365 Project Page

This is my project 365 from 2010.

December
Friday 31st December 2010.
I spent new years with the lads and Tambra. We played games, had fireworks, wore super cool 2011 glasses and just saw the new year in together. I cannot believe 2010 has gone by in such a flash! I could seriously cry at how hard, how fun and how enjoyable it was all at the same time!

Thursday 30th December 2010.
I bought some games to play for new years eve so I tested them out my brother and sister.

Wednesday 29th December 2010.
I have been such a scoffer with food this year. I sat in front of the TV tonight and just ate chocolate all evening.

Tuesday 28th December 2010.
For the first time in years I had to write a handwritten letter. I think it's a shame everything is typed now but man did my wrist ache afterwards.

Monday 27th December 2010.
My friend James bought these for me at Christmas. I love them!

Sunday 26th December 2010.
I spent Boxing day changing my stuff from my old bag to my new bag and purse. I love the butterflies!

Saturday 25th December 2010.
This is the least festive photo I was expecting from the day but I cant help but laugh. My sister bought a Reindeer racing game and my Uncle decided to use "protective" equipment for his reindeer. It lost, miserably in the race still. Prancer won by a mile! We could not stop laughing!!!!

Friday 24th December 2010.
My older sister finally got engaged to her boyfriend. He proposed with a Christmas card and a one off custom made ring. My whole family are so happy for them!

Thursday 23rd December 2010.
The last of the Christmas presents have been wrapped and ready to exchange with our families.

Wednesday 22nd December 2010.
The Christmas quiz was packed so the lads and I decided to play some pool and got to the arcade instead. The boys LOVE this air hockey, they get so competitive.

Tuesday 21st December 2010.
I woke up to a snow blizzard outside my window!

Monday 20th December 2010.
Today I went and gave blood. It hurt a lot more this time but the best bit was getting my friend James to donate too!

Sunday 19th December 2010.
No picture.

Saturday 18th December 2010.
I did a thing of firsts and had a Saturday night IN for a change. I chilled out in bed with my Cat reading books.

Friday 17th December 2010.
Our living room is slowly filling up with Christmas cards. It makes the room look more festive and I love all the messages from our loved ones :)

Thursday 16th December 2010.
Sadly Charlie (one of my elderly friends I used to care for ) passed away at the beginning of December. Today was his funeral and at his wake his daughters did this fantastic display of his life in pictures. I'll miss him a lot he was such a character!

Wednesday 15th December 2010.
I went for a Christmas meal with the girls this evening. This was the secret Santa bag we had to hide our gifts in!

Tuesday 14th December 2010.
Happy Birthday Oli! I rang him as a surprise in Spain last wee. He was thrilled so I thought I'd take another sneaky picture to surprise him even more!

Monday 13th December 2010.
I love walking downstairs and the Christmas tree being the first thing I see. It reminds me it is nearly Christmas!!!

Sunday 12th December 2010.
Tambra and I made Christmas dinner for us and the lads. Seeing as we cooked the meal the boys had to wash up. It was the deal we struck, was amusing though.

Saturday 11th December 2010.
We were all out tonight to celebrate Danny turning 22. I cannot say enough how much I enjoy spending my time with these guys!

Friday 10th December 2010.
We have put up our Christmas tree!!! I loved it as we listened to Christmas songs as well.

Thursday 9th December 2010.
All my Christmas gifts are wrapped and ready to put under the tree. I went for a green and purple theme this year.


Wednesday 8th December 2010. 
FINALLY got around to posting off my Christmas cards and Oli's birthday present. Been so busy lately I haven't had the time.

Tuesday 7th December 2010.
I love new bed sheets, not a fan of putting the clean sheets on the bed though.




Monday 6th December 2010.
My road is starting to put up their outside Christmas lights. This is the one opposite my house, love it!

Sunday 5th December 2010.
Slowly making my through my advent calendar. I got in Angel today.

Saturday 4th December 2010.
My friend Sam recommended this book and it is amazing. I have not stopped reading it since I bought it. I spent my Saturday night IN for once reading it.

Friday 3rd December 2010.
It was NOT FUN to be driving to work in this temperature. It was FREEZING and my car felt it too.

Thursday 2nd December 2010.
I went sledging with the guys in the snow and had to walk home as the roads were icy. This was the scene at the top of my road. I reminds me of Narnia with the snow and the lamp.

Wednesday 1st December 2010.
We had more heavy snowfall tonight. It fell down thick and fast. My car was covered in minutes.

November
Tuesday 30th November 2010.
I woke up to this scene outside my window this morning. I love snow. There is something so beautiful and transient about it. I hope it melts away soon though so I can drive to work.

Monday 29th November 2010.
My Mum went Christmas shopping today and was given a load of perfume samples as freebies. I love freebies and I adore perfume. I like to smell good. These are from the SJP collection!

Sunday 28th November 2010.

We celebrated Tambra's 22nd birthday by going to see Harry Potter at the IMAX. The film was so good and I loved watching it on the massive screen. Tambra also really liked her duck links charm :). The ticket will be my keepsake.

Saturday 27th November 2010.
I went and visited my Brockhill buddies from my previous job. It was so lovely to catch up and Grace gave me my first Christmas gift. Love it!!!

Friday 26th November 2010.
I went for dinner round Kev and Sach's place tonight. They announced they are having a BABY!!! next July. It was totally unexpected and I am SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!

Thursday 25th November 2010.
 Whenever I do an early shift my Cats irritate me the whole time when I wake up as they want to be fed. They pester and pester. This is Appleby chomping down her breakfast after nagging me for 15 minutes.


Wednesday 24th November 2010. 
The one thing I do like about the night shift is driving home to bed when everyone else is going to work.


Tuesday 23rd November 2010.
 One of the things I hate about doing the night shift is driving to work when everyone else is driving home to bed. Sucks!

Monday 22nd November 2010.
I received an email from my local MP about my disgust at the NHS cuts. I am thankful he replied. I just hope he listens!

The partying went straight into the early hours of the morning. We got very merry!


Saturday 20th November 2010.

Christmas card writing has begun! I love the cards I picked out - so cute!!!

I have started clearing out the junk from my old car. Safe to say a lot of thrown away. These baskets go in my boot.


Tuesday 16th November 2010.
I went and did some Christmas gift wrapping today. I haven't broken out the Christmas songs just yet but I do love getting ahead early and wrapping the gifts :)


Monday 15th November 2010.
I went to see Les Miserables at the Queens Theatre, London. It was spectacular considering it was not high on my list to see. The story was so moving and I was captivated by it all.


Sunday 14th November 2010.
I had missed Strictly last night as I was working a late shift. So I spent my Sunday afternoon catching up on it with BBC i-player. I love this show so much! Matt to win!!!


Saturday 13th November 2010.
I bought my friend Katie a Westwood Rocks ring for her birthday this week. I really want one for myself now!


Friday 12th November 2010.


Ticket to be used in place of photo.


I introduced James to Charlies Choys tonight and then afterwards we went to see Due Date. We got the tickets free as James's brother works there, how kind of him! It was a pretty humorous film!


Thursday 11th November 2010.
I had to get some stamps at the post office this morning. I was offered regular stamps or festive stamps. I chose festive stamps and they are Wallace and Gromit stamps. How adorable!!!


Wednesday 10th November 2010.
Since the clocks have gone back it gets darker (and colder) so much earlier now. This is sunset at 4pm!


Tuesday 9th November 2010.
After work tonight I had to defrost my car which I really hate doing. So I amused myself by imprinting my hand print in the frost.

Monday 8th November 2010.


I received my 2nd letter from Wilson this morning. This kid knows how to make my week!


Sunday 7th November 2010.
Rachael and I made chocolate brownies tonight with fudge sauce. For my first attempt at baking I was impressed and they tasted really nice too!


Saturday 6th November 2010.


I was early for work so I waited in my Car for a bit. I was encased by autumnal trees. It was so so so pretty!


Friday 5th November 2010.
It is quite rare for breaking news to happen in my area but I was shocked to see this happen so close to me. I hope everyone survives.


Thursday 4th November 2010.


Picture to come.


I have my new Car!!!! Ruby the Red Corsa is a dream to drive. I really deserve this piece of extravagance and I cannot wait to drive her around!


Wednesday 3rd November 2010.
Last day driving my Clio around :( It has been the perfect starter Car and barely caused me any problems. I will miss it.


Tuesday 2nd November 2010.
I started emptying out my car in preparation for my NEW Car. I will be sad to leave my Clio but I am so excited to get my hands on my new Corsa! These are baskets full of the rubbish I had stored in my Car.


Monday 1st November 2010.
Still feeling all bunged up full of rubbish. Had to snort this all day to help keep it unblocked at work :(


Sunday 31st October 2010.
Whilst searching for my new car today I started feeling flu like. I got home and was all bunged up and scratchy throat. It was out with the beechams and hot drinks to make me feel better.


Saturday 30th October 2010.
I love fireworks and the lads and I went to Ripley fireworks and bonfire show. It was so pretty and the fun fair was great too whilst eating candyfloss.


Friday 29th October 2010.
I was shattered tonight and cuddled up in my duvet at the PC to catch up on Home and Away.


Thursday 28th October 2010.
I have been so excited for Taylor Swift's new album to come out. Her lyrics make me giggle and make me cry. I have it on repeat!


Wednesday 27th October 2010.
I regularly fill charity bags with my old clothes and bric-brac. It gets rid of clutter and goes for a great cause!


Tuesday 26th October 2010.
One thing I hate about winter is that you have to get up early to de-frost the Car. I had to do that this morning, not happy.


Monday 25th October 2010.
Meet Thatcher/Blue. He is a new Cat to our neighbourhood who has a loving home but likes to camp outside our front door. He is so affectionate and I wish we could have him.


Sunday 24th October 2010 
I went dog walking with James at Horsell common and we saw a rainbow. It was so pretty. It must have been my lucky day!

Saturday 23rd October 2010
This week my Car tyre went flat at the most inconvenient time. So I thought it was best to inflate air into all my tyres with the help of my mate James - good job I did. They were low! 

Friday 22nd October 2010
Once I got home from my late shift I got to work pre-planning my 20 day blog challenge. I'm enjoying the topics to talk about :)


Thursday 21st October 2010
The winter is starting to creep in. We had our first ground frost of the season, not looking forward to winter now. I hate really cold weather.

Wednesday 20th October 2010. 
 I love having new clean bed sheets and tonight I did exactly that whilst watching The Apprentice.

Tuesday 19th October 2010
I have to do lots of mini courses now that I qualified to keep up to date. This being one of the many!

Thursday 14th October 2010. 
James managed to wing free tickets to see Sister Act and there are no words in the dictionary to describe how brilliant it was. The set, songs and comedy was awesome. I must see it again someday, we had such good seats!

Wednesday 13th October 2010.
The college girls celebrated Sam's 22nd birthday at TGI Fridays. She had to wear this birthday hat made of balloons and she really liked the clothes we bought her.

Tuesday October 12th 2010. 
It is coming to the end of Cat sitting Pie and I am going to miss as much as his squealing has irritated me. He is so cuddly and great company.

Monday 11th October 2010
It was the first day of my surgical induction today. I was feeling pretty apprehensive and had tow ear my uniform for the first time. It went okay though.

Sunday 10th October 2010

James came over and we vegetated in front of the TV with yummy cake! We also watched the film Seven - wicked movie!

Autumn is starting to kick in and the trees are starting to shed. I think the colours are so pretty, it is my favourite part about the Autumnal season.

Tuesday 5th October 2010.
I was cleaning up my room and I have finally finished watching season 1 of Glee! I cannot wait for the 2nd season to start in the new year. It now sits proudly with my friends and sex and the city box set.

Monday 4th October 2010.
Today i started induction at Ashford Hospital. I had to wear this sticky label all day. I can't wait to wear my real nurses one someday soon.

Sunday 3rd October 2010.
James and I took Jillie for a walk on Horsell common this afternoon. She is such a water dog. She was running in and out of all the puddles and lakes. She was soaked but still very cute!

Saturday 2nd October 2010.

A couple of weeks ago I sent out photo books to my uni friends documenting our time together in our training. This morning I received a really sweet thank you card from Katie. It made my Saturday!

Friday 1st October 2010.
Kathryn, Becca and I celebrated Emma turning 22 this evening. We went out to a Beefeater for dinner. She loved getting her presents!

September

I went and saw The Blues Brothers tonight. I did not know what to expect but I did enjoy it, especially when we got to dance to "Flip Flop Fly" :) The ticket is being used in the album.

Wednesday 29th September 2010.
James and I took Jillie for a walk but to a new wooded area. She LOVED it, even if it did rain and she got into a fight with a dog. 

Tuesday 28th September 2010.

James and I decided to try out a Chinese restaurant near us. It was really nice but we were so full we could not finish it. I will get a picture soon!

Monday 27th September 2010.
It was my last shift working at Brockhill today and I got some more cards, flowers and pens. I loved going through them all afterwards. I will miss them all so much.

Sunday 26th September 2010.
I have a thing where I have to get my clothes ready for the next day the night before. It was the last time getting my work uniform ready. It was kind of sad knowing that the next day was my last shift ever.

Saturday 25th September 2010.
It was my last weekend working at Brockhill and I received some good luck cards from the residents. I am going to miss them more than I realised.

Friday 24th September 2010.
Mum and Dad arrived home from their trip to Eastbourne this morning. They brought me a shell that was related to my star sign. It sits on my desk.

Thursday 23rd September 2010.
It was damp, miserable and it rained non-stop all day. Even Appleby didn't want to go out.

Wednesday 22nd September 2010.
I am trying to eat quite healthily at the moment. I have created a drawer in the fridge full of the "good" stuff.

Tuesday 21st September 2010.
It was a sunny day so I went on a dog walk. I really enjoy walking my friend James's Dog, Jillie. She is so well behaved (most of the time).

Monday 20th September 2010.
I got the pictures developed from the party today. This is my favourite one from the day of my brother and sisters. I had it framed.

Sunday 19th September 2010.
It was my Gran's surprise 80th birthday party today! She enjoyed herself and loved her cake. It was so nice to have the whole family there. I love this picture because it is my Gran with all her grandchildren.

Saturday 18th September 2010.

I received a letter from Wilson my sponsored child. He drew me a beautiful picture of a sunshine in a field. I have kept the letter to put in this day's picture.

Friday 17th September 2010.
I had to have my left big toe operated on today. This is it all bandaged up. On the bright side hopefully no more inflammation or infections!

Thursday 16th September 2010.
I by accidentally ordered 141 project 365 photos for my album the wrong size and the shop would not correct it. So I spent two hours drawing margins to reduce them to the size I wanted! It was so tedious!

Wednesday 15th September 2010.

I went to the quiz with the cavalry tonight and we got our highest score to date. I kept the score sheet we used.

Tuesday 14th September 2010.
HAPPY 80TH BIRTHDAY GRAN!!! 
I bought her a massive sweetie jar with lots of her favourites sweets from childhood to present. 

Monday 13th September 2010.
The weather was miserable today so I was miserable at work. Autumn/Winter is officially here.

Sunday 12th September 2010.

Today I have printed an article from the Sunday Newspaper. It features the story of a local school teacher who was told she would die from a brain tumour. She received life saving treatment in the USA and made it to her wedding day. I have followed her story for around 2 years and she is an amazing inspiration! Link here

Saturday 11th September 2010.
Chris leaves for university next week which is when his 22nd birthday is. So we celebrated the weekend before instead by going for a curry and having some drinks :)

Friday 10th September 2010.
I bought these rings in Portugal and I LOVE wearing them. They are quirky and pretty much go with anything.

It was our last day after a brilliant holiday. This was our last snap before flying back home to England.

Wednesday 8th September 2010.

Photo to come from para-sailing day.

We watched some traditional Portuguese dancing at the hotel tonight after dinner.

Sunday 5th September 2010.

Photo to come from dolphin day.

Saturday 4th September 2010.
We tested out the beach today but the waves were so strong they were carrying us out to sea. So we headed back to the pool and lounged around there all day. It was pretty idyllic.

Friday 3rd September 2010.
The girls and I went out into "The Strip" this evening and had some cocktails. I stupidly dropped mine on the floor but the music in the club was awesome!

Thursday 2nd September 2010.
2.45am was not the best time to be getting up to catch a plane but it was pretty watching the sunrise whilst waiting to board the plane.

Spent today last minute packing for Portugal tomorrow!
August
Tuesday 31st August 2010.
I went out for a curry with Becca, Sach and Emma tonight. It was delicious!

Monday 30th August 2010.
The lads and I have really started to enjoy playing pool. I am rubbish at it but it is always a laugh, especially when the guys take it really seriously.

Sunday 29th August 2010.
It was a lovely sunny afternoon. This sunflower in our garden stands out beautifully!

Saturday 28th August 2010.
Rachael (little sister) went ans collected her first Car this morning. It is a mint green Fiat Punto and she won't stop driving it around.

Friday 27th August 2010.
Can you see why I miss the blue sky? I was not amused to go to work this morning in this depressing weather.

Thursday 26th August 2010.
I spent my last day doing exactly what I have been doing all week. I laid by the pool and chilled out until I had to go to the airport. I hate saying goodbyes but I had a fabulous time with Oli and gang. If only I had a few extra days. I will miss that blue sky!

Wednesday 25th August 2010.
It was Nicole's (centre) last night so we had some drinks and a chatter at Salamandra before saying goodbye. Charley (Oli's sister) came over as well to join in for a bit. 

Tuesday 24th August 2010.
One of my favourite Spanish foods is Ensamadas! It is a Spanish pastry with lots of icing sugar. Poor calorie count but just tastes.so.nice.com. I quite often had it for breakfast.
Monday 23rd August 2010.
I made it pretty evident during my stay with Oli that I have a degree in Nursing. As a treat Oli took me for a slap up Chinese meal along the Port of Mahon (you can kinda see the Port in the background). Eating and chatting whilst the sun was setting over the Port was beautiful. It was my favourite evening :)

Sunday 22nd August 2010.
I was feeling a little fragile today from the night before. So whilst Oli was at work I went for a roam around the town and took some photos. This one is my favourite. The beach is just beautiful in Calan' Porter.

Saturday 21st August 2010.
It was the St Climente fiestas! Each town in Spain celebrate their patron with a street party of pomadas, music, rides and dancing. I just loved being apart of the atmosphere. It was so good to see the town alive and buzzing. Plus, I got quite merry on the Pomada - lethal!
Friday 20th August 2010.
After a day spent by the poolside I caught up with Kelle and Nicole in Flava bar! I met them two years ago and it was SO nice to see them again. They are two awesome girls :)

Thursday 19th August 2010.
After my flight was delayed at Gatwick airport I finally made it to Menorca. It was great chatting with Oli and catching up well into the early hours.

Wednesday 18th August 2010.
I have been on a manic panic ironing and sorting out my clothes ready for Menorca. I love going on holiday but the planning drives me insane.

Tuesday 17th August 2010.
I hardly ever have time to see Karl so tonight we went to see The A Team in the cinema. It was a great film full of action and humour. It was also really good to spend some time with Karl as we hardly see each other.

Monday 16th August 2010
I'm still getting Congratulation cards in the post from relatives. I love it, I still have the buzzing feeling that I actually did it :)

Sunday 15th August 2010.
I have always wanted to buy this film but never got round to it. Well I bought it and watched it. It has to be one of the most tragic and heartfelt films I have ever seen. The history and reality really hit home.

Saturday 14th August 2010.


After work I went and joined the gang to play some pool and afterwards we to a club for a bit. James and Chris was so funny dancing stupid together!


Friday 13th August 2010.
The girls and I went round to Sacha's for a home cooked BBQ. Sadly it was raining and we couldn't have it outside. It was a hilarious night though especially when we were taught the party tricks. I love this group photo of us!


Thursday 12th August 2010.
Menorca 2011 is booked. The gang and I are going away to Menorca for ten days next year. The countdown for next summer begins now. We are so excited!


 Wednesday 11th August 2010.
Lotte and I went shopping to Westfields, London. It is HUGE in there!!!


 Tuesday 10th August 2010.
Just before and brother, sister and I went out to lunch we snapped this picture of our Cat just lying mindlessly in the middle of the road. She can be a funny nuisance at times!


 Monday 9th August 2010.
It was my friend Giles's 39th birthday. We had such a laugh together at the priory, I miss him.


Sunday 8th August 2010.
I still have to pinch myself that I am qualified. I love looking at some of my congratulations cards sitting proudly on my window sill :)


Saturday 7th August 2010.
Tonight was Karl's 21st birthday BBQ and I had such a nice time. I love this photo :) We have been friends since we were 13 and now we are all 21. I love them and Karl had a great birthday too!


Friday 6th August 2010.
Last day as a student nurse. Last day having to wear this uniform and the first day of summer holidays :)


Thursday 5th August 2010.
I'M A QUALIFIED NURSE! I got a 2:1 in my degree and was over the moon. It was a very emotional day as I had to say goodbye to three fantastic years with these girls.


Wednesday 4th August 2010.
Emotions were starting to run high today as I had my last ever nursing lectures. This was the last time I got the train from university to Woking. 


Tuesday 3rd August 2010.
I went out with Lotte to a curyy house. She was feeling a little low as she did not get a nursing post she really wanted. The food was so nice and the company was to. I know it cheered her up.


Monday 2nd August 2010.
We are having such a dry summer and our lawn is really suffering. My Dad mowed it today as it was getting long and it went back to its old brown colour. Ick!


Sunday 1st August 2010.
I received these authentic Amber earrings from a lady I care for each weekend. She bought as a thank you for being her carer and always "going the extra mile". I love them - a real keepsake :)


July
Saturday 31st July 2010.
I went shopping for some holiday clothes. I loved it, my debit card did not when I came home with shorts, tops, bikinis and dresses.


Friday 30th July 2010.
Due to ill health Iris has had to retire from working at the Priory. I am going to miss her stories and sing-songs so much but I know this is for the best. She loved opening her presents at her retirement party and was was lovely to see my priory family again!


Thursday 29th July 2010.
I am really enjoying going to the gym. It has become a regular routine at night to pack up my gym wear :)


Wednesday 28th July 2010.
We celebrated Laura turning 22 this week at TGI Fridays. We surprised her when they sang happy birthday in front of everyone at the restaurant.


Tuesday 27th July 2010.
I placed a picture from the ball in one of my photo frames. It takes pride of place on my desk at the moment.


Monday 26th July 2010.
I received some of the professional pictures in the post today from the graduation ball. This one is of my degree class and my favourite.


Sunday 25th July 2010.
Brockhill turned 21 this week! The building was decorated so lovely :)


Saturday 24th July 2010.
It was Jay's 21st birthday BBQ and it was great to celebrate with the whole gang there.


Friday 23rd July 2010.
The graduation ball arrived and I had a fantastic time. I felt beautiful and had brilliant company. I had the time of my life.


Thursday 22nd July 2010. 
I text my friend Becca to wish Ben, her brother, a happy birthday for me. He is a cute and really interactive kid.


Wednesday 21st July 2010.
Another sick day. Although, I finished watching the sex and the city box set at last and out it away on my shelf with my seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Woke up feel with gastroenteritis and spent the day between my bed and the toilet. Not. Fun.


Monday 19th July 2010.


I went and saw Toy Story with the lads this evening. I loved every bit of it. I don't think there was a scene where I did not laugh! I have kept the ticket in place of a photo.


Sunday 18th July 2010.
I went on a cleaning frenzy and cleaned out my room. I even removed the top of my mattress so I could hoover right under my bed. There were so many dust bunnies under there!


Saturday 17th July 2010.
I bought my shoes and bag for the graduation ball. I am getting so excited!


Friday 16th July 2010.
I loved this article in a trashy national newspaper today. Woking (my town) ratest highest in the UK for the most expensive dates. Ha! Rubbish.


Thursday 15th July 2010.
Finished. End of. YES! No more University work. I handed in my last portfolio for the course. It was kind of bitter-sweet.


Wednesday 14th July 2010.
I was manically trying to get my last EVER university essay done this evening.


Tuesday 13th July 2010.
I am kind of in love with this song right now. B.o.B ft Hayley Williams - Aeroplanes.


Monday 12th July 2010.
I bought my Graduation Ball dress today. It was on sale from £100 to £40 - it's satin green with a really nice sash. I cannot wait to wear it!


Sunday 11th July 2010.


I RSVP to Karl's birthday invite today. He turns 21 next month and having a big party for it. I am keeping the 'professionally designed' invite card for my album.


Saturday 10th July 2010.
We all went out and celebrated Becca and Kathryn's 21st birthday this evening! They had a joint do where we went out for a lovely meal and cocktails afterwards. 


Friday 9th July 2010.
I went out and celebrated Laura's 21st birthday tonight. I wore my new black rose head band. It is my new favourite accessory!


Thursday 8th July 2010.
Mum and Dad returned home from a holiday a Portugal. They bought me this lovely white cross over bag. I was so pleased because mine broke a couple months ago.

Wednesday 7th July 2010.

I went and saw Shrek Forever After in 3D today. I really liked it and thought it ended really well. The first two films are still my favourite though! I have kept the ticket to put in my album.


Tuesday 6th July 2010.
The BBQ last week accumulated a lot of glass bottles. I really need to take them to the Recycling. All 3 bags are just rattling away in my car.


Monday 5th July 2010.
I went on a big shopping spree today. I don't think my bank balance liked it too much though. I bought some gym stuff, leggings and birthday presents.


Sunday 4th July 2010.
I splurged and bought some chocolate pudding. It was gooey, chocolatey and just plain heaven!


Saturday 3rd July 2010.
After the shenanigans from the night before the lads and I decided to relax. We all went and had a picnic in the local park. The weather was perfect!


Friday 2nd July 2010.
I had a BBQ with the lads tonight and I enjoyed every second of their company. We were messing around until 3am. I really love these guys. I am so blessed to have them.


Thursday 1st July 2010.
One of the things I take for granted is how much washing my Mum does. Since she has been away I am have been lumbered with doing it. It just builds up out of nowhere and I HATE it!




June


Wednesday 30th June 2010.
Since Mum and Dad are away I decided to do a full shop and restock the fridge. The question is how long will the food last?!?!


Tuesday 29th June 2010.
Another hot and long day at the hospital for my shift. It was so busy, I was pleased to finally have a break in our staff room.


Monday 28th June 2010.
I finally used up one of my birthday vouchers from earlier this year. I had a make-up consultation and it was SO nice to be pampered and try on different make up. This is a really rubbish photo but I felt so pretty afterwards!


Sunday 27th June 2010.
It was the hottest day of the year today so far - 30 degrees! I went round Becca's house and we cooked ourselves a BBQ. I love summer!


Saturday 26th June 2010.
It was such a lovely and hot day today and I had to work. In my breaks I made sure I sat outside and enjoyed the weather!


Friday 25th June 2010.


I had my first day at the gym today. Picture to come.


Thursday 24th June 2010.


My Mum has been busy organising my Gran's surprise 80th birthday party this year. We received an acceptance card from My Gran's best friend so I have kept that as a keepsake. I am really looking forward to the day!


Wednesday 23rd June 2010.


I had my gym induction at LA fitness this afternoon. I am using the appointment card to place into album. 


Tuesday 22nd June 2010.
Had to do a long day at St.Peter's today - getting up was made so much easier with it being so sunny. It puts me in a good mood.


Monday 21st June 2010.
I joined the gym today. I am going to get fit and I loved my goody bag for inducting :)


Sunday 20th June 2010.
Happy Birthday to my Mum! We all had a family BBQ and she loved her Phantom of the Opera tickets.


Saturday 19th June 2010.
I had a really lazy day but spent a lot of it preparing my Mum's birthday presents.


Friday 18th June 2010.
Lotte and I went out for as meal after seeing 'Letters to Juliet' in the cinema. It was a sweet film and it was even sweeter when I had Key Lime Pie for dessert. YUM!


Thursday 17th June 2010.
I hate being stuck in traffic jams. Especially when it is gloriously sunny outside.


Wednesday 16th June 2010.
Andy has a new puppy and she is beautiful! Her name is India (Indy for short) and she was so cuddly to hold, stroke and pat. I love her colour - a chocolate Labrador.


Tuesday 15th June 2010.
There is a nursery attached to the hospital where I work and they are learning about the weather. They have decorated their fence with wellies and I just thought it was adorable when I parked up next to it this evening.


Monday 14th June 2010.
I went shopping today and bought the entire Sex and the City collection. I love this show but still have not seen many of the seasons. It was a good price as well.


Sunday 13th June 2010.
I was in the cleaning mood and hoovered out my car. It was a mess and looked brand spanking beautiful when I was done. I even hoovered my Mum's car out too!


Saturday 12th June 2010.
World Cup fever officially hit England today and these England car flags are everywhere. We drew 1-1 with the USA.


Friday 11th June 2010.
I went disco bowling with the lads and Tambra. I came last and bowled appallingly. However, all the funky lights and music was good!


Thursday 10th June 2010.
I got the second batch of signatures for my registration. Just another 5 more to go!


Wednesday 9th June 2010.
I handed in my dissertation today. I could not have wiped the smile off my face if I tried!!!!!!!! So happy!!!!!!


Tuesday 8th June 2010.
I spent most of the night determined to get my dissertation done! And I did =]


Monday 7th June 2010.
I needed to recharge my batteries for a late shift at work. This did the trick and it was yummy too!


Sunday 6th June 2010.
Summertime Ball!!! It was such a good day and the sunshine came out. I saw 15 music acts all of which were awesome! The best were Jason Derulo, Scouting for Girls and Dizzee Rascal :)


Saturday 5th June 2010.
I went out to Oceana with the girls from work tonight. It was so much fun to let my hair down. This was funniest photo from the night. In all our photos we have some stranger we don't know in them!


Friday 4th June 2010.
After a good day's sleep I went bowling with the boys and Tambra. We went to the arcade afterwards and I was addicted to these 10p machines!


Thursday 3rd June 2010.
Night shift number 2! I had to walk down the main hospital corridor to get a drug chart signed. It was really eerie considering in the day time this corridor is heaving.


Wednesday 2nd June 2010.
I did a night shift tonight and I have to get sleep the next morning for another night shift. My curtains are really light and let the sun in so I made a make shift blind out of a towel and my sleeping bag haha. 


Tuesday 1st June 2010.
I got the first batch of my signatures to be signed onto the nursing register in August :)


June
Monday 31st May 2010.


I have no photo from today either. Although, it was a bank holiday and all I did was dissertation work all day.


Sunday 30th May 2010.
We all went for a BBQ round Andy's this evening. It was really chilled, we even went through Jim's wallet to see if we could find his embarrassing driver's license photo.


Saturday 29th May 2010.
My sister's Cat, Bramble, has taken hanging out with me on my bed.


Friday 28th May 2010.

Thursday 27th May 2010.
Summertime Ball tickets arrived today!!!! So excited.


Wednesday 26th May 2010.
I HATE jean shopping but today I found the best fitting pair of jeans ever. There were only £10 in a sale - bargain!


Tuesday 25th May 2010.


Same happened here again but I do have the photo in my album so that's the main thing. I had my second hepatitis B injection today. It hurt a lot more than the other one did.


Monday 24th May 2010.


I deleted the photo after I got them printed and forgot to upload to here. It was a picture of  a sunset at my hospital. It was the hottest day of the year so far and I had just done a 14.5 hour shift in it. Safe to say it was hot!


Sunday 23rd May 2010.
Clear blue skies, 27 degrees and flips flops - PERFECTION!


Saturday 22nd May 2010.
We celebrated James's (a.k.a Yeoman, first left) 21st birthday today. They all went for a meal but I joined them for drinks afterwards.


Friday 21st May 2010.
The end is in site with my dissertation. Just one more chapter and an introduction to go! Tonight I rubbishly planned my appendix. My writing is awful, it is usually much neater!


Thursday 20th May 2010.
After a tiring day on placement I came home to find this package from Amanda in California! I won her blog contest a few months back and this was my prize. Ring, nail varnish and handmade earrings. It put the best smile on my face.




Wednesday 19th May 2010.


Went to the pub quiz with the lads and Tambra. We came second, even if we did cheat with Google on my Blackberry :) I have kept our results sheet to put in the album.


Tuesday 18th May 2010.
I run out of petrol so quickly, it's unfair!


Monday 17th May 2010.
The girls and I went round to Sacha's flat for Chinese food, Singstar and good old girly catch up. It was so nice to see them!


Sunday 16th May 2010.
The weather was pants today so the lads, Tambra and I went bowling. I won! :)


Saturday 15th May 2010.
I finished Angie Smith's book tonight. The way she documents her faith, love for her daughter and accepts death is admiral. If you need a book to read, this is keeper for the bookshelf.


Friday 14th May 2010.
Appleby has been a lazy bum all day lying on the shed roof.


Thursday 13th May 2010.
I received all the documentation about my sponsor child. Wilson who is 7 years lives in Ecuador. I adore him already!!!


Wednesday 12th May 2010.
It was such a horrible and cold day at university today. The building that looks like a spaceship is my nursing faculty.




Tuesday 11th May 2010.
Even though in the summer I hate it when the light shines through my curtains. I do love it when the sun sets. It lights my room up so beautifully. I wish this picture did it more justice.


Monday 10th May 2010.


I started my final placement ever (hopefully!) as a student nurse today. I have kept my handover sheet as a "keepsake" from my first day there.


Sunday 9th May 2010.
I caught up on some film viewing today. I watched Nick and Norah's Infinite Play list - I loved it!




Saturday 8th May 2010.
I went and saw The Last Song today in the cinema. It was a good movie. I dislike Miley Cyrus in general but it was a great adaptation on the book by Nicholas Sparks. The cinema ticket will be in this slot today.


Friday 7th May 2010.
I spent all day in the library doing my dissertation. I was pleased I got a lot done though!


Thursday 6th May 2010.
I voted for the Liberal Democrats. United Kingdom Election Day!


Wednesday 5th May 2010.
I went and saw The Black Eyed Peas at the o2 Arena tonight. Their show was immense!!! They performed all their old and new songs. The highlight for me was 'Where is the Love?' - they really got the crowd involved on that one.


Tuesday 4th May 2010.
It was my good friend James's 21st birthday today. So I text him a happy birthday message to let him know I wished him a very happy birthday!


Monday 3rd May 2010.
I went shopping in Westfield today and it was HUGE! I am surprised I didn't get lost. I bought Avatar as my sisters birthday present. I also bought Role Models and Nick and Nora's Ultimate Play-list as they were on offer.


Sunday 2nd May 2010.
Lou Lou has come home!!! All be it for only a month but it was so nice to see her again =]


Saturday 1st May 2010.
The Glee soundtrack is all I listen to at the moment when driving. I am a true Gleek!


April
Friday 30th April 2010.
This is not a great picture but there are loads of blossom on the ground which comes out in Spring. When it starts to fall it can only signal one thing coming - SUMMER!


Thursday 29th April 2010.
The local cinema were doing a great deal of a meal out and cinema ticket for £10! Becca and I snapped up the chance to go so we went to Noodle Nation for dinner and it was good. Afterwards we went and saw 'Date Night' which was much funnier than I expected.


Wednesday 28th April 2010.
I very rarely get a chance to have a bath as I am a shower type person. But when I get the opportunity to have a long soak in the tub - I love it!


Tuesday 27th April 2010.
I was stuck having my hepatitis B inoculations today whilst it was so sunny outside.



Monday 26th April 2010.
A day of retail therapy was needed so went to Staines shopping with Lotte. We finished off having an ice cream in the sunshine :)


Sunday 25th April 2010.
I worked all day at Brockhill doing care work. Considering it was meant to be the hottest day of the year the weather was quite a disappointment.


Saturday 24th April 2010.
Finally got round to washing my Car in the glorious sunshine. I made my sister help too so to get it done quicker. My Clio looks much shiner (and cleaner!) now.


Friday 23rd April 2010.
I left my placement today and felt quite sad to leave. Everyone was so lovely and I felt my work was really appreciated. I am going to miss seeing this sign as I walked in everyday.


Thursday 22nd April 2010.
I managed to get tickets to this year's Capital FM Summetime Ball. I am going to take my friend Becca as her 21st birthday present! So excited to see Jason Derulo and Scouting for Girls play.


Wednesday 21st April 2010.
I finally booked tickets to go and see Oli in Menorca today. I loved putting this as my facebook status to surprise him. I love this too!


Tuesday 20th April 2010.
Did some more journalling of my 365 album today.


Monday 19th April 2010.
I made it a priority today for Glee to be saved into the Sky personal planner. This show is my guilty pleasure!


Sunday 18th April 2010.
I was not too pleased about working today but the sunny weather made the grounds look beautiful. It's a pleasure to work with scenery like this.


Saturday 17th April 2010.
Lotte turned 21 today and she had a girly party to celebrate it with. It was brilliant to catch up with all the college girls again and this group shot shows how much we have changed.


Friday 16th April 2010.
I went out for Cocktails with these lovely ladies and what a lovely night it was too!


Thursday 15th April 2010.
I had the worst back pain today to the point that when I was walking I was leaning to my right side. I went to my GP and he prescribed some antibiotics. Pleased to say I am pain free now :)


Wednesday 14th April 2010.
I got an afternoon off to do my dissertation as my mentor was away teaching. Helen caught a picture as a joke to prove to my mentor I actually did some work haha.


Tuesday 13th April 2010.
I spent the evening watching a new film I brought on DVD. 'The Boat That Rocks' is a real feel good movie and I thoroughly recommend it.


Monday 12th April 2010.
I started back on my community placement today. However, it was made brighter with Sacha texting me t say that she is free to meet up soon. I have missed this girl muchly!


Sunday 11th April 2010.
After a looonnnnng shift at work all I wanted to do was get into bed and sleep. One problem: this Cat was hogging my space.


Saturday 10th April 2010.
The stairs got carpeted today and it looks so much better! Just the new settee to go and the lounge renovation is done - finally!


Friday 9th April 2010.
It was such a lovely and sunny day today. I spent the day mooching around and being in the garden.


Thursday 8th April 2010.
Not the most attractive photo but today I indulged and got my hair all coloured. I loved the results with much lighter tones.


Wednesday 7th April 2010.
Today marked another day of dissertation work. It is really starting to become tiresome. I feel so near to finishing but in truth I am not even halfway there!


Tuesday 6th April 2010.
We are currently waiting to have our stairs re-carpeted. So in preparation we had to strip the stairs and take the back-boarding off.


Monday 5th April 2010.
My mouse decided to stop working halfway through typing my dissertation. It was annoying. Luckily my Mum saved the day and bought me a new one - thanks Mum! :)


Sunday 4th April 2010.
Easter Eggs!!! Yummy!!!


Saturday 3rd April 2010.
I hoovered, polished and organised my room much better today. I was very proud!


Friday 2nd April 2010.
The worst part about coming home from a trip away is the unpacking. EUGH!!!!


Thursday 1st April 2010.
Oh how I wished I lived in that Castle! You never know...


March


Wednesday 31st March 2010.
This is the 'I have a dream parade' where all the Disney characters came out on their floats to meet the crowd. The music soundtrack to this was so good!


Tuesday 30th March 2010.
Lotte and I bought Minnie Ears - we looked odd in the crowd if we did not wear them!


Monday 29th March 2010.
On our way to Paris at 06.20am!




Sunday 28th March 2010.
The day before our trip to Paris, Lotte and I decided to stay in a hotel so that we were near the Eurostar station as we were getting up at 4.45am!


Saturday 27th March 2010.
Lotte and I went shopping for her 21st birthday dress next month. After 8 outfit changes this is the one she chose :)


Friday 26th March 2010.
I went round my friend Frankie's house for help with my literature review. Her Cat 'Itchy' was adorable and just wanted to be stroked all the time!


Thursday 25th March 2010.
I was doing an Asthma clinic today and this is my new toy :) It is an Expiratory device which checks that the patients are inhaling enough air to get their medication into them. 


Wednesday 24th March 2010.
The girls and I went out for a meal tonight for a catch up! This picture was brilliant to take because we were so busy trying to cram into the lens position we forgot to smile properly when the shutter timed out! Good night though.


Tuesday 23rd March 2010.
I received the Adie Camp CD in the post today. Her voice is beautiful!


Monday 22nd March 2010.
I announced the winners on my first blog giveaway today! The response was awesome and I was chuffed Stacie and Callie won.


Sunday 21st March 2010.
This is one of the reasons I love Spring! Sunshine, Colour and a signal that Summer is coming.


Saturday 20th March 2010.
During my two hour break at work today I set about really focussing on my dissertation project.


Friday 19th March 2010.
I went out for a drink tonight and on my way to the car I got caught up in the pouring rain. Hence why it is such a rubbish picture but I still think it looks beautiful.


Thursday 18th March 2010.
This is my confirmation letter for my job offer which I accepted. It felt so good to see it in writing. It's official!


Wednesday 17th March 2010.
It was so neat to see my name on the computer screen at my nursing placement this afternoon. By having my name as a session holder I can now run my own clinics and have my own appointments :)


Tuesday 16th March 2010.
I went and joined a different Nursing team today and it was BUSY! The office looked like a bomb had gone off.


Monday 15th March 2010.
My two Cats - Appleby and Bramble - don't really get along as sisters. They tend to stay out of each others way. But it was lovely to see them sleeping together on my bed this afternoon.


Sunday 14th March 2010.
Mother's day today! I brought my Mum a big bunch of flowers - she loved them!


Saturday 13th March 2010.
I had such a boring day doing dissertation work. Hence the random picture with Appleby.


Friday 12th March 2010.
My hair was getting unmanageable. Therefore, I booked an appointment to see my hairdresser on the same day. I had my fringe cut to the other side of my head and had just a general trim. It feels much lighter and tame!


Thursday 11th March 2010.
I wish I had a better photo for what this day represented. I had my first job interview for the staff nurse position on the surgical unit. I got it and was over the moon!!! This was part of my interview outfit.


Wednesday 10th March 2010.


No picture today. Instead I am using the ticket from the cinema. I went and saw Alice in Wonderland. It was really good, a thumbs up from me!


Tuesday 9th March 2010.
I helped run the health clinics on placement today. I worked alongside Freda, my mentor, in her clinical room.


Monday 8th March 2010.
I love driving home from placement and it is still light outside. Just another reminder that summer is on its way!


Sunday 7th March 2010.
I went to a Chinese restaurant with Becca tonight. We got Fortune Cookies - I was thrilled to be opening mine!


Saturday 6th March 2010.
These are £40 worth of the most comfortable nursing shoes. I needed new ones and these were perfect!


Friday 5th March 2010.
'Red sky at night, Shepherds delight' - this sunset outside my bedroom window was beautiful to watch.


Thursday 4th March 2010.
I got an interview for the staff nurse position. I am a mix of very excited and nervous. Wish me luck!!! 


Wednesday 3rd March 2010.
My desk is slowly getting messier and more unorganised!!!


Tuesday 2nd March 2010.
I am not really a fan of autobiographies but I loved this book from my favourite Geordie duo. It reflected exactly what they are like on television. Their friendship is an awesome testimony.


Monday 1st March 2010.
Spring has sprung! It was a glorious day today and put me in a really good mood even if I was ill with a cold.


February
Sunday 28th February 2010.
Began reading Matthew Turner's 'Hear No Evil' today. It is very engaging to read and it feels like he is in the room reading it to me!


Saturday 27th February 2010.
Had the new carpet laid down in the living room. It is 'Mocca Chocolate' - I love the feel of walking on it.


Friday 26th February 2010.
Lady Gaga picture to come.


Gaga ooo-la-la!!! I went and saw Lady Gaga tonight and joined her Monster's Ball. It was mental and very showbiz! She is a much better performer than I thought. I had such a crazy night!


Thursday 25th February 2010.
It rained and it poured. I had to walk in the torrential rain to my car today from nursing shift. Days like these make me want to snuggle in bed.


Wednesday 24th February 2010.
This is a quick snapshot of Appleby sleeping on the dining chairs. They have moved into the kitchen due to the dining room holding all our living room furniture due to the renovation. She has perfect view of the fridge here - typical!


Tuesday 23rd February 2010.


Inserted here is a copy of my handover sheet from shift today. I felt I had really performed and dealt with the stress very well. I walked away from shift tired but desperate to qualify! Due to confidentiality reasons, I will not be putting the handover here.


Monday 22nd February 2010.
Started some work on my Leadership portfolio for Nursing. It is due April.


Sunday 21st February 2010.
My Aunt Lucy gave me this beautiful silver compact mirror as a late birthday gift. It is very 'me'.

Saturday 20th February 2010.
It was Andy's (first right) 21st birthday. We went to a nightclub and had so much fun! We all bought hats, drank and danced stupid amounts :)

Friday 19th February 2010.
I saw Kelly Clarkson at Wembley Arena, London, tonight. One of the most genuine and heartfelt performances I have seen by an artist. (My ticket will be my 365 album snapshot.)

Thursday 18th February 2010.
This a quick snapshot of the building I work in at the hospital - Abbey Wing. I was just leaving my night shift to go home to bed.


Wednesday 17th February 2010.
I started a night shift tonight. I hate them! However, relaxing in the staff room during my 2 hour break was nice :)


Tuesday 16th February 2010.
I handed in my first Nursing application form today! All I can do is hope.


Monday 15th February 2010.
I did something amazing today. I gave blood.


Sunday 14th February 2010.
The most romantic day of the year was spent decorating our lounge some more. The fire place is in, new light fittings installed and paint on walls. Just the new carpet, new curtains and new settees to do!


Saturday 13th February 2010.
I entered the world of Baltimore tonight and saw Hairspray the Musical. I went with Lotte and the show was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! (I will be using my ticket in my 365 album for this day though.)


Friday 12th February 2010.
Appleby has taken to lying on top of me when she sleeps. I think she looks cute but I feel bad when I have to move and it wakes her up! She is not a fan of me then.




Thursday 11th February 2010.
It was worth the wait in white gold :)


Wednesday 10th February 2010.
Oli sent me these amazing Westwood Rocks bracelets. They are my 21st birthday present from him. It is safe to say they are are gorgeous. The green is my favourite - Willow Green.


Tuesday 9th February 2010.
My older sister got me Armani perfume for my birthday. I wore it today and everyone said how lush it smelt.


Monday 8th February 2o10.
I turned 21 today!!! Here I am with the cake my parents had professionally made. I had such a great day!


Sunday 7th February 2010.
Tonight I went to Bluebeckers, to celebrate my 21st birthday, with some of my best friends. I was feeling a little poorly but they made my evening.


Saturday 6th February 2010.
I received this beaded bracelet from Laura and Lotte. It is from one of my favourite jewellery shops, Westwood Rocks. They had it engraved with my birth date and the year I turn 21! I love it so much.


Friday 5th February 2010.
My Cat, Appleby, turned 6 years old today. I have had her since she was a kitten and I love her to pieces. She spent the evening in bed with me whilst I watched the Television :)


Thursday 4th February 2010.
After a long day of nursing on placement, I was shattered. I had no energy to cook afterwards so I indulged in popcorn chicken and chips. YUMMY!


Wednesday 3rd February 2010.
Due to the amount of clothes I stuff in my drawers it is not a surprise they collapsed. I had to super glue them back together.


Tuesday 2nd February 2010.
The next step in decorating our lounge was having our new fire place installed today. It makes the room look much more modern.


Monday 1st February 2010.
I started my first nursing placement for 2010. I am on a gynaecology ward which I hope will be interesting. I am not sure whether I am looking forward to wearing the student nurse uniform again though :/.

January 2010.

Sunday 31st January 2010.
My dresser is getting increasingly more messy and chaotic. I really need to clear it up as it is crying out for a little organisation.

Saturday 30th January 2010.
I won my first blog give-away on Amanda's site. I won some earrings :)

Friday 29th January 2010.
Our lounge is currently getting decorated. My Sister, Brother and I were left with the job of sanding down the radiators.

Thursday 28th January 2010.
I worked my last bank shift at my waitress job. One of the lovely work girls, Theresa, made me Vanilla cupcakes. She is amazing at baking and it was such a lovely early birthday present!

Wednesday 27th January 2010.
I received this 'Thank You' card from Amanda in Lincoln, Illinois. I had sent her a book for the bloom book club. It sits proudly on my computer desk. (Instead of this photo, the actual card will go in its place).

I knew it wouldn't be easy but tonight I said goodbye to Lou Lou for 6 months!!! We had fun talking about her move to Barbados, eating Chinese food and being in each others company. I am going to miss her so much.

Monday 25th January 2010.
My Cat Appleby is becoming really bold and naughty. She is getting into a habit of jumping on the kitchen work surfaces and we are all finding it irritating and not to mention unhygienic!

Sunday 24th January 2010.
This picture says so much! On Sundays I try and do nothing if I can help it. So had a curry (with poppadum!) my favourite program in the background whilst in my pyjamas lazing in my room. Perfect!

Saturday 23rd January 2010.
Worked a 7am-10pm shift today. It was so nice halfway through to have a break in the staff room reading my favourite magazine.

Friday 22nd January 2010.
Lou Lou (2nd right) had her leaving drinks as she leaves for Barbados this week. It was a bitter-sweet evening.

Thursday 21st January 2010.

After a LONG day at work I came home and made dinner for myself. I love being lazy in my pyjamas!

Wednesday 20th January 2010.

Dancing very badly in my living room. I am playing Just Dance on the Wii! My favourite dance routine is 'Hot n Cold' by Katy Perry! 
Tuesday 19th January 2010.

I love this Wii game! It is great cardio, fun and so pleased when the postman posted it through my door this morning!

Monday 18th January 2010.

Enough was enough and I decided to start the research part for my dissertation. The arduous task was made brighter by listening to my i-pod though.

Sunday 17th January 2010.
After sledging the other day I got my new Mac coat dirty so I had to get it dry cleaned. So pleased to wear it again! It goes with anything!

Saturday 16th January 2010.
Portugal 2010 it is! I met my friends to book our summer holiday. I am so excited! Plus I got to go shopping as well :)


Friday 15th January 2010.
I did the late shift today at my bank waitresses job. I went on a cleaning frenzy in the kitchen. To the point I had to colour co-ordinate the spice shelf :)


Thursday 14th Janaury 2010.
I took the train into University today as the roads were too icy to drive on. This is the stop where I get off to walk to campus. I love that it also has my university logo as well :)


Wednesday 13th January 2010.
At work today there was loads of snow so I decided to sledge down the hill on a long baking tin. I would not stop squealing!


Tuesday 12th January 2010
I had to do my CV today as the university notified my class that in March we can start applying for nursing positions. My sister snapped a picture of me reading it out to her.


Monday 11th January 2010
I am so pleased to have finished my essay finally. I also bought and wrapped Dad's birthday present today. I felt after all the headache brought about by doing the essay I deserved to go shopping :)


Sunday 10th January 2010.
I did a guest post for Laura's 'LFS Introducing' blog. It was about my experiences as a student nurse. I love how it turned out and so pleased to have done it.


Saturday 9th January 2010.
I love snow and this was the scene, just after sunrise, from the window where I work.


Friday 8th January 2010.
I spent 3 hours putting together my project 365 kit today. I colour coordinated it, put in the stickers and started writing out my journalling cards. I just love how it is already coming together.


Thursday 7th January 2010.
Sacha (middle) turned 21 today! She was meant to be home in Ireland celebrating with family but due to snow her flight was cancelled. She was really upset so Becca and I got Chinese take out, singstar, cake and party poppers to surprise her. Her face was priceless!




Wednesday 6th January 2010.
The south of England got 14 inches of snow today! Therefore, it was classed as a SNOW DAY. I made a snowman with my sister. I called him Percy :)


Tuesday 5th January 2010.



Today was filled with a lot of essay work. Yet, I found time to wrap up two books to be shipped to the USA for the Bloom Book Club. 'Same Kind of Different As Me' is the first faith based book I have read. I love it!


Monday 4th January 2010.



Tonight was a 'late' Christmas meal with my work friends. We went to the 'Jaipur' Indian Restaurant. It was one of the best Indians I have ever had and the the company was ace to!


Sunday 3rd January 2010.



Today my blog got its revamp of a new three way column design and linking buttons. I had fun exploring it all.


Saturday 2nd January 2010.



Today my parents packed all the Christmas decorations and lights up in the attic for another year. The rooms in the house look so bare.


Friday 1st January 2010.


The clock struck midnight and we were all in celebration of 2010 at Lou Lou's New Year party.
