10 Things I’m Grateful for


10 Things I’m Grateful for

Why not bring in 10 things that I’m grateful for back or that haven’t done before; can’t remember if you ask me, I thought having this as Friday Time Recap Time. This will help to remember what we can do along of recaping that we maybe grateful for. 

  1. Having a few soul mates in my life that stay put
  2. Happiness 
  3. My closest friends
  4. My passion for writing and creativity 
  5. Time for myself
  6. My family 
  7. Great support network
  8. Summer is just around the corner
  9. Laughter
  10.  Especially having a life 

These 10 things are the great things to have in my life; without them I would be still falling apart, but also I can throw myself back into things when I know I’m ready to get back onto it.

Why are we still drawing up the past for the victims?


Why are we still drawing up the past for victims? 

Over the years few people have been coming to alight in our daily lives who are serving life for a reason; but in today society when you get life sentence you get 5-10 years, that’s not life. The people who are serving life sentences from 1960’s, 70’s, 80’s or even 90’s they had tougher sentences than from 2000 onwards; what’s changed since then? Even the people behind bars know that life is life. 

What sickens me more that the killers who had done horrific crimes all those years ago; this week are still getting the publicity that they want for their crimes, even though they are dead now. What message is that sending out to everyone? Also if you had a dying wish of not be placed where you killed someone or a few people; I’m sorry you have no say in the matter in my opinion, because if you killed innocent people for no reason then you’ll be buried where your victims were buried. 

Bear this in mind this is my own opinion in this blog; if you wanted to kill someone or something join the army, they will train you harder and make you learn from right and wrong. 

That’s for me this weeks Friday Time Recap Time; have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing, don’t get too wet or too sunburnt were ever you are in the country or round the world.

What certain things that make you gag?



Introduction
 

As I write this blog on a Thursday for the Friday Time Recap Time prepared whilst fighting with a twitchy eyes and a headache; I came up with a pun sort of I’ll let you decide, as my head is slowly but surely in and out of pain.

‘ May I rain?’ Asked the big black clouds “well if I said “no” you’ll still rain, so you won’t need my permission” I replied.

What certain things that make you gag?

Well last night I didn’t get far from doing this in advance did I? Haha well thanks to the feisty rain but not a storm; I had to go to to sleep because I couldn’t look at the screen for too long as my eyes were twitching so badly and my head was bounding, my eyes weren’t helping me in the slightest.

I’m just managing to cope with my headache at the moment; better get tonight’s over and done with before anything else happens, won’t we as I’m starting to feel incredibly tired right now.

What certain things that make me gag? There’s a few things that can make gag that I can think of straight away; I wonder if you have similar things like me that make you gag, so here is my list of what makes me gag.

  • Throwing up makes me gag (I can just about manage my own as I’m use to having my head down the toilet in my early 20’s) 
  • The number 2’s everyone should know what the number 2’s are don’t they? If not it’s poo’s that’s when it makes me gag. 
  • Seeing dead animals that have been run over and etc that’s when I start to gag because you start to feel sorry for it and then your like see everything that’s inside. 
  • The meat that’s been cooking. Whatever meat it is that’s cooking; that makes me gag so much, because of the stetench of the smell just wants me to vomit so much.

Thinks that’s about it but I’m not hundred percent that’s all of them but that’s just the three of them that I could think off. I want to know what your gag habits are. Let me know down below.

My Community in shock? Ay which part is shock?


Introduction 

This got me thinking as I saw a sign for Surrey Advertiser saying “Community in shock over stabbing”; I’m like who was more shocked, the politician or the community or the people who dealt with it. So confused with that head line right now. Here’s my thought process in this blog article for you. 

My Community in Shock? Ay which part is in shock?

I just want just say I don’t even know who the people are but some people say stupid things when something like this happens on the behalf of the community; everyone has gone mad, or something that people don’t get it. 

So I’ve been living in the same town, same community and same house for 26 years; nothing has really shocked me what so ever to be honest with you, from two pubs fighting each other, to shops breaking into about 4 – 5 times and a stabbing attack that killed someone who I went to school with but left.

 Along side all of that all of the social services like police, ambulances, fire engines and St Johns Amblances but most of all helicopters going over head of your house or going up the main road. That isn’t quiet that’s noise and you get it at least 20 a day going up the road; not like I’ve been counting but it’s about that nearly everyday, believe me that this area that I live in isn’t quiet. Not sure if the politician need his head checked or something because; where has he been living that’s quite.

What gets me is that this politician thinks he’s speaking on the behalf of the community; but doesn’t he mean he’s talking about himself or something, because I don’t think everyone was shaken up about it all. It happens it happens to be honest with you; because it’s more common these days now, and also starting to be more frequent about it all. 

He must of doing it for a publicity stunt for the whole election that we had this week; I don’t know, but surely he must know my hometown and its history. Wouldn’t he? I have no idea maybe one day if I ever got to speak to him I would love to do a interview about my hometown and see how much he really knows about it. Can’t even remember his name but I know he’s a conservative that’s about it; probably most stupid guy like the rest of the politics, that are stupid enough to think that they know best. 

How do you set up a blog notebook?


Introduction 

Amazing where you get your ideas from at the best of times; just had an idea in the mist of having a conversation with someone suggesting something, along with best not to say way don’t want be too gross. Haha. Might tell you might not tell you. I don’t know if it will work if you ask me. Who knows. 

How do you set up a blog notebook? 

How do you set up a blog note blog notebook? To be honest it depends on how you work; each blogger and writer work differently but they still come out successfully, but most importantly on top. You just need to work with yourself more; find different ways of doing things that are more suitable and easy, you can stick them in or use the pages no matter how you work in the notebook. 

Personally I’m a scrap piece of paper, receipts, pages of the notebook, post it’s and anything that I can lay my hands on basically. I’ve been like that for years because being writer for so long; I’ve been working on a routine that helps me to keep my ideas down, I’ve recently Stuck labels on my blog notebook but also labelled the year that I started it and when the notebook is finished I’ll write in it when the book is completed. 

You can get also ideas of how to set up a blog notebook or story notebook or anything along the lines of creatively using notebooks. It is simple way of doing things but I would recommend Pinterest for that sort of thing for creative things. Can’t stop you from using my idea to try out; there’s no harm done in working out how to do things, you just have to find your own leash that is more comfortable for you at the end of the day. 

April Newsletter 2017


Introduction 

I thought I might start doing the newsletter as I’m going along this month because I can never remember what had happened over the past month or so. I hope your enjoying the new official blog now as it’s finally up and running. Didn’t really take to long to do really. Probably tweak if here and their over the next coming months; so that I know how it can run it smoothly, also to be able to help you guys to see what’s happening also. 

Would love to hear your comments about the new blog website it would be nice to have some opinions on the new blog. Hope you are able to join me to carry on with the new journey that I am taking. 

April Newsletter 2017

Spring has finally arrived at the start of the month we had lovely warm sunny weather; that made me wanting to go out for a walk with no problem what so ever, love the feeling of the nice warmth air on my face and my skin. Enjoying the fact that I don’t have to take a coat were ever I go; is a bonus because I’m one of those people who hate carrying things like coats, when it says it’s going to rain and it doesn’t. It’s also that time of year when it’s getting warmer; that’s when my feet are like give me air, give me air get these warm ridiculous soaks off my feet. I have odd occasions kicked off my shoes at work because it’s been so hot; I don’t care if my feet get run over or not by the equipment, it causes more damage on my feet wearing shoes, than wearing without them to be honest. 

I’m getting into lots of programs recently like Once Upon A Time on which now that I’ve caught up; I have now turned to Grimm and that’s so awesome that I can’t stop watching it right now, it’s so amazing and addictive. There’s not many things that get me glued in watching things to be honest; but now that I have got things I enjoy watching now then when I was growing up in my teens, there’s more things out there than before. I do try and watch things like Game of Thrones and etc but just need to get into them a bit more I suppose.

The first week of April has been fairly busy; from meeting up with an old friend from college, looking after a relative and also trying to get blog paperwork done as much as I can as I’ve had the time off to do it all. Along side blogging and putting it up on the new website; it is a lot of hard work to begin with but it keeps my mind occupied if you ask me, glad it’s been getting done or now sorted shall I say haaha. Writing the newsletter in bits so lots of past/present tenses in the wrong places: opps but if I don’t start it now, I’ll know that I would forget it all by the end of the month. 

Easter holidays of 2017 have now officially and truly over; Easter weekend feels like a life time ago, you guys probably haven’t got much Easter Eggs left. I remember when I was telling a friend of mine all about the true tradition of Easter; he replied that he doesn’t even remember it, when he was learning it. I wish I could forget it if you ask me; but growing up in a Christian family and going to church a lot when I was younger, it’s a lot harder than you think in trying to forget it. So I try and not brag about it because through school I try not to let people know incase my peers would bully me or something. Other than that I don’t believe in it anyways so it was okay but you never know those days or these days what people might say or do.

Also this month I have had my first mini holiday of the year; went to Bournemouth on Good Friday and came back Saturday evening, loved it so much that I didn’t really realise how tired I was as I kept on dropping off everywhere. Asleep I mean; well not everywhere, jeez the amount of times I fell asleep in the car on the way back home I was pretty much so relaxed I was a sleep. Would love to do more mini holidays around England if I could; if I had the money, the time to do it and etc. Also to be able to blog about them would be awesome as well; so that people can enjoy them as much as I could, along with they can consider on where to go on holiday cheaply and worth their money. 

Peer Pressure

Introduction 

Well, I’ve been thinking as this week; I’ve been talking in my other two events about our safety at all ages, we find peer pressure a lot of the in schools, magazine and the world of celebrities. 

Peer Pressure 

The most astonishing thing about peer pressure of all ages of life is that people have to follow every fashion, every technology, every hair style and many more. Everyone has to have the very next big thing; otherwise if they don’t, they will think that that their friends or their peers will be ashamed of them if they don’t have the next new thing. 

This will cause children to have mental health problems because people who bully others for their looks, poor backgrounds and etc will think it’s all their fault. Which will make them do drastic measures of either self-harming, suicide or even put pressure on their parents to help them look good and do things that they may regret later in life. 

Mental health problems have now been picked up now than it has been in the past years; no one really had a clue what can cause it to have it, as soon as people realise that the children are getting the symptoms. Even if the government are putting pressure onto the staff; the staff having to put it on the children, you will soon get a back lash of children of that generation being diagnosed with it. 

I didn’t really suffer much of peer pressure or anything like but did struggle with fitting in as people who had loads of friends, boyfriends and etc. I didn’t really had an easy time through school other than doing things like plays and sports etc just to get out of classes. I think that’s what got me through secondary school to be honest because I hated being in classes or something. I use to cry like maybe once or twice or maybe more when I was a school; I didn’t know why or anything until like my last two years of secondary school I kind of given up the whole I don’t give a too hot about anything, didn’t even bother claiming things for the house that I was in. 

I was known to be the quiet boffin who would cry at something; or even just get on with their work because the teacher says or things would go back to my mum, sometimes things did and it would cause tension etc. Did I know then that I had mental health problems? Probably not. Did I know then? when I could hear for the first time when I was about 4 or 5 years old! No I didn’t. Looking back at now I can perfectly say to anyone; was I under the influence of peer pressure throughout school as everyone was cleaver than me, smarter than me and have more of the social life me and have loads of friends. I probably say “yes I was”. 

Peer pressure can cause even at work because everyone has different skills, different ways of doing things, different levels no one is wrong but you can feel the peer pressure of it all when things go wrong or something. Peer pressure can be harsh and horrible. 

All I can say is speak out. Get help. Don’t shut people out. Yeah it’s frightened to speak out as you don’t know how people will react or even respond to the whole thing. The more people talk about it; the more people will recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health issues in which they can raise the alarms, on your behalf if you can’t face of telling someone you can’t trust or be judged. I’m like like my that I’m scared of being judged by someone or by people if I mention to people that I suffer with it.

Internet Safety 

Introduction 

It was one night that I really couldn’t sleep; things just kept on playing over and over my head, which isn’t healthy for myself or my mental state of mind. Internet safety kept on propping up in my mind; on which we hear on how dangerous internet can be no matter where we are, or what we are doing. We just think we’re doing things so innocently; but yet at times it can cost us our lives, where no one knows what is happening. Then all of the sudden; it’s another case on the news across the whole world, that someone has gone missing or turning up dead. 

I don’t mean to frighten you; but internet is a dangerous game to play within itself, people say “oh I’ll be fine…what harm will come out of it” before it’s too late to stop it. The dreaded thing has happened; no matter how hard you try, you start blaming yourself that you could of done much better than you did. 

Internet safety isn’t just there for younger generation; it’s there for everyone to use as a guideline, it does go for young adults, adults and the elderly. All of the chat rooms; social media, internet games, videos on YouTube and many more. They all link to people who we all think are really nice; friendly, caring and think that they are our friend. Until one day they start changing their tone; once they have got you where they want you, make you do things that you don’t want you to or listen to them more over your true friends and family.

Younger generation may think that their parents maybe intervening with their lives but they aren’t really; they only care about you, want you to be safe. They will continue to care about you when your in your adult life; even when they have passed, they will still care about you know matter what. Believe me my parents care still even when I’m an adult; I’m still their child no matter what happens to me, they are always there for me when I need them.

How do you know what’s good on you? And what doesn’t look good on you?

Introduction 

By now that as soon as this is posted up; I’ll be away for a night with a friend to get away, down in the south west of the country, I am looking forward to but anxious at the same time as it’s the first time being away from home in awhile. I know I’ll be safe and be having fun. I need it to take my mind of things along side to help me feel well enough and prepared to go back to work on Tuesday. 

How do you know what’s good on you? And what doesn’t look good on you?

I always find that you may need a second opinion weather it’s your best mate or your relative. For me it’s myself or with a best mate that I’m with at the time to help me pick out what’s good and what not. It has taken me a very long time to know what looks good on me and what doesn’t look good. 

I use to wear lots of things that didn’t look right on me for years; always looked out of place, always tried to look different but at that time no one really knew what to wear in 2000 to 2010 really. It was a new decade or century not sure what it’s called but as the years gone by clothing became more nicer than it has been. It’s my personal experience; since leaving college in 2012 I became custom to explore more what I would like to wear; as I was working and money was coming in, so it was easier for me to go looking what suited me more. 

Then about 2013/2014 I think after changing jobs with more money coming; I had found my comfort of clothing that I love to wear day in day out, as I knew I had found what my leash of what suites me more than in the past. I still have my jogging bottoms and etc; I use them for my down time or an ill day because that’s what they are there for, and nothing else.

It’s just finding your own leash and not coping anyone else’s; you don’t have to follow people’s dress sense to fit in, believe me if I told you that I dress quite posh but my sort of poshness of Primark clothing that are cheap. You wouldn’t think that if you saw me walking down the road; looking posh and stylish looking confident in what I’m wearing, nearly all my shoes go with my outfits that I put on so I don’t have to worry about the whole I don’t know what to wear. I do have moments but not that often.

I do a trail and error like get a top that I think I might like and see what I can do with it along side my other clothing that I have at home. If it works that’s awesome but if doesn’t then you haven’t really lost that much money. I reckon you should give it ago. Just get a top or what you fancy give it ago it doesn’t hurt just to try out one thing with your other clothing that you have.  

Good luck lovely people

Recap Time of my new blog and prep


Introduction 

This weeks Friday Time Recap Time I’m going to be recapping over the course of this week of blog prep and the new blog website. I do have to say it isn’t that easy when your relaunching a new website; along with all the prep work that has to go around it, also the paperwork that you have to put forward for it. 

I’m already a weeks behind on my paperwork for this month but will catch up for it; as I have the evidence for what I have done so far this week, hopefully I’ll catch up with it soon as I can. 

Recap Time of my new blog and prep. 

Today in hustle and bustle of blogging advice; this week I have finally got the official blog up and running, put up a few of the last three months of newsletters up so that old and new readers can catch up on what’s been happening. Have created new blogs like Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and etc blogs where if I have something perceive that I want to talk about that will happen with that correct day. 

Along the normal blog post that I have had in the past will still follow; along with the three nights events plus Sunday’s event, as per normal because it seems fair that everyone one enjoys the whole events on certain times. Apologies this is a late one due to having personal things happening; so it took a little while longer to write, this one as I was planning this all day but haven’t had a chance to write it all out. 

I have spent monjority of the day cutting out pictures and have started laminating things for my clipboards, blog boards and folders. As I have finally got a new laminator that arrived on Monday; still need to laminate the rest of the pictures before they go onto anything, I like to have them laminated so that if anything does happen like something gets spilt on or something I know it’s okay. I can just replace what is actually damaged.

With the new blog it is hard to rebuild your readers and etc again but in time it will bounce back. It won’t happen over night but giving me a chance to rebuild the audience and get good blogs out there in time will be amazing to get more notice.
