Hello

Right well I have obvioulsy been MIA for a while now so thought it was time I blogged something, anything is better than nothing well maybe that's not true in my case but I'm going to give it a go anyway!
Firstly since it is a Friday thought I would start by saying "What's rocking my world" this week. Things rocking my world are, (in no specific order)
The Black Keys, definitely my favourite band at the moment, I listen to them in the living room, when I am in the bath, when I visit people, the car, pretty much anywhere that has a CD player.
The series Misfits on Channel 4, as, after last nights episode I have a major crush on  Simon. He's gorgeous and nerdy and very yum, plus it is a fantastic series!!!!
The fact it is nearly Christmas I am completely unprepared but I just love Christmas, pressie's, time with family, Christmas mushy films,seeing my daughter's face as she opens her gifts, just love it!!!!
Also loving being alive, it's no secret I have …

What's rocking my world this Friday!

Hello I have tried to get Virginia's button off her block but I don't know what to do once I have done that so I am just going to write what in fact is rocking my world here!
Well this week I have decided to try and start to put things back together after what has been a few rubbish months. So this on it's own has been a blessing in disguise. Firstly I cleared out my wardrobe and with this I have been fairly brutal unless I love it or can fit into it (or will be able to before Christmas), it has gone to the Charity shop. This has meant a very empty wardrobe so now given myself the excuse for a little retail therapy :)
I also took my mum to Sheffield last night for a few hours just to get out of the house but it turned into an interesting evening with plenty of conversation, who'd have thought that lol.
I have also made another 6 Christmas cards which has put my total of Christmas cards to 9 yippee.
Started healthy eating and already lost weight which is a boost really nee…

Hello fellow bloggers

Hello Well today has been seriously horrible weather wise but I haven't let that stop me doing things. I have bought some new craft stock wish I desperately needed. I have tidied my hovel hmmm sorry obviously meant home although it definitely started off more hovel than anything else! I have even put some newly acquired music on to my i-tunes, on my laptop. Which I have desperately missed but thankfully is back and in fully working order. I wanted to join in a little with Virginia and her what's rocking her Friday. The answer for me is my new album Mumford and sons, really enjoyed listening to every single song on there. My daughter as we shopped this week for an outfit for a school trip and to my joy and amusement my daughter ended up with an outfit I would have happily wore myself with some boots exactly like the one's I am currently wearing, like my sister said she's definitely a mini-me! lol
My new clothes, bought a few new items rather than waiting for that golden da…

Ha ha ha ha ha

Hello all, well this is the start of something new and exciting. Gone is the downtrodden depressed Melanie and here is the new and improved fantastic exciting Melanie, that does not procrastinate and instead makes a plan and carries it out.
I have decided to grab life by the proverbials and give it a real good shake. Then I am going to dust it off and put it on, that's right I am in fact now wearing life. Here, feels like a good time to put in some cliches, so life is too short, we only have one life, if you spend too long planning tomorrow you will miss today and my favourite well this isn't going to get the baby a new bonnet!
So what have I done so far, 1 - I have bought an address book, 2 - I have made 3, yes that's right 3 christmas cards. 3 - I have planned to buy a new kitchen table and chairs. Ok so the last one is just a plan but before you know it I will be writing that I have bought the new kitchen table and chairs and it is, in fact, in situ! 
This new leaf has lot…

Hello again, another exciting blog post lmao!

Just joking, nothing exciting about this post at all really! Thought I would give you a little update, it's going to be fairly cryptic but all the important stuff will be here! 

Weekend from hell all the positive ideas, decisions I had made and general plans went out of the window in a spectacular (Melanie) type of way! I have no-one I need to apologise too and no-one I need to avoid but myself! I seem to do great for a while then do something stupid that I then spend a month beating myself up about to then start all over again. The other day's post talking about my friend letting me down and I said with friends like her who needs enemies. Well apparently I do when I grow a brain and cut someone out that is bad for me I just take up from where they left off! So yes I'm an idiot who doesn't seem to learn from past misdemeanors but instead either repeats the same stupid mistakes or finds a whole bunch of new mistakes to make. 

Everyone who reads this will think I am giving…

Hello me again!

Well today has been an odd day to be honest! Haven't really done much caught up on 4 episodes of true blood been to my bro's for a coffee and a rant and bought an address book!
Yes that's right I made a plan to buy one then I went and bought one. Jude would be proud it's a Kath Kidston one I couldn't resist so preety! That's been about it for today really. Not feeling very motivated so I've done very little. Going to attempt to have a better day tomorrow than I may have something of interest to write even going to do a little crafting and try to upload it on to here if I can work out how to do that. Otherwise will have to enlist my lovely sister in helping with that. 
Right I'm going so TTFN x

Today is Wednesday I think?

So yes I'm back with vengence and a case of terrible-spelling-itis! However if I spend too long correcting my mistakes I won't end up writing anything!
So yesterday was a bit of a bad day nothing specific happened but sometimes due to the nothing happening scenario I feel down and it feels like a waste of a day! Today has been a slighly better day, got up early with lots of great plans then back felt a bit rubbish and I felt all unmotivated again. However I didn't let it stop me and I have been slowly working round the house doing the odd job. 
Thinking I am going to start making plans for Christmas and I know it sounds early but what with me being a single parent and all I'm hardly rolling in money. So my idea is to start preparing now and hopefully it will take the stress out of it later. I am by nature a procrastinator (think that is the right word) so what I say and what I do isn't always the same thing! 
I have started by making lists which as lovely sister tells…

MISSING IN ACTION

Ok it's official I'm converting this artistic crafty blog into a chatty one because i can do that without a problem.  I've hit thirty it was scary but I'm still here and I've survived so now I'm officially grown up - actually nah I'm not I'm just the same old me!  
I have had one of the worst hair cuts ever - the hairdresser seemed to think I was a boy and wanted something similar to a crue cut - Tom Cruise Top Gun circa 1980 doesn't have anything on me!  The reason I've not been online is that my laptop is broken - how you may ask?
A friend in need turned into the spawn of satan and used my laptop as a weapon of mass destruction by picking the laptop in its lovely case (also containing my digital camera) and throwing i with great force across the road at her brother's departing back!  She then proceeded to threaten with suicide and when I refused to leave due to my worry for her she called the Police to have me forceably removed.
I haven't …
ok I am back by public demand. People seem to need wit, so I will do the best I can if I miss by a mile then at least you will all know I have tried. Fortunately there are actually many funny things to put on here so off we go.

I am, as some of you will know extremely blessed in the hair department, I have luscious dark hair on my head, legs, armpits well I'll stop there but you obviously get the picture so after trying pretty much everything from electrolysis, wax, shaving, plucking etc. I have succumbed to petty advertisements and bought the new epillator or as I now call it the torture devise! Hurts like nobodies business but after about four hours work each day for a week I am hair free. An it is pretty much guaranteed to stay like that for at least a week and a half then I can look forward to another 7 days of torture. Lucky me hey!

But that was last week, this week has been a mixed bag of craziness. Worked all week then Thursday I went shopping for a dress couldn't find …

It's all good fun and games till someone gets poo'ed on!

Well that is exactly how I feel, I am currently moving job locations from a very small 2.3 mile journey to 24.0 miles on the M1 something I am not looking forward to at all. However during my meeting yesterday I was dumbfounded to find out that according to my new work (that are going to be paying me a travel allowance for all the extra travelling I am going to have to do) I live 5.6 miles from my current job. Pants is all I have to say, followed by "it takes me 25 minutes to walk it, so unless I am an olympic gold medallist walker then your calculations are wrong"

Hopefully this will be sorted and I won't have to prove the distance my driving them in my car to my house but I should warn them unless they sort it then that is what I will do!

I'm now trying desperately to think of something bright and breezy to prove that normally I am a very happy person but as I am failing miserably instead I will write a selection of happy words and leave you with the promise that I…

Hello

I thought I would get myself a blog, as Virginia enjoys it so much and Jude awarded me a blog award so thought I should do something to deserve it. Still not entirely sure if i will have anything of interest to write but I'll let you lot be the judge of that! Well it's mother's day and my lovely daughter bought me a card some flowers and a teddy. The card has a badge on that I am at this very moment wearing it makes me look very special but my daughter is happy so that's the main thing! I am wondering about how to fit more things into my day there doesn't seem to be enough hours in a day. Virginia and my mum have done loads of art journalling and I don't seem to have done any. I recently have got a boyfriend and so I have dramatically less time than I used to have. So now I have had a little waffle i'm going, but will be back xxx
