I am finally getting a holiday!

After a year from hell due to a delayed recovery from a routine operation, battling depression, nearly being discontinued from my university course and a messy break up.. I am finally getting away for a week!

I went to see my step mum (shes not exactly my step mum anymore seeing as her and my dad have split up but thats the best way to describe her) last night and one minute we was eating pizza and talking about boys.. the next minute she has booked us a holiday to Majorca. We are going to stay with her dad for a week and I am beyond excited to leave behind all my stresses and enjoy relaxing in the sun.

Im hoping that it will cheer me up a lot and that I can come home and get my life back in order before returning to university in August. Ive already started holiday shopping (obviously the best part of booking a holiday) but I am really struggling to find clothes that really impress me and does not show my bum cheeks or my nipples! please feel free to point me in the direction of some amazing summer clothes and cute swimwear!

Guess its time to work on my bikini body now I actually have a holiday booked!.. oh and I better apply for a new passport.

Friday night date night 

I always like to take my two little cousins out for something to eat and have them stay the night at least once a month. They are such lovely kids and they adore spending time with me and my mum. Alfie is nearly seven and although he can be annoying he is the apple of my eye. Darcie is three and a total brat but she’s so cute with it.

Tonight we went to creams cafe in Stevenage old town. It’s basically a dessert restaurant full of ice cream, pancakes and waffles! They also make the best milkshakes ever!

The food was amazing and the milkshakes tasted exactly like their chocolate bar flavours! For the four of us it came to  £30 which I thought was good value considering none of us could actually finish our desserts because they were so huge!

I opted for the hungry Jack’s apple pie and custard waffle with a kinder bueno white milkshake!


My mum went for the choc fudge hot-n-cold volcano. This was amazing!! Hot bits of chocolate fudge cake covered in ice cream, hot toffee syrup and chocolate sprinkles!

Alfie (a huge fan of bubblegum) obviously went for the bubblelicious sundae. Bubblegum, strawberry and vanilla ice cream with strawberry and bubblegum syrups all topped off with 100s and 1000s! He went for the m&m chocolate milkshake, which was so so yummy!

Darcie wanted pancakes so she got the crepe-au-nutella! Hot crepes covered in nutella spread with banana slices and topped with roasted chopped nuts! For a three year old that girl can eat and she demolished pretty much everything on her plate!

I would recommend creams cafe to everyone! There is something for everyone of all ages and taste and you get your moneys worth!

Revision

This morning I decided to start some revision. I have been off university for a few months now due to mental health reasons and I feel like I have forgotten everything! So I got my books out and started reading and taking notes…. five minutes later and I am bored senseless!

It has also dawned on me that I literally have no idea how revise! How do you make the information stay in your brain?! I have literally tried everything but I just get distracted and then I realise I have taken nothing in at all and end up rereading everything constantly..

So fellow bloggers I am needing your help, please help me learn to revise- Im training to be a nurse so all this information is beyond important!!!!!

Mothers Day

So first of all I hope all you mothers got absolutely spoilt yesterday by your loved ones yesterday!

Secondly, I would like to shout out to my own mother who is literally one in a million. Since my dad left she has literally made sure I have never wanted for anything, she has always made sure I have everything I want and need even if it meant that she would have to go without. Me and her are more like best friends, we tell each other everything, we argue like best friends and we get on like best friends. I have no idea what I would do without her, she has made me everything I am today and although I have put her through so much stress (especially lately) she is always there cheering me on and showing me support. I love her more than anything in this world, and she knows that even though we don’t say it much.

This mothers day I actually have a job which meant I could completely spoil my mum, just like she deserves. I got her the usual stuff: flowers, candles and pyjamas (her favourite things, and things you cannot go wrong with on mothers day) but I also have arranged a trip to London for a Skyline Afternoon Tea. Im super excited to go because, although its always just been me and mum, we have never done anything special like this together. So we are going to spend the day in the city having afternoon tea, shopping and getting very very drunk together!

The squad is growing by one!

I can finally tell the world- my best friend is expecting! Ive known for a while now and it has been  so hard to keep my mouth shut because I am beyond excited to have a little baby in the group! Everybody loves babies dont they (especially when its not yours and you can give it back when it poops) so the news is really exciting for me and my friends.

Emma has had such a tough time and she truly deserves to be happy. Now she has found someone she wants to spend her life with and they have created a new life- I could not be more happy or proud of her.

The baby is not due until the 3rd of October so you are all safe from baby spam for a few months yet but just a warning- the baby is going to be my own little blog mascot!

Hemsby

Hemsby is a little seaside village on the Norfolk coast, its very near to Great Yarmouth and isn’t the most pretty or fun places in the world- but it has hosted some of the best times of my life whilst I was growing up.

Since before I was born my Nan and Grandad have been going to Hemsby for weekends away and have always owned caravans there, they have even moved there twice (but always return back to where their family are). We we not the type of family that go abroad but the caravan made us a very close family and everybody was always happy whilst we was there.

The caravan was a site called “The Newport”. It has sandparks and a club house and an amusements (everything a child wants on holiday). The best bit was the club house! The kids would dance and run riot while the parents drank a lot of alcohol. Like very sensible grandparents mine would drive up the club house (because it was a whole five minutes walk to the caravan) and get soooo drunk and then would sit either me or my cousin on their lap on the way home and let us drive the car back the caravan. sensible. It wasnt dangerous (maybe a little bit) but it was literally just a straight road that led straight to the drive way of the caravan so it wasnt really as bad as it sounds! But as young children we thought we was really cool driving a car when in reality we was just sat on our grandparents laps while they done all the pedal work!

The club house used to have a children’s entertainment section before the adult band came on. This would involve playing silly dance games, pass the parcel and of course people in costumes- my favourite was Charlie the Chipmunk. Looking back, Charlie was very scary looking but at the time all the kids loved him and he was often the highlight of the night. He would dance and sing (so much fun!). However, now, as a 21 year old, I am absolutely petrified of anybody in costumes- and it is all thanks to Charlie the Chipmunk. One day I won the dancing competition and Charlie was handing out the prizes (I cannot explain to you how excited I was to be winning and going up on stage with the one and only Charlie the Chipmunk!) but poor charlie couldn’t see properly out of his costume (or because he was probably very drunk as well- the man inside the costume is a known alcoholic now) and he smacked me right in the head, pushing me off the stage in front of everyone! I now hate Charlie.

One of my favourite things ever whilst being down the caravan was going on long dog walks with my Grandad and Bailey (their King Charles Caviler). We used to walk along the beach for miles and miles and I would alway get an icecream at the end of it (that is probably the main reason I went). I loved spending that time with my Grandad because we are so close and  I know that when he isnt here I will also look back and have really fond memories of our time together, even if I did usually moan that my feet were hurting after walking for 2 hours.

Ive also met some friends for life down there. Even to do this day I still speak to some of the people I met there even though its been ten years! There was a group of us that were down there nearly every weekend and so we got very friendly and would spend our days and nights at the sandpark or on the beach! There was me, Danny, Bradley, Shaun and Jordan.. over the years more people were added to the group but we were the originals. I see Shaun and Bradley when I go down there now and we all keep in contact still. In fact Danny has just had a beautiful little boy, its amazing how we have all grown up together and how different all our lives have panned out.. so different from what we thought would happen.

So there is a little bit about my favourite place in the world and some of the memories that I have experienced there, writing this has made me realise I need to go back there soon because I miss how happy I am when I am there!

My Travel Bucket List

I would love to go travelling around the world. I know a lot of people that have been travelling around Australia and have had the time of their lives! but I am too much of a family girl to be away from my loved ones for that long especially on the other side of the world!

Here are just a few places that I would love to visit before I die:

The Maldives- I think everyone in the world would love to visit the Maldives. My mum and her partner went to Meeru island and it looked so beautiful and relaxing. I plan on visiting next summer with my mum as a graduation present!

 

Bali- A group of my friends visited bali for two weeks and their pictures looked like they had such a fun time! Not only did it look gorgeous but they got to have monkeys sit on their shoulders!! What more could you possibly want on a holiday?!

 

Sardinia- Im not sure why I want to go here. Ive always liked the thought of going to Italy and Sardinia looks amazing. It also has some of the best spa resorts in the world.. and you get to eat pasta and pizza all the time without feeling guilty? Why would you not want to visit?

 

Santorini- The only reason I want to visit here is because it looks gorgeous! Blue water, white sand and nice weather! The only thing you could ever want on a relaxing holiday!

 

New York City- I am a girl that LOVES shopping so why would I not want to visit NYC? not only that I would love to visit ground zero and take a trip in a yellow cab! After watching “sully” I would also love to visit just to see the Huddson River!

 

Bora Bora- This obviously goes without saying.. have you seen how beautiful it looks?! I think it would be much like the Maldives but why not visit two stunning places ey?

 

Jamaica- I know a few people that have been to Jamaica and they all say its one of the best places on earth. Not only is it a beautiful island but they say its the most relaxed and friendly places they have ever visited. The pictures that I have seen look incredible and is without a doubt somewhere I would love to visit at some point in my life!

 

Venice- I think I just want to visit every single part of Italy come to think of it!

 

Amsterdam- I just really want to visit Amsterdam to visit the sex museums Im not going to lie to you. Ive never smoked weed and I never really want to try it so I cant say that I want to go there just for that. It also looks very pretty and everyone that visits says what a lovely city it is. I think the fault in our stars shows just how beautiful it is and takes away the stigma that is linked to Amsterdam. Im also a bit of geek so I would love to visit the Ann Frank museum too. Im suppose to be going for my best friend’s 21st in June but at the moment I am not sure if that will happen (stay tuned- there is news coming)

 

Iceland- My main reason for wanting to visit Iceland is because of the blue lagoon. I think it looks stunning and soooo relaxing! I know people that have visited Iceland and they all say that is such a good experience and I would love to see the northern lights!
