It’s that time of year where for me it’s a lot harder to switch my mind off; my sleep patterns get worse, I go down with something and everything else just gets on my nerves. The fact is that I never actually realised how much my body was craving the sleep until one Friday afternoon I got home from work I just slept for hours. Until about 20:45pm (8:45pm) had my dinner with the whole house empty for awhile and then got back into bed after letting my sister in 45 minutes later.
I then slept practically all day on the Saturday waking up now and then. Having a bit of a crisis’s let’s say late 20’s Crisis shall we; as you do when your not well or anything else, the fact is I’m just rambling of course because I’m so tired could sleep right now.
Guess what? Yeah your right I can’t I’m so anxious right now that I can’t do anything. You know when you want one of your closest friends with you just to keep you safe? Yeah that’s me I want to be the one kept safe I want that feeling. Just miss them too much right now. This cold doesn’t help in the slightest.
Sorry this Christmas Blog is a bit of a ramble as I actually don’t know what I’m talking about. As you know me I plan them carefully but this was a last minute thing last night (Saturday 16th December 2017) blog thing. As I’ve forgot or well slept the day away shall we say haha.
There were three men living together in London. An Afro-American, a West Indian and a Nigerian. They were all starving because they didn’t have money to buy food. However upon coming close to a posh London restaurant in this classy neighbourhood, they decided to come up with a plan.
The Afro-American went in first. After being seated, he ordered a three course meal with white wine. When he had finished the meal, the waiter came by with the bill. “LISTEN MY MAN, I ALREADY PAID YOU!” – the Afro-American shouted! The waiter was very confused because he could not remember being paid. But because he did not want to cause any trouble, he let the brother leave.
Five minutes later, the West Indian walked into the same restaurant and ordered a five course meal with red wine. When he was finished eating, the waiter came by to collect the money for the food. “HEY, HEY, LOOK AT ME CROSSES. BUT AH PAID YOU ALREADY!” – the West Indian shouted. This time the manager came and had to calm down the West Indian, because he did not want anything to upset the other customers. He let the guy go.
Ten minutes later, the Nigerian walked in. And you know how we are. He sat down. Lit up a cigarette, and ordered the most expensive meal on the menu, plus two bottles of Beer. After he had finished, the waiter came to collect the money for the meal, But before the Nigerian could say anything, the waiter spoke to him.”Sir, I have been having all sorts of problems all day and I can’t understand it. Two other people like you came in earlier and ate, and they say that they paid me but I don’t remember getting any money from them so, ” Before he could finish, the Nigerian interrupted, rather emphatically, “OGA I SORRY FOR YOU OOOO. BUT DAT NA YOUR PROBLEM. I JUST WANT YOU TO GIVE ME MY CHANGE!!”

Before I start today’s blog I may of said that I had two weeks left of working. Actually i realised that I’ve done the blog a week in advance it’s only a week until I finish work for two weeks holiday. I do apologise as I forgot what day I’m on when I’m doing things in advance. Haha. Let’s get on with this blog of the day.
Echo screams through the shell of the Grenfell Tower lay standing still lifeless and empty. At this time of year I don’t know where to begin. I guess I should start by saying this that I refuse to forget you; I refuse to be silenced, I refuses to neglect you, all the souls that are left trapped up in the Grenfell thinking that they are still in the fire. Even though I’ve never met you. It could of been my mum’s house or it could of been my nephew; now to think of it, it could of been me up there waving my white plain tee up there with all of my friends in the ground trying to see up there. I just hope that you have now rested in peace and your now free. I can’t imagine your pain but it’s still what it is. I went to the block just to chill with the kids and I could feel the chill go up my spine made me shudder. The troubled waters are now coming fast like it’s running past us; it’s okay I’m going to be right there just to build you a bridge.
When you’re weary and small you will find tears in your eyes. I promise you I will dry them all once again because I’m on your side whenever the times get tough and when true friends can’t be found. I will be your bridge once again over your troubled waters I will lay myself down next to you once more to insure that you are safe and not alone. So much pain in my heart seeing my community moved me to the point that they choose to gleam as we face the dark.
As the evening falls so hard whilst your down and out on the street I will comfort you; yes I will, I’ll take your part when the darkness comes over you and all you feel is pain all around you. Like a bridge over troubled waters I will lay I will lay myself down next to you just that your not on your own.
What makes me the happiest is that no matter how difficult it is for me to blog when I’m really down and low I still find away around to get a blog up everyday or so. Especially since completing 30 Days Challenge for Autumn to which has given me a week or so off before Christmas Log Blog Advent Calendar; I was able to write something nearly everyday, and all of the sudden I felt like I had slipped into another one of those low moments.
However just in time for me do this challenge for Christmas on which sort of pulled me out of it quite quickly because it’s only 25 Days Challenge; to which for me is like only five days shorter than the previous one, however I have good friends to help me out if I start slipping into the mental health state and also this whole week has actually nearly finished planned because I had a bit more time on my hands to do them.
I’m currently on a role last weekend to get monjority of this weeks blogs done plus my normal routing of blogs that I haven’t even done on time for a very long time. It was like a hit and miss sort of days as you guys may know with my blogging ways of I’m trying to get them up when I can. Also you guys been giving me so much support of coming back reading more of my blogs; along side my old blogs you seem to have found as well, I looked at my stats the other day one day I had like 32 views in one day and the other day I had people from other countries that I have never really heard off before.
I’m like that’s amazing because it’s going far and wide all over the globe obviously I’m doing something right. Not even sure if I’m starting to ramble or not now guys; do let me know if I am or not because you guys know me when I start to run out of things to say I’m pretty much ramble or I’m just that tired I ramble because of my stupid body doing that whole waking up at a stupid o’clock thing.
I think I’ve got about a week and a half left to go with work then no more school runs for two weeks. Depending when the schools go back but I hope that no schools that I go to go back on my birthday because I’ve never worked or gone to school on my birthday. I do hope that I can keep that winning streak going for another year. Not even sure what I’ve got planned for it or two of my close friends got something up their sleeves because I have been told that one of them has got something up their sleeves little toe rag haha. I’m not getting my hopes up on that front I never really do until the day.
This year my family decided they wanted to get a real Christmas Tree this year; I wasn’t going to go and get it with them on Sunday 10th November 2017, however I was like why not as we could go and cut a tree down. Yet this came with a price of rain, snow, mud and cold water to the bottom of this hill; then a man hunt on for Christmas Tree or two, guess what we had to get the trees back up to the hill and then we get them home with one for the house.
Started to decorated it but the tree looks so bald and bare. I really don’t like it. I could be me not being so use to a fake Christmas for so long. Man so ASD. Hate changes but heyho the fact that I’m watching my family do the Christmas Tree trying to make sense of it and I’m writing this on the Sunday. It’s quite funny.
By the time I got home with my holy shoes and socks had to go straight into the bin because they were officially unwearable and so were the socks. I couldn’t even figure feel my feet I had ice blocks on my feet until I had warm ankle water in the bath. My word my feet were so cold.

I really couldn’t believe that it was him really him standing in front of me; after so long talking to each other, fighting and arguing. Loosing each other in the midst of talking to each other; then finding each other, then loosing each other and finally getting everything straight of winning.
Prince Caspian explained that he’ll take me out in the morning to get new clothes just get a fresh set for the morning and that I can sleep in his shirt and boxers for the night. I was like okay not have time to do anything ready or anything of the sort; I can understand that he’s very anxious of getting back to the palace, before anyone else noticed that he had gone.
Yet this was a great time for me to get rid of the horrible woman from the palace for good. We all said good bye to each other well me, my parents and one of my siblings who was still living at home as well. The ride back to the palace didn’t seem that long to me but then again I was quite heavily distracted by Caspian; I didn’t even noticed we had arrived until the door of the car next to me had opened, the cold air hit me and that’s when I realised we had arrived.
We barely just got into the palace a lady came running down the stairs threw herself at Caspian trying to smother him with kisses and everything. I could see her Majesty behind her she gave me the nod to say that the woman has to go. Took me awhile to pluck up the courage even with Prince Andrews help by giving me a nudge. I just went for it; I pulled her arms off him, stood in between them and the woman couldn’t understand why I just did that.
I had found my voice. Made it loud and clear so that everyone could hear what I had to say to her in front of everyone even front of the maids, butlers, the cooks and everyone who works for the royal family. “You are no longer needed here. If I see your still here in the next 24 hours I will release a statement how you wangled yourself into someone love life when you know perfectly well that they are in love with someone else. You have no reason to be here or wanted here.” “You can’t do that? I am engaged to Prince Caspian!” exclaimed Melody “actually I can….you weren’t even on the royal family cards or mine. They were helping me to get to Prince Caspian before you showed up unannounced and pressured him. Actually I was already engaged to him before you intervened. Now start packing your bags and no one will help you one single bit. If you start destroying my life even more I have enough evidence to destroy yours before you could do anything else” I replied feeling more confident in myself for standing up to her.
Melody started to look round to see if she could get any back up she tried to get the back up from the Queen. However the Queen didn’t budge other than saying “run along you heard Princess Hannah to be” that part I didn’t know but I didn’t want to show it to Melody because she would win more. Melody had started to cry as she ran off to her room to pack. Since that day we never even saw her or heard about her again.
Day 13 Christm
As they all travelled to Guildford to find the Prince Caspian’s true love Prince Andrew was filling in his brother what the fake obsessive women who wanted Caspian all to himself trying to find him and trying to keep him away from the true love he loved the most.
They had finally arrived in Guildford; it wasn’t too long they were on my doorstep ringing my doorbell, my dad literally wasn’t too sure what was happening why they were there. My mum wasn’t too sure either but they let them in; obviously they knew it had something to do with me because they were informed that one day Prince Caspian would come for me, but didn’t know when that was going to happen. Today was today by the looks of things.
Prince Caspian asked permission to go and surprise me as I didn’t know that he was there in the house. So my parents directed him to which bedroom was mine; I could hear footsteps and people talking, I just thought “oh they’ve got visitors and they must of forgotten to tell me about it” .
My door opened I looked over. There was Prince Caspian appearing around the door gave me a massive grin on his face “surprise!” I couldn’t believe what I was seeing or hearing. I got off my bed gave him one massive big hug on the landing as my bedroom wasn’t big enough for both of us in one room.
Since the attacks from March to June it is has been very quiet indeed but at this time of year it’s time for those who have lost their lives. Here is a story for them spending their first year of Christmas in heaven.
I know I was a liar but I’ve gave into the fire; I could hear your voice saying to me “fight the pain” I know I should’ve of fought it but at least now that I’m being honest now I know I have failed you, I know you’ll be blaming yourself for failing me but you haven’t I should of done you better but I don’t want you to lie for me or lie to yourself of what happened.
I know, I know, I know I use to give you everything but just let me give you the freedom that I couldn’t give you since that day. I know I know I know that you got everything now; up here I’m nothing here without out you but I beg you now give me one last time to take me home for one more time then I promise you after that I’ll let you go and you’ll let me go to heaven.
Baby, Mum, Dad I don’t care if I’m not there I’m still in your heart and all I really care is knowing that I’ll be waking up in your arms in your dreams. Knowingly that I’m safe now in heaven I just need to be the one who takes you home. I don’t deserve it and I know you don’t deserve it but stay with me for a minute; I swear I’ll make it worth it can you forgive me for giving up at least only temporarily, I know this isn’t my fault or yours I should’ve of been more careful but I didn’t know that this would happen.
I know we didn’t deserve it but I had the most happiest time I have ever been. Seeing the star that I loved and doing the job that I loved the most by protecting the people who need to be protected. Just give me one last time to be with my family to make me whole.
