then we went to the fun fair that was on, went on some rides and played games winning some prizes as well, we had a really good day, I was so tired I went to bed at 9pm,couldnt stay awake.

Sunday

We stayed in because I still wasn’t feeling well and just spent the day curled up watching TV, I hadn’t eaten anything properly since Friday so my boyfriend wanted me to eat something, which I said I couldn’t,so he went to the shop and bought stuff that I would be able to eat, cooked dinner for us, he had sausages with mash and vegetables, because I couldn’t eat the sausages, he got me hot dog sausages as they are soft and done them for me with mashed potato and really soft vegetables, I was able to eat some of this and felt better for it, had some cream egg ice cream for pudding as well(yummy). He also bought me some fruit smoothies to get my energy levels up a bit.

Overall I had a good week off work, didn’t end well though, went back to work yesterday, but I’m feeling a lot better now and can eat normally again. I’m writing this post later than I wanted to because I literally haven’t been able to do anything, I haven’t had the energy from not being able to eat. I wanted to have this up on Monday but better late than never.

The 90’s Tag!

Hi everyone!

I have been seeing this tag around quite a bit and reading all the posts has made me really want to do it myself. I was born in 1990 so grew up in the 90’s and I always find it so much fun to think back to when I was a kid, and the different things that I used to like, I also love to go on YouTube and search 90’s and watch all the old theme songs from my favourite TV programs, there is so many videos to watch and adverts for toys that I used to have and play with, I just love to reminisce.

Favourite Disney film?

This is so hard to decide because as a kid I loved Disney films and I still do now, I had near enough all the films on VHS tape(and there probably still at home somewhere),one of my favourite was probably The jungle book as I remember I used to watch that so much.

Favourite music artist?

I loved the spice girls, was always listening to them, have them on my Spotify playlists now so I can still listen to them. I also loved steps, I was in a charity shop and found a CD of one of their albums that I had on cassette tape and I had to buy it when I saw it.

Favourite candy/sweets?

So many that I used to love to eat, used to love popping candy and dib dabs.

Favourite game?

I had so many board games that I used to play, my favourites were probably guess who?, Mousetrap and Operation.

Favourite McDonalds happy meal toy?

I used to love any toys that I would get with a McDonalds happy meal, I loved the TY beanie babies, when I got one of them ones I remember I used to take it everywhere with me.

Favourite book?

When I was younger I loved Winnie the Pooh and I’ve got the collection which is in one huge book, loved reading that. When I got a bit older I really got into Jaqueline Wilson and I’ve got so many of her books,(I will still read them now).

Favourite clothing store?

This is something that I can’t really remember as I never bought the clothes myself, my mum did so I can’t think of where she went to get clothes for me.

What would you watch when you got home from school?

As soon as I got in from school the TV would go onto ITV so as I could watch CITV, Favourite programs were Rosie and Jim, Tots TV, Art Attack, Bernard’s watch, and Zap!

Well that was a bit of fun to think back on all of that, I’m not going to tag anyone in particular, I tag anyone who was a 90’s kid to do this tag.

Monday

I had the day off worl so spent the day with my boyfriend,we just spent the day relacing,went round to see some friends,we went down to the beach for a walk also.

Tuesday

I had a lazy morning just catching up on everyones blog posts and watching YouTube videos.I then had to start work at 4pm-10pm doing a sleep in shift also,so didn’t really get up to much on this day.

Wednesday

It was my mum’s birthday,so after finishing work and walking home at 7am, I gave her her presents and card.Again I had a lazy day,we went out for a meal to a pub at lunch time,which was delicious, I had homemade macaroni cheese with garlic bread, this was possibly one of the best macaroni cheese I have eaten, followed by chocolate cheesecake for pudding, 3 glasses of wine also went with this meal. I was so full from lunch that I didn’t eat anymore meals that day and just ended up having a really small snack in the evening.

Thursday

Another day off work, this one was a bit more productive, I went for a run in the morning which I haven’t done in a long time after hurting my knee quite badly last year. I then also done a workout from YouTube channel Blogilates, I done the best ab exercises for a toned tummy workout. I felt so good after doing this, I also wrote a blog post on this which you can read here.

Friday

Another work day 9:30am-10pm,so didn’t do anything on this day. Also had a sleep in shift so didn’t even go home.

Saturday

I work alternate weekends and this weekend was my weekend to work, so I got up at 6:30am and got ready, then started work again at 7am working through till 7:30pm when I could go home after 34 hours.

Sunday

Short day at work 10am-4:30pm,i then got home where my boyfriend was waiting for me to pick me up as I’ve now got a week off work and I am spending the week at his house. So after getting home I had to pack my bag with everything I need for the week and we went back to his house. We have both been trying to be good with what we eat, but decided to treat ourselves and had pizza and garlic bread for dinner which was lovely, we then just relaxed watching TV for the rest of the evening.

I will be trying to do these posts every week on a Monday as I would like to carry them on as I always enjoy reading posts like these.

Fitness Motivation

I haven’t really done anything fitness related for myself in probably nearly a year now, I hurt my knee quite badly last year which stopped me doing exercise, as I couldn’t walk on it properly for 12 weeks.

I have wanted to get back into fitness for a while now I used to go running 3 times a week, I used to eat really healthily and I lost a lot of weight, this past year I have lost my motivation to keep active and the weight that I lost I put back on.

I decided now is the time to do something about it, my boyfriend was talking about wanting to get in better shape himself, so thought why not do it with him. We went swimming at the weekend which made us both feel so good after. I wanted to start my running again as that was something that I used to really enjoy doing.

I went on a run this morning for the first time in so long, I definitely need to strengthen my knee up again, but if I can stay active then I will be able to do that. I just went for half an hour today as I wanted to see how I done compared to what I used to do, I am aiming to get back to doing tis 3 times a week again.

IMG_0529

When I got back home from my run I wanted to do something more so I done the Blogilates best ab exercises for a toned tummy as my other goal is to tone myself up a bit.

Even though I didn’t do a lot today I am proud that I have done these two things today as I completely lost all my motivation for staying in shape last year. I’m hoping I can keep this up and exercise regularly again. Will make updates on how I do.
