What a Year!

So it has been a while since I last blogged and let me tell you it has been one hell of a year! There have been many highs and quite a few lows.

This year has taught me a lot of life lessons, the true meaning of friendship, the true value of family and do what makes you happy and not what other people want.

Firstly the biggest shock of our year was my brother was diagnosed with cancer in February, this turned our whole world upside down. You don't realise how much you take for granted and how lucky we are until you are faced with a situation like this. To say this changed my whole outlook on life and the way I treat everyday and everyone is a understatement, I realised just how precious life is and whenever we say oh we will get around to calling that person or doing something, get up and do it! You never know when it is your last day on this earth.  As the month' drew on receiving chemo and three major operations my brother become the strongest person in my eyes, he fought everyday to kick cancer in the butt and he did. After his third operation and seven long month we were told that my brother was now cancer free but would be due regular check ups for the next 5 years. We felt like we could breath again, we know there is a chance it could come back but for now we are making the most of the life we have.

I got offered what I thought was a perfect job opportunity and made that leap thinking nothing ventured and nothing gained and it didn't turn out for the best as it fell through within two days. For a few days I wanted to curl up and wallow but this year taught me that you need to keep moving forward and keep your head high and now I am on my second month in my new job and I couldn't be happier, I now work for an amazing company and the nicest people I have ever met and I am thankful for the opportunity given to me.

I have had a few amazing adventures with my friends and they have what helped me get through this year. Without them I don't honestly think I would have made it, but I am thankful for having them in my life and I am looking forward to many more next year.

I've learned a lot this year and plan to make the most of the 2015, I already have a few things in the pipeline with days out and conventions and it is going to be an EPIC year!

Stay tuned for adventures in January!!

Rotten weather

So i am back to work today and what a miserable start to the day it has been the weather is rotten. I like rain but when you add wind to the mix it sucks big time. Shelby is sulking like mad because she can't play outside due to the weather. 
Wonder when we are going to get some snow :-)

New Year, New Start

It's the start of a new year, so to me that is a new start to make this the best year so far!
My start to this new year was not a good one, I ended up with yet again another chest infection which knocked me off my feet for a week. Hey it could be a lot worst so I am quiet happy that I am back to work tomorrow and getting to leave the house.
This year I am vowing that I will do the following;
- Write more, I vow to write a minimum of 250 words a day
- BLOG more
- Take MORE photos
- Laugh more and take time to have fun with my friends and loved ones
- Finally get my act in gear to moving out
- Get myself in better shape now I don't expect to be a supermodel by this time next year but I do want to slim down and start eating healthier and better

This is the year I want to start living and be the person who I want to be!

Lately i have been doing a lot of soul searching and trying to figure out the one question i hate

Who am I?

Well easy ones first i am a daughter, sister and a friend
What i can tell you about me is i am dreamer but a realistic. I follow my feet when i am lost and so far i always find my way. I whistle when i am happy but when i whistle it always seems to be the robin hood and little john tune :-) 
My family mean the world to me, where they are is where i will always be.
I love to write, this is my passion and my outlet.
I see the inner beauty of things other people say are ugly.
The smallest pleasures make me smile like the smell of a dew in the morning, the sight of a sunset and the sound of birds chirping in the morning. 
I am a lefty and do my ticks backwards i have always done this so please don't ask to change

Music is my muse 

I am a dreamer 

To me there is no limit

This is me so please don't ask me to be anything other then me

Well it is that time of year again, tis the season to be jolly. I know we have ages to go well 35 days, 9 hours, 33 mins to be exact but who's counting. I am! for some reason I am really looking forward to Christmas this year, I don't know if it because this year has made me realise how much family count and how so little time we possibly could have with our loved ones and to make everyday count.

Now this year has had it's fair share of ups and downs, sadly I lost my dear Grandad in August and it has left a huge void in my family but to bring some comfort it has brought my family closer.

Looking forward to 2014 I am going to make this the year that amazing things happen!

Best highlight of this year

HW5!!!!!! epic adventures, meeting new guests and seeing old friends

Moving Forward

So lately I have been really struggling with my confidence and where I want to be, or thinking where should I be?
So moving forward a have joined a writer's website called FictionPress and starting to upload a few projects that I have been working on, on and off.
Please take a look at I really would love some honest constructive feedback so I can push forward and hopefully one day turn my writing in to something more, because it is one of my many passions in this world.
