Red Lips & Rosy Cheeks



Well Hello there!

A huge amount of time has passed and a whole lot has changed since my last post. I have missed blogging and writing so so much in the past month or two that I have been absent from the WWW but I intend to be back to stay!

Anyway - I hope you are well and have been loving the transition into Autumn/Winter with the crunchy leaves, scarves and hats <3

So here are my excuses as to why I have been slacking....

I am now finally in the house which I spoke about previously. James and I got the keys on the 9 October and spent a week totally redecorating and making it our own.
What we thought was going to take a few licks of paint and a handful of days to complete turned into a mammoth overhaul of every room; repapering, flooring, ceilings, kitchen appliances, the whole hog. And of course took 10 days rather than the three expected. What a pair of muggins!

It has been roughly a month of actually living in the house and so far, touch wood, there has been no issues and I have been LOVING it. It still feels totally surreal that James and I have our own home, our own collection of bricks and our own garden. That we have keys to somewhere we can call our own and have the foundations of our future set in place for the next few years until a bambino comes along. I hope!

The transition to becoming a fully fledged adult is well underway with a few weekly shops and an extra handful of bills under my belt. But I am enjoying it all. Even going to visit parents and family is nicer than what it was before as it becomes a treat and something to look forward to rather than being the norm.

Moving house aside, I am now addicted to The Walking Dead.
What. A. Show.
I am now into the 3rd series by about 3 or four episodes. THE GOVNOR IS FREAKING ME OUT! I need to know more about why he is so darn WEIRD! He is clearly messed up. And the samurai chick. She is bad ass. And is it kind of weird that I ever so slightly want to know what it would be like to be in the midst of a zombie apocalypse for a day or two. I wouldn't want to die or get eaten or anything, but just kick some zombie butt. Also, Rick & Lori (RIP) are incredibly poor at parenting. They constantly go on about looking after Carl, but there he goes, off wandering into the hands of a furiously hungry and festering Walker. Girl, you got to get your priorities straight!

Something that slides in nicely next to The Walking Dead is Bad Lip Reading which is a channel on YouTube. It is hands down one of the cleverest, funniest and most random things I have watched. If you haven't seen it, you must! And if you have, then watch some more! The NFL videos are incredible too! Let me know what you think!

Other than that I have been up to a whole lot of nothing much. I've been to see The Woman in Black in the theatre which is really good, quite jumpy but was really well put together considering it only consists of three actors.

I have also been having an issue with the dreaded garden nemesis. The neighbours cat. Or cats!
My garden of late has become a giant litter tray for the cats in my street. And it better not be the cute ginger cat that sits in the window opposite every morning. Cos that cat is cute. And I have a lot of time for that kitty.

For the other cats relieving yourself amongst my pansies, PISS OFF! OR I WILL COME AT YOU WITH A FIST FULL OF CHILLI POWDER FURY!

Now don't get me wrong, I love all animals, but you try putting up with an ever growing collection of shit in your garden. I wouldn't want my pets doing it in other peoples shrubs and I know it isn't something the owner can control. But my dislike towards it is something which I can't control either. If anyone knows of anything to deter these pesky pooers please let me know. I have already been out in my garden sprinkling chilli flakes, coffee and oranges complete with a peg adorning my nose whilst the removal of the crap took place. I even dreamed about it I am that enraged!

I am also soooo soo soo looking forward to Christmas, particularly decorating my tree with all the baubles I have recently bought - side note, Wilkinsons is amazing for decs this year! So cute and right up my street!! I really want a wreath and loads of festive candles. Ahhh I adore this time of year!

Let me know what you have been up to and anything that I have missed out on whilst I had a little break

Loads of love xoxo
