Appreciative


One thing I lack (which is really rather bad :s) is appreciation. I take a lot for granted until it's gone and don't stop to say thank you often enough. I'm not sure why but it seems to slip my mind as I know I definitely think "Omg thank you, this is so thoughtful" But I have to actually make an effort to get those words out.

But why?

I think this coming year and from now on I shall conciously resolve to say 'Thank you' more for the things I really aught to, and not just think it but show it, say and express it more openly. Maybe it's just I'm not very good at showing gratitude? I mean, my parents never show gratitude for anything so perhaps this has spread onto me; it's such a shame.



What are you thankful for?

No other time

There is no other time when one gets most creative with outfits than when you have a massive pile of washing to do.  We try and make items of clothing work which we wouldn't usually put together in our "favourites" piles of clothes that we usually fancy wearing at that stage of time.
This truly fascinates me how I can manage to come up with some strange but kind of quirky outfits when I have (apparently) no clothes to wear. I have a fairly limited wardrobe as it is, being quite large and not being able to afford the clothing in the shops that actually make decent clothing for me (decent being that it won't fall apart after 2 washes and plus size)
Ah well. I just thought I'd share this. eBay is a fabulous place for clothing if you're a different sized body shape than the "norm". Thrifting can be interesting, it's rare to find anything but when you do it's a real gem of a plus size piece! Sales are fantastic for people who will pick up that garment that no one else like because it's not following the current fashion stream.
So yes, just to end, here are a pair of cherubs my boyfriend got me for Christmas; I love them :)

So it turns out...

Well, I get one of my things on my list crossed off a lot sooner than I thought possible.

11) Save and buy a Ford KA!

I mean OMG. It just by chance that a guy crashed into my parked car during the icy/snowy weather and by chance I got some money because of it and by chance I managed to save up enough from birthday and Christmas money to buy a Ford KA! :D
I'm so pleased, this was one of the points on the list that I didn't think I'd even cross off before my 21st birthday but looks like it's dubbed and honored as the first and what a wonderful first one it is!

Now time for the long phone calls about insurance and tax.

Yay!

Snow

Neighbours back garden


So, the part of England I live in has finally been hit with the bad snow. It's softly blizzarding outside at the moment. I wish I could say "woohoo" but it's terribly inconvenient. And to add to that some stupid boy crashed into my parked car yesterday, so I'm not sure how that pans out. I may not have a car and we were supposed to be driving to my other halves family this Monday.


So as I write this the snow has gotten worse and is now really blizzarding. Please snow, go away for next week, I need to get things done :( Come back on Christmas eve. -nod-
At least I've gotten all my Christmas shopping done :)


Update: The snow has built up on my windows hehe.


Update: Biiiig flakes. lol

21 things before I'm 21

O mai

So, I've hopped on and finally thought of 21 things, they may not be as exciting as some of them but I'm really excited about it and actually following through with it.
I first saw this on the Blog, Yes and Yes and thought it was a really neat idea at the time. Now that I've turned 20 I feel I should actively do things that I haven't really been doing so much of before and trying to involve myself and the people around.

So here it is:

1) Drive to the Beach
2) Go for a Fish Pedicure
3) Raise at least £100 for a good cause
5) Grow some vegetables and make a meal with them
6) Lose the weight I've gained in the last 6 months
7) Hold a car boot sale stall
8) Get a professional massage
9) Make some paper
10) Visit my best friend in Sweden
11) Save and buy a Ford KA car
12) Go on a random road trip
13) Learn how to make a curry base so I don't have to use a recipe every time
14) Go to the cinema on my own
15) Grow my Hair long and dye it lighter
16) Give Blood
17) Sell some things on eBay like a real seller
18) Make a trade by post package of cute, creative and fun things with someone
19) Read as many of the books as possible on the BBC's 100 list
20) Spend an day/night under the clouds/stars - Or both
21) Save up £2100 (Hehe get it? 21 - I'm so witty)

EDIT: So, I've re-thought my list as some of them seemed quite similar. Bring on the funz :P

PS: I tend to change random points for less selfish ones when I think of them. 'kay.

Wish me luck! And tell me if any of you are trying this too? :)

First off...

My bunch of flowers from my boyfriend for my birthday :)

So the Birthday was nice, I came home from work to a lovely "Sagittarius" bunch of flowers. They smell lovely.
And really go well with the colour of my room xD I was impressed the boyfriend managed to get that.

So yes, I've been wanting to try this for a while now, but limitations, limitations. I know that's a poor excuse :P
Anyway.
It's the "X number before I'm X age" challenge.
I'm going to see if I can think of 21 things to try before I'm 21. Forgive me if they aren't so adventurous or anything, it's my first time! Hehe.
I shall think of them today and more than likely post them in the new post. :D
