June 2012 ... as I have Nothing Bizzare to Call this Blog!

Told my boyfriend how much I loved him this evening - a bit soppy, but it felt really good :)  He's such a fantastic person and even though I'm so far away from him at the moment, back at home, i know he's always deep in my heart ^_^*

Anyways, onto awesome stuff! - finally moving out of my hell-hole of a flat :D moving in with my awesome friends in August/September to our new house and it's going to be epic! This summer, I'm planning on working for a charity who run a nursary for young kids and disabled kids which sounds like fun.  After coming home as well, I finally recieved my birthday presents from my brother - he got me a DVD (Howl's Moving Castle) which I can't wait to watch and some "plastic squeezy decorators" in otherwords those things you use for piping icing - gonna have a LOT of fun with those as it gives me an excellent excuse to make cakes and biscuits :D ... am trying to loose weight ... i have a horrid feeling the cake won't help ...

ah yeah! about the pain ... so ... I had my splint off :D yeah ... I eventually had it off the week before Whittington, there was so much sewing that in the end, i was getting 4 hrs sleep a night just to finish half of it.  Needless to say, after the first day at show (3 day show in total) I had a terrible breakdown and eventually my friend Laura took me to one side and did yet more sewing with me around the campfire (alone) and taught me a new song :) It was a lovely afternoon and I eventually caught up with my group in the pub several hours later for a quick pint where I'd discovered that Guildford group had single handedly drunk ALL the hobgoblin...

In other news, two of Gavin's best friends got married earlier this year - they'll never read this blog, but i wanted to post "congratulations to Mr and Mrs Townend!" The wedding was in an old medieval hall and the mystery pastry Gavin put down from the menu for me was lovely :D Kirsty looked utterly stunning in her wedding dress and I seem to have made very good friends with her now which is awesome!  Just because it was so lovely, i will post a picture from the wedding for you :)

Oh the pain...

Oh wow - I'm sorry I didn't post last month; I admit, I've been a bit lazy...

It's a week before Easter holidays and I can't wait!  It's also only about 5 weeks till Whittington and I'm so excited!  So what's happened to me lately?  Well, first off, I had my toe bent back by a friend during a zombie nerf war 2 sundays ago for Dan's birthday.  To explain, we were zombies being shot at and i lay on top of my boyfriend Gavin as i pretended to die. Sarah was trying to crawl under the barricade on my left, so i moved my foot out of the way for her.  Jack then staggered up behind me and trod on my toe, bending it back.  No-one had any painkillers, so we had to kill the pain with alcohol ... 2 double rum and cokes for me ^_^*

The other accident I had was back in June last year where I was playing rugby on the beach for my friend Jordan's birthday and I tackled Chris all wrong, bending my arm back.  A few weeks ago, I was struggling to even just put clothes on in the morning and so I went to my doctor's who sent me to the hospital to have a splint fitted.  Sadly this means no training for me for the next 6 weeks, or sewing... but never mind.  So boooooooored!!!!

... And then I Became a bit of a Gamer!

I have a confession to make to you readers of my blog ... whoever you are ... I've recently been watching the play through of Assassins Creed online.  I've never been able to find a switch off in my life; I'm always thinking and analysing life, but now I can finally relax.  When I watch it being played, I forget everything in my life and can just exist in an imaginary world where nothing in reality matters and all my troubles melt away.

In other news, I have successfully caught up with my favourite gaming series "The Guild" and would definitely recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it :) I also bought a copy of Oblivion 4; I know I'm 5 years late, but my laptop won't run Skyrim which makes me sad :( Never mind.

So yeah, that's my gaming life at the moment; I think Gavin is secretly pleased that I'm slowly learning more about it and soon he might actually have a half decent player over the holidays for COD4 ... yeah ... that could be a while to be honest ... o.O....

What else ... ah yes :) I should tell you that our 1 year anniversary went brilliant!!!!  It was such a lovely night - we started out by cooking dinner at the flat and then we went out to the top of Williamson Park and cuddled together looking over to Morecambe Bay; it was really beautiful.  Anyways, pictures!

 This is the pie once it was finished and decorated by Gavin and I - it was lovely :)
 These were the chocolate rice crispie cornflake cakes I made for pudding ...
And I'm sorry, it was too tempting ... I made a cheese ruin with the blocks of cheese Gavin cut ... I tried to make a house, but it fell apart ... so that's why it's a ruin :) x

Just on my Mind

I just wanted to post today, to say that I love my boyfriend.  It's hard when you're in competition with your parents - they want something different to what you want.  They're always telling you to start listening to your head more because your heart always lands you into pain.  But I'm following my heart again and this time it's going to work.  Because I want it too.  People tell me I take life too seriously, that I take my relationship too seriously, my mum in particular.  But if I don't take this chance, if I lose a great opportunity, I may never have it back.  I make my new year's resolution this year to be less serious and to not care as much what people think.  It's not always the end of the world.  Oh, and the relationship thing...?  There are just a few times in life where family have to be put second, even though it breaks your heart treating them as somewhat less important.  But I've got to follow my heart.  I don't know where it's going to lead me, but I want to have the courage to go there and face those daemons head on.  And whilst I'm still with him, Gavin will always come first.
